Arks of Omen: Abaddon is the first book in the Arks of Omen campaign event series for the 9th Edition of Warhammer 40,000.[1]


Forging an infernal pact with a dread new ally, Abaddon the Despoiler unleashes the mighty Arks of Omen and their rapacious Balefleets upon the Imperium Sanctus and the Imperium Nihilus alike.

Striking at world after world, the Arks ignite fresh conflagrations of war wherever their shadows fall. Humans, aliens, and even Abaddon's heretical rivals fight back against these nightmare war fleets wherever they can - but there is a darker and more insidious purpose to the attacks of the Arks of Omen, and time is not their ally...
