Planetary defence force

Much to the dismay of the Adeptus Administratum, the status of House Reinhardt as conservator of Dara has given the guild authority to raise its own armies to defend its world. While this is not a problem in itself, the worry among Imperial tacticians is that with access to Imperial military grade weaponry, House Reinhardt will be able to transport armies offworld through their trade fleet and use their superior military technology to their advantage away from the eyes of the Imperium. The Adeptus Arbites has watched House Reinhardt diligently, however,  and has had no reason to suspect foul play thus far.

Beyond the mercenary armies of House Reinhardt, Dara is defended by a militia raised from ogryn tribes, numbering in hundreds of thousands. The House Lord has only called the ogryn militia to battle on a few occasions over the thousands of year that House Reinhardt has ruled Dara, but their constant struggle for survival on their planet’s harsh surface have made the ogryns constantly prepared for conflict and war, ready to bring their unique technologies to bear against those who would invade their homeworld.
