Tempted by boons and offers of power, many mortals have chosen of their own free will to serve alien beings from beyond Urcaen. Infernalist cultists are corrupted and manipulated into surrendering their former loyalties to become willing collaborators in the infernal invasion. Wielding rune-covered ritual blades that whisper to them and pulse with inner heat, the most prodigious killers are elevated to dark sentinels, bestowed with more formidable great swords and entrusted to take on special tasks.
Cultist Bands constitute the bulk of human forces dedicated to their Infernal Masters. A multifaceted unit, Cultist Bands can be used to both heal and fuel nearby Horrors and ensure they remain on this plane of reality. Additionally, Cultist Bands are deadly light skirmishing units that prefer to take advantage of their numbers with their Gang ability. Dark Sentinels are Weapon Attachments that bulk up the hitting power of their unit, providing offensive spells and more powerful melee weapons.
