Campaign Summary

In the wake of Horus' treachery on Istvaan III and the galaxy plunged into civil war, confusion and panic spreads along the whole Beneheventian Sub-Sector. With the ragtag survivors of the drop site massacre and shattered Imperial forces desperately trying to reach supply depots, shipyards, forge worlds and safe heavens to regroup and rearm the Lincon System has become a major focal point in the Sub-Sector. With the only Ship Yard capable of building and repairing capital ships in the sector, Yaris Station and Lincon Majoris, a Hive World rich in Admantium and production of Void ship armour, the Lincon System is a vital price that has to be controlled. Whoever controll the Lincon System will control the whole sub-sector.

Horus knows this and has redirected several fleets to the area in an effort to secure the system for his war effort. Alpha Legion sleeper cells and Word Bearer demagogues are already infiltrating the system and open revolt has flared up across the whole Beneheventian Sub-Sector as the fleets of the Warmaster closes in. Loyalists are desperately preparing for the coming onslaught and messages have been dispatched to Terra and what few reinforcements that are available are being diverted towards the Lincon System. With every passing day the storm is getting closer and soon the wrath of the arch traitor will engulf the entire Sub-Sector and not a single planet will be spared his torch…. Lincon will burn!


The sky was thick with smoke, dust and ash. Bolter fire could still be heard in the distance but compared with the sounds from the last months of fighting it was almost like a silent calm had beset the planet. Captain Sagrak of the Raven Guard, 19 Chapter – the Black Talons, surveyed the burning wrecks that covered the landscape. Here in the Ash Wastes of Lincon Majoris the battle had been the fiercest. There were still pockets of resistance all around the system but the main attack from the Traitors had been thrown back. Sagrak knew however that it would be many years until the system would be completely purged from forces of the Warmaster and already reports about sabotage and ambushes where flooding into the Imperial Command Centre. The assault on the Lincon System might be over but the Linconian Shadow War has begun…


“Then there came a day when the sun was as blood and the very air became ashes, and the men cried out for salvation but went unanswered, for the Angel of Death was with them and all was lost.”
