Greetings, Guardsmen!

In this week’s edifying issue, we have a simple – yet highly educational – task for you to perform.

As a member of the Astra Militarum, you must treat every sphere of your life as a battlefield to be conquered. In the canteen, you will best your human frailties, like hunger, or disgust at a particularly chunky batch of corpse-starch, in brutal melee using your knife and spork. When at rest, you will wrestle fatigue and tiredness into submission. Likewise, The Regimental Standard is the lasgun of periodicals, and to read it is to fire searing beams of enlightenment into the beast of misinformation.*

Even during your recreational time with fellow Guardsmen, you must not cease in your lust for battle. While you must trust in your fellow soldiers with your life, you must also regard them with the utmost suspicion – any one of them could be a traitor, and allowing a single traitor to go unopposed could lead to the death of your entire unit.

To aid you in finding the betrayers in your midst, we have prepared an informative poster:



We hope this helps, Guardsmen!

* Please note – using your Regimental Standard as an actual weapon is both ineffective and forbidden by regulations concerning the desecration of Imperial writ.
