    I've finally settled on my Rogue Trader character, an Arch-Militant Imperial Guard captain. The GM has said I can garrison a company of troops on board our ship, but I can't decide which army: Elysian Drop Troops or Death Korps of Krieg.

    The rapid strike force of Elysians would be more useful than the slow-moving siege army that is the Death Korps, but the Death Korps is also much more badass.

    What say you, /tg/? Do I go for badassitude over usefulness? I mean, Elysians are pretty badass too, but they're no Death Korps.

    Elysians are cooler. Half of the DKoK's cool value comes from gasmasks, ridiculous prices, and a menacing name.

    Elysians are the balls-to-the-motherfucking-walls types who drop in with no artillery or armor support, mix it up at close range with a far superior foe (they are guardsmen, after all,), and do in hours what it would take the DKoK years to do.

    But I'm biased, so, you know, go ahead and ignore me.

    Is your GM the type to make you regret picking cool over useful?

    Death Korps would be more useful in boarding actions due to their superior skill in close-quarters combat. Their experience in hazardous environments would also make them more useful when exploring uncharted planets.

    Elysians are drop-troopers, which is a big plus, but they need the equipment to do their thing. Getting half a dozen Valkyries for them is going to take some work, as will 100 or so grav chutes.

    I would go with the Korps. Especially if the ship is equipped with a teleportarium.

    Where does your Rogue Trader get the connections necessary to keep a company of one of the finest regiments in the Imperium on board a ship when they should be fighting in any number of hotspots in the galaxy? I mean, I can see a contingent of the 304th Buttfuck Blades from Planet Derpsville on your ship, but if you get Kriegers, won't they mutiny the moment they realise there's a lot of downtime involved in this assignment?

    I don't get why people think the Death Korps are so amazing.

    They're badass because they are fearless motherfuckers who are quite willing to drawn the enemy in their dead, not for any sort of skills as warriors.

    I'd take Drop Troops in a second. They're easier to supply, better for the kind of missions you'll be doing, and won't madly rush any foe they see.

    I figured they'd be not unlike Detachment D-99 from IA4. An understrength force that's been dispatched on the ship instead of folded into another squad. Depending on what our Rogue Trader's goals are, maybe the company was sent to help colonize planets, kill xenos, or even make sure the Rogue Trader isn't up to no good.

    D-99 served an Inquisitor I think. Makes sense for the Inquisition to recruit veteran, elite troops. I'd say that it would be challenging for a Rogue Trader to acquire those, though.

    But not impossible. Perhaps the platoon was stationed on the ship when it was participating in actions alongside the Imperial Navy, and for whatever reason didn't have a chance to disembark before the ship went off on adventures or got isolated from the rest of the fleet through warp shenanigans.

    Actually the Elysians are the ones who are better at boarding actions since they are specially trained for such tasks due to all the pirates that are active near their homeworld

    Although the Death Korps might be more useful if say you had a large battle that took place on the outside of a large ship or something like that

    "Ah, finally. Our medicine shipment has arrived," the planetary governor said to his aide as he watched the Imperial Lander descend towards the landing platform. "Now, perhaps my little girl will live to see another Emperor's Day..."

    The governor and his aide made their way to the now-landed craft, the aide's auto-scribe already scribbling out a speech for the governor to give to his people. The bay door of the craft slowly slid open, and, much to the governor's dismay, out stepped half a dozen Guardsmen, wearing long trenchcoats and distinctive gasmasks.

    General tiamat smoked his Lho-stick silently as he stood before the company of men in those distinctive masks, his face red with fury. He slowly repeated himself to the Officer at hand, "One more time...Are you, or are you not, sure that this was marked a shipment of Baneblades?" The officer shifted slightly, his eyes glued to the dataslate. "Y-Yes sir...T-Twenty Baneblades Sir...The-" The general exploded on the man, his Lho-stick flying out of his mouth "THESE ARE KRIEGERS YOU DAMNED FOOL."

    The general reached down, and pulled another Lho-stick from his belt pouch, while walking over to the first, and most senior Krieger in the formation, marked as N-53, the General eyed the man, staring hard into the opaque mask that shielded the mans face. Brining his shaking hand up to his mouth, he reaches back down for his trusty lighter.

    N-53's swift motion startled the general, bringing his combi-melta to a shortened rifle salute, the Krieger deftly activates the weapon, releasing a small flame. Recovering quickly, the general lights his Lho-Stick with the flame, before taking a drag. "You Kriegers better be worth a baneblade each."

    The general turns to leave, when he hears a long rattling breath as the Krieger begins, his voice muffled behind his mask.


    The General's hand goes up to his Lho-stick after another drag, the shake had vanished.

    The governor watched the Kriegers from the balcony of his governor's mansion. The clones had spent the last week digging an extensive trench system through his beloved garden. His aide stood behind him, everpresent and ever-silent. "There's got to be something we can do with them..."

    He hadn't become planetary governor by being inflexible, and had quickly adapted to the 50 Death Korps veterans he'd received in place of medicine. Several squad medics had been sent into town to treat the sick (mostly through the liberal application of bone saws), while he'd simply ordered the rest to serve as his bodyguards. Thus the ruined tulips. "There's got to be SOMETHING we can do with them!" he shouted, pounding his fist against the railing.

    A loud knock at the door interrupted his thoughts. His aide handed him a sheet of paper, a briefing on the Rogue Trader he was meeting with. "A Rogue Trader, eh?" said the governor, a smile spreading across his face. He opened the door and greeted the trader with a firm handshake. "Rogue Trader...Jarvis, was it? Have I got a deal for you..."

    "WHERE ARE MY REINFORCEMENTS? THERE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE REINFORCEMENTS!" The Krieg sergeant shouted into his vox as he took cover in a foxhole alongside the remainder of his squad.

    "Sir!" the vox-master responded, "I think...reinforcements just arrived! I'll send a runner to you!"

    Several mortars exploded nearby, showering the sergeant with mud and blood. He poked his head over the edge of the foxhole, looking for the reinforcements. He wouldn't be able to take that hill without them. Through the smoke he spotted a lone runner making his way across the hellish killing field. Just one. A single runner.

    Several shots slammed into the mud just in front of the sergeant, forcing him to duck down. He raised his lasgun and fired some blind shots back in response. The other two soldiers he'd been sharing the hole with were dead, he noticed. There was nothing to it, he was going to have to take that hill, reinforcements or none.

    "SARGE! SARGE!" The runner was just a few yards away, pinned down in a shallow crater. "CATCH!" he shouted, flinging a green envelope to the sergeant, just before catching a slugga round right between the eyes. The sergeant caught the envelope and ducked deep into his hole as he tore it open. Inside was a colorful card, with some sort of hoofed animal on the front with a glowing red nose. Probably xeno. The sergeant opened the card, and read the message inside aloud, trying to understand. "Merry...Christ-mas?" he muttered.

    "MERRY KRIMMAST TO YA TOO, HUMIE!" the Ork Boy shouted as it jumped into the foxhole.

    Elysians would fit better for a Rogue Trader environment.

    Krieg troops aren't trained for orbital insertion. They aren't all Siege regiment Cannon Fodder, Krieg does field all sorts of other regiments like armor and mechanized heavy infantry regiments and the like, but they are generally all designed around extended brutal ground campaigns, not really the sort of stuff most Rogue Traders would be doing.

    The Kriegers tried to dig a ditch in the hallway of my ship today. Their shovels all broke.

    They made a pillow fort instead.

    To Ronius

    So I'm minding my business, monitoring panels and whatnot when some tech comes in and says that there appears to be minor structural damage near the EnPro and that this should not be happening since all we did since we left port were some routine mining operations.

    Thankfully I remembered that's what the Kriegers were guarding and volunteered to check it out.

    So I go down there and the Kriegers are all standing at attention like they always do. The only problem is that there appears to be a rather large hole in one of the walls which is also serving a Heavy Stubber nest.

    I inspect the hole and see that while there is no damage to any pipes or anything it appears that the hole has not been made by gradually chipping away at the wall.

    So I start asking around and this takes me a couple hours since I can't understand what they are saying due to their gasmasks. I tried to tell them to take them off or something but they wouldn't do it and I couldn't understand their responses due to the above mentioned gasmask thing. I thought about trying to remove their gasmasks for them but decided against it since those guys are fething creepy.

    Anyways after a while I was able to find out that they ran out of rations and apparently started eating the (adamantine) wall for nourishment.

    No I don't understand how that works.
    I also don't understand why you didn't have anyone give them new rations, I mean did you expect them to come up to you and ask for them or something?

    This might partly be my fault since I told you to have them guard the place but seriously, you were the one who told them specifically what part of it to guard so you should have known where to send food.

    Anyways we need to find a way to get rid of them, PERMANENTLY.

    - Jamio

    I don't mean killing them since we both know that won't end well for either of us.

    So on this ship there was us, right, and a small group of Kriegers, about 10 or 20 of them. We don't know what they were doing there; we were supposed to get Elysians and these Kriegers popped up instead. We kept them on; not like they'd leave anyway.

    The Kriegers mostly kept to themselves. Nobody could understand what the fuck they were saying through those gasmasks, and when they weren't standing around at attention, they sometimes split off into mini Krieger groups and had conversation. I never really cared what they talked about, probably trenches or something.

    One time I had the misfortune of walking by one of these Krieger conversations to have my ears suddenly assaulted by the most frightening sound I have ever heard. I guess in some way you could call it laughing, but it was like some mix between a howler monkey and the wailing of a dying grox. Rooted to the spot, I turned to face the Krigers only to see them all staring at me, laughing.
    Those fucking lenses all staring at me while that horrible sound just kept going and going...

    I never wanted to get off a ship so fast in my fucking life.

    Ok, so here's the deal: I'm a Swedish military officer on a peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan and yesterday our replacements were supposed to arrive. There were supposed to be 150 Swedish medics, translators, regular soldiers, etc. all briefed on the cultural differences, political situation, etc. That was not what we got. First of all, there were a lot more of them, second they were all wearing gasmasks and trenchcoats. I haven't been able to figure out what they're saying yet due to the gasmasks and a funny accent, but they do not look like peacekeepers to me. I think they may be Kriegers. What do I do? Help me out here, we're supposed to to ship out next week and I don't feel comfortable leaving the mission in their hands, not with all the trench-digging, bolter-emplacements, etc. It looks as if they've come here to kill anything they see and expect anything they see to try to kill them!

    Excerpts from the personal log of Voidmaster Emil Godwin, Master-Pilot and First Mate aboard the Dauntless-class Cruiser, "Boundless Cunning".

    M41.20464: Still in orbit around Agaeas Prime. Crew getting restless; it has now been two weeks. Our illustrious Lord-Captain Sigmund Jorn Vendigroth assures us that the negotiations for our shipment of rare ore is almost complete, and that without his expertise in commerce, this venture would have taken even longer. I am reserving judgement, but thank the Emperor we'll soon be away from this filthy hole of a planet. The conflict between the Guard and the orks ripped this place a new one; nothing to do but stare at bombed out buildings and fall into those bloody trenches every five minutes. It seems like they spent more time digging those damned holes than they did fighting the orks.
    Ending here; receiving request for pickup from Agaeas, am needed on the lighter.

    M41.20466: Away from Agaeas, finally. Back in the warp, we surveyed our new acquisition. Sigmund actually did well; we received a full shipment of a twenty sealed plasteel crates of ore. The crew are overjoyed, as they've just heard our next destination is Caresend, a pleasure world reknowned for it's alcohol and 'hospitable' locals. Commander Mordechai made a funny little noise when we told him, and has had to be forcibly sedated for his own safety and the safety of others. The crates are time-locked, oddly, but Explorator Thale has assured the captain that the lock will release itself in a couple of days. I just hope they don't turn out to be full of grox wrapped in tinfoil, again.
    >> Anonymous 11/05/09(Thu)08:11 No.6578084
    M41.20469: Today has been.. Eventful. I have absolutely no idea how to describe what I've just seen, but I suppose I have to start somewhere, so.. The crates opened today, at four thirty PM ship-time. The whole of the old crew was there; Mordechai, Thale, even Anastasia poked her head in. Oh, and Sigmund was there of course, grinning his head off as the chronometers on the first crate ticked down the seconds. As the countdown hit zero, Thale swept forwards and struck the activation rune on the side of the crate. There was a hiss of depressurization, a gust of stale air, and the front of the crate lowered itself slowly down to the ground.. And then there was a shout from the darkness, and down the makeshift ramp marched a group of men in trenchcoats and gasmasks. There were about twenty of them in total, marching in perfect synchronicity, and they just waltzed right up to Sigmund and snapped to attention! Like they were waiting for him to order them around or something, I guess. Anyway, we open up the rest of these crates, and wouldn't you know it? Each and every single one of them has another twenty of these bloody toy soldiers living inside of it!

    Sigmund sputtered out a demand for an explanation, "What is the meaning of this?!" or some other ridicuously arrogant Rogue Trader spiel, and the man he was staring at ripped off a salute so crisp I could swear I heard a little crack of thunder. "SIR, KRIEG STAND READY, SIR! WHAT ARE SIR'S ORDERS?" he bellowed. Strange accent. Didn't help that he was wearing a mask either, I suppose, but he made up for it by being ridiculously fracking loud. Sigmund obviously thought so too, as he muttered an "Er, right. Er.. Very good, nothing for now. At ease." and fled the bay as quickly as possible. I was the last out, and I swear to the Emperor himself I saw the 'leader' scratching his head. I don't think they actually know what 'At ease' means..
    >> Anonymous 11/05/09(Thu)08:11 No.6578090
    So, long story short, now we've got a bunch of creepy-as-frack gas-masked Kriegers wandering around in our cargo bays, just sort of.. Milling about, staring at each other. I hope Sigmund figures out what to do with them before too long, before one of them blows a hole in my goddamned ship.

    M41.20470: Still trying to decide what to do about the Kriegers. Thale suggested dumping them onto the nearest habitable planet, but Mordechai is demanding that we keep them, insisting that our own private army is a fantastic opportunity. I can see his point, but I'm still edgy about having that many lasguns idle so close to the engine room. I guess it's all moot, seeing as we're still in the middle of warp space.

    M41.20471: Sigmund has finally cracked and put Mordechai in charge of the Krieg. I feel a little safer now knowing that they're at least under a competent commander, and Mordechai at least knows what he's doing. Still, I'm going to keep an eye on the creepy little buggers until we're clear of this. Something about those eyeless gasmasks gives me the jibblies. For his part, Mordechai is overjoyed with his new assignment, and almost immediately took to striding around the cargo bay drilling the Krieg mercilessly. He has also begun work on some sort of makeshift Commissar's hat thing. I keep telling him that I'm pretty sure they shoot you for impersonating a Commissar, but he won't listen to a word I say. It doesn't even have the right number of skulls.

    M41.20474: I've been reviewing the security recordings for the last few days, and I've just noticed something. Some of the Krieg have now been standing at attention for more than three days. They haven't moved an inch. Do they.. Do they sleep like that? Wanted to ask Mordechai, but he is preoccupied with his new duties. He has set the Krieg to transforming their cargo bay into a makeshift bunker-barracks complex using the materials from the crates they arrived in. Mordechai continues to sequester himself in his cabin, working on that stupid hat of his. It now has a full size imperial Aquila attached to the top, which makes it fall over. I passed him in the corridor earlier discussing the merits of stabilizers with Thale.

    M41.20476: Visited the bays again today on routine inspection. The Krieg have completed their bunker, which looks like it could stop a lascannon; it bristles with spikes, imperial aquilas, sandbags and weapon emplacements all over the shop. What's more, they've inexplicably managed to procure some earth from somewhere, and have set up a series of earthworks and trenches to hide behind. It's strange; now that they have their trenches, they seem almost.. Happy. Didn't stay for long, though, as every time I asked about the earth one of them kept waving his gun around and trying to talk. It sounded like someone was trying to flush an angry ork down a toilet, but I think he said "Found it.".

    M41.20477: Earth the Krieg 'found' was from the Terrarium on G-Deck. Thale is annoyed. Apparently, some of those plants were irreplaceable.

    M41.20480: Mordechai unveiled his hat for the first time today. I have to admit, it is actually pretty damn impressive; a good foot tall at the peak, constructed of black grox-hide, with two suspensor-systems built into the side to support the enormous weight of the (grand total of) three imperial Aquilas (two small, one full-sized), three full feet of golden braid, and seventeen silver skulls. A cluster of Krieg now follow him at all times, wherever he goes. If he orders one away on some errand, the next time he passes a knot of Krieg soldiers doing.. whatever the hell it is they do, one will seemingly gravitate to him as if he were a rogue planet.

    M41.20485: The Krieg have started spreading out to the rest of the ship. If I didn't know better, I would swear to god that they were reproducing, somehow. Still, we're out of warp space now, and Sigmund wants to investigate a nearby planet before we continue. He is taking some Krieg with him to try them out as bodyguards.

    M41.20486: Sigmund is back. Didn't enjoy it. Apparently, Krieg wouldn't stop digging trenches everywhere. For their part, the returning Kriegers are being welcomed as heroes for putting the stamp of good Imperial trenches on strange xenos soil.

    M41.20489: Mordechai's hat grows ever more elaborate. I begin to fear for his sanity. He has incorporated a sundial.

    M41.20493: Krieg have apparently raided another terrarium for earth. Have yet to find out what they did with it.

    M41.20494: Woke up to find boltgun emplacement in my bathroom.

    M41.20495: Mordechai missing. Suspect he may have gone native, as there is now an extra Krieg soldier sporting a quite phenomenally ridiculous hat.

    I like the concept that once the Krieg are on the ship, they slowly reproduce somehow. At first you don't realise because they are all identical, but one day you decide to watch the security feeds relentlessly. At one point 9 Kriegsman cluster together in one of the trenches they've made, as if exchanging conversation. This continues for almost 7 hours, although it is not inherently unusual given their propensity to stay at attention for days.

    Then, you spot it. As the Kriegsman exit the trench, despite no further Krieg ever joining their group, there are now 10 of them.

    The helmets are French Firefighter helmets that were issued to the infantry in WW1 once supplies were an issue.

    The greatcoats are cut and coloured similarly to the French trench infantry uniforms from WW1.

    The gasmask is based off a French Pattern.

    Two commissars who grew up in the Schola Progenium together but split apart on separate postings after graduation happen to meet up together after several years.

    "...you were saddled with a Krieg regiment? My heart goes out to you, Luca. It must be deathly dull - I mean, with such a humourless and mechnical mass you don't even get the satisfaction of field executions."

    "Actually, Genwin, it's a real hoot!"

    "Oh, pull the other one, it's got Laud Hailers on"

    "No, I'm serious. For instance, where did your regiment have its last Adventure Training component?"

    "...urgh, don't remind me. Mountain Climbing. On Valhalla. It was so cold, you had to blast yourself with a hand-flamer just to get out your sleeping bag in the morning."

    "Well, we were on the beaches of Icthus."


    "Didn't you know? Every time a Recuperation season comes up on rotation, they're begging command to put down on an ocean world. Kriegers just LOVE the beach. They toddle off down to the shore with their spades, and build... well, sandcastles. Admittedly ones so elaborate that you can drive Chimeras through the gates and make out the faces of saints on the wall friezes, but still. And then the tide comes in and washes it all away, so they get to do it all over again. It's really cute watching them. They're so content, I can lean back under a parasol with a sangria and have a nice, pretty girl from the Fujika War Widows, who are also in our division give me a massage."
