Gehöft is a former Imperial Agri World, that was destroyed by Exterminatus after an attack by the Blighted Claw Warband.[1]


The Warband was dedicated to Nurgle and Gehöft was the latest Imperial world, the Blighted Claw had spread a virulent plague upon. The diseases not only destroyed the Gehöft's crops and livestock, but also killed a large number of its population as well. To the horror of the world's defenders, the plague did not simply kill its victims, but turned them into Plague Zombies which turned their eternal hunger upon the Imperials. With the Blighted Claw overpowering Gehöft's defenders and the dead consuming the living, the world was nearly overrun within months of the Blighted Claw's invasion. Despite this bleak outlook, the Astra Militarum's Brindelweld Seventeenth Regiment, as well as the Dark Angels Chapter's Ravenwing came to aid the world against the servants of Nurgle. The White Scars' Master of the Hunt, Kor'sarro Khan, also led his Brotherhood to defend Gehöft, but he knew it was doomed before even setting foot upon it. Instead the Khan came to conclude a Great Hunt against the Blighted Claw's leader, the Plague Lord Paramyx, and put an end to the Warband's infection of numerous worlds of the Imperium.[1]

Leading a squadron of attack bikes Kor'sarro pursued Paramyx, as the Imperium and the forces of Nurgle clashed around them, hoping to catch his prey before he left the battle. They were aided in this task by several Ravenwing squadrons led by the Dark Angels Master Sammael and had nearly reached the Plague Lord, when the Khan's squadron was ambushed by a large number of Blight Drones. With their prey getting away, Kor'sarro looked for aid from Sammael's forces, who had been fighting nearby, but he discovered the Ravenwing had abandoned the beleaguered White Scars[1], to pursue their own mysterious goal on the world[2]. With no aid in sight, the White Scars fought on but soon only Kor'sarro was left alive; with the other White Scars in his squadron laying dead and broken around him. With his squadron gone, the Khan was forced to retreat, which allowed Paramyx to escape and soon afterwards the Imperum's forces were routed. The order to evacuate Gehöft was soon given and an Exterminatus was later launched on the doomed world.[1]


Gehöft is a German word for farmstead.
