Back to Spunkybass Place

Not much is known of this particular Thousand Sons detachment, or of its leader, the mysterious Sorcerer Lord Amun Seth. Indeed, to date, the Ordo Malleus has yet to obtain a vid-pic of the sorcerer.

Many theories exist as to the origins of Amun Seth himself, but none can be confirmed. There are those who theorize that Amun Seth was once a Thousand Sons Librarian, and thus spared the curse of Ahriman. Some believe that the sorcerer was once a Librarian of the Dark Angels Legion, and turned against the Emperor during the Great Heresy. However, the strangest and most likely theory is that Amun Seth was not even human to begin with, but instead a Farseer of the xenos Eldar. As legend goes, a Farseer from Ulthwe was ordered by the Seer Council to infiltrate Ahriman's force and gather intelligence on its progress in the webway. However, deception breeds deception, and the great traitor sorcerer had already known of the Eldar's devices, and played along to the xenos' plans, all the while hatching a cunning plot of his own. The unfortunate Farseer was eventually seduced by the powers of Tzeentch. In an elaborate treachery that took place on his 999th birthday, the Farseer betrayed 999 of Ulthwe's best warriors by leading them into an ambush. None survived. As reward, he was elevated to daemonhood and assumed the name Amun Seth.

It is not known whether this tale bears any truth. What is for sure is that the War Host has been plaguing the Imperium, as well as xenos forces, for the past few centuries. The prowess of this War Host must not be underestimated. During the 13th Black Crusade, this War Host destroyed all opposition against it.
