>Children born on the planet of Jopall incur a massive debt for their own care to the government, that they cannot even begin to pay until their adolescence. One of the most popular ways of paying off that debt is by enlistment into the Indentured Squadrons. The Jopall are unique in that they encourage individuality and ingenuity, which is rewarded with a small financial recompense, which of course helps in paying off their debts.

>The Jopall Indentured Squadrons Imperial Guard regiment are known for their marksmanship and their concern for money. Jopall is a peacefull agri world, whose citizens are born in debt to their government. Jopall citizens spend most of their adult life working to pay this debt. One way to fast track repayment is to join the Jopall Indentured Squadrons, and as such it is considered vitally important by members of the Jopall Indentured to keep an accurate tally of every foe killed, to be used later to argue the value they have given to the regiment.

>> No.13285818

>>13285811
>The Indentured squadrons fight defensively, conserving resources until the last minute. Even so, the underhanded tactics they employ can end up being rather expensive in the end. Squads may take it upon themselves to sabotage enemy units and supplies, and Jopall snipers will strike at targets of opportunity at any given moment. In one infamous incident during the 3rd War for Armageddon, a group of Jopall officers posed as traitors and delivered three Basilisk artillery pieces and a great deal of shells to an Ork Big Mek who had already captured several Imperial troop transports. As the proud Mek was parading the weapons to his Warlord, the Officers detonated explosives hidden on the guns, with just enough force to cook off the artillery shells, which wiped out a sixth of the Orks' artillery. The officers were stripped of their rank for the voluntary destruction of the three Basilisks, but they were very popular among the rest of the company.
