|This article is about the Alpha Legion-sponsored rebellion; for the other uses, see Luxor.|
The Luxor Uprising was an Alpha Legion-sponsored rebellion that took place in 812.M41. The workforce of the industrial world Luxor rose up against the cruel regime of the ruling Oligarchs. As a lynch-pin of the Helioret Sector, itself crucial to the supply lines of the northern Ultima Segmentum, the loss of the planet could leave hundreds of worlds vulnerable to attack. The Ultramarines and Novamarines Chapters launched a swift counter-attack before all Imperial resistance was defeated. In this campaign also took part the Cadian 98th Armoured Regiment. Although vastly outnumbered, the Space Marines and the surviving loyal workers, were able to crush the rebels and their Alpha Legion masters, returning Luxor to Imperial control in less than a year.
