Sector: Donian Sector
World Classification:

Ork incursions in the sector reached a critical point. The Black Templars declared a crusade and spent the subsequent 17 years battling back the Xeno plague but only after the loss of Marshal Austein in the early years of the campaign. Marshal Wernher succeeded Austein after the original Marshal was killed fighting on Nickel V, circa 988.M41.

Source: p65 Codex: Black Templars 4th Edition, p50 Index Astartes Vol II

Marshal Wernher immediately went on to be the Marshal of the Thrangdon Crusade.

The Crusade was later joined by the strike cruiser Apocalypton and at least 6 more rapid strike vessels. The number of Space Marines on board these vessels is unknown. (p50 Index Astartes Vol II)

Fighting Company Gotchalcus' Castellan is originally listed as "Lazarus Gotchalcus." Given the other fighting companies this appears to be an obvious error, but the entry has nevertheless been marked in orange.
