Hey yo,

before I go and turn my Kabal of the Dark Sun into the Wych Cult of Strife, what do all the markings mean on the transfer sheet?



I'm keen on using the red circle filled with a black marking that's on the right of the sheet, anyone know what it's for?

Most of them are symbols for Kabals, Cults and Covens. Off the top of my head, the blue snake is the Poisoned Tongue, the ones below are for the Black Heart, the skull with two red lines and the sickle above it is for the Flayed Skull and the septogram is for The Hex.

They are Kabal and Cult markings.

For the Kabals on the left:

Blue Snake is Kabal of the Poisoned Tongue.
Below that is the Black Heart.
Not sure on the next two.
Below that, the crossed bones thing is Kabal of the Last Hatred.
The eye under that is the Kabal of the Baleful Gaze.
The skull in star is the Kabal of the Dying Sun.
And finally the Lord of the Iron Thorn.

To the right of Baleful Gaze, you have the Kabal of the Broken Sigil too.

The Coven markings are in the middle, and are the circular ones:
The hand is the Prophets Of Flesh.
Under that, the swirl is The Everspiral.
Below that to the right, The Dark Creed.
The seven pointed star is The Hex.
The spindly, spidery one near that is The Altered.

On the right od the sheet are the Cults, which I don't know.

So, this one is a cult of some sort?

Ah-ha! 5th edition Codex!

Eye with a mark in a blue oval is the Kabal of the Slashed Eye!
The one under that on the bone background is the Obsidian Rose!

The specific one you're asking about......I actually came to something interesting.
Its Black Heart. Maybe.
The 5th edition Codex shows a Raider of the Black Heart, using THAT rune instead of the usual Kabal emblem.
Theres a later Ravager of the Black Heart with a different rune.

So that one ISN'T a Wych Cult. Its something else, used on vehicles......

Cool, thanks for hunting.

I think I might adopt it.

No prob.

From the looks of it, all of the ones on the right in red boxes are generic markings intended for vehicles, but with so far no direct meaning.
