Forgeworld Friday - Solar Auxilia Surgeon

After a debate on Twitter I have recently been looking into the Solar Auxilia to tempt me into my first 30k army. I love the Astra Militarum and the Solar Auxilia models are absolutely amazing, in fact the only thing holding me back is the price that such an army would cost to put together.

Anyway, today's email from Forgeworld has cranked up the tension between my heart and my wallet with the release of the Solar Auxilia Surgeon - Primus Aevos Jovan & Medicae Orderlies. They look amaaaaaazing!!!
Solar Auxilia Surgeon-Primus Aevos Jovan & Medicae Orderlies
To boot the character has a cool backstory:

Aevos Jovan began his career as a physician to the wealthy and powerful of the prosperous Imperial hive world of Agathon in the days before the Horus Heresy. A healer and surgeon of consummate skill, he was regarded as a genius among his peers and a wonder-worker by the hive’s nobility. Rumours began to circulate, however, that he was putting the vast wealth he earned from his practice into pursuing private research into medical techniques not only considered scandalously unorthodox, but which also reached into territories forbidden by the law of Imperial Compliance. Eventually arrested and tried for criminal malfeasance and the infliction of unnecessary operations in order to support his secret agenda, he was awaiting execution at the time of Ireton MaSade’s military coup, and subsequently offered amnesty by the Lord Marshal in payment for service in the ranks of his Solar Auxilia forces. Watched closely by medicae staff who were as in awe of his abilities as they were suspicious of his motives in equal turns, Jovan exchanged the chambers of the wealthy for the blood and carnage of the battlefield as a new theatre for his unmatched skill in repairing rent flesh and ravaged organs.

And some ok rules such as auto passing 1 feel no pain roll each turn and a feel no pain pass on a 4+ for any unit he is attached to.

I have to say that Forgeworld are doing a fantastic job with the Solar Auxilia, they really do feel like a historic Astra Militarum army and some of the models are jaw dropping. I guess the poster that came with the email is calling me damn them....
