597th Vahallan infantry Regiment

From 1d4chan

"The most dangerous thing on the battlefield is a Junior Officer with a compass and a Map"

– Lady General Sulla (Retired).

This regiment was the Famous Commissar Ciaphas Cain Regiment. the 597th Valhallan came into being after Cain combined the 301st and the 296th. With 301st being a Elite Stormtrooper Regiment (which are usually all dudes) while the 296th was a rural backwater Garrison regiment (made up of all women). Both were recently been made understrength due made into three course meals by the Tyranids and didn't like each other at all. Making things worse the 296's only remaining commander was inexperienced and was the one who was promoted to Colonel over the more qualified leader of the 301st. Because the Imperium is stupid, they use days served instead of merit or combat experience to determine rank. To fix this screw up. Ciaphas Cain was sent in and he had them reorganize into mixed gender units. Cain proposed with Departmento Munitorum approval that the unit be redesignated the 597. Because he's the fucking hero of the Hero of the Imperium! and the Munitorum (and the Imperium at large) are mostly inbred dumb shit paper pushers.
