The Regiment had earned the name Swarm Crushers, due to their storied exploits during the Second Tyrannic War and their moral was high as they prepared to face the splinter fleet. However when Ouroboris finally invades, the Swarm Crushers are dismayed to see their well-honed Tyranid killing tactics, have no effect on the splinter fleet's primitive swarms. Though they are stunned by the ineffectiveness of their defense, the Cadian 14th nevertheless sold their lives dearly before they are killed and Shukra is soon consumed by the Tyranids.[1]
