Siege of Inwit
The Siege of Inwit (009.M31 - 013.M31) was a Horus Heresy campaign, that Warmaster Horus' Traitor forces waged against the Imperium's Inwit Cluster.
It was undertaken by dozens of Traitor fleets, who each sought to claim the prize of the Imperial Fists Legion's Homeworld, Inwit. The Siege then steadily increased in intensity for four years, before Warmaster Horus' direct assault on Terra drew the Traitors away from the Inwit Cluster. In their wake, however, they left behind a string of burning and wasted worlds.
After several years of fighting, the Traitors eventually fought their way to Inwit itself as the remaining loyalists sought to dug-in and make a final stand. After the invaders then laid siege to the world, the Imperial Fists lost dozens of warships in desperate attempts to break the blockade and seek reinforcements. While the Imperial Fists Frigate Astral Majesty was able to reach the Dark Angels forces, they soon found themselves requisitioned for Lion El'Jonson's Crusade of vengeance instead of relieving Inwit.
