    I'm not sure how far the hive fleet went. But the entire 1st company of the Ultramarines was destroyed. The fluff is in the 2nd edition Ultramarines codex I believe...I'll look it up later tonight and give you more info...WAAAGH!

    Can't remember if it was Hive Fleet Leviathan or Behemoth but anyway it invaded Macragge, after intense fighting the UM killed em all, but they lost Captain Invictus and the entire first company in the process.

    Cheers dude.

    I know that the 1st Company was wiped out, but I just want to know how far into the Ultima Segmentum the Tyranids got, so I can figure out where to place my planet. As I don&#39;t think I&#39;ve be able to place it where I want to place it.

    Macragge is on the edges isn&#39;t it?

    Luckey you Toastee I just had this white dawrk out. They attacked Macragge and then they were pushed back and they were destroyed. The realem of Ultramar is on the edge of the Ultima Segmentum and Macragge is on the very edge of the Ultramar realm. Its was hive fleet Behemoth. Anything else about the batlle you want I have the entire story sitting beside my computer.

    What exactly is this for?

    Sunflash: Cheers dude. So they didn&#39;t get any further than Macragge and the Ultramar system, or did they attack and surrounding systems.

    I guess another question could be COULD they have attacked a few of the surrounding systems?

    Its for my fluff, and I guess if I want to go down this line, its rules out having my planet up near Valhalla =/

    Cheers for anymore help you can give.

    Nope they only attacked Macragge. They didn&#39;t even land on another planet. Which is questionable why did they attack Macragge? Its right on the side of the realm but there are planets on both sides of it? They really could have a attacked 3 or 4 palnets from the direction they came.

    Do you want a run down of the battle or any specific facts?

    Just think the home of a space marine chapter had troble holding of a scouting force of tyranids. *shiver*

    Damn, that means my fluff might be wrong then =;_;=

    I&#39;ll have to get my paws on the 2nd Ed Codex.

    Basically, a PDF force hold the system and planet against Tyranids, but slowly begin to fail...then a Chapter that was made for the invasion is stuck on a battle barge and enters the system to help.
    The PDF and the Chapter fight off the Tyranids....but this is all supposed to be in the 1st Tyranid invasion....any ideas on how I could maybe change a few things so that this could work?

    Ta
