>> No.29945985

I've been meaning to ask you all what you think of this, it's a bit of homebrew I've been doing for my own Guard regiment, based off an Only War game I'm playing in currently:

Tessian Grenadiers


"They really think they are Astartes, just don't tell them, it would ruin their morale, they are really into the whole thing. Watch them even try to fire Heavy Bolters in one hand, it is hilarious."
- Sargeant Pailus, on the Tessian 14th Heavy Grenadiers


Tessius has had a long history of warfare, during the Age of Strife it was rumored to be a beautiful almost garden-like world, but it was at some point twisted and corrupted into the radioactive swamp that it is to this day. The reason behind this tragic change has been lost to the Imperium, though some members of the Adeptus Mechanicus claim to have discovered signs of ancient virus bombing in the soil and rock.

As the Great Crusade came into full swing Tessius was re-discovered by an exploratory fleet of the Dusk Raiders Legion, those who in time would become known as the Death Guard, the world itself seemed fairly benign from space and only a few human tribes of primitives still inhabited the world. This assessment proved woefully inaccurate when the Dusk Raiders landed and found a planet that was hostile to most if not all life, immense thunder storms raged across the skies bringing great monsoon rains, native reptiles grew to well over the size of two Astartes. For two years the Dusk Raiders fought both native tribes and local flora and fauna for the fate of the world, but managed to achieve victory, planting the flag of the burgeoning Imperium on the planet and the Sector. Immediately the remaining human tribes were introduced to the light of the Emperor and the Imperial Creed.

>> No.29946007

>>29945985
Tessius itself remains dangerous, though the native creatures are often culled and large portions of the swamp is continuously pumped dry by the Mechanicus. Special mention must be made about the Tessian Swamp-Drake. Originating from the more common variety of marsh reptiles, the highly venomous Swamp-drakes have since been identified as a stable, true-breeding ab-race by the Magi-Biologii of the Adeptus Mechanicus. As the apex predator of the wetlands the Swamp-drakes have been known to grow to immense proportions. A cunning hunter, the snake like creature is an ambush predator, lying in wait beneath the fetid waters, often for hours at a time, until an opportunity presents itself.

Among the lower ranks of the processing stations the Swamp-drake has taken on mythic properties and rumours are abound of Swamp-drakes making their way up into the cities through the massive refinery drainage pipes to make off with unlucky adepts and workers before retreating back to the swamplands.

The official badge of the Tessian Guard regiments, the Swamp-drake features on most regimental heraldry, from the drake-skull pin issued to every trooper when he receives his uniform, to the tailored reptilian leather cloaks worn by officers

>> No.29946030

>>29946007


The Adeptus Mechanicus have since Tessius' induction into the Imperium maintained a presence on the planet, due mainly to the raw materials created by the planets specific make up. Swamps and marshes covered over eighty percent of the planet’s surface and this coupled with the its plentiful plant life produced favourable conditions for the large scale harvesting of certain gasses, usable in the production of high grade promethium. These same conditions that enabled harvesting also made usual hive building unsuitable. Instead massive Mechanicus harvesting plants were quickly established and settlements built around the plants to house the native labour force needed to man said operations. These townships have since grown to become the main population centres of the world.

The high mortality rate among the small population and the importance of the raw materials harvested, have resulted in Tessius having its manpower tithe lessened. The Tessian troops are now recruited solely from the planets schola progenium, Victory Rock. Though small, these regiments are afforded specialized training in both explosives and asymmetrical warfare tactics to make up for their lack of numbers. The Victory Rock schola was built on the site of the final battle for Tessius and has since been in operation ever since. Harsh discipline is enforced by the adepts as well as returned veteran Guardsmen serving as drill-abbotts.

Tessian Grenadiers in the Spinward Front

During the early days of strife within the Periphery only two regiments of Tessian Grenadiers were deployed and were stationed within what would become the Spinward Front and thus were already on the front lines when the Ork invasion came. The subsequent betrayal of Duke Severus XIII was taken by the Tessian Regiments with a stoic resignation. Almost immediately, the 7th and 12th Regiments found themselves thrown into conflict between the Orks and Separatists. While their zeal and ferocity on the battle field was to be commended, the small regiments were unable to keep up with the battlefield attrition.

Between the Margin Crusade’s increasing demands and the war effort already present in the Periphery, the military capabilities of the Calixis Sector were already stretched to the breaking point, and little more could be drawn from Segmentum reserves or neighbouring sectors. Nonetheless, Tessius dug deep to answer the call of its besieged neighbour and were able to deploy an additional regiment. At present, the Tessians form the smallest contingent of Calixis-born Imperial Guardsmen in the Periphery, and despite new forces inbound, it seems unlikely that will change any time soon.

The Tessian 14th Heavy Grenadiers Regiment
“Devil Drakes”

The Tessian 14th is a newly forged regiment and recently deployed to the Spinward Front, but despite reports of the desperate struggle for Imperial dominance have expressed nothing but eagerness to meet the enemy in battle. They seem particularly driven to oppose traitors and heretics, perhaps to help erase the stain their world has born since the end of the Heresy.

The 14th are currently led by Lieutenant-Colonel Sethekan Arak'ees, who has commanded the regiment for the last three years as they travelled through the warp to this sector. Lieutenant-Colonel Sethekan Arak'ees has served the Imperium with distinction, though has shown an odd sense of care for his men and to favor unothadox tactics. Despite this Maverick attitude, or perhaps because of it, it seems the men of his command would die for him

The same thing happens in every game with explicit player ranks / chain of command.

Rogue Trader and Traveller as also notorious for having these problems in some groups.

Let's face it, a lot of people play RPGs for escapism and for some of them its escape from feelings of being powerless. The minute the game introduces and enforces realistic authority situations these players start to act out if they are not the person with authority because it's bringing their source of anxiety into the game. Spaceship based games are the worst for this in my experience however any modern era game were they players are not THE LAW can result in this too. The minute the cops get called on them for acting like a bunch of primitive murderhobos its a count down until players like this snap.

In over a decade of being in RPG groups I have only ever been in one group that didn't have at least one if not more players like this. Ironically it was a group with mostly people that I didn't know. I think us not being friends is why we didn't take it personally.

>> No.29946265

>>29946230

Maybe, but it resulted us in having to go on a rescue mission into the bowels of the ship, now without any extra equipment because the Commissar decided to pull a gun and then go all, "I'll be back!" on the ship's captain, which leads me to believe that if we manage to do our job well enough coming back might mean finding ourselves facing a group of armed men with lasguns and autocannons.

It's probably just because of how Only War is set up. You have your normal specialists in the form of Weapon Spec, Heavy Gunner, Operator, and the Medic. On top of this, you have the Sergeant, which assumes a higher ranking position from just being a sergeant. Of course, this doesn't have to happen, but for most groups, I'd say this would be the norm.

From those five, you have the support specialties, which is where more of the authority will start to crop up most likely. I'm talking about the presence of Storm-troopers, Commissars, and Tech-Priests. These guys are outside of the normal ranking structure, or might even have more authority than a Sergeant (Which is most of the time).

Honestly, becoming assblasted because you aren't in a position of authority is something you'd need to talk to your group about to prevent it from becoming a big issue. Funny thing though, playing a game about being lowly guardsmen when you have a problem with authority... whew, talk about conflicting interests.

I have a question about ranks inside the guard.

I always thought Commissars were outside the normal ranks of the military. As in, they can't lawfully give orders to troops unless they have specifically killed their commanding officer and are only acting as a temporary commander until the rank can be filled again. I thought commissars with actual military ranks were fairly rare, and people like Gaunt of Gaunt's Ghosts were the exception rather than the rule.

I always assumed that commissars where basically ordered to chillax and remain aloof until they saw cowardliness, incompetence, or heresy, then to come crashing down like the God Emperor himself and put an end to it by any means necessary. I also assumed that, while their orders came from much higher up than the people they would be serving with, their orders would also include a "you will take orders from X sergeant unless he is summarily executed by you, in which case you will take orders from his replacement".

How wrong am I?

Commissars are out yet in the military ranks of the imperial guard.

They can lead troops into battle and can be lead by guard officers or even lead them.

Some can be out going and forward. Rooting out cowardliness and incompetence or they can be passive like you said.

In truth commissars are the political officer take to an extreme point. They're given massive authority and autonomy to ensure the moral stay high and make sure a regiment is loyal and in fighting shape. They're taught to give rousting speeches and take a hard look at moral.

They're an odd lot really.

Aside from their proscribed duties, commissars are an alternate rank structure. They are usually assigned an equivalent rank to the commanding officer of the division they're attached. However, assuming that everyone is performing as they should, the commissar is subordinate to the CO. Basically if a commissar is attached at the company then he is the equivalent of a captain, but only assists the actual captain while performing his commissariat duties. Should the captain die or be incapacitated, the commissar is the commanding officer until a new one can be found.

Our squad has a psyker who loves pushing his powers. This goes about as well as you would assume and he is often rolling the psychic phenomenom table.

We are getting attacked by some random deathworld beasties and his powers go haywire (again) at this point the gm tells us that there was one more beastie which had snuck up behind us... But after seeing the weird shit the psyker was doing the beastie decided to go find something easier to eat.

This encouraged the psyker to push his powers more causing yet another phenomenom. And then he had to use his handler to beat him up, thus getting rerolls until he rolled something that wasn't perils of the warp... Daemonic mask! Well, that at least is just one point of corruption (and permanent wary looks from rest of the guardsmen...) but it also gave him FEAR which drove off yet another beast.

...By failing his psychic powers the character drove off 2 out of five beasts that we were fighting against.

Ok, so, to start off, some background.

I'm a senior at university, and part of a college gaming group. I'm a regular GM, along with several of my friends, and we are all graduating in May. So, we need to train some new GM's for next year (when we aren't here anymore). One of the candidates wanted to run Only War.

My group of friends is known for producing outlandish, insane, ludicrously fun, and outright strange games. At the end of this year, we are going to drunkenly record our various stories, and post them to /tg/ in an orgy of laughter. It shall be glorious.

Anyways, we decided to collaborate and give this new GM a taste of insanity. And thus the "Extra Billy Smith's Boys" were born. We ran through regiment concepts for days, until someone suggested "appalachian hillbillies".

So, without further ado, our cast of characters.

>> No.29968872

>>29968616

(please excuse me, I'm trying to cook food for our Dark Heresy game as well as record this)

Cast of Characters
Billy Bud Commissar: Our party's commissar. Nominally in charge of the party, Billy Bud is the loosest of cannons. He don't play by no rules, exceptin' the Emprah's rules. He is vitriolic best buds with Paw, who he went to Schola with.

Paw: Paw is a veteran Stormtrooper, and a grumpy old man. He and Billy Bud were captains of rival rugby teams at Schola (Commissariat candidates vs. Stormtroopers) and developed a relationship akin to Orks - my biggest foe is my best friend. Paw likes huntin' for dur, shootin' cultists, and drinkin' moonshine.

Jebediah Lee: The drunken, unwashed lout in charge of driving around the party Chimera, Peggy. Jeb has a taste for hard rock (and a very loud set of speakers), a knack for unsuccessfully flirting with the women of the Imperial Guard, and an absolute fondness for Peggy.

Peggy: Peggy is the party Chimera. She's painted entirely Mossy Oak green, with a Hunter's Orange turret and a black autocannon. She's got a pair of Truck Nutz hanging off the back, a rebel flag license plate, and a penchant for going off of jumps. The party has installed a still in the troop compartment (for making more shine).

Gunner: The party's heavy gunner, he's in charge of handing out autocannon-induced death to the various enemies our party comes up against. He's played by a pretty shaky roleplayer, so he's still working on getting a personality.

Billy Witch-Doctor: Billy is the party psyker. He makes chikkin stew, calls upon the Great Chicken to smite his foes, and will not do anything except Push his powers. This is probably going to be his downfall.

And our newest member, Enginseer Willy-Joe. Also known as Rev'rend Fix-it, or Tech-Pastor, he calls upon the name of the Lawd Emprah to keep Peggy running, and evangelize to the unwashed masses.

Now, on to the stories.

As a note, this is probably the most roleplay-heavy Only War game that will ever be run. We speak entirely in character for the whole session, accents and all. There is no out-of-combat rolling, only roleplay. Having known each other for so long, we can play off of each other perfectly, and our sessions are an absolute blast. I'm really going to miss everyone next year, and I'm dreading sitting down at a D&D game, and looking across the table at an Elven ranger, Dwarven fighter, and a human cleric of Pelor. These past 4 years have spoiled me.

It's a cool concept for a game 1/3 groups will be entirely incapable of playing without some form on intra-party conflict generated by either table politics, the setting itself or some unholy combination of the two.

That image bothers me, I mean its clearly supposed to be a catachan unit, or at least some ork hunters, on patrol but heres this idiot shouting bloddy murder, he should be ending the same way commisars do in Catachan hands

He is either an officer or a sergeant. Catachan officers lead from the front so he is shouting and swearing at the pitiful excuses for guardsmen under his command to get off their collective arses and charge at the enemies like they are supposed to. (Go read how Colonel Straken leads his troops.)

Besides, it's not that they'd kill every single commissar that serves with the Catachan or Armageddon Ork hunters. Just the ones who try to execute half the regiment for not having clean boots or something.

I did think about that but instead we just have a gun on him at all times. I didn't want to shoot a team member in our second battle. Besides, we are liikely to lose characters anyway so might as well give him a chance to go down in a blaze of glory (likely on the next time he pushes his powers.)

We were playing Mordian Iron Guard because one of the players wanted to (based entirely on their uniforms), and we didn't get a tank because we were in a hive, and couldn't physically get down the street in it.

Its a combination of

>A huge amount of manpower that can outnumber any force but tyranids and Orks by a factor of ten with ease
>excellent firepower. Even the lasgun, as much as we joke about it, has a chance to kill Carnifexes and Terminators.
>Access to a huge pool of special and heavy weapons. They get access to almost every long range weapons Marines get, but they can take far more of them.
>Waves of tanks that can outnumber any other factions armor with ease.
>A wide variety of artillery, specialist, and air support, allowing them to tackle a wide variety of problems.
>Good ol' fashioned grit and determination.

What holds them back though is general incompetence in the high command, incredible amounts of beurocracy, and a reluctance to change. Its been shown time and again that when the IG get a competent commander like Solar Macarius, they can be almost unstoppable.

Many apologies to the elegan/tg/entlemen in this thread about not continuing the story of the "Extra Billy Smith's Boys". We had a session of Dark Heresy this afternoon, and it was pretty intense.

I'll continue the writeup this evening at work, while watching the super bowl.
