Which Traitor Legion Are You? Chapter Tactics #13


Today PeteyPab wrangled up some Chaos Space Marine players, boozed them up, and all went over the new 40k Traitor Legions book.

Chapter Tactics is a 40k podcast which focuses on playing 40k competitively at all levels of the game. Because sometimes, Orks CAN beat Eldar…with Tactics.


For last week’s episode click here!

If you liked what you heard here is the rest of my series. Enjoy!


No show notes today, but I do have a question. Which new Legion rules are your favorite?


What Chaos Space Marine Legion lists do you have for me?

Did you just win an ITC event? Is your list dominating everyone it crosses? Did you just recently do well with a unique list at a large event? I want to hear about it! Just send it to
Please do not send your army list in a format such as Army Builder, send them in an easy to read, typed format. Thanks!


  • Lion El’ Jonson

    …..I guess I’m gonna be that guy and say Death Guard.

    • benn grimm

      Keep on rotting in the free world…

  • euansmith

    Sons of Sloth. Chapter Colours: unpainted plastic. Chapter Mutation: still on the sprue.

    • Karru

      Exception on the colours, Non-primed and painted with 2 solid coats of unthinned paint for characters.

      • Lion El’ Jonson
        • Karru

          Do you think that if someone painted with unthinned paints three times in a row on the same model, Duncan would appear out of nowhere to kidnap them? To teach them the importance of thinning their paints?

          • Lion El’ Jonson

            He would appear before the heretic and give him a Bloodletter glaze….

          • Valeli

            As someone who knows very little about how the paints actually work… what’s the reason they’re sold thick as is, instead of thinned with like… ball bearings (or something) to mix it up as needed?

            I don’t mind thinning my paints at all now. But (for some reason that, at the moment, escapes me) it seemed much harder to take the time for as a tiny child.

            Would it just be an unnecessarily higher cost if they started including mixers or w/e in the pots, and so they didn’t? Or is there some non-commercial reason it’s important to get the paint the way it is?

          • Karru

            It could be that it’s just that much more expensive. Considering that instead of large cans of paint, they are sold in small tear drop bottles or small pots. It might be quite expensive to try to fit them with mixers.

          • Noah Jerge

            Painters often prefer different consistencies of paint. While it is often wise to thin acrylics, there are many miniature painters who are able to achieve amazing results with paint that is not thinned (some do not even use primer).

            *achieve amazing results with paint that is not thinned (some do not even use primer)*

            You’re asking for death now m8

        • euansmith

          Thanks. That really made me laugh out loud.

    • benn grimm

      Primarch; Bear Plastique…;)

  • benn grimm

    Death guard came out strongest, which is of course only right, but all four mono-god legions turned out pretty good, thankfully.

  • Odsox

    I have to admit I’ve only read the World Eaters rules because Khorne is obviously the only God that matters, but I’m quite pleased with them. I’m just glad we didn’t get saddled with a fancy book and nothing to show for it but Hatred (Space Marines) again.

    • Nyyppä

      WB got to give Hatred (Word Bearers) to UM. That’s what they got.

  • Dennis J. Pechavar

    As I own both Alpha Legion and Death Guard armies I am very happy with with we were given.

  • Zack Seiders

    Was going for a nurgle themed list with traitors hate… then traitor legions come with the same formations as well as rules for that specific legion. Once again nurgle is the best out of the lot.

  • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

    Just putting the finishing touches on my self-gifted Achilles Alpha (complete with tentacles) that’ll be the core of my Iron Warriors Purge list. Still on the fence about my compulsory Elites as far as what would be TAC. A third Helbrute could be arranged, maybe.
