The Sangraal Campaign was a battle of the Horus Heresy fought in 009.M31.

A hand-picked Imperial Fists force was dispatched from Terra on a daring raid to capture the antidote to a biological weapon being deployed at the loyalist base on the Hive World of Herkaliaum. After recovering the antidote from Dark Mechanicum gene-labs, the heavily outnumbered Fists fought their way through the underhives of Herkaliaum to deliver it to loyalist forces. While the population of the loyalists at Gramercie sub-hive is saved, the virus soon spreads to the traitor ranks. Herkaliaum was quickly liberated, and the legend of the "salvation run" became a rallying cry for loyalists across the Sector.[1]
