The Battle of Nepthys Madrigal was a battle between the Imperium and Chaos.[1a]

History

The shrine world of Nepthys Madrigal[1a] (located in Ultima Segmentum)[1b] is the last bastion of resistance against an invasion led by the Great Unclean One Vileblight. However the Sisters of Battle resist and contain every outbreak of Vileblight’s initial gambit, the Deathly Pox. In frustration, the Great Unclean One calls in an old debt with the Dark Apostle Kor Daradan. Within the month, the Word Bearers attack Nepthys Madrigal. As mortals, they are not repelled by the banishment rites, and cross the barriers that kept the Daemons out. They take the fight to the Sisters of Battle there with such fury they force a full-scale evacuation of the populace. The conflict becomes a war of attrition in which the Chaos Space Marines prioritise casting down the temples and altars of the Imperial Creed, disrupting their wards. The planet falls to a wave of contagion and the subsequent Plaguebearer assault.[1a]
