|Class:||former Industrial World[1a] now — Dead World[1b]|
Ioline was an Imperial factory world, but in the 999.M41 with starting of the Diamor Campaign it fall to forces of Chaos. During the first phase of battle, Ioline was attacked by Black Legion and their Word Bearer allies, who slaughtered the defenders of planet's pan-polar hives. Valiant Imerial warriors proudly stand against the enemy, and the southern habs of the Iron States managed to Push off the Chaos forces. But Sorcerer Lord Xorphas of the Black Legion turned the planet's polar defence silos against the south hemisphere. Nuclear warheads rained down on trails of fire, destroying everything in the southern part of the planet, reducing it to the irradiated wasteland.[1a]
After that started the period of Chaos forging - as the Iron Warriors' Warpsmith Althedrak transformed the industrial potential of the planet to the hellish Hex Infernium. With the tainted craft he started to create the Daemon Engines there and throw them through the warp to the planet of Amethal to reinforce the Chaos forces.
When the Blood Angels foughting on Amethal found out about it, Karlaen and his brothers traveled to the Ioline and, with the help of Adeptus Mechanicus seccret cogitator device, managed to descend there undetected by enemy. Foughting with the evil Cultists, Black Legion heretics and Daemon Engines of all kind, Blood Angels at last faced with the mighty Lord of Skulls that started to maim proud warriors. Only arriving of Sanguinor, who slayed the evil engine, saved the Blood Angels. Next the Sanguinor went to the Hex Infernium and activated the vortex grenade in the base of its central structure. Seeing that the all Chaos complex started to collapse, Blood Angels left the doomed planet. After the destruction of the Hex Infernium the mighty wave of energy gone over all of the planet, supposedly destroying everything on its surface.
