The Legion of Chaos Ascendant is a vast gathering of Chaos Daemons fighting under united banners of the Dark Gods.[1a] A force of pure desolation, it is unleashed on those rare occasions when the Ruinous Powers make for common cause.[1b]

Overview

The Daemons of Chaos are often involved in the Great Game, clashing amongst themselves in the name of their patron God. However, on rare occasions, the Dark Gods will instead find common cause and will their forces upon their mutual enemies in unison. This force is know as the Legion of Chaos Ascendent, which is composed exclusively by Daemons of Chaos.[1c] At the helm of this great massing of daemons is the Everchosen himself. Be'lakor, the First Prince of Chaos, similarly leads his own legion of Chaos Ascendant known as the Legion of the First Prince.[1b]

Hosts

The Legion of Chaos Ascendent is composed of a number of hosts, each composed of daemons serving the Dark Gods:[1c]

  • Host of Rage: Composed of eight units of Bloodletters and their leaders
  • Host of Corruption: Composed of seven units of Plaguebearers and their leader
  • Host of the Arcane: Composed of nine Horrors of Tzeentch and their leaders
  • Host of the Depraved: Composed of six Daemonettes and their leaders

Legion of the First Prince

Be'lakor is known as the First Prince of Chaos, for it was he who had first gained the favour of all four Dark Gods, long before Archaon had done so. His legion is composed of a wild gathering of daemonic footsoldiers of Khorne, Tzeentch, Nurgle, and Slaanesh. Known as the Legion of the First Prince, this nightmarish army has destroyed a countless number of empire and kingdoms over the aeons. Be'lakor's antipathy to Archaon is stuff of legend, for Be'lakor claim to the title of Everchosen. Regardless, the two will join forces at time to conquer and despoil with formidable and terrible results.[1b] It is known that Be'lakor commands his demonic legion with absolute obedience, and the words of homage are known to draw the ire of Archaon. Nonetheless, his dominance of his daemonic footsoldiers is without question. In battle, the daemons of this legion will overrun an enemy with crushing waves of relentless fury.[1d]
