Battle of Icthia

Battle of Icthia
The largest ongoing battle in the Crown War of Secession, it has lasted 749.375 Terran days and encompasses the entirety of the single continent on Icthia.

Knowing that Icthia lay on an important warp route to the region, no expense was spared in fortifying it against any intrusion. Almost a third of the Crown Republic’s fleet was in orbit, the seas teemed with boats to maintain control of the food supply from the ocean, and the continent was checkerboarded with a defensive network of incredible proportions. But it didn’t stop the Imperial Guard. The Imperial Fleet punched through the blockade and managed to bombard enough of a beachhead to facilitate landing in force, and the Guard flooded onto Icthia. When the flow of resources hiccuped due to warp vagaries, so did the forward progress, turning a quick and easy campaign into an incredible slog. Worse, much of the fleet was reassigned to elsewhere in the warzone or to other conflicts entirely. Now they barely have enough ships enough to maintain the flow of men into the grinder. It’s been a full 2 years now. The Icthian continent has been devastated, it’s natural instectoid fauna and fungal flora driven to near extinction under artillery and the boots of the Guard.
