There was just a thread for rolling some Astartes, so lets make a regiment, eh?Someone roll for d10 for our classification
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>45429618'OO ARE WE, SAR?
>>45429772We're good ol' fashion regiment, fighting the emperor's foes across the galaxy!d100 for recruitment criteria
>>45429831an' 'oo does we takes in, sar?!
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>45429847
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>45429912>tfw you're the firstborn of your family
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>45429912Testing real quick
>>45429927Standard constription, the firstborn healthy and willing are all eligable d100 for homeworld!
>>45429949We'll use mine for the second
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>45429961
>>45429996Hiveworld! No fear of tight spaces for these boysd100 homeworld terrian
Rolled 82 (1d100)>>45430037

Rolled 15 (1d100)>>45430091
>>45430091well they're from a hiveworld, so does anything else even make sense?
>>45430105>infantry regimentThese boys are backbone of the imperium, fighting it out in the trenches and fields of the galaxy
>>45430149d10 for regiment specialization
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>45430178
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>45430178
>>45430191Mkay we'll take turnS sorry senpai
>>45430191Well its either drill and discipline or>>45430198Hive warfareWhich one would work best?
>>45430126>dead world>hive worldI see no contradiction.
>>45430238Well it was that dudes turn so he can choose
>>45430259A cold place to keep warm bodies.
>>45430259that's exactly what I'm sayingaren't, by definition, all hiveworlds polluted wastelands outside the hive?>>45430238>>45430269>>45430228these things are typically first come first serve
>>45430311Ya I guess im just too polite, I think hibe warfare is best, we'll be hive masters
>>45430311>>45430352Alright, Hive combat it is!after growing up in the crowded and cramped Hive they call home, they are experts of navigating and fighting in Hiveworldsd10 for loyalty d10 for loyalty
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>45430397
>>45430422>adherentWe hold fast to the Emperor's will, serving him until death!d100 for specialty equipment
Rolled 12 (1d100)>>45430439
>>45430439how the hell does an entire regiment operate within a hive, anyways?aren't they just a giant cowloon walled city?
>>45430462>War TrophiesWhat has been taken in battle will be used in battle for the Emperor!d100 for regiment creed
>>45430466They could be like a militant swat that operate all across the galaxy, being sepcialists in ultra-urbanwarfare
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>45430487
>>45430545>For the Homeworld!This regiment has utmost pride in their homeworld, and will try and prove their suppiority to all of the Imperiumd100 for regiment ally
>>45430516see, a swat operation makes sensebut an entire ARMY of swat?the whole point is that they're small and elitewhat is mass hyper-urban combat like?
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>45430574hope it's something stupid like orks
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>45430574
>>45430578Explosive volleys and forlorn hope assaults x100
>>45430590>>45430591>The Imperial Guard (of a specific world)Who would it be?Or we could reroll
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>45430614might as well keep it. Guardsman's best friend is his rifle, all else is secondary.
>>45430590>>45430591the dice gods have fucking spoken>>45430612whenever I think of hive worlds, I think of Dredd, and I just wonder what a military force fighting gangers or chaos cults or something within a hive would be like in a setting like that
>>45430628Alright, we'll take em'.>Imperial GuardOur Hive warfare experts often aid and are aided by other regiments when they need a Hiveworld cleansedd100 for regiment enemies
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>45430679I hope it's more imperial guard!
>>45430695>TyranidsLooks like we're a bunch of militarized pest exterminators!d100 for minor xenos species/faction
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>45430679Orks are always good enemies.>>45430649Well, urban warfare is like jungle warfare in that the distance of an engagement can be really fucking short. At the same time, the street block layout would lengthen engagement ranges , concentrate firing angles and allow improved mobility.
>>45430728that's for if we were to roll minor faction, no?
>>45430762Shit, my badAlright! These grunts need a name! Any ideas?
Rolled 9 (1d100)>>45430728>>45430649The main factors for urban combat would be numbers to swarm, explosives to root out all the enemies in cover, and armor to tank those explosives.
>>45430779Hive runners? Idk not versed in ig names
Rolled 94 (1d100)>>45430779Acuran xth (number above) void walkers. Their hive is an embedded shell of a spaceship around an airless moonscape of a planet, and the void walkers are each fitted with void suits to reflect it.
>>45430864This is very cool
>>45430864I can dig it!
>>45430864>>45430928Also can u post a void suit, never seen one
>>45430967Can't seem to find the pic I wanted. Picture this as the undersuit under those carapace shell with some guard flak sown over the chest and shoulder areas. The lenses are faded, there's no fancy electronics visible, and the entire thing is painted deep blue.
>>45430804So first wave to penetrate, then big guns to finish the job?
>>45431081nah. Big guns to stand off with the defender's big guns and tenderize the area, and infantry to mass assault the chokepoints.
>>45431046Im getting an idea but if anyone has a pic that would be cool, the crashed spaceship is a good reason for them to use scavenged weapons
>>45431162They could specialize in improvised weapons when they're held up inside hives with no outside supplies
1d10 for a color scheme
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>45431244
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>45431244
>>45431313hahahahawe ended up with quite the interesting color schemehttps://coolors.co/app/e56399-d3a588-ece2d0-7fd1b9-7a6563this was generated by going to this site and randomizing the color scheme 1d10 times, in this case, 10the bright colors could be fancy neon lights on arms and armor
>>45431377Man, I dig this so hard.
>>45431377hah, well. They do say void people are a bit off in the head. No matter! Our enemies shall fear the tastiest of the ice-cream colored Guardsmen.
>>45431377>neon lightsThey're like Japanese street punks/ bikers
>>45431438>>45431482>>45431503>>45431377we cyberpunk nowgoin' from hive to hive killin' bugs
>>45431537That looks sick as hell. Flashy Guardsmen fighting Dead Space tyranids in the light of the distant stars.
>>45431537That's exactly how I pictured themThey have to be armed with plasma smgs
just imagining anon snickering at his desk after the roll
>>45431685it was pretty funny
Let's get some fluff going on our urban cyberpunk swat exterminator regiment! Who's the general? What campaigns have they been on? What's their equipment/tactics like?
>>45431622and shotgunsdon't forget shotgunsso to review:Regiment Origin> Imperial Guard: A true regiment, drilled and competent in their service. Regiment Demographic> Firstborn: Chosen by right of being the eldest child. > Standard conscription: Average or above-average citizens recruited from all levels of society.

Regiment Friends> Imperial Guard (of a specific world)Regiment Enemies >Tyranidscolor scheme >>45431377since we're from a death world and "void world" is a distinct option, I don't think we should be from a place that's strictly airlesstoo polluted or irradiated to be outside, maybe, but not straight airless
>>45431825well they're known to take trophies, but they specialize in fighting tyranids, so I'm not sure how that translatesunless they're just keeping whatever they pilfer from genestealer cults
>>45431960>well they're known to take trophies, but they specialize in fighting tyranids, so I'm not sure how that translatesUsing Tyranid arms for melee weapons?
>>45432050that sounds like a terrible ideadon't those things, like, biodegrade into acid or generate more tyranid or something?
>>45431940>too polluted or irradiated to be outside, maybe, but not straight airlessI like this idea. Maybe they're better trained in Hive combat because their hive is total shit show, hard to survive becuase of the polution and lack of proper supplies
>>45432151so hong kong then?
>>45432108I dunno, man. They could be augmented so a normal human can at least hold the shit, maybe?
>>45432182But with even less space
they could be called the Hua Yuan 1st Exterminator Regimentor somethingI like Hua Yuan as the planet name because it retains Hong Kong's seemingly ironic nameHong Kong meaning "fragrant harbor" and Hua Yuan meaning "garden"could be a planet whose populace nuked itself into such a state that only hives are livable>>45432263>>45432108uniforms could look like this but tan rather than black and with pink and green lights ala >>45431537>>45431940
>>45432205I also don't think they'd work around a proper tyranid hivemindI think they'd just try to kill the wieldermaybe they just do some looting of their own on planets they show up to help
The last 'roll a chapter' included elf sodomy. I assume none of that heresy will be seen here.
>>45432473we're a bit too busy here for thathttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNeQ1B5zpOw
>>45432384I like the keep the loot from planets they help.Also the void born; on a massive ship / hive floating around a planet; thinking it could be a massive hulk that was then cleansed of the nids that had infested it. Now it's a massive hive / naval base; the planet below being strip mined for minerals to supply the shipyards/manufactory centers.
The trophies they take should be the good ole' fashion heads. Plus, sticking together carpace pieces for armor will provide more protection then a flak vest. So you can tell the veterans apart from the new guys by how bulky their armor is. You can tell veteran vehicle squads apart by all the heads they have mounted.
>>45432347>Hua Yuan 1st Exterminator Regimentgreat name, beautiful name! They are the first born sons of Hua Yuan, Hua Yuan Exterminator reigment!Maybe not nuked, but the planet wasn't too rich in resources to begin with, and they just used up the planet to a near husk-like state. So the main Hive is super big because of fast expansion, but no longer has enough to support itself, so is slowly decaying?
>>45432578>>45432384Why not combine these two? They just loot whatever isn't destroyed in the conflict and put it to use.
>>45432619Yeah I like the use of bug carapace as armor; also helps them infiltrate as they start to look more and more niddy as they become veterans
>>45432551we aren't voidborn ourselves, though I like the idea of being from a ship that crashed into the planetmaybe a mining ship that crashed and was abandoned that developed into a hive>>45432584pic related is Yuán and can go on the shoulder of every unit in the regiment>>45432578>>45432619I really really like that ideathe units slowly getting more and more cobbled together with time and experience only fits the punk motif
>>45432708I was thinking it as I was thinking they could be specialists in attacking hive ships in (more than likely suicidal attacks) on hive ships so that planets don't get spored and seeded. The conditions of the hive ships being like organic hives; the hulk that they live on having been semi converted by the nids during their stay they have familiarity with the way in which the hive ships are designed / organised.
>>45432578so cyberpunk neon cops with elite units covered in predator-style trophies?
>>45432832Sounds badass enough to me! Also, I'm thinking they're close hive city specialist because back home their hives are in a constant state of was for the few mains resources left on the planet. These guys are the only ones jaded and crazy enough to face nids' in close quarters and win.
>>45432951What if instead of wars, the hives were all heavily divided into gangs with near constant gang conflict/conflict with the pdf, so they're used to fighting in an urban setting, and probably have been doing it since a young age?
>>45433005Hey! Yeah, that works! Explains where they got their habit of nicking stuff from the enemy to use! They've been doin' it since they was kids!
>>45433054the mining bit might explain the cyberpunk aesthetic as wellmining corps became the de-facto governmentthe planet's atmosphere is partially unlivable because of it's naturally high content of neon
>>45433231>>45433054>>45433005>>45432708Are we set on the planet name Hua Yaun?
>>45433334yespronounced "hwa YOO-en"
Op here, you guys are awesome, this thread is awesome. I'm gonna hit the sack, and I was wondering if someone could archive this?
>>45433572if the thread doesn't get archived, I'm still archiving all the informationmay make a pastebin alongside some other things made in the pastlike this http://pastebin.com/6Uf5yNq9
so anyone want to do an official sounding writeup of what we have so far?
>>45433231This is the best idea, manIt makes sense why their would be neon lights everywhere
>>45434013so the citizenry of Hua Yaun are all wearing oxygen masks or have filtration cybernetics or, at the very bottom, simple cloth or paper masks due to the poisonous atmosphere
>>45434166>>45434013fun fact:because of the high neon content of the atmosphere, lightning strikes would be extremely bright and orange
>>45430466Depends on the hive. They can take many forms.
>>45434314well this is our hivebut, you know, much much bigger
I'm thinking that the orbiting space hulk is probably still not totally explored; teams go in to recover lot gear and arcotek as who knows how long some of the vessels and the debris that has collected around the ships; add in some spice for rpgibg on this desolate land. Would also explain away any of your choices in weapons yeah squadron 89 salvaged that plasma rifle 100 years ago on a surveying mission; been part of the platoon ever since; even after the 89ers got munched at the battle of midway to repel hive fleet behemoth good thing; ol jimbo snatched it up as we scorched those damn lobsters back into there holes.
>>45434652The citizens of Hua Yaun are the descendants of a giant mining vessel that crashed into the planet some centuries ago. The ship's officers quickly established themselves as a nobility of sorts as equipment used to survive the void was refurbished to survive in an environment hostile to humans. When contact was eventually reestablished with the larger Imperium, the involuntary settlers, they quickly established themselves as a major provider of the neon that was abundant in the planet's atmosphere.Living entirely in retrofitted ship wreckage, the planet's population has exploded at such a rate that conditions are considered cramped even among some hivers. As is typical of most hive worlds, a wealthy and powerful noble class lords over a massive and squalid lower class. Warfare between countless gangs plagues the makeshift city constantly and the local nobility funds a sizable PDF to keep themselves and their assets safe.
>>45436312So, are these guys meant to be the pdf, or was there a tyranid attack in a nearby system and the Inperium ordered a regiment or something
>>45431960what about the weapons and armored limousines of genestealer cults?
>>45437612>what about the weapons and armored limousines of genestealer cults?Now I'm picturing a street war between a genestealer cult-gang called "the heretics" and an astartes themed gang called "emperor's children" or something But yeah, that fits in with the idea that these guys appropriate what they earn from battle
Yeoh Hong is the current Captain-General for the exterminators. He was born into the lower depths of Hua Yaun as an orphan, where he quickly had to develop a keen set of survival skills and premonition in order to survive in the inhospitable environment. Joining a local gang at a young age, Yeon proved to be ruthless and cruel, eventually become the head of his outfit. After a failed raid on a rival compound, his gang was wiped out, leaving him to join the pdf as a means to escape the lower Hive. The skills he learned in his youth translated into a sense for combat lacking in the rest of the corrupted and lazy force. After performing many successful raids, including a cultist sect, he became a captain, where he employed his knowledge of street gangs to successfully combat them. Rising further through the ranks, it was a clear choice who should lead the newly formed regiment.
The dull red battle light of the command post only made the Field Marshalls Praetorian tunic appear a deeper red, like that of blood. "Captain General Hong" he bellowed in high gothic " the Huan Yuan 1st will take the rebel fortification by night fall. The Emperor wills it!" Rubbing his exhausted face Captian General Hong replied "Sir without armored support I will loose many men". "You Hivescum where brought in as urban combat Specialists, you will deliver the objective to me with or without armored support, causalities be damned!
>>45438023I'm digging it
>>45437808>>45438023where on his uniform is his glowing pink and green neon lights?
Hua Yuan 1st Exterminator regiment -Sergeant Rommanda's log Fire really is a divine gift from The Emperor! The bugs in this Saints damned city caught on to our little tactic of drawing the big bugs off down side alleys to smear'em with out dealing with the main group. We would have taken some rather heavy losses if the major hadn't called in a favor from one of the other regiments we assisted, and got us a shipment of Hellhounds. Let me tell you, there ain't nothin better then waken up to the smell of crispy nids'!
Given the amount of neon lights that seem to be about, the dead world, the one big hive everyone lives in and the assault by fuck huge monstrous creatures from Beyond Where We Know I can't help but think of the hive this regiment is from as being The Last Redoubt from The Night Lands. Or at least something like it.
Maybe too SWAT/Operator?
>>45439037Could use more cyberpunk, but that's badass man, I don't think you need to change it
Alright, so these guys are in the 41st millennium. What conflicts have they been in? What have they done since they're creation? Any crusades?
>>45439842The scouring of the moon system of Daethons Reach.The main industrial and commercial hub was a hive among hives that engulfed the entire moon upon which it was built. One the old centers of trade with a history stretching back to the early days of the First Empire.Population in the low trillions stacked atop one another like miles tall decks of cards. An entire sectors worth of trade going in and out without rest or mercy. It was the beating heart unimaginable light years.Then suddenly gene-stealers, gene-stealers everywhere in the tens of millions. By the time help arrived everything was burning, the hives, the ships in orbit the skies even the fabric of space and time as psykers started throwing mind bullets around.And into this shit the Void Walkers, among many others, descended. They bolstered the broken PDF and were instantly at home in the tangled multistory hive mazes that made conventional maps cry. The unbreathable, toxic smog outside was no concern to them with their home open to near vacuum.By the end of the campaign the chapter was whittled down to 5% of its origional number of ~10,000. The remnants were so highly valued for their badassery that the newly appointed governor put in a requisition for them to stay and train the next generation of the PDF. It was deemed acceptable by the imperial authorities and so they remained. Also it would not have been economically sensible to send them home with so low numbers.The gene-stealer beacon was cut off in time and no hive fleet arrived. Dark rumors suggest that inquisition agents stayed behind to see if all the 'stealers were got and track any that got away.The Regiment was refounded a few months later.
>>45439842I'm guessing they don't operate that far from their home system if they can avoid it. Probably a lot of drop stuff directly into/on to the Hive
>>45439037That shits dope
Is there a 1d4chan page for this regiment yet? Shit sounds fucking awesome
>rolling up my own 80s-cyberpunk-theme regiment>"oh hey regiment creation">another cyberpunk regimentWell, nice to see my idea wasn't that terrible after all. What you guys have here looks breddy good.
>>45441939I'll give it a shot, but I've never made one before
>>45442128Hey man, if you want to throw out what you think fits, or just tell us about it, go for it
>>45442404All I've officially written up so far on mine is a little bit about the homeworld. I started on it pretty late last night and didn't write too much. But I don't think it really fits for what you guys have.>[__] is a frozen-over industrial world, located in the Reductus sector of Segmentum Tempestus. [__] is primarily known for its great deposits of adamantine far below the surface. The climate of [__] is unlivable for humans; on an ideal day, the temperature hardly rises above -50 C, and most of the surface is an uninhabited snow-desert. The few bastions of civilization on the surface are the three sealed "spires" built around the equator, resembling a scaled-down hive; the vast majority of [__]'s population lives underground in a massive network of hives, processing facilities, and warehouses.
>>45430578they're a force for occupations
>>45442465Cool none the less
>>45438527>The Last RedoubtShit's cashI was thinking of Dredd+Raid+Starship Troopers
Tryed to get them a bit more cyberpunk plus two extra helmets and a knife made of a hormagaunt's talon
>>45443945I love it, it gives off the specialist vibe while still looking like something a army could be equiped with. Great stuff!
Hey guys, we need a Regiment motto. Any ideas?
>>45444125How about>Effectus Ordinis ImperatorMeans Enforcement. Order. Emperor
>>45444125Nullus est instar domus (There is no place like home).
Is there more than one hive on their homeworld or is it just one big hive?
>>45445163Sounds to me like it's just one, supermassive hive that was made bigger and more broken by the ship that crashed into it.Probably airless dead wasteland around the rest of the planet... What if it were a moon? The moon itself has valuable resources but is uninhabitable and orbits a gas giant. There's a tidy explanation for why the whole thing is dead, there's simply too little atmosphere. The original hive could be built on-top of a mining pit that goes down kilometers into the surface of hte planet. Gradually as more and more people came a society formed and the hive grew until people started actually dwelling in the upper sections of the mine, creating a nightmare urban sprawl. Then, for extra grimdark the mine dried up and the authorities abandoned it or something leaving the populace to sort its' own shit out. That way the guard regiment could actually be the de-facto police force on the planet as well
>>45445419I like the idea
>>45445419I like the idea of that.A moon of a gas giant out in the far orbits where the sun is just another speck in the cold black sky. It would have an atmosphere if the temperature ever got above bras monkey levels of cold.The hive is located at the bottom of a naturally formed super canyon at the equator. It was then further deepened by human activity.The moon is geologically dead and has been for a long time. The deepest levels of the hive are at the level where the world is still warm in the middle.It's a big maze down there and nobody has a complete or up to date map.It is said by some of the natives that the oldest parts of the hive are pre-Imperial and they're probably right.
>>45445877Add to that the fact that approx 1/2 the hive was destroyed or otherwise compromised by a Voidship crashing into it and the survivors simply built around and incorporated the wreck into the hive itself. Shit this place is terrifying, a claustrophobic's worst fucking nightmare on LSD with all the neon and cyberpunk stuff
>>45445976It was only half of the surface hive.Vast majority of hive was fine from a structural stand point.Surface Hive used for in and out of bulk cargo. A ship dropping on to it killed 0.75 billion including those that died later from radiation, fire and vacuum exposure as well as the more normal injuries one would expect to sustain after having a space ship land on your house.A further 2.4 billion died over the next half a standard year as a result of supply interruption. Starvation and shit going wrong due to mechanical failure in an artificial environment and such.A further 3 billion died over the next few years due to a virulent flu outbreak that started among a weakened population.On the whole it wasn't that big of a deal for the hive as a whole. Te hive recovered and it was forgotten about within 10 years except asa curiosity of why most of the Hive-cap-town is made of old star ship parts.
>>45443945Played with it a little bit, liking the concept but I have no idea how to work with those colours.
Do we have an update on the 1d4chan page? Do we actually have a place to save this?>>45446459Pink? I mean... I don't like pink on armour as a general rule to be fair but still... Otherwise it looks awesome
>>45446491Wanted to use all the colours anon rolled earlier. I kinda figured it might work if it was a neon pink and used for highly visible contact points so other members of the regiment can be identified easily. Kinda like the blue helmets of UN peacekeepers.
>>45446459Armour and cloth looks nice, maybe keep the pink for the neon.I'll give it a try in a moment
>>45446584Fair enough, maybe the brighter colours are just lights or neon tubes? A darker armour with bright neon stuff in the blue and neon would look rad
>>45446459That is fucking sweet.
>>45446584>>45446491I like the pink, the color set up you have now looks pretty good to me
>>45446459I feel like the brighter colors should just be thin accents. Like neon tubes or whatever, except ON the armor.
>>45432545>PerturbatorMah man. Kinda worried the next Synthwave show will look like a neckbeard meet and greet, judging drom the amount of times I see it popping up in /tg/. But atleast it's amazing music, check out Carpenter Brut, Flashworx, GosT and whole phelotara as well, cyberpunk-anons.Oh and this has to be my favourite regiment ever
>>45446459That pink is an abomination.Either make it fit or drop it... this is /tg/ quality control.
>>45446459The pink is the best part of this 90s-looking mother fucker, ignore the neetbeards with no taste.
>>45446908>Carpenter Brut, Flashworx, GosTThanks for making me a burnt out punk who hates the man, anon. Its some good stuff>Oh and this has to be my favorite regiment evershucks
>>45447136Np. YouTube is your friend when it comes to Synthwave. You can find all kinds of great stuff from Dan Terminus to Miami Nights 1984 in a single night of clicking on Related videos and "retro" channels.I'm kinda torn about the pink. At the same time, it really fits the theme and 90's feel, but then at the same time a bit too much of /k/ommando. Maybe different sets for parade/field duty?And sorry bout the typos. I suck at typing with my tablet.
>>45447338>Different colours for field/parade dutyI could get on-board with this. it's a good compromise
>>45447377Agreed, although at first i didn't like the pink helmet, now that i think about it, it could be really fun if we keep it dark enough and in case of doubt they can always stick one of these
I only really meant it as a jumping off point, anons. Do feel free to do other takes. I just took anon's original sketch and did the colours as a multipy layer on top.
>>45447377Agreed.>>45447452If you're fighting on a neon hellhole cyberpunk landscape then fluorescent pink could suffice for camo, right?
>>45447452On-board.Would love to do my take on it, but again, tablet.
>>45447485>Here's a thoughtA formal uniform that consists of bright neon coloured cloth (essentially gay neon mordians) and then a combat gear that has a black/dark navy-blue base covered in patterns of neon colours. Each different regiment or company could have their own colour/colours all culminating in Bright neon glowing rank insignias
>>45447549>patterns of neon colors/r/ pink/green version of 90s HKS drag car pattern
>>45447607Fuck yeah. Exactly like the patterns on this picture except they glow too
>>45447607Holy shit, thats great.
>>45447607Maybe something like this?
>>45447881YES YES YES YES YES
>>45447338>pretty pink parade police
This thread is bad and you should feel bad.Just play shadowrun already.
>>45447881I fucking cameMy only suggestion would be to limit the pattern to only a few of the largest panels + helmet so it doesn't get too hilariously ridiculous
>>45447941We roller for this, we didn't set out with this in mind
>>45447941HA! JOKE'S ON YOU I ALREADY DO!Oh also blatant bait
>>45447881and make the cloth under armor that cream color
>>45447941When will people learn that there's NOTHING that /tg/ won't try and infuse with 40k?
>>45447881Pure, unfiltered, sex.
>>45448299>nothing that /tg/ Won't put into 40kfixed that one for you
>>45448299>cyberpunk belongs to shadowrun
>>45448299It's a big ole universe out there, room for lotsa stuff.
>>45447881Fantastic. It looks really 90s cyberpunk while also looking reasonably 40k-ish
>>45448321>>45448438>>45448460And that's why I love /tg/ and 40k.But to the topic at hand, any ideas for regimental colours/flag?
>>45448562well we have the colorsdon't know about a flag other than the one symbol we have
>>45448562Regimental colours should be different for each regiment. For example looking at >>45447881 the 1st regiment could be green/purple/pink. In general the colours should be 2/3 neon colours on a dull black or dark grey background based on what we have and all agree looks awesome
>>45448631well the thread is generating a guardsmen REGIMENT so I figured we should only focus on the oneThe 1st Exterminators are the planet's one and only Regiment that they send offworld to help in hive warefare, clearing space hulks, and bug huntingthe planet probably has a pretty sizable but separate PDF
>>45448619>>45448631Colours as in flag/standard.I was thinkinf of our symbol in middle of the flag, carried by aquila. Maybe a cross/union jack kinda thing going on the background with our colour theme, on a dark blue base?
>>45448694I thought the whole point was that we were the PDF in addition to a small force of specialists because we fought for/died for this planet and hive
>>45448699we also have the flag of hong kong to consider, since that's one of our base reference pointscould be something with the aquila in the corner and the 园 set in the middle
Might as well make the flag actually a Coogi sweater
>>45448829fff meant to be directed at >>45448738
>>45448738This actually made me giggle.>>45448803But yeah, this makes sense, our regiment being proud of our world/regiment/hive and all.
>>45448803You could put the Aquila in front or behind the lotus
>>45448803Just make the flower one more neon/dark and you got a flag, throw the insignia in the middle and bamMaybe cyan background and black flower would work
>>45449402I'm feeling a charcoal grey, not the brown.
>>45449402if you're including the green in the armor itself, I don't think the pants need to be that colorjust have the cloth bits be that uniform cream and we may be good>>45449144>>45449292mspaint ass sketch ideatext says "From the void Into the Garden we Fell"I wanted to have the garden symbol be in the middle of the text
>>45449417For the whole armor or just for a particular part?>>45449519I can switch quickly the color of the pants so no problem
>>45449519That's vaporwave as fuckBut it's great
>>45449519This is fucking excellent.What does the text say?
>>45449553read the post>>45449540I think you should stick to the original color scheme as much as possible, which you've done a pretty good job doing
>>45449583>Read the post
>>45449519>>45449402I like the belts being the cream, and all the clothes being blue.
holy shit, i love this concept. keep going guys
>>45449787Looking really good.By the way, i'll be hitting the sack really soon so if this thread is still around in the moring i'll try to do some switches like some of the anons commented to see which one is more liked.
>>45449826Op here, I dunno, if this one goes under, do you think it'd be worthwhile for a second thread?
small change>>45449826thanks so much for the art, manit's so nice to have someone around doing this without having to drop into the drawthread and begis there any way I can contact you to do some art for some of the other things /tg/ has generated?
>>45449856I have an imgur gallery and a Tumblr. but i do admit i'm not that active in the imgur part.https://www.tumblr.com/blog/mencalinamhttp://helmetanon.imgur.com/
>>45449851Not that sure, nonetheless if this one hits the limit and there's still parts that need to be worked on i see no problem to do another thread to finish them.
>>45450031>>45449851normally I don't like to do that sort of thing but people seem interested and like they're working on things, so I say go aheadI'm still working on writing up an official sounding thing on the regiment >>45436312was 1/2 to 1/4 of it
>>45449402This is bretty gud, but I'd try reversing the pants/shirt colors. So beige pants, teal sleeves.
>>45444328I like this one a lot
I'd like to imagine these guys' act like a punch of gang members, real defensive and territorial around other regiments
>>45450865I like to think the regiment they export has an almost Helghast-esque mentalitythey're a bit bitter at having been abandoned and proud to have survived despite itthe fact that they all wear neon lights and have to wear oxygen masks doesn't help
>>45450911Can they still be crude and rude please?
>>45451484https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ob02JOLOMtQNot quite as sweary as I'd like, but not bad, and now I can't not hear them with that accent.
>>45451484Give me a break
>>45451708Oh crap. Meant to reply to >>45450911, evidently.
>>45451484of coursemost likely if you are in the Exterminators, you're either ex PDF or an ex ganger
The real question is do we use Neon rim motorbikes?
Working on a non-combat uniform/dress uniform. Any suggestions?
>>45451859Black leather pants, black leather jackets with a neon company insignia on the back, and berets.
>>45451859Officewear to fit with the whole Yakuza hong kong type theme
>>45451859this with oxygen filters and fancy pink and green neon lights>>45431377color scheme>>45432708>>45449856symbolsbing bang boom
>>45451859I thought that's what the neon green and pink full one from earlier was? Or was that just proof of concept?
>>45451955it's all still pretty conceptual right now
>>45431377I get we rolled for this, but the brown should really be a dark grey or something. It makes them look too much like tacky couches and not enough like cyberpunk lazer cops.
>>45451947>>45451931>>45451916>>45451910Ill see what I cant do with these, thanks!
>>45452024consider for a moment that >>45432182isn't too far from our color schemewhat appears to be black there could very easily just be a color-shifted dark brown
>>45452180But those guys aren't wearing beige, they're wearing white and standing in a yellow/orange light.
>>45452234still looks nice is my point
>>45451947>>45451931>>45451916>>45451910>>45451859Alright guys here's what I got. Sorry about the pencil/sketchiness, I dont have the skill or the knowledge on how to color. Also, if its not 40k-y enough, let me knowNote that I dont mean this as their combat uniform, but as a dress/non combat/support uniform of some kind
>>45452602Niceon another note what do we think of commissars?
>>45452620If we come up with a design/concept, I can try my had a drawing one
>>45452602this looks really good dude, with more color this would be perfect
>>45452602Actually pretty fucking cool. Based drawfag.I think that's basically perfect considering the aesthetic at hand in the rest of what's been drawn. The face mask could stand to be a bit more mechanical, but still works like this as a sort of Hong Kong casual look.
>>45452709That would be fucking radical if someone colored it like >>45446459 anon did
>>45452633I meant what do we think about themlike are we full Catachan or not?
>>45452852I think the regiment should be pretty well divided into different squads and companies and all that good stuff. The size of each has to be relatively small, since you can't rely on tons of support in a Hiveworld
Yo, can someone throw this up on the archive? It'll help me sleep better knowing this won't all disappear
>>45452602could use a skull or two since it's 40kmaybe a sci-fi panel thingy
Really? Glowing 80s cyberpunk gangers turned alien hunting cops, and no one has mentioned combat drugs? These guys should be al over some kind of space cocaine.
Anons I need to sleep now. Do we have either a 1d4chan page or an archive of this thread??
>>45453624I don't know how to do either, but I'll leave the thread open and if nobody does it before tomorrow morning/before thread dies, I'll ask on /tg/ until someone explains how to do those things and then I'll do it. Worst case scenario, thread dies and we have to rely on this, which seems to have saved all the imageshttp://archive.is/aAoHU
>>45453624That's what I'm worried about too
>>45453385This is a pretty good idea if it gets fleshed out more
>>45454152>If one is to inspect the Tyranid trophies of an Exterminator, a rare thing as they tend to be quite protective of them, they would find that every single one has a uniform hole near the base. This whole is generally used for mounting, but is actually created for an entirely different purpose. The extraction of the Tyranids adrenal glands. The Exterminators are known to produce a wide variety of combat and leisure drugs from the chemicals that can be found therein. Usually taking the form of an iridescent and fine powder, every Exterminator has a unique ritual involving their consumption. Some smoke it, others snort it, a good number inject it, some eat it or mix it with recaf like a sweetner, and some still have figured how to huff it as an aerosol. In any form of administration the combat variet of the Tyranid sourced drugs invariablely increase reaction time, aggression, and even enhanced unit cohesion among those Exterminators who do it as a group. It's withdrawal symptoms are, unfortunately, punishing. Ranging from violent seizures, severe narcolepsy, or even hallucinations of being a Tyranid part of the Hivemind have been reported. This, combined with it's unusual sourcing and the insular nature of the Exterminators has meant the glittering Tyranid Dust has not spread beyond the Exterminators.
>>45454372I like itit combines the "war trophy" concept with the cyberpunk feel we're going for>>45454152>>45453708>>45453624if you guys want I can make a new thread
>>45454779that being said, we're about 50 posts from bump limit still
Could we do something like this again but with, say, the Mechanicus?
I'm new to the thread but liking this, do y'al want some writefaggotry?
>>45455016of coursethat's what we're all here for is brainstorming, drawfagging and writefagging
Do you guys think we can write some stuff about them encountering and figihter another freshly made /tg/ creationhttps://1d4chan.org/wiki/Spores_of_Madness
>>45452602I like it. It fits for the troopers and veterans of the regiment. Maybe the officers would wear some really long coats alongside the tie to give that old-times mafia look.
>>45456007>old-times mafia lookWe needy las tommyguns!
>>45456046Good thing i have one around to use as a base. I'll try to do more sketches
>>45456007>>45456046>>45456414>old-times mafia look>las tommygunsI feel like we're getting away from the cyberpunk theme here, guysthat could probably be saved for a different regiment
>>45456453Well, the las tommy could be used as a trophy of a named officer.
>>45456472Perhaps a trophy weaon for the officers could be a homebrew weapon I made for a dark heresy character. It's basicly a hot shot laspistol that looks like a revolver. But instead of ammo they out inside the spinning barrel thinigy, it's cooling shells instead that prevents the hot shot laspistol from overheatingFor those who are curious the weapon is called the "Lexus pattern las revolver" The STC fragment for it was found by an inquisitorial warband on a spacehulk led by an Inquistor called Lexus.
>>45452620For commissary I think we should go with the usual trenchcoat, except replace the red and gold lining/trim with bright neon colours. Oh and also the face mask
>>45456453Stop. we already had a cool team with the neon-commandos.
>>45456663"I love the powerfist, it's so bad."
>>45456663I love you drawfag
>>45456663what do the tassle thingies say?
>>45456663>>454572321st Officer Bad certainly lives up to his namelike, the cool kind of bad though
Do we have a 1d4chan page up and running yet?
>>45455684>Well that, and the fact Captain Boil Beard thinks Abby is one of the best Nurgle worshippers around as he has done NOTHING in 10,000 years but maintain the staus quo.kek. Oh, /tg/. Why is all of your group-sourced OC so good?
what are these Guy's relation to the rest of the imperium?
>>45457966Pretty distant i would think. They mostly stick to their homeworld as a police force after the initial fighting there and rarely loan out companies as specialized forces and advisors. The mine was abandoned by the imperium and all official forces withdrew so the Exterminators have their hands full with chaos cultists, gangs, civil unrest and any potential remnants of the genestealers
>>45457993I feel like this is generally reasonable, but the 1st presumably goes off planet whenever their unique expertise is needed; removing the remnants of Tyranid vanguard fleets from hive cities and urban areas. We never really discussed whether they work with Commissars effectively (someone asked about it earlier ITT) but either way I'd expect that they're occasionally sought out for REMOVE BUGS duty.
>>45458049We only have 1 regiment. We decided earlier that we only have a 1st regiment. So I think that we have the 1st just in general and we lend individual companies or platoons out to other forces as specialists like you said
>>45458076>We decided earlier that we only have a 1st regimentWhoops, I guess I missed that part. Fucking autoupdate.But then yeah, >end individual companies or platoons out to other forces as specialistsseems reasonablealso we're pretty close to the bump limit, what do?
>>45458107If we hit the bump limit and start to fall then we make a new thread. I don't think there's enough interest to justify a new thread at the moment. I'm not sure if this is archived yet though
>>45458107Make a new thread
>>45458124>>45458130I think there's enough interest to warrant a new thread when this one dies
>>45458217Dude this is freaking fantastic looking. Are you the artist that drew this as well?
>>45458247Nope, that seems much better than my own.If anyone remembers the threads of a homebrew faction for a freeform roleplaying forum that had rules to make your own faction dependant of the number of users you had in such group to calculate its force. So a group of fa/tg/uys decided to make the Big Bad Evil Empire and i tagged along drawing footsoldiers and knights for them.
>>45458217I'm loving it guy. Only comment is maybe switch the brown with the cyan/blue on the second guy
>>45458441I dunno anon. the Brown looks better and more cohesive.>>45458217I think you either have to go all brown or all blue on the cloth. having it two different colours looks odd
>>45458462>>45458441I prepared this other version in case of doubt
>>45458808Yeah the cloth looks better when it's all the same colour
>>45458808I liked the other set up better tee bee h
>>45458217>>45458808Not to rain on your parade but where did the neon-trippy-cyberpunk-tron part go?
>>45458894All the little pink neon tubes on the armor? The rank insignias in neon pink? The lenses of the goggles and eyes?
>>45458937It just doesn't have high enough contrast with the brown/beige I feel. Kinda blends in with the regular camo.
>>45458937I dunno, It's a bit too tame for my tastesTo each his own I guess
>>45458966>>45458987Well the cloth could be a different colour. my point was just that it looked silly when it was two different ones
>>45458217>>45458808What if we use the cyan for all of it instead of light brown? I tried doing it in MS Paint (kek) but obviously that didn't work. Based drawfag try it please.
>>45459319I'll give it a run in half an hour
>>45459001There's always blacklight paint and ink. It looks normal in daylight, but shines fluorescently under UVhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blacklight_paintThat way you could have regular-ish looking fatigues that don't annoy the commisariat but pop into neon cyberpunk nightmare tribal patterns in hive-country. As a side note, the Administratum generally hates it when non-Garrison worlds hold onto their IG regiments (hence PDFs). Most deliberately move them as far away from the homeworld as is feasible so that they don't get too attached to their homeworld rather than doing their duty for the wider Imperium, and IG regiments are usually part of the Imperial tithe. If you wanted a higher than normal amount of IG on the planet, perhaps you could have the PDF constantly cycling into the Guard proper rather than being a separate force - people are recruited into the PDF, train, when the regiments are called up the PDF are put forward first before the rest of the population pool.
>>45458808The pants and arms may look good with a green stripe like >>45451947
I'm not sure if someone has already said but do we have a reason for the neon?if I can make a suggestion I would say something like the neon making friendly fire in urban combat less likely and makes identification in dark infested hives easier
>>45460150Could you fix that part? it's really bothering me
>>45460177Sorry, easy to miss mistakes sometimes.
>>45460150Thanks. I strongly prefer this version. I imagine there's going to be some disagreement over that but it fits the original rolled colors in a more unique way imo
>>45460222I don't really mind cyan fatigues, but i do admit i like more the tan clothes.Anyways, the original .sai file i made and the one i'm working on has both kinds so i can switch them at pleasure.
>>45460210Those look pretty good anon. I agree that the cyan does look way better than the brown, but I still stand by my "the cloth must all be the same colour".... so this version looks awesome. How are doing on a page?
How does this regiment interact with others? Is it buddy buddy? Is it 'Xenophobic' ? DO you think any other regiments or Military command personell have any outstanding grudges against our Boys in Blue and Pink?
>>45462021They should speak Finnish or something equally incomprehensible.
New thread when
In response to >>45447925WOuld it be possible to have our Boys using Multicolored Smoke-bombs and Paint bombs in combat to allow their colors to fit in off planet?I'm thinnking that they are so used to choked enviorments that they fight in the smoke like others fight in the open air, and perhaps use 'Paint shells' in bassalisks to blanket an area they are to guard in their colors, to disorent, draw attention and camouflage If that could work?
>>45462105Also we're heavily based on Hong Kong so I'm pretty sure we speak a language that is at least similar to mandarin or Cantonese
>>45462182Chinese is plenty Incomprehensible. I take it we're basing more off modern/cyber punk Capitilist china rather than the People's Army? Will we integrate more ancient Chinese style like the Officer?
>>45447925IIRC, those guys got disbanded for being too hardcore.
>>45462209Capitalist China would be better.
>>45462225They look too hardcore for a socialist shithole like Bolivia. They'd make good right-wing death squads though.>>45462166I actually like this idea. When fighting 'nids it doesn't really matter that they're neon-colored anyway. But when fighting disgusting heretic scum, they could do this. For bonus points they could throw quasi-dico lights into places to disorient people, but maybe that's getting too Slaaneshi?
>>45462182I'm saying half Chinese half Latin
>>45462209Modern Style. Again essentially like hong kong. An urban capitalist environment with a huge population density. Just with Cyberpunk and Grimdark elements added to that fun mix
>>45462182Let's fluff out some languages, since it's a hive world not every one speaks the same.Voidtounge: Any off world languageSeimun: This language is spoken in the lower parts of the Hive city "Che Hien" (Just making up asian sounding names here).Freigterus: This small language is spoken by the "freighters" who work on giant trains (like the ones from the space marine game) as they ship goods from the various hives around the planet.Kung Primarus: This is mostly a written language that is understood by the majority of the population. Just felt like I needed to flesh out the planet a bit more. Please just ignore this post if this doesn't fit the fluff of the planet and the regiment
>>45462264We don't need Latin for our native tongue. High Gothic is anglicised (bastardized) latin anyway so everyone with any official capacity speaks that>>45462324I'm really liking this. Freigterus needs a better name though, plus there's only 1 hive
>>45462324Nah man, it's great. After all the Exterminators are supposed to be proud of their homeworld so its normal to flesh out their world.
>>45462324>SeimunIs this pronounced "say mun" or "semen"Serious question
>>45462379>say munThat's what I had in mind
>>45462341But its a really big hive.Population at half a trillion type big.And its a really old hive. Pre-Imperium type old.Plenty of time for distinct cultures to have evolved.
>>45462341>>45462324There can still be trains but they'd be going to shitty underground mines or something, right? Only having one city, which is a crashed ship/based around a crashed ship, doesn't mean you're stuck there forever even if the outside world is a death planet. Presumably they have some means of industry.>>45462379>>45462389lel
>>45462379That's one of the main jokes voidborn use at the backs of the Hua Yuan.
>>45462412The whole point was that the world is completely airless. It's essentially an atmosphereless moon with a single mining base that had a city on-top of it
Is someone good with photoshop/gimp/MS-paint? I had an idea that we can make a map of the planet so we can place various locations. And in turn make the planet feel more "alive" irony .
>>45462455I understand that, I was trying to imply underground trains though. Mines go up and down and out and diagonally and shit. Anon can still have his trains m8.Like a death world has to have some means of income. Presumably one single mine that goes straight down can't provide for a gigantic fuckhuge version of Cowloon.
>>45462473Here you go, 9000+ hours
>>45462324Expanding a bit more on languages:Tio Sko: This is also a very small language, only spoken by around 50.000 or so people. These people are the ones that grow the algee, plants, mushrooms and bacteria that are the main products of the neutrient paste that is a common food item on the planet
>>45462734Yeah make sure we have this one archived tho
>>45462786I like it!
>>45462261>too hardcore for a socialist shithole like BoliviaI dunno, socialist shitholes have a pretty rich history of hardcore human rights violators.
>>45462853Thanks though I just tried to adapt lingua franca which, if anyone doesn't know, was a dialect spoken and understandable by sailors and merchants of every nationality across the Mediterranean from the middle ages to pretty much the 19th century
>>45462947Yeah but they usually look like impoverished peasants while doing it
>>45462988Except Turkey, Saudi-Arabia and China.They are lovely and modern and yet still are medieval in their ways of doing shit.
>>45462261> too Slaaneshi?I feel that if the troopers revel in the colors and mayhem, Then it gets into heretic. But as is, They use it as a version of Shock and awe, Instead with Shock and Disorient. The troopers themselves still work professionally, Doing the jobs they do just in a Neon-puke environment of their own creation. Kind of like How Working at a amusement park could be seen as 'Wowy-Zowy, Fun and wonder all the time" But in reality the workers are there to do their job and do it well. [Hopefully.]Perhaps using a version of Fireworks that create a bunch of smoke as mines/traps they set their foes on edge in the dense Hives, While every one else is in a frothing Psychadellic hll hole, they are SSDDing it like always.
>>45446459color me retarded, but how did you do this? I'm trying to do my own take and I cant figure this shit outIm using paint.net
>>45463108To be fair, when China reached its apex level of murdering hapless peasants, they were using the city equivalent of peasants to do it. And that period accounts for basically half of all socialist-caused executions the world over (there were a lot of people to kill in China)>>45463245>Perhaps using a version of Fireworks that create a bunch of smoke as mines/traps they set their foes on edge in the dense Hives, While every one else is in a frothing Psychadellic hll hole, they are SSDDing it like always.I for one welcome our new oddly-stoic OONCE OONCE OONCE night club-creating cyberpunk overlords.
>>45463264Dunno about him, but you could try using GIMP. Its free and not hard to learn to use for basic shit.
>>45462734should probably get on that, since this one is almost gone
>>45462021Among other IG, they're a bit bitter about having been essentially left to die on a planet where humans can't survive. That being said, they're also quite proud of their culture and the fact that they managed to survive despite this. They're loud, offensive, and shameless looters of both allied and enemy forces alike. Under all of this, they ultimately want to prove to the rest of the galaxy that they exist and they honestly believe themselves to be the very best at combat in tight quarters and that the Tyranid threat would be under control if they could handle it themselves.
>>45463464we're at bump limit and on page 9I'll make another thread in a bit
>>45462261I'd say disorientating lights and smoke bombs would be more like non-standard tactics / cultural weirdness that every IG army picks up and commanders have to account for. If you have Kriegers, expect suicidal charges and trenches. If you have Salvar Chem Dogs expect everything that isn't nailed down to be stolen. If you have these guys, prepare for dayglo grafitti appearing on your motor pool and a total inability to do stealthy night missions.
>>45463493see>>45463576I'm keeping the thread open in preparation for continuation but someone else should save this shit too
>>45463596don't worry, I've been saving everythinglike I said, I'll make a new thread
>>45463671Has the thread been archived?? If not i can do that now
>>45463687I don't think so
>>45463671>>45463687You two are doing the Emperor's work kind anons!
>>45463697Ok imma archive this shit. I finally finished the draft of that paper i was writing so i can pay slightly more attention while i do some other stuff
>>45463716>>45463706>>45463697>>45463687so I'm gonna make the thread and you guys can dump info and images
Ok we're officially on suptg now. New thread can commence
Pls archive this
I don't think having just one regiment works with the size of the Hive and the established facts of the world. Assume you're an Administratum adept working in the tithes department of one of the charter worlds somewhere, probably an entire subsector away. Your entire job is calculating the correct tithes for planets and, wherever possible, setting targets to exploit planets to their fullest. You neither know nor care about the circumstances of the individual planets, only what they can contribute to the greater Imperium.So we have Hua Yaun. Initially settled for the mineral extraction, it probably still has some material left but its resources are drying up and its not making the old quotas. If its a moon, the gas giant it orbits probably has other materials that can be harvested or processed, but certainly not enough to warrant such a vast population. Its a lifeless, airless moon - it needs food and air to be imported, which means supply routes, which means waste management, which means cost/benefits analysis of outputs from the planet vs imports to sustain the population. When times were good, everything is fine. The supermassive hive population can be fed from the profits of mineral extraction and processing. As the resources dwindle, however, the ledger needs to be updated. Is it worth it to me, the penpusher light years away, to keep the imports going. Would it not be much more tidy to direct the Adeptus Mechanicus to strip what technology they can from the planet, relocate those that can afford to leave, then let nature take its course with the surplus population when you stop delivering oxygen.Delivering new guard regiments regularly serves several purposes: first, it proves the hive is still valuable and thus deserving of being allowed to live; second, it gets significant amounts of the population off-planet just in case the worst should happen (perhaps allow a mixed regiment?) so at least some of the culture survives.
OP here, thank all of you for a great thread!
