Default Ranks/Command Structure in the PDF

As the title says, I am wondering what ranks there are in the PDF. Well, I suppose the first thing I need to know is wether each planets PDF has a different command structure and rank system, before going in to detail about the actuall ranks.

I don't think that the rank systems will vary all that differently, except perhaps in their names. For a ranking system, I'd think that they'd use something similar, if not the same as, the Guard one.

This is coming from the top of my head, but I believe it's right. From lowest to highest.

Trooper
Lance Corporal
Corporal
Sergeant
Lieutenant
Captain
Major
Lieutenant Colonel
Colonel
Marshall
General
Lord-General
Lord-General Militant
Lord Solar/Warmaster

Legio, the last 3 would not be on there, as those are "larger" Names, IE ones to denote those that are above PDF level. They are Imperial Guard, not PDF.

No, he asked for Planetary Defense Force ranks, not Imperial Guard.

Sorry if I sound pissy, I've got a headache, I'm tired, and I have to mow the lawn....

He did ask for guard ranks Icer, and we'll speak no more of this.


However the list Legio Mortis gives omitted some ranks in the higher echelons I think.

Lord Solar/Warmaster (seldom exists)
Lord Commander Militant of the Imperial Guard and/or Lord Commander Militant (no idea of the distinction here)
Lord General Militant
Lord Marshal
Lord General
General
Lieutenant General
Major General
Brigadier



And I'm not sure how that entire bit in the middle with Lord Castellans and such fits in.
