Warhammer 40K: Chaos Space Marines Rules Preview – Faith & Fury
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS! SKULLS!
The Boys are back in town.
