Default Codex: Chaos Guard, Round II

Some of you may have seen my original Codex: Chaos Guard WIP. I'm posting it here as well for a few reasons.

1. It's been cleaned up and clarified a little bit.

2. It was in the wrong section in the first place so maybe here it can get some more feedback.

3. It's sort of a bump in a way

So, here we go. I give to you the WIP Codex: Chaos Guard. I'd love feedback on the fruits of my labour, and I'd love playtests even more (hint hint: +rep if you playtest....).


Army-Wide Rules:

Forward, you swine!: As long as the model with this ability is still alive, it may choose to inflict d3 weapon wounds on his unit to allow them to reroll a Leadership test. The second result must be taken regardless of the result, and the model may never allocate wounds to himself.

Vehicular Marks of Chaos: All vehicles in a Chaos Guard army (with the exception of Valkyries/Vendettas and Sentinels) may select vehicular marks of Chaos as described below:

Prayers to Chaos: Any unit that contains an Icon or Marks of Chaos special rule may take a Leadership test at the beginning of the Shooting Phase instead of shooting to attempt to gain the benefit of a specific prayer. Up to three prayers may be attempted for the entire army in one turn. If a double 1 is rolled for the prayer test, the prayer is counted as "free" and does not expend a use of prayer; if a double 6 is rolled, the prayer fails disastrously as described by the individual prayer entry. The prayers they are available depend on the Icon or Mark the unit contains:

Warhost Dedication: If the entire army contains identical marks, vehicle marks, and Icons of Chaos, the Chaos God they dedicated themselves to smiles upon the army. In such circumstances, a single unit in the army may be given the Advisor special rule, which causes the unit to not take up a FOC slot.





Fast Attack:

Heavy Support:


And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp, Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?
