The Avatar of the Bloody Handed God

As far as the Dark Eldar are concerned, the Eldar gods died in the Fall, and they despise them for it. That the gods had become so weak that they could be consumed by the ascendancy of the Eldar's collective depravity is a sign they did not deserve to exist in the first place. The exception is Khaine, who is still held in high regard in Commorragh. To the Dark Eldar, the act of murder is an art, or an intricate dance, something to be enjoyed and made beautiful. It is this that has given rise to the murder-cults within the ranks of the Kabalite warriors. While all Dark Eldar are proficient killers, the murder-cults are killers without peer, each giving themselves over to a particular clandestine art of killing in vainglorious homage to the bloody handed god. Joining such loose organizations is often another excuse for the Dark Eldar to enjoy wanton blood spilling, there is a closely guarded secret held by senior sybarites – the awakening of a murderous avatar of Kaela Mensha Khaine. Throughout Commorragh’s history it has come in possession of several Avatars of Khaine from derelict craftworlds. While no sane Dark Eldar would ever sacrifice himself to awaken the avatar, the murder-cults are all too willing to sanctify the ritual chamber with the blood of the weak. Lacking martial focus and discipline, most sacrifices serve no practical function, but on the eve of battle a captured and tortured Aspect Warrior of the craftworlds will be brought forth to the darkened chambers. In a perverse mockery of the craftworld rituals, the murder-cults will sacrifice the warrior whose tortured essence awakens a dark and sinister murderer. The Avatar of Khaine 160 points HQ: An Avatar of Khaine is an HQ selection for a Dark Eldar army. WS 10 BS 5 S 6 T 6 W 4 I 6 A 4 LD 10 Sv 3+ Bloodlust: When led by their Avatar, the Dark Eldar are filled with thoughts of bloodshed, and its presence inspires them to great acts of violence and depravity. Any Dark Eldar unit with a model within 12” of the Avatar becomes Fearless. Hatred: The Aspect Warrior sacrificed to awaken the Avatar was driven insane from torture and his broken psyche has awakened the worst aspect of Kaela Mensha Khaine. Any Dark Eldar unit with a model within 12” of the Avatar gains the Furious Charge and Rage universal special rules.
