The Tide of WAAAAAGH!

The Tide of WAAAAAGH!

0 INK

When the Orks attack an Imperial world, two very different regiments of the Imperial Guard have to find a way to work together.

729 readers have visited The Tide of WAAAAAGH! since Irish Wolf created it.

Introduction

Forty thousand years in the future, there is only war.

Image

In the Calixis Sector of the Segmentum Obscurus, the Imperial colony on Zel Tertius is under assault by the Ork Warboss Bombad Bloodboy of the Bad Moons clan and Freebooterz mercenaries. As orks slaughter the planet’s citizens, the Imperial Navy smashes through the blockade to land regiments of the Imperial Guard. The fight will be hard, as the Bad Moons have large number of Weirdboyz and a number of those being Warpheads. Also, they are a wealthy ork clan, so many of their countless numbers are Flash Gitz, whom are even more numerous with the addition of the Freebooterz.

Thrown into the fray is a brand new regiment, the Scum 363rd. The troopers of the 363rd are not fresh faced recruits but the survivors of the Scintilla 234th and the Luggnum 129th regiments. However, even before the fighting begins, there are several problems with the new regiment. First and foremost is the fact that the Scintilla 234th was an infantry regiment stationed on a light cruiser for it’s five year service and the Luggnum 129th was an armor regiment with no organic mud trotters attached. The next problem are the troopers themselves, the 234th could be described as the amazonian equivalent of the Mordian Iron Guard, an all female, highly disciplined, well drilled and sharply uniformed regiment.

The 129th on the other hand could be described as…well…a dirty mob. Being former miners, they think nothing of being covered in grime and unshaven (at least to the point of heavy stubble to near-beard), with uniforms stained with oil, grease and sweat. While they know and can use formations, the moment the enemy routs, its every tank for itself. The glory of running over fleeing enemies is best gain at the head of the pack. They also don’t think much of bending the rules a little to suit themselves. Like most Guard regiments, they were raised from the male population of their homeworld, where women do only light work or stay at home.

The third flaw is experience. While the 234th was the senior regiment, having been in service for five years and the 129th only been around for two years (more then half of that in training), the 129th has seen more action. While the 234th has been in numerous battles, they have mostly just manned their battle stations and sent the odd platoon to board damaged pirate ships. The 234th on the other hand as fought against chaos cultists on Kudrun and rebels on Mosul. Both took heavy loses over Zel Tertius, both when the Dauntless class light cruiser Hero took fire from a Freebooter Killkroozaz and when several of the landers carrying the 129th were destroyed on route to the planet.

The final great flaw is leadership. Both regiments lost most of their higher ranking officers. Only a combined total of three captains survived with no colonels, majors or commissars. All of these factors are combined in a tangle of miscommunications, scrambled vox signals and clerical error seem to invite disaster in the face of an ork WAAAGH! Maybe the Emperor will smile on his soldiers and the small town of Haven. This town is far away from the frontlines and chosen as a great place to sent the stunned 129th and far enough away to get the 234th warmed up for a ground battle with a good march.




Now then, a few side notes.

1. the 234th doesn’t have any heavy weapons, flamers or plasma weapons (these may or may not get shipped to the new regiment on time for fighting). They have lasguns, autoguns, shotguns and the remaining officers might have a bolter and a chainsword.

2. the 129th doesn’t have much in the way of personal weapons, maybe a laspisol or snubgun

3. If you want to play a character in a tank, please play as a tank commander (sergeant or higher). Please NPC the rest of the tank crew.

4. In fact, lets just play characters ranked sergeants or above.

5. The 129th only has two companies left, one tank company (four platoons of four Leman Russ tanks) and a mix company of five sentinels, two hellhound, two trojans, an atlas and three chimeras

6. The 234th also has roughly two company’s worth of troops or roughly five hundred soldiers

7. The uniform of the 234th consists of black boots, dark blue trousers with a red line going down each leg, a white under shirt, a white tunic with blue trimming, black gloves (white for officers) and a dark blue kepi.

8. The uniform of the 129th consists of a (what were) brown boots, olive green pants, a (should be) white undershirt, a olive green jacket and a leather cap. All of their vehicles have a base color of dark gray paint.

9. If you have questions about technology, terms, weapons, races or anything else about the WarHammer 40k universe, please see this site: Lexicanum

10. Scintilla (homeworld of the 234th) is a hive world and capital of the Calixis Sector. It is highly possible that someone in the 234th was related to or a part of the nobility and it was their connects that got them a “safe” posting aboard the light cruiser.

11. Luggnum is a mining planet, who’s export of ore allowed them the funds to raise an armor regiment and who’s population was already used to cramped spaces and the use of machinery (like rigging rigs and tunneling machines).

In the Calixis Sector of the Segmentum Obscurus, the Imperial colony on Zel Tertius is under assault by the Ork Warboss Bombad Bloodboy of the Bad Moons clan and Freebooterz mercenaries. As orks slaughter the planet’s citizens, the Imperial Navy smashes through the blockade to land regiments of the Imperial Guard. The fight will be hard, as the Bad Moons have large number of Weirdboyz and a number of those being Warpheads. Also, they are a wealthy ork clan, so many of their countless numbers are Flash Gitz, whom are even more numerous with the addition of the Freebooterz.

Captain Henry Clayton, acting commanding officer of the decimated Luggnum 129th regiment leaned against the gray plasteel hull of his tank, Emperor’s Fury (her name written proudly in golden paint on the barrel of her battle cannon) and glanced at the five cards in his hand. It was hard to play at the moment, sitting in the town square of Haven, where a full platoon of tanks stood guard, as two of the soldier’s under his command circled one another in the middle of the square. Every now and then, they would swing at one another, as their fellows cheered or shouted insults from where they were relaxing. It was hard to keep the men focused. They had been sent to the ass end of nowhere, far from the front lines and even father from any reports of the orks infesting the planet.

“Hit him harder Frankie” roared the tank command, as he folded, “I have a full box a-smokes riding on you!”

His gambling partner, Andy, the main gunner for his tank laughed softly, as he scooped up the handful of slugs, the smallest of Luggnum currency and of little worth. At least the men were in better spirits then they had been a few days ago, when they rolled into the mostly abandoned town. The lose of most of your friends and only links back home was hard and the sting of losing the colonel, the major and the regiment colors to orks on the way planetside made it only worse.

“So whens the new tankers getting here” asked Rex, the tank’s driver, as he picked up the cards and started to shuffle.

“I don’t know” said Henry, “The dataslate that came with the fuel and ammo only said they’d be showing up today.”

“Who’s our new commander” asked Dennis, the loader.

“Don’t know” said the tank commander again, “It didn’t say. It just said they were hammered as bad as we were and that they’d be showing up today.”

“Did yah try calling HQ?” ask Rex, starting to deal out another hand.

“Yeah” grunted Henry, “But theres something in the atmo. Only short-range vox signals are working. However, I doubt those bastards at head quarters woulda told me anything anyways. The only thing we’ll have to do is wait.”

“So who are we combining with” asked Andy.

“The Scintilla Two-hundred-thirty-forth.”

“Never heard of ‘em” wheezed David, one of the side gunners, before he took a long drink from a dark bottle.

“Gimme that” said Henry, snatching the bottle from the man’s callused hands, “What would Commissar Vendigroth said about you drinking again? He would have shot you, so I’ll remove the temptation, encase the Two-hundred-thirty-forth has a Hangman with ‘em.”

A slight breeze picked up and tugged gently on the edges of his unbuttoned and stained jacket, as the tank commander drained the bottle of crude (and burning) spirits down his throat (the drink had been made most likely within the bowels of his own tank). It was coming from the west, where both the capital of this colony was (and most likely burning from ork artillery fire) and the direction from which the Scintilla 234th regiment should me heading from. At least it was late spring on this planet, no winter chill to force the men to seek shelter and no summer heat for the same effect. Many of the trees bordering the town were covered in small pink flowers (which had a horrid smell that luckily didn’t spread far from the trees themselves), as they lead up into the mountains in the east and to those much further to the west, which cut them off from the capital.

"Are you kiddin' me? Get outta here unless you've got some real money, kid." Regias lounged in the open cock pit of his Sentinel, Caroline, with an important looking file turned over on his dash. He had names and numbers all over it, and a pile of slugs in his floorboard.

"But, Reggie, I only have a few slugs." A young non-com stood next to the lowered Sentinel, his floppy cap covering his ears. "Remember that time you let the Captain bet two slugs?"

"Go get frakked, I owed the Cap'n some slugs and he has a few figures more rank than the both of us." Regias counted out another bet to his left. "Get lost, my time ain't free."

The non-com shuffled off with a sour look. He went and stood next to a few enlisted men, they laughed at him as he approached.

Loud exclamations came from the gathered crowd followed by a dull smack. Regias let out an exasperated sigh past his cigar. The smoke drifted lazily in front of his face as he counted out the winnings. "Who's next? Let's get some beef slabs swingin' in the ring! Come on!"

A massive man, enlisted, by the name of Patrick stepped forward, his shoulders swaying. He threw a few heavy handed punches at the air and the crowd started to hoot and holler. He was bald with unnaturally large muscles and forehead you could set dinner on. "That's what I'm talkin' 'bout! Where are my high rollers?"

As a small crowd started to form around him Regias stood in his Sentinel to better see all of the "high rollers."

"LT! The new tanks should be rollin' in soon!" Called a dour looking individual named Georg. Georg was one of Veche's men. It was often joked that those who didn't play well with others were put on Sentinel duty. Georg was the model of does not play well with others. He pushed people out of his way to Veche's Caroline and stood up on one of her lowered legs.

"So?" Regias bit down on his cigar, intent on the slugs changing hands.

"They might have some new Sentinels." Georg almost fell off of Caroline as Veche shoved an armful of slugs at him and jumped down on his way to the captain's table.
