The Battle of Castobel
“From the first wound you deal to the last wound you receive, all blood spilt belongs to Elak Sarda!”
–Captain Val Vendercas, of the Mataras 9th Lacerators
Of all the forces standing in opposition to the Acheros Salient, none are more belligerent or numerous than the degenerate armies of the Stigmartus. Composed of renegades, cultists, rogue psykers, mutants, and madmen, the Stigmartus represent the greatest single military threat to the success of the Salient. Despite their disparate makeup, the forces of the Stigmartus display a level of military organisation and tactical acumen rarely seen among the servants of Chaos.
