Portion of Fluff:

Torhal is a former hive world, albeit small.* The rich mineral veins within the crust of Torhal made it a lucrative venture and as a result millions colonized the planet about a quarter the size of mighty terra.* Hive cities grew with the population and soon exhausted the mineral veins found there.* Unable to make tithe due to the loss in resources the governor of Torhal was forced to cede power to Inquisitor Dominus who started the Torhal transformation.* All children, boys and girls, under the age of five were forcibility removed from their familiesí houses and entered into the newly built Academy; their families were instructed to board ships and colonize other worlds.* The children were instructed in the imperial faith until their teens in which they were given a lasgun.* These newly founded troopers removed the remnant population that did not leave by force killing their former families without question as ordered.* The entire planet and population of Torhal in time was entirely converted into a garrison, the old factories replaced with marching grounds and shooting ranges.* As the first generation of Torhal Soldiers aged they were allowed to retire which has lead to the custom of Torhal Soldiers being forcibly honorably dismissed upon attaining the age of 50 becoming Torhalís ruling caste.* These retired soldiers form the administration of Torhal, taking over for the Inquisitor when he died centuries ago.* The Torhal ruling caste forms all decisions as to the location Torhalís armies are sent to, responding to the needs they believe most pressing.

Children on Torhal are taught about the imperial faith from birth by ďEmperorís OfficersĒ, Torhalian Men and Women who have proven their faith and courage upon hundred if not thousands of battlefields.* These men and women are quite similar to Commissars in almost every respect except for their expanded responsibilities as teachers of the imperial creed and they are completely trained on Torhal by Torhalians instead of the Schola Progenium.* Upon reaching the age of 16 the children join the ranks of the Torhalian Green Guard and are allowed to fire a lasgun for the first time.* Little time is spent on training the Torhalian Green Guard as they are shipped off to a battlefield nearly a week after their 16th birthday.* Guided by Emperorís Officers, who wear green details to show solidarity with their charges, in every battle they fight in they are duty bound to never give ground unless directly ordered to by the Officer core.* After 5-7 years of grueling combat the Torhalian Green Guard become Torhalian Red Guard in which many will serve in the rest of their lives ever guided by the Emperorís Officers.* All Torhalian Red Guard and the Emperor's Officers assigned to the unit paints over the Green Guard's green armor with a deep red symbolizing the desire for revenge against those who spilt the blood their fellow soldiers in the Emperor's service.* 1 in 50 recruits make it past thirty let alone reach the age of fifty.*

The most courageous Men and Women find themselves in Officer Training; it is here that the ranks of Division, Regiment, Company, and Platoon leaders are refilled. Officers always wear the red armor of the Red Guard to war. The Officer Training Academy also recruits the Emperorís Officers and trains them to spiritually and pyhsically lead Torhal to war.* Torhal now represents one of the most devoted fighting forces within the imperial guard.* Every child born on Torhal is given to the state as a soldier; no one escapes duty to the emperor.

precicely. also, the smaller size yeilds less gravity. you may want rules to take advantage of this, like drop troops or somthing to that effect.

I am going to avoid using the drop troop rule as I believe it is overused.* Fluff explanation?* Green Guard are not trained in advanced tactics such as grav-chuting and the red guard hone their skills all over the galaxy and therefore the weak gravity of Torhal is not reflected in their training.

More Fluff to come soon all about Taber!

as a suggestion, go into detail about the role of women in combat situations, be it medics, specialised units, or even just segragration in their army, or give some depth to the breeding "rituals" (is it an ann rand novel society or can they make their own decisions?)
