Gaurdsmen are the fighters, killers and warriors of the 41st Millennium. Some may be members of the formal army, or even part of the Imperial Gaurd. Others may be nothing more than mercenaries and thugs. Some may even be convicted criminals, fitted with explosive collars and sentenced to serve in penal legions to pay for their terrible crimes. Needless to say, Gaurdsmen are neither smart nor sociable. They more than make up for this with their ability to make things die in loud and unpleasant ways.
