I created this Codex as a way of alleviating some of the problems that some Chaos Space Marine players have experienced with the recent Chaos Space Marine Codex, by providing a full, characterful, up-to-date Codex that represents Chaos and it's own character, but without being overwhelming and overly complex as I feel many Chaos Space Marine Fandex's have and as I believe the 3.5th edition Codex was.

Whilst presented in a different format (thanks Majortom), it's very similar in design (in my opinion) to many of the Games Workshop Codices, providing the player with suitable options and characters, but without going overboard or making it too complicated, which doesn't fit with the more 'streamlined' design of the Codices. It also doesn't rely on special characters as force multipliers.

More to come later...


This PDF Document contains everything the player needs - outside of the models and 40K Rule-book of course - to use the Chaos Space Marine Fandex in the game, including:

  1. Full Army List including Unit Entries.
  2. Special Rules Glossary.
  3. Special Rules descriptions next to the individual unit to which they apply.
  4. Pretty(?!) Pictures.
  5. Background descriptions for new additions.
  6. Wargear Section, including:
    1. Psychic Powers
    2. Ranged Weapons Glossary
    3. Close Combat Weapons
    4. Equipment of Chaos - Such as Gifts, Marks, Icons etc.
    5. Wargear
    6. Vehicle Armory

Please note, that except for many of the new additions, background isn't included as it's included in the existing books, it's not needed to play the game and I frankly couldn't be bothered!
