Chaos Warrior

From Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Chaos Warriors are members of dark tribes who leave behind all comforts of hearth and family in search of a lifetime of war, taking their first true step upon the Path to Glory. There is almost no returning after the choice has been made as the Chaos gods are jealous beings with little patience for mortal doubt or regret. While their weapons and armour may be fearsome the greatest weapon is the warrior himself, who in the quest for glory have fought in countless conflicts, their physiques strengthened by the gifts of their gods and their battle instincts honed to a terrifying edge. [1]

Organisation

Warbands of Chaos Warriors often form the armoured fist of many Slaves to Darkness Hordes and are typically outnumbered by the Marauders, but the sheer size of the realms mean there is a steady supply of Chaos Warriors with some warbands, or even Hordes comprised almost entirely of Chaos Warriors. Most often Chaos Warriors join together with those who worship the same, or similar, interpretations of one or all of the Ruinous Powers. On rare occasions an entire tribe may declare themselves upon the Path to Glory and become Chaos Warriors at the same time but in most cases warbands of Chaos Warriors hail from tribes different to a Horde’s Godsworn Overlord. However they assemble, Chaos Warriors fight as a grinding legion of steel and fury, using their skill at arms and formidable numbers to crush all beneath them.[1]

Each warband of Chaos Warriors is led by an Aspiring Champion who have proven themselves worthy to claim the honour of leading their kin to war. They must be forever wary of rivals from within their own warband and should they successfully maintain their position in time they can rise to higher ranks of champion or even become a Godsworn Overlord themselves.[1]

Wargear

They are clad in thick and strong armour, marked with runes of the dark tongue to bolster the wearer’s stamina and ward off enemy blows. Their weapons are typically wicked blades or crushing maces able to rend flesh and crush bone with a single blow that are cooled in fresh blood when being forged. Their weapons may be forged by their own tribe or instead supplied by fallen duardin smiths to supply their need for armaments.[1]
