» Army Details
The Coronan 51st Grenadiers Regiment, 4th Brigade (Bde) are based on the ice planet Corona and specialise in combined arms and light mechanised urban breaching in cold weather operating environments. Due to the remoteness of the Coronan system and unique nature of its operations, the regiments are some of the select few elements of the Astra Militarum that are equipped with combined arms elements in the single regiment. The system is almost entirely self sufficient, able to draw on its indigenous populations for manpower, armour, artillery and aviation capabilities.

Unlike other IG regiments that specialise in extreme cold weather climates such as the Valhallan Ice Guard, the Coronan 51st forfeit some of their cold weather equipment to improve mobility and survivability whilst fighting in complex urban terrain. This affords the Coronan 51st with greater versatility and access to conventional IG equipment that requires very little modification to fight in their environment of choice - most modifications are done by the guardsmen themselves.
» History/Fluff
IV.XXVII.MMIX - 4Bde deployed to Coronan system moon Tarius to repulse the Waaagh of Orc Warboss Boss Nic'Nak. 4Bde Commander Belius Matus KIA. 4Bde recalled under heavy fire to re-establish communications and resupply. Codex Astartes elements completed clearance task.

V.XXX.MMX - A large Warp flare strikes the Coronan atmosphere causing massive ice melts and core integrity failure of multiple districts. Significant loss of life. 4Bde withdrawn from active status for deep maintenance and reconstitution.

XII.XXV.MMXIII - 4Bde brought back online for active service. Commander Laurence Kronos posted as new Bde Commander.

I.XXII.MMXIV - Commander Laurence Kronos leads 4Bde into first engagement following a call to the Coronan Administratum district to repel a Dark Eldar raiding party. Leman Russ 1/A/1 awarded battle honour after a direct strike on the Xenos commander's raider causing catastrophic failure. Xenos withdrew with heavy losses.

XII.UNK.MMXVI - Commander Laurence Kronos lead a small detachment of the 4Bde into a foray with an UNK chapter of traitor marines causing wide scale damage. 1/Avn/1 Vendetta left a number of traitor Tanks smouldering hulls. A viscous assault on Commander Kronos' defensive position saw many of his most trusted veterans destroyed, however he safely evaded the assault and liberated the attackers souls from their power armour.

» System History
The Coronan Sector is located near the Valhalla Sector. The capital of the system is Corona itself, a Hive world with a population of 110 billion Imperial Citizens built in an icy and harsh environment. The Coronan garrison totals nearly 8 million fighting men, the 51st Coronan Grenadiers Regiment being the most famous from the planet.


Within the Corona system, six major planetary bodies orbit a singular dying sun.


Mortem - Mortem is the closest planet to the central sun and is a burnt, barren, toxic landscape, with no known indigenous lifeforms. Its orbit is degrading and it is estimated in the millennia MMXXXIII it will collapse from its orbit and be lost. The Imperium nor the Heretics or Xenos have shown interest in Mortem during its recorded history.

Sterilis - Sterilis is the second closest planet to the central sun. The Administratum retain few records about the planet or its history. It was known to have had inhabitants prior to the Heresy, however it is believed to have lost its atmosphere from a Warp flare, resulting in the total annihilation of living creatures on the surface. An Imperial Re-population Program was started in MMXII however the environment on the surface remains a barren toxic-waste, only broken by the many ruins of once-great settlements. Re-population timelines have not been released by the Imperial Administratum at this time.

Corona - Corona is the third closest planet to the central sun and primary planetary body in the system. The Hive City was constructed during the Second Great Crusade as part of the Imperial Colonisation Objective to provide additional Imperial presence in the sector and assist in supporting the Manufactorum on Faciendo. Its population have spent generations living in the cold climate and fighting through the hive structures to remove Heretic and Xenos incisions from the many spires. Corona is the only planet in the system to be able to organically support life, with sufficient warmth from the central sun to maintain an oxygen based atmosphere. It is however feared that as the sun continues to collapse over the next millennia, it will result in the loss of the natural atmosphere.

Corona is orbited by two small moons, Curitus and Larax. Both moons host Imperial Navy ports, which are used to control the high flow of traffic to Corona and the Manufactorum on Faciendo.

Faciendo - Faciendo is a large Manufactorum world that supports the Imperial Coronan Sector. Its speciality is weapon systems that incorporate anti-freeze and its components are shipped across the galaxies, including regular deliveries to the Valhalla sector. The Imperium have suffered a number of major tactical defeats since the Heresy due to the faithful Guardsmen being sent into icy climates without correct equipment. Faciendo is best known for developing a replacement for the standard issue Lasgun power packs which are known to drain quickly in icy conditions. The use of camping fires to warm the power packs draws unnecessary Heretic and Xenos attention, and can cause the ice underfoot to melt or disintegrate.

Neptus - Neptus is the second farthest planet from the central sun and supports a number of small colonies that contain large storage facilities for Corona and the local populace provide Imperial labour to Faciendo. Whilst much of the surface is urbanised, the population density is very low. Automated Imperial Administratum systems handle most of the logistical labour, which are maintained by a small servitor cadre. The primary response forces for Xenos or Heretic incursion are provided by automated weapon systems, a small Adeptus Mechanicus Battle Congregation, the Imperial Navy port on Neptus' moon, Tarius, and the Veteran vanguard of the 51st Coronan Grenadiers Regiment.

Procul - Procul is the outer-most planet in the Coronan system and is currently being developed as a minor Hive planet. Procul also hosts an Imperial Penal Colony and remains the recruitment point for all of Corona's penal legions. Procul's indigenous population were formed from resettled penal colony wardens and are known from their aggression and discipline.

Great to see the rise of the Coronans! You're being kind to Nic-Nak there, as i recall the losses were catastrophic on both sides - also that my chaos couldn't seem to over come your Astartes ever!
