This will be some home-made fluff for the Cadian 443rd Infantry Regiment "The Death Cards"
, my own personal army. I got currently 2 written stories about them, almost 300 pages long both of them and Im looking for some peple who are interested in reading them. I can get some information up and running in this thread to see if youre interested.
No records show exactly when the current latest founding of the Cadian 443rd took place, but its believed to somewhere before 972.M.41, when one of its senior members signed up. The first action it was set up against was the invansion of Cadia and the beginning of the 13th Black Crusade with many veterans of the struggle against forces of Chaos. Somewhere along this line the regimental commander grew out to be a Colonel Graham Locker [born 968.M.41].
Its a infantry based regiment with 13 companies, all named after a card of spades (ace of spades, 2nd of spades ect ect). 11th company (knight of spades) is special designed as it the only armored company, consiting of a certain numbers of tanks, Sentinels and Basilisks. Each company is lead by a man by a rank from Lieutenant up till Major.
First Pandoran Liberation
This is a conflict that the regiment never took part in but is heavily affected by. Taking place between the years 990.M.41 and going on until 008.M.42, its where an entire sector consisting of at least a 100 different worlds fell to Chaos worship. Not much information has been released as of yet, but there are theories some of the people responsible for this were a force consisting of an Alpha Legion warband, a small Host of Word Bearers, a Thousand Son sorcercer and some left overs from a Emperors Children warband.
Under leadership of one Admiral Saridian Jacbarr and his sub-ordinate General Greetchov (both names returning much later dure to different reasons) a huge Imperial force consiting of thousand Imperial Guardsmen, en entire Chapter of Lizard Warriors Astartes and the 7th company of the Dark Angels can put down the rebellion.
What the Imperial records doesnt show is in fact the Ruinous Powers won as they managed to corrupt every single Imperial commander who managed to hide for some years after the liberation ended, but also almost the entire Chapter of Lizard Warriors. The Admiral fell under the Alpa Legion persuasion, where their goals are yet to be determined what they want to achieve and who the leader is over this waband. General Greetchov fell under the seductive unfluence of Slaanesh when Lord Baal of the Emperors Children took over his ship. The Lizard Warriors fell during a climax battle against the Thousand Sons when at that point, the Captain of the second company, Valor Dade, "killed" (as in destroyed the mortal body of the TS) but got possessed by his corrupted soul and slowly changed into a servant of Tzeentch.
Thats all I'll write down for now. I'll get back to it later on.
Give me feed-back as the story progress.
