Overview

Agripinaa Skitarii

Agripinaa exists upon the threshold of the Eye of Terror. Were it not for the defences of the Cadian System it would have fallen long ago. The planets technological bounty has led many Warpsmiths of Chaos to raid the planet, including several full-scale invasions. This has left its surface with a battered and scarred appearance. In exchange for protection, Agripinaa provides the Cadian System with most of its armaments as well as supplementing them with Skitarii forces.[6]

Agripinaa does not sit solely on the defensive however. They have a history of dispatching war fleets into the Eye of Terror to crush Forge Worlds of the Dark Mechanicus. One notable campaign was against the Dark Forge of Temporia.[8]

Full three agri-worlds supports Agripinaa with food - Yayor, Dentor and Ulthor.[10]

Thirteenth Black Crusade

Due to its proximity to the Cadian Gate, Agripinaa suffered greatly during Abaddon the Despoiler's 13th Black Crusade. The planet was invaded by an enormous World Eaters army under Kossolax the Foresworn, who sacrificed millions of its citizens over forty hours to summon a horde of Khornate Daemons, including a Bloodthirster. Eventually however, thanks to four companies of the Blood Angels, the World Eaters and their Daemonic allies were defeated and pushed off the devastated world.[3]

Following the destruction of Cadia in the Thirteenth Black Crusade, Chaos forces launched another assault on Agripinaa. Daemon Engines led by many Warpsmiths invaded the Forge World. The Cadian Diaspora proved decisive in the worlds defense.[9]
