So what is the deal, one account of M'Kar's story has Kaldor Draigo of the Grey Knights felling him, the other has Calgar of the Ultramarines killing him.

>The Command Squad of the Ultramarines 2nd Company has been known to reform alongside Chaplain Trajan. During the Hagus Wars, Chaplain Trajan’s squad spearheaded several counter attacks against a potent Tau expansionary force to recover the Sword of Zalthus. The legendary weapon, once wielded by Company Champion Zalthus a century before, had been captured during a devastating sequence of planetary raids. After Captain Sicarius had sustained great injuries from a XV104 Riptide, the Lions of Macragge rallied around Trajan and delivered a blistering strike against the Tau Ethereal leading the force. The Sword of Zalthus stands to this day, engulfed by clouds of incense, safe in the Ultramarines’ Reclusiam.

I think Draigo is great. A paladin of righteous fury and an unassailable soul of purity stuck in the heart of darkness and corruption itself. Caught in a stalemate with the dark powers there. As they are powerless to defeat and corrupt him, he is powerless to do them any real harm.

The Imperium isn't really an empire so much as a loose confederation. It's just that, like the AdMech, the Space Wolves are more blatant about it.

???.M31 - Horus Heresy
- Maloq Kartho of the World Bearer's traitor Legion sacrifices his forces in a bid to fell the Ultramarines lead by Remus Ventanus only to be felled by the blade of Erebus. Though defeated, his acts would grant him favor in the eyes of Choas rebirthed as the Daemon Prince M'Kar.

799.M41 - (Flesh Tearers, Celestial Lions & Grey Knights)
- M'Kar seeks to establish a stronghold in the Vidar Sector on the planet Acralem. Flesh Tearers, Celestial Lions and Grey Knights descend on the planet quashing his ambitions where Kaldor Draigo delivers the finishing blow to M'Kar earning him M'Kar's curse and eternal wrath.

878.M41 (Ultramarines)
- M'Kar is reborn a second time, this time targeting the Ultramarines attacking Ultimar with a fleet of Chaos Pirates only to suffering a humbling defeat at the hands of Captain Cato Sicarius forcing him into retreat.

935.M41 (Ultramarines)
- M'Kar and a Daemonic horde take control of the Ultramarine star fort Indominable. While details remain sketchy, official records state that Marnius Calgar and the 1st Terminator Company tore M'Kar limb from limb.

965.M41 (Blood Angels)
- M'Kar mysteriously reappears imprisoning the chief Librarian of the Blood Angels Mephiston within the crystal caverns of Solon V seeking to tempt the Psyker towards the path of Chaos only to have his offer rejected by having the life throttled out of him.

>> No.28947747

>>28947704

997.M41 (Sky Sentinels & Grey Knights)
M'Kar is thrice reborn turning the Agri-World of Sodheim V into his own personal Pandemonia attracking the attention of a Tyranid Hive fleet and the Sky Sentinels Chapter who seek to use Exterminatus to reclaim the planet. The Grey Knights manage to persuade them a stay of execution that they may reclaim the cursed Book of Pandergaras. However caught between Chaos and Tyranid forces the Grey Knights order the Exterminatus annihilating the Daemons and Devourers leaving only the Grey Knights. M'Kar presumably escapes.

999.M41 - (Grey Knights)
On the 200th Annivarsary of his defeat, M'Kar seeks to reclaim Acralem once more in hopes of luring out his old foe Kaldor Draigo who ventures to Acralem alone. Though Draigo's Nemesis-Force blade is broken in the final battle he ultimately prevails plunging the broken blade up into M'Kar's heart banishing the Daemon and his legions back into the Warp, but not before Draigo himself was cast into the Warp where the long standing curse may take affect. Had Draigo actually foiled the Daemon Prince's plans or was it all an elaborately orchestrated scheme to enact his vengeful curse on Draigo?

>> No.28947896

>>28947747

999.M41 - (Ultramarines)
- It's revealed that M'Kar's persistent presence in the Material realm and numerous rebirths were due to his incomplete defeat at the hands of Clagar, only imprisoned in the Warp Core of the Star Fortress Indominable. Having enacted his vengeance against his old foe Draigo, M'kar seeks to settle the score with the Ultramarines and is thrice reborn through the body of an Utlramarine Dreadnought leading the Star Fortress towards Ultimar to play his own part in the 13th Black Crusade. In the ensuing invasion of the system the embattled Ultramarine forces nearly sucumb ot M'Kars might, but with the Daemon's true name uttered by brother Uriel (rending the Daemon Prince helpless) and the Shard of Erebus (the blade which had originally slain M'Kar during the Horus Heresy) driven into M'Kar's throat by Calgar himself the day is won, the foul Daemon erased from existence.

I don't believe it's ever specified.

Grey Knights also sometimes work with Eldar since they share a common enemy with Chaos. It tends to puzzle the Eldar greatly who are unaccustomed to encounters with Space Marines that don't result in mutual bloodshed.

Corbulo's page in the Blood Angels codex also has this, though it doesn't give a date:

>Similarly, without Corbulo’s guidance, the Blood Angel’s Chapter Fleet would never have known the hour and location at which M’kar the Reborn’s world-breaking Daemon-cruiser would enter the Baal system, and could thus never have ambushed and obliterated the vessel before Baal itself was laid waste.
