Agents of the Imperium
Ataxis Prime is an arid desert world on the edge of Imperial space. Imperial control on the world is held through its only major city: Ataxia. Otherwise, the planet is home to a large manufactorum in the northern mountains, and an Imperial shrine to the south that is said to have been visited by the Emperor during the Great Crusade. Because of this, Adeptus Mechanicus and Adeptus Ministorum presence on the world is strong. The planet is currently in the midst of an Ork WAAARGH! which has put the world under great threat. The world is currently being fortified by the Telrazzian 13th Rifles Regiment, the Crimson Guard and the 8th Caprician Light Infantry. Recently, the Salamanders 5th Company has made its way to the world to aide in stemming the Green tide.
The planet is a major producer in weaponry and armoured vehicles for the Imperial Guard in the sector. Each facet of production is controlled by the various noble houses, who also maintain their own Planetary Defense Forces.
