2nd Megalea River Wardens
On their homeworld of Megalea, the river wardens patrol the extensive channel systems, rotting industrial harbours, and wild rivers criss crossing the planet and through which most of its economic lifeblood runs. As a regiment inducted into Imperial service, the 2nd River Wardens begin each deployment with constructing Alphios river monitors from the modular kits carried by the regiment’s supply train, then commence to their traditional role of riverine security and warfare on whatever alien world the currents of war have driven them to.
