Expedition Fleets (Hektor Heresy)

From 1d4chan

This page details people, events, and organisations from the /tg/ Heresy, a fan re-working of the Warhammer 40,000 Universe. See the /tg/ Heresy Timeline and Galaxy pages for more information on the Alternate Universe.

The Expedition Fleet or Expeditionary Fleet was the standard unit of interstellar conquest during the Great Crusade. These great formations fluctuated in their exact composition, but were generally based around one or two core contingents. Outside of the Expedition Fleets proper were a great multitude of semi-independent Compliance Groups who mainly fought in clean-up and support operations and thoroughly independent Rogue Traders Militant ranging ahead of the Expedition Fleets.

As noted, Expedition Fleets did not have a consistent make-up and the formations listed are only those most heavily associated with the fleet. The commander given is the officer commanding at the beginning of the Hektor Heresy.
