Long time lurking, but first post:

In 'Enemies of the Imperium' it mentions a chaos warlord named 'Cryth the Hellbringer', who found out about a relic which is why alot of the warbands are there. My question is, what is the relic/ what do you represent it as?


'Cynic' Brooker of the Saurian Survivors.

Corvo, Chief Of Arms for the royal Emperors ship 'Glorious Might'.

And, GM of all the above.

In the same book, you have the "Kabal of the Obsidian Gauntlet" under the Dark Eldar section. This is described as "...a relic of arcane technology borne by their Archon, which has enabled many of these seemingly-suicidal raids to succeed, as he tears down ferrocrete bastions with its blackened grip."

 

So really, it is up to you. In the Hellbringer's case, what would be appropriate for the leader of a chaos warband? What sort of item would cause many of them to flock to one location? Obviously something of great importance, perhaps a weapon. Create some stats, or make it a rebranded power/force sword or something. 

 

As for the Obsidian Gauntlet, I used just gave the gauntlet itself the stats of a power fist with some narrative wishy-washy stuff as extra abilities. 

 

I've found the Enemies of the Imperium to not only be a good source of foes to fight, but an even better source of flavor, plot hooks, and locations to fight in. Much of it is only listed in name, which gives you the opportunity to fill in the details yourself.

Thank you. I'm thinking of a dark, alternate version of the Puritans wrath chainaxe from Shield of Humanity.
