Hm. On one hand, it's a cool idea... on the other hand, it's another cult. There seem to be so many cults in this game...
Not that many different ones really. Chaos cults are the main ones, with stealer cults a distant second.
That being said, there are quite a LOT of Chaos cults :)
Cool! More models to lose money on
I for one would definitely like some Mk 4 armour to add into my Night Lords, without having to pay ForgeWorld prices :)
BTW. You guys mentioned that the new Dark Eldar models aren't too different from the older ones. Well, they certainly aren't, as - after looking at these models - I can't really say which are those that were added recently. So, which ones were these?
The model range was revamped a bit with the warriors and wyches being redone. The same style, more or less, but better and more detailed models. I think the Haemonculus cults got a lot of new toys, and the mandrakes too.
And if you don't mind, two general questions...
One: as I'm reading through WH40K, I notice that many of the threats to the Imperium are kind of... covert. Chaos is considered a secret to the general population. Dark Eldar are just a rumour. Necrons are out there, but Imperium doesn't seem to really have noticed them. So... which of the various threats an average Imperium citizen would know? Orcs, Tyranids?
An average Imperial citizen, probably none. Unless they lived in a region where there were threats, it's in the Imperiums interest to keep them ignorant of what is out there.
They'd be taught to hate the heretic, the mutant, the alien, the witch, but those as a matter of course.
Two: I'm kind of trying to come up with a Dark Heresy scenario... But, as I haven't read most of the book yet, I'm kind wondering: how does an Iquisition investigation actually begin? What could tip an Inquisitor off that something merits investigation?
An attack of some kind.
Missing people, or bodies turning up.
Strange objects being found by the likes of the Arbites.
A warning from an agent (A Rogue Trader, for example).
The nature of what the investigation would lead to would help in suggesting triggers.
