    I'm also having to apologise for the same thing. I've got stuff sketched down on paper, just need to transfer onto the template on line so need time on a PC not my tiny phone screen.

    I'd thought of the PC and ended up agreeing with some of the previous posts about how many games turn into all specialists with no regulars so the psyker will probably just be a regular Guardsman now. A little easier RP wise and make it more like a traditional Guardsman squad!

    I don't know I have played with four people an all stormtrooper mission and that was fun. Especially how we went out with a Nuke being used to go out with a bang.

    You could go with Commisar Training squad in that regard from the old rogue Trader Compilation. (A free squad no less in an imperial guard army!)

    It's a Bullpup Lasgun, not a Lascarbine.
    Also Well-Provisioned grants +2 Weeks of Rations, +2 Spare Clips for primary Weapon (free choice if multiple choices are available), +1 of each type of starting grenade. You stated it as only being +1 across the board.

    2 Clips. It's mentioned in the Errata that non-specificed ammo amounts for additional weapons are 2 Clips worth of ammo. Also yes since you start with a grenade launcher, you are allowed to pick all your grenades to be grenade launcher ammo if you so choose. Remember to designate which type of grenade they all are, if they are Ammo for the GL or if they are handheld handgrenades.

    Soooooo bucking the trend of Weapon Specialists for right now. I’ve rolled a Stormy Boy, how do you handle those pesky large cumbersome and generally annoying backpacks? I could have a total of 3, seems crazy to carry that and the full load out for his bull pup....

    Usually they are left with the main supply area and only one is brought along. I have made a homebrew version of a twin-powerpack that allows for a single reload, however that costs more than what is left for the regiment, pointwise.
    But all in all the spare powerpacks could be on the valkyrie and be LZ-dropped after initial impact?

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Catfall: Gymnastic ability and natural balance enables the character to fall great distances without harm. The character automatically reduces the distance of all falls by a number of metres equal to his Agility Bonus, ignoring this distance as if it did not exist. In addition, the character adds +20 to their Acrobatics Skill Tests when using the Jump Special Skill Use as it pertains to reducing Damage from falling.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Deadeye Shot:The character’s rock-steady hand and hawk-like eyesight make him a dreaded marksman. No target, however agile or small, can escape his crosshairs. When making a Called Shot (see page 244) ranged attack, the character reduces the penalty by 10 (so a –20 becomes a –10 instead).
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Die Hard: Through either willpower or sheer stubbornness, the character refuses to die. When he suffers from blood loss, he may roll twice to avoid death.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Iron Jaw: The character has taken blows from Orks and given back as good as they got. The character can bounce back from most strikes without ill effects. If ever Stunned, a successful Toughness Test allows the character to ignore the effects.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Quicky Draw:The character has practised so frequently with his weapons that they practically leap into his hands in response to a simple thought. The character can draw and ready a weapon as a Free Action when the character is armed with a Pistol or Basic class ranged weapon, or a melee weapon that can be wielded in one hand.
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Distrustful of Authority:–20 penalty to Interaction Skill Tests made to interact with unfamiliar figures of authority (such as new Commissars, officers from other regiments. Senior members of the Ecclesiarchy and Adeptus Mechanicus, and other such individuals) and impose the same penalty on Interaction Skill Tests made on them by those people.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Independent Operation: The Comrades of a frontier world character count as being within Cohesion so long as they are within 15 metres of their Player Character.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Well-Provisioned: The regiment increases the number of clips for their main ranged weapon and the number of weeks’ rations they carry as standard by +2, and gain an additional grenade of each type in their standard kit (if applicable). If the regiment contains vehicles, this also grants a +10 bonus on all Logistics tests to obtain fuel and parts for repairing and maintaining those vehicles.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    [b]Mental Trauma: Members of this regiment begin play with 1d10 Insanity Points. Any time that a member of this regiment fails a Willpower-based Test by three or more Degrees of Failure, he becomes lost in traumatic recollection, and is Stunned until the end of his next Turn.

    Background
    Spoiler
    Show

    Daryon's father was the owner of a paradrop training school, and Daryon himself learned the ropes from a young age. Usually tasked with collecting and lugging back the parachutes, and any other grunt labor that needed done, his only real ambition in life was to find a wife and settle down. He thought he'd found that when Aeris came to his doorstep, bloody and beaten with only the clothes on her back. Over the course of a few weeks, Daryon got her back on her feet, and even had found a job for her as a clerk at a fuel depot that his father had contacts at.

    Unknown to him, the depot was a front for a local crime ring, who used the warehouse to store stolen shipments of food. Aeris got involved in the operation, and when the money from a deal went missing, she convinced Daryon to run away with her and join the PDF, spinning a story about how they would see far off corners of the planet, and get away from their immediate problems. Daryon, longing for the life he'd dreamt of, blindly followed her.

    Daryon found he had an aptitude for heavy firepower, and kept Aeris close. She's more than happy to oblige, as she rarely has to carry a heavy load with Daryon shouldering most of it, and anything that wants to hurt her has to come through a firestorm of dakka first. Their time serving with the PDF was full of trouble. They barely kept ahead of reprimands and accusations, being shifted from squad to squad, accidentally fulfilling Aeris's promise of seeing the rest of the world as they were constantly shipped out to be someone else's problem. It became no surprise when they were selected as part of a recruitment drive for the Imperial Guard, probably some officer's idea of getting them far enough away from the planet to no longer cause any trouble.

    They've survived together through Calixis, with most of their squad killed as they were almost overrun, and on the mission to the Periphery, they had gotten separated during the evacuations. It wasn't until the end of the campaign that they found each other again, both thinking that the other was dead. They've vowed not to get separated again.

    Due to Aeris's tendency towards trouble, the duo gets shuffled from squad to squad, and have developed a reputation for being difficult. They have just recently gotten shuffled into this squad, having left their last squad missing several pieces of gear with nobody knowing where they might have gone.

    Drop Troop Inspiration

    Drop Troop Inspiration 2

    Every time I play Only War and we go grenadiers or Drop Troops, I use these videos to put some pep in my step.

    Primo Victoria both times...but cinematically so very satisfying

    Also...what sorta TV show we going for here? 40k Band of Brothers? Generation Kill? Operation Overlord? Music could vary depending on how this drama plays out.

    I quite like that first one. As for the second, Primo Victoria is a great song(hearing that one in concert was amazing), but not one I'd link to drop troops.

    List of Issues - Some are marked with Major, some with Minor. Minor issues are just small nitpicks that can be corrected, but doesn't need to be.
    __________________________

    Janwin - Curtis Llagwelian
    Your Aptitudes have been Bolded wrongly, it's missing the second [/B] part. - Major.

    You could potentially add those Distrustful of Authority penalties to interaction skill tests under the skills, where there's the area made for such penalties and bonuses that come from various ways. - Minor.

    Your Talents aren't containing any description of what they each do - Minor.

    Lasgun Variable Setting should be added to your Bullpup Lasgun. found on Page 175. - Major.

    You haven't noted what type your ammo is. the chargepacks should be marked with (Basic) or some such, to indicate that it's chargepacks for a Basic-sized weapon, like a lasgun. You also haven't noted which of your grenades are handgrenades and which are for the grenadelauncher. you also haven't added in your 2 clips of Grenade launcher ammo (two full reloads worth of Frag Grenades). - Major.

    Backstory is still missing. - Major.
    ----------------------

    Etherion - Sergeant Grim
    Missing Description - Minor/Major.

    You're missing the 0 in 0/100 for our Corruption and Insanity Tracks. - Minor.

    You don't need to write which skills are Known, Trained, Skilled, etc. Just write +10 after the skill to note it's Trained, etc. - Minor.

    You're missing the Low-Tech Weapons Training. - Major.

    Your Regimental Abiliities haven't been added to the Abilities/Traits/Implants/Mutations & Malignancies Spoiler. - Major.

    Your weapons' special qualities doesn't mention what they each do. - Minor.
    Also, all Lasweapons got the Lasgun Variable Setting Ability (unless otherwise stated). It's found on page 175. - Major.

    Your Chargepacks should be marked as Basic Chargepacks, like you marked the others as Pistol Chargepacks. - Minor.

    Remember to remove gear from the Gearlist you've already added elsewhere, like your Bullpup Lasgun, the ammo, grenades, etc. - Major.

    Your Backstory is still missing. - Major.

    Made changes, though with skills and how I have it separated by known/trained/etc., if it's alright I'd like to keep it like that for organisational purposes. Just lets me see at a glance how good I am at various things, plus how hard it'll be to upgrade it.
    Also, haven't had a chance to hammer out a backstory, will do so soon.

    Also, another song option: Universe on Fire

    feel free to keep them separated like you wish. It was just a recommendation.


    And I started the whole music links just to reference possible Regimental songs, not 'themes' galore.
