Alright anons, let's roll up a regiment!

A mostly male nobility leads a milita of chattel and peasants. While large portions of the planet are Civilized, outside of those areas is a Catcus Jungle Deathworld (With hidden ancient pyramids, by jove). The nobility lead constant expeditions to raid these ruins.

The miltias tend to be MECHANIZED/HEAVY/INFANTRY that specializes in Close Combat/Shock and Awe tactics. (Bayoneted Rocket Launchers?)

While the coolies are FANATICAL, the nobility themselves are merely Adherents, but tend to disseminate that Mutiny is Heresy in the eyes of The Emperor.

The nobilty also ride Exotic Mounts as status symbols, and often compare their mounts with one another. Typically a form of Krieg horse is common among the nobility, and breeding papers can extend several generations but every once in a while, a particular noble will try to get attention with a mount of another type.

They all fight For the Homeworld. The Nobles in particular compete for Homeworld Status...

Some Nobles get noticed by the Arbites or thee Administratum, and "Old friends" often pull strings for one another.

They are particular enemies of Chaos Space Marines and Chaos Organization Y, while their raiding of old Elder tombs hasn't made them friends of the Dark Elder. Their Sadles also tend to be made of the Finest Sarharduin skins, and imported Sarharduin cavier is a delicacy.

>> No.46131812

>> No.46132058

Could be that it's differing levels of noble. Upper middle-class and lower nobility get to be the grunts and footsloggers, while the higher and richer nobles get to be the officers.

The regiment's social dynamics would wind up all Game of Thrones, but at the same time they see the grunts as also nobility, so NCOs can actually get a commission and join the officer's club.

To outsiders though, the entire regiment would be a several thousand-strong officer's club, while the actual warrior nobles like Vostroya would probably look down on them for being militia.

>> No.46132099

What are you doing outside of Tumblr?

Here's the Spectres if anyone's interested. They're stealth-defense imperial fists successors

How is it that some regiments/chapters get thread after thread of fleshing out while others die by the second thread? What keeps the fluffing out going?

Is there a way to do the hussar wings as Aquilla wings? I know that Dark Angels kinda already do the hussar wings, which is why I'm not particularly fond of the idea.

>> No.46153265

Yeah, but the Hussar wings are over shadowed with monk robes and terrible models.

Hussars have armour and animal pelts and sabers and lances to help them stand out.

I'm beginning to rethink the whole Hussars bit. Doesn't make much sense with their homeworld.

Conquistadors, Hussars or something else?

>> No.46157142

I like conquistadors, but it can be Rommel in space

>> No.46157896

Rommel would be tanks, and Armageddon Steel Legion have already taken the whole panzer division schtick

I'm just trying hard to find them interesting.

I know people have been talking combined arms, but why not mechanised cavalry? Rock up in a fleet of Gorgons, which open the doors and then cavalry charge?

To pick up a dead post, being cavaliers, I do thing they should be undisciplined, rather pushing forwards and keep going, damn the battle plan. Very Prince Rupert.

Then with the grenade launcher/flamer debate, why not both? Pop smokes and frags from a few hundred away to survive the charge, and then bear down upon these godless heathens with sheets of flame?

And if we're being Polish, Kawaliers, please.
Just my thoughts.

You mean Crassus? Because Gorgons are pretty damn slow, they're basically land-based Higgins boats for the siege regiments to deploy the troops.
