Death to the False Emperor!

The Chaos Space Marines are superhuman traitors grown strong on the power of the Dark Gods. The ultimate nemesis of the Imperium, they surge from hidden lairs and hellish warp storms to fall without warning upon their victims. Murderous warriors clad in baroque power armour fight alongside teeming human Cultists and hulking Chaos Terminators; gargoyle-mouthed daemon engines stomp to war alongside growling battle tanks and hosts of malevolent entities spawned from the warp. Leading this malefic throng are the Champions of Chaos, evil warlords who have plagued the empire of Man for ten thousand years and more. Now, as the skies bleed raw Chaos energy, their time has come. Let the galaxy burn!

Codex: Chaos Space Marines contains a wealth of background and rules – the definitive book for Chaos Space Marines collectors. Within its pages, you’ll find:

User reviews about this book

  • Love the Enhanced Editions

    By Halcaeon
    I strictly use the enhanced editions for WH40k books, and this one is excellent as usual. I have had none of the issues I’ve read from other users such as poor formatting, mistakes, or rules errors. Sometimes the call-out boxes reference a “glossary version” of a rule or weapon, and no one specific to the dataslate or section you’re reading, but this is a minor inconvenience given the utility of the function. 9/10, will buy again.

    Lots of errors making it hard to use for games. I got a refund. The ePub version has fewer errors and is laid out better.
