Though our tanks and artillery are mighty, it is the vast ranks of Imperial Guardsmen that shall trample the enemy to dust -- let them come.
~ Ursarkar E. Creed, Lord Castellan of Cadia

The Astra Militarum, commonly known as the Imperial Guard, is the primary fighting force of the Imperium of Man Across a galaxy of a hundred billion stars, there must be billions of Guardsmen at least -- yet even the Departmento Munitorum on Terra, which oversees this immense force, has no real idea of how many troops there are at any one time. A safe estimate is to say that there are millions of regiments.
