A fascinating look at the history of Chaos in Warhammer 40,000, the 136-page hardback Index Chaotica: Apocrypha brings together a collection of the most ancient and heretical texts the galaxy has ever laid terrified eyes upon. These articles, taken from early issues of White Dwarf and previous editions of Warhammer 40,000, include the original descriptions of the Dark Gods of Chaos, as well as the Daemons and Traitor Legions who serve them. You’ll discover the origins of this insidious threat to Mankind’s survival, and see how their miniatures, wargear and gameplay have evolved in the decades since their unveiling.
Amongst the articles included:
– early accounts of the Horus Heresy, the Traitor Legions and Warp Space;
– original depictions of the Daemons of each Chaos God from the Realm of Chaos books;
– classic fiction establishing the Long War fought by the followers of Chaos;
– accounts of the Daemon Engines of the Dark Gods, from White Dwarf;
– the original descriptions of the Traitor Legions;
– concept sketches, early artwork and first mentions of infamous characters, such as Fabius Bile and the Traitor Knights of House Devine;
The Traitor Legions of the Chaos Space Marines have waged terrible wars of hate and vengeance upon the Imperium of Mankind for ten thousand years. From the Daemon worlds of the Eye of Terror, they plot the destruction of the empire they once helped to build. They have neither forgotten nor forgiven the loyalists, nor the False Emperor whom they serve. These warriors will not rest until the galaxy is burning, and the Emperor’s putrid carcass is cast down from the Golden Throne into the filth where it belongs.
Codex Supplement: Traitor Legions is a 136-page, full-colour softback supplement to Codex: Chaos Space Marines. It contains a wealth of additional content and rules that any Chaos Space Marines army can use, with a huge array of rules for all nine of the Traitor Legions.

You know what they say about yellow snow…
Supplied with a new Weather Table, featuring weather from the grim and frostbitten depths of the winter months – playing during a blizzard is certain to sort the Grotz from the Boyz!

He is known by many names – Clonelord, Manflayer, Primogenitor. He is the epitome of deceit and perversion, and feared by man and monster alike. Once the Chief Apothecary of the Emperor’s Children, the madman known as Fabius Bile possesses a knowledge of genetic manipulation second to none. Now a renegade among renegades, he is loathed by those he once called brother, and even the most degraded of Chaos Space Marines fear his name. Exiled for his dark experiments, Bile has retreated deep into the Eye of Terror, leaving a trail of twisted abominations in his wake. But when a former student brings word of the ultimate prize for the taking, Bile is unable to resist being drawn once more into the cauldron of war. For in seizing this prize, Fabius Bile might yet discover the one secret his has been unable to unlock… the secret which will prevent his inevitable doom.
READ IT BECAUSE
It’s the start of a brand new series of twisted tales from the mind of an author for whom depraved antiheroes are his bread and butter. And Fabius’ vile experiments and complete lack of morality make for a deeply entertaining – albeit monstrously disturbing – tale.

Ragnar Blackmane is a legend of the Space Wolves, the youngest warrior ever to rise to command a Great Company. As he battles the forces of Abaddon the Despoiler on the war-ravaged world of Cadia, Ragnar remembers the events that brought him to this place and time, and relates two great sagas from his past, each bringing him into conflict with brother Space Marines from other Chapters, the secretive Dark Angels and savage Flesh Tearers. As these tales influence the events of the present, Ragnar comes to realise that his past actions have consequences.
READ IT BECAUSE
We’ve seen Ragnar Blackmane as a young Blood Claw before, but this is the first time we get to see him in action in all his Wolf Lord-ly glory! It’s a fascinating look at the Space Wolves’ relations with other Chapters as well, with both their old rivals, the Dark Angels, and the equally savage and bad-tempered Flesh Tearers turning up.
