Games Workshop teases the return of the Redemptionist Cult to Necromunda!
Old school Necromunda fans get ready for a blast from the past. Specifically a prometheum fueled blast from a flame weapon because the Cult of the Redemption is revving up for a return. In the latest Underhive Informant from GW, they are dropping some Rumor Engine like previews. Check this out.
“We don’t have much to go on, just a few out of focus pict captures and some weapons recovered from crime scenes. Take a look at these pictures.”
And that’s not the only tease. Check out these weapons that were also shown off. Take note of the types of weapons in particular.
So a couple of things about this artwork – note the symbol next to the weapon names – that’s a pretty big tell. Also, what other faction is known for slapping flamers on whatever they can?
Our final clue is this note from the text from the Underhive Informant:
“Something big is on the way. We’re getting troubling reports from across the planet from Trazior to the Quinspirus Cluster. Here in Hive Primus, everyone is on edge, from The Fist to Port Mad Dog. We’re seeing an increase in murders and arson, and it all seems pretty well-organised, so we’re going to crack down on it before it breaks out into something more serious, like those Corpse Grinder Cults.”
The big giveaways here are “an increase in murders and arson” and also a nod to the Corpse Grinder Cults. Murder, arson, and cults? C’mon…
Now, this could also be a part of the Cawdor update that is probably coming. Afterall, the last roadmap we got for Necromunda is completed:
Of the two main houses that aren’t on this map, it’s Cawdor and Delaque. And the Cult of the Redemption is a part of House Cawdor. This could all be an even bigger tease for that.
The main reason I’m sure that this isn’t a straight-up Cawdor update is that the weapon do look like they are better made than the scrap weapons that Cawdor uses. In any case, we’re looking forward to more cool models coming to Necromunda!
What do you think? Are we going to see a return of the Redemptionist Cult or is this “just” a Cawdor update?
