Skovi is an Imperium Hive World that found itself in the path of a rampaging Ork fleet in the aftermath of the Great Rift's creation.[1]

When Imperium vessels fleeing from the Ork fleet reached Valhalla, they warned that the world lay in the Ork fleet's path. In order to prevent their world from being invaded, numerous Valhallan Ice Warriors regiments descended upon Skovi, which was located near Valhalla and was expected to be the Orks' next target. However, the Valhallans soon discovered that the Hive World had already fought off several of the Ork fleet's ships and its armouries were now left severely depleted. Desperate calls for resupply had been sent, but they were either never received or the Imperial Navy's resupply ships had been lost in the Warp. As the main body of the Ork fleet finally arrived in the Hive World's orbit, the well-equipped Ice Warriors assumed direct command of Skovi's defence and requisitioned what few supplies remained. The Skovians were then given knives, hatchets, spears and rocks before being ordered to march alongside the Valhallan infantry towards the Ork invaders. In the battle that followed, the Valhallans and Skovians suffered horrific losses, but they held their ground against the Orks, as the Valhallan 888th ‘Frostburners’ Artillery Regiment began to shell the Xenos. The battle then continued until nightfall on the fourth day, when all that remained of the invaders was a handful of surviving Orks, which were soon hunted down and killed by the vengeful defenders of Skovi.[1]
