Schindelgheist is an Imperial Civilised World where the greatest battle of the Gothic War was fought in 160.M41. It is located in the Sub-sector Lysades of the Gothic Sector in the Segmentum Obscurus. Schindelgheist was also the location of the Blackstone Fortress V which was one of the Blackstone Fortresses that remained in Imperial hands during the Gothic War. In 160.M41 a 3 day space battle, between the massed Chaotic warfleets of Abaddon the Despoiler and a combined fleet of starships from the Imperial Navy and the Eldar, took place above Schindelgheist in which the 12th Black Crusade was brought to an end and Abaddon and the Forces of Chaos retreated back into the Eye of Terror.
