Heart of Cronus
The Heart of Cronus is a battle-barge in service with the Scythes of the Emperor Chapter. The chapter's last flagship, it served as the chapter's base of operations for a time after the destruction of Sotha by the Tyranids of Hive Fleet Kraken, although it has been supplanted in that role by the Space Station Aegida.
In order to help rebuild after the destruction of Sotha, the hangar bay was rebuilt into a training ground for newly recruited neophytes, with traps, creatures and combat servitors programmed with Tyranid attack patterns.
- Nyall Devanti - Shipmaster. Severely injured in the evacuation to the Miral System following the Fall of Sotha.
