In 064952.M41 the world was assaulted by the Ork Mek-Boss Buzzgob during Waaagh! Garaghak. Despite a strong resistance from the planet's garrison, including the 49th Terrax Guard, it was evacuated and fell in 723952.M41. Buzzgob turned the captured Kastorel-Novem (renamed Mekslag-Ikks by Orks) into his personal manufacturing base. In an attempt to slow the Waaagh! down by crippling Ork facilities on Mekslag-Ikks and killing Mek-Boss Buzzgob, the Imperium launched a surgical Raid on Kastorel-Novem led by Raven Guard Space Marines and Elysian Drop Troops Imperial Guard in 541992.M41. The mission resulted in failure, with the Imperial forces all but eliminated. In 023996.M41 Buzzgob used Mekslag-Ikks as a foothold to capture the Imperial Shrine World of Magdelene IX. As of 995999.M41 Orks of Waaagh! Garaghak are mustering on Mekslag-Ikks to continue their war against the Imperium.[Needs Citation]
