Luther Macintyre IX (also known as Luther McIntyre IX[2a]) is a desert death world in Segmentum Tempestus, notable for being the homeworld of the burrowing, desert-dwelling Ambull species.[1a][2a]


Luther Macintyre IX is an Imperial Death World; the entire planet covered in vast deserts. The sandstorms that plague this world are capable of flaying a man's skin from his bones.[4]

Luther Macintyre IX is also thought to be a possible Tomb World, as an Ambull colony was found on the Ice world Simia Orichalcae, having come through a Necron warp portal to that planet when the Necron portal was inadvertently activated by an Ork vessel exiting the warp over it. However, dozens of other planets have Ambull colonies, so it is equally likely that another planet with Ambulls was the origin of the creatures found on Simia Orichalcae.[1a][1b]

The world is also known to have contained Mica-dragons, the teeth of which were used to create the mighty chainaxes Gorechild and Gorefather, wielded by the World Eaters' primarch, Angron, and subsequently by his equerry, Kharn the Betrayer.[3]
