The Battle of Tryjon II took place in 899.M34. It was an attempt by Chaos forces to destroy the Blood Tigers Chapter.[1]


The battle began when a Chaos warband fleet belonging to the Tormented of the Black Legion erupted out of the Warp in a rapid deployment. Twenty Defilers were among the spearhead on the ground, including Me’kallar the Insane. The Daemon Engine burned great swathes through the forest so that the Tormented could bring their war to the foot of the fortress monastery’s outer walls. While the Blood Tigers were forced to focus their efforts on the horror below, Heldrakes tormented the structure further up the fortress spire.[1]

Gunfire raged through the skies while great gouts of blood and flame soaked the humid jungle down below. Only one foe from the Warp managed to breach the armored walls, and that was Me’kallar the Insane. The Defiler wreaked havoc inside the fortress monastery, crushing whole squads of Blood Tigers. Dreadnoughts finally reduced the Daemon Engine to smoldering wreckage, but not before it had caused significant damage. Only after Me’kallar’s fall did the forces of the Tormented finally retreat into the Immaterium, and the Blood Tigers were left to count their dead.[1]
