The Anaxes Rifles
(Personal Lore?)​

A planetary militia regiment under the Republic, now subsumed into the Imperial War machine as an irregular unit used for less sensitive tasks, such as planetary occupation.

When the Republic fell, Anaxes surrendered peacefully and its ground forces (The Rifles, The Hussars [Armour] and The Sappers [Engineers and Artillery]) were taken into direct rule by the Empire. Their senior officers were removed, along with any others unable to accept the change in regime.

Colours: Dark Green and Black
Motto: Strike fast; strike true.
March: Quick - The Canyon Rider’s charge
Slow - Funeral march for an Enemy​
Battle Honours: [Redacted by Imperial scribes]

Battalions:
1st - “The Forest Walkers” (Dismounted Infantry); Light Green Flash
2nd - “The Canyon Watchers” (Dismounted Infantry); Beige Flash
3rd - “The Vipers” (Mechanised Infantry); Red Flash

1st Battalion
A proud traditional unit, the RQ keeps reporting the new imperial dress uniforms missing and so on ceremonial occasions the Battalion still wears their green jackets and black trousers. At the purge, its CO, Adjt and roughly half the company commanders were removed.

Bands Coy
For historical reasons, the band are the Heavy Support Gunners and provide bespoke teams when required.

Intent:
Provide an opportunity to explore how professional soldiers might react to the change from Republic to Empire within the structure of a military hierarchy.

The broader military structure has been provided to allow other members to expand upon if desired. Drop me a line and I'll include it :)

Really love this. This would definitely be personal lore, but I am looking forward to seeing what you do with this in the RP. Approved.
