The Cult of Ruin – Part 4

Last year Mark of HeresyOfUS sent out a number of these cool looking skull stacks to hobby blogs for review. Naturally I wanted to do something suitably exciting with it, and as a piece it lends itself naturally to being used as an objective marker. However despite being a strong believer in the importance of thematic objective markers the fact that I almost never actually play games meant I never quite got around to it. Enter the one game I do play from time to time; Necromunda. In the Underhive the Chaos Cults construct dark shrines at which to conduct their maddening rituals, and which can drive the unwary quite insane if they stumble upon them.

Naturally the Necromundan authorities regard this as both disturbingly heretical behaviour and a waste of perfectly good skulls which could otherwise be ground up to make corpse-starch, but hopefully you’ll be a little more forgiving.

Anyone interested in Mark’s wonderfully strange take on the grim darkness should take a look at his online store. He’s also recently created a game, in collaboration with Alex of Leadballoony, and right now they’re running a competition with a giant bio-mechanical skullspider as the prize. The game is free and, if you win the competition, so is the spider – and what more does anyone need to tempt them!
