Codex: Chaos Space Marines is your complete guide to the Heretic

Astartes – a brotherhood of superhuman traitors hell-bent on destroying

the Imperium they once helped build.

In this codex, you'll discover how the Chaos Space Marines came to be,

their dark plans for the Imperium, and how they fight. Lore and

timelines explore the long, shadowed history of these malefic warriors,

from the dark days of the Horus Heresy to their renewed assault on

realspace following the opening of the Cicatrix Maledictum. Collected

art and illustrations bring the dark world of the Chaos Space Marines to

life, while rules allow you to field an army from the Black Legion,

Alpha Legion, World Eaters, Night Lords, Word Bearers, Emperor's

Children, Iron Warriors, as well as renegade warbands, including ones of

your own devising.

You'll be able to choose from a dark arsenal, containing everything from

frothing, zealous Cultists to daemonforged war engines like the

Defiler. Faction rules let you tailor your strategy and tactics to the

legendary Traitor Legions, like the bloodthirsty World Eaters or

relentless Iron Warriors, while a huge set of Stratagems offer you all

manner of dirty tricks to unleash on your foes.

Meanwhile, the book is a fantastic resource for collectors, containing

tips for building your army, examples of Chaos Space Marines forces, and

loads of invaluable reference material and alternative colour schemes

for painters.
