Inquisitor Thaddeus Grimm

The Golden Throne will fail.

The Astronomicon will grow dim and mankind will slide into a dark age of destruction and extinction across the galaxy.

This is mankind's destiny if nothing can be done to shine a new light throughout the Imperium.

An ancient Empire once spanned the galaxy; a race who stepped from star to star, system to system as one might step from one room to another. Thaddeus Grim has seen this technology in action; has crossed light-years in the blink of an eye. If mankind is to survive the ravages of the enemies within and without, then it is to the the past he must look. To this end he cruises the stars looking for the technologies to allow mankind to hold his grip upon the Imperium and keep those Xenos who would reduce humanity to slavery, destruction or far worse, at bay

The emergent Imago Slann and one of his spawning brood have arisen from sunken polls deep below the surface of an otherwise extinct and buried civilisation. Whilst the rest of the brood set about gathering what they can amongst the ruins, Annanaki has set out into the Galaxy to establish the order of things and gather what he can for his race to once again step out into the stars. For now, it serves him well to associate with Thaddeus who himself is curious about the amphibious psyker and what his race can offer the Imperium

The People of the Delta

I have pretty much wrapped up the Morrighatti for the time being. I have a fair sized group and little inspiration for something new for the time being, I may well come back to do a miniature here and there at some stage. 

So, onwards!

I have had a couple of ideas for new conversions and groups of themed peoples, and nicely they kind of all fit together , or at least will sit nicely together under the banner of the 'People of the Delta'.

Within the realm of Ghur, along the Shattered Coast, lies the Delta. A vast region where three mighty rivers converge and spread out into a rich, verdant delta before draining into the wild oceans. This vast water-world would take days to cross on foot and is tangled with swamp, woodland, crawling waterways and streams. It teems with life.

The Teuthiliad live inland from the coast itself; in settlements lifted into the trees and away from the largest of the delta's waterways where the danger is greatest. These small settlements make a living f…

The Sin Eater

She carried her bloated form, leaning heavily on her staff. It had been almost a full day since she had left the previous settlement. A full day alone in the forest, winding along the tracks and pathways known to her people  and the other, less welcoming inhabitants of the forest. She skirted past the swamp, too heavy, too weak to defend herself should she encounter trouble.
The settlement of Tallebranch was due to be up ahead, it's semi-nomadic people following the traditional routes as the seasons passed; following their herds and the fruiting trees and bushes. It had been a full year since she had been to this place, a full year since the people had brought any sinners to the tent set aside for her.
Once ensconced in her tent, and once darkness had fallen, they would tread quietly to her place at the edge of the settlement, bringing their shame. Mothers bringing children, husbands bringing wives or ageing relatives, all trying to hide the theft of their loved ones.
This was her …

IV. The Walker in the Woods

The Sin Eater plays a crucial role within Morrighati society; for a semi-nomadic people living in a world where the souls of the children of the Morrighat are being freed and bound to the living; the risk of soul fragments binding to those unintended for apotheosis is high. As such, the Morrighatti people occasional begin to display signs of corruption and transformation. This is considered a thing of shame, an affront to the Morrighatt herself. To take her gifts rather than be given it is a thing of sin.

And so there are the Sin Eaters; usually women, who tread the paths between settlements and camps and who visit the people and consume their shame. Literally taking the corruption into themselves and purging the sinful. On one hand they are feared and shunned, on another revered and respected. With time, the Sin Eater’s body becomes bloated and corrupted as they take into themselves the Sins of their people and when their body can take no more they transform completely. This can happe…
