The Death Korps Of Krieg were once a militia group, but eventually grew into a strong military force. Now employed by various planets against the Trade Confederation, The Death Korps Of Krieg are a prestigious military group who fight in older ways of Trench Warfare. There gun emplacements and knowledge of artillery make them fierce defenders, as well as overwhelming attackers. There weapons are equipped with bayonets, standard issue and they are trained in proficiency with them. The Death Korps fight until there is no man left on the field. The motto they commonly say is remembered by those who join and survive rough, and live action combat training.
"WE WERE BORN IN THE TRENCHES OF WAR! WE DIE IN THE TRENCHES OF WAR!"
Recruitment for members of the regiments of the Death Korps of Krieg is similar to many other Imperial worlds throughout the Imperium and conscription depends on varying circumstances. Though their harsh training methods, combat doctrines and regimental organisation are not in themselves unique amongst the units of the Imperial Guard, the Death Korps regiments are both unorthodox and extreme in their application. Tested, selected and relentlessly trained almost from birth for their appointed role as Imperial Guardsmen, the rates of fatality and injury during training are high amongst Death Korps recruits. To ensure that only the toughest and best make it into the new regiment, training is brutal and quickly weeds out the weak and unworthy, for fear and weakness are not tolerated. The minds and characters of the young prospective Guardsmen are purposefully broken and remade stronger, just as their bodies are trained to withstand hardship and endure suffering that would kill other men -- a task already begun by the mere fact of living a life on blighted Krieg.
