The Fallaxian Scourging was a Daemonic Incursion in 927.M41 on the world of Fallax. During the battle, the renowned armoured siege units of the Hammeront IV Regiment under the command of Grand Marshal Lourgant, are wiped out when the army of Daemons overwhelms the Imperial forces. Such is the Departmento Munitorum’s administrative backlog that the Hammeront IV’s demise goes unreported, and they are subsequently ordered to the liberation of the Abraxis Citadel on Prassium. When the Hammeront fail to deploy as ordered, the Departmento Munitorum charges the regiment with desertion. They are all posthumously sentenced to death.
