Horus Heresy 2e Review: Alexis Polux

Warpstone Flux Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
4/5 stars. The rules are strong and somewhat unique. I think Polux is ideal for lower points games. 

The master of the Imperial Fists retribution fleet and he who would become the founder of the Crimson Fists, Polux's name was already a known before the Heresy thanks to his giant frame and strength even for a space marine. More than this, he was also a tactical genius and well suited to void warfare.

The ability to redeploy one unit as a warlord trait is fine without being game dominating, and his bonus reaction during the assault phase is strong. 

As a void commander, he gives deep strike to any unit he joins in reserves and also can choose to pass or fail pinning tests. This is unique in the game and powerful. Combined with his hammer blow (S=10) strike, Polux is a powerful leader to choose without being game breaking. 

A sound choice for a HQ where the points don't allow someone like Sigismund or Rogal Dorn. No particular weaknesses here and a unique HQ choice.

Tailor your army according to his abilities. Take a large unit into reserves with him and deep strike into position without worrying about being pinned. Arm that unit with either close combat, or a combination of short ranged firepower and close combat to make the most of things. An ideal choice for a lower points game in my opinion.
