Prelude: To understand the context of the following action report, this humble scribe has collected and codified the events leading up to the momentous charge of the Knights of House Rydan against elements traitorous XIIth legio (World Eaters).
In the fith year of the momentous and savage battles of what we now call The Scouring, war came to the verdant worlds of the Kordeum system. Defeated though they were at Terra, the nine legions that had followed Horus into treachery were still formidable fighting forces that even in retreat brought much devastation to the Imperium even as Loyalist retribution snapped at their heels. Most legions had already begun to fracture into numerous autonomous warbands of varying sizes ranging from demi-company to chapter scale formations. ADDENDUM: Legio Astartes chapter formations set at ten thousand nominal strength. One mid-sized warband belonging to the most ferocious of the Legiones Astartes, the World Eaters launched a brutal campaign of extermination against the as yet untouched worlds of the Kordeum system which was under the protection of Knight House Rydan. Translating from the warp at maximum burn, the World Eaters flotilla centered on the Styges class grand cruiser Rex Interfectorum brushed passed the system defence monitors and minefields at the systems edge and powered on towards Kordeum Prime. Being a feudal Knighthold with little in the way of industry or high value war resources much has been made of the selection of Kordeum as a target by the XIIth. Most scholars agree that the reasoning behind the attack was nothing less than base bloodlust and an oportunity to vent their pent up wrath. Much has already been written about the bloodthirsty and ill-disciplined nature of the World Eaters in other accounts and it need not be repeated here. Upon reaching orbit the Rex Interfectorum began imediate suppresion of the few defence laser silos on the surface whilst simultaneously launching a wave of kharybdis and dreadclaw drop pods directly onto Kordeum Civitas Primus to secure a beachhead. The paltry garrison of House Rydan armsmen was massacred in short order and the World Eaters scattered throughout the city to reap a red harvest of its citizens. House Rydan had prudently withdrawn all of its knights to its castellum under Mons Cinefax where the protection of both bedrock and void shields would allow them to weather the orbital bombardment without ill effect. The second wave of World Eaters stormbirds and thunderhawks descended bringing in reinforcements and armoured support as the traitorous Astartes began forming up for an assault of Mons Cinefax which was at this point the only bastion of Imperial rule left in the Kordeum system. With the Rex Interfectorum’s guns falling silent to avoid casualties amongst the rapidly advancing World Eaters the Knights of House Rydan finally deigned to show themselves, issuing forth from their Castellum to meet the raving sons of Angron upon the open field of battle.
Here follows the account of the Battle of Mons Cinefax also known as Rydans Vengeance:

Welcome all to another SN Battle Report! Today we have a very special report. We will be featuring the brand new SN Imperial Knight army as they prepare to butt heads with a veteran force here at the Studio; the bloodthirsty Chaos forces of the World Eaters, lead by Kevin. Eagerly, the SN Team prepare the board for the upcoming battle. The Imperial Knights, the great towering hulks of the Imperium are incredibly impressive on the battlefield, able to soak up a lot of incoming firepower, whilst also dishing out a fair amount themselves. Knowing what he was up against, Kevin decided to bring as many guns to the fight as possible. Will it however, be enough to stand toe-to-toe with the Imperial Knights?
