Ecclesian 141st "Firestorm" Recon Regiment

We tinkered with the Regiment creation rules from Only War, crafting our own for this campaign. The choices we took were:

Home World: Fortress World

Commanding Officer: Phlegmatic

Regiment Type: Reconnaissance Regiment

Doctrines: Hardened Fighters, Chameleoline

Total Cost: 12 points

We're still figuring out the Finishing Touches to fill in the narrative details, and we also need to pick Favoured Weapons. I'll update this blog post when we've got that solved.


The Ecclesian 141st "Firestorm" Recon Regiment


Characters belonging to the Ecclesian 141st gain the following advantages:


Characteristic Modifiers: +3 Ballistic Skill, +3 Perception, +2 Weapon Skill.


Starting Skills: Awareness, Common Lore (War) +10, Common Lore (Imperium), Common Lore (Imperial Guard) +10, Linguistics (Low Gothic).


Starting Talents: Combat Sense, Hatred (Servants of Chaos), Nerves of Steel OR Sprint, Street Fighting.


Bred For War: Ecclesians are loyal almost to a fault, and reluctant to disobey orders even with good reason, lacking personal initiative, and becoming inflexible as a result. An Ecclesian must pass a Challenging (+0) Willpower Test in order to go against the rules and regulations of the Imperial Guard. 


Hated Enemy: All Ecclesians have Hatred (Servants of Chaos). However, this hatred is often so strong as to overwhelm reason and sound judgement, and Ecclesian characters may be required, at the GM's discretion, to take an Ordinary (+10) Willpower Trest in order to restrain themselves from attacking without mercy when confronted with Chaos forces.


Wounds: Characters from this regiment generate starting Wounds normally.


Standard Regimental Kit: 1 M36 lasgun and 2 charge packs, 1 mono-knife, Best quality flak vest with Chameleoline coating, uniform, poor weather gear, rucksack, basic toolkit, mess kit and water canteen, blanket and sleep bag, rechargeable lamp-pack, dog tags, Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer, 2 weeks' rations, magnoculars, microbead, chrono, one Chimera APC per squad. 

Favoured Weapons: lasgun, heavy bolter

Commanding Officer: Colonel Pallias Valum

    I sent Mathey some narrative world design ideas (largely going off what you already picked).  Let me know if you want the notes too, happy to mail them.  If you hate them, protest loudly!

    might i suggest that your favored weapon be a longlas since you are a recon regiment.

    You need to add a Chameleoline Cloak Chameleonline to the Flak Vest Uniform for the Chameleoline Doctrine.
