your army could use face cards as ranks. like a commander would be an ace

or a seargent could be a jack.

or they are smugglers.....gamblers a private army of a drug lord.

That could make some funny stories. I mean, stuff happens when you put a couple hundred guys out in space with nothing to do...

For those who don't know Pavonis is the planet where the Nightbringer awoke. Ive already got a commander down to. General millitant Antaeus dalnes. Known as thunderfist for his trademark power fist. As a youth he slaved away in a mine as a menial. When the necrons awoke he and his fellows where forced to fight along side to protect the mines. He single handedly slew three necrons with only a pickaxe the regimental commander saw this and quickly drafted him. The rest is history ;D

well... youve got a planet, role, commander, planets history, and the regiment number/nickname... sounds to me like your all set background wise unless your useing doctrines which would warrant a bit of regimental history if you wanna be fluffy.


which i do. 8)
