Legions Imperialis – Aeronautica Imperialis

After talking about the use of Titans in Legions Imperialis and Adeptus Titanicus, we want to take a look on the flyers and air supporting units, that can be used with Legions Imperialis. And while Titanicus is entirely set in the Horus Heresy, Aeronautica Imperialis wasn't, which means not all units and products will return as part of the new extended range of Legions.

What is the biggest change for the Aeronautica boxed sets? Well, the Aeronautica bases will be replaced with new Legions Imperialis flying bases. Unlike Titanicus, Aeronautica didn't provide gaming material with the miniature boxes, the cards etc. were either sold separately or was part of the starter boxes.

And similar to AT, we try to answer a few questions regarding the transition of Aeronautica Imperialis


Legions Imperialis – The Costs of the Garmon Purge

In White Dwarf #493 October 2023 we had the first battle report on Legions Imperialis, incl. the rules of the first supplement The Great Slaughter. We see a battle between the Blood Angels and a Death Guard Army incl. Allies, to show a full battle of 3.000 Points.

As many thought The Great Slaughter would cover the Istvaan atrocity, it was actually the name for the Battle of Beta Garmon, which we had insights in with the Adeptus Titanics supplement of Titan Death. This would make sense, first of all as it is the name of the battle report, it would tie in other branches of the war, but the Death Guard wasn't really involved according to lore.


Legions Imperialis – The Solar Auxilia

The second force within the new Legions Imperialis core set is the Solar Auxilia. Similar to the Legiones Astartes, we have the Infantry set available as part of the first wave. The Baneblade / Hellhammer will be covered in an article of its own.

So today, we will look into the Solar Auxilia Infantry (incl. Charonite Ogryns and Aethon Heavy Sentinels), as well the Leman Russ and Malcador which are currently exclusive to the core set.

Each of boxes cover two identical sprues at a RRP of 40 EUR / 30 GBP. Decals are only included with the vehicle kits. Let's start with the Infantry.


Warhammer The Horus Heresy – Legions Imperialis – Unboxing

It is finally here! We have a large release for Legions Imperialis, battles within the Horus Heresy in an epic scale! And we start with an unboxing of the starter set, covering Legiones Astartes, Solar Auxilia and even two Warhounds.

This will be the initial unboxing, followed by detailed, indepth reviews, as you have seen it in the past for example with the Age of Darkness or Leviathan boxed set. And it is great that we return once again to when I was there the day Horus slew the Emperor.
