Like many other worlds Kalides Prime found itself stranded in the Dark Imperium, following the aftermath of the Great Rift's creation. Sometime afterwards it fell to a Death Guard invasion,[1a] when nearly 200-300 Chaos Space Marines[1b] descented to the planet and devastated it.[1a]

The Cadian Imperial Guard of the Cadian 44th Heavy Infantry[1d] garrisoned on the planet fought proudly but were hardly pressed by Death Guard Marines and raised by their diseased magic Poxwalkers, so retreated to the bounds of astropathic fortress to make a last stand. They were helped by arriving of the Ultramarines Strike Cruiser Primarch's Sword with the Primaris Space Marines force of Lieutenant Cassian[1b] though it is not saved them because Death Guard, their mutant-zombies[1c] and Daemonic allies[1e] were really hard opponents.[1f]

As a result of long, bloody and filthy battle, all of the Cadian were killed[1f] and the Ultramarines suffered heavy losses. The Primaris Space Marines were managed though to activate a miraculously survived astropath choir of the Kalides Prime and to call out the help from other forces of the Indomitus Crusade. Also Cassian killed the Chaos Lord Gurloch in the battle-duel and so the Death Guard forces were dispersed without their commander.[1c]

After defeating the Death Guard traitors, Kalides Prime was declared purgatus extremis. The main fortress was bombed into rubble and the lower atmosphere of the planet was crammed with servitor-mines to prevent the Death Guard to return for their warriors.[1c]
