94th Valhalla - Leman Russ by niner9 94th Valhalla - Leman Russ by niner9
At the time of the Damocles Gulf Crusade the 94th Valhallan was entirely an infantry regiment. With the exception of the few Sentinels for picketing and screening, the regiment was formed entirely of infantry companies. As such they lacked any heavier armor - heavier armor it would desperately need if the Imperium was to ever launch another assault into the Tau's territory. After the initial withdrawal several dozen guard regiments were left abandoned, some armored, some infantry, a handful airborne. Those armored regiments that did not hand themselves over to the Tau were soon picked apart by those guardsmen who did, as the tanks they possessed were more valuable to deserters than their loyalty to their kin. One of these unfortunate regiments was the Cadian 501st Armored, from which almost all of the 94th's tanks were procured. While a relatively small number, the 94th looted away more tanks than any of the other deserter regiments, and has at any given time several dozen operational, though not necessarily reliable. Most of the regiments other vehicles, such as Chimeras, bear the unit markings of a dozen different regiments, some from standard guard units, some from elite outfits. Their command chimera was stolen by a regiment from Ryza and has had the space marine loyalist markings defaced.

Indeed, their army was one of those left behind in the evacuation after the Damocles Gulf crusade, and given the choice between surrendering to the Tau or dying they chose life.

Sort of.....its something along the lines of the Tau don't bother the guard as long as they don't get too powerful, and the Tau get the benefit of observing humans....though they will come to each others' mutual aide

I see. I don't think the Imperium would be happy to see the 96th again now would they? You know how they can be with the likes of deserters.
