Vlka Fenryka – Legion Structure

Taking inspiration from the collation of information by Drake Setta at Battle Bunnies following the release of Inferno the following post looks to replicate and build upon this documentation to outline the fighting structure and organisation of the Rout:

Legion size, estimated at the time of the Burning of Prospero to be 95,000 to 100,000 legionaries. Inferno outlines information on eleven of the Greay Companies, totalling 73,200 legionaries as part of the Censure Host. The list below looks to build on this within information collated from Horus Heresy sources:

The legion is divided into Thirteen Great Companies:

Onn Company ‘the Breakers of Rings’
Jarl: Gunnar Gunnhilt ‘Lord Gunn’

Numbers  committed to Prospero: 3,000 Legionaires

Tra Company ‘the Eagle’s Keepers’

Close assault infantry and support armour
Numbers  committed to Prospero: 9,800 Legionaires

For Company ‘the Blood-Worm’s Masters’

It is acknowledged that this list leans heavily upon the Forge World publication of Inferno (Book VII of the Horus Heresy series), some Jarls and their place within the company differ in the Black Library publications.
