From bell of lost souls...

"Mordia Prime
Space Wolves, Blood Angels vs Mordian Iron Guard (IG)
As on Tiefwald, a strong human military culture has slowed the advance of these 2 legions. Leman Russ himself is said to be personally directing this campaign's continued operations.
World Status: Non-compliance"

As a mordan player I am intrested. I knew that Mordian Prime has been around for a long while, but are they detailed in a heresy book?

If so how do they fare against the marines and what is diffrent? (Do they control a sub-sector or where they once an empire?)

Well, Mordia is a planet that has had frequent problems with Chaos IIRC, so that might explain it.

I'm pretty sure Bell of Souls is just picking that write-up to describe an IG Mordian army vs. space marines in a way that fits the Heresy timeline. Kind of like how they played against Necron armies as "techno heretics" as opposed to "Necrons" and Tyranids as various other "bug" races. So this isn't a reference to some specific fluff that I'm aware of, though the idea of Mordia having to be conquered certainly makes sense, I imagine a lot of the famous worlds required that during the Crusade.

Wasn't the planet from which these happy dress-uniformed Guardsmen hail called Mordian as opposed to Mordia? http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Mordian

There are lots of similar named worlds in the galaxy, including probably hundreds of these named Macharia.

3rd ed codex here says "Mordia," though these things may change with time.
