For twenty years the ork warboss Stumpgutz has been terrorising the Alixind System. At last an Imperial taskforce has managed to corner him in his lair, a town-sized fortress. As the Astra Militarum close in, the desperate greenskins fight ever harder, and despite the Imperium's best attempts, casualties mount to unsustainable levels.
