History[edit]

The Sixth were one of three additional units formed by Duke Anton relatively late in the conflict, formed from survivors of other units and new recruits. Originally gathered on New Delos in September 3014, they were rotated to Semenyih in November. [1] The Sixth saw their first real action in January 3015 on Tiber, when they and the 8th Ducal Guard supported an assault by Wolf's Dragoons' Beta Regiment, along with Zeta Battalion, Black Widow Company and the Fire Support Group, on the Earthwerks Incorporated factory there. The rebels secured the facility, but were soon counter-attacked by the Loyalists' 1st Regulan Hussars and the 1st, 5th, 6th and 8th Orloff Grenadiers. Although the Dragoons successfully defended the factory for a time, the green Ducal Guard troops steadily lost ground against the First and Sixth Orloff. No reinforcements were available, and by the time the rebels and Dragoons ultimately withdrew in February, the Sixth and Eighth Ducal were effectively destroyed. [2] [3]
