The Battle of Nyrcon was a battle of the Horus Heresy fought in 010.M31.

The battle began when Salamanders-led forces backed by 30 Imperial Army Regiments and the Legio Astorum were directed by Rogal Dorn to strike at the Beta-Garmon System in Segmentum Solar. Held by the Emperor's Children, after a hard fought battle at Nycron City on Beta-Garmon II and Beta-Garmon III, the traitors along with Legio Mortis allies were driven out. While the system fell into loyalist hands, within a year the first of a series of traitor counter-attack began with the goal of retaking the system so it could be used as a stepping stone for a push on Terra.[1]
