A cannibal sickness lurks at the heart of Necromunda, like a festering wound that will never truly heal. In the dark corners of the underhive, the Corpse Grinder Cults gathers weapons and recruits, whispering prayers to the Lord of Skin and Sinew. Fed on a diet of forbidden flesh, they rise up, spreading their rebellion into open warfare. In their wake, the taint of Chaos follows and hives descend into madness.
Formed from the toiling workers within the ranks of the Corpse Guild, the Cultists were once honest men who have seen too much horror in the corpse recycling plants or else those who are hungry for the power that the cult can offer. At the heart of the cult is the Harvest Lord who binds his followers together in devotion to the Lord of Meat.
The Corpse Grinder Cults have shown that tools designed to cut up dead bodies are just as good at cutting up living ones too. They can swarm their enemy with hordes of eager Initiates, who have the Infiltrate skill. Skinners are the equivalent of Gangers – they are absolutely lethal in close combat and are even more dangerous when they are on the charge. The Cult can go in hard by tooling up the elite Cutters and Butchers to easily tear through those who have yet to see the light of the Chaos Gods with brutal weapons that can take out enemy fighters in a single attack. The whole gang want nothing more than to tear apart anyone who opposes their rebellion – blood will be spilt for the Lord of Skin and Sinew.
With a range of truly brutal close-combat weapons to choose from, the Corpse Grinder Cults do their best work up-close and personal. From the rotary flensing saw to the butcher’s chain cleaver, they have all the tools you need to give glory to the Lord of Skin and Sinew. Make sure that you make the most of cover on the way in though, as you’re not going to win in a straight-up firefight. The only members of the gang that can take shooting weapons are the Initiates, so make sure that you Infiltrate them into areas where they can keep enemy heads down while the rest of your Cult advance. Then the Initiates can join in the fun with their boning swords.
