Lightly armed melee unit capable of detonating themselves to damage and suppress nearby enemies. May construct Shrines and use Worship to bolster nearby Chaos units. Data version: 2.6.0

Chaos Heretics (simply "tics" in online shorthand) are corrupted humans serving the ruinous powers of Chaos alongside Chaos Space Marines and Chaos Daemons. A squad of Heretics serves as the Chaos starting unit in Dawn of War II multiplayer.

  • Fragile unit with low health but decent damage in melee
  • Doom Blast makes them a good melee counter
  • Devastating against infantry with low-health models
  • Can upgrade to grenade launchers to counter mass ranged infantry or suppression squads
  • Shrines are situational but may be useful
  • Worship is essential to most Chaos play

Effective use of Chaos Heretics and the Worship ability is central to the entire Chaos faction, which relies heavily on Tier 2 and especially the daemonic units (Bloodcrusher and Bloodletters) that gain extra benefits from Worship.


There are three versions of the Worship ability, determined on which Chaos hero you choose:

  • Chaos Lord (Khorne): Increases the speed of nearby units
  • Plague Champion (Nurgle): Increases the health regeneration of nearby units
  • Chaos Sorcerer (Tzeentch): Infiltrates nearby units
