D Company of the 99th Aleutian ‘Seahawks’ is, at present, commanded by Tempestor-Captain Fusō-912, a veteran of many airborne drops and Taurox amphibious assaults. A pragmatic and no-frills commander, the Captain is known to eschew prolonged sword duels that are the norm of noble-blooded Imperial Guard officers, instead preferring the surety of an unseen combat knife to the neck. (On a modelling note, his base hadn’t been washed yet)
Also pictured is the regimental command medic, Hyūga-917, known for her skill with a medkit and somewhat lacklustre bedside manner, and an unidentified vox-trooper, likely from the Captain’s own 1st Platoon - though the lack of command trim and veteran beret marks them out as a standard line soldier.

Hi Ty, I was wondering what everyones station is in Platoon. Is Jothas a Medic?
The 52nd Platoon is split into 3 squads: artillery, heavy armor, reconnaissance Two commanding officers: Garsend (1st Lieutenant) and Linette (Platoon Sergeant) And two medics: Constance and Maude (not pictured)
We don’t have everyone designed yet (and it’s gonna be a big group!) but here are the members pictured so far and what squad they belong to

This is my platoon’s area in the company bay. Whenever there’s nothing else to do, we do “hip pocket training”, which is basically just choosing a topic out of a manual (the kind you’d keep in your cargo pocket, hence the name) and just going over and practicing that.

Maybe I spoke too soon. It seems as though I do have some down time here at NTC. And I even have decent cell phone coverage! We arrived to Fort Irwin yesterday morning and we’ve already settled in with our cots, bags, etc. As you can see in the above pic, the soldiers in my platoon are getting some much-needed shut-eye after two days of hectic travel and in-processing.
But alas, I don’t think I’ll have time to post photos in addition to quotes for my whole duration here. But I will post some pics as often as occasion will permit. The coming days will be brutal and my leadership skills will be put to the test.

I just got off work. I was in the office all day today and for five hours after close of business to help my successor, 1st platoon’s new leader, get all the paperwork in order to ensure he’ll have all the right property when he goes down range. Everything else gets signed over to rear detachment.
Those are the two line platoons in this morning’s formation. It’s my last week with the company, before I get transferred to headquarters. I’ll miss the fun of being in a line platoon, but I’m ready for what’s next.
