First Gruppe of the 1stGermania I.G. Inf. Rgt.

Here is the first soldier ( Schütze) of the 1st Gruppe, 1st Zug , 1st Kompanie of the 1st Germania imperial Guard Regiment. The Germania System, home of the Galactic Knights space marine Chapter, consists of three habitable planets and one Death world. The planets are called Ruhr, Germania Prima, Germania Secunda and New Berlin. Ruhr is a forge world, Germania Prima is a death world, Germania Secunda is a agri world and New Berlin is a hive world. The 1st Germania Inf. Rgt. was raised on Germania secunda. The dialect spoken in the system is German. Of course High Gothic is the language of the Administratum of the System according to Imperial law.

The 1st Germania belongs to the so called “Landwehr” of the Germania System and is part of the Imperial Guard. There is a System defense force also wich is stationary in system in contrast to the Landwehr Rgt.s wich will be used anywhere in the Imperium of man. Most of the time the Landwehr operates in the same campaigns as  the Galactic knights .

Here is the first Schütze:

The 1st Germania is designated by the systems heraldic shield ( a black eagle on yellow). As used by the Galactic Knights, too. on the right shoulder pad there is a colors field ( in this case red for the first Zug [Platoon]), showing a white I as designation of the first Gruppe ( squad) of the platoon.

The figure is a Games Workshop Cadian trooper with a Anvil Industry head and a Eisenkern troopers helmet. The heraldic device is a selfmade decal the rest is freehand.
