Waaagh! Starsmasha took place in 400.M35.[1]

Overview

Tectonic upheavals on the backwater world of Ironcel V trigger a massive Ork Waaagh!. Dispossessed greenskins flood into space in their billions, led by a bellowing beast known as Warboss Starsmasha. The Waaagh! overruns the maiden world of Ledrith, smashes aside the renegade warfleet of Lord Borvashik, and descends upon the Redhaven System. However, here it is stopped dead by a combined force of Blood Angels, Imperial Guard, and Knights of House Griffith. The defence is coordinated by the Blood Angels Chapter Master, Leonid Castivarus, and is masterful in its conception and execution. The war rages for many months and several Imperial worlds are overrun, yet finally the Waaagh! spends its fury against the so-called Shield of Sanguinius and is utterly destroyed
