On the world of Balhaut, Warmaster Slaydo leads the Imperial forces against the stronghold of Archon Nadzybar, the Archenemy's supreme commander. With his Silver Kindred bodyguard at his side, Slaydo challenges the mighty Chaos champion. The result of this combat will decide the fate of the Sabbat Worlds.
