Unknown to the Imperium, Damnos was a Necron Tomb World. Its Necron populace awakened in 973.M41, and had the entire planet conquered by 974.M41. By the time reinforcements arrived in the form of the Ultramarines 2nd Company, all they could do was launch fast raids in attempts to gather what remained of the populace and retreat into deep space. Damnos became a Necron World.
In 999.M41 Cato Sicarius and the 2nd Company launched a new campaign to capture Damnos. Killing the Necron Lord known as The Undying, Damnos was reclaimed for the Imperium. In early M42 the Necrons, led by the Szarekhan Dynasty, again struck at Damnos and faced a large Space Marine resistance.
