History: The Small Planet of Irland welcomed the embrace of war during the first invasion for Armageddon. The people then remembered their first founding with a sense of pride as it was there regiment that destroyed the feared Chaos Warlords Flagship in the high orbit above Armageddon. Though fielding only small armies the men of Irland were fearless in combat and made up what they lacked in numbers with sure fury and skill, droping out of the sky or disembarking from their Valkyrie transports. they earned the nickname "Iron Wolves" at the defence of Hades Hive during the Second War for Armageddon by Yarrick himself by being among the few to stand by him as the Orks breached the citadel. It was for this defiance that the planet of Irland would recieve speical attention by Gazghual on his second attempt to invade Armageddon.
The invasion came without warning and ****All remaining information classified by the Ordo Xenos; required clearence; Vermillion**** As their planet died around them a-then seargent by the name of Marcus Spears gathered what men he could and smashed through the Ork orbital blockade around the planet on the battleship now known as "The Old Wolf" Hailed by many for saving over 800 fighting men of Irland from destruction Spears was promoted to Lieutenet Colonel, who immediatly began to recall all surviving men of Irland which in the end numbered around 1,500. Even though undersized the 43rd Irland Airborne have refused on many occasions to join any other depleted regiments searching for recruits, even the now famous "Gaunts Ghosts". Their planet and home destroyed the Iron wolves fight their enemies now as if they were possesed, giving them the reputation of never having retreated or lost to a foe since their planets fall. ***Historical Note***Their usual sage green armor was dyed black as a sign of rememberance and honor of those who died in the fires of their home world. Their rank system on the battlefield consists of different colored helmets. Black for standard trooper, grey for all junior officers, and White for their comander, as to show no fear of the enemy*** The Irland Airborne recruit by absorbing other depleted airborne regiments that show the same toughness and mettle that has become characteristic of the Iron Wolves. They are currently being shipped to assist in the Sabbyt World's Campagin as their skill of assault and bravery is needed.
All reviews welcome thanks for reading!
I would however question one small detail... why or how a unit famed for its close quatar/assault fighting skills ALSO became famous for the skill of its snipers. Generally snipers hang back and shoot, units that like to mix it on the other hand have to get up close and in the enemies business...
Well what i was going for that yes they are great at assault but i also wanted to to get across due to their numbers that they would be lik storm troopers or veterans for all their stats. I chose snipers that yes even though they are an assaulty army they still have great marksmen to cover their advance, help w/ difficult targets ect.
I like it, though i think your dates are a little off, unless it's a much older regiment. Armageddon has happened a lot later then the sabbat's crusade. Unless of course your sourcing previous to the planets destruction.
PM me about Aurora Prime Vassal fights! Willing and ready!
haha... do you by any chance speak german? because "Irland" is german for "Ireland".
anyway, great fluff!!
oh i had no idea lol...well then i guess it will now be "Irrland Airborne" thanks for the heads up!!
i'm almost certain it makes practically no difference whatsoever, but i hadn't posted in a while and was board..
anyhow, got any pics yet?
Not yet, am working on it though. Also I am selling a very large armageddon steel legion imperial guard army, any takers?
