View Full Version : Chaos/CSM in Epic?

Looking over the GW website in the Specialist Games section, there's all of one whole Chaos unit, and that's the "Chaos Horde".

Looking in Army Builder, though, it would seem that there's all kinds of units available to Chaos. Specifically, Defilers, Chosen, the Daemon Pool, etc. All things Chaotic seem to be severely lacking in the model department.

I'm guessing for the units that have a Loyalist version, you can use that (Land Raiders, Predators, etc.). But where do you get the specific Chaos units? Forge World only has AI units for Chaos. Criminy, even Grey Knights/Daemonhunters have more specific units (maybe I should play them?). Oh, and speaking of Grey Knights, where are the Epic rules for them found?

Yes, I'm a total Epic n00b, but I'm wanting to dip my toes in...I just need to find the pool first. :)

Hey Joe! Although it's a shame, GW's model range for Chaos Epic is sorely lackign these days!
The 'Chaos Horde' does provide a good infantry starting point though but for most other stuff many of us prefer ebay (which is in fact a great place to find many hard to get epic models). Chaos, obviously, also provides a great scope for conversion work and there are a couple of producers out there who have made really good proxies for Decimators in resin; they're used for other 6mm wargames otherwise. I've also seen some brialliant fan made defilers over at www.tacticalwargames.net (which coincidentally is an excellent epic resource for those that don't know about it!).

What were your initial thoughts on making a CSM army?

What MOK said. Heading to eBay will get you much farther with Epic forces than the SG/FW stores will.;)

Check out the Warmaster range for excellent Demons and other useful Chaotic bits.

Thanks MoK and Ghudra -- I had a feeling that was the case since I couldn't even find anything Chaotic on FW. Ah well that's all right as Ebay has been good to me so far for Epic. :)
