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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why don't they use them as mounts?

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

>>24956632

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

Also, I thought only the Catachan Second (Straken's regimen)/veterans with Harker were called Devils?
