The Battle of Exyrion was a battle fought in the Great Scouring between the Dark Angels and Iron Warriors, said to be of a scale unseen since the Battle of Prospero.[1b]

The Iron Warriors were aided by the Fallen[1a], and at least one Warlord Class Titan fought in the battle. A number of Dark Angels were also killed aboard an observation platform that orbited Exyrion.[1b]

The battle ended with both sides, and almost all life in the Calaphrax Cluster, annihilated when the Iron Warriors activated a weapon of such cataclysmic power that it ended a million lives in a single stroke, the resultant psychic howl causing a warp-storm to tear across the Calaphrax Cluster, cutting it off from the Imperium for ten millennia.[1b]
