Here is a list of Chapter Traits that has been doing the rounds on various forums the past day:

Night Lords: -1 ld for each NL unit within 6 of an enemy. This stacks to a min of ld 1 for the enemy.

Word Bearers: Re-roll failed moral dice.

Black Legion: +1 ld and can always advance and shoot – or gain bonuses or no modifiers to advancing and shooting.

Alpha Legion – Scout ability – like deepstrike, but 12 inches away from enemy units.


World Eaters – Units in close combat are immune to morale.

All CSMs: All CSM units get the same “Objective Secured” ability Loyalist Space Marines have.
