Gaining the attention of Warmaster Slaydo when he served with him in the Khulan War, Carnhide became a notable figure of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade. However like many commanders following the death of Slaydo and the rise of Warmaster Macaroth Carnhide fell out of favor and was relegated to second-line duties despite his many accomplishments. Nonetheless due to the overstretched officer establishment in the Crusade, he was given command of the Lyubov offensive by Lord General Cybon. In the subsequent operation Carnhide was victorious due to his liberal command style, but was soon accused by Cybon and many other commanders of incompetence and indecision, allowing his men to do as they please. Disgraced, Carnhide resigned and committed suicide.
