  • Cleansing of Garial-Fall (Unknown Date) - The Tarantulas Chapter, along with the 15th, 70th and 93rd Karadmium Regiments of the Astra Militarum and Battlefleet Ultima Secundus, answered the call of Inquisitor Ebrehem Arkannis, who was secretly a member of the Radical Istvaanian organisation called the Elucidium, to purge Garial-Fall, a poorly defended and administered Imperial planet. Garial-Fall harboured both a Genestealer Cult and Ariale, an Inquisitor of the Ordo Xenos who had infiltrated the cult under the guise of a Magus, and was an enemy of the Elucidium.
