Angron's Monolith is a Chaos monument, located in the Equatorial Jungles of the planet Armageddon.[1g]

The monument was erected to honour Angron, Daemon Primarch of the World Eaters. Built during the First War for Armageddon, the monolith is twelve feet tall and composed of blocks of roughly-hewn stone and abandoned weapons that have been fused together by the raw essence of the Warp.[1g] The monolith's very presence is enough to corrupt the jungle around it and interfere with local spatial geometry, meaning that the monolith is both difficult to locate in the first place and to escape from.[1a][1d][1f]

The Relictors Space Marine Chapter deployed to the equatorial jungles in the Third War for Armageddon, ostensibly to eliminate the Feral Orks that infested the jungles following the Second War for Armageddon before they could reinforce the Orks elsewhere on the planet.[1b] In actuality, the Relictors were scouring the jungle in search of the monolith, despite pleas for their assistance in other theatres of the war, in order to locate a shard from an axe, wielded by Angron in the First War, that was embedded in the stones.[1c][1g]

Eventually the Relictors located the monument, and the entire Fourth Company mobilised to secure it, led by Chapter Master Artekus Bardane, Chief Librarian Decario and Inquisitor Halstron.[1e] When Decario attempted to pull the axe's shard from the monolith, however, it triggered a psychic scream that resulted in a horde of Feral Orks being called towards their position.[1g][1h] In the course of the fight, Nico Tarryn, a battle-brother of the fourth, pulled the shard from its prison to defend himself against the greenskins.[1h] Descending into a berserk rage, he eventually came to his senses after butchering his way through ork and marine alike for several hours and handed the shard over to Decario for safekeeping within the Relictors vault.[1i] Following their retrieval of the shard, the Relictors departed from Armageddon in their entirety.[1j]
