Yes. The Inquisition are the secret police of the Imperium responsible for guarding the souls of humanity. They fight against all threats. There are 3 major orders within the Inquisition: Ordo Malleus, the daemon hunters who protect mankind from the daemonic dangers of Chaos Ordo Hereticus, the witch hunters who protect mankind from themselves (treason, ...

The things the Warp does come in roughly two types: Spew forth endless legions of Daemons to subjugate the Materium, kill every living creature and fashion their souls into underpants. Whatever it wants. The Warp works in non-euclidian time and space ways potent and bizarre enough to kill a Doctor Who writer at 100 paces. The Warp does not care, the Warp ...

Indeed! There exist many orders within the inquisition that handle various threats to the Imperium of man, and Inquisitors are not tied to any one specific order. Typically the Ordos Hereticus handles the rise of cults within the Imperium, while the Ordos Xenos handles the rising threat of the Xenos. However, it is not unheard of (rather common really) ...

Use a lot of computer speak in the insult. E.G: in Dan Abnetts book Titanicus, one of the characters uses the phrase "very error shunt abort" to mean pissed off. In many books, the Tech Priest tends to be an over exaggerated version of Spock and yet can still get angry about something. In my experience, only a few books have covered Tech Priests with any ...

Yes and No. As already mentioned, the Inquisition is based on the three major orders. Your Inquisitor belongs to one specific order and will send your warband to an incident it suspects to be caused by the threat his order is fighting. However, suspicions can be wrong. The guy suspected as a chaos cult leader may as well be an absolutely normal mafia don ...

The dark eldar are a race that consists of individuals and organizations just like any other race (probably except Necrons and the hive mind) in the galaxy. That means they will never willingly align with Chaos. However, Chaos does not ask nicely. The forces of Chaos will lure those that seek more power than their race's hierarchy would let them have. It ...

In my opinion - no. The Dark Eldar are the living embodiments of all that is wanton and cruel in the Eldar character. Highly intelligent and devious to the point of obsession, these piratical people revel in the physical and emotional pain of others, for feeding upon the psychic residue of suffering is the only way they can stave off the slow consumption ...

Dark Eldar are sneaky sadistic space pirates. If they don't want to be seen or heard, with technology or with human senses, they won't be detected. They can show themselves with one blip to terrify their prey before striking: it's sadistic, evil, sneaky and right up their alley. One thing you should keep in mind is how this is going to end up for the ...

Dark Eldar suffer from The Thirst, a need to drink the souls of other beings. This rejuvination also reverses aging, so as long as they keep devouring enough souls the Dark Eldar in question is functionally immortal. This means that if they don't have enough souls they'll eventually die of old age, but are more likely to do so before this happens in frantic ...

When one who stands the Long Watch falls in battle his gene-seed is taken (if possible) to be returned to their Chapter: Flesh Tearer gene-seed goes to the Flesh Tearers, Minotaurs gene-seed goes to the Minotaurs and so on. The equipment (black and silver armor, Bolter and more) returns to the Watch Fortress in question. Given that the Marine in question ...

There are three orders of the Inquisition, one of them being Ordo Xenos (alongside Malleus (Demons) and Hereticus (Heretics)). Ordo Xenos is specifically for weeding out the alien influence from mankind's galaxy.
