bobcatForge World has released a new round of Solar Auxilia models. They are available for pre-order, and will be shipped out at the end of this week on March 20th.

Forge World’s quality is always unrivaled. There is some thin bits on the Ogryn I’d be worried about snapping, but for the most part these look pretty good. I also think the Rapier looks how I would design a gun car if I only had a Bobcat front-end loader and a minigun.

The rules for these models can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Four – Conquest.

Without further ado, here’s the models and Forge World’s official write up.


Solar Auxilia Rapier Quad Multi-Laser

The Rapier weapons platform is used extensively by the Solar Auxilia. Its hard-wearing armoured track system and high load capacity make it ideal for carrying powerful weapons that are too heavy for an auxiliary to carry into battle.The quad multi-laser tears through enemy infantry formations in rapid firing bursts, the terrifying sound of which has heralded the advance, and victory, of the Solar Auxilia for generations.

The Solar Auxilia Rapier Quad Multi-Laser can be taken as part of an Auxilia Rapier Battery in Solar Auxilia armies in Horus Heresy games. Rules for this unit can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Four – Conquest.


Solar Auxilia Rapier Quad Mortar

The Rapier weapons platform is used extensively by the Solar Auxilia. Its hard-wearing armoured track system and high load capacity make it ideal for carrying powerful weapons that are too heavy for an auxiliary to carry into battle. The long-range firepower of the quad mortar is used to suppress enemy troops and even crack through their armoured bunkers.

Solar Auxilia Ogryn Charonite Squad


Building on the already massive frame of an Ogryn, Solar Auxilia Charonite squads have been biochemically and cybernetically altered using ancient technologies, possibly of xenos origin, that have been deemed unholy by the Mechanicum. The result is a creature that will blindly follow orders, but which at the touch of a button will become a savage and near-unstoppable brute.

With the Ogryns’ hands and forearms replaced by a brutal collection of mechanisms known as Charonite claws, which amplify their already fearsome strength, Ogryn Charonite squads can rip through armour plating with ease, devastating their foes in the brutal confines of boarding actions. It is little wonder then that as the wars of the Horus Heresy became ever more ferocious, Loyalist Solar Auxilia commanders increasingly turned to the creation of Charonites, particularly when facing Traitor Legiones Astartes and the forces of the Dark Mechanicum.
