PostSubject: Eldar Cult of Slaanesh, Kaelis Ra "Destroyers of Light"   Tue Nov 16, 2010 12:27 am

My squad will be a "counts as" squad using the new rules of the chaos cultists with Eldar/Demons/Dark Eldar/Chaos Models to create a very diffrent look and feel for the squad. This does not mean they will play the game any differently I will just be using unique models and calling them diffrent things than the rulebook states. It is not intended to be a new squad type or anything like that. I believe that a unique story for a unique squad is what Death Squads is all about, so enjoy the story and enjoy the terror of my Chaos Cultists Eldar squad.

History:
During the Fall of the Eldar those close to the Eldar homeworlds where killed instantly having this souls pulled from their bodies. Those on the outskirts of the Eye of Terror still had a choice to make to embrace She who Thirsts or to turn turn their back on the Dark Gods and find a new life. Of those that embraced the darkness most still died anyway but some where given dark gifts and some where given great power, and some became demons. She who Thirsts embraced the lust in their hearts and now they serve her will.

After the Fall of the Eldar and the establishment of the warrior shrines Pheonix Lord Arhra founder of the Striking Scorpion Shrine fell and took with him the students directly under his tutilage. Many of the students became dark eldar as well as the Pheonix Lord himself. He became the founder of the Incubi and was the first to call himself one. It's not known when but some of the students thirsted for more power and blood. These students eventually either found a chaos artifact left dark eldar to travel to the warp. Upon arriving there they were greeted with open arms by the chaos gods who made them what they are today.

The Chaos Eldar Now:
In order to boost their numbers, being that the Dark Eldar are the origin for the Chaos Eldar they have taken to the habit of raiding the exodite worlds and stealing away Exodites to convert to chaos to swell their ranks. This campaign of raping and pillaging has lead to a swelliing of the ranks and occupation of their own homeworld inside the Eye of Terror. With the swelling of the ranks also came the cultists which have begun to be spread unto the warp to spread the word the the exodite worlds. The cultists serve a dual purpose to the eldar as their eyes and ears upon the Exodite worlds so they know when they are primed for the picking. Also the cultists are there to plant the seeds of doubt which could lead to the downfall of the Exodite Worlds and a fertile new world for the Dark Gods to pillage.

They have also began to learn from the Chaos Space Marines how to alter genetics to combine their blood with that of demons. But their delving into the dark gifts and ways of corruption don't stop there. They have started to master arts to grow and shape demon bone similar to the way the Eldar grow Wraithbone. With this they hope to build their own heavy weapons carriers that run on the captured waystones of the Craftworld Eldar by sucking power from their captured souls. These are not perfected yet and will not see the field of battle for some time.

Dark World Brylidasssian:
The first true Dark World (a corruption of the Craft World) was set to be Craft World Altansar which was caught in the Eye of Terror, but it was bravely rescued from the warp by it's Pheonix Lord Maugan Ra. So the cultist began construction of their own Dark World which they called Brylidassian (Opener of the Gates of Doom). Aboard the Dark World is A corruption of all of Eldar society. To mock the craftworld eldar and have created paths of their own. The Paths of Torture, Pain, Pestilence, Lust, Corruption are the paths the Chaos Eldar choose. They have even went so far as to create and name their shrines to the Dark Gods after the warrior aspect shrines.

Founding of the Chaos Aspect Shrines:
The first shrine founded on the Dark World is the Dark Scorpion Shrine called Kaelis Ra (Nightbringer or Destroyer of Light), shortly followed by the Dark Banshee Shrine of Grech Shelwe (Screaming Song). In the warp the now Chaos Eldar took up the vile weapons of chaos and left behind their old weapons. In time they began to forge their own new weapons after learning from Iron Warrior Chaos Marines they began creating weapons similar to that of the space marines. They made lighter easier to handle versions of bolters, chain axes/swords and adapted them to their fighting styles taught in the shrines.

Unlike the Eldar, the Chaos Eldar do not use a "War Mask", because they don't believe in Khaine or his ideas. To mock the eldar's use of a "War Mask" some of the Chaos Eldar practice the tradition of stretching the skin of Eldar warrior they have killed across the front of their helmets as their "Death Mask".

Squad:
Leader - Chaos Space Marine "Dark Exarch of Dark Scorpion Shrine Kaelis Ra" - Kelanthial
Aspiring Champion - Dark Scropion Aspect Warrior - Tanthia
Aspiring Champion - Dark Banshee Aspect Warrior -
Chosen - Dark Banshee Aspect Warrior Initiate - Kiltalon
Chosen - Dark Banshee Aspect Warrior Initiate - Ra Grech (Death Screams)
Cultist -
Cultist -
Annihilator -

(As usual this is still a work in progress keep checking back as I add more to the story.)

Glad you guys are enjoying. Everything up to the third paragraph is pretty much 100% from the fluff the it umm deviates a bit. But it could easily happen.

Indeed and the time is right to start on them as soon as 0.6.0 drops. Since the new codex is out and there are all these new models to exploit, i mean take advantage of, i mean build..

I like the idea of Chaos Dark Eldar, almost as much as I like the new Dark Eldar. I have to say GW have managed a really interesting re-incarnation of the DE, from a fairly unknown and monotonous force to something with some character and depth behind it. Not sure they've gotten it up to the level of the some of the other races in terms of fluff, but that give us room to create!

The stuff about Lord Arhra is generally accepted, but as far as I know, unconfirmed. He is the founder of the Striking Scorpions and his title of "Fallen Phoenix" does strengthen the idea that he became a Dark Eldar, but it isn't canon.

I like how the Chaos Dark Eldar have moved away from both groups and seem to mock both of them. This opens up some really interesting plot lines and does seem in tune with the Dark Eldar - in Black Library fiction there is at least one Dark Eldar pirate captain who worships to Slaanesh opening. This is a bit odd, since it is (S)he that is draining them of their souls, but that story was pre-current release.

I've had ideas of three different types of Dark Eldar Death Squads - Raiders (consisting of Dracon, Incubus Novice, Sybarite (2), Alien mercenary, Warrior, Warrior Aspirant, Reaper "Specialist" (2)), Wyches (consisting of Succubus, Hekatrix, Helliarch, Beastmaster (2),Wych, Hellion (3), Warp Beasts) and Haemonculi (consisting of Haemonculi, Renewed Warrior (2), Mandrake (2), Wracks, Grotesque (1) and something extra. The actually special rules etcetera I think needs a more astute hand than mine in the design, but the basic ideas I think work.

Regards,

Jammer

Dark Eldar are now very cool (and match with the fantasy dark elves well). I think the codex release does seem to bump dark eldar up the priority list a little bit. But, the inquisition relaunch is coming soon and Genestealer cults absolutely have to be high on the list too. So many cool squads and I'm still stuck on the IG!

Cheers Laney cheers

Genestealer Cults: Absolutely and its all yours - I think it should be near the top of the list. People will love it (I will definitely model one) and JordD04 would fall over backwards to play it! Very Happy

Laney Very Happy

Sneak peek of a order from ebay im waiting on mwhahahhahah



this figure will probably either be my exarch or my aspiring champion.
He will get some heavy alteration though.
I plan on him being equip with a Bolter pistol & "power claw" which will be partially sculpted because I want it to look like a scorpion claw (dark scorpion aspect as per my fluff).
I may change it to a chain sword though depending on how close combat I want to go.
I came really close to ordering a seeker of Slaneesh with the saddle and some legs for it but I know they are really long so it would be hard to keep confined in the 25mm base.
Maybe a show piece or maybe .... next years model for the prisoner exchange!!!!
