Do any of you know when the last ork rok/hulk entered the sol system (that's our system) if one did at all and if so what was the imperial date? I'm running a campaign and I'm going with this sort of storyline. I'd just like to get the facts right.
Any other facts relating to this issue would be great too.
You'd be looking at pre-Imperial times for that kinda thing... perhaps at the time when the Emperor and the first space marines where uniting earth (Terra)... however in the ork codex on bit of fluff goes "written by an inquisitor" talks about the threat of ork spores being transported right across the imperium by Imperial vessels and he does mention that this could even threaten Earth or Mars... that a possibility but the Adeptus Custodus would wipe out the orks in no time at all... if things got really bad there's the Grey Knights on titan orbiting Jupiter... I know their demon hunters but they would still probably get called to defend terra its self from such an unexpected attack...
Your best bet though is the time between the emperor conquering earth and the start of the great crusade or maybe a small attack in the after math of the Heresy when most of the Legions are pursing the traitors back to the eye of terror?... a rag tag of marines and imperial guards men left by Dorn under a trusted lieutenant would be likely so Imperial Fist-Imperial Guard vs. Orks...any other time and earth would be so well defended that (Unless spores get to earth) an ork fleet would be destroyed by the planetary defences before any orks could reach the surface...
