Horus Heresy 2e Review: Solar Auxilia Surgeon-Primus Aevos Jovan

Warpstone Flux Rating: ⭐️⭐️
2/5 stars. A peculiar mix of rules within a unit and a unique character.

Tried for being far too unorthodox in his medical techniques, Aevos is also a genius. Or madman. He probably would have been great among the Emperors Children to be honest. Regardless, he got a reprieve from execution and now serves in the Solar Auxilia where he is regarded in awe for his surgery, and similarly feared. 

I don't quite know what to make of this unit. The man comes with an Auto-Gurney which once per turn might save a man that otherwise would perish within a certain radius. You can also sacrifice Orderlies to help nudge the outcome of the surgery in a certain direction. 

T=3.  BS=WS=2. He's not a fighter and this is not the reason you're buying him, even though he comes with a needle pistol. 

His infamy also means that there's a Ld-1 penalty within the same radius as the auto-gurney. He's also a low priority target to enemies and cannot be targeted by shooting or reactions unless within 12 inches. 

Honestly, he's a mixed bag. You'll be taking him for fluffy reasons, and frankly, why not. 

Aevos Jovan, with 3 Orderlies (75 points).
Might as well take the maximum number of orderlies permitted I think. It is an expensive unit for what it does. You probably won't see him on the field often, so relish the times that you do.
