Aumet Revolutionary Army

Raised from the first world that the Red Eyes brought into compliance, the Aumet Revolutionary Army matched the Red Eyes’ zealous devotion to the Great Crusade. Thoroughly indoctrinated by the Red Eyes’ propaganda, they willingly launch themselves at the enemy, throwing as many bodies as required into any combat. The other aspect that the Army is surprisingly skilled at is artillery, forming huge batteries that unleash constant barrages that make up for accuracy with volume. 

The regiment suffers from a suspicion of authority figures who have not served alongside the regiment previously, with insubordination if not under the command of anyone other than the Red Eyes being fairly common.

Thandrian Sons

Discovered late in the Great Crusade, the planet of Thandros was a wasteland, and had little to offer the Imperium except one resource - manpower. The inhabitants of Thandros were hardy, warlike and relatively advanced, producing a variant pattern of lasguns. When they joined the Imperial Army, they formed well-disciplined, attrition specialist units that relished being thrown into the harshest of campaigns.

They got their wish on their first campaign, taking part in the Third Rangdan Xenocide, where they proved their tenacity and iron will in bloody engagements. From then on, they were the first choice for any campaign where high casualties were predicted.

Kallastin Ogryn Auxilia

The Kallastin Ogryn Auxilia are a strange cohort, being viewed with suspicion and distrust by most other Imperial commanders. This is because of Jaacos Nürada’s unorthodox beliefs about the use of abhumans in the Imperial Army, and his even more unorthodox experiments. Despite the criticism of his contemporaries, Nürada could boast an almost unbroken string of military successes. It was these experiments and their successes that drew the Auxilia into the orbit of the Warriors of Peace.

The 163rd Cohort, the Cthonian Basilisks

The men of the Cthonian Basilisks are recognised as excellent tankers. Their campaigning alongside legions who require armoured support has led them to field considerable numbers of armoured vehicles, including a fair number of super-heavy tank companies to balance the legions’ weaknesses. 

 

The Cthonians favour armoured assaults or deep range mechanised raiding forces, with regiments of mechanised infantry or regular infantry serving as close support for their tanks. When available, Cthonian armoured formations will always comprise at least one super-heavy tank such as a Baneblade to support the standard Leman Russ Battle Tanks that comprise most of their armoured formations.

Cagean Drop Troops

Hailing from the world of Cagea, the Cagean Drop Troops are the Imperial Army’s elite drop troopers. Rare within the Imperial Army as a whole, Drop Infantry regiments are a potent strategic asset which many Generals are eager to obtain, and Cagea has become famous for them. A rapid resource force relying on large numbers of aircraft, they naturally became close allies of the Sky Reavers, serving alongside them for most of the latter period of the Great Crusade.

Marshal Adelar Tauber of the Thandrian Sons

 

Adelar Tauber started life as most people on Thandros did, barely having enough to survive. Being born into the underclasses, the only “career” option for Adelar was the army, as the Imperium is always in need of more recruits from Thandros. He joined up as soon as he was old enough, and like thousands of others he entered service into the Thandrian Sons. He served without real distinction in the regiment, his only real achievement being to stay alive through multiple campaigns. As such, he is one of the most experienced in the regiment, which is what led to his elevation to Marshall. Marshal Tauber is known for his dourness and strict discipline, the embodiment of the philosophy of the Thandrian Sons. Other commanders from different regiments view his willingness to engage in high casualty warfare distasteful, but his men expect nothing less.

Aschehunde
The Aschehunde are the Imperial Army regiments raised from worlds located within the Feuerreich. Their name, which translates to the Ash Hounds, is a reference to the predatory canines that inhabit Feuerstadt's wilderness. They are characterized by their close ties to the Obsidian Guard in addition to their incredible discipline, determination, and love of overwhelming firepower.

 

History

Their origins lay in the Feuerreich Crusade, as vast numbers of troops were needed to support the newly christened Obsidian Guard in their campaign. Over time the recruitment, training, equipment, and tactics of these scratch units were formalized into their present state.

 

Equipment

Each Ash Hound soldier is equipped in a manner similar to the Solar Auxilia, wearing heavy carapace armor and wielding a high powered lasrifle. They also carry several grenades, an entrenching tool, sword bayonet, cooking tools, and vox beads as well as their weekly allotment of rations. Officers will carry the rifle as a primary weapon and a chainsword for close combat.
