When his "supply lines" were finally secured, and his army emerged from the equatorial jungles that separated Armageddon Prime from Armageddon Secundus, Angron found the Imperial defenders ready and waiting -- and reinforced by the Space Wolves. For some World Eaters Space Marines, the result was an uncontrollable thirst for slaughter even away from the battlefield. Because of these neurological changes, everything caused the Primarch pain.
