Chaos FA...er...atta? is up and breakdown (Where are the FAQ's???)

So GW has put up what I would want to call an FAQ for the Chaos codex but really it is just an Eratta...this is what we got so far.....

Page 61 – Typhus, Plague Zombies
Change to ‘Plague Zombies are Chaos Cultists that have the
Fearless, Feel No Pain and Slow and Purposeful special rules
and cannot purchase options other than to add additional
models to the unit.’

Ok that one was obvious but clarification was needed as RAW has it differently

Page 69 – Axe of Blind Fury
Change first rules sentence to ‘Models with the Mark of
Khorne, or Daemons of Khorne, only.’

Ahh I did not even notice this one....another clearly RAI interpritation....saying that since the daemon prince could not take MOK he couldn't have the axe....I never would have questioned it anyway...

Page 91 – superscript note 5
Change to ‘Models with the Mark of Khorne, or Daemons of
Khorne, only.’

Another quick fix to allow daemon princes to take MOK items....

Page 97 – Chaos Terminators, Options, second bullet point
Change to ‘Any Chaos Terminator may choose any of the
following three options:’

Why is this needed?

Page 97 – Helbrute
Change points value to 100 points

Ok that is from left field why change its points cost and by only 5 points? Interesting....

So No actual faq, probably a 1.0a to follow in a day or two these were just quick fixes....more on this later


  1. The terminator one is because as writ Chaos Terminators could only take one of the options - so could have combi, but not powerfist, or powerfist, but no combi for example, invalidating tons of already built models at a stroke. IMO good on them for changing it.

  2. And they lowered the points because the storm bolter is not standard. So if you take a storm bolter re add the five points

  3. Actually, the 5 point drop in Helbrute cost was due to a misprint in the English language codex. Foreign language codexes had him at 100 points.

  4. ahhh I never caught those things thanks
