So why were these guys called Catachan Devils?

>> No.24955698

Because they come from the planet Catachan. On Catachan, there exists a centipede-like creature called the Catachan Devil. They are gigantic, vicious apex predators, almost as big as a train. The Guard regiments raised on Catachan named themselves after the Catachan Devils to create the impression that they themselves are as dangerous as an actual Catachan Devil.

Now I really am trying to spite you, sagespammer

>> No.24955763

because kidz like edgy shit and GW caters to them

Just because you saged doesn't mean you're not shitposting.

>> No.24955803


To be fair, a platoon of these madmen could wreck shit just as well as the genuine article.

>> No.24955814

Oh, to be sure. As much as they were named after the Catachan Devil, they themselves are indeed devils from Catachan.

>Catachans 2001

You're trying too hard, anon.

>> No.24955999


Okey, because I thought that they should have been named Catachan Jungle Fighters and that Relic fucked up.

>> No.24956060


I didn't really stated an opinion so I don't know what you're agreeing on. Did relic in fact fuck it up?

>> No.24956070

One possibility for inspiration could be that U.S. Marines are called Devil Dogs.

>> No.24956087

Catachan Devils are the elite. I don't think they fucked it up too much.

>mfw somewhere in the 40K universe, there is a Magos Biologis who looks like the Ancient Aliens guy
Just found a new PC for my 40K RPGs

Whoops, meant NPC, but I'd play the shit out of that character too.

>> No.24956602

That's pretty damn heretical.

Fuck the Catachan, murderous scum they are!

>> No.24956645

Why don't they use them as mounts?

>> No.24956688


Too big, too agressive, too much of a hassle to kept well-fed between battles.

Although the idea of a squad of Catachans riding into battle Dune-like on top of a large Davil is pretty alluring.

>> No.24956762


I hope you used Bionic Eye on them before you sent them into melee down a Hive Tyrant or something like that.

It's insane how they're just as good, if not better, in melee than when using their shotguns

>> No.24957432

So who's actually ordered from this guy before? I assume it's safe.

>> No.24957560


>> No.24960124

I applauded at how much better they were than Stormtroopers.

>> No.24962605

>I'm not saying it's xenos...

Also, I thought only the Catachan Second (Straken's regimen)/veterans with Harker were called Devils?
And why aren't there Citadel IG shotgun blisters like those melta and plasma bitz, what the fuck
