Corvus Cabal

From Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Corvus Cabal are assassins, thieves, cut-throats and shadow stalkers whose home is on top of the mesas of the Carrion Reach in the Realm of Ulgu.[1]

Beliefs

They worship an aspect of Chaos known as the Great Gatherer who they depict as a vast prey-bird, its feathers black and perched atop a mound of stolen treasure. Archaon is seen as an avatar of the Gatherer and he will be sated with his endless wars. To gain his favour, their best killers are sent into the Bloodwind Spoil raising shrines made of their victims with offerings of looted wargear. [1a]

If on a hunt, a warrior of the Cabal must return with a suitable offering to the god or be thrown from heights of the Reach. [1a]

Communication

They have their own language of sharp cries and complex hand gestures. [1c]

History

They hire themselves out to Chaos Lords, with their only reward being that which they can claim from the bodies of the slain. [1c]

Locations

Notable

Weapons

The cabal favour bladed war-picks - simple and effective being able to slit throats and pierce armour as well as to slip around shields in battle. These are often festonned in trophies.[1b]

Units

Cabalist

Killers who slice their enemies to pieces with war-picks, spears and knives prior to stripping the bodies for loot. Some have bonded with carrion birds who act as scouts and/or addiitonal weapons. [2]

Shadow Piercer

The leaders of those groups sent into the Mortal Realms, seeking worthy tribute for their god.[2]

Shrike Talon

Equiped with a bizare looking but effective harness, they swoop down on their prey to tear into them with iron talons. [2]

Spire Stalker

Agile roof running assassins at home in the heights. [2]
