[CODEX: CHAOS LEGIONS BUILD 0.801 END TIMES EDITION]
DESIGNER NOTES FOR V0.795
ow then! The 1
Edition of Chaos Legion rules havefinally exited the Alpha test and were up into true usageso to speak. The development of these rules has been fruitful, tosay the least.
eve gone through a bunch of changes tomany of the units, most significant being thedevelopment of the characters of the codex, and nowhopefully all of our efforts are coming to fruition. There are 9 legions included in this codex obviouslyeach of the Traitor Legions. This isnt what I originallyplanned, I must admit. I just wanted to have the Big 5represented here originally. But supply has to meet thedemand. Theres no point making half measures. Theres no real way that I can summarize these notes.I hope you enjoy my first child. This should be the firstof MANY glorious reduxes of popular 3
Count the Seven! PS: A big thanks to Chaosgerbil for allowing me to usehis document framework in the production of this codex.Im sure everyone is pleased they dont have to read myhandwriting ;)
elcome to Codex Chaos Legions. This is an UNOFFICIAL set of ruleswhich allow you to form a warband that far more accurately depictsthe legion that you want to collect! The following links may be useful. They contain additional ChaosLegion resources:-

The tales you are about to read speak of great heresy, of betrayal inthe highest reaches, and of the rise of Chaos. Of ten thousand longyears of banishment. Of ten thousand long years of pain.The Legions within the Eye of Terror have not forgotten. While theLoyalists split their might into that of chapters, they remained wholeand pure kept sane only by the reasoning that vengeance is likely tofail when placed into the hands of a madman. But Power Corrupts and Absolute Power corrupts absolutely. The remaining members of the original legions are none like the noble warriors who sallied fromTerra to begin the Great Crusade and less still than the kinslayerswho left Terra at the end of the Horus Heresy.But a Marine never forgets and Primarchs forget even less thanthat. It is likely at any point that perhaps any one of the ChaosPrimarchs has a plot being planned, to bring death to the inheritorsof the Emperors legacy the Imperium
ARMY SPECIAL RULES
The basic Legion Tactics will give the unit the Stubbornuniversal special rule while involved in Close Combat. OtherLegions I.E Death Guard may replace this rule with theirown versions.
It is recommended that you use the Unique Legion Tactics later on in this minidex. However, these rules are merely there for completeness the codex is perfectly fine for use as it is.
:Units with the Daemon special rule have the following rules:
. If they enter play within6 of a Chaos Icon, they may charge on the turn that theyarrive.
A set of Chaos Marks have been included on Page 3 forgeneral use. All versions of the Chaos Marks, unless noted, usethese effects. If a model is marked by a Cult Legion (noted inbrackets next to that gods name), they do not need topurchase another mark it is included in that armys LegionTactics.Please note that while an Icon is required to gain a Mark, theIcon is not required to retain it. The blessings of thousands of years of worship do not merely vanish when the Icon is felled.
:This rule applies to all aspects of this codex this is a fan-made production. There should be no reason for anyone toflip out due to the rules contained within.
here you and youropponent cannot come to an agreement roll off to decidewhich way the decision falls. Please report any potentiallydubious rules to Herald of Nurgle as soon as you see them.Cheers! ;)
