Metallican Sharpshooters (209th)

Metallican Sharpshooters (209th)

Although there are countless manufactorums in the Calixis sector, many would say there is only one place to get a quality gun: Gunmetal City on the capital world of Scintilla. Guns are so much a part of the culture that almost all residents of the city go about openly armed all of the time. When the hive levies troops as part of the planet’s Imperial tithe, they leave equipped with the best rifles one can find.

While Gunmetal City has tithed a number of marksman regiments over the millennia, both mechanized and on foot, the 209th distinguished itself during the early years of the war on Phyrr when it was sent to help repel Waaugh! Bloodclaw. Once sedition took root in the Spinward Front, the regiment was replenished and reassigned to battle the Severan Dominate. Col. Augustine has done a tremendous job training the new troops, and his quiet, steady command reassures the soldiers that they will earn glory in the God-Emperor’s name.
