Greyhell Front

Greyhell front
The Greyhell Front was one of the two main war zones where the Imperial forces of the Achilus Crusade were concentrated. The Imperial Guard and Imperial Navy struggled to establish footholds close to Tau-occupied space. This volatile region of the Reach was regarded as a meat grinder by the Imperial troops serving there.
Known Worlds of the Greyhell Front

  • Baraban (Feral World) – Baraban is a Feral World of endless temperate forests and was home to huge Vespid and Kroot armies. The war on Baraban was a conventional one, but the forces of the Imperial Guard were constantly denied victory as they fell apart in terror and disarray as they were assailed by strange ghosts of unknown origins.
  • Bekrin (Shrine World) – Bekrin is a Cardinal world and religious capital of the diocese covering much of what was the Canis Salient. Its clergy was forced to evacuate the planet to escape the approaching Tyranids Hive Fleet, and though they were turned aside before they reached Bekrin, the world was never resettled.
  • Dakinor (Dead World)
  • Ravacene (Death World) – Ravacene was a notorious Death world, that was covered in ash-choked forests from the volcanoes that covered the planet’s single planet-wide continent. It is said that this is how the Greyhell Front derived its name. The Imperial Guard fought a bleak, brutal war of attrition against both the Kroot and the planet alike.
  • Veren (Feral World) – The Feral world of Veren is a world of glassy black mountains and shallow oceans teeming with life. Though Veren was of little strategic value the Tau were determined to prevent the Imperium from conquering this planet. Convinced that something lay on Veren that the Tau wanted to defend, the Imperial Guard were dispatched to fight a brutal campaign against the Tau for control of the contested world.
