The forge world of Ryza is second only to Mars in its splendour. Famed for its innovative plasma technologies, it is a prime target for the Dark Mechanicum and their ally, the Warmaster Horus. As the forces of the traitor Fabricator-General, Kelbor-Hal, attack, Ryza's defenders prepare to sell their lives dearly for their world.

Alongside narrative missions, the book includes rules for four new Titan Legions, four new maniples and six new Knightly Houses. The most exciting feature in the new book is the rules that allow you to create your own Titan Legion! Choose specific wargear, stratagems, and traits, then unleash your Legio in battle. There are also allegiance rules, meaning you can declare any Legio (including your own) to be Loyalist, Traitor or even Blackshield."
