I am up to slaves to darkness in the Horus heresy series and realized that I haven’t read anything about the iron warriors or nightlords destruction of there own planets. Other than, I believe, a few passing comments or references to them as having happened on the past.

I have missed out a few books in the series so it is possible I have missed them.

Are there any short stories, novellas or chapters of a longer novel that describe the events leading up to, and the destruction itself of these 2 planets. In both cases it was a major contributor to the turning of each legion by Horus. Or do they happen “off page” and are just referenced to?

The destruction of Nostramo is shown in the short story The Dark King.


Whilst I don't think Olympia was ever fully destroyed, but him attacking and purging Olympia is in Perturabo's primarch novel Perturabo: The Hammer of Olympia
