327th Fantoma Infantry Regiment

I've been working on a bit of my background "fluff" for BG-82, and decided that I would do up a command team from the 327th Infantry Regiment. Battle Group 82, has 5 regiments assigned to it under the command of Marshal Argos (myself).  Seeing that I have units from all of the others I thought it best to paint up at least one unit from the 327th. If for no other reason as to be able to say that I have one unit from every Regiment in my fluff.


327th Fantoma Infantry Regiment

Home-world: Fantoma, Segmentum Tempestus
Current Location: Near the Veiled Region, Segmentum Tempestus
Commander:  Colonel Flinn
Type: Infantry Regiment

Initial grounding of the Regiment, was delayed by unusual Warp activity in the region of space around Fantoma. Based on these anomalies it was decided to postpone all Grounding for until Warp had settled down and the everlasting light of the Emperor had returned to watch over the celebrations.  On its first deployment a troop transport carrying 66.6% of the Regiment never made it to the Departmento Munitorium rendezvous point, having been lost in the warp.  The following 2 years found the Regiment deploying throughout the neighboring sub-sectors to act primarily as a show of force to keep the local population true to the Emperor.


Permanently reassigned to Battle Group 82, the 327th has just recently transited in system and is preparing for deployment in the defense of Avenweddon.  This has been marked as a joyous day within the Regiment, as they will be fighting alongside 2 other Regiments from Fantoma, and that they have been assigned to the infamous Battle Group 82.  



  1. Very nice fluff. That first entry is a really dramatic, cinematic setup, I like it.

  2. Thanks Colonel! I've been working on my fluff for years now, but have never really got it all down on paper in a presentable format. Thanks to a couple of other blogs out there (yours included), I've finally decided to get the whole thing written down.

  3. COOL! I love it.
    I had forgotten that Battle Group 82 was in Segmentum Tempestus. My 5th Praetorian Battle Column is out near the Veiled Region too, over toward the Bakka side of the Segmentum. If my chaps ever get themselves out of the campaign that they are currently fighting would you be interested in some fluff cross over?

  4. Humm BG 82 in the Segmentum Tempestus ? I might write them into Devos IV as well...

  5. Excellent stuff, really love the shoulder flashes on the minis too!
