Battle of Shemnoch
The Battle of Shemnoch took place in 900.M41. Led by Kardan Stronos of the Iron Hands, a force of Iron Hands and Brazen Claws attacked a Necron dynasty on the planet Shemnoch. While Stronos lead Clan Garrsak in a headlong assault against the Necrons' leader, Clan Company Raukaan faced a Transcendent C’tan. Set loose by the Necrons in an act of desperation, this burning star-god decimated the Iron Hands ranks. It was finally defeated when Venerable Dreadnought Furnous coordinated the clan company's Dreadnoughts into a single unstoppable wave. Though several of the Chapter’s most celebrated heroes fell, in the end the C’tan’s blazing form was torn apart in a blaze of cosmic energies, leaving the victorious warriors of Clan Raukaan bloodied but unbowed.
