The Arcadians are Imperial Guard Regiments from the hive world of Arcadia. Arcadia has produced hundreds of regiments; once a regiment is disbanded or destroyed, a successor Arcadian regiment will often assume its number in order to keep alive the traditions and history of the regiment. It is common for Arcadian Guardsmen to have a spider facial tattoo, signifying their membership in Arcadia's Cult of the Spider.[1]

Notable Arcadian Regiments

The 26th Arcadian are known to have been deployed to the Scion of Terra, a naval vessel, during the Third War for Armageddon. They defended the vessel when an Ork Kill Kroozer attacked. When the Orks were repulsed they launched a counter-boarding action. They were later nominated for commendation by the captain of the ship, Commodore Demus Paskal.[4]
