Right. Let's do this - I'm in. Can I come back later and edit my post with a regiment name and number? I literally don't have any idea right now... or models. This is a spur of the moment thing I'm afraid!

 

Edit: Apologies for the delay (also terrible picture), but recovering and stripping down the model took a while. Here is Guardsman Han Einzig, Private of the 501st Swaibian Shock Troopers.

Well, I am in.  My question can I do two entries?  I am thinking of doing a vet sarge from a traitor guard using bits from the Vrak enforcers.  Or I could do a standard catachan vet based off of my space turok themed kill team.  Thoughts guys?

Ah, sign me up for the 475th Numerican Mechanized Infantry Regiment...I just ordered 28 (including alternate special weapons) Kasrkin...primed model photo below:

 

med_gallery_13203_9402_981606.jpg


Veteran Sergeant Fisker Kraal was born the illegitimate son of an itinerant preacher just two days before his mother's thirteenth birthday on the factory world Numerica Secundus. Having been unaware of the pregnancy and fearing the exposure of his crime, the priest arranged for Kraal's mother and grandparents to take employment in the household of a minor noble on Numerica Prime. While this did not give Fisker access to proper schooling, it did improve his diet and he grew strong in the clean (well, cleaner) air of the capital. The sons of the noble taught him to fight, and one of the daughters who had a crush on him taught him to read before the parents noticed her interest and shipped her off to boarding school. In the house library, Fisker educated himself in his free time.

At the age of majority, he successfully challenged for a place among the ten percent of each class at the Numerican Planetary Defense Academy, and finished third in his class in spite of the favoritism shown to less capable boys of more exalted lineage. Barred to the officer ranks by his low birth, he did qualify by virtue of graduation from the academy for the Night Watch, Numerica's elite palace guard. In the Night Watch, social background meant less than nothing. However, in the toughest unit on the planet, Kraal's exceptional ability was only average, and he spent ten years working his way up to corporal.

When he was 37, and still a corporal, the 475th "Stoneskin" Mechanized Infantry Regiment was levied from the planetary defense force to serve as the Numerica system's contribution to the Imperium's war to liberate the nearby Kastrell system from chaos cultists. The 475th consisted at that time of six companies of infantry and two companies of armor, including ninety chimeras, eighteen leman russes, eight demolishers, a platoon of four griffons, a platoon of four hydras, a scout platoon of nine sentinels, and 700 men.

The third company of the Night Watch (four squads), including Corporal Kraal, was attached to the 475th for this mission. In the climactic battle to capture the cult patriarch, Kraal's sergeant fell, and leadership of the first squad fell to him. By the laws of Numerica, his promotion to sergeant can only be provisional until confirmed by the privy council upon the regiment's return to Numerica.

Naturally, what the guard taketh, it giveth not back. At the conclusion of the Kastrell campaign, the 475th was retained in the Guard and sent to assist the Order of the Mourning Rose in fortifying its shrine world, Felicita V, against a prophesied xenos invasion. Unfortunately, the prophet died without receiving a vision telling him what xenos race was coming, or precisely when. Enroute to Felicita, the 475th was called to assist the Dark Angels' 5th Company in crushing a cult of genestealers in what has been recorded as the Rubicon Valley campaign. After two successful, but costly, campaigns, the depleted regiment arrived on Felicita V a shadow of its former self, fully half of the Night Watch company and two thirds of the regiment proper having fallen in battle. Now it consists of barely more than two companies with less than a company's worth of transports, three platoons of tanks, four sentinels, and two griffons. Still, they are a proud force of veterans whose combat experience will be put to good use fortifying the shrine world against the anticipated invasion while affording them some well-deserved recuperation.

 

And finished:

You can do more than one regiment and trooper, you will only get the one completion though (the highest ranking one) but there's nothing stopping you doing as many as you like smile.png
