But I remember reading that passage and every detail about how Calgar consistently beat the eldar at every turn.

In the time it took to lose dozens of eldar trying to take some shitty tomb, one would think the farseer in charge would sit down, toss the runes and think before attacking papa smurf. Calgar has nothing to fall back on except his volumes of "if this, then that".

This farseer kept sending warriors to attack, which suggests a significant level of certainty. It just comes down to retarded writing to me.
