War Zone Nachmund: Rift War
Released 2022
Preceded by War Zone Nachmund: Vigilus Alone


Abaddon the Despoiler brought a new level of horror to Vigilus – and may have even slain Marneus Calgar into the bargain – but like any good manager, he prefers not to get bogged down in details. Now, in Rift War, he’s sending Haarken Worldclaimer to seize the Nachmund Gauntlet, cutting off the Imperium Nihilus – and Vigilus itself – from the Emperor’s guiding light. Should he succeed, it’d be a massive blow to the gruelling work of the Indomitus Crusade.

Fortunately for the Imperial forces, the Castellans of the Rift are a Chapter specifically founded to guard the fleets passing through the Nachmund Gauntlet. These stalwart guardians have called other Space Marines to their aid, forming a group known as the Wardens of the Gauntlet – they’re the first line of defence in this new phase of the war, holding the line while reinforcements arrive.

Opportunistic factions like the Drukhari are always ready to take advantage, attacking both sides for their own gain. The Rift is also home to a besieged Chaos Knight world that Haarken aims to liberate to bolster his forces – basically, it’s a big mess all around. The very nature of the Nachmund Gauntlet, surrounded by violent warp storms, makes it all the more confusing.
