Cover Description

Assassins are the deadly agents of the High Lords of Terra and among the most feared of the Imperium's weapons. Each one is created for a single purpose: to kill their target, no matter the odds or obstacles in their way. Utterly dedicated to their cause, an Assassin will not quit once they have been ordered to kill, their mission ending only when either they or their target is slain. Each Assassin is also created for a particular means of killing - such is the variety and powers of the Imperium's foes. Vindicare Assassins are snipers without peer, while Eversor Assassins are furious close combat horrors. Callidus Assassins are shape-shifting masters of subterfuge, and Culexus Assassins are the antithesis of all psykers. All, however, remain masters of death, and few that die by their hand ever see them coming.[1]
