Radnar was a Hive World of the Imperium.[3]


Radnar was plagued by Genestealer cult uprisings for several years before the Second Tyrannic War.[2] The Astra Militarum forces of the Krieg 1st Heavy Tank Company (Baneblades)[3], Krieg 11th Heavy Tank Company (including at least one Macharius Vanquisher)[4b] and the Tekarn 83rd Mechanised Infantry Regiment, are among those that fought against the Genestealers.[4a]

Years later, during the Second Tyrannic War, Radnar was invaded by Hive Fleet Kraken, though the Scythes of the Emperor came to aid the Hive World. Like they had done on so many other worlds before, since the loss of their Homeworld Sotha, the Scythes built up the defenses of Radnar and trained its population in warfare to aid in its defense. This was not enough, however, and despite the defenders' best efforts, the Tyranids soon engulfed the Hive World. The Scythes were able to escape the doomed world and took with them many of its young that showed promise as Aspirants, in order to rebuild their Chapter[1]. After Hive Fleet Kraken was later defeated on Ichar IV, however, the Astra Militarum was deployed to reclaim Radnar. They now fight Kraken's remnants through the ruined Hive World and the Emperor's Shield Regiment has been able to reclaim the Jourmall Hive.[5]


Radnar could be a spelling variant of Radnor, a place name from Wales.
