Typhon Eight (also known simply as Typhon) is an ice moon of the Sabbat Worlds Cluster.[1]


In the course of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade, Imperial forces sought to capture Typhon Eight to establish a beachhead over part of the Sabbat Worlds with which they would combat Chaos armies in the region. This was complicated by the presence of an ork warband, which came to Typhon, drawn by the fighting and ready to fight the Imperials in turn. The Imperial Guard Regiments stationed on Typhon Eight were eventually able to drive them off.[1]


Typhon Eight's surface is primarily water ice over a sea of volatile hydrocarbons. The boiling chemical sea colours the lowest reaches of the ice in a variety of hues, including crimson, purple and green.[1]
