Regiments from your nation in service of the Imerian Crown

Postby Imeriata » Fri Aug 20, 2010 6:49 am

So I did after a while of thinking and inspired by units such as the san paricios, various Irish volunteer regiment in the American civil war, the Swiss guard in France and the Papal state, the French foreign legion and similar units of immigrants that fought and died as true heroes for their new adopted nations did I decide that I would want some units like that myself. That is when your nation comes into the picture as the absolute royal federation is supposed to be a multinational nation with nationalities from all over the world, this was something that I wished to represent in my army and its single ethnicity regiments. So now do you have the ability to create a regiment or two (I do however draw the line at twenty) to help me colour the royal guard with flavours from all corners of our great globe.

It should be noted that some of these regiments will likely turn up in RPs in the future.


Number of regiments:
Do your nation have any historical preferred way of fighting (It will most likely be incorporated into the way the regiment fights now somehow):
Do you wish to have a specific uniform:
If yes how would it look like (I would however prefer if you stuck to the theme of the royal guard and use uniforms from the late nineteen century or the early twentieth century),you may describe it (so will I do them to the best of my abilities in paint), post a picture or use the pictures assigned bellow as inspiration if you wish to paint it yourself:
do you have a nobility back home?
If yes on the previous question, will there be a presence of noblemen in this regiment?
What is the main ethnicity of your nations people (do if you can compare them to a RL people)?
What is the main religion of your people?
is there something the regiments will be known for? (such as they die standing rather than retreat, they are good marksmen or something similar)

Units so far
The shieldless
Image

The Imerian Ramset Auxiliary, known colloquially as the shieldless, are known as responsible and pragmatic warriors, made famous by their great skill, and distinctive purple caps and armour. They are often utilised in a position of shock infantry, where the most honour may be won in aggressive charges. But few nobles also realise that the Ramset heavy infantry are also highly capable defensive and garrisoning units.

They differ from Imerian natives in many ways, most notable is their respect for nonhuman soldiers, viewing them as equals on the battlefield. Many nonhuman regiments have claimed that this respect helps them to succeed in their mission, but has drawn them into direct conflict with the more staunchly traditional, and the outright racist groups in the Imerian Royal Guard. Also of note is their willingness to customise and modify their equipment, favoured alterations being extended magazines, or cutting away the flash suppressors of their (already shortened, paratrooper-like) rifles.

Image

In close combat, they fight with a traditional Ramset Straightblade (as pictured) or a brace of pistols, and will charge with rifles shouldered and firing. They do not carry bayonets at all, a breach of Imerian doctrine, but one that the Ramset have earned. They are known for being tenacious and vicious, but fighting in a stoic silence, often lining up the dead from both sides and providing them with funeral rites once the immediate threat has passed.

They are organised along standard Imerian lines, commanded directly by a former Ordinator with a great deal of combat experience, Lord Anlee Kubrick Santana. He has drilled self-dependance and flexibility into his subordinates, a prevailing methodology that seems to be based around the idea that, so long as the ultimate objective is achieved, digression from the initial plan is forgivable. all of the Shieldless are highly capable in utilising captured, scavenged, or otherwise non-standard equipment.

Mikedor Royal lancers
Image

Immigrants from Mikedor formed the royal lancers that today serves as the important role as mounted infantry that often protects the flanks of the royal guard, however as many different regiments of dragoons do exists are the main source of fame coming from the fact that the Mikedorian regiments often includes portions of lancers as well and massed cavalry charges are not a uncommon sight as the men in dark blue ride to battle next to their more common grey dressed brothers in arms.

Rödhänderna
Image

Rödhändern/Der Rothands or the redhands depending on who you ask is amongst the most famous of the non-Imerian volunteer regiments as they serve not only as a force that are able to fight when push comes to shove, but they do also serve as an important source of inspiration for the men in the ranks of the royal guard as a counter-revolutionary group of noblemen that have taken a stance against communism, democracy and liberalism.

However are that not the only source of fame for this regiment, as a all nobleman force do they have contacts enough to have the best equipment and may even have the authority to be deployed where the most glory can be won.

Slakonian infantry
Image
As infantry units are the men from Slakonian often employed as military police units. This have of course not given them great honour and they are often feared and looked upon suspiciously by the soldiers while the officers often sees them as a important and irreplaceable part of the army.

[align=center]Alfegoisse forward scout attachments
Image

Alfegoisse forward scout attachments may not be many but the legends of them are spoken around the camp fires of the other guard regiments, as their infiltration and hit and run attacks have served the federation well as harassment troops and kill teams that eliminates enemy commanders to make breakthroughs trough enemy lines easily as they are overwhelmed by the Imerian folkstorm.
The Alfegoisse Scouts originally comprised of a group of shamed survivors from a so-called "Traitor Regiment" (Yui'hu's Foresters), who fled from Alfegos after the massacre of most of their comrades at the First Battle for Sil'il Capitolium. Offering their services to the Royal Guard of Imeriata, they continue to populate their ranks with various shamed ex-soldiers from the People's Nation of Alfegos. The contingent still fiercely guard the shattered remains of the colours, and the weapons of their regiment's founder (Yui'hui the Ghost, Sou'se'rai of the Sil'il colony). The few senior supervising officers often have to learn very fast the system of respect that holds the scout contingent together - experience often dominates rank, with mutual respect between non-commissioned officers, specialists and the actual officers being exceedingly strong, despite the nature of the unit. One might say that adversity has brought them closer together.

The unit utilise standard Imeriata weapons, as issued to them. However, many still keep service weapons from Fegosian service, including their large Gra'su'xi (often seen as a symbol amongst their regiment), the AF-1 bolt-action service rifle and (rarely) the Ev'kho Mark II Anti-tank Rifle.

The unit structure still follows the format of 2 Battalion as it was before the regiment's destruction. The men are normally deployed in company-sized units as an attachment, though the entire battalion can fight together.

[quote]Command Platoon:
Officer's Section - The senior staff, including Imeriata supervisors
Staff Section - Semi-combat staff, mainly responsible for paperwork, but are expected to take up arms if needs be
Signaller Section - Including semaphore signaller, field wireless operator, telephone operators and the Battalion Piper
Guard Section - The eight most trustworthy guards of the officers, and the Battalion standard bearer

Artillery Attachment Platoon:
1 Section - Mortars
2 Section - Mortars
3 Section - 30 mm Cannon (A Fegosian oddity, very effective in an ambush)

Signal Su

Since that time has the wolohanistan guard served as shook troopers of the royal guard were their fame arose as regiment of great honour and amongst the best assault regiments.

Kanzerne foreign force
Image

Seen often in front of the main advances of the federation do forces of Kazerne often act as raiders and marauders that attacks and cut off lightly defended enemy emplacements and remote enemy formations.

Lzar Naten non-human regular formation
Image

As non-humans do the Lzar Naten and most of their inferior brothers and sisters fights as the first wave into the heaviest fortifications to ensure that humans will not take as heavy causalities. They are however as humans often not considered something worth mentioning in the stories the bards tell when they sing of the glorious victories, they are only mentioned as "the first wave" in the newspapers and only mentioned hasty in the official reports. causalities are high, pay are low if it's even existing but the words of the gods and their families back home are given food, waters and other essential equipment as long as they remain in line so they keep on fighting with poor equipment and leadership but with a fierce determination do they march on.

The 412th Grenadier Regiment, the "Iron Dragons"
Image

The hermenians in the royal guard forms the Iron dragon regiment often sent into as the tip of the second wave where their improved equipment the status as grenadiers give them access to and according to the songs the bards in Imeriata sings so is the regiment known not to take a single step backwards no matter how grim the day seems. The regiment however has always been looked at with something of suspicion by the rest of the guardsmen as most of them consider the Hermenians themselves as potential socialists as and are all ways on the lookout for signs if they would attempt to spread the far left ideology from their homeland to the shores of the federation.

Orcoan assault regiments
Image

Orcoan regiments are well known for their aggression on the offensive and their prowess in melee and they are often employed specifically for assaults upon enemy fortifications where their skills in melee can best be employed. And amongst the troops are more than often close combat units such as axes and maces given out to the common troopers more than often do they bring their own weapons such as two handed axes and Halberds.

sons of Izzyshipper
Image

Often do regiments from Izzyshipper find themselves serve as light infantry where their unique uniforms is the only thing makes them stand out amongst the rest of the regiments of the gaurd.

Jalenat regiments
Image

The regiments from jalenat is not claiming any specific fame and do serve as nothing but regiments of the line where they after the mutiny of 1952 got a permission to have their own uniforms as they thought that they fought for evil dressed in the Imerian standard uniform which of course where dismissed out of hand by the rest of the guard and their own officers.

The dominions best
Image

As every man knows do the best warriors from Tergnitz serve in the dominions finest or the 34th Imerian dragoon regiment as they officially are known as. Surely are Tergnitzans considered as a good people and almost as proper Imerians but the dominions best are at least by the royal guard considered better than the rest of the Tergnitzians, a reputation they well deserves as they are often found doing not only what duty require but often more so in the name of the absolute royal federation.

Zehr regiments of the line
Image

Zher regiments do often hold the reputation of being amongst the last to retreat, a reputation that is in most cases well deserved as they have shown again and again over the years since they were created. In most cases are they assigned to the front lines and sent straight through hell with their human brothers to take the enemies positions.

Avian airborne non-human regulars
Image

Avians do side by side with the native Imerian faeries serve as droop troopers and rapid deployment units to points in both the Imerian and the enemies lines where a breakthrough seem eminent and more men are needed. This have given them a position of love and respect amongst the non-human regiments as more than once have a hopeless situation been reversed as the grey clad angels swooped down upon the enemy. It has also been known for both avians and faeries to be equipped with all grenades that the regiment could get their hands on and use them as improvised bombers when the enemy where suspected to be too heavily armoured or simply to give the advancing men bellow a chance to resume the attack while the enemy where forced to take cover.

Lemon non-human regulars
Image

Despite their ability to serve as excellent shook troopers are the lemon non-human regulars often disregarded as weak and undisciplined amongst most non-human regiments by their human officers.

Onyenu combat engineers
Image

The life of a combat engineer is not a glorious one and as a result has nearly no one heard about their exploits but they do still keep going by digging trenches and building everything from bunkers to bridges and digging minefields.

The Valeskonian rearguard
Image

As a people well known for being able to put down rebellions and insurgents so are they often used as garrison forces in newly occupied territory, this is however a job that gives little to no honour but it is a necessary one that the Valeskonian rearguard do with pride and determination.

the Anglo-Saxon volunteers "the Iron skulls"
Image

Anglo-Saxons are in general considered friends and allies in the federation and do as a result have a good reputation of being honourable men, but that respect diminish compared to the respect the Iron skulls regiments enjoys from their Imerian comrades. However the respect have not been something bought cheap but rather paid heavily in blood as the Iron skulls often do their best to be in the fray once the battle have begun and they are also known amongst the officers to be rather disciplined as they do not disregards orders to stand up against an overwhelming enemy as some Imerians do to enter the warriors heaven (some people do however say that, that is rather a sign of cowardice but they are often ignored as the Iron skulls prove themselves again and again on the battlefield).

Spartinth Regiments of the line
Image

As standard line troopers is it not much that makes the Spartinth regiments stick out as they are even commanded by noblemen from the federation itself as they do not have a nobility of their own. But while they are not especially known for anything so does the Spartinths serve as the most important part of the federal military force as they march, fights, charges, lives and even dies next to countless other men from all parts of the world as they fight to spread the glory of multinational absolute monarchy to all corners of the world.

The Goroslavian sea raiders
Image

The men from Goroslavia are often deployed in ships to serve as raiders before massive landings; they land in smaller forces over a long period of time and wait the time when they are ready to strike. When they strike so have often important artillery positions and fortifications been noted and the coordinates have been sent to the fleet that hammers them with their cannons until nothing but dust remains. If this and the landings made by the proper infantry so do the Goroslavian regiments make the task even harder as they attacks and overruns important positions before dispersing to strike at the next while Imerians land more and more men uncontested.

Synnia shocktroopers
Image

If there is one thing that Synnia provide the federation with is it the highly prized Synnian shocktroopers that due to their training often proves to be invaluable on the battlefield as more than one enemy have fallen before the highly organized and skilled men from Synnia as they advances behind cover while giving cover to their comrades in a highly disciplined manner.

Ghoul non-human regulars
Image

While most non-humans are looked upon with suspicion so are ghouls or other "undead" looked upon even more so and often seen by the commoners as spawns of Helia the goddess of death. And more than often so do most commoners even go so far to hold up both symbols of the rose ablaze and other religious symbols to keep them at bay. As soldiers are they employed as most other non-human regiments by bring up the numbers in assaults or to protect the regiments.

Tezdirans line regiments
Image

Tezdirans are as most mercenary regiments considered scum and undisciplined regiments that are looked down upon by the rest of the guards and more than often do brawls and fights breaks out between regulars and mercenaries over things like who gets to eat first and other trivialities. This is even more common amongst the commoners whom still consider themselves above any soldiers for hire as they fights for what is right and they fight for dirty money. This is even more common between Tezdirans and Negroid and mongoloid guardsmen who are often insulted and even laughed at by the Tezdirans.

the Orlkjestad regiment
Image

Orlkjestan regiments do often find themselves on the front lines fighting where they have won much fame but they are still consider strange to say the least as they tend to keep to themselves. However when they are on the battlefield are they still considered amongst the most honourable regiments that fights for the crown.

Guardia real Federal
Image

The Guardia Real Federal serves as forward attack units which often find themselves as the attack units that are sent to attack poorly defended or remote outposts that still provide a threat to the grand battle plan. As such do they serve as a surgical knife of the federation compared to the rest of the guard that are used more in the style of a sledgehammer.

Mortani Mountain Brigade
Image

As fighters of the federation are the sons from Mortani often deployed in far of mountain ranges where their fighting skills are best used, this do often mean that they have to fight through well-defended positions and are just as often forced to build fortifications of their own. This has resulted in the regiment being assigned a high amount of combat engineers and artillery attachments compared to the rest of the regiments of the guard.

The federal knights
Image

As a noble regiment are the federal knights given the best equipment available to the federation as heavy ballistic armour and a shield of the same material, as noblemen are they also according to federal tradition given a sword. They do however only use sword and shield only in close combat and they do otherwise attack with pike bayonet and the KVG as most royal guardsmen.

Agadar Iron dragoons
Image

As Iron dragoons is it the duty of the members to ride in IFVs and APC to battle on the flanks of the infantry and with the more numerous and more glorious dragoons. Despite the contempt shown by regular soldiers against such units so do Agadar amongst the rest of the Iron dragoons enjoy a well-earned reputation amongst the high command and despite they are not given the honour of going first into battle so are the armoured machines that transports them often a sight that spread death and destruction amongst the enemy ranks).

McConian swamp rats
Image

Often trained specifically for fights through deep and remote swamplands do the men from McConia see little to no fights but when they do so are they often without the luxuries as tanks, dragoons, horses and even tanks. This means they must fight with what they can carry and often do the soldiers carry with them twice the amount of heavy machine-guns and mortars to keep the enemy at bay while they can close in with bayonets. Another unit that is sees abnormal high usage by the McConians are warhounds that are used to flush out enemies as they strike silently from the dense undergrowth .

94TH foreign regiment of the line
Image

The 94th regiment fights on the front lines where they fight on amongst the federal forces even if they often find themselves as a soldiers joke because of their helmets.

the Alekseevskayan contra Revolutionary Guardians
Image

Often seen as scum because of their communistic history so are the contra Revolutionary Guardians seen as untrustworthy and given low priority jobs that have no importance on the big scale of war.

Castryan forward scout regiments
Image

Castryan forward squats are deployed in jungles where their skills as scouts and jungle fighters are best deployed to fight for the glory of the federation.

the Sons of Fenris
Image

As a regiment have the son of Fenris not as of jet proven themselves as they thanks to their deployment as a mountain fighting regiment in the Vedian mountains where they so far have only been able to keep the road safe from bandits, dragons, mountain wolves and other things that lurk in the Vedian mountainside. This however changed in late 2009 when the regiment where posted for a time in the Alps during the liberation of northern venezue. Their time there where however short and as soon as local regiments had been raised that knew the Alps as their backhands where the sons of Fenris once again back guarding the roads of Vedian.

Holstria regiments of the line
Image

As a regiment does the men from Holstria fights just as any other guard unit on the front lines where they just as any other regiment of the line dig their trenches and attacks in large numbers when the orders are given. The rest of the guard however do often jokingly calls them cowards as "they hid behind their helmets!"

The black bowmen
Image

The black bowmen are an ancient unit that served first in the first war against Vedia as one of the few longbowmen the kingdom had. They did however in those dark times had an easy life as they more than often where the target of suspicion and hat as they worshipped a false god that claimed to be the only one while he at the same time where three. Today have this all changed and the black bowmen is one of the more distinguished units to serve and due to their tradition to rain death from above do the regiment not only have a unusual high number of mortars attached to them but also do they find themselves as one of the few regiment with a permanent attachment of heavy artillery at their command. Due to this are the regiment often found fighting on the front lines but rarely part of charges as they are considered by most a defensive unit.

Lusitaniagrad regiments of the line
Image

The regiments from Lusitaniagrad are often considered "all but a native born federal subject!" by most soldiers that wear the grey tunic (the good one not the one most nazi nation uses) and often are they considered one of the federations own, especially by Vedian regiments who's similar uniforms makes sure that they treat the sons of lusitaniagrad as brothers. This welcome is due to the reputation both as good marksmen but also as furious charges the regiment have earned in the field.

the Shadow company
Image

While the shadow company often serves the federation well so do most federal subjects keep their distance as they as mercenaries fight for something impure and are as a result bared from the warriors heaven when they fall in battle, This is something the followers of the holy chronicles do not wish to be contaminated with so they keep their distance. Despite this so are the shadow company well known to get the job done no matter what, so they are as a result given the dirtiest job the army can find which most other units would see as dishonourable.

Chimera non-human regular
Image

As most non-humans do the chimeras find themselves put in the front lines and given the most dangerous jobs amongst those that no other wants. As reward for this does they find nothing but contempt from their officers (that are often either cowards or men deemed incompetent by the high command and given their job as punishment) and even pity from their human comrades in arms.


Fedeledland Regiments of the line
Image

As warriors are Fedeledland soldiers considered civilized, decent and cultural warriors all traits are something that are greatly admired by the federation and its people. This has given the regiments from Fedeledland a reputation of being men of valor and they enjoy great respect from their comrades and commanding officers as a result.

94TH foreign regiment of the line*
Image

The 94th regiment fights on the front lines where they fight on amongst the federal forces even if they often find themselves as a soldiers joke because of their helmets.

the Alekseevskayan contra Revolutionary Guardians
Image

Often seen as scum because of their communistic history so are the contra Revolutionary Guardians seen as untrustworthy and given low priority jobs that have no importance on the big scale of war.

Castryan forward scout regiments
Image

Castryan forward squats are deployed in jungles where their skills as scouts and jungle fighters are best deployed to fight for the glory of the federation.

Niermark breakthrough specialist regiments
Image

Regiments from Niermark are often tasked with assaulting lightly defended positions to achieve quick breakthroughs in the enemy lines which they use to circle the enemy forces and support mayor offensives by attacking the defenders in the rear. More than one mayor offensive have been saved this way as the defenders break under the pressure of a massive surprise bayonet charge in the rear.

Britannian regiments of the line
Image

Men from Britannian are often lost in the crowd as their regiments do not have any special things that sets them apart from the royal guardsmen from any federal realm, this however have led to most federal regiments do accept them as one of their own and do not look upon them with as much suspicion as some of the other regiments.

Ralkovian Death guard
Image

The Ralkovians that live within the borders of the absolute royal federation are known for two things, the first is for being quite wealthy and successful members of the royal merchant guild. The second is the death guard, a regiment that in the spirit of the original death guard units back home in Ralkovia trains hard and long to become one of the finest fighting force in the entire royal guard and it is not common for the regiment to recruit children of the Ralkovian enclaves to fill the ranks of those feared regiments. In peace time so do they either serve as guards to both the federal synagogue to which they serve almost in the same manner of the holy army do to the chronically and to defend the Jewish and mostly the Ralkovian enclaves that lives shattered over the entire federation. In wartime however do they serve as a manifestation of death upon the battlefield as their charges and attacks leaves hordes of enemies dead before they go on to their next target, showing no remorse in the battle, no mercy upon the captured or wounded. This has earned them both the respect and admiration from the men in the royal guard and the favour of high command that consider them amongst the finest foreigners in the ranks of the guard.

Lazerus long regiments of the line
Image

As most guards regiments so can those of Lazerus long be found on the front lines fighting for the glory of their king and adopted country with nothing more than their KVG and bayonet to bring the justice of the federation to far of lands. This tactic is something they share with the countless of regiments that serves in the federations royal guard and they have so far been unable to distinguish themselves so far.

The Wolohanistan guard
Image

As the first refugees from wolohanistan arrived to the absolute royal federation were it also a war torn nation that had just finished a civil war of its own the syndicalist army where broken and the royal guard advanced everywhere. It was in these troubled times when the wolohanistan guard where formed as they as many regiment's both at this time and during the war by both sides. The men who served in the war and their families where given a piece of land from where a seizable city arose. The regiment however did not disperse and from that city did the sons from the men who served did take up their fathers uniforms when the time came.

Since that time has the wolohanistan guard served as shook troopers of the royal guard were their fame arose as regiment of great honour and amongst the best assault regiments.



It should be pointed out here and now that this thread is NOT, and I repeat NOT about your kings or other head of states personal guard, but rather about immigrants and adventurers from your nation that fights in the royal guard.
Also would I prefer that your regiments are not borrowed or otherwise primary serving your nation but rather just immigrants unless you have my specific permission to do so (and then would I need a good explanation why)

You'd likely not be able to coax that many people from the People's Nation, burdened as it is with armed units. As such, the force deployed would be on the size of a battalion at most.

Number of Units - 1 Battalion (479 men full fighting capacity)

Do your nation have any historical preferred way of fighting: Guerilla warfare in defence, Precision in attacks. Historically, large battles took place on the fringes of the rainforests (such as the Gra'fegos), in which light/raider infantry used the cover of forest to take on the guardsmen regiments, with varying degrees of success. In modern war, guerilla-style training is still given, and the Raider infantry are mostly a guerilla force. The guard infantry (and aeromarines) often prefer to fight with the support of the airfleet and/or the massive coastal emplacements run by the navy and 2nd Army.

In terms of style of fighting, all light infantry carry the functional "Gra'su'xi" (Great Bringer of Light), a machete-tool of about 950mm long with lightened and very sharp edge towards the hilt (for tooling work such as whittling). Raider infantry often arm themselves with personal weapons, with various Su'xi, weaponised tools and personal weapons. In a fight, such infantry often prefer to get into a melee situation (normally after an ambush is sprung), since they have such an advantage against the slightly slower heavy infantry that are the norm in most nations.
Guard infantry carry a more ceremonial version of the Gra'su'xi, and prefer to stay far away from combat.

In the case of this Battalion, the men will be light infantrymen, since the tradition of light infantry is strong in Alfegos, despite massive cuts in their numbers in preference for more modern Guard infantry. The infantry would fight either on foot, or be deployed from larger mass-transport (e.g. helicopter, aerodropcraft, truck) not attached to the Battalion.

Do you wish to have a specific uniform: Yes

If yes how would it look like (I would however prefer if you stuck to the theme of the royal guard and use uniforms from the late nineteen century or the early twentieth century),you may describe it (so will I do them to the best of my abilities in paint), post a picture or use the pictures assigned bellow as inspiration if you wish to paint it yourself: The two uniforms used by the battalion are as follows
> Ceremonial Dress - A black cape and dress trousers, with any decoration in green. Headgear would be a beret of the same colour, with the cap-badge of the Royal Guard. The left shoulder would bear the insignia of the royal guard, along with the battalion patch (a rectangle divided diagonally, green and black, with an orange palm tree on top - the Fegosian insignia). Black boots. Officers wear a green sash.

> Standard Dress - A khaki cape and trousers, with any decoration in black. Headgear would either be the beret mentioned above, or a green bandanna (depending on temperature/purpose). Same arm insignia.

Do you have a nobility back home? No
If yes on the previous question, will there be a presence of noblemen in this regiment? n/a
What is the main ethnicity of your nations people (do if you can compare them to a RL people)? Fegosian, which is similar to south-east asian.
What is the main religion of your people? None
is there something the regiments will be known for? (such as they die standing rather than retreat, they are good marksmen or something similar) - If deployed as they should be, in cities or forests, they are ruthless. They are like the ghosts of the Royal Guard, rarely seen in their own right or in combat, yet when they are, as the metal part of an ambush. They would rather watch someone die by their own hand in close combat rather than use their issue rifle/pistol to kill them at a distance.

Hope that helps. The standard Fegosian organisation is an 80 man company, consisting of 9 combat sections and a command section. I'm crap at drawing uniforms, so sorry there! If there are any more questions, feel free to ask!

Number of regiments: One (21st Infantry, with 2040 men, minus detatchments such as artillery, armored vehicles, MPs, etc.)

Historic method of fighting: Light infantry/skirmishers, with a particular ability for raids.

Specific uniform: Yes. A forest green tunic and pants, black boots, and tan berets. Uniform is the same for enlisted, noncoms and officers, with the only difference being rank insignia. Kazernian dress uniforms, however, are used for formal occasions (Think RL Bundeswher)

Nobility at home: Yes, but far more ceremonial than functional, unlike in the past.

Presence of noblemen: Very possible, and spread throughout all ranks. In the Federal Republic, just because someone is blue-blooded does not mean they automatically have officer status--they truely do have to earn it.

Main ethnicity: Kazernian (Think Germanic culture)

Main religion: The majority of Kazernians are Roman Catholic, but the BundesStreitKrafte, just like society, has all different faiths serving, and so general chaplains fulfill our troops' spiritual needs.

Reputation: The 21st Light Infantry is known for relying more upon small-unit operations than as an entire regiment. They are all adept pathfinders, and pride themselves on moving silently through any terrain. Often found on the flanks of Kazernian or allied forces, trying to find ways around the opposition.

Quotes of Awesome
Veblenia--I imagine it's like being the visionary that first thought of eating eggs. "See that thing that came out of the chicken's ass? Let's cook it."

Free Soviets--the intellectual culture here is interesting. we tolerate that massive diversity better than most places i've seen, but we expect you to either argue your shit or at least be funny.

Olthar--You're asking if people on NS are insane? That's like walking into a church and asking how many people are Christian.

Tokos--Yeah clearly he doesn't know Catholic dogma. You're not supposed to hate anyone. Jews are just infidel who rather spectacularly dropped the ball.

These ways are the traditional ones.
All Guards are highly trained in krav maga techniques.

Imperial Guard employs two uniforms.
Service Dress - A black, high collar closed jacket, with golden decorations and profiles.

Under the jacket, a wihite shirt, without ties or collars.
Ceremonial Dress - A red, high collar closed jacket, with golden decorations and profiles.
Hadgear is a cap (something like THIS) in the same colours, red and golden profiles.
Rank insignias are worn on collars.
Under the jacket, a wihite shirt, without ties nor collars.

Do you have a nobility back home? Oh, yes

Number of regiments:
1 Regiment (In metric, so every step up from soldier is x10)...Although, am I allowed to offer an armoured regiment design?
Imerian Ramset Auxiliary - 'The Shieldless'
Do your nation have any historical preferred way of fighting:
Heavy Infantry with extensive support by aerial and light cavalry units
Do you wish to have a specific uniform:
Yes
If yes how would it look like,you may describe it, post a picture or use the pictures assigned bellow as inspiration if you wish to paint it yourself:
an officer of the third unit, second section. Officers are identified by polished steel (unit), silver (section) or gold (Regiment) throat guards.
Image
Basically, white uniform with purple and polished steel details. Lots of armour, shoulder-holstered sidearm, large collar, Imerian Golden Eagle feather in cap (as a sign of respect for the adoptive nation). Not afraid to roll up their sleeves and shed their pauldrons in warmer climates, and often modifying weapons and armour to suit themselves, either more comfortably or more effectively.

Now here's hoping I never have to use a template like that again, no offense. If it's not suitable, give me a Telegramme, and we'll work out a compromise.
do you have a nobility back home:
As honorary titles, yes.
If yes on the previous question, will there be a presence of noblemen in this regiment:
There may be, but again, the titles are only given as honours in Ramsetia and hold no power there.
What is the main ethnicity of your nations people:
A roughly even mix of Middle-eastern blacks and northern european whites. Odd (read; blues, pinks, greens) hair and eye colours are common. Also portions of elven and other eldritch peoples.
What is the main religion of your people:
Most common through the warrior culture of Ramsetia are the Norse and Ancient Egyptian gods.
is there something the regiments will be known for:
A notable increase in effectiveness when working as part of combined arms operations, and an utter refusal to retreat, even when directly ordered. They are also highly effective when using scavenged or liberated hostile weapons, should issued equipment run dry.

Number of regiments:The Old Laosian Guard have a total of 17 regiments. Due to the size of the capital city, in which The Royal Guard is posted in, Laosia has over 800,000 members, and due to the fact they would be too hard to keep up with if we had 4,500 a regiment, we have decided to increase the number allowed in a regiment.
Do your nation have any historical preferred way of fighting (It will most likely be incorporated into the way the regiment fights now somehow): The Old Laosian Guard uses normal military tactics. They are excellent snipers and rifleman. They are masters of urban war.

Name of Regiment:

Rothands Regiment / Redhand's Regiment*

Named in honour of their founder, Erich "Rothand" von Hannover, who got his nickname because he refused any kind of treatment for his wounds during an ongoing battle in the Fatherland. He directed the battle with a severely wounded and bleeding hand for several hours. The laceration coloured his entire left arm and uniform in a deep, disturbing red until the battle was over and he stood his ground against rebel forces on a strategic bridge. In honour of his sacrifice, he was called Redhand from then on. He survived into the Revolution, but the hand needed to be amputated. The motto of the regiment also honours the founder of the Regiment.

Regiment Motto:

Meine Hand fürs Land / My hand for the land

Number of regiments:

One Full 3000 men Regiment - consisting of 1 Infantry Battalion, 1 Feldjäger Battalion, 1 Field Artillery Battery/Battalion, 1000 men each

Do your nation have any historical preferred way of fighting:

Maneuver warfare, called Bewegungskrieg by the regiment and in Prut circles, rapid, fluid maneuvers, quick deployment and movement

Do you wish to have a specific uniform:

Light grey trousers and Tunic, Black Combat boots and belts, Dim Grey Trench Coat, Grey Stahlhelm

Ceremonial Uniform used for parades and ceremonial duties

Soldiers wounded in battle recieve a red band from the Commanding Prut Officer of the Regiment, which they wear from then on over their left hand, visible for everyone to see. A Soldier who "earned his band" has shown readiness to sacrifice his life to uphold his duty and the honour of the Regiment, as well as his respect for the Host country, Imeriata. Native Officers of the Regiment need to earn a Red Band before they can be promoted.

If yes how would it look like:

As described and shown above

Do you have a nobility back home?

Technically yes, however the Republic and Constitution do not acknowledge noble titles nor privileges, but keeps track of them - both hereditary patent/prestige titles of nobility and hereditary landed titles of nobility.

If yes on the previous question, will there be a presence of noblemen in this regiment?

All of them. All are volunteers serving as a pure noble regiment, as a form of protest against the contemporary Prut Republic, as well as to honour the last Kaiser of the old Monarchy, who died in self-imposed exile in the 1940s. The Infantry Battalion is made up of holders of landed titles, while the Feldjägers and Artillerists hail from the holders of patent titles. Both are referred to as Ritter - Landed as Ritter von etc. Patent as Ritter zu etc. Example: Otto Feldmann Ritter von Leipzig, is a man holding a hereditary landed title and his lands are in the viscinity of Leipzig. If he had a patent title, he would be Otto Feldmann Ritter zu Leipzig, which would denote that he hails from that city or was made a noble in that city.

What is the main ethnicity of your nations people?

Nearly 98% are ethnic Prut. All men in the Regiment are ethnic Prut. Prut are in the Germanic group of Indoeuropean ethnicities.

What is the main religion of your people?

90% of all Prut practice Prut Protestantism, while all men in the Regiment will be Prut Protestants. Similar to Lutheranism.

Is there something the regiments will be known for?

Their esprit de corps, elan, discipline, iron will and endurance - also quite known to interprete orders as they see best and following a strict code of conduct and the doctrine of Auftragstaktik. Once their objective is given, they will pursue it to the best of their abilities. Adaptability and flexibility are other strong marks of this rather Independant Regiment. They never, under no circumstances rout, nor commit war crimes. Often show strong rivalry with similar units, and they are quite competitive. Noted also for their realistic combat pragmaticism, as long as it doesn't break the rules of engagement and their code of conduct.

Because of their behavior, they are regarded as smug and arrogant, but capable and loyal. Often deployed as a Vanguard for the main force, either softening up enemy lines, or covering retreating units. Because of their internal authonomy and fluid command structure, they are quite useful for achieving special objectives and missions. They show excellent success in guard and siege duties, as well as performing quite passable in Urban and Anti-Armor operations. Their performance suffers greatly in tropical/desert environments, and they fight with considerably less efficency and worse results in amphibian and water environments and naval engagements.

Mikedor Royal lancers
Image

Immigrants from Mikedor formed the royal lancers that today serves as the important role as mounted infantry that often protects the flanks of the royal guard, however as many different regiments of dragoons do exists are the main source of fame coming from the fact that the Mikedorian regiments often includes portions of lancers as well and massed cavalry charges are not a uncommon sight as the men in dark blue ride to battle next to their more common grey dressed brothers in arms.

Rödhänderna
Image

Rödhändern/Der Rothands or the redhands depending on who you ask is amongst the most famous of the non-Imerian volunteer regiments as they serve not only as a force that are able to fight when push comes to shove, but they do also serve as an important source of inspiration for the men in the ranks of the royal guard as a counter-revolutionary group of noblemen that have taken a stance against communism, democracy and liberalism.

However are that not the only source of fame for this regiment, as a all nobleman force do they have contacts enough to have the best equipment and may even have the authority to be deployed where the most glory can be won.

Alfegoisse forward scout attachments
Image

Alfegoisse forward scout attachments may not be many but the legends of them are spoken around the camp fires of the other guard regiments, as their infiltration and hit and run attacks have served the federation well as harassment troops and kill teams that eliminates enemy commanders to make breakthroughs trough enemy lines easily as they are overwhelmed by the Imerian folkstorm.

Morrdh light infantry regiments
Image

Morrdh regiments do often according to their traditional fighting force serves as light infantry regiments that makes the first waves amongst dragoons, self-propelled artillery, light horse artillery and mechanized units of attack when speed is required to destroy the enemy lines and infrastructure before the battle slow down to the point where trenches must be built to protect the battle lines from hostile breakthroughs.

Imerian Ramset Auxiliary - 'The Shieldless'
Image

If there is one positions in the royal guard all regiments look upon in awe so is it the position of the stormtroopers the elite of the guard that with the heavy armour and assault rifles do those regiments lead the rest of the human wave and amongst those men can even a regiment from Ramsetia be found. The shieldless or the first ramsetian heavy infantry's fame is however not only limited to that as an elite regiment but they have two other sources of fame, both that as a resourceful regiment whose officers are able to turn most situations around instead of blindly following the battle doctrines and what they were thought at the military academy as most imerian officers do.

Disclaimer I have not made the original designs that belong to Candiro and I have only remade them. A great thanks should also go to New Nicksyllvanian from whom I stole borrowed a bunch of ideas. If any of you have any complains of me using your great work so just tell me and it will be removed.
Further Disclaimer: I am not the creator of the "Imerian Ramset Auxiliary - 'The Shieldless'" unit that were made by Ramsetia herself.

Postby Alfegos » Sat Aug 21, 2010 3:07 pm

Did some further work for you for the scout attachments (love the denonym you give them!). By the way, when do you intend to use these men?

-----------

The Alfegoisse Scouts originally comprised of a group of shamed survivors from a so-called "Traitor Regiment" (Yui'hu's Foresters), who fled from Alfegos after the massacre of most of their comrades at the First Battle for Sil'il Capitolium. Offering their services to the Royal Guard of Imeriata, they continue to populate their ranks with various shamed ex-soldiers from the People's Nation of Alfegos. The contingent still fiercely guard the shattered remains of the colours, and the weapons of their regiment's founder (Yui'hui the Ghost, Sou'se'rai of the Sil'il colony). The few senior supervising officers often have to learn very fast the system of respect that holds the scout contingent together - experience often dominates rank, with mutual respect between non-commissioned officers, specialists and the actual officers being exceedingly strong, despite the nature of the unit. One might say that adversity has brought them closer together.

The unit utilise standard Imeriata weapons, as issued to them. However, many still keep service weapons from Fegosian service, including their large Gra'su'xi (often seen as a symbol amongst their regiment), the AF-1 bolt-action service rifle and (rarely) the Ev'kho Mark II Anti-tank Rifle.

The unit structure still follows the format of 2 Battalion as it was before the regiment's destruction. The men are normally deployed in company-sized units as an attachment, though the entire battalion can fight together.

Command Platoon:
Officer's Section - The senior staff, including Imeriata supervisors
Staff Section - Semi-combat staff, mainly responsible for paperwork, but are expected to take up arms if needs be
Signaller Section - Including semaphore signaller, field wireless operator, telephone operators and the Battalion Piper
Guard Section - The eight most trustworthy guards of the officers, and the Battalion standard bearer

Artillery Attachment Platoon:
1 Section - Mortars
2 Section - Mortars
3 Section - 30 mm Cannon (A Fegosian oddity, very effective in an ambush)

Signal Support Platoon:
Musician Section - Battalion buglers and pipers
Wireless Section
Support Section

A Company (Black Company) - 80 men
B Company (Spe'Imer Company) - 80 men
C Company (Que'vo Company) - 80 men
D Company (- 80 men
E Company - 80 men - The training company


Back at home in Alfegos, few talk of the Alfegoisse Scouts. If they do, it is in hushed voices. "Traitors, the lot of them". And in a way, it is true. Their forefathers fought for the independence of the Sil'il colony, defecting against their homeland. And in the land of eternal night, they lit that fire of revolution that burnt for nearly a century. In the deep ice forests, they had the advantage, pouncing on the armoured regiments and ripping them to pieces in brutal ambushes. Guardsmen littered the snow, their clothing and weapons looted by the victors. And so, they burnt the forests down. On the final days of the deep winter, on the vast open snowfields, they made their last stand, loyal to their freedom to the very last. As lesser regiments fled, hiding in shame for the rest of their lives, Yui'hi's great grandson stood with his piper at the forefront of his army. It was a massacre - as the infantry charged, they found that their artillery had deserted them. They charged straight into the dreaded Black Guard, and were gunned down. The few survivors fled to the buildings, to try and hold off the incessant guardsmen - yet in vain, as the Capitolium burnt. The few survivors fled when the black flag was raised, and managed to catch the last boat from the colony. An hour later, the Fegosian banner was once again raised over the ruined city state.

They found no hiding places - on the high seas, they were being hunted. Their only escape was to foreign lands, letting the currents carry them far away. Ashamed, Captain Ho'khi found himself begging at the throne of Imeriata for forgiveness. To regain the honour of his men, in exchange for a hundred lifetimes of service. And so, the Alfegoisse Scouts were formed, and soon had the chance to win back their pride. It is said that the enemies of Imeriata have considered razing their forests and flattening their cities, rather than entertain the thought of the alternative - of a sudden storm of hot lead, burning shrapnel, the dreaded booms of the thirty-millimetre cannon, and of a cold steel blade cutting proof of a victory. And so, dishonoured soldiers from every civil war have found their way to Imeriata, giving their traditional pledge to the emperor of a hundred lifetimes of service.

Rödhändern/Der Rothands or the redhands depending on who you ask is amongst the most famous of the non-Imerian volunteer regiments as they serve not only as a force that are able to fight when push comes to shove, but they do also serve as an important source of inspiration for the men in the ranks of the royal guard as a counter-revolutionary group of noblemen that have taken a stance against communism, democracy and liberalism.

However are that not the only source of fame for this regiment, as a all nobleman force do they have contacts enough to have the best equipment and may even have the authority to be deployed where the most glory can be won.


I love 'em - great uniform design and description. You must TG me the link when you first deploy them in a RP. And I'll make sure to give them a honorary mention in my upcomming factbook, as well as all their exploits and adventures under the Banner of Imeriata.

Number of regiments: 1
Do your nation have any historical preferred way of fighting: Historically, we were raiders out of necessity. Attacking quickly and delivering crippling blows and leaving the enemy in fear of the next attack. Berserkers were often employed, after ingesting an ancient mixture of fungus found only in Wolohanistan they were sent into the fray frothing at the mouth. This tradition continues to this day, in such regiments as the 10th Shock. We've always had a mix of heavy and light infantry, there was no middle man. It's all or nothing!
Do you wish to have a specific uniform: Yes
If yes how would it look like (I would however prefer if you stuck to the theme of the royal guard and use uniforms from the late nineteen century or the early twentieth century),you may describe it (so will I do them to the best of my abilities in paint), post a picture or use the pictures assigned bellow as inspiration if you wish to paint it yourself: Here's a member of the 10th Shock, just use this as inspiration though. Also, if any skin is visible it will likely by covered in tribal markings and runes.

do you have a nobility back home? No
If yes on the previous question, will there be a presence of noblemen in this regiment? N/A
What is the main ethnicity of your nations people (do if you can compare them to a RL people)? Wolohanistani's are Caucasian and most comparable to Celts.
What is the main religion of your people? We have no main religion, however many follow ancient Wolohanistani honour codes - such as "The Five Honours" with a religious fervour.
is there something the regiments will be known for? Following orders to the letter, having a very, very strict sense of honour and hitting hard.

I have to say, you're by far the best at RPing a modern Nazi nation I've seen. Right down to the national motto.

you truly are an enlightened nation

Zis nation has elements of magic, oppressed Nichtmenschen, and Nazi Super Science, zere is no realism with me

Not in the Imerian rank system they do not.


This a problem?

Not really but if they will service in the royal guard so will the nobility be given the officers positions.

Morrdh regiments do often according to their traditional fighting force serves as light infantry regiments that makes the first waves amongst dragoons, self-propelled artillery, light horse artillery and mechanized units of attack when speed is required to destroy the enemy lines and infrastructure before the battle slow down to the point where trenches must be built to protect the battle lines from hostile breakthroughs.


Nice uniform, though as purely a suggestion it might be an idea calling the Morrdh lot the Morridane Rifles....but thats up to you.[/quote]
well no, Rifle regiments is the designation I use on standard regiments amongst with regiments of the line so light infantry is a light infantry regiment, but thanks for the complement.

I liked that story and more specific background, would you have something against me simply stealing it for the explanation for your regiment (or detachment to be more specific)?

it should be noted that this thread is not for your nations elite regiments, no we do have far to many of those threads already, but this is rather about if the royal guard have any regiments built up by people from your nation.
As for all those who wondered when the noble sons of my nation will go out into battle for the glory that is multinational monarchy, so can I only say that the federation have no plan nor need to use them in the close future (sadly do I not have a war going on) but I will send you a message when they are deployed.
