Sub-Sector Eligaea encompasses the most direct route from Ultramar to Caluphel Prime. The coreward planets have long looked to Macragge or to Terra for protection. From this foundation, Warmaster Jedhansen’s Crusade pushes steadily outward to Caluphel.
To the south is the Occulta Manticora Sub-Sector, under the protection of the noble Salamanders and their Crusade of Fire. Jedhansen will need their support for he faces enemies on two fronts. To the north is the Gluoroth Sub-Sector and the disastrous pillaging of the Death Guard.
Directly between Jedhansen and Caluphel is the newly arisen Waaagh Zagstompa. Warboss Skullkrak has been uniting smaller Waaaghs under his banner and shows no sign of stopping.
And while war unfolds on Purgatory and threatens Dicerge and Cantho, a slow moving fleet of Space Hulks drift towards Imperial Space… It is unclear if this is a machination of Skullkrak or some new enemy.
Like the rest of the Imperium, Erigaea is a hot warzone. Jedhansen must reinforce what he has taken so far with his campaign, prevent further incursions of Death Guard and Orks, all while preventing the unfolding disaster on Caluphel. Hopefully the 42nd Auxiliary Armored Fist Battalion will turn the tide.
Headquarters for Warmaster Jedhansen, Bereznato is actually the name of a supersized gas giant orbiting the system’s star. The gas giant has 15 habitable moons, all supporting hiveworld infrastructure. The moons are varied in environment, from agriculture dominant to troop-bearing population generators. Immense system defenses and regular Imperial Navy patrols have kept Bereznato free from Chaos incursions so far.
An ccean world covered with scrubby archipelagos and island chains. Imperial troops are arriving in force to reinforce the planet in preparation for Skullkrak’s Waaagh to cross the warp storm boundary. Natives who have fallen from compliance are waging a low-level guerrilla war against the Imperials, claiming desecration of their ocean.
Homeworld for the 42nd Auxiliary Armored Fist Battalion. The Warmaster has entrusted the Caluphel thrust to the Armored Fist while he contends with the Waaagh. Cantho is a modern world set about with gothic medieval infrastructure and societal structures. However, the militant tradition of its aristrocracy is a perfect fit for the Armored Fist command. Fresh levies are being raised to ship out to Caluphel and brave the transit across the warp storm and the intervening Waaagh. Sooner or later, war will come to Cantho as well.
Another ripe target for Skullkrak, Haistro is a tank forge world of the Mechanicum. Haistro’s factories are the engine behind the Armored Fist’s might. They are also a tempting target.
A massive jungle world with dense flora structures, this planet generate a type of pollen that feed superfast growth of fungal life forms. Coupled with fast-growing fauna monsters, it should not be surprising that a current Waaagh sprang from Protogo. Skullkrak was rumored to be a mere squib a few years ago, but has grown emormously in stature and inpower. His Waaagh has encapsulated other Waaaghs, repeatedly doubling and tripling in size into an unstoppable green wave.
A desert planet sculpted by high winds that rip through red rock fissures and around massive super volcanoes. A desolate planetscape is seemingly designed to enable ambush warfare. Skullkrak’s forces have apparently found ancient tech, or else Jedhansen would have ordered Exterminatus on the planet.
Current world under fierce contention between the Warmaster and Skullkrak. Pergatory is a massive industrial planet, its hives devoted to tank and heavy armament production for the imperium. Much of the hive infrastructure lies in ruins after three years of solid war.
A Forge World lost to the Dark Mechanicum. This volcanic planet is a choice target for the Crusade of Fire should they choose to move north. But the defending Titans of Minotaur may be too great a foe to tackle alone.
