Chaos Warscroll Updates

It’s been a good year for Chaos players, with the release of the Disciples of Tzeentch and Blades of Khorne battletomes alongside new allegiance abilities for the Hosts of Slaanesh and the forces of Nurgle, and it’s about to get better.

Since the release of the General’s Handbook 2017, we’ve been listening to your feedback, and we’ve received a number of questions on how Chaos allegiance abilities work. We’d like to clarify that all references to ‘Blades of Khorne’, ‘Disciples of Tzeentch’, ‘Hosts of Slaanesh’ and ‘Nurgle Rotbringers’, are synonymous with ‘Khorne’, ‘Tzeentch’, ‘Slaanesh’ and ‘Nurgle’ respectively. For example, a Blades of Khorne army can also, and interchangeably, be referred to as a Khorne army.

For instance, a “Hosts of Slaanesh” army with Hosts of Slaanesh allegiance abilities could include Mortal units with the Slaanesh keyword from Slaves to Darkness, and a Khorne army could mix units from the Khorne Bloodbound list with the Daemons of Khorne list and the Slaves to Darkness. Similarly, a Nurgle army could combine Nurgle Rotbringers, Daemons of Nurgle and even Clans Pestilens units under the Nurgle allegiance abilities.

We also want to clear up how Chaos armies ally with monsters. After all, what self-respecting warlord would set about trying to destroy the Mortal Realms without an appropriately horrifying war-beast at his side?

13 warscolls have been updated to include the Monsters of Chaos keyword. This means that you’ll be able to add them to your army as allies (where eligible) and still keep your allegiance abilities. This includes 4 warscrolls from the Forge World Monstrous Arcanum, meaning adding a Warpfire Dragon or a pack of hungry Skin Wolves to your army is easier than ever.

You can download the updated Monsters of Chaos warscrolls and Monstrous Arcanum below. If you’re looking to add some war-beasts to your own Chaos army, why not browse the range?
