I. Achaian Invasion Regiment – Homer in Warhammer 40,000

A Reading from Homer by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema
Homer-a-Day, Day 17: Achaians

I. Achaian Invasion Regiment
Pulled together from across the myriad of asteroid states and lunar kingdoms of their home system, the I. Achaian represents a seldom divergence from established local Departmento tithing practice. Despite shared equipment and ways of war, the regiment, marching under a great many different lunar and tribal banners and sporting a host of personal heraldic crests, has a far from uniform appearance. The decision to form such a single large regiment instead of the traditional smaller independent regiments was made to meet the demand for a unit more resistant to the rigours of long term attritional warfare and aggressive pacification campaigns.

Homer-a-Day – one Homer inspired Warhammer 40,000 article per day, for one month. Pure hubris, incited when a stroll through our own archives led first to reexamining the Odysseus Pattern Astartes Greatbow and then to the exchange quoted above.

Don’t uncork what you can’t contain.
