Hunters is a short story by Braden Campbell. It was originally published (under the title Hunted) in Hammer and Bolter 13, and re-published in the omnibus Honour Imperialis (Omnibus), and online in August 2015.
The Tau Empire has begun its annexation of Cytheria, an Imperial world garrisoned by Catachan Jungle Fighters. Within a few days, the aliens have eliminated most of the Imperial opposition, forcing the remaining Catachans to assume the role of guerrilla fighters, a role in which they excel. Only one option remains to the Catachans – a suicide mission into the heart of the Tau base camp to take down the Ethereal in charge of the invading force.
