(37) Another remade regiment from earlier in the thread, so I didn't mention it was a Schola Progenium before (I didn't know that was an option till I got the MRB). Quite happy with this regiment, seems like it would be effective but I guess it depends on your specialisations. And it has bags of background, hey if you get logistics level over 70 you might even get to direct Pluto itself.

The Ionian 132nd Fusiliers 'Grand Slam'

Home-world: Schola Progenium 3

Regiment Type: Siege Infantry 2

Commander: Abstruse 1

Doctrines: Sharpshooters 4,  Augmetics 2

 

Characteristic Modifiers: +3 Willpower, +3 Ballistic skill, +3 Toughness, -3 Intelligence

Aptitudes: Ballistic Skill

Skills: Common Lore (Imperium), Common Lore (Imperial Guard), Common Lore (War), Linguistics (Low Gothic, High Gothic), Tech Use, Common Lore (Adeptus Mechanicus), Common Lore (Tech)

Starting Talents: Dead Eye Shot, Air of Authority, Unshakable Faith, Nerves of Steel

Abilities:

Only in death does duty end

Starting Wounds: +1

Kit: Guard uniform, poor weather gear, knife, rucksack, basic tools, mess kit and canteen, blanket and sleep bag, lamp pack, cognomen tags, uplifting primer,  two weeks rations,

Additional Kit: Telescopic Sight, Triplex Pattern Lasgun, Photo visor, Chrono

Favoured weapons: Plasma Gun, Las Cannon

 

New Commander type:

Abstruse

The commander is Technical and Methodological. They aware of the specifications of every vehicle, the capabilities of every unit. The commander has a tie to the Adeptus Mechanicus and approaches war with the same mechanical approach. Comparing each enemy formation with the capabilities of his own. While this is often effective the commander can become overstretched when real world circumstances prove on the theoretical performance inaccurate.

Cost: 1

Starting Skills: Common Lore (Adeptus Mechanicus), Common Lore (Tech)

1356th Mephidross Deadwalkers

Homeworld:Penal world of Mephidross

Unit Type: Light Infantry

Regimental Breakdown:

Five Full Strength Rifle companies, two Long Range Companies, one Heavy support Company, and a Mechanicus Detatchment (note, there is a disproportionately low number of Commisars in the Deadwalkers, despite their classification as a Penal Legion)

Unit History: 

The Mephidross Deadwalkers are a unique penal legion in that they come from a planet specifically specifically colonized to create penal legions. Mephidross is a nightmare of a world where only the strongest survive, and only the worst kind of military prisoners go there: Disgraced Naval officers, homicidal guardsmen, Commisars who failed to execute their duty, to name a few. and every fifty years, the Munitorum comes to the planet, where they collect those who have survived on Mephidross to give them another chance to serve the Imperium. 

Despite their poor beginnings and constant stationings at suicide fronts, the self titled "Deadwalkers" are quite possibly some of the most dogged and determined defenders of the imperium. this is because of a deal between the Deadwalkers and the Munitorum called the Shallow Grave Compact. Deadwalkers who survive fifty years in the field are granted a full imperial pardon and elevated to the rank of Lieutenant, where they are then transferred to command positions with the next incarnation of the deadwalkers. Mephidross Officers that survive multiple incarnations of the Regiment are further promoted to more and more important command positions. this means that the entire command structure of the Deadwalkers is made up of former convicts criminals, who understand their men's desire to be free, and aspire to make sure that their men do in fact make it that far. 

Because of this, The Deadwalkers benefit from an above average camoradarie with their officers and fellow guardsmen, fighting side by side to keep eachother alive so that they may one day take over for their officers. however, they do not look favorably on some of the imperial agents they are forced to entertain, namely the hated officers of the Commisariat. 

 

Game Hints: there are almost no Commisars in the Deadalkers, and what few there are can only be found with the upper echelons of the Legion. as such, Commisars should not be a playable specialty. also, their constant fighting in the prison colonies of the planet of  Mephidross has bred a hardy and brutal people, and that should be reflected in their makeup.

(This is a regiment me and some friends came up with as a group, during the Beta. Another one, for a game just starting, will follow in a moment.)

 

The 117th Janjiran Kshatriya Guards

 

Starting Wounds: Normal

Characteristics Modifiers: +3 Ballistics, +2 Weapon Skill, +3 Willpower, +3 Agility, -3 Perception

Starting Skills: Common Lore (War), Common Lore (Imperium), Common Lore (Imperial Guard), Operate (Surface)

Talents: Hatred (Greenskins), Nerves of Steel OR Sprint, Resistance (Fear), Rapid Reload, Street Fighting

Favored Basic: Plasma Gun

Favored Heavy: Heavy Bolter

Traits

Hated Enemy (Greenskins): At GM discretion, members of the regiment make a +10 Willpower test to restrain themselves from attacking Orks when sighted.

Bred for War: Must pass a +0 Willpower Test in order to defy Imperial Guard rules and regulations, thanks to the great honor and loyalty of the regiment.

Mechanized Infantry: Each squad possesses one Chimera IFV.

Augmetics: +10 on all Logistics tests to acquire cybernetics, thanks to strong ties with the Cult Mechanicus.

Standard Kit

One Uniform, Poor Weather Gear, M36 Lasgun and 4 charge packs (Main Weapon), One Mono-Knife (Melee), 2 frag grenades, 2 krak grenades, one set of full Best-Quality Guard Flak Armor, Rucksack or sling bag, one set of basic tools, one Grapnel, One Micro-bead communicator, One mess kit and canteen, One blanket and sleeping bag, One rechargeable lamp, One grooming kit, One set of ID, One guard handbook, 4 weeks of rations, including amazingly awesome coffee and tea.

Vehicle
Chimera Armored Transport

Fluff

Janjira is a fortress world, a desert planet but rife with beautiful oases with crystalline water and several expansive tropical jungles in the southern hemisphere. The inside of the planet is just packed full of extremely valuable minerals and metals that the Adeptus Mechanicus requires to build the machines that help to keep the Imperial military marching on, from ships to vehicles to the most humble of charge packs.

Janjira is, of course, also a hot target for alien forces. It is perched near the edge of space that is claimed as territory by an Ork Warboss known as the Arch-Arsonist. Orks, thereby, regularly assault Janjira in an attempt to oust the human presence there and hollow it out for more 'flash gubbinz.' They are seeded amongst the southern jungles, but the deserts and savannahs that make up the majority of the planet's surface make them clear targets for the heavy artillery and mechanized forces that the Janjirans tend to employ, furnished by their Mechanicus backers and a good presence of tech-priests to keep it all running on the arid planet.

The 117th Janjiran Kshatriya are a versatile and hardened regiment of the Janjiran Guard, quick to mount up in chimera tanks and move out to sensitive locations, sealing breaches in desert walls and clearing land of Greenskin settlement with lightning tactics and utter hatred and impunity. Their excellent record, cavalier commander and oddly diverse makeup cause some other regiments to refer to the 117th as 'The Kitchen Sink.' If nothing else works, throw the 117th at it and they will get the job DONE.

Regimental History:
The First Arcturus Void Stalkers saw their creation in the first days of the Arcturus Rebellion in 936.M40. A group of planets in the Arcturus system at the far edge of imperial space declared themselves sovereign from the Imperium and began furiously attacking any imperial forces that entered their space. Their efforts were mostly effective but did not count on one of the planets PDF forces remaining loyal. These forces detached themselves from the traitors and staged guerrilla warfare through the system attempting to weaken them and buy time for Imperial forces to mass and retake the system.

This is where the Void Stalkers were first formed. Lacking proper boarding methods the soldiers found with work and training squads could be equipped with void suits and other equipment to make "dynamic entry points" into enemy ships and stations using demolition charges, crippling ships with minimal damage allowing them to be added to their own forces. These early troops were able to slip largely undetected towards larger ships and plant demolition and melta charges at key locations causing massive depressurization of the command deck, weapon decks, and other places rendering them useless before the main forces would jump into deal with the crippled ships.

Their rolls were expanded to more "conventional" uses after the capture of several Space stations allowing the Imperial Forces to gain a foothold with which to stage attacks on Traitor planets, eventually recapturing them. Equipped with Grav-Chutes the Void Stalkers were able to fast drop behind enemy lines working to sabotage enemy weapon emplacements, supply lines, and help with fast strike responses against the traitors leaders storming their very homes. By the time the Imperial forces had managed to arrive at the system already a third it had been recaptured, with a quarter total held uncontested.

The Void Stalkers were folded into the Imperial Guard officially at the end of the campaign and served through several theaters where their unique talents have helped end several rebellions quickly and relatively cleanly.

The current Regimental Commanding Officer is Argabash Rinland, known for his actions at the Battle of the Glassy Wall, The Siege of Black Gusland, and the Bombardment of AchBenTur. Contemplative in nature he weighs his decisions before issuing commands making many criticize him for being afraid to commit soldiers to battle and having heavy losses, but his past record has shown no hesitation to send men to die where the need lies.

Addendum: the 'Black Stars'
Like many other worlds, the Fortress system of the Arcturus Drift raises a variety of forces for the Imperium, with its ship-storming Drop Infantry rightfully the most famous. A further legacy of the rebellion that formed them was the creation of a dedicated corps of heavy infantry, not disimilar to the more well known Cadian Kasrkin or Krieg Grenadiers. Rather than be formed in to their own Bridades, they are instead broken up in to squads, and several attached to newly founded regiments of Drop Infantry as they're formed (with later replacements often coming from the regiment's ranks, when equipment can be salvaged from casualties, or the rare resupplies can be acquired). Rather uniquely among the Imperium, these squads are usually broken up even further, with individual members dispersed throughout the regiment, bringing their heavier firepower and die-hard persistence front and centre to the furious room to room combat inside starships and orbitals, or hot landing combat drops, that the fighting men and women of Arcturus are known for.

Scintillian 49th – Metallican Gunslingers

Homeworld: Scintilla / Hive / Calixis Sector

Specialty: Counter Insurgency / Population Suppression

Order of Battle: 6,000 in 8 companies. 5 Companies of light infantry, 3 “responder” light mechanized. Mechanized companies use Chimera, Hellhounds, Sentinels, and lighter fighting vehicles.

CO: Colonel Malakai “Cutter” Raynor, former gang leader

Summary: Drawn from the gangs of Scintilla’s infamous Gunmetal City, the Scintillian 49th specializes in pacifying populations and bringing them under Imperial control by using techniques from their own turf wars on Scintilla. They are equipped with irregular equipment, namely their preference of solid projectile weapons for their louder report and more devastating wounds. Their mechanized companies are for rapid response to support the other companies in a localized population uprising. In keeping with their Metallican history, each soldier is allowed to carry a personally owned sidearm.

Misc.: Few/no Ratlings, Ogryn, or Psykers. Embedded arbites instead of stormtroopers, back alley doctors as medics.

Hook A: The 49th was deployed to the planet to pacify the population, but heavy resistance has sprung up from Chaos elements on planet. Your forces are being deployed to assist the 49th.

Hook B: The 49th is being deployed to a large battlefield, far away from their typical cities. Your regiment is stuck digging them out of trouble frequently.

Rules notes: Hive World (3), Maverick (2), Light Infantry (2), Hardened Fighters (2), and Scavengers (3).

Add’l Kit: Swap Las Carbine for Autogun (0). Add Autopistol (8), upgraded to Good (5). Add smoke grenade (5). Add additional knife (2). Other 10 points to GM discretion.

Some time ago, I made a planet known as Phalanx for a Dark Heresy roleplay, for the purposes of taking our group through a horrid warzone as the world had been under siege from an ork horde for almost 80 years.  It worked, as we constantly ran out of ammo, but had plenty of targets all the way up until we killed the Warboss and then were forced to fight the corrupt governor.  So, here's my take on a regiment (I've actually noticed a lack of armor, to be honest.)

 

222nd Phalanxian Siege Regiment, AKA the "Gravediggers" or the "Triple Two"

Homeworld: Phalanx VII-Fortress World

Unit Type: Siege brigade with limited artillery and armored support

Regimental History: Phalanx is a world of strife.  During the Horus Heresy, a group of renegade Imperial Army soldiers tried taking the planet for themselves.  Fortunately, the sheer numbers of the planet's PDF swallowed the rogue soldiers up.  Years ago, in 721.M41, an ork horde descended on the planet, a castoff from the vicious WAAAGH Grimtoof attempting to raze the Spinward Front to the ground.  Phalanx fought back for all it was worth, but by the time Imperial reinforcements answered the call for help to the industrial frontier world, more than half of the world's population had been slaughtered, and many hives destroyed.  In the next ten years, the Guard, Navy and a detachment from the Salamanders fought the orks, finally killing the Warboss and reducing their numbers to what was thought to be manageable for the wrecked PDF.  However, the second the last Imperial ship left the system, the greenskins blitzed the unstable defenders under a new Warboss, Hammafist.  For the next eighty years, the PDF had to fight on their own with what weapons they could scrounge up, and were down to only a half dozen hives and a few million people before the Imperium returned again to finally put the hordes down for good.  Now, Phalanx has been turned into a frontier fortress, it's main export being Guardsmen who live for war and have an extremely stern resolve only seen elsewhere in Cadians (hence their nickname "baby Cadians" to which they have responded with mixed opinions).  Phalanxians are masters of siege and defensive warfare, and churn out a high percentage of mechanized forces that emphasize take and hold tactics with flanking strike forces.  Their reputation is somewhere between Valhallans and Krieg, for they will hold a position to the last man, and they will all hold until the last bullet.

The Gravediggers are the epitomy of siege warfare, taking great inspiration from the Death Korps.  Rather fatalistic themselves, they have resigned to their high casualty rate with the stern resoluteness of their homeworld, pushing on with their heads lowered to should through the punishment.  The 222nd currently fights on the Spinward Front, deployed around Kulth and various worlds nearby.  Every Gravedigger, true to his name, can sculpt out a good defensive position in less than an hour, and with the deployment of heavy weaponry make sure nothing gets past.  Accompanied by a company of Leman Russ tanks, a battery of Basilisks and even a squad of heavy Macharius tanks, the Gravediggers are prepared for everything.  Over a decade of all out war has depleted their ranks, however, and they now sit somewhere around three or four thousand men, a far cry from their original ten-thousand.  Colonel Roth long ago lost the fire that let him inspire his men, so instead Major Syndur commands the regiment, though her lack of official position makes commanding the men complicated with the Commissariat and Administratum.

Whether fighting orks of traitors, the Phalanxians intense hatred of both has allowed them to excel in  this war, and it is less like they were made for the Spinward Front, but more like the Front was made for them.

Hooks Involving the Gravediggers:

Where the Hell are You Going? the player's regiment is in retreat from an overwhelming ork horde, and they come across a company of Gravediggers, already dug in and waiting.  Command has ordered the entire area evacuated to cut down on losses, but the Phalanx soldiers refuse to run from their most hated enemy.  Their equipment is battered and supplies are low, indicating they've already been fighting the orks hard.  The players have to make the choice to either abandon their erstwhile allies for the safety of a larger, better equipped force, stay and fight what looks like a horribly imbalanced battle or convince the stubborn Guardsmen to retreat as well.

Fire Support Requested: the players are moving through an urban battlezone when they stumble across a stranded Macharius tank belong to the Triple Two.  The crew have done their best to repair her, but without infantry support the heavy tank will most certainly be destroyed by the large number of enemy heavy weapon nests ahead.  The two groups must work in conjunction to not only destroy their objective but hopefully get out alive.

Military Specialty: Tank Regiment

Commanding Officer: Col. Petrus Veracruz

 

Home World: Schola Progenium

Commanding Officer: Fixed

Regiment Type: Armoured Regiment

Doctrines: Sharpshooters

Total Cost: 12 points

REGIMENT RULES

Characters belonging to the Salvus Majoris 12th Armoured Regiment gain the following advantages:

Characteristic Modifiers: -3 Weapon Skill, +3 Ballistic Skill, +3 Intelligence, +3 Willpower.

Starting Aptitudes: Ballistics Skill.

Starting Skills: Command, Common Lore (Imperial Guard), Common Lore (Imperium), Common Lore (War) Linguistics (High Gothic), Linguistics (Low Gothic), Operate (Surface)

Starting Talents: Air of Authority or Unshakeable Faith, Deadeye Shot, Technical Knock.

Wounds: Characters from this regiment begin play with +1 starting Wounds.

Standard Regimental Kit: 1 Leman Russ battle tank (or variant, at GM’s discretion) per Squad, and 1 anointed maintenance toolkit per Player Character. One uniform. One set of poor weather gear. One laspistol (Main Weapon), and two charge packs. One knife. One flak vest. One rucksack or sling bag. One set of basic tools. One mess kit and one water canteen. One blanket and one sleep bag. One rechargeable lamp pack. One grooming kit. One set of cognomen tags or equivalent identification. One primer or instructional handbook. Combat sustenance rations, two weeks’ supply. Micro-bead.

The planet Salvus Majoris is famous for its vast extended plains that are perfect for large amount of grain production, but that is a very rare year when people can afford the luxury of leaving their well-defended fortress-cities and use harvesters instead of tanks. The planet lies in a nexus of busy hyperspace lanes, and there is always a xeno race or a chaos cult who try to conquer this planet from the Imperium of Man. The inhabitants live their life in huge fortresses, built by red brick, and these walls broke the enemy tides. And when the enemy tired, their armored units rush out and chase them to the extinction.

In most times orcs try to conquer the planet but the Schola Progenium orphans are well trained soldiers for job.

The 12th Armored is one the most devoted regiment on the planet. They gave up the defense of their home – Parensis fortress-hive – for the call of the Imperium. They served the Imperium on many battlefield but currently, rogue trader Lord Anatol Constantine von Scintilla mustered this regiment and embarked to his flagship’s belly – to the White Queen a sixteen kilometer long Universe-calss Mass conveyor. The ship headed to Koronus Expanse to defend the assets of Imperium (and of course assets of House Constantine).
