060 Force Organisation

Drax has been fiddling about with MS PowerPoint.

I'm too old to have been taught this stuff whilst at school, so I use the hobby to experiment and work things out - ditto Excel: if memory serves, the few spreadsheet lessons I had on archaic A3000s at school basically comprised moving the beads about on 16-bit representations of an abacus.

So please find below a few of the command structures of the 2nd Battalion, Cadian 24th. They're clickable for enlargement purposes:

These aren't necessarily set in stone, and they're (very) loosely based on British Army structures and my sketchy knowledge of 40K fluff. I'd welcome any comments or suggestions fluff-wise...or on how to use PowerPoint better!


- Drax.


  1. Very nice idea, and great layout. Thanks for sharing buddy

  2. That's pretty cool. I've done something similar to organize my guard, but I based my organizatino on US Army units. I haven't put anything on powerpoint though--neat idea.

  3. Power Point you say... Never thought of that! I don't know much about military organization, real or 40K, but the presentation looks great!

  4. This is what you guys with thousands of troops have to do.

    Us small warbands just figure it out when we get there.

  5. I do something very similar with my Guard, save for basing them off of the Canadian Army during WWII - I use the Grenade Launcher as my Bren analogue (I distrust Plasmas, though they would be much more appropriate) and Meltas as my PIATs.

    Very cool stuff.

  6. Thanks, chaps.

    I've actually shifted the minutii of this structure everso slightly recenlty, but I'm not going firm on relabeling bases or anything yet in anticipation of the forthcoming Codex re-release.


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
