Nekkruncha is an Ork Warlord, Bad Moons Klan who invaded the Imperial world of Tarnis, ancestral home of the Knight House Drakkus. A Knight World seemed like the ideal target for an Ork looking for a fight loot. There were the Knights themselves, their household troops and the riches of the world to plunder. Nekkruncha chose Tarnis to start a WAAAGH! of his own. kkruncha was leading a large warband well supplied with Deffkoptas, Deff Dreads, Gorkanauts and Morkanauts and the abominable Squiggoths.
Coincidence had it, that a Chaos Warband of the followers of Khorne attacked that world at the same time to summon an ancient evil, the Bloodthirster Felfurion to the Materium. A detachment of the Dark Angels Space Marine Chapter under the command of Master Tigraine rushed to aid the beleaguered world. They were to late to assist House Drakkus however, as that noble line was all but vanquished in a an attack on their knightly keep, Fort Drakkus. Only one scion remained, taking up the mantle of the Freeblade and dubbing himself Vortigan. The Marines and the knight embarked on a quest to cleanse the world of xenos taint and chaotic filth.
