Possibly Ludoldus or Kordhel was during the Nimbosa Crusade, depending on the actual date of the campaign.

Information about the Nimbosa is rather fractured and conflicting. More to come.

745.M41 Hive Fleet Behemoth (p10 Codex Tyranids)
790.M41 Nimbosa massascre (p22 Codex Imperial Guards 5th)
990.M41 Hive Fleet Kraken (p22 Codex Tyranids)

(possibly mistaking Behemoth for Kraken)
"When Hive Fleet Kraken invaded Ultima Segmentum, Imperial forces from across the length of the Eastern Fringe were diverted to meet this new threat. Sensing an opportunity to enlarge their empire while the Imperium was thus distracted, the Tau wasted no time in annexing a series of Imperial worlds along their Border. Nimbosa was the most important of these worlds.

"With the majority of Imperial Guard and Imperial Navy units redeployed to fight the Tyranid threat, the Tau landed a vast invasion force on Nimbosa. Commander Brightsword, teh leader of the Tau, set about the systematic extermination of the populace."
