Nearly sixty years ago, the Great Beast Ghazghkull Thraka led the largest ork Waaagh! for millennia to the world of Armageddon. He was defeated and cast back into the void... But now he returns, and he means to drown the defenders of the hive world beneath a sea of orks. The Imperial defence is led by the might of the Space Marines – Black Templars, White Scars, Flesh Tearers and others still. Behind them the massed ranks of the Astra Militarum stand firm against the greenskin tide, and all are determined that Ghazghkull Thraka will once again be defied.
