"For the Gods!"

— when a Chaos Space Marine is finished training

The Chaos Space Marines are a basic Heavy Infantry unit, having higher stats than the Cultist Squad. They can be equipped with every wargear piece the original tactical marines can, but this is only in the original dawn of war, winter assault and above expansions remove the missile launcher and chaos flamer, only leaving the chaos marines with the havoc bolter and chaos plasma gun. They can be trained at the Chaos Temple for 190 Requisition and requires 2 Squad population. Each squad always start out with 4 members by default but can be increased at a price of 50 Requisition.  


  • Heavy Infantry.
  • Resilient general combat unit strong at ranged and close combat.
  • Broad range of weapon upgrades. Can be upgraded to be effective against most infantry.
  • Can be upgraded with Infiltration (stealth).
  • Effective against infantry.


Chaos Space Marines have:

  • 300 Morale
  • Deals 26-31 melee damage
  • Deals 22-27 ranged damage
  • Have a maximum squad size of 10.
  • Have a maximum weapon upgrade limit of 2.


Chaos Space Marines functions very similar to the standard Space Marine fighting force. They have roughly the same abilities and can be upgraded with the same heavy weapons (flamer, heavy bolter, plasma gun, missile launcher). Additionally they can be infiltrated and their squad leader (Aspiring Champion) can detect infiltrated units. You should check which heavy weapons (if any) a squad has before deciding who to take out first - especially watch out for missile launchers targeting your vehicles. Your infantry is most effective with plasma guns; also consider using Raptors or Deep Strike if a squad is hurting you from distance.
