Mekslag-Ikks is an Ork World in Segmentum Tempestus formerly belonging to the Imperium.[1c]


Originally known as Kastorel-Novem, it was first colonized in M38.[1a]

In 064952.M41 the world was assaulted by the Ork Mek-Boss Buzzgob during Waaagh! Garaghak. Despite a strong resistance from the planet's garrison, including the 49th Terrax Guard, it was evacuated and fell in 723952.M41. Buzzgob turned the captured Kastorel-Novem (renamed Mekslag-Ikks by Orks) into his personal manufacturing base.[1c]

In an attempt to slow the Waaagh! down by crippling Ork facilities on Mekslag-Ikks and killing Mek-Boss Buzzgob, the Imperium launched a surgical strike led by Raven Guard Space Marines and Elysian Drop Troops Imperial Guard in 541992.M41. The mission resulted in failure, with the Imperial forces all but eliminated.[1c]

In 023996.M41 Buzzgob used Mekslag-Ikks as a foothold to capture the Imperial Shrine World of Magdelene IX. As of 995999.M41, the Orks of Waaagh! Garaghak are mustering on Mekslag-Ikks to continue their war against the Imperium.[1c]
