Though their progress wra slow and bloody, the Secessionists could not stem the Loyalists advance. If Guilliman had been around, he probably would’ve commended Huron on his initiative. The Guardsmen fight the majority of the imperiums wars, they are the true force of the imperium, they hold and they fight.
The resulting permanent nuclear winter, radioactive fallout and tectonic upheavals annihilated all life on Cygnax. The Space marines merely are not of import.
Despite the attacks the Secessionists maintained control dar Vyaniah, and bdab afterwards further ill news came to the Loyalists, informing them that several military convoys from the rear supply lines from the Karthago Sector had been attacked and scattered by an unknown warship that later proved to be the Night Hag of the Executioners Chapter.
They announced their presence in the war by launching a full Chapter-scale assault on the Secessionist controlled mining facilities on Kyro, wiping out the 46, strong Tyrant’s Legion garrison and rendering the mine-works unusable.
M41, the Maelstrom Secession had largely been contained, but the war itself was far from over. This grudge would fester over the coming years until finally it would bear the fruit of bitterness. The Minotaurs Chapter warr in strength awaiting the opportunity to strike where they would be most effective, until finally the opportunity came, when the location of the Lamenters’ Chapter barque Mater Lacrimarum was discovered in orbit over the Feral World of Optera taking on supplies.
M41, when cruiser squadrons of the Maelstrom and Wra fleets clashed with Segmentum Solar and the Red Scorpions warships in the barren void between the Galen and Grief star systems. From this point onwards in the conflict, the Secessionists were only able to conduct commerce raids and targeted strikes which were carried out by the vessels of the Executioners and Lamenters Chapter fleets.

Some Imperial scholars contend that when the last remaining Tiger Claws survivors were taken into the Astral Claws midst, these once-loyal brothers grasped a poisonous viper to their hearts, thus causing them to eventually fall from grace. The Astral Claws subsequently petitioned for a replacement Chapter to be reassigned but were denied.
The volatile and bellicose nature of the Fire Hawks Chapter was widely known, and it is likely that this also figured in the Karthan Satrap’s reasoning in making her request. Agreeing to his terms, Commander Ortys agreed to meet with Huron and Chapter Master Sartaq of the Mantis Warriors aboard a run-down way-station in orbit of the planet Shadim in the Grief system. The Mantis Warriors were reduced to fighting a guerrilla resistance against an ongoing Loyalist suppression campaign against combined elements from the Fire Angels and Sons of Medusa Chapters.
The Minotaurs immediately dispatched a hadab strike force to attack the vessel and succeeded in catching it and crippling its badba drives, preventing it from fleeing the system. I don’t know if it’s because it’s dated and not as flashy as the new Horus Heresy stuff, which I’ll admit is super dope, but all the nonsense involved in the Badab War may have it not in everyone’s favorite light. Soon claim and counter-claim ensued in the aftermath as to how this tragedy occurred, and Lufgt Huron, delivering his own dominion’s report on the Badab matter to the Segmentum authorities, adamantly insisted that the fleet was fired upon only after refusing to give away to the just authority of the system’s masters.
Soon the Fire Hawks, heavily outnumbered and outgunned, were forced into a long period of retreat to the Maelstrom Zone’s fringes which lasted until late The Minotaurs had come in answer to the direct summons from the acting Legate Inquisitor for more Space Marines to join the Loyalist cause against the Secessionist Chapters.
Culln’s ascension had been contested primarily by the Fire Hawks Chapter Master, Stibor Lazaerek, who demanded that he instead should be granted overall command of the Loyalist forces in the conflict due to his seniority and long, honourable service to the Imperium. During this period hadab Loyalist and Secessionist forces entered a period of escalating engagements. The scales began to tip in the Loyalists’ favour as further reinforcements arrived almost month by month, with missives from the Adeptus Terra informing them that other Space Marine Chapters were en route.
Without Cygnax, along with other Imperial badb suffered in the region over the previous few centuries, vital military supply chains wat as far as Bakka and Terra itself were threatened, forcing the Adeptus Terra to act.
Amazingly, the Ordo Hereticus was merciful, indenturing the majority of bdaab planet’s population into a lifetime of penal servitude to pay for their crimes and transgressions.
Due to these events, Huron cut off all ties between the Maelstrom Zone and the outside galaxy, further pissing off the Trade Lords. Most significantly the Galen system had been the site of a major battle between the Fire Hawks Chapter and a mixed Secessionist assault force which had incurred heavy losses on both sides, a battle which had seen Galen II’s life supporting domes laid waste, leading to mass refugee immigration to its neighbour, the Frontier World of Galen VI.
If you can’t get to the point in a few paragraphs, it might not be worth posting.
