Infiltrating a Chaos-tainted fortress under the cover of darkness, White Scars Sergeant Kergis and his squad seek to avenge a grievous slight to their Chapter’s honour.

The Relic

Twelve Wolves

The Returned

by Graham McNeill

The 4th Company of the Ultramarines returns from Tarsis Ultra after their narrow victory over the Tyranids. Shortly after their arrival, Captain Uriel Ventris and Sergeant Pasanius Lysane are both placed under arrest and charged with breaking from the Codex Astartes, a crime punishable by execution.

The Last Detail

by Paul Kearney

A man and his son are hiding in a bunker underneath their home, sheltering from a conflict above. They leave to explore their surroundings, finding devastation and eventually a Space Marine, wounded, with destroyed power armour and trapped underneath a rock fall. This Astartes explains that his chapter was on their world fighting a Chaos Warband called the Punishers, who had hoped to take this world in order to forge a bridgehead and go on to conquer the rest of the sector.

At Gaius Point

Brother Zavien of the Flesh Tearers embarks on a hunt in the jungles of Armageddon. His quarry is the deadliest of all foes: his own battle brother, Jarl.
