Forgefane boasted some of the most formidable defenses ever seen; massive citadels and bastions covered the landscape; each protected by miles of trenches, mine fields and razorwire as well as void shields and vast quantities of ordinance. The planet also garrisoned an entire Grand Company of Iron Warriors, including Chaos Titans and Defilers.[1]

The Fall of Forgefane

Forgefane's defenses were more than adequate to stop the initial Tyranid landings with flak batteries, warp-powered laser batteries, killing fields and miles of trenches and mines even stopping multiple assaults by Bio-Titans, Gargoyles and Harridans. It wasn't until the Hive Fleet launched attacks from beneath the fortress, using Trygons to tunnel into the fortresses followed by hordes of gaunts, that the fall truly began. These underground assaults broke supply lines and isolated defenses, even managing to annihilate over 600 Defilers in a couple of hours. Shortly after, the Fortress World fell.[1]
