Cover Description

The Imperium has been brought to the edge of extinction by an ork invasion of unprecedented scale and depth. Piecemeal strikes against the invaders prove totally ineffective - for every ork fleet destroyed, five more appear. The only solution is to find and kill the orks' warlord - The Great Beast. Surely if its leader is killed, the greenskins' empire will fall apart in an agony of infightng and confusion. Koorland assembles a mighty army, but when they arrive on the orks' home world, the forces for the Imperium discover they have disastrously underestimated the might and integrity of their enemy.[2]
