Battle for Armageddon: Which armies fought?


I am playing around wiht some army theme ideas, and I was wondering which IG armies fought in the battle for Armageddon... This is your chance to shine 40k nerds! From what I have gathered so far, elements of Armageddon Steel Legion, Cadian 8th, Death Corps of Krieg were all involved. Were there any more notable forces? Which Space Marine chapters were there? I know Blood Angels, Sallies and Black Templars were there...

I am more concerned about battles 2 and 3 for this one, since all guardsmen who fought in the 1st war were sterilized and sent to slave labor. So please share your insight, or point out the offical 40k fluff gods of your favorite forum to this blog so he can come share his knowledge!

The armageddon codex had the names and sizes of all imperial forces in the 3rd war for arnageddon.important regiments that havent been said yet are the savlar chem dogs, mordians and elysians. It's more like what regiments didnt fight. The marine forces were vast asell. White scars, mortifactors, raptors and storm lords to name a few. Also there were some SoBs and skitarii.

Savlar Chem Dogs are an awesome modeling opportunity that you might consider, JB.

Bigred is the keeper of all that knowledge, including some non-official stuff that is worth knowing, so I'll make him write you some notes.
