For over ten millennia, the Chaos Space Marines have relentlessly waged war against the galaxy that rejected them. As genetically enhanced warriors in ornate armor, these veterans bear the scars and trophies of countless battles and bear the dark blessings of entities from the warp. The Heretic Astartes, encompassing both the infamous Traitor Legions and Renegade Chapters, are driven by a mix of vengeance, glory, and the insanity of warfare.
Under the command of formidable Chaos champions – from towering Daemon Princes to sinister Sorcerers – the seasoned Legionaries fight with ferocious battle tanks and are bolstered by hordes of cultists and mutants. Every entity, be it mortal, machine, or Marine, is a potential vessel for daemon possession, transforming into grotesque Daemon Engines or the terrifyingly powerful Possessed. These forces form a grave threat to the Imperium of Mankind, their enduring crusade fueled by deep-seated hatred.
The eagerly awaited 10th Edition Codex for Chaos Space Marines, expected in spring 2024, is set to be a pivotal resource for both collectors and players. Anticipated to offer detailed rules for assembling and commanding the diverse legions of these corrupt Astartes, the Codex is likely to be a treasure trove of strategic guidance and lore.
Drawing on the rich narrative legacy of previous editions, it’s poised to explore the sinister history of the Chaos Space Marines, from the seeds of their initial betrayal to the epic scale of Abaddon the Despoiler’s Black Crusades. Additionally, the Codex is expected to delve into the perilous realms of daemon worlds and provide in-depth profiles of the most infamous Traitor Legions and Renegade Chapters, making it an indispensable guide for understanding and deploying the forces of Chaos in Warhammer 40,000.
