Warhammer 40k Imperial Guard Triage Tag v1.5 by Light-Tricks Warhammer 40k Imperial Guard Triage Tag v1.5 by Light-Tricks
This is a slightly tweaked version of the original, which was a little sharp, still need to tweak the contents as per the original description below

For more of my nonsense, check out my blog: [link]

*********************

The latest piece in my series of 40k medical fluff documents, this is a rough draft of the triage tag (front on left, back on right). A must for all Imperial medical personnel, from medics and nursing staff to the Chirurgeon-General.

These tags are attached to the casualty by the likes of a field medic (whatever name you prefer) so they go to the right places and get the right aid as they're passed along the different personnel in the chain of evacuation.

If feedback is generally positive, I'll modify a version to actually resemble a tag, and eventually make a physical tag when I have time.

I am considering a slight rejig of the system to make it more "grimdark" (yet still workable) in making reverse triage standard, this is often used by real-world militaries in wartime to keep the maximum number of soldiers on the field, so they treat the minor ones first to get them "fighting fit" and then save the severe ones if they can. I imagine in 40k there would be less effort to save the severe ones.

I just wonder how is that this has any porpouse if most of the time, you are either declared to be corrupted by chaos, or simply KIA? If that doesn't happen, pretty much you are candidate for the Chapter in your sector.

Well it's not always that way and not even most of the time, I find what 40k has become is a 2D shadow of its former self, so I'm just trying to add a little more flavour and a bit more true grimdark. What do you mean a candidate for the Chapter in your sector?

A little mystake of myself, I forgot Chapters only accept recruits from their homeworlds, not from the Imperial Guard. It's a shame they stagnated into that stage of the lore where proficient Imperial Guard elements can't be included into Chapters, and that both the Sororitas and Astartes must recruit only from especific recruit pools.

If I could take my sweet time designing a mechanic for home matches, I make one where Imperial Guard units could be upgraded into Astartes and other heavier units.

Brilliant idea, will try and incorporate that in v2. I'm making a physical tag soon so I'll see if I can incorporate the changes for that one. Going to give the categorisation chart a re-jig too

Incidentally, First World War hospitals and medical care in general (certainly on the western front) was rather good indeed

Haha, I imagine they'd get through quite a few. If they bother filling them in at all, I always imagined that boxes of these would be welcomed by the more uncivilised units as handy toilet paper...

Hmm. Wonder if any of them would be tagged "Servitor candidate". Superb work by the way.

That is a great idea, I imagine that might be done further down the chain but I may incorporate that in the next draft :)

Not to be picky, put if you remove the strips to show the state wouldn't it be correct the other way around? Because if they were say Cat III, it says remove it.

No, if they're just Cat III you don't do anything, Cat II you remove the Cat III strip and get rid of it - the lowest strip showing is the category. Just like old triage tags

You're usually expecting the condition to worsen rather than improve while the tag itself is relevant, so if they drop from a Cat II to I while they're in the evacuation chain, you chuck away the Cat II strip. If a Doctor-like figure gives them some proper medical attention to where their state stabilises, they'll probably just get a new tag filled out if they need to go on elsewhere - or if in a hospital, the hospital paperwork supercedes it.
