Segmentum Solar: SM & IG forces known?

Hi all!

I'm interested in the Holy Terra (or around) and Segmentum Solar defence forces.

I know that The Solar Sector is guarded by Battlefleet Solar, the mightiest Battlefleet of the Imperial Navy (Lexicanum reference).

But what I want to know is what Astartes Chapers and Imperial Guard Regiments operate mainly. This excludes the Grey Knights and Inquisition forces because they operate everywhere in the Emperor's Galaxy.

Astartes Chapters:
The most important as everybody knows is the Legion VII (Imperial Fists).
Anyone know other chapters dedicated to operate at Segmentum Solar or the Sector Solar?

Imperial Guard:
Exist any regiment of Imperial Guard dedicated to operate manly in the Segmentum Solar or the Sector Solar?
Does The Holy Terra have some planetary defence force similar to the planetary guard of other Imperial Planets (the main source of recruits for the Imperial Guard). Does have his own Imperial Guard regiment/s?


Thanks in advance.

A Segmentum is really pretty big. Even if Solar is the "smallest" one.

Yes.

The same is true for Space Marines and Imperial Guard. They operate everywhere. PLus you forgot to mention the Adeptus Mechanicus, Mars and a couple of other important Forge Worlds are in the Segmentum Solar.

For a list of planets in this Segmentum see for example here:
http://wh40k.lexicanum.de/wiki/Kateg...9#.UAqWCqD3qf4
or
http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Cate...r#.UAqWO6D3qf4

So you already have Armageddon, Catachan and Necromunda in this segmentum. Check what forces fought in the wars for Armageddon, then you'll have a partial list of who operates here.

Then you can check what links to Segmentum Solar:
http://wh40k.lexicanum.de/wiki/Spezi...r#.UAqWuKD3qf4
or
http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Spec...r#.UAqW-KD3qf4

I am not going to fish out all Astartes chapters now, you can do that yourself, this was just to show that by using the tools provided by the Lexicanum you will be able to compile a quite comprehensive list.

Good question. Probably but I can't think of a reference right now. But I think i remembered reading somewhere that Terra was exempted from tithes.

Maybe. There are (were) the 5th Armored Terran Praefects. Although if they were really founded on Terra or if it's just some kind of honorific title is unknown. Also mentioned were the 4th Terran Praefects and somewhere there is a mention of the 1st Terran tank Division.

If I recall correctly, Terra has no obligations to the Munitorum/Administratum so it doesn't need to produce war materiel or troops for the Imperium. However, there are probably all volunteer regiments from Terra that assist in its defense ad the defense of the area.

The links are handy, but the listings are not necessarily accurate. Catachan, for instance, is listed but it's in the Ultima Segmentum (it says so in its own link).

It's a wiki, if you whine that it's broke, it's you that's slacking off by not just fixing it.
