Verghast is a Hive World located in the Sabbat Worlds.[1a]


Roughly ninety years before the Siege of Vervunhive, two of the major hive cities of Verghast, Vervunhive and Ferrozoica, fought against each other in a conflict known as the Trade War. Vervunhive emerged victorious in the war, earning much glory.[1b]

Sabbat Worlds Crusade

Main article: Siege of Vervunhive

After the Imperial victory at Balhaut, the Chaos warlord Asphodel escaped the Imperial forces and eventually arrived on Verghast, where he corrupted the hive city of Ferrozoica and attacked the neighbouring hives of Vannick and Vervunhive.[1d] Vannick was destroyed by atomic weapons, while Vervunhive was subjected to a protracted siege.[1c] A relief force from the Imperial Guard joined Vervunhive's defenders and managed to barely repel the Chaos attack, though the city itself was destroyed.[1g] Asphodel was killed in a commando raid led by Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt.[1f]

After the war, Vervunhive was denied Imperial relief, and its population dispersed into other hive cities, some of which were newly founded.[1g] In the later years of the Crusade, however, a modest Imperial contribution was allowing Vervunhive to gradually reconstruct.[2]
