I put this together for a Role Play , but it also gave me a reason to bulk out the fluff off one of my regiments.

Numbers in [Brackets] are the number of men.

If you can get past the walls of text ; enjoy. armata_PDT_01.gif

The 12th Krieg Sapper Regiment and the battle of Giden Hive.


After nearly 4 years of siege, Gidon Hive was yet to be re-captured from rebel forces, Lieutenant Colonel
Everard commander of the Regiment, proposed a tunnel leading from behind their current siege fortifications deep into the centre of the under-hive, once there a large nuclear weapon could be placed , by-passing the Hives certain wall and void shield defences.

His plan was swiftly approved , and work began on the tunnel , after non-stop work by the regiment it finished in just 4 months , despite digging deep into the planets bedrock.
Every Combat Engineer Company was used to escort the bomb to the centre of the under-hive , however , when they where little over half way the tunnel was discovered by under-hive gangs.

Enemy forces soon started to fill the tunnel , forcing the Kriegers to fight their way to the objective.
The advance ground to a halt under the weight of fire from the enemy , and the attack was in real danger of failing , giving the enemy a live nuclear weapon and an open tunnel to the rear areas of the besieging forces. A recipe for disaster.

Everard saw the situation and ordered all available Pioneer Grenadiers units to follow him and his command squad down into the tunnel. The tunnel was to be basted shut behind them , denying the enemy use of it should the attack fail.
The addition of the Colonel and the Grenadiers tipped the stalemate that the tunnel battle had descended into. Burning a path towards their objective with heavy flamers and bayonets they reached the centure of the under hive.

Once in position Everard ordered his men to set off the weapon , knowing full well their only route of retreat was blasted closed.
With ever growing enemy numbers surrounding them , Colonel Everard gave his last orders.
“Laugh and burn them for Krieg.”

The weapon detonated , its blast destroying the foundations of the hive , which promptly fell into the crater , shattering it completely and killing almost all rebel forces.
No shockwave or radiation reached the other besieging forces , as hopped , the certain wall and imploding void shields sheltered everyone outside of the hive.
The dust thrown into the atmosphere gave the planet 2 years of near constant winters.

Everard and over 90% of his Regiment were killed , but the rebellion had been crushed , utterly.
What remained of the 12th Krieg Sappers, [Mostly behind the lines staff and those to badly wounded to be able to accompany the Colonel.] were pulled off of the front line. [Which remained in place to destroy any enemy forces that survived the destruction of the hive , no quarter was given.]

An officer on the generals staff apparently later said ; “The Regiment has been reduced to an Imp of it’s former self.” when looking at the number of manpower that survived.

For reasons unknown the remains of the XXX found this highly amusing , and adopted “Laughing Imps” as their unofficial title in memory of Colonel Everards last order.

Two years later the regiment was rebuilt on Krieg. A new regimental banner was woven. [As the old one had been annihilated with the Colonel and his men.] The new one depicted a laughing imp on a background of nuclear fire , within the confines of a fortified wall.
This is the banner the regiment currently carries to war , under the command of Colonel Engel.
