The Armageddon Wars were a series of three major conflicts fought during M41 on the Imperial Hive World of Armageddon. Because of the planet's vital strategic and economic importance to the rest of the Imperium, it has presented an inviting target to numerous enemies, and, for the same reasons, has been defended just as fiercely.

  • The Third War for Armageddon (998 M41): Ghazghkull Thraka re-invades Armageddon after decades of planning and preparation, with an even greater-sized Waaagh! Commissar Yarrick is appointed supreme commander of the defending Imperial forces. With his leadership, a combined force of PDF, Imperial Guard regiments, and Space Marines from more than twenty chapters manage to reduce the combat to attrition, with neither side achieving a decisive advantage. Ghazghkull eventually grows tired of the stalemate and withdraws, while Yarrick and the Black Templars follow in pursuit, determined to rid the galaxy of Ghazghkull for good.
