Radnar lay in the path of Hive Fleet Kraken, during its rampage across the Ultima Segmentum.[1a] The planet had been plagued by Genestealer cult uprisings for several years before the arrival of the Hive Fleet.[2] In the Cleansing of Radnar from the Genestealers menace took part Astra Militarum forces, including Astra Militarum forces, of which are known: Krieg 1st Heavy Tank Company (Baneblades)[3], tanks of the Krieg 11th Heavy Tank Company (including at least one Macharius Vanquisher)[4b] and Tekarn 83rd Mechanised Infantry Regiment[4a]. Before Kraken's invasion, the Scythes of the Emperor arrived to aid the Hive World. Like they had done on so many other worlds before, since the loss of their Homeworld, the Scythes built up the defenses of Radnar; and trained its population in warfare to aid in its defense.[1a] It was not enough however and despite Radnar's defenders best efforts, the Tyranids soon engulfed the Hive World. Before Radnar was consumed, the Scythes fled the doomed world;[1b] taking with them many of its young that showed promise as Aspirants, in order to help rebuild the numbers of their devastated Chapter.[1a]
