Forge World rolls out more of their models they had at their Games Day into public purchase mode with the two Solar Auxilia artillery pieces: the rapier quad multi-laser and the quad mortar. Apparently, four is the magic number when it comes to Solar Auxilia barrels. Whether you prefer the direct-fire of a laser, or the lobbing blasts of a mortar, they’ve got you covered. Either burn your enemy in their boots, or blast them out of them. The choice is yours.
Orders are being taken now with shipping to happen next week.
From the release:
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. Whilst 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 Mortar and Solar Auxilia Rapier Quad Multi-laser can both be taken as part of an Auxilia Rapier Battery in Solar Auxilia armies in Horus Heresy games. Rules for these units can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Four – Conquest.
These two complete multi-part resin kits each include a Solar Auxilia Rapier with two crew members. They are available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 20th March.
