The Astra Militarum, formerly known as the Imperial Guard, represents the vast and disciplined military force of the Imperium of Man in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Comprised of countless regiments from diverse worlds, the Astra Militarum is the backbone of the Emperor's military might, deployed across the galaxy to defend humanity against myriad threats.


There are many renowned regiments within the Astra Militarum. Cadians are disciplined and well-drilled soldiers hailing from the fortress world of Cadia, known for their resilience and steadfastness in the face of chaos. On the other hand, Catachan Jungle Fighters, originating from the death world of Catachan, are experts in guerrilla warfare, thriving in dense jungles and hostile environments. Tallarn Desert Raiders are another distinctive regiment known for their expertise in desert warfare. Hailing from the desert world of Tallarn, these soldiers are adept at hit-and-run tactics and mobile warfare, utilizing their familiarity with arid landscapes to outmaneuver their foes. These name but a few of the regiments that serve Terra.


At the forefront of Astra Militarum armies, the Tank Commander leads armored columns into battle. Operating iconic vehicles like Leman Russ battle tanks, the Tank Commander ensures the devastating firepower of the Astra Militarum is brought to bear upon the enemy. Commissars, stern and unyielding officers, maintain order within the ranks through both inspiration and, if necessary, ruthless discipline.


In the grim darkness of the 41st millennium, the Astra Militarum stands as a bulwark against the countless threats that seek to extinguish the light of humanity, embodying the might of the Imperium in its vast and diverse regiments.
