Dark Heresy - Paths of Faith
Whilst the Imperial HQ provides an impregnable command point, Imperial Guard units fighting across the North Continent Theatre require a base as near to the front lines as possible for re-supply and up to date commands.
The Forward Base is a considerable construction, covering nearly 3 square kilometres and enclosing a handful of repurposed hab-blocks. The largest of these hab-blocks has been retrofitted with flak board, blast baffles and fire points to turn it into a makeshift fortress. It’s roof has been reinforced to withstand heavy troop transports in case of an emergency withdrawal as well as running combat air patrols. The existing civilian rail line running across the city has also been repurposed to bring new supplies into the forward base quickly and, relativly, safely.
The forward base is also home to several thousand Frateris Militia who have set up a sprawling shanty town among the fortified Imperial Guard positions. The militia are a danger to themselves, the guard and, on occasion, the enemy. Riots are commonplace and the Ecclesiarchy are constantly occupied trying to keep the militia’s fervour focussed on the enemy rather than on hearsay and rumours about traitors within the camp. Tensions are high between the Imperial Guard and the Frateris Militia and it would not take much for the situation to escalate to violence.
