Codex: Chaos Space Marines is your complete guide to the Heretic Astartes – a brotherhood of superhuman traitors hell-bent on destroying the Imperium they once helped build.
In this codex, you'll discover how the Chaos Space Marines came to be, their dark plans for the Imperium, and how they fight. Lore and timelines explore the long, shadowed history of these malefic warriors, from the dark days of the Horus Heresy to their renewed assault on realspace following the opening of the Cicatrix Maledictum. Collected art and illustrations bring the dark world of the Chaos Space Marines to life, while rules allow you to field an army from the Black Legion, Alpha Legion, World Eaters, Night Lords, Word Bearers, Emperor's Children, Iron Warriors, as well as renegade warbands, including ones of your own devising.
You'll be able to choose from a dark arsenal, containing everything from frothing, zealous Cultists to daemonforged war engines like the Defiler. Faction rules let you tailor your strategy and tactics to the legendary Traitor Legions, like the bloodthirsty World Eaters or relentless Iron Warriors, while a huge set of Stratagems offer you all manner of dirty tricks to unleash on your foes.
Meanwhile, the book is a fantastic resource for collectors, containing tips for building your army, examples of Chaos Space Marines forces, and loads of invaluable reference material and alternative colour schemes for painters.

Not even the Space Marines are safe from the lure of Chaos. Whether they hail from the dark days of the Horus Heresy or turned traitor more recently, these baleful warriors combine their gene-given gifts with dark blessings and malefic sorceries, transformed by years of battle into fearless, superhuman reavers.
Chaos Space Marines are the core of any Chaos army. Equally at home shredding opponents at range with bolter fire as they are in bloody melee, these guys can be geared up for pretty much any purpose you want on the battlefield. Combined with your choice of Marks of Chaos, Chaos Icons and deadly weaponry, they've got a place in any of your army lists.
This kit builds 10 Chaos Space Marines, with your choice of weapons. The set is absolutely packed with optional extras, giving you the choice of arming every member of the squad with close-combat weapons and pistols or ranged wargear. You’ll be able to add your choice of plasma gun, flamer, meltagun, heavy bolter and missile launcher. Optional components let you build up to two Aspiring Champions, giving you the freedom to build the set as a single squad of 10 or two squads of 5. A Chaos icon, interchangeable components and optional grenades offer you even more choice, ensuring no two units need look alike. The set is even designed to be compatible with the Havocs, allowing you to mix and match heavy weapons for even more choice.
This set is supplied in 144 plastic components and contains 10 x 32mm round bases.
Striding onto the battlefield like a demigod of war, the Despoiler scowls at the mortal chattel before him. He is an ender of worlds, a destroyer of hope, a bane unto the galaxy itself. Yet he is not beyond the siren call of battle, and leads his Black Legion to acts of pitiless slaughter whenever a worthy foe is near.
Abaddon the Despoiler is the ultimate Chaos character. Terrifyingly capable on the battlefield, he'll transform any army of Chaos Space Marines into a deadlier fighting force, either by causing carnage on the front lines or lending invaluable aura abilities to nearby troops.
This kit brings Abaddon to life in magnificent detail, drawing on three decades of art and lore to create a definitive representation of this iconic character. No detail has been spared – with baroque armour, intricate mechanical detail and grisly trophies, it’s a pleasure to paint and will immediately stand out from the rest of your collection. Even the base has a wealth of sculpted detail to help show Abaddon in all his dark glory!
You'll even be able to customise your Abaddon with optional extras. You can model yours with or without the cape depending on your preference, while a choice of three heads is provided to ensure that your model fits your interpretation of the Warmaster. One features Abaddon’s classic grimace, another bears the likeness of Horus, while the last features an ominous rebreather.
This kit is supplied in 31 plastic components, and comes with a 60mm round base.
Much of the organisation and structure of a squad's former Legion or Chapter has disappeared, and in place of appointed sergeants, the Chaos Space Marines follow the strongest, boldest and most brutal of their brothers. These blood-soaked soldiers seek to become the favoured of the gods and so are known as Aspiring Chaos Champions.
The Aspiring Champion is a plastic single figure miniature that displays a staggering level of detail. The armour is covered in details: there are demonic heads emerging from the shoulder pads and a hideous face emerging from the surface of the axe blade. There are also gribbly tongues, ribbed horns, chains, skulls and spikes. If that wasn't blasphemous enough, on the rear of the model, an Inquisitor's head is bound by a chain that connects with the deceased's eye socket.
This multi-part plastic boxed set contains 8 components and a sculpted Round base, with which to build 1 Aspiring Champion.
This kit is supplied unpainted and requires assembly - we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Paints.
The roar of a Chaos Biker's engine fires the damned soul of its rider to acts of greater recklessness. They trail brimstone and death in their wake as the harbingers of the dark legions.
Chaos Bikers are scouts, outriders and raiders who allow you to strike where your opponent is most vulnerable. Incredibly fast, well armed and hard to kill, they make for a highly mobile thorn in the side of any foe.
This kit builds three Chaos Bikers. Each can be customised with a choice of heads, arms, bodies and backpacks, ensuring you’ll be able to make each Chaos Biker look distinct.
This kit is supplied with 3x 75mm oval bases.
The mighty Land Raider is without doubt the most powerful battle tank ever built. When the Chaos Legions fled into the Eye of Terror they took with them hundreds of these precious machines. Now, whenever the Legions issue forth another Black Crusade these same Land Raiders are ever in the vanguard, proving their power even after 10,000 years.
This incredible multi-part plastic kit makes one of the most potent machines of destruction, the Land Raider and includes extra Chaos details and wargear.
