Solar Auxilia

From Horus Heresy Supplement
Jump to: navigation, search


Solar Auxilia armies have a Strategy Rating of 3. All formations have an Initiative rating of 2+. Two Solar Auxilia Support Detachments may be chosen for each Solar Auxilia Line Detachment. Each detachment may purchase up to three upgrades, each upgrade can only be chosen once per detachment.
Up to 1/3 of the army's points may be spent on Allies or Lords Of War.

Special Rules


Dracosan Armoured Transport and Stormlord units may only transport units from their own formation. I.e. the rules for War Engine transports do not apply to them when using the Solar Auxilia army list.

Legate Commander

A Solar Auxilia army may include one Legate Commander character per 500 points, or part thereof, in the army. The Legate Commanders do not cost any points. Legate Commander units may be added to the army at the start of the battle before either side sets up. If the army includes a Lord Marshall, then the first Legate Commander must be attached to the Lord Marshall's formation. Any further Legate Commanders may be attached to any other formations. You may not include more than one Legate Commander per formation. You may not add a Legate Commander to an Imperial Navy or allied formation. If you have more Legate Commanders than formations, any excess is lost.


Armies may ally with a wide range of factions in the Heresy supplement, while some are easily incorporated into your force others have a disruptive effect on your overall strategy. Any formations from a “Disruptive” ally reduce the army’s strategy rating by 1. Additionally, Supreme Commander rerolls may not be used on “Disruptive” ally formations. Allied force selections must comply with any restrictions within their own army lists. When including formations from an ally army list, the restrictions for Space Craft and Supreme Commanders are applied across the entire force. Only one Supreme Commander can be selected and he must come from the primary army list. For example, an allies line detachment must be purchased before you can purchase an allies support detachment.
