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!

The mightiest servants of the Dark Gods are blessed with monstrous power and life unending amongst the Slaves to Darkness. Each Daemon Prince was once a devoted servant of Chaos, whose actions in life have earned him blessings beyond counting and elevation to daemonhood.
This multi-part plastic kit contains all the parts necessary to assemble one Daemon Prince. This 34-piece set includes: three head variants, three different weapon arms, wings and a host of other assembly options, and is supplied with one Citadel 60mm Round base.
Casting vindictive glares at their enemies and blasting them apart with mystical fire, Blue Horrors are as resentful and bitter as their pink cousins are gleeful and capricious. Muttering glumly, Blue Horrors cast azure flames from their fingertips, stomping and protesting as they do so. Should a Blue Horror be slain, it groans and flashes into flame as a pair of Brimstone Horrors replaces it.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 10 pairs of Brimstone Horrors of Tzeentch. Tiny creatures of pure malice, they caper about on their bases just as you would expect those made of fire to do. Also included are the parts you need to make 10 Blue Horrors of Tzeentch. Eyes full of fury and large mouths full of teeth, some pose with their talons outstretched to hack at their foe, others wield magical flames that dance about their fingertips. Covered in decorations, jewellery and feathers, they also include flames for their bases.
This kit comprises 40 components, and is supplied with 20 Citadel 25mm Round bases.
Gibbering nonsense with lunatic energy the luminescent Pink Horrors whirl and flail their arms, generating raw magic that fills the air. En masse, the Pink Horrors give rise to so much arcane force that they can hurl blasts of unnatural fire at the enemy. In combat the Pink Horrors use their powerful hands to choke and, should they be slain, they split in twain to form two Blue Horrors.
This set contains ten multi-part, multi-limbed plastic Pink Horrors. This set includes all of the components needed to assemble a hornblower, an icon bearer (with immense, flaming Tzeentchian icon) and an Iridescent Horror, a champion who gleefully doles out death with his grasping hands.
This kit comprises 55 components, and is supplied with 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases.
The Defiler was fashioned at the command of Abaddon the Despoiler. It is a six-legged machine with savage hooks and barbs along its limbs. The Defiler lays waste to the ground it moves over and batters down the strongest defences with its mighty battle cannon.
This super boxed set contains 1 multi-part plastic Chaos Defiler, including a twin-link reaper autocannon, heavy flamer and close combat weapons.
Maulerfiends thunder towards the foe like giant attack beasts loosed from the leash. Their eyes glow with balefire as ectoplasmic drool drizzles from their fanged maws.
The Chaos Space Marine Maulerfiend is a hulking model from which numerous barbed, segmented tendrils are unfurled. A fusion of metal and flesh that manifests in brutal creations, they feature a mind-boggling array of details, from vents, stretched skulls, wires, bundles of cables, pistons, cogs, spikes, claws through to their hoof-like feet, and the Mark of Chaos is emblazoned across the carapace.
This multi-part plastic boxed set contains 67 components and a large oval base, with which to build one Chaos Space Marine Maulerfiend or Forgefiend. On this kit, the heads and arms are swappable.
This kit is supplied unpainted and requires assembly - we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Paints.
