The 2nd Solaritus Siege regiment is the first siege regiment to come out of the planet of Solaritus, Capital of the Solaritus sub-sector. The reason behind this is the circumstances of their Founding, when their planet was attacked by the forces of Chaos. The 2nd the ways of siege through trial by fire, and held their own for a year until the Space Marine chapter known as the Hammer Guard arrived and purged the forces of Chaos. Since then, the 2nd Solaritus have been serving as a large siege regiment, defending several planets in long wars of attrition. They have a special hatred for the forces of Chaos, as every recruit has been taught about the heretics that destroyed their families homes, although this image is heavily distorted by the Inquisition in it's efforts to hide the truth of Chaos.

History

Founding

Originally founded as a Mechanized Infantry regiment to aid in a distant war, the governor's tithe was nearly ready to be payed when the planet was besieged by a Chaos Space Marine warband, who were summoned by a heretical cult. The 2nd was prevented from leaving the planet, and fought off the warband as long as they could, soon supported by the 8th Costellian Raiders. Through this war the 2nd learned the ways of siege warfare, and became experts at it. After the war, when the tithe to the Imperium was finished and the Regiment achieved it's full strength from recruits from the surviving population, they were given the tools required to fight as a siege regiment, having achieved technology equivalent to M3.

Notable Campaigns

  • The Siege of Solaritus (960.M41)
  • The Battle of Malleo (962.M41)
  • The Siege of Unorsk (970.M41)
  • The Colaris Crusade (980.M41 -- 983.M41)

Recruitment

The 2nd Solaritus recruit from their homeworld, the civilised world of Solaritus. These recruits are conscripted into service in order to keep the regiment at optimal fighting strength. They often have trained the recruits on their homeworld to a degree before shipping them out to fill the empty spots, so that they do not waste lives by throwing untrained recruits into the fires of war. The regiment does not care about gender, conscripting men and women all across Solaritus in order to fight for the Imperium.

Regimental Doctrine and Organization

The Solaritus are a siege regiment, consisting of massive amounts of artillery, as well as thousands of infantry which are backed up by Heavy and Super Heavy tanks. They hold positions to the last man, fighting tooth and nail for every inch of ground, usually setting up large defenses around key points. When the enemy attacks, they will often shell the attackers for several hours while their tanks and other heavy weaponry blow apart the enemy's front lines. On the offensive, their infantry will follow a sheet of heavy artillery, alongside their armor.

The Solaritus are a well equipped siege regiment, and are equipped with many heavy weapons such as autocannons and lascannons, as well as weapons such as the Hotshot volleygun, and carapace armor for higher-ranking officers. In terms of artillery they are equipped with Basilisks and Griffon heavy mortar carriers, while in terms of armor they have Leman Russ Vanquishers and Leman Russ Demolishers, backed up by Stormsword Super Heavy Tanks.

As a siege regiment, the Solaritus are a larger than average regiment, due to the possibility of being stuck in a warzone for several years. Many of these are conscripts, waiting to fill in for the guardsmen that fall during the siege. The 6000 soldiers are split up into 4 battalions made up of 10 companies, each with 150 men. Each battalion has 2 artillery companies, 2 armor companies, and 6 standard infantry companies
