Ahh man, I have to right fluff? Ok fine alright. I guess it'd be space 'merica Kansas.

Maybe a religious cult that's trying to eliminate their sins like >>53919620 suggested? That'd fit in for the first part.

Yeah, there friendos with titan legions since they supply them with food and troop support. Natural mechanics hence the mechanization and specialized lasguns. They have a happy-go-lucky attitude towards life and see dying for the emperor as a mighty glory, each man getting our equivalent of a medal of honor for either dying or fighting valiantly against impossible odds. Men will go back to the penal agri world to have kids with their wives/lovers and keep going on tours of duty when not farming. Either that or the first child goes to war.

Not sure about Chaos and Lizard men. I guess they're near warp area or a pirate zone.

especially if the Imperial Knights get dressed up like Russian Tanks.

We can split the difference and make them russian rednecks

We could have it a bit 1920s styled. I'd still like a west/east difference.

Maybe we could have various regiments have various cultural themes. Not to the extent like IRL, but 1920s North America/Europe themed, with some other cultures like Asian and Middle East

NU-UH! You do NOT want anything WHATSOEVER with the irritatingly friendly neighbors, the dirt cheap untouched land, or the almost TOTAL lack of liberalism and tolerance!

Even though this seems to be the direction the thread is going, I would personally veto it. It's so muddled, inconsistent, and memey. Two regiments of clear and distinct pedigree are much better and the interaction between is much more interesting than just mashing them together. It's like shaking oil and water and hoping the two mix eventually, the best you'll get is unusable grease.

Also, while the post apocalyptic stuff is interesting, remember that this isn't a death world but an agriworld. The planet is fertile green, golden, and brown. Not barren.

Agreed. The WWII US heartland has such a wholesome vibe to it. Well except for the deep rooted racism, but when there are xenos and HERETICS about, who has time to be mad at your neighbor because he's a different color?

As for the soviets, it should be a background/detail of the greater culture. Get a bit of that '50s cold war paranoia going.

As for the regiment, what if instead of prison chain gangs it's going into the guard? So not that they're heretics or mass murderers, but petty criminals who are being rewarded for good behavior (read: even if they wouldn't be a major threat to society, they're still a bother so might as well use them). The philosophy that responsibility, structure, and well applied discipline is what the gone astray criminal needs to be reformed into a good citizen.

Except not many make it through their term of service, with the longer the time commuted/more serious the offense the more time you need to spend in the guard. However, acts of valor, being wounded by enemy combatants, and victory all deduct substantial time from your ledger. That's why they're gung ho shock troopers. The monumental risk and high probability of dying is worth it, because either you're dead or that much closer to freedom.

The officers and commissars should have a prison guard or warden look.

>> No.53927608

I know I'm a little late to the party, but I had an idea I wanted to contribute.

What if, instead of dying for stupid reasons, their philosophy was a little less stupid? Perhaps, as a highly-pragmatic agrarian society (as evidenced by their need to work on and cobble their own vehicles and weapons based on what they can innovate and what they need from random parts, like making their own farm equipment), they feel that death is an important part of life (as from the Imperial Cult). As such, they believe that one of the greatest and most glorious things that humanity, with its purity and goodness, can do, is die. Their blood cleanses the land. Dying on an alien world is akin to claiming it for Big Emps. Doing it while fighting his enemies? Icing on the fucking cake, baby! So instead of fearing death and shit, they treat it all like a celebration, hooting and hollering and making a big deal out of it. I fully embrace the redneck idea, by the way, it's awesome. Especially their version of racism. Can we make them hate some other folks, too? These guys ARE a little wholesome for my tastes. Like, the Mechanicum tries to murder them quietly when they can get away with it for all the tech-heresy.

Fuck, rednecks may have some flaws, but there are few folks I'd prefer to have at my back in a firefight. Loyal as shit, too.

>> No.53927901

Hehehe, I got to thinking about the commander of this unit. I gotta imagine that he presents himself as a slick, polished southern gentleman, well-schooled in all the bullshit of Imperial bullshitting with the bullshit nobility. But at heart, he's really just a country boy, happiest when he's in the shit with his men.

He hates the restrictions put on the unit, and actively encourages his boys to drink to excess and smoke space-meth and die for the Emperor. This doesn't go over well with the commanders with sticks up their posteriors, so there are quite a few other regiments that would be happy to accidentally shell their positions. However, their commander is too wily for that shit, too unpredictable. So they always manage to get out by the skin of their teeth... after losing a lot of men. When confronted by commissars, other officers, or random nobility about the misbehavior of his men, he generally charms them away with a grin and a wink about how boys will be boys, bribe them if that doesn't work, arrange for an accident if THAT doesn't work, get them re-assigned quickly if that doesn't work, lie and pretend that he's making changes if that doesn't work, argue bullshit regulations if that doesn't work, and maybe eventually get to the step of pretending to do something about it if constantly pressed, and only actually do stuff if he's back-against-the-wall forced to. Hehehe, it amuses me. I like this douchebag.

Their disdain for abhumans is particularly extreme. What kind of humans are on this planet, one of the existing or something new? Shark People?
