here is no peice among the
stars, only au eternity of

and slaughter and the
of thirsting gods.

Welcome, followers of the Dark Gocfs,to Codex: Chaos Space Marines.
This tome has but one purpose: to teach
you the mysteries Of collecting, painting
and gaming with a Chaos Space Marine
army in Wartiammer 40.000. For gome of
you this path leads lo unfold power and
infamy, for olhers it holds nothing but
endless damnation. Only your own
prowess and the tickle favour of your
Chaos god will determine which of these
fates will be yours...

CHAOS
SPACE MARINES
Ten ihousand years ago !he Imperium
was racked by a lerrihle civil war called
Ihe Horus Heresy. The rebellion was led
by Warinaster Hoois, the most trusted of
the Emperor's Prirnarchs, who had been
led to believe by (he Chaos gods that it
was he, not Ihe Emperor, who should be
the leader of Humanity. Almost half of the
Space Marine Legions of that time sided
wilh Horus, p lunging the Imperium into a
terrible galaxy-wide war from which it has
never f u l l y recovered. The war encfed wilh
the death of Horus at the hands of (he
Empi-iror, but the Emperor himself was
mortally wounded and ig now only barely
kept alive by a life-support unit called the
Golden Throne. With the defeal of Horus,
the surviving Space Marines that had
followed him lied to the Eye of Terror - the
greatest warp storm in thu galaxy. The
Chaos Space Marines of the Traitor
Legions, as I hey are now called, lurk [here
lo (his day, consumed by (heir hatred of
Ihe Emperor, the Imperium and all
Mankind. Twisted by continual contact
with the Chaos gods, Chaos Space
Marines have become a terrible conker
thai eats at Ihe heart of the Imperium and
they might, one day, have iheir revenge...

WHY COLLECT A CHAOS
SPACE MARINE ARMY?
A Chaos Space Marine army is very
similar lo a normal Space Marine army:
Ihe bulk of its troops are elite and very
tough, they wear excellent armour and are
armed with a variety of devastating
weaponry. The only real weakness of a
Chaos Space Marine compared lo his
Imperial counterpart is that he has a (very
sensible) desire to preserve his own skin
and therefore does not benefit from Ihe
'And They Shall Know No Feat' rule that
prevents loyal Space Marines from
running away.

On (he other hand, a Chaos Space Marine
army has access lo an assortment of
unique iroop types no) available to any
ol her army. The most obvious of these are
Ihe myriad forms of Daemon that a Chaos
Space Marine army can summon to help
defeal Iheir enemies. As Daemons must
be kept in reserve, their points value is
raiher lower than their abilities would
suggest and they make excellenl assault
troops wilh which to back up a Chaos
Space Marine force. In addilion to
Daemons, there is a wide variety of Chaos
Space Marines who follow weird and
exotic cults and have exotic abilities to
match. Examples of these include Khorne
Berserkers, Pfague Marines and Noise
Marines amongst many olhers.

AHRIMAN OF THE THOUSAND SONS

A Chaos Space Marine
army may include
Ahriman as long as il
includes at least one

squad of Thousand Eons Chaos
Space Marines. Li you take him
then he counts as one of the
HQ choices for the army. He
must be used exaclly as
described below and may not
be given exlra equipment from
Ihe Chaos Armoury. In addition,
he may only be used in a battle
where bolb ptayers have agreed
to the use oi special characters.

rules as given in the

SPECIAL RULES
Master of Sorcery: Over the cerituries Ahriman has stolen trie secrets of his
so'terous opponents. He is therefore able io use the Doom Bolt, Stfeam of
Coffupiion and Htesfiy Curse psychic powers even without the appropriate Mark of
Chaos. Whal's more, Ihe Mark of Tzeentch that he bears means that he is able to
use all of his psychic powers without having to lake a Psychic lest.

The Black Staff of Ahriman: The Black StaB is a polent locus of psychic energy.
Whenever Ahriman uses a psychic power roll a OS. On a roll of 4+ he may use a
psychic power again iri me same lum anct may re-use the same power if he
desires. If Ah ri man succeeds in using a psychic power lor a second lime {ie, he
rolls a 4+}, then he may go for further attempts, bul these subsequent attempts will
only work on a D6 roll oi 6. As soon as Ahriman lails a dice roll he may no longer
use any psychic powers thai lurn , but may use them again normally in his next turn.

Bolts: inlemo bolls are sorcerovs bolt pistol shells which have been
inscribed "-ii" arcane runes that writhe wim blue-white f ire. Ahriman uses irie bolls
instead of normal ammunition whenever he fires his boll pistol. In addition, such is
Ahriman's skill lhat he may use Ihe pistol oven ii ho uses a psychic power lhat
counts as a shooting attack in Ihe shooting phase and which would normally stop
him firing the pistol as well. Targets wilh invulnerable saves or saving Ihrows
agaiosl psychic attacks may lake them as normal against inferno bolts, otherwise
all oiner armour saves are ignored.
