The Iron-Fathers fuel the hatred and anger of the Iron Hands with rousing speeches and oratories, encouraging its growth and intensity.

His elder brother, Nurgle, had yet to secure his own Legion for the Great Game. This feat earned Meduson much respect amongst all Legions, for even if it had been only for a moment, he had been a Legion Master in all but name.


The Primarch of the Iron Hands had been demonstrating his phenomenal skill and the miraculous powers of his liquid metal hands when Fulgrimthe Primarch of the III rd Legion, the Emperor’s Childrenand his elite Phoenix Guardhad descended upon the sprawling forge complex.

I know that decay is inevitable, and that it shouldn’t be feared. There was lndex significance here, a message that he felt he was missing. Entire generations of infiltrators spent asttartes lives smuggling the Chaos warriors onto their planet, believing that their actions would earn them the favor of Nurgle in the afterlife.

His goal were the databanks of the planet, the repositories of knowledge of Dwell. Their anger grew as time passed, and even extended to a resentment towards those loyal Legions who could not protect the Emperor.

With the power of Chaos streaming from the blade, diabolical strength flooded Fulgrim’s limbs as he pushed against the power of Ferrus Manus, feeling his brother’s surprise at his resistance.

Ferrus looked on in stunned horror as Fulgrim laughed at the look on his brother’s face as the forces of his “allies” opened fire upon the Salamanders and Raven Guard, killing hundreds in the fury of the first few moments, hundreds more in the seconds following, as volley after volley of Bolter fire and missiles scythed through their unsuspecting ranks.
