The Battle of Maulland Sen, also called the Battle of the Red Frost, was a battle between the Emperor of Mankind's newly-created Thunder Legion and the Maulland Sen Confederacy early in the Unification Wars.[2]

With the fall of Maulland Sen, the forces of the Emperor were confident that Nordyc would be brought to heel. Although the forces of the Emperor were outnumbered seven to one and suffered several thousand casualties, they were able to defeat the horde of genetically-altered warriors, witch-marked men, and zealots that followed the Priest-King of Maulland Sen. The Priest-King was captured by the Custodians and executed by the Emperor in the aftermath of the battle.[1]

An account of the battle was preserved in the Trans-Nordic Akashic archives. According to this record, it was one of the Custodians who executed the Priest-King.[2]
