Battle Honours of the Luna Wolves Legion:
The following is a list of the battles that the Luna Wolves took part in,with other pertinent details where possible. I have placed them in chronological order.
Important Note: The events of Horus Rising take place in the 203rd Year of the Great Crusade. At this time Horus had only been Warmaster for about a year.
Within the first 30 years of the start of the Great Crusade:
REILLIS: Fought against Human Settlers who refused to acknowledge the Emperor.
|QUOTE (Index Astartes)|
| At the fortified city of Reillis, a Human settlement unwilling to accept the Emperor's beneficent will, the defending army used secret tunnels to infiltrate behind the besieging Imperial army and hundreds of shock troops swamped the command encampment. Unprepared and unarmoured, the Emperor and Horus fought back to back until a plasma blast stunned Horus and sent him staggering to the floor. The Emperor stood over the Primarch and refused to give ground until reinforcements arrived to drive their attackers back. |
GORRO: Fought against the Orks-Horus cut off the arm of an Ork Warlord who was strangling the Emperor:
|QUOTE (Index Astartes)|
|On the Ork-infested planet of Gorro, Horus repaid the debt by hacking the arm from a huge, frenzied Greenskin warlord as it struggled to choke the Emperor's life out of him.|80 years before Horus Rising:KEYLEK:
