Catachan Snipers - "The Ligar Scorpions"

It is not just the Ratlings that are trained to hit a target the size of a credit chip from miles away. Some of the Catachan contingent make expert snipers.

From birth on their Death World, Catchans are trained to use weapons and have to undergo regular target practice just to survive on their home planet. One of the smaller animals that infest their jungles is the Ligar Scorpions.

These scorpions are about the length of a thumbnail and are coloured to match the background of the trees they normally spend most of their time hugging, lying in wait for their prey. They are patient hunters that actually wait for one of the other hundred odd species to run up the trunk of the tree by them before viciously striking out with their poisonous barb, instantly paralyzing their prey.

The Ligar Scorpion squad act very much like their namesake - they are able to conceal themselves for long periods of time waiting for the right time to strike.

Ratling Snipers - "The Wasps"

The Wasps pack quite a little sting. Ratling snipers, assuming you are able to feed them and keep them in drink and out of the stores, can make outstanding marksmen.

The Wasps have worked with the regiment for many years. Able to make their way into the smallest of hidey holes they are able to hit the enemy from afar and with complete surprise, all with pinpoint accuracy.

Tank Crew

There are times when the might of the Imperial Vehicle is just not enough. Sometimes that Chimera or Leman Russ may "brew up" and the crew inside need to escape and make their own way back to safety.

Each member of the tank crew is armed at all times and they are prepared to fight for their lives. If they can return to the holding area they may be able to crew up any spare vehicles that are being repaired or worked upon and get back into the fight.

Scout Sentinels - Badger Unit

The Badgers form part of the recon arm of the regiment.

The venerable old sentinels are adept at getting in and out of the smallest places unseen and thus can provide valuable intelligence for the rest of the army.

Servitors

Without these the main lifting and shunting of ammunition, food and other supplies simply would not happen.

Grey Knights - Squad Talnoc

Noone quite knows why the Grey Knights are in the sector but they have appeared on the battlefield with the regiment on at least two occasions.

Squad markings indicate their leader is Talnoc

Army on Parade - 001

I am slowly getting round to actually having a photograph of pretty much all my models that I have. I thought it might be useful for me to post them up on here a few blocks at a time.

Stormtroopers - "Ash Wolves"

The Ash Wolves were on secondment to the regiment. Usually operating out of the Saecarro sector they were brought in to investigate some unusual signals in the deserts on Vorix 6

Stormtroopers - "Red Serpents"

The Red Serpents have been attached to the regiment for some time now. They are typically used for deep insertion behind enemy lines.
