4 Minute Read
Nov 14 2019

It’s time to unleash some heresy. The OG Legions are making a comeback with new Warlord Traits, Stratagems, and Artefacts!

We’re finally getting a glimpse at the upcoming rules for the Chaos Space Marine Legions that will be in Faith & Fury – and it sure sounds like they are bringing the FURY to the equation. Time to make some dark pacts and bring in the true veterans of the long war. Check these rules out.

More Daemon Weapons

First up are a selection of Daemon weapons that can be given to your characters instead of any other Artefact of Chaos. Not only are there new weapons dedicated to each of the four Chaos Gods, but there’s also an option for those Warlords that follow Chaos Undivided.

We already got a look at the Khorne Weapon but for completeness sake, we’re including that here as well as the new Nurgle Power Fist – G’holl’ax, Fist of Decay:

There are at least 3 more on the way…I can’t wait to see what they will all do! Now, on to the Legion rules!

Chaos Space Marines – We Are Legion

Word Bearers


Warlord Trait – Daemon Whispers

An extra D3 CP at the start of the game plus your Warlord gets 1 re-roll to spend as well. That’s a start…and we’re getting a tease of one of their stratagems as well

Stratagem – Apostle of the Dark Council

Once per battle, you can spend a CP to chant an additional prayer. That could come in pretty hand to allow you to double-up on something spicy.


Night Lords

Stratagem – We Have Come For You

The Night Lords will be able to pin their prey in place with this stratagem. If they are locked in Close Combat with your Night Lords, they don’t get to shoot you to pieces. I like this one a LOT!

Relic – Vox Daemonicus

This one is kind of amazing. It shuts down Auras and prevents reinforcements within 12″ of the bearer of this relic.

Alpha Legion


Stratagem – Sabotaged Armoury

Do you like explosions? Do you want your enemy vehicles to blow-up better? Well the Alpha Legion can help with that. Add 3 to the result of the Explode Results and watch them go BOOM.

Warlord Trait – Cult Leader

Hey – you were going to take some Cultists anyway. Why not take a BUNCH of them and actually make them, ya know, scary.

Iron Warriors

Warlord Trait – Siege Master

Blow apart your enemy from down range with even more brutal efficiency. Re-roll those wound rolls of 1. And for added protection, take a Warpsmith to help you repair your vehicles. And then give him their unique relic which, apparently, will make the Warpsmith’s mechatendrils even more MEGA. Unfortunately, we don’t have any more info on that one. So we’re just going to have to leave that up to your imagination.


Emperor’s Children

Stratagem – Combat Elixirs

Oh now, THIS could be nasty. Chaos Marines CAN be taken in squads of up to 20…Just tossing that out there.

Warlord Trait – Raiment Revulsive

Do you want re-rolls? You got them with this relic.

World Eaters

Warlord Trait – Disciple of Khorne

Kill! Maim! Burn! Kill! Maim! Burn! Kill! Maim! Burn! Kill! Maim! Burn! Kill! Maim! Burn! Kill! Maim! Burn! Kill! Maim! Burn! Kill! Maim! Burn! Kill! Maim! Burn!

Relic – Gorefather



The Boys are back in town.
