The Imperial Guard regiment known as the Tanith First-and-Only, officially called the Tanith 1st Regiment but better known as"Gaunt's Ghosts", is a regiment that was raised from the world of Tanith in the Sabbat Worlds Sector. The regiment has been heavily engaged in the combat to retake the Sabbat Worlds from the Forces of Chaos during the Sabbat Worlds Crusade. The regiment's nickname originally came about as a result of the name of their commanding officer, Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt, and the disenfranchised status of the original Tanith soldiers after their homeworld was destroyed. It has proved to be a nickname of some further application, as the Verghastite personnel influx into the regiment also considered themselves "ghosts" due to the destruction of their home city, and the regiment as a whole is noted for its stealth and reconnaissance abilities being almost uncanny in nature.
If the Imperial Guard is the so-called “Hammer of the Emperor,” the infamous regiment known as “Gaunt’s Ghosts” finds more in common with the medical scalpel: small, fragile, but incredibly deadly when employed correctly.
Now a unit from this regiment is on its way back to their home world of Tanith! Why would they return to a place of such destruction? A relic of great importance has been discovered almost intact! Made from Nalwood the item is almost priceless, but to these men it represents all that they have left of their homes! Can the hero's of Tanith regain this artifact or will it fall in to the hands of others?
