Thanks to the CSMs' wide range of anti-tank weapons and tanks, they are a great army to use in spearhead, if you use them correctly. A poorly made army can be destroyed in a matter of minutes! This Article will give some guide lines on how to constuct a good army of CSMs for Spearhead.

Spearheads - What to and What not to use

Spearhead Examples

Now on to Spearhead Examples.


Destroyer Spearhead:

There is only one vehicle in the CSM army that suits the destroyer spearhead, the vindicator.

3x Chaos Vindicator 450pts


Tank Hunter Spearhead:

3x Chaos Dreadnoughts w/ Multi-melta 360pts

Don't let them into each other's LoS and range, or fire frenzy could very well ruin your day.

Mechanised Assault Spearhead:

3x Rhinos w/ Dozer Blades and Daemonic Possession 3x 10 strong Possessed 390pts


Can someone insert tactics and an army list here?
