Vostroyan 241st First Born Regiment

"Commander, Niger Blackensburg, led the assault against Necrons outside Lorn."

Is this fan-fluff? where's this from? --Acidface 13:28, 30 November 2007 (CET)

Sounds a lot like fan-fluff to me, I'd say kill it as there is no source.--Jonru 14:01, 30 November 2007 (CET)

I can't find any reference to a factory city of Polia, though it may be in the WD article, or possibly in Cities of Death (I'll have to check that later when I have access to the book again). The 5th Ed Guard codex lists the 9th Vostroyan as being wiped out during the Fall of Karak Prime in defense of the hive city. While not 100% clear it seems Karak Prime is the name of the city and not the planet. As the previous editor falls to mention sources, I'm going to update with the info from the 5th Ed Guard codex. I'll leave the reference to the fighting of Nimbosa until I can check Cities of Death.Annatar2

Hehehe and than found the reference I was looking for while trying to find a date for the Karak Prime incident. This leaves two Vostroyan IX regiments both referenced in the same book. Both regiments are listed as being wiped out out, one on Nimbosa, and fighting for Karak Prime. I can't find a date for the Karak Prime attack, but given that the Nimbosa battle happened in 790.M41, and the 5th Ed Guard Codex lists Hive Fleet Moloch as 'newly emergent' in 932.M41, its safe to assume that the unit known as 'Old Irascibles' is the refounded/newer IXth.Annatar2

Please do refrain from speculating or interpolating information. With GW nothing is safe to assume. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 09:20, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
I think its a safe bet when you consider the txt from the 5th Ed Codex saying, "This being made possible because the firstborn are one of a very few regiments that ship in reinforcemnts from their home world in order to stay at fighting strength.", in reference to the IXth. I understand what you mean about speculating with GWs fiction ;), I've been reading the stuff since Rogue Trader. There are enough rewrites and errors to shake a stick at.--Annatar2 11 January.
