An arid, sparsely populated frontier world, Kessae Flats (more commonly known as Kessae) is a tithe world to the Imperium, and very loyal, if a bit unorthodox. A democratic government rules the planet, of which the people are very proud. The capital of the planet is called Sutler’s Canyon, which the 8th regiment calls their home. These brave men – and sometimes women – are all volunteers, hence their name, though they are, of course, subject to the death penalty if they fail to volunteer when requested by an army official.

Kessae Flats is, unfortunately, home to a particularly persistent Ork infestation, leading to constant attacks by Orks upon the hardy settlers of that world. More fortunately, the Orks of Kessae Flats are of a particularly primitive tribal variety, and have little to no knowledge of any weapons more advanced than axes and bows. It is in this environment, mostly lacking in motorised vehicles or complicated technology outside of the capital, that the famous skirmisher cavalry regiments are raised for the Imperial Guard – using their horsemanship and elan to overcome both the Orks of Kessae and the other enemies of the Emperor, wherever they might be found.
