Homer-a-Day, Day 25: Ajax the Greater

Ajax Pattern Astartes Bolter
Despite their similar naming and a shared optimisation for close quarters battle, the Ajax pattern bolter is a completely different implement of war from the Ajax pattern bolt pistol also used by some chapters of the Adeptus Astartes.
The greater Ajax is trusted as a weapon in defense and protracted engagements, with a higher ammunition capacity than many other patterns including the widely used Godwyn and a well earned reputation for extreme reliability.

Homer-a-Day – one Homer inspired Warhammer 40,000 article per day, for one month. Pure hubris, incited when a stroll through our own archives led first to reexamining the Odysseus Pattern Astartes Greatbow and then to the exchange quoted above.

Don’t uncork what you can’t contain.
