The Wrathbringer is a Deathwatch Strike Cruiser, currently serving in the Jericho Reach. In 809.M41 the Wrathbringer, delivered four veteran Kill-teams to the Achilus Crusade's Fortress World of Hethgard. Hethgard was being attacked by unknown xenos war engines, that were rampaging across the planet's surface despite the Crusade's best effort to destroy them. The Kill Teams engaged the war machines and caused enough casualties to the xenos, that they withdrew back to their ship. As the xenos' ship retreated, it came under fire from the Wrathbringer and Hethgard’s defence fleet and was destroyed before it could enter the Warp.
