Danelloth Falls

After weeks of holding out on the outpost of Danelloth the final nail in the coffin was Nazghat’s assault on the main Imperial complex on 2606.008M42. The base was defended by the Adeptus Sororitas and they women of the Ecclesiarchy fought bravely as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart frantically organised an evacuation.

Several thousand troops were air-lifted to the waiting troop ships and then cruiser Illustrious, while the Sisters of Battle gave their lives holding the perimeter. Yard by yard, and at terrible cost, Nazghat’s Orks gained ground, eventually overrunning the last Imperial defenders. Danelloth was finally in Ork hands, and the Imperial fleet abandoned it to its fate.
