The Badab War is the largest Space Marine civil war since the Horus Heresy. The Astral Claws were the primary chapter to patrol and maintain order in the Maelstrom Zone along with the assistance of the Lamenters and Mantis Warriors. Over time the Maelstrom Warders became disenfranchised with Terra and sought more independent control of the Maelstrom Zone. Motivated by greed, other factions saw a chance to strike and through a series of events the Astral Claws came under the scrutiny of Terra. The Red Scorpions then led a contingent to bring the Warders back in line. Secrets were revealed and treachery struck and the Maelstrom Zone spiraled into bloody conflict that involved seventeen Space Marine chapters in total.
