Yes they have other rituals that may seem pointless but they seem relevent like the oath of moment or blessing their armor and holy bolter before going into battle.
There is a practical side to SM's eating folks too, they can gather information about their victims through one of the implants they have.

Purging of Kallidus is set before Angels of Darkness, IIRC. AoD is set in the aftermath of the Piscina campaign.
Well I finished the novel, in the chapter when Astelan is mentioned, is sounds like it was the latest catch of Fallen, being pretty recent and Boreas the Chaplain survives at the end but only barely!

One of the most retarded peices of fluff they have ever included. It is like they were high off their fucking minds when they made some of this shit up.

(sitting around a table smoking pot)

"Oh, oh, I have an idea..... we should make them eat peoples brains like zombies, that would be neat."

"Oooo, and if they did they learn what the dudes brained knew."

(chorus of pot fueled stupid laughter)

Because 2 ton zombie super soldiers were a good fucking idea.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

Sergeant Learchus eats a tau brain so he learns how to fly a tau skimmer and also learns the codes to access their base I think.
