The Battle of Keylek

Main article: Battle of Keylek

921.M30 (approx.):
Around 123 years into the Great Crusade, the Luna Wolves discovered the world of Keylek, and the species that called it home, the keylekid. A reptillian race, the average keylekid was large and strong (in comparison to an Astartes), requiring three or four rounds from a bolt weapon to permanently put down.[1]

A prolonged struggle was avoided, however, when the keylekid warriors - following their own cultural paradigm - assembled in exposed, marked-out battlegrounds and awaited close-quarters combat. The Luna Wolves (at the suggestion of Maloghurst) responded by engaging them from afar, safely massacring the xenos species.[1]
