The Horus Heresy: The Scouring of Silex V
Silex V. An Earth sized, rocky planet on the far side of the Eastern Galactic Fringe. Beyond raising a handful of regiments for the Imperial Army and supplying a modest quantity of food to the wider Imperium it was not a place of note, like many hundreds of other similar planets around the Galaxy. That was before The Horus Heresy.
In the dark, and now mostly forgotten, days of the Horus Heresy every single planet, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, became as important as it could possibly be. As the Warmaster’s forces pushed ever inwards towards Terra the Loyalists entrenched themselves on every single Moon, Planet, or Asteroid that they could defend. Silex V was no exception.
The first signs of the war to come started in the silence of space. The Warp around the Silex system began to stir, at first nothing more than a whisper, before becoming a raging crescendo that rendered the Loyalist Astropaths into nothing more than babbling, spasming wretches. Then the ships of the Warmaster arrived. They didn’t bother with scout flotillas or reconnaissance craft, instead opting to leave Warpspace perilously close to the planet’s gravity and engage the Imperial fleet head on. Battleships duelled for days, grinding each other’s armour to little more than charred husks with salvo after punishing salvo, whilst troops boarded Cruisers and Carriers and fought at bloody close quarters. The engagement lasted for eight Terran days before stalling, and the commanders withdrew to opposing sides of the planet and readied their ground forces. The stalemate in orbit would not decide the fate of the planet.
To the terrified and trapped citizens of Silex V, who had watched as burning debris rained upon their lives for over a week, the unthinkable happened. Two armies of the Emperor’s Angels of Death landed on the planet. And they were preparing for war…
