Doom and I, and pretty much everyone, have never known when exactly the Tyranids invaded Pech -- the old Codex Approved kroot fluff mentions that Anghkor Prok was there, meaning we could only date it generally.
And these other dates -- fantastic, fantastic. After how terrible the Burst Cannon piece was, I had been reticent to purchase the this file. But now that I know it's got both Empire and Enclave fluff... ! Thank you again.

Yes, GW wrote it into that giant block of text (at least in the digital version).Ork Codex: Blood Axes - Da Big Raid wrote:The Blood Axes of Waaagh! Grog tell a story about the greatest Kommando attack ever, known as Da Big Raid. It happened on the world of Vor’sanar, when Waaagh! Grog smashed into the edges of the Tau Empire. Freebooter raids on the Tau planet had been previously repulsed by a huge alien warship with more dakka than anything in the Ork fleet. Called the Korst’la by the Tau and Da Big Dakkaship by the Orks, it stalked the space lanes around Vor’sanar, annihilating anything that trespassed on the Tau Empire. The Korst’la’s only weakness was that it needed to use the huge orbital docks around Vor’sanar to refuel and rearm. While Grog knocked the heads of his Freebooter Kaptins together, trying to get a large enough fleet together to storm the Tau planet, a mob of Blood Axe Kommandos came up with a more cunning plan. They would attack the orbital docks while the Korst’la was away, wrecking the Tau station, and denying the warship a place to repair itself or rearm. The Kommandos set out in a looted Tau transport ship, using captured codes to approach the Vor’sanar dockyard under the pretence of having been damaged in an Ork raid and seeking safe harbour. The Tau were initially suspicious of the lone vessel limping into their station, but every demand for identification was met with a satisfactory response, and the idea that Orks could undertake such a ruse was unthinkable to the Tau. It was a horrific surprise then when the vacuum seals opened and Ork Kommandos poured out into the station. By the time the Tau had mustered to repel the invaders, the Kommandos had reached the station’s reactors. Smashing them to scrap, they set off a chain reaction, dooming the station and allowing Waaagh! Grog to ransack Vor’sanar and ultimately the entire sector.
I checked a friend's hardcopy and it's on pg 24 (the "Dark Millennium" timeline itself starts on pg 22).Lyi'ot wrote:I had updated the timeline with the "War Zone Damocles" entry in Codex: Astra Militarum. However, I have a digital copy of the codex; the hard page number of the timeline entry would be appreciated.
