The Forgeborn are a warband of Chaos Space Marines of the Black Legion led by the Warpsmith D'vok the Unmaker. They became engaged in a conflict with the Craftworld Aeldari of Craftworld Saim-Hann when they sought to conquer the Exodite Maiden World of Daethe in the Nachmund Gauntlet.
The ambitious Warpsmith D'vok once flew the banner of the Iron Warriors, but his scheming kicked off a civil war that tore his former warband of Heretic Astartes apart. Abandoning their former comrades, D'vok and his most elite followers stole away with several packs of Daemon Engines to join Abaddon's Black Legion.
Guided to the Exodite planet of Daethe near the Nachmund Gauntlet in the Nachmund Sector by an ancient star chart not long after Abaddon and the Black Legion retreated from Vigilus following the War of Beasts, the Warpsmith and his Forgeborn constructed a ring of Noctilith Crowns to harness the World Spirit energy of this Aeldari Maiden World. Now, he plans to weaponise the souls of slaughtered Exodites to supercharge his vile machines and curry favour with the Warmaster of Chaos.
However, the Asuryani of Craftworld Saim-Hann heard the desperate plea for aid of the Exodites of Daethe. They despatched a military force commanded by the Autarch Ghaelyn. Ghaelyn led her forces to the Maiden World determined to stop the Forgeborn from desecrating yet another of her species' few remaining sanctuaries.
