History

During the Scouring of Hexdragon XXIV in 345.M38 the newly arrived Iron Shield Chapter suffered severe casualties amongst their Assault Marines during an assault on the Despot of Hexdragon's battle fortress. With all members of the Chapter’s Battle Companies fully engaged, Commander Shakirax ordered the troops of the 10th Scout Company to be issued with jump packs, so that they could fulfill the role of jump infantry instead. Suffering casualties in excess of 90%, the Scouts nonetheless overwhelmed the defenders of the Obsidian Tower, and the fortress fell.[1]
