Chaos Space Marines (CSM) are Chaos Space MarineTactical Squads; heavily armored infantry which is slow but powerful. Stereotypically, the Chaos forces are assumed to have worse discipline and equipment than Loyalists, but they may have developed mutations or Warp-enhanced powers. In gameplay terms, the differences are:
Chaos Space Marines have slightly lower health and ranged damage, but slightly higher melee damage
They rely on permanent upgrades and passive bonuses, whereas Tactical Squads have activated abilities
Their upgrades are less versatile, but more powerful; they can pick a specialist upgrade, but cannot switch
Chaos Space Marines do not capture resource/victory points faster than normal
