The Hive World of Derondis withheld its annual tithes and regiments of Krieg’s Death Korps were deployed to act as the honour guard of the Departmento Munitorum investigation team. After the Imperium officials were hanged by the rebellious populace, the Krieg troops redeployed into the towering mountains that overlooked the primary hive city. Several artillery and siege companies began to bombard the city spires and the inhabitants were mercilessly gunned down as they tried to break out from the besieged city. After ten standard years of relentless shelling, the hive was reduced to naught but rubble and dust, two years after all signs of life from the hive had already ceased and five years after the hive had plaintively issued its unconditional surrender.
