Bullgryns are a type of heavy infantry unit used by the Astra Militarum, the front line military force of the Imperium of Man. A variation of the Ogryn sub-species of humans, they are known for their imposing size and heavily augmented bodies, which are built for close combat and able to withstand heavy punishment.
Bullgryns are often used as shock troops, capable of charging into the enemy ranks and causing havoc with their brute strength and powerful melee weapons. They are also used to defend key positions and fortifications, using their durability to hold the line against enemy attacks.
Bullgryns are heavily armoured soldiers equipped with customized Carapace Armor made from recycled tank tracks. They carry a variety of crude, close-combat weapons designed to take advantage of their imposing size and durability. Some Bullgryns carry Power Mauls and Brute Shields, while others are known for using Slabshields, which can be locked together to create a mobile shield wall. When deployed in this way, Bullgryns provide their comrades with cover as they advance across the battlefield, absorbing large amounts of enemy fire in the process.
Bullgryns are very serious about their protective duties and will often form a shield wall at the first sign of gunfire. While this can be inconvenient in crowded trenches, the soldiers who advance behind a Bullgryn squad are often grateful for the protection as shots bounce harmlessly off the Bullgryns’ shields.
Unfortunately, Bullgryns suffer heavy casualties in battle, but they often inflict brutal damage on their enemies with their Grenadier Gauntlets, which can be used for close-range bombardments. When they charge into enemy ranks with their mauls, they often leave a trail of bloody pulverized bodies in their wake.
