This is a thread to iron out the specfics of the Hua Yuan 1st Exterminator Regiment, an IG regiment that /tg/ randomly rolled up using the 1d4chan creation tables, and the other Exterminator Regiments and Imperial Forces in the titanic hive city.What we rolled and some little things we have so far: https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hua_Yuan_ExterminatorsHua Yuan 1st Exterminator RegimentSymbol> 园Motto>Nullus est instar Domus 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 Homeworld> Hive World: No claustrophobia, excellent sense of direction? Urban combat! > Dead World: Able to make full use of the technology required to survive in such places.

Descendants the crew of a gigantic mining vessel that crashed on an inhospitable planet and survived despite it all. They are extremophiles, proud, (literally) bright, and consummate bug hunters. They are the Exterminators.So feel free to join in and provide fluff, images or whatever you'd like. This belongs to /tg/. Remember: At this point we're basically fluffing a WH40k TTRPG setting. And we can't make something interesting by oversaturating the Regiments with Chinese elements.
>>45851515Some discussion starters, this time we're going to try and fully flesh out the 1st Hua Yuan Exterminator Regiment.>What's the company structure of the 1st like?>What are the Commissars like?>What's moral like, usually? >What do they think about other regiments? Other Hua Yuan Regiments?>What do they think about the 1st?>What does the 1st do on their days off? Do Hua Yuan guardsmen even get leave? >What's the garrison like?
>>45851710Also remember to check the talk/discussion on the wiki.
Furiously shameless bump
>>45851515We need a Warcry, everyone has one.
>>45853773I propose "Taste the Rainbow!"
>>45851515I think the next step is to bust out the rules for FFG "only war" RPG and create a full team of Hua Yuan characters, and then run a story time or campaign with them.
>>45854576>Another poster Praise the Omnissiah.I'd like to fully flesh out the first, then we can work on that. Roll20 games afterwards?
One last bump. For great justice. For the Exterminators that have fallen under a Nid's talon, for the Exterminators laid low by a Choppa, for the Exterminators ripped asunder by a traitor. For the Exterminator who lost his mind with ten grams of 'Nid Dust in hs brain. For the Exterminator put down by an fresh Commissar making a point. For the Exterminators that give their live for the rest of the team, because they know they have a family back home, and they have nothing. For the Exterminator that drowns in a burst sewer. For the Tanker that dies making sure the Exterminators get inside that hive, so they can raise hell. For the Recon Biker that crashes his bike on the way back to the FOB. To the Razorgirl that dies in a blaze of glory, because that's the only freedom she's ever gonna get.
For the blood in the Streets of Hua Yuan. For the silenced nobiles in the spires. For the mutants, raiders, and exiles left to rot in the wastes. For the kid too young to understand what's happening to him. For the slaves handed of to some grinning Xenos sadist. For the bum overdosing on something homebrewed, something to escape from the pain. For the man beaten in the street by an Arbitrator that didn't think his jokes where funny. To the kid sitting on the stoop, wrapped up in flame by a gang war gone out of control. For the bum kidnapped in the middle of the perpetual night and made into "grox meat".
For the music in underhive. For the kid who fills his life, left empty by his older brother's conscription, with graffiti and paint. For the ganger that makes sure the streets are clean, that Old Lady Lee get's her ration. For the Noble that donates money into the lower hive. For the Exterminator that finds love in a foreign hive. For the Razorgirl that finds love in a bar. For Ole Hester, who already has loved, and lost. For the ecstatic racer clutching a shining trophy of scrap and bitz. For the merchant that accepts his bastard son. For the Praetorian that falls in love with the very hive he exploited. For the Enforcer that looks upon the family without a home, and gives them a roof over their head, if only for the night. For Sects that lay down their arms, and realize that they where both preaching the same thing but with different words. For the gangers that lay down arms, for the kid on the stoop. For the smiles in a neon lit club, dancing to song that even if they don't know it, preaches the word of the Emperor in ways the Ecclesiarchy never could.
I don't bump this thread for myself. I don't bump it for the anons that helped me, the drawfags that made works of art, or even the writefags that brought the place to life.I bump this thread for Hua Yuan. I bump it for all the blood, filth, depravity, and treachery that defines the hive. And I bump it for all the honour, the family, the love, and the hope that every Hua Yuanese citizen holds in their heart. For the heroes with names no one in the greater imperium can pronounce right. For the artist who fights against the machine just by being different.I bump it for the sparks of happiness in a galaxy gone to shit.I bump this thread for Hua Yuan.
I just edited the 1d4chan page to change 41th Millennium to 41st. Also bump.
>>45857971Good job anon, you're a credit to the team
Bump. Because something might happen.
>>45851515Even in death I Still surf.>It was true...the ruling nobility of the upper hive knew it as true as the Emperor's bones. This corpse of a planet was nearing the end of it's use. That was the plan, as it bad been for generations. In reality the Administraitum barely cared about this world or it's pathetic tithes, it was one dead world with a hive amongst countless.>In sectors that are too underdeveloped to have an extensive recycling program, or for clusters of hive worlds that have an expectedly short or useful life span, a dedicated planet will host the extensive amount of waste each world makes, allowing for the hives to focus exclusively on churning out their given resources for the Imperium.>AshigaruSchwarzkropf IV was that world, in that system of the same name. It played host to a small forget world of little importance, originally founded by an explorator who's ship had malfunctioned and became stuck in the system's asteroid belt.>With the infestation of AshigaruSchwarzkropf IV, dropping detritus on the planet was no longer an option. It would only further serve to sustain the green tide there. Asteroids that had been mined of their useful material would be dropped on the planet periodically as a form of protracted exterminatus, but in reality was just an inexpensive containment method until it was convenient to attack the Orks. A new planet would be needed, the cluster was expected to remain minimally viable for at least 3,000 more years.>One ton. One ton less than the last shipment was all it took for a single Administrator to quickly predesignate Hua Yuan as "expended". No further resources would be dedicated to planet, and any further resources gained would simply be a token boon for the Emperor.
>>45860582>It was a full solar year before anyone reacted to the loss of AshigaruSchwarzkropf IV. Only when the local forge world petitioned the Adeptus Mechanus for council did the issue become expedited. Debris barges were simply being parked in AsigaruSchwarzkropf's system and left. Apparently this was unsatisfactory as the forge world itself had no recycling program, and "Could not cope" with the garbage amassing in their system.>Even the dead can still serve, and the Expended planet of Hua Yuan was reclassified as an Imperial "Planetfill" as an interim solution to the loss of A.S.IV. It was likely the population never even realized they had been reclassified twice within a solar decade. Since the local imperial detachments still had not gotten the first message, and would not for years, sending out an expedited astropath message would be prudent.>The barges came at a trickle at first, as supply lines were adjusted, and gradually increased in pace. Occasionally the ancient machines would commit suicide into the planet's atmosphere, or simply decide their superstructure could no longer handle low altitude dumping and would release their payload into the upper atmosphere. All the same, the scrap, garbage, and battlefield wreckage of a thousand worlds was beginning to descend on Hua Yuan.>It had been one solar year since the dumping on Hua Yuan had commenced. No official edict, letter or even memorandum was given to the anyone planetside about the change in their role. Life continued on as normal.
>>45860582Jesus christ are are the implications of this?
>>45860849They would probably dump on the far side of the moon. The funny thing is is that this would probably jump start their economy as scrapping and recycling would become a viable business opportunity.
>>45861765>>45860861the greentext is an initial idea from me, feel free to mold and shape it as you see fit.I like the idea of the scrap being on the far side of the planet, or at least not near the main hive...all the time.Potential implications?Well...New mini settlements gradually cropping up.Armed convoys trekking across the planet to salvage materials and occasional tech.Hulks of ships, tanks, obsolete or destroyed military equipment being of value, or getting refurbished for use against nids and other local problems.Even biological garbage is valuable, perhaps most valuable, as it can be used to grow/ make food. So, dramatic fight out between gangs over a giant payday that is in fact several dozen septic tanks filled with grox dung.
>>45861991Might give the Raiders and mutants a place to hide, a sort of scrap town and shanty spaceport
>>45861991I could see this being like a little mini hive
>>45867305bumpmos please feel free to sculpt the garbage dump idea, advance it, or write fag it.I dont know who lays claim to this stuff, i know its sort of anon, but there is usually one-three drivers behind it.Otherwise, The next concept I have is that the Hua Yuan are placed in a unique spot. If the hivemind agrees that the planet gains a second identity as a garbage dump, and is falling off imperial records as a viable hive world, the Exterminators would probably be left to sort of fend for themselves, meaning lore would have to further be created about how they do that.I direct attention to the scrap, and ramshackle crap that can be made, and further the kalwoon influence, with each new "wall" or expansion being built around the original ship/ hive,
>>45870830No, I like perhaps an administrative fuck up that got the shit sent there, but they are still as viable as they where yesterday. The mines are just beginning to empty out but there's still plenty of stuff that the moon is useful for.
>>45853773Just through some vulgarities.We have a motto, if that means anything
>>45854615Lets do that, no one is really discussing fluff right now, anywaysI didn't realize this thread was here for a full day, I feel like a cock for not hopping in here sooner
>>45871868I don't even know why I try anymore, to be honest. Raise awareness? Get folks to update the fuckin' wiki?I don't know. I feel like a husband with a wife dying of terminal cancer and my kids are stuck studying abroad, and can't afford to get back. So every now and then we have awkward facetime conversations where we all pretend everything is normal. But it isn't and it never will be again.>>45871839I know we have a Motto, but I doubt that's something the Hua Yuangese are going to shout while parkouring inside a plume of red smoke and Lasfire.
>>45872005We just need a little bit more to be done. Add like two more regimental types, more cultural fluff on the army, add the mechanicus and ecclesiarchy stuff and bam
>>45872005>>45872051Lets do a write up for the grenadiers. We'll chip this away, don't you worry arbites
>>45872051Two more Regimental types? We have our bases pretty well covered I think. Some more cultural quirks of the regiments would be brill. The Ecclesiarchy on Hua Yuan has been pretty well done, but the Mechanicus has not.
>>45872213I mean added to the wiki. Sure we have all this stuff done, but not all that much has been thrown up on there. Like, there was a ton of shit written on the jade flame sect, and nothing about it on our page
>>45872210So, are they squad leaders for Exterminators? Or can they have Companies/squads all to their own?I like the squad leader thing, we have a lot of stuff like in the American Army, I don't know how the chinese do it. I like the squad idea too, with the rest of the company existing solely to support the Grenadier squads.
>>45872286>I like the squad idea too, with the rest of the company existing solely to support the Grenadier squads.Maybe the other way around. When some niggas are doing poorly, they send in the big guns to come and take care of things for the pattsies, who are considerably less pattsy than the normal shmucks who make up the standard guard forces. But, in all honesty, it could probably be both.
>>45872317What? No I mean there are like, two Platoons of Grenadiers, 1st and 2nd. The rest handle things like Valkyries and other neat Stormtrooper stuff. The Grenadier company will be notionally part of the Exterminator regiment but are loaned out by the Tempestus Scions
>>45872432oooh, my bad. Grednadiers are taken from normal soldiers, so I don't know how much control the scions would have over them
>>45872432They were probably formed early on in the Exterminator's life. They seem like they would really useful
>>45872005how about 爱屋及乌 for battle cry
>>45873765pretty sure it means>love me, love my dog
>>45873204I would argue that the Grenadier company would have been formed after their third or fourth major engagement, where the Stormtroopers saw that they could do with some special forces. The squad leader thing could occur to give the small regiment some much needed firepower and enhanced leadership capabilities at the squad level
>>45874607maybe the grenadier regiments have high levels of normal guardsmen for when they just need bodies to bulster the ranks, or maybe they just call on them whenever they need higher numbers
>>45874644There's no way there would be a whole regiment of grenadiers. In an Exterminator regiment, which is smaller than your standard regiment, only squad leaders in the fighting infantry platoons and perhaps a dedicated company would be Grenadiers.Within the grenadier company, only a few platoons would be composed of actual grenadiers, and the squad leaders are usually Praetorian or Drookian. The Platoon Sergeants and Command Team can be actual Stormtroopers assigned to oversee Exterminator engagements and secure Tempestus Scion (and by extension the High Lords of Terra's) Interests.
>>45874762That's why suggested that it be primarily standard troops and support units, but you're right, the numbers would be too big to make any sense. Me mal
>>45874850Well within the grenadier company it would make sense for it to be mostly support, Tauroxes to get them there, Valkyries if the environment permits, perhaps a mortar platoon to draw fire, logistics to make sure they keep a good intelligence network, just stuff like that. The Grenadiers and Stormtroopers themselves exist only to kill shit and take key positions.
You know what we haven't talked about at all? Commissars.
>>45875267We did once, I think. Back when we were going China crazy
>>45875397Shit, did we? What was said?
>>45875624There was two posts on how to make them into Red Army enforcers. It was mostly just a concept someone throw out there. You have an idea in mind for these guys? I know you're also doing the Shields, so it's all good
>>45875674Nigga I live for fluff. I'm only shitposting in these "Roll your Own" threads because my Freeform RPG Group and I had some major creative differences. Besides I'm really personally attached to Hua Yuan. I have no idea why, it's not even mine and I've done like...minimal work on it. Anyways the Commisariat is going to pretty standard no matter where you are. A Schola is a Schola is a Schola. Not a lot of variation. I was thinking that they would either be Hua Yuanese uppercrust hard asses/former Mobsters or Praetorian hardasses. And they wouldn't be super BLAM happy either. They'd just beat the shit out of you and send you to a Penal Regiment or labour camp to meet the Tithe. In Exterminator units they would BLAM Exterminators that have fully lost their mind from Xenon.
>>45875925Nigga, you wanna talk about attachment, I was the OGOP and stayed up well into the morning for each threadI feel like old mob enforcers would be a lot more fun. They know how to keep young punks in line
>>45876007/AR/?I think that would be a deliberate choice to send the children of Mob Bosses and Gang lords to the Schola, as well as nobility. Yes their original personalities and pasts are damn near scrubbed clean, but they still know how to order people around, and the triad kids will have no reservations on using a bolt pistol on a motherfucker. I think having Praetorian Commissars for the Regiment at large, then old school Hua Yuanese badasses for smaller units.
>>45876127Sounds good to me. Maybe not so many praetorians, though. They would be higher up on the ranks, I feel
>>45876169Yeah, that's why I said at the Regiment level. Like, one to three per Regiment. For Exterminators they might not even have any Praetorians outside the Tempestus Scion ran Grenadier attached company.
I also realized that we never talked about celebrations and holidays in Hua Yuan.I think that's kinda important.
>>45876274A little. Chinese New Year?
>>45876296I don't know man. I'm going to bed, that was just a bump. We have a lot of stuff we can build a couple holidays around, you know?
>>45876306I dig ya. For sure they involve bright lights and loud soundsNight arbite
>>45876328And synth-whatever. Or punk.Night Rat.
Bump for bedtime
>>45873765What, the phrase means "Love your home, even the birds inside it"As in love everyone in your household.That's nowhere NEAR what a battle cry should sound like.
>>45877986What would sound better? Something repping their homeworld?
For a only-war campaign using them I think it should start out with something in their element. Say something like they are sent to a rebellious hive work and have to work their way through the underhive trying to find and exterminate the rebel cells. It can be a nasty mix of vietcong tunnel fighting and the descent or something. With firefights at a brutally short range that will leave everyone on edge. Tunnels that become so small you have to crawl on your belly to get through in single file lines and a failed perception check might cause you to trip an booby trap that buries the whole party. It would be almost pitch black with most of the light being what the party brings with them and even this deep in the hive the roar of machinery could probably still be heard masking the noises of approaching enemies and making them hear things that aren't there. You could even have them being hunted by a genestealer cult behind all of the rebellions with a purestrain stealer slowing hunting them while they are hunting it. You've got to play tricks on the players and make them see and hear things that aren't there make them paranoid about every tunnel they go down and make them pay for mistakes. what do you guys think?
>>45879879Make them secret cultists or genestealers and it sounds great
>>45879879That sounds fucking horrifying.It's perfect. I think that's what half of Exterminator Warfare is. When it's not surgical strikes and raids, it's wandering around ducts hoping not to get ambushed.
>>45880822Long term warfare absolutely. Of they know where the enemy is held up, it's not really a fight, they just crash the place with no survivors. Prolonged engagements is urban vietnam meets alien on crack. Months of wandering abandoned halls where there have been reports of engagements, just knowing they can jump out at any moment and destroy you from anywhere. Sounds like it'd be really fun to play
>>45880895I was thinking about it, and it's not really related, but the use of vertical positioning makes these guys really interesting. Like, if there's a group of enemies they no are pin down in one room, what's to stop them from dropping the ceiling on them? Or blowing the floor out and firing on them after they fall through? They're fun
We could use real life gang mottos as inspiration for our war cry
Aw shit we back,In other news my PC's are aware of the Hua Yuan, but they still have yet to make an appearance on planet or see one of the Guardsmen, but they've heard stories
>>45881792>>45882196When we right Nobody remembers, When we do wrong Nobody forgets.It's the Hells Angels motto and it's 40k as fuck
>>45882842When we do right Nobody remembers, When we do wrong Nobody forgets.
>>45882959Das good mayneI like itWhat'd you tell your group about them?
>>45883073The local garrison is about to be rotated out, and the Lord Governor is trying to get an Exterminators regiment transferred to replace them as they are anti gang specialists, also there has been minor genestealer issue on planet but the PC's don't quite know that yet
>>45883174What plans you got cooking up for them, if you do
>>45883216I'm pretty improvisational so I don't know
>>45883689S'all cool. Just curious
>>45882842>>45882959Perhaps something repping Hua Yuan? They are a super green regiment and Hua Yuan is a galactic Nobody.
>>45883844I like the Real World gang mottos. Some Yakuza have "help the weak and fight the strong."
>>45883951That could have connotations that the folks in power won't feel comfortable with. Something that exalts their homeland, and shows that they know they're the best.
>>45884302Brainstorming here:They come for our blood, but drown in their own.A million just like me a billion just like usDeath in technicolor.Blinding DeathShock and Hua YuanEnd brainstorm. I still like the first the bestWhen we do right Nobody remembers, When we do wrong Nobody forgets.
>>45884534>A million just like me a billion just like usNot bad
>>45885078Yeah, it's kinda of an general Imperial Guard thing but also highlighting how many fucking people live in Hua Yuan
>>45885129Maybe change just with an adjective, then
>>45884534>>45885078Hmm就算殺了一個我,還有千千萬萬個我!(Even if you killed me, there's still billions and billions of me!)
>>45886479Yeah, but how quickly can that be said? How does that sound for a warcry?How's about "We are the First! We are Hua Yuan!"
>>45886745>>45886479It could be call and responseColonel: Even if you kill meTroops: there's still billions and billions of me>We are the First! We are Hua Yuan!Just seems a bit generic
>>45886838Wait WAIT I got it!給點顏色你看看On paper it means "Showing someone some colours" but it means "Teaching someone a lesson" or "Showing someone what you're capable of"Both a boast and a pun, what more do you want
>>45886899I'll default to the translator, that's sounds great and I get to keepWhen we do right Nobody remembers, When we do wrong Nobody forgets.For my dudes The 1001st Cadian Death Chorus
>>45886899P E R F E C TE R F C T
>>45886899How would you transliterate that to english?
>>45887252Frankly I'm not sure, are there any phrases/idioms that keeps both the meaning and the colour pun?Or maybe you can keep the literal translation "(I'll/We'll) show you some colours!"Closest I could think of could be "I'll/We'll show you my/our true colours" but it's not exactly the same meaning.
>>45887414No not the translation, I like the depth of meaning and how it doesn't translate well into "Gothic". Keep just mean how one would actually say it.
>>45887678Oh as in Mandarin?Gěi diǎn yánsè nǐ kànkɑnIn Cantonese it'll be 比D顏色你睇下 (roughly Bei Di An Sik Nei Tai Ha)
>>45886899Hot damn HK!
>>45888654To be fair, I felt like an idiot for not recalling that phrase sooner considering how obvious it was.
>>45888787It's okay, man. All that matters is that it's here now
What's left to tackle
>>45889660>Mechanicus >Major Gangs>Cultural quirks of the Regiments (making camp in trenches, graffiti, etc)>This scrap town on the other side of the moon>Holidays>>>45851710
>>45889814>>This scrap town on the other side of the moonThere is one? Since when?
>>45889814>holidaysCelibrating the day the imperium found them?The day they crashed?The day the fought the nids first time?Day celebrating the army in general?Chinese holidays?
>>45890523I'm not quite sure myself about Chinese holidays. While we -could- adapt them and give them our own spin to it some are pretty connected to traditions and Chinese mythology which can be difficult to adapt.
>>45890641Throw some out there, man. If anything, it works for inspiration
>>45890759 Great Flood of Gun-Yuhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Flood_(China)Maybe we can mine something out of a chinese creation myth
>>45890800Instead of a great flood, could be a great collapse in the lower levels. Or just the crashing of Hua yuan in general
>>45890860>r just the crashing of Hua yuan in generalThis makes the most sense I think
>>45890490Sounds like the ramblings of a madman to me
>>45892529Even here?>>45860849Either way I think it's an interesting idea that can be worked in somehow. I'm more interested in the Rave Mechanicus and cultural quirks for role playing purposes.
>>45892594Then let's work on those
>>45892657I think a good start would be to compile what we already have
>>45893003Isn't that archive rat's job
>>45893174It's everyone's job, anon. We're all in this together
>>45893662Alright Arbites. We could compile the mechanicus stuff. That was just last thread
>>45893695Yeah, it's not a lot. I'm gonna swamped for the next week, but after Tuesday if it hasn't been done I'll see if I can compile the cultural stuff
>>45893775I'm telling you man, let the beast regiment die. I'll fucking OP another one on Friday or even tomorrow if you want to make another regiment/chapter
>>45893815The set up was perfect man...Oh well. So is life in suppose. Mechanicus?
>>45894104Right.So the Electro-Priests can give you holy tattoos. But looking at them they are aren't huge on bionics. Would the influx of bionics be something that came with the proper Mechanicus, or is there another sect dedicated to maker you Better, Faster, Harder, Stonger?
>>45894168The guy was pretty set on having their stuff be Chinese knock offs, so probably another sect that provides them cheaper than the main techies
>>45894265The current theme is everything is a Chinese knock off save the Exterminators. Buts a thing I've noticed in asia, and it's not necessarily a Chinese thing as I've never been there, is going to Buddhist temples and getting tattooed for protection. The Electro-Priests could provide a similar service, and Hua Yuan Techpriests could chrome your bionics for a donation to the cult.
>>45894328I was never not agreeing with the tattoos my friend
>>45894556Riight..but Ya know I feel like I'm fluffan by myself here.
>>45894610Mobile sucks dick, my man. Typing is as much of a Hassal as trying to contribute and study at the same time.
>>45894654I feel you. Like to the T.I've been mobile this entire ride.
>>45894906You're crazy, man. We've had like 11 threads, and I know you've been in the other tg homebrew shitsAnyways, I think there was enough written on the tech priests last thread to do a proper write up, and we should take it from there. I won't be in a position to do so for a while, howebet
We need to tackle regiment culture and some historic battles eventually
>>45895006Crazy? CRAZY?!Eh, maybe. Some part of me is thinking about taking what I perceive as quality /tg/ 40ك and doing something with it. Yeah, the tech priest stuff is pretty easy.>>45895066I'VE BEEN FUCKIN TRYING ANON.Kultur comes first, imho. Let's fags role play easier.
>>45895286Then let us culture man
>>45898369Fuck it, bump
>>45898369All I remember is the trenches, and that tankers sleep in their boxes.
>>45899711We can come up with new stuff, too
>>45899755Well that's the idea, but we should see what we already have.
>>45900383Hey, if no one remembers it, what's that say about its quality
>>45900416Not necessarily. I can hardly remember half of RicciAnon's crap, and that was quality.
>>45901086Touché hombréI should really get to posting that crap
>>45894328I think the daft priests are fleshed out as much as they should be
>>45902779Aight. So what are some notable cultural things for Hua Yuan Regiments of all stripes? Things that would effect role playing.Some slang maybe?
Hi guys, sorry I've not been able to contribute much for a week or two because of thesis deadlines, but I've been making notes on the Religion/Sisters stuff in my spare time and I'm hoping whip them into something readable soon (and catch up with any threads I've missed!). I can't guarantee speed, however, and I've got to prioritise my real world work. I did do an in-universe speech which I hope would be useful for something though.>Sons and daughters of Hua Yuan, I stand before you with but one message: you are already dead. Only the Emperor and your fathers know the exact time and hour, but rest assured, your death is near and it will not be pleasant.>The luckiest among you will die screaming. You will have been given the chance to alert your squad mates to whatever foul creature ends your life. Most of you will simply die. Perhaps your end will come from a chitinous claw ripping out your belly, or blood like acid burning your flesh to the bone. Perhaps your bones will be ground beneath a traitor’s tank, your soul offered up as repast to their hungry gods. Perhaps it will come in an alien forest, a place where organic superstructure grows as dense as the pylons of our home. Perhaps it will be on an airless moon or in the void between the worlds. Perhaps it will be your fault. Perhaps there will be nothing you could have done. Perhaps you will die to let others live, if only for a time.>I say this not to frighten you. I say this as a bald statement of fact. The universe is a dark and terrible place, for there is no peace amongst the stars. But we are Hua Yuan. A thousand, thousand ancestors stand behind you as testament to the strength of our blood, of the will to survive and thrive where all others would have perished. We are not the proud Praetorians, living for the glory of a homeworld they will never see again. But neither are we the poor, doomed children of Krieg, spending our lives heedlessly to repay some long-held blood debt.
>>45903191>We are Hua Yuan! Our wealth was never in this world but in the people who lived upon it! From the highest skyborn to the lowest hole-dweller, you are the inheritors of a prize beyond your understanding. We have been born to die, because we are most endowed with life! Ours is a sacrifice offered freely, and in this we are the Emperor’s kin. We alone are fit to stand before His throne with heads held high!>We are Hua Yuan! In death we will live in glory!>Colonel Yun-fa, Hua Yua 3rd Regiment, speech to the newly inducted recruits of the 326th Muster.
>>45903191Ricci! Thank god! I've been trying to do a write up on all the stuff you said about the ecclesiarchy on Hua yuan
>>45903354Neat! I've been trying to do the same sort of thing, but like I said its just been hard to find the time right now. If you want to carry on instead that's fine. Do you want me to try and dig out my notes? I really want to write out this short thing with an encounter between some acolytes of the Inquisition and one of the leading Order Famulous sisters (perhaps even statting some), but I've only broad brush strokes right now.
>>45903603Please dig out your notes my man If you writefag about them as well as you wrote that speech, by all means, please
>>45903670Ok. I've actually only just got in and I'm in the middle of making my tea, so I'll have to get back to you later, but I'll see what I can see. As an aside, the actual logistics of real world crusades can be really interesting. The sheer financial costs are astronomical!
>>45903706Ayyy RicciNigga. The fact that there's a lot of Chinese 40K cosplay is fantastic. I'm trying to tie a knot on this whole project. Any thoughts?
>>45903706Yeah, moving that many men and supplies around is crazy. It'd probably be a lot cheaper with modern transporting technology and supplies
>>45903706Its those damn venicians, man
Fucking life saving bump.
>>45907002I dunno what's going on, ,man
>>45907702Let's fluff it up, archive! Quick, lay down some fat fucking regiment culture
>>45907702HKanon hereMe neither, I'm just passively lurking while working on University stuff.Seems like we've hit a cinch where we just can't think of anything new to bring to the table.
>>45908224We're definitely calling it soon. We just need everything up on the wiki
>>45908224>>45908314To be honest I've been making these threads to raise awareness in a bid to see the project done, because I simply don't have the time to do it myself. However now I'm more concerned about fleshing them out with cultural stuff. Slang, mannerisms, garrison behavior, things that set them apart fromantic other regements, even amongst Hua Yuanese regements.For role playing and writefaggotry purposes
>>45908501Ah wellI know slang from HK (obviously) and maybe a bit from Taiwan, but honestly not much from the Mainland.Mannerism-wise I could see them being focused in efficiency/multi-tasking to the point of being very impatient about things.Rough-talking too, and when anyone ticks them off they'd have an even more insufferable attitude Try speaking in Mandarin in HK, you'll soon understand what I meanAlso opportunistic with a strong desire to exploit whatever advantages/legal loopholes/whathaveyou they could get their hands on.
>>45908782In addition, using stuff that they would have from the setting. Like calling hallways shafts, or something
is there chinese slang for police officers they could call commissars?
>>45908782Go review Singlish. Now imagine your entire regiment talks like that.Its a bit annoying if you are old, but its accurate and kinda funny. Kinds informative. I used to play a lot of online games with Singaporeans so I picked up on singlish back in the 90s/ early 2000s.https://youtu.be/pxFYW8BBjXIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ph47tjQK1y0Also fuck it. Include Cyber cranes or storks. Basically any long neck fishing bird.
>>45909428警犬Police dogsIt's not a very positive nickname.A more "neutral" term would be 差人/差佬>>45909565Oi, while we do have our Chinglish our English aren't -that- bad.We are a former Britbong colony after all.
>>45909674No worries man. Was just offering some insight on some of the other islands. I grew up in the Chicago land area in the late 80s/ early 90s. Lots of immigrants from Hong Kong, some leaving from Kalwoon, others just leaving because they knew china was going to get the Island eventually. Really good people, taught me a love of hong kong cuisine.In particular the picture related. I can reliably replicate it, but I will still willingly kill another man for fresh Nuomici
>>45909777*Kowloon.excuse me while I go shame myself.
>>45909777A lot of flips where I live, so I can sorta comment on them, if only it was any help
>>45909777Don't worry too much though, I ain't mad.Right, yeah...the period right before the handover where people were terrified of their future.They're right to be terrifiedEither way my impression of places like Chinatown tend to be what the Chinese -wants- the West to view them as rather than what they truly are like.Fortune Cookies bloody well don't exist in China, for one.
>>45909952Also bitch please, -this- is the quintessential HK sweets/pastry
>>45910010What's that? Need to know for strictly wiki purposes, trust meAlso, what's a real simple dish? One that guardsmen could make when they're occupying the trenches
>>45910131Egg tarts, m8.A bit like custard tarts from Britbongistan, except more eggy and eaten piping hot.Simple dishes?Hmmm...One I could think of is 粟米肉粒飯 (Rice with corn and cubed meat)It's basically just canned cream of corn and cubed pork heated together and thrown on rice.Of course in the case of our boys it's going to be "pork".
>>45910231>Of course in the case of our boys it's going to be "pork".Don't know why that made me laugh.Aight, I'll say that's a common dish found in he ranks
>>45910231Another quick meal if you're not asking for anything more sophisticated than "edible" would be the usual instant noodles with luncheon meat/sausages/eggs/whatever stuff you can throw into it.Macaroni and ham (not the posh kind of ham, processed so much the taste barely resembles meat "ham") in chicken broth is a pretty classic breakfast deal.Oh, and milk tea.A bit like builder's tea, except we use evapourated milk instead of fresh milk.Commonly served in Cha Chaan Tengs (our equivalent of the greasey spoon) and serious business to some.
>>45910339>Another quick meal if you're not asking for anything more sophisticated than "edible"The more low-brow the better, man. These guardsmen are kinda peices of shit, doubt they have a taste for the finer things in the garden
>>45910388https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imitation_shark_fin_soupThis then.It's usually sold as street food,but potentially filling depending on what you throw into it.
>>45910461>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imitation_shark_fin_soupI'm not gonna lie, those pictures make it look fucking nasty. They look really film-y
>>45910484Yeah they do get a bit oily and there's about as much MSG in it as your typical Chinatown fare, but then again it's street food.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cha_chaan_tengActually Cha Chaan Teng stuff could work, since they're all about efficiency and making meals out of cheap stuff.
>>45910554These guys are in forgien hives with ingredients like dead mutant dog and rusty, oily water. The artificial shark soup sounds like its a winner
I'm expanding on the regular infantry regiments on the wiki rn, and I just got to a little mini section on their quirks and behaviors. Any ideas? So far, I only have vandalization and looting, more bastardized versions of the trophy taking and mess that the Exterminators make
>>45910668probably a healthy amount of tagging, maybe they like to get in fights with the local gangers when they are off duty and deployed off planet
>>45910742>maybe they like to get in fights with the local gangers when they are off duty and deployed off planetThat's some good shit
>>45910668Trenches? That's honestly my favorite thing.I've been playing with an idea of a holiday where the Guard takes off work for a day during peace time, but the holiday builds interest for every day they aren't able to celebrate. This has lead to regulation that limits how many days can be celebrated, as Guardsmen getting drunk for months on end was counter productive to the Tithes.I'm the very definition of Multitasking right now, sorry if I don't make sense.
>>45910821I thought trenches were an exterminator thing. I guess it doesn't make a difference. Could you remind me of what trenches are?
>>45910868I meant hua yuan trenches, arbites. I don't think they can dig in in a never ending tower
>>45910885Nope, most Hua Yuan units, save the tankers, dig in trenches to sleep in instead of pitching tents. Basically an ant farm/mole burrow. Makes them feel cozy. Tankers will normally park their Armour on top of the trenches or around the openings and just sleep and live in them, leaving the tank only to wash or do their business. Mostly. I can't remember what thread it was in but just pop in all of them and ctrl F "Trench"I think it was a regiment concentric one
>>45910594One more before I crash for the night.Snake soup, usually consumed during Autumn (when the snakes are fattening themselves for hibernation) as a kind of delicacy.While the ones served in HK use more proper ingredients, the HY version would be a lot more…Dibbler, should I say.There's also something about eating raw snake gall bladder mixed with a bit of booze, but I'm not sure about the details
>>45910742>>45910768When deployed to a foreign hive they get in fights with local gangers and claim territory as they are relatively immune from local law enforcement, as this reduces local criminal influence, planetary governors in hive worlds often request the Hua Yaunses for garrison duty whenever possible.>>45910885I know, I'm making a shitty joke. I read the trench camp thing as whenever they were deployed to a non hive area. For instance when deployed to a jungle they don't pitch tents they dig a little trench city to replicate their hive feeling.
>>45911005>For instance when deployed to a jungle they don't pitch tents they dig a little trench city to replicate their hive feeling.Shucks, that's really cute
>>45910998Dude, you're always a big help. I'm a little jealous I can't contribute as much, man
>>45911070Same desuHKAnon, you da real MVP. Forreal. Like we legitmitaley can't do this without you phampai
>>45911134Fuck you faggot, you're the one who keeps this runningBut, back on topic so this doesn't end in a circlejerk
>>45911204truAny thoughts on this? Hua Yuan strikes a perfect cord between Funhammer and Grimdurk>>45910821
>>45911244"holiday" might be a stretch. Probably just some insentive for obeying orders. But yeah, I like it
Cultural flavor idea: They have a relatively low opinion of space marines as their only exposure to them ever, was watching a squad get shreked by a lictor after hearing space marines get hyped up for a long time by other worlds regiments. After hunting down and killing the lictor they just assumed Space Marines were large dudes in armour.So when they hear space marines are being deployed to their theatre of battle instead of jizzing over the Emperor's own angels of Death, they just kinda don't react. They just think of them a commando/ heavy infantry unit of equal or lower expertise than themselves
>>45911525Not to mention that space marines are destructive as fuck, often unnessicarily so, which they wouldn't like coming from a world with very little space.
>>45911525Maybe this is why they hate the White Scars and love the Raptors?
>>45910668Here's what I have so farLacking the discipline of their more well trained brothers, the tactics used by these guardsmen are strikingly similar to what you might see during a turf war of some gangers. Rushed out to meet tithes or kicked out of Exterminator training, there's little discipline to be found anywhere in the ranks, including the officers. The Imperium at large uses them little better than penal legions, cannon fodder to flood a world with until one side stops moving first. They regularly work hand in hand with Exterminators, they act as a moving meat wall for strategic Hive swarming while the exterminators do the cool shit. There's a clear resentment on both sides, often only having their pride in their homeworld and disdain for outsiders act as a unifying force.Because of its unsavory recruits and loose command, the regular regiments have some interesting quirks. The have a nasty tendency to loot the worlds they're deployed to, keeping what they like and selling what they don't back home, in almost a bastardized version of the exterminator's trophy taking. Tagging is another favored pastime amongst the forces, leaving all kind of profane and borderline heretical writings and pictures all over the former battlefield. Fights are common amongst the guards in a regiment, given their pride in their ganger/territorial heritage. Because of this, they essentially act as large gangs on the worlds they're stationed on. Given their size, they wipe out local outfits pretty quickly leading to a surprisingly comical situation where planetary governors will sometimes ask for them in order to drop crime rates.
>>45911628Whoa, whoa, I thought we where a fairly disciplined Regiment ussually
>>45911687These are for the regular non-exterminator guards that are just tithes, basicallyOr so I thought
>>45911628>>45911687>>45911707Archive is rightThe exterminators are disciplined. The line infantry are bit low quality due to poor local knock gear and the best recruits going to exterminators units
>>45911765I'm thinking that these guys are profficient cooks because of their shitty supplies, and list some of the shit HKanon was telling us about. Is this a good call, or no?
>>45911707>>45911742I had a brain fart ignore me.Ah. Yeah actually that makes a lot of sense and feeds into the whole shitty line infantry thing. Besides, Line Infantry and Enforcer regiments are used for training and to house those worthless faggots who can't opr8 or crew a BEHNBLADE. Or drive a bike like the Tallarans can fu- I mean ride a horse. Discipline power rankingsExterminator Stormtrooper companies>Exterminator regiments>>Tankers>>>Penal(If the Commissar is a deadly hardass)>>>>Recon companies>>>Line Infantry>>>>>>>>Penal (If the Command team doesn't give two shits)What's the compiling status?
>>45911851good call, but only they like their cooking other planet's regiments think it's awful
>>45911851I think Hua Yuanese cooks would be proficient but probably not be very good for you at best or tast like shite and worst.But they WILL produce grub.
>>45911925Well its little more than shitty street food made from shit they most likely find around. Other regiments can thing Hua Yuanese food is disgusting as a result
>>45911985Pretty much everyone hates Hua Yuanese line regiments. But they usually have so many dudes that drowning the enemy in bodies works.So I'm tracking four kinds of regiments; Exterminator, Infantry, Armored/Siege, and PenalRight?
>>45912120Scouts? Or are those apart of the armored regiments.
>>45912120recon has been brought up, but that's more of sub category within other regiments
>>45912184>>45912177There are recon companies within regiments.
>>45912290We need something official, my man. I still desperately want my akira scouts
Fuck damn it I wish we had an artfag to do a drawing for the regular infantry, armored division, and Penal. It'd make the page look so nice
>>45912321A dedicated two to three companies dedicated to Mounted, Armoured, and Infantry Recon makes a lot of sense to me anon.
Here's the last bit for the regular guard. Please give me feedback on what to add/changeDuring prolonged occupations, rather than making camp by pitching tents or occupying blown out buildings, Yuanese guards often dig series of foxholes and tunnels that they live in, called a "Hua Yuanese Trench". While it can provide some protection from enemy vollies, it is mostly a way to recapture the cramped feelings of home.Because of their lack of proper supplies most of the time, members of the guard have become experts at cooking cobbled up grub. Made from whatever they can get their hands on, their butchured taste-of-home has lead to other regiments thinking Hua Yuanese food is inedible garbage. Most known dishes are pretty modular as a result of the improvised culinary they often have to make due with. Imitation Fish Soup (鱼缸仔, Yúgāng zǐ) has three main components, imitation fish (boiled or fried), noodles, and a thick, chicken/mushroom/egg substitute stock for broth. Dried Beef and Noodles (牛肉和麵條, Niúròu miàn) is a common Yuanese dish, made from stir-fried "beef", he fen (broad "rice" noodles), dark "soya" sauce, and "bean" sprouts. Hua Yuan styled buns are pretty popular, including fruit buns (with or without a slab of butter substitute inside), cocktail buns, Satay beef buns, barbecued pork buns, etc. Youtiao (油條), is a fried dough lightly salted and made so they can be torn lengthwise in two.
>>45913092>>45911628Man, it felt good to finally get some more progress up and running! I'll probably due the armored and penal regiments tomorrow, if no one objects. Of course, I'll post everything I have before adding it, and ask for all of your guy's inputI forgot how much fun this is!
>>45913092I think they would absolutely live in bombed out buildings. Digging is an ass but most Gardeners are agoraphobes, even those who lived in the mid hive and up and have sweeping hive vistas that feature in canon art since they're used to having a ceiling.

>>45909952>>45910010Eh, its interesting. Back in the "day" yeah. Chinatown had two faces. Public face, and internal face. My dad did business so I actually got to know a few families, play with their kids, keep busy while he did whatever. Kinda served me well, I struck up a really great conversation with a baker and he explained to me what I was doing wrong with my pastries. Little stories like that I can tell all day. good times. All the same...>>45910010And while those are good, they pale in comparison to my posting. Especially if you put some banana extract into the rice flour as you are mixing it up. fucking have mercy, shit is so good. put down a wad of red bean paste, wrap the mass around it, and roll in dried coconut. Take a bite, go berserk, kill your neighbors. ya know. regular stuff.>>45910995sounds cool as fuck.>>45912120Ya know, with the Hua Yuan, what about the women? Do they exist within the regiments?>unrelated to allWas thinking about Hua Yuan vehicles lately, probably mostly las based due to a lack of proper supply chains, with near zero shell shooting weapons. With that said, due to their equipment often being war salvage or domestic production some of the tanks and vehicles may have a very eclectic style. Even going so far as to continue the "light show" theme to the weapons, but due to their larger size the color difference in beam is mostly cosmetic.
>>45914583>Are there any other kinds of regiments that we haven't mentioned coming out of Hua Yuan? Air and mechanized are under discussed.>What's the average company composition/layout of a Hua Yuan regiment?Probably flexible, with units flowing more like a blob that breaks apart and swarms back together. If you consider the nature of a hive with its many corridors and walkways this would make sense. So possibly a larger than normal number, swarming forward, with commissars taking charge of who is in their line of sight, and then delegating further down as they become removed from each other.>Do we have any sworn enemies?nids?>Who will come to Hua Yuan's defense at the drop of a hat?...the administratum. :D>What's the Hua Yuan navy like?Probably poorly equipped. Possibly made of hand me downs.>Any Hua Yuanese units go rouge?Gang members likely view their guard duty as an opportunity and second job, so yes. Probably hunted down when it makes sense, and come back when it benefits them and they can get away with it.>Are these guys too snowflakey? If so, how can we move them away from that?Avoid Chinese lettering, and excessive symbols. WH40k when done right, alludes to other culture, and does not outright insert an exact copy of that culture.>Are we balancing out all their elements and influences well? If not what can we improve upon?needs more imperium.
>>45914723>what about the womenFirstborn is Firstborn anon. No matter what they're rocking, once they hit 18/19 and they ain't pregnant they're off to join the circus.But to answer your question fully...https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hua_Yuan_Exterminator_WritefaggotryGo down to the last story. 13th Penal, courtesy of Arbites Anon. Lemmie know if that answers ya question
>>45913092Eh, 牛肉麵 is more of a Taiwanese thing and beaides what you describe is more 乾炒牛河 than anything.I'm not sure if that one fits though, to make a good plate of it needs a burning hot stove and a good enough wok which might not be easily attainable. (but then the resulting shitty dish might be the point)In other words it needs 鑊氣 "Wok qi" but I can't properly describe what that means.
>>45914796I think their air arm would be lacking or completely non-existent. I mean if the whole planet has become a landfill sight people may associate flying with rubbish hence noone wanting to go into the air arm unless they have dishonoured themselves For the mech units I'm thinking an almost orkish level of jury rigging. Im mean all the scrap around means eveyone can make something out of it. Cant tell what we decided on how the Ad Mech feel about working with them but they could resent the task or only assign the worst performing or hated techpriests to the world.Also hatred of nids could be just a general hatred of all things overtly organic First time in one of these threads so ignore or whatever
>>45913695Alright I'll change it
>>45918235I feel you, air should be very very limited. I don't know about Ork levels, but they'd probably be in disrepair because of how neglected they are, having to patch up battle damage on their own
>>45918350What I was saying about that will relate to how the Ad Mech feel desu. I agree maybe not ork level but it should be clear at any rate.
Having a Navy and Guard Unit at the same time is explicitly forbidden by Administratum so we don't need to worry about that. There is no Hua Yuan Navy
>>45918597I get that.Brings up a question; who do they get transportation from
>>45918646Looks like we're mostly infantry, so land transportation would be the backbone.
>>45918686I meant interplanetary shit
>>45918708Don't regiments/ sector IG high command just requisition a transport from the IN or seconder a ship if needs be. Dont hate I'm a bit fuzzy on the interplanetary/ IN lore
>>45918788Same with me, that's why I asked
>>45918646>>45918708>>45918788>>45918798The Imperial Navy Transports all guard regiments, The Administratum orders the Navy to transport the Guard to combat zones. Generally when combat starts there is someone In unified theater command. He is Generally the highest ranking Guardsman in the Subsector, but he can be Space marine or Inquisitor
>>45918838I gotcha I gotcha. Thanks, tempfag
>>45914583>are these guys too snowflake-y?I dunno, they're really only good for one thing that they're pretty decent at. They still die a fuckton and lose battles, and they're near useless outside of crowded urban environments
>>45914583>sworn enemies Nids?
Should there be a Hrud juunkla in Hua Yuan?
>>45919385Should it be a specific fleet? I like the nautilus one tg made, but that doesn't really mesh well with these guys
>>45919354I meant outside nids. In the Imperium even
>>45919639I doubt they can tell 'Nids apart. Although If I had to guess the a Fleet, It would a splinter from the one the fucked up Ultramar
>>45919683We can come up with some minimal fluff on them
>>45919673Imperial tech priests? Schola? Inquisition?
>>45919750for possible ad mech opinion of world see >>45918235
>>45919782I their pride means they probably don't get along well with other guardsmen. They work together fine, but they don't like each other
We haven't talked much about penal regiments outside of the razorgrils. What's their schtick?
>>45920306I'll add as section on them to the wiki when I get home
>>45920912We need to come up with what they're like, first
>>45920306I would think they are the loosers of gang wars, SInce the gangs seem to own the hive by and large
>>45921331True. That also means it would be a bunch of smaller gangers, so they can't really pose a threat if they ever became too successful
Bump for life
Alright guys, I'm back. Time to start fleshing out the mechanized regiments! Someone mentioned that the nobles might sponsor the purchase of armored vehicles, so are these regiments where they send their first born kids?
>>45923868Because they mostly do Siege Warfare, or "Hivecracking" as it were, and work along Knight Houses and the Praetorians or host world to manage the theater.
>>45923991The Hivecracking is just blowing a "strategic" hole in the side of the Hive for infiltration? or is it something different
I mentioned this in a way earlier thread, but if you guys write lyrics, I can write a piece of music. Maybe even perform it
>>45924213I'm writing a song now >>45923991>>45923868The only info we have the tanks is that they are few as they were assigned to Hua Yuan as an Administratum fuck up, and as result they take being a tank regiment very seriously and are very professional in the greater imperium sense, no flashy colors, no gang shit, very business like. They are considered uppity for this but also they tend to survive due to it. There is not really a Hua Yuanes way to drive a tank.
>>45924213first song to the tune of "blood upon the risers"About an Exterminator recruit rappelling into a hive on his first infiltration mission. The Veterans sing this in training to psych out new recruitsHe was just a rookie trooper and he surely shook with fright,He checked all his equipment and made sure his pack was tight;He had to sit and listen to those awful xeno roar,"You ain't gonna jump no more!"(CHORUS)Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,He ain't gonna jump no more!"Is everybody happy?" cried the Sergeant looking up,Our Hero feebly answered "Yes," and then they stood him up;He jumped into the night, his blinker armed, his static line was hooked,He ain't gonna jump no more.(CHORUS)Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,He ain't gonna jump no more!He counted long, he counted loud, he waited for the shock,He felt the wind, he felt the cold, he felt the awful drop,The slack from his line spilled out, and wrapped around his legs,He ain't gonna jump no more.(CHORUS)Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,He ain't gonna jump no more!The risers swung around his neck, connectors cracked his dome,Suspension lines were tied in knots around his skinny bones;The canopy became his shroud; he hurtled to the ground.He ain't gonna jump no more.(CHORUS)Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,He ain't gonna jump no more!The days he'd lived and loved and laughed kept running through his mind,He thought about the girl back home, the one he'd left behind;He thought about the medic corps, and wondered what they'd find,He ain't gonna jump no more.
>>45924564(CHORUS)Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,He ain't gonna jump no more!The ambulance was on the spot, the jeeps were running wild,The medics jumped and screamed with glee, they rolled their sleeves and smiled,For it had been a week or more since last a line had failed,He ain't gonna jump no more.(CHORUS)Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,He ain't gonna jump no more!He hit the ground, the sound was "SPLAT", his blood went spurting high;His comrades, they were heard to say "A hell of a way to die!"He lay there, rolling 'round in the welter of his gore,He ain't gonna jump no more.(CHORUS)Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,He ain't gonna jump no more!(slowly, solemnly; about half the speed of the other verses)There was blood upon the risers, there were brains upon the chute,Intestines were a-dangling from his Exterminators suit,He was a mess, they picked him up, and poured him from his boots,He ain't gonna jump no more.(CHORUS)Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,He ain't gonna jump no more!
>>45924590>>45924564As a soldier and aspiring Paratrooper this is highly entertaining
>>45924683one more song then, as someone whose college scholarship is about to get cut forcing me forcing join the national guard to pay for college, it's kinda gallows humor on my partThe Kroot, the Tau, Cultist, ‘NidWe shoot the sick, the young, the lame,Because the kills all count the same,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.Flying low across the trees,Pilots doing what they please,Dropping frags on crying grots,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.Tau in the open, making hay,But I can hear the gunships say,There'll be no Greater Good today"Napalm sticks to ‘nidsSee those Tau farmers over there,Watch me get them with a pair,Blood and guts just everywhere,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.I've only seen it happen twice,But both times it was mighty nice,Shooting Tau civilians planting rice,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.Napalm, son, is lots of fun,Dropped in a bomb or shot from a gun,It gets the gants when on the run,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.Drop some napalm on a Tau farm,It won't do them any harm,Just burn off their legs and arms,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.I've been told it's not so neat,To catch cultists burning in the street,But burning flesh, it smells to sweet,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.Artillery don't care a bit,Just as long as the pieces fit,When you stuff the bodies in a pit,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.Eighteen ‘nids in a No Fire Zone,Fleshborers in hand and going home,Last in line goes home alone,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.Valkyries flying in the sun,Killing cultists is lots of fun,Get one pregnant and it's two for one,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.Shoot civilians where they sit,Take some pictures as you split,All your life you'll remember it,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.Exterminators are all hard core,Blinkers and Las never are a bore,Throw those PSYOPS out the door,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.Gather ‘nids as you fly over town,By throwing corpses on the ground,Then grease 'em when they gather 'round,Napalm sticks to ‘nids.
>>45924840>National GuardI would rag on you, but it would all be out of jealousy.
>>45924564>>45924590>>45924840the originals if you are interestedSong 1https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9eybY9qFfYsong 2https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWgsdexkv18
>>45851515I have one question; with their tendency to loot things and strap them to their armor (I don't know if they actually use them, which is HERESY albeit smart) combined with the fact that there are *active chaos cults on their planet*, how the heck do these guys not get corrupted? I mean, the odds of one of them picking up gear that contains a daemon and wearing it home aren't that slim. They don't (so far as I know) have exceptionally strong faith to protect them or particularly rigorous pseudo-inquistorial commissars (I mean, those would have just ordered them to stop looting things). So how come there isn't mention of widespread heretical cults within the Exterminators?I suspect that many of the Exterminators, given the fact that there are active Khornate cults on their worlds amongst the gangers most likely to be recruited, their love for collecting trophies of slain foes and their obvious enthusiasm for killing as flashily as posssible, are under Khorne's sway.
>>45925449actual demon gear is super rare in the lore, and they fight these cultist constantly so they are unlikely to fall under their sway. The sheer size of Hua Yuan means the % of people in these cults is quite low, but yeah Hua Yuanese might fall a little easier then the average regiment.
>>45925449They primarily deal with Nids and genestealers. But yeah, probably more than a few turned to chaos
>>45925179were you the guy who made the napalm sticks to Nids thread?
>>45927087no but that did inspire it.
>>45927119desu baka senpai, it kinda defeats the purpose to write music if the song already has some. But I'll see what I can do.Which one do you like better?
>>45924377One anon suggested in the thread a while back that the richer nobles would sponsor the mechanized regiments buy potentially buying them new vehicles so that their first born wouldn't have to fight in a more dangerous force. Still sound good?
>>45927188you can just sing it. you don't need to write anything new to the tune, I think the first one matched the original better so it should be easier to do. I'm a writefag not a songwrite fag so it's all up to you
>>45927287I'm no singer, but I can compose music, so that was going to be my way of contributing. I feel you, man, you gotta do what you're good at. I just figured it'd be something fun to do
>>45927254mechanized like infantry transport or mechanized like tanks, because those are different things. Mechanized nobles as in troop transport makes sense. The Leman Russ guys are a special snowflake unit
>>45927323I'll try to write an anthem then, but it might be shite
>>45927331I'm editing the wiki now, so how would you describe Hivecracking? Doesn't need to be super extensive
>>45927417Anything you feel like writing. A folk song, a love ballad, some stupid bar song, anything
>>45927442Entrench around the dive and dug in, Sustained heavy weapons fire on one point in the hive to make a few large holes then The exterminator climb above the holes and prepare to rappel into them Then local arty launch (colored) smoke barrages at the points then all under cover of the smoke the Exterminators rappel in the hive to begin guerilla action and intelligence collection within the hive so the main assault of massed infantry can know where to assault easily
>>45927331>>45927254I'm not a fan of the Noble tanker regiments. I like the idea of the Hua Yuan regiments being a meritocracy on a good day, a lottery on a usual day, and a frantic push to fulfill a tithe on a bad one.Fresh guardsmen ussually go to a Line Infantry Regiment first, which are usually fire and forget. Those that show skill in a particular area or job are moved to a regiment that needs them. I've you've been in a infantry unit for a while that ussually means you're a stellar infantryman or you suck at everything else. Folks that would be good at being a tanker get to be tankers. The rich usually try to get their kids into a schola so they can be officers and commissars. The Scholas look for type A personalities, which are usually found in the rags to riches circles in the lower hives. So if anything nobles would push to get more richblood in command.
>>45927718I dunno, I don't see anything wrong with a bunch of prissy boys being incharge of transports
>>45927890>>45927718Duke Faggot pants favorite son is drafted so he buys that unit chimeras in hopes his boy survives has a basis in history
>>45927718Its not like the entire thing is made out of noble-blooded fools, but there's a higher number in there than any other regiment
>>45927718>>45927943I need some cultural quirks for the armored dudes, dude. Care to lay any fat ones on me?
>>45927442"Hivecracking" a form of siege warfare utilized by most armoured Hua Yuanese regiments. The optimal Hivecracking tactics are to encircle the hive in question and advance, utilizing fixed gun emplacements, mobile artillery, and armoured elements. Typically fixed artillery, either provided by the host planet, another Regiment, or by the sparce few artillery companies some Siege regiments have, and is used to highlight strategic weak points and draw fire from the advancing mechanized elements.The tanks and other wheeled and tracked assets usually harry defensive positions and attempt to create breaches to be utilized by Exterminators waiting in reserve. Destruction is often extremely precise and thoroughly calculated, so as to not invalidate any maps and layouts of the hive. Typically six breaches will be attempted to be made, six on around the sides and one in the center, either through insertion in the top or through tunneling efforts made by the Exterminators, mimicking the horrific "Seventh Wall Fall" event in Hua Yuan's history. The Exterminators then perform a "Flash and Clear" on a theater wide scale, Companies rushing into the breaches at intervals, so the enemy can't fortify any one position, then rendezvous in predetermined locations or an auxiliary location. When fighting enemies such as Tyranids the Exterminators will usually choose to utilize only two flanking breaches so as not to spread their numbers thin. The Armoured units stand in reserve and provide covering fire and will finish off enemies flushed out from the breach. Once the outer layers of the hive are secured they will usually close in, denying the enemy any escape and providing semi-permanent firebases or fully operational instillations for allied forces.
>>45928383>>45927620Thanks! I'll get right on this shit
>>45928260This is for the Leman Russ snowflakes>>45924377The guys who have troops transports are very similar to the line infantry, they just happen to have rides, I imagine they survive longer than line infantry so they have a slightly inflated rank for their positions which might lead to friction when dealing with other regiments. As they both survive and are of somewhat noble blood most officer corps would come out the mechanized infantry
>>45928495>The birth of a Hua Yuan heavy armored division was entirely by accident. A less-than-competent member of the Administratum assigned all of Hua Yuan's heavy armor to them, and as result they take being a tank regiment very seriously and are very professional in the greater imperium sense. No flashy colors, no gang shit, very business like. They feel like the Imperium had set out to give them this task, despite it being entirely an accident. They are considered uppity for this but also they tend to survive due to it. How's this?
>>45928820that sounds good
>>45928848Aight, I added the Hive cracking stuff too. Maybe one more little bit about quirks and call it a section?
>>45927890>>45927943>>45928260I think the big thing with the Hua Yuan regiments is that it's a true melting pot. Sure, the hive looks like a city where cultures mix and mingle, but it's actually highly stratified and segregated. The Hua Yuanese are exceedingly racist and even more so classist. The regiments are a true melting pot, where who you where is broken down and who you are is built up. The regiment culture is more important than where you came from.But if the majority want's richfag hardassed tankers then so is life.
>>45929050No it's okay arbites. I'm about to make a section or Penal Regiments. Good idea or no?If yes, then after that, we FINALLY get to fluff the exterminators more! Whoo!
>>45929050Definitely classist.The poorfags envy the richfags, the richfags don't want anything to do with the poorfags, usual stuff.Yeah I'd say racist but in denial as well.We do have quite the superiority complex over the Mainland before the handover. Not like that improved after the handover, except we can't feel superior economic-wise anymore
>>45929050The hard ass tankers are regular guys who get shit done, They are in Leman RussesThey richfags are in the The mechanized infantry not the armoured, and they aren't all rich they just are sponsored by nobles because a couple rich kids got drafted. They are just line infantry with wheels.I think you are mixing the 2 up because we are talking about both at the same time. I'll add the mechanized infantry to the wiki as a subset of line guard
>>45929324>GIB ERECTION MAINLAND IS WORST CHINAOn a serious note, I can't think of the future of Hong Kong without getting depressed. I hope somehow the Chinese government actually fulfills its treaty obligations.
>>45929324It must suck the Britbong fought to keep the Falklands but gave you guys up without a fight. I imagine if there was an election to stay British or independent you guys would have stayed in heartbeat.
>>45929411Mechanized infantry?Look man, you have some great ideas, then you have some not so great ideas. This is the latter. Exterminators have mechanized companies, pretty much everyone does. But a whole regiment? Dude we only got tanks by accident, and we only still get tanks because of Hivecracking and how they keep the Infantry alive better. A mechanized regiment is unnecessary, dude.
>>45929436>I hope somehow the Chinese government actually fulfills its treaty obligations[hollow laughter]>>45929444To be fair, it's harder to get your ass all the way from Britbong to China and go against the zerg-rushing PLA for one tiny city than to go against Argentina.Fuck, I'm getting off-topic here.
>>45929546they were brought up earlier in threads I'm just trying to keep everything alive. It's a lot like running while trying to carry water in your hands I'm trying justify this line in the wiki>As a result of the more practical tactical doctrine, Hua Yuan Armored units are primarily made up of light armor, such as several Chimera variants, modified Centaur AFVs, Cyclops RDVs, and occasionally Tauros when fighting in more open environments.
>>45929648it just sounds weird now that we have leman russes
>>45929648>Exterminator Armoured CompaniesThough truth be told that's a stupid line and can be removed. Makes no fuckin sense
>>45929697You're the only one saying leman russes dude, wtf
>>45929648Change whatever you want man
>>45929731>>45929883>>45929706>>45929648Someone wrote a thing in an old thread about a fuck up where the administratum sent Leman Russ and they were named specifically....and fuck it... I'm driving my myself insane over whether chimeras are tanks or are only Leman Russes tanks, I'm getting wierd and sleepy trying remeber threads I reread drunk a week and a half ago I honestly don't know. I don't want to fuck anything up. I won't touch the wiki tonight. I might break something>running with handfuls of water
>>45929970I added a section about all the heavy armor that the yuanese have is because of a administratum fuck up, so maybe IM the fuck up
>>45929648>>45929625http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Astra_Militarum_Vehicles_%28List%29Another anon here, throwing this up for reference. Things to consider. Hua Yuan atmosphere is not breathable, most of their combat is geared towards hive fighting, or cramped corridors. They have shitty supply lines, and rely on las weaponry. Shit needs to be simple to maintain, otherwise its probably broken down somewhere, stripped for parts, with homeless uncle Bastard Liu living in it.Somewhere beteween a mix of the Elysian drop troops/ krieg, in terms of crawling slow and lightly made.To that end, some suggestions, please correct me as im not overly familiar with the lore.Bike- yes. its made of wheels, an engine, and sheet metal.Tauros- Yes. its made of pipes, wheels, and an engine.Chimeras- likely. Simplest of the tracked vehicles.Again, just kinda playing this by ear, but imagining what can be fabricated in local shops, and not necessarily forgeworlds.
I'm leaving for a bit to enjoy some "mind enhancers" if we wake up tomorrow and there is a writfaggotry about snorting grots to gain ork waaagh field powers that's my fault and I'm sorry. Chimeras aren't tanks I've decided
>>45930299Within companies, absolutely. The bikes are used mostly in Recon companies.However we have Armored Siege Regiments as well and operate thusly >>45928383
Seriously guys, yay for penal regiment on wiki?
>>45930527Yeah, they are a pretty important part of Hua Yuan
>>45930779I guess we'll flesh the exterminators and penal next thread
>>45931202Wish Ricci was around so we could finish that shit up
>>45931202I guess we shouldn't just through the thread up after this one falls away
>>45931232Right? Time to go writefag while this thread dies. Somebody archive.
>>45931335I'll archive this is a moment
Woo! I get the last word!
>>45933786I fucking hate you. Get in the guard creation thread
