After the Horus Heresy, the Traitor Legions dispersed throughout the Galaxy in search of many things, but vengeance chief among them. Kor Megron, a former Word Bearer, has sought nothing less than the destruction of his own symbols of adoration for and deification of the Emperor of Mankind.

These two factions find themselves clashing on the field of battle at the Eagle Gate in a bloody, yet decisive confrontation.
