I have at my command an entire battle group of the Imperial Guard. Fifty regiments, including specialized drop troops, stealthers, mechanized formations, armored companies, combat engineers and mobile artillery. Over half a million fighting men and thirty thousand tanks and artillery pieces are mine to command. Emperor show mercy to the fool that stands against me, for I shall not.

Year 936 of the Tenth Millennium of His Rule
The hive world of Derondii withholds its annual tithes and the Death Korps of Krieg are deployed to act as the honor guard of Departmento Munitorium investigation team. After the Imperial officials are hanged, the Death Korps deploy in the towering mountains that overlook the main hive. Several artillery and siege companies begin to bombard the hive spires and the inhabitants are gunned down mercilessly as they try to break out from the besieged city.
After ten years of relentless shelling, the hive is reduced to rubble and dust, two years after all signs of life from the hive ceased and five years after the hive issued its unconditional surrender.
