Even if it's just a small lull in between battle, or the time in between victory and the next conflict, let's see a few pictures where there's time for the little things.

Do guardsman work rotational duty?
Like 3 years in a warzone, 3 years light duty on an agriworld.
Do guardsman get leave?

>> No.48968359

Sometimes. To all.

Kreigers don't care, Catachans would go insane.
Plus it depends on fhe sector's activity, the general in question, projected tithes..

I'd guess at the least they rotate into low-activity arenas now and then.

This reminds me of the excerpt from one the Cain novels where they're defending a Schola, and Cain remarks about how completely unnerving it was to see 15-year-old Sisters initiates in Sororitas power armor acting like stone-cold Sisters of Battle one moment and murderfucking heretical forces, and then doing a complete 180 and acting like teenage girls and flirting with the male Cadet-Commissars under his command the next.

Too perfect.

>> No.48973648

Planetary Defense Forces get rotational duty, a salary and maybe even a retirement plan if the home world is wealthy but being in the Imperial Guard usually means you've been conscripted or assigned to a decades long campaign that no one expects to come back from alive. Of course there are exceptions to everything, for example space flight can take years so plenty of time for R&R if the top brass allows it and of course there's always a chance the campaign will be won in your life time, in which case you may get to retire at home or be given a slice of land on the newly acquired territory.

>> No.48975921

Writing aside, the Cain stories make the soldiers of the imperium very human.

You tend to forget that not only men and women fight in their wars, but boys and girls.

>> No.48976408

Jeah, Cain novels are in a weird spot for me. I enjoy the fuck out of them because it makes the world of WH40K suddenly feel like a real world, still grim, but this time with human glances in in it, with logical decisions and I love the plays with tropes. On the other hand, some of the writing style things make me insane, like the footnotes repeating for the 18. time that kloms are kilometers, that he's from an unidentified Hive World, and that Jurgen stinks. "Of course, if I only knew how much trouble that would mean, I wouldnt have done it" x 10

I'm slightly rambling, but I hope you get my point.

I believe the standard in the Guard is 20 years, then you're eligible to retire with honors, a stipend, and a small holding. I believe they'll also do the same for units that have been rendered so far below strength that it's easier to start over than to rebuild -- congratulations, you just became settlers and PDF. Keep your entrenching tool and lasrifle, here's your complimentary wife/husband/grox.

Travel times and the time it takes for the bureaucracy to get moving, isn't there also a small chance of showing up to find out the war you were sent to fight is over? They'd just send you to the nearest one still going, of course.

Though I am amused at the idea of an IG regiment that has been active for years and never saw combat because they always show up after the conflicts are over.

As far as /tg/ fandom-fanon goes, Lofn's Pacification powers greatly works on animals and Tyranids. Basically she has the Animal Friend perk.

I remember reading about a whole IG company with tanks and all that got lost in the Warp and arrived 200 hundred years later,after the Imperium lost the war... caught the motherfuckers with their pants down and reconquered the planet.

It's hard to imagine a company conquering a planet of sheep, much less a planet of heretics

>> No.48988556


Sci-fi writers have no sense of scale, doubly so for no-gunz Brits like GW.

That's why you have books like the Taros campaign talking about how the loss of about 30,000 men is a crippling defeat for the Imperium, or the most recent Cain book where a few Brigades worth of guardsmen are written about as salvation from a Tau invasion.

>> No.48988580

Did you forget that one Space Marine on a feudal world can conquer it? Mary Sue over-the-top wankery or not, I think you misunderstand how varied the planets of the Imperium are in terms of tech level.

tanks versus cultists in the napoleonic era is going to end quickly.

You don't need to cover the planet though. You just need to control the important part(s) of it, which is really just the space port, or the capital if they don't have one.

Original anon here. I think I don't remember the right word from the text,because when I wrote company I though that was the term for about a few hundred thousand IG guys with command squads,a bunch of tank units and so. I apologize for the misundertanding.

Now I'll eject myself from the closest air chute. May the Emperor have mercy upon my soul.
