The Munda 13th were unique among the PDF regiments of Munda III. Designated as a fortress regiment the 13th garrisoned strategic points across the planet including fortresses, the Starport and the planets Defence Laser and Defence missile batteries. Most Munda PDF regiments consisted of two battalions of five companies each of around 250 men and officers. The 13th instead consisted of around forty independent companies ranging from size from 50 to 1000 men depending on the garrison requirements of their post. In keeping with their role the 13th had few armoured vehicles and little organic transport but had access to more artillery and heavy weapons.
When the Faceless King was planning his rebellion he specifically targeted the 13th infiltrating and corrupting the regiments officer corps. When the rebellion started this not only gave the Faceless King control of the planets defence network but also several strategic fortresses. In addition he gained a large body of trained fighting men and heavy weaponry.
It was quite possible that in the early days of the rebellion many of the private soldiers in the regiment were unaware that they were the rebels and by the time they realised, their mistake, it’s was to late their souls already belonged to Chaos. In the later stages of the war the 13th embraced the Dark gods and revealed in their status as the Faceless King’s elite fighting force.
Equipment wise the 13th used exactly the same equipment as loyalist PDF units which resulted in some confused battles and numerous friendly fire incidents in the early days of the rebellion. To counter this units of the 13th took to wearing scraps of red cloth, as a field sign, latter they also often sported fetishes and symbols showing their allegiance to the dark gods.
So here we have a squad of Munda 13th set up for an assault role in the great trench battles that took place around the city of Munda Prime. A mix of Blackstone Fortress traitor guard and a couple of the more guardsmen looking old OOP chaos cultists plus some head and weapon swaps.
