The Defense of Aurent was a battle between the Imperium and Ulthwé Eldar in 992.M41. It helped raise the profile and prestige of Imperial Guard Commander Ursarkar Creed.[1]


Eldar forces from Craftworld Ulthwé attacked Cadian holdings on Aurent. Ursarkar Creed implemented a complex web of contingency plans and sealed, time-delayed orders coupled with psychic obfuscation provided by an entire coven of Primaris Psykers. Creed’s tactical genius overcame even the vaunted Eldar powers of prescience, securing an overwhelming Cadian victory at the very gates of Aurent’s Hive Primus.[1]
