Fluff Update: A slice from Haemonculus Covens Supplement

Post#1 » Apr 09 2015 12:48

These are updates from the Dark Eldar Supplement; Haemonculus Covens

991.M41: The Plundered Flesh of Pech

After capturing not only countless Tau upon Vigos but also the mercenaries with which they bolster their cadres, the Prophets of Flesh discover that the Kroot are able to learn and even evolve purely by selectively devouring the fallen. To appropriate such an ability would be seen as a coup even amongst the Haemonculi. Before long, the Prophets of Flesh have opened up a webway gate upon the Kroot home world: the humid jungle planet of Pech. The Tau, fiercely defensive of their empire’s mercenary allies, counter-invade in force by mobilising twelve Hunter Cadres to scour the jungle clean. The unfolding battle ends abruptly when the Prophets of Flesh withdraw, their Raiders straining to the point of collapse under the weight of the Kroot corpses they have stolen. Though the Tau propaganda machine celebrates a great victory, the Dark Eldar have what they came for. They leave a message behind, spelt out in the bloody corpses of their victims. It is loosely translated by the Water caste as the phrase ‘Welcome to the Feast’.

One thing I've noticed when reading these is that, when I compare these entry's in my Dark Eldar codex of them attacking the Imperium/Orks(not sure how it looks in other codex's). The Tau seem to be much better at fighting back than the Imperium and Orks, they even win a few in other codex's.

We have a timeline thread here where these kinds of additions are helpful.

That reminds me, there's a couple of things in Khorne Daemonkin Codex I need to post up later today.

I appreciate the update, Calmsword, but Ionus is right on the money -- these are a lot of new threads. :sad:
