Ionov Guard

The Ionov Guard is apart of the Imperial Guard, and boasts a number of regiments that as a whole number in the low millions They are recruited from the Hive world of Ionov, in the Astoth sub-system. Naturally, they follow the standard organization and combat doctrine of standard forces of the Guard. They boast an adequate amount of armour and artillery pieces to support the bulk of infantry.

It is commanded by General Dorian Marx, a native from the planet who is most well known for his stubborn and effective- whilst costly- defense of Ionov from a splinter fleet of Hive Fleet Kraken in addition to a stalwart defense of the planet Palia against Orks and a 6 month offensive campaign against traitor guard forces.

Overall, Ionov Regiments are known for their iron discipline even in the face of unending horrors and will hold the ground until the last man. Their reconnaissance and light infantry are known to be rather good shots- as is expected. They spend an uncharacteristically large amount of time fighting together as a large division, rather than being divided among the stars to different fronts- as such, they coordinate very well together. Their favoured terrain is urban warfare. Ionov colours are a simple grey and closely resemble Cadian Shock Troops in terms of flak armour styling.
