“Rust conquers all.”– Kroeger
Late in the Horus Heresy, the Iron Warriors found themselves overextended, under-supplied and engaged in a myriad of battles that greatly tested their numbers. This bitter sacrifice was key for the traitor’s advance, allowing their brother Legions to make their way to Terra while Perturabo’s sons kept the loyalists at bay.
Since their fall to the service of the Ruinous Powers, the Iron Warriors dutifully followed the Warmaster in his effort to reshape the Galaxy. Now freed from the imperial constraints, Perturabo gave full reign to his most destructive desires laying waste to world after world, but nothing hurt the Imperium as much as what he and his Iron Warriors did during the Siege of Terra.
Recently promoted into the Trident, the small cadre of Perturabo’s most trusted advisors, Warsmith Kroeger was in charge of many of the Iron Warriors’ actions during the Siege. The Primarch hoped that Kroeger’s bluntness would subvert Dorn’s expectations of a more sophisticated plan of assault, giving the traitor the upper hand to bring down Terra’s defences.
The Brawling Warsmith
Kroeger was a mere trooper at the start of the Horus Heresy but earned his promotion after his flawless performance during the Siege of Hydra Cordatus. He opted for the most brutal and simple approach to war, which clashed with the Trident’s meticulous sieges but often gained the favour of his Primarch, who appreciated the advantages of such tactics.
This was the case during the Battle for the Lion’s Gate, where Kroeger led a frontal assault of Iron Warriors and World Eaters against the defences of the Lion Gate Spaceport. Follow him in his mission to bring down the walls of Terra and finally settle the score against Dorn and his Imperial Fists.
