Penal World

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

A Penal World is a class of Imperial world used entirely as a military-prison planet. A single such world's population consists of criminals from hundreds of different worlds. They tend to be barren worlds that have few other uses. Military formations are then raised from among the population as necessary, to serve as Penal Legion troops within Imperial Guard regiments. There they may earn redemption through their term of service, which is for life.

Penal Worlds are barren and have little, if any, native population. There are also comparable worlds used as penal colonies.
