The Malagant Conflict was a battle of the Horus Heresy fought in 011.M31.

Following major traitor advances, Death Guard elements assigned to garrison Barbarus spearheaded an assault into the southern Imperium, making the Hive World of Malagant its prime target. Yet while the Death Guard had expected to crush the Imperial Army auxilia on Malagant quickly, they found themselves mired in a cunning guerrilla war led by surviving Raven Guard. For the next 3 years, little more than a Company of Raven Guard bogged down an entire Death Guard Chapter until 014.M31 when they retreated due to loyalist reinforcements from Inwit.[1]
