Solon's Axe is the name of a Tactica Imperium-standard tank formation used by the Imperial Guard. The tanks in the formation spread out over a broad, flat front with trailing edges to cover the flanks. The front acts as a mobile fortress wall, providing protection to assets in the middle, although the potential firing arcs of some elements of the formation may be seriously restricted.[1]

In 3.267.397.M41, this formation was utilized by the Imperial Guard forces fighting against the Orks of Waaagh! Gratzdakka on the Kostoval Flats on the planet Kalidar IV.[1]


  • The formation may take its name from Warmaster Solon, an Imperial Guard commander.
