Are there any Slaaneshi Dark Eldar,  like maybe do the Pleasure Cults follow Him?

I'm not sure but It might be remotely plausible. But asking both to try to seek new creative ideas.

Also because there was a comment about Halls Of Blood in Dawn Of War in reguards to Slaanesh in the Instruction Book.

In some of the older lore, I believe it was plainly stated that there were Chaos Eldar factions. While that's been almost entirely dropped since then, we are given avenues of opportunity still.

 

In the 8th edition core rulebook, there is a vague chart of all things Aeldari, with each intersection labeled to indicate a subfaction. The legend names all of the subfactions but for one, which is ++REDACTED++.

 

While the image for that subfaction is rather . . . busy, and I couldn't tell you what it was depicting like at all, to the side of each subfaction's image are examples of sigils.

 

And the redacted subfaction's symbol is that of Slaanesh.

I don't have the reference at hand anymore, but I think it's the second or third page of the Eldar section. When I get back home I'll check it.

Found it. Not sure what to do with that, but that might make for some cool RP and theme ideas.

Think I'm right in remembering that the Chaos Eldar stuff revolved around the Crone Worlds, which were planets at the very heart of the great Eldar empire and were swallowed up when Slaanesh was born and the EoT created. Most of the Eldar died instantly, their psyches consumed, but it was suggested that some survived. As Conn says it's old fluff, but not absolutely contradicted by the newer stuff either...

It'd be kind of difficult to worship something that wanted nothing more than to eat your soul though. I mean....you wouldn't be worshipping for long, thats for sure.

And they'd certainly have to live away from all other Eldar, because even Cormorragh won't stand for that kind of insanity. They are just as much at threat from Slaanesh as any other Eldar.

 

Would be a tricky one to write lore for i think. Not impossible, but it'd be very easy for it to make no sense if you aren't careful.

It would fit in with their philosophy. They would offer another Eldar soul in place of their own. Then any additional souls would be offered as tribute much like the Chaos Space Marines Do. Even the Archons make their weapons using the soul of a CraftWorld Eldar and a Soul Gem.
