The Scouring of the Ollanz Cluster was a battle of the Horus Heresy, taking place in 012.M31.[1]

As the traitorous Warmaster Horus advanced on the Ollanz Cluster, he encountered loyalist forces bound for Beta-Garmon. The loyalist fleet rapidly redeployed to oppose the traitors in the Borman System. The turning point of the brief but intense conflict came at Borman IV, when a Legio Astorum demi-Legio launched a daring offensive towards the planet's beleaguered capital city which was besieged by the Emperor's Children. The crucial Titan battle took place in the volcanic Yrevendi Desert immediately north to the capital as Princeps Seniores Varr Harax launched a surprise thrust through rough terrain at a weak point in the defences of the Legio Fureans.

Supported by the Iron Hands, the loyalists succeeded in annihilating the Legio Fureans. They then reached the Emperor's Children lines and relieved the capital city. Ultimately, Borman IV and the entire Ollanz Cluster were won from the traitors, allowing for them to be redeployed to their original destination of Beta-Garmon.[1]
