|I just love these sculpts - amazing work by Forge World|
|Storm Section leader; hard to see in this blurry photo, but he is chomping on a cigar; a nice little character feature; if you are going to wander around the battlefields of the 30k setting with your helmet open, you might as well enjoy it|

|"Get us some help!!"|
|Great animation on this figure|
|Two more Velatarii|
|You can see the grenades hanging from their belts - lovely details on this sculpt|
|My first Solar Auxilia Tercio - sorry about the crap photo, but that's iPhones for you...|
Wow, these guys are awesome Greg! As you say, the incremental up-armouring of these models is very well done - they definitely look to be a heavier version of the regular Solar Auxilia yet without going into 'sacred' Space Marine territory. Again, your choice to go with bronze for their plating is excellent as it reinforces the slightly baroque, steam-punky design of their armour. Lovely stuff.
I definitely want to run with these guys when we get our next 30K game in. Dibs!!
