The Lathes in the galactic south west

All three planets are Forge Worlds located close together in the Golgenna Reach subsector. Their highly irregular orbits result in hyper-gravitic events, allowing the manufacture of extremely high-density ammunition and blades claimed to be unbreakable. The entire system is held in fealty to the Mechanicum of Mars and non-believers require extensive permits from high authorities to visit.[1] The population of The Lathes is estimated to be approximately five billion.[2] The majority of these natives, the menial laborers serving the Adeptus Mechanicus are large men and women, meaty and powerful, with large bones[1], often described as more Ogryn than man[2]
