|Death Guard Legion|
Of the forces on planet One-Five-Four Four, the Death Guard, led by Primarch Mortarion, was almost exclusively Legionary. Whether this is a consequence of the XIV Legion's disdain for weakness and human frailty is a matter of conjecture only. What is a matter of record is the utter sundering of the arctic plateau of the planet (referred to locally as 'Skaane') and the systematic demolition of any and all installations and settlements in that region. Mineral harvesters sent in the aftermath of the invasion would later report that this area contributed less than 0.5% of the total geological yield of the entire planet as a direct result of the Death Guard's punitive actions.
