The Achernar Invasion was a battle between the Blood Angels Space Marine Chapter and Ork Freebooters.[1]

The 3rd Company of the Blood Angels was withdrawn from operations against secessionists in the Howling Deeps to counter a sudden ride in Ork attacks close to Holy Terra. The Orks preyed upon Imperial shipping for months before the Blood Angels descended on them, wiping them out so effectively that no more Greenskins were seen within a dozen light years of Achernar for millennia to come.[2]
