Guncutters are custom-designed heavily armed shuttles and landers, often favoured by Rogue Traders, explorers, and less savoury elements. They are also serious firepower mounts, designed for space, though many can also make shuttle runs planetside as well. They are clearly combat-ready and usually covered with heavy weaponry. As such, they immediately project an intimidating appearance, and are often useful for dangerous negotiations and smuggling operations. Most can only carry a small crew and a limited number of passengers or hive value cargo, sacrificing capacity for speed, armament and...
These are a unique class of aircraft, using regular engines and large articulated wings to mimic avian flight. Often graceful and manoeuvrable beyond normal craft, they require more specialised training as they are prone to mishap in the hands of an inexperienced Pilot. Piloting such a vehicle is a sure sign of expert skills and an appreciation for style above the more brutish fashions displayed among other Imperial vehicles.
The Sparrowhawk is an ancient STC discovered by a rogue trader, and his seneschal on Tarvos VI in the Askellon Sector in the early days of M35. As the captain with such close friends with his seneschal he combined both their last names to give the pattern it’s name. The vessel itself is a huge ship not unlike the Guncutter, but on a much larger scale and with the capacity to permanently house its crew as well as fulfil many roles that would otherwise require a base of operations.
A long, long time ago I created 10 black market dealers for the first edition of Dark Heresy. Back then the Inquisitors Handbook (IH) was the hot stuff, Hive Sibillus was the seat of government, items had prices in Thronegelt, my English was truly horrible (or I was just sloppy) and the DH Gamemaster forum of FantasyFlightGames was buzzing. I am an oldtimer, I have found memories. Anyway, I stumbled upon the old topic with my ten black market dealers, corrected the grammar, got myself some artwork and decided to release them as a PDF. Oh! And you will find a lot of references in here to...
Though designs vary from planet to planet and from forge to forge, the Delileus is well-respected in the Scarus Sector as the quietest of the quiet. Firing heavy subsonic projectiles out of a thick baffled barrel, the noise of a Delileus is so reduced that few even recognize its firing as a gunshot. Many of these weapons are made for military usage as sentry-killers or defensive arms for covert operators, but still more find their way into the hands of assassins, big-game hunters, and all manner of unsavory characters.
This weapon is designed to fire a specially loaded subsonic round which creates no sonic boom upon exiting the weapon's action. Further, its barrel is encased in mechanical baffles or other sound-dampening systems that make it almost inaudible when firing, as well as reducing its recoil. Such weapons are often used for hunting or target shooting in civilian circles, but they also find their niche as military arms for soldiers specializing in covert operations. Weapons with this quality gain all the advantages of weapons equipped with Silencers; however, they are incapable of hitting targets...
Storm Troopers are the special operatives of the Imperial Guard, scattered throughout Guard regiments in squads or companies to augment and support standard Guard formations. They are trained and equipped for almost any mission, sabotage, airdrops, spearhead assaults, and operations behind enemy lines. It is this versatility and competence that makes Storm Troopers so appealing to the Inquisition. The Holy Ordos does not make a point of maintaining standing armies. However, Inquisitors often find themselves needing professional soldiers in the course of their operations. When they do, they...
