Default Vostroyan questions

Some Vostroyan questions now... :P

1. What are the cities/how many cities on Vostroya?

2. Are there any females in the Firstborn?

3. Are Vostroyans only good at fighting in cities?

4. What class planet is Vostroya?

5. Where is Vostroya in the galaxy?

6. What other planets are in the Vostroyan system?

Well, from what I have read it would be like this

1. No idea

2. Yes , as they specifically say every firstborn.

3. They may be cityfight specialist, but they do get deployed in other settings.

4. Forge World

5. No idea.

5. So far there did not state, but it is assumed that they only have one inhabitable planet in their system.

1. Unspecified. However it has a population of 9,300,000,000 or about one and a third of the population of the earth so take the number of cities on earth and add a third for a rough idea.

2. No, The white Dwarf article on them specifically states that it is the first born son.

3. THey do specialise in city fighting but owing to the fact that models on the games workshop sight have snow, grass and city bases then it can be safe to say they are deployed in other zones.

4. No, it is not a forge world, it is an industrial world (difference being a forge world is owned by the admech and an industrial world by the Imperium

5. To the galactic north north east of the eye of terror and to the galactic north of the great despot of Degruk. it showed a map in a white dwarf. And, although it is not marked on this, this map may help.

6. They have stated, Vostroya is the fifth out of seven planets in its system though the seventh planet is restricted by the ordo maleus.


Almost all this info is in UK WD 317

I refuse to believe that the Vostroyans are cityfight specialists. Their uniforms are big, clunky and shiny. Not something that you would want in a cityfight. I think that the WD states that they are extreme conditions soldiers, which makes more sense, given their uniforms.

The WD says they "the Firstborn are trained in the most adverse of conditions ... learn the skills of close-quarter combat and strict firing drills."

Those skills would be put to best use in a cityfight IMO but could be almost as useful in a jungle or any area of dense terrain.

But their uniform really suggests otherwise. The ideal uniform would consist of light, loose clothing and dull colors, not bulky armor with shiny gold trim.

maybe their officers are real jobsworths when it comes to uniform ;D (thinking of zulu) and they want their soldiers to look pretty on parade.

It would suggest otherwise but since when was the Imperium efficient. They may even wear armour originaly designed for cermonial use but due to lost knowledge has become the primary form of armour in their armies.

Please, the Guard aren't stupid. If they need to go into a city and have to choose between the force that is presently equipped with light, mottled gray uniforms and the force that is equipped with bulky armor that you can see shining from a mile away, who do you think that they will send in?

Well, if the shiny cossacks are much more well trained to fight in such a situation than a standard force that has simply been given grey camo, then they could well send in the Vostrayans. And as for saying that Guard are practical...have you seen the Praetorians lately?
