Selucus sector- Galactic Southeast. Alpha Legion forces under the command of Lord Magwar of the 7th Grand Company (Hydra company) starts a revolt on 12 planets including the penal world of Stygia where a new Emperor is proclaimed for the Stygian Empire. The Stygian Empire rapidly invades a further 12 worlds alongside their Alpha Legion masters. At this time the Selucus sector fleet in decimated by a cunning Alpha Legion Ambush and a forge world is overrun by the Dark mechanicus who declare for the new Stygian Empire. The Stygian empire expands to include 42 worlds firmly held by the Empire. The Stygian Wars rage across a hundred moons, asteroids and planets on the outskirts of the Empire as it seeks to expand while the Imperium seeks to stop and then wipe out the pocket chaos empire.
