History
Newly formed, this Penal Regiment comes from The Colony, the misnomer for its homeworld that is more a giant prison than it is anything else. From the myriad of prisons criss-crossing the planet, millions of men and women are pulled to form the various Regiments. So far, it has founded 665 regiments of penal soldiers. Untold millions of former Imperial citizens pushed into conscription rather than be executed only to find that they made the wrong choice. Of the 665 regiments created on The Colony, 640 have been completely annihilated while the remaining 25 have upwards of 90% casualty rates. And, since it is cheaper to form a new regiment than to send reinforcements to existing ones, the 666th has been newly minted and is something of an anamoly among The Colony's normal regimental construction; the 666th is formed entirely of former Imperial Guard, Navy or PDF servicemen and women turned convicts. Due to their "discipline" when compared with former regiments, the 666th does not usually sport explosive collars - they are reserved for only the most unpredictable of the bunch.

Re-equipped and outfitted as line infantry, the purpose of the 666th is to be as flexible as possible whether that means holding the line against an overwhelming enemy assault, charging the trenches to soften them up for other Imperial forces, or performing clandestine operations behind enemy lines without much chance of success, the 666th have been "trained" to do just that. While it is obvious that the Departmento Munitorum cares little for the regiment, they have been outfitted with plenty of combat drugs including Stimm and Frenzon, vicious close quarters ranged weapons and plenty of ordnance. It seems that wherever enemy resistance is the stiffest, The Bastards have been optomized to break them in half - or die trying.

Faster than some and tougher than most, the brutal conditions on The Colony have made those who survived to become Bastards strong, fast and tough. They are quick thinkers, able to fenagle, haggle, and trade their way into getting what is necessary to survive. They have learned to become resiliant to what life throws at them and faster than their opponents; because on The Colony speed and strength means life. Anything else means death.

Leading the 666th is the man who has given them their trademark name. Colonel Dathys Minst is young for his rank - often referred to as a wunderkind or perhaps just always in the right place at the right time. He sees his command over the Bastards as something of a road bump on his way up the Imperial Guard Hierarchical ladder. He views them as his responsibility yet knows the worth and stigma of a Penal regiment and thus, sees them less as his children and more of a nuisance. He is quick to give rivetting speeches to his men before battle complete with tales of heroism, yet some of his previous junior officers have voiced their concerns that his overconfidence and ambition have led to great loss of life within the ranks as they strove to quench their commander's thirst for glory. In other words, he is perfect for a Penal regiment.

Colors
The 666th are all issues black BDUs and standard black flak armor. Every convict has their prisoner ID number painted across the back shoulders of both their armor and their BDU blouses, as well as having it tattooed on their right forearms. All uniforms sport regimental patches on chest with company patches on the right shoulder and squad pathches on the left. This means that most of the 666th has "666" on their chest. Some Bastards who belong to a Company, Platoon and Squad of the same number often keep the three on their right shoulder. For instance, A bastard from 5th Co. 5th Platoon, 5th Squad might have "555" stitched on their right shoulder with "666" across their chests.

The regimental colors are black and white with Companies having their own distinct color scheme within this.

Heraldry
Four squares of black and white, an Imperial Aquila sits with both eyes closed (as opposed to the normal one open and one closed) with chains criss-crossing its chest. In its talons it clutches a lasgun. Across the top, one word is written: "Bastards." On the bottom it states: "Penitence In Death"
