Chapter HistoryEdit

Notable CampaignsEdit

  • Scouring of Hexdragon XXIV (345.M38) - During the Scouring of Hexdragon XXIV a situation arose where a Space Marine Chapter was forced to adopt unique battle formations for a single campaign. This usually occurs when there are high levels of battle casualties, or due to a lack of a piece of vital equipment, and at other times a unique formation is devised by an Astartes Force Commander to fulfill a specific battlefield role. During this particular campaign all three of these circumstances occurred in a single battle. Elements of the newly arrived Iron Shield Chapter had suffered severe casualties amongst their Assault Marines during the assault on the Despot of Hexdragon's battle fortress. With all members of the Chapter's Battle Companies fully engaged, Commander Shakirax ordered the troops of the 10th Scout Company to be issued with Jump Packs, so that they could fulfill the assault role instead. Despite suffering casualties in excess of 90%, the Scout Marines overwhelmed the defenders of the Obsidian Tower, and the fortress fell.
