Before its destruction, its main focus was on the minerals mined there, which mainly consisted of precious metals and gems, but which also included metals used in the hulls of starships. It had a very small population of around 9,000, which were mainly located in scattered villages and towns in the planet's eastern mountain ranges.[1a]. Barbarus Prime was the first planet in Tarsis Ultra's system to be invaded by Tyranids during the defence of Tarsis Ultra; the population held out for about a week, aided by updrafts from plains ajacent to the eastern mountain ranges which blew the Mycetic Spores into the mountains. The population also used their firearms, ranging from ancient rifles to autoguns to the lasguns of the PDF.[1b] Ultimately, however, they held out long enough for the Imperial fleet to arrive and watch Barbarus Prime being consumed.[1c]
