Warhammer Community Sneak Peeks

When Angron calls, all the World Eaters answer – though only the sturdiest souls can actually fight beside their gene-father without fear of his rage, or survive the apocalyptic battles he prefers. These fanatical fiends are dubbed the Disciples of the Red Angel, and you can take a full army of them when Codex: World Eaters arrives for pre-order this Saturday.

The Disciples of the Red Angel are an alternative way to muster your World Eaters army, granting you awesome boons in return for excising mortals like Berzerkers and Jakhals from the ranks. If it doesn’t contain a fragment of Khorne’s empyreal power, it doesn’t deserve to fight beside the Daemon Primarch.*

Not only do your Eightbound and Exalted Eightbound gain Objective Secured, the new Arks of Omen Detachment means you don’t need Troops – so you can fill your army up with daemonic foot soldiers. One unit of possessed World Eaters from your army also gets to pick a special Daemonic Infusion. These offer a variety of extra boosts, such as helping to secure objectives or shrug off sorcerous harm.

40k AngronsDisciples Feb1 Boxout1

It goes without saying that having Angron himself as WARLORD gives your army a lot of close-combat punch, but the Disciples can shoot too. DAEMON ENGINES like Heldrakes, Defilers, and Forgefiends all find a place alongside your axe-swinging demi-daemons, and the devastating Lord of Skulls can put out an ungodly hail of cannon rounds.

The Disciples also get to wield eight** brutal Stratagems. Terrifying Assault allows their berserk charges to shock the enemy into a mortal stupor, while the Eightbound can take advantage of their Bloodscent to surge after retreating foes.

40k AngronsDisciples Feb1 Boxout2

Lastly, three unique Relics help the Disciples preach the good word of Khorne in an appropriately violent fashion, perfectly suited to both Daemon Princes and Lords on Juggernauts.*** In particular, the Skull of An’gr’ant finds a way to make them even more murderous in melee combat, in case a turn stuck in combat sounds like a tedious waste of killing time to you.

40k AngronsDisciples Feb1 Boxout3

You can pre-order Codex: World Eaters, Angron, and the rest of the crimson collective this weekend alongside Arks of Omen: Angron – which charts his return and the fate of the unlucky Imperials who stand in his path. It’s the next major narrative leap for Warhammer 40,000, and promises to go down as one of the most epic bloodbaths the galaxy has ever seen.

Not every member of Khorne’s favourite Legion is a superhuman Berzerker clad in crimson and brass power armour from an earlier era – many are just enthusiastic go-getters with a penchant for chainblades and combat stimms. These gore-drenched groupies are the Jakhals, some of the strongest and toughest mortals to serve in the forces of Chaos. They’d need to be, considering the frothing psychopaths they rub shoulders with.

Jakhal packs are fanatically loyal to their masters, and seek to emulate the World Eaters in everything they do. They’re quick to fight among themselves if there’s no more appropriate target for their bloodlust – eager to impress their lords with displays of brutality and skill – but in the field, they hunt together like starving beasts.

Each Jakhal’s combat prowess is further boosted by tanks of sloshing chemicals, sutured to their backs by the Legion’s Berzerker-surgeons.* This cocktail of questionable chems elevates their natural ferocity to inhuman levels, helped along by the addition of a very special ingredient: eight drops of blood, taken from the World Eaters themselves.

40k Jackhals Jan31 Boxout1

It takes a hardy soul to survive an infusion of this alchemical nightmare, and brutal initiation rites weed out the weaker cultists before they so much as see a chainaxe. These trials might earn a Jakhal a measure of esteem – or the closest thing a World Eater could feel for a mortal, anyway – but they’re still just a disposable asset to their transhuman betters.

In tactical terms, Jakhal packs are excellent candidates for front-line assaults. They’re more plentiful and expendable than fully-fledged Berzerkers, but still pack a punch that your opponent can’t afford to ignore… and even when they’re destroyed, their deaths feed your army’s supply of Blood Tithe points.


The Dishonoured are the biggest of the Jakhals – unnaturally swollen brutes who dwarf their fellow fighters. They’re grafted with cybernetic chainblades or heft huge skullsmasher maces, bodies studded with ports for even more combat stimms.

40k Jackhals Jan31 Boxout2

Khorne is about to be a very happy blood god indeed as the World Eaters hit the ground running* this week. So happy, in fact, that he’s doling out some extra-special abilities – such as Angron’s newfound resistance to banishment – with more to come should his followers offer up a sufficient Blood Tithe.

This new army ability rewards World Eaters warbands for every drop of blood spilled in Khorne’s name, whether it belongs to them or their enemies. So long as warriors are shuffling off the mortal coil, the Blood God is content, and his bounty of Blood Tithe Points (BTP) can be spent powering up your remaining units.

BTP are earned in a few ways. First, whenever a unit is completely wiped out, add one to the tally – it doesn’t matter whose unit, whose turn, or what phase it is. You get an extra point at the end of each phase if a VEHICLEMONSTER, or CHARACTER died, and one more if a TITANIC unit was eradicated.

Killed a TITANIC VEHICLE like a Baneblade or an Imperial Knight? That’s three points. Once you’ve amassed enough points, the Khorne-r shop** opens and you can purchase one Blood Tithe ability per phase that’ll last for the rest of the game, such as the speed-boosting Rage-fuelled Invigoration.

40k BloodTithe Jan30 Boxout1

These abilities snowball your warband into a bloody-minded avalanche of carnage. Having trouble carving through vehicles with chainaxes? Sidestep their high toughness with Total Carnage. Cowardly psykers hiding behind their powers? Shrug off their Smites with a dose of Spiteful Nullification.

40k BloodTithe Jan30 Boxout2

We know what you’re thinking, “But Warhammer Community, didn’t Angron spend points on some awesome regeneration powers in the World Eaters episode of Battle Report?” You’re absolutely right, and that’s the ace up the World Eaters’ ceramite sleeve. For just six Blood Tithe Points – two of which you’ll earn the moment Angron dies – you can reform the Daemon Primarch as if nothing happened!

Better yet, he gets to Warp Strike right back into battle, so you can give the long-ranged guns that took him down the fright of their lives when their apparent success only serves to hasten their demise. Nothing personal.

40k BloodTithe Jan30 Boxout3

As the galaxy enters an age dominated by the Great Rift, the Arks of Omen, and the Great Game begun anew, the World Eaters have reached heights of power not seen since the Great Crusade. Invigorated by their first ever dedicated codex and joined by Angron himself with a jaw-dropping new miniature, it truly is their time.

Angron’s return is bad enough for anyone of an Imperial persuasion, but he’s got a new trick that’ll make things much worse – it seems that he can no longer be truly banished. Inquisitors aware of this phenomenon tout many different theories for the Red Angel’s terrifying attachment to realspace,* but even voidship-class weapons will only slow him down while he re-manifests.

Should Angron somehow be cast back into the warp, he re-emerges unscathed precisely eight weeks, eight days, and eight hours later, heralded by eight Crimson Omens that strike fear into the hearts of all who witness them. You’d better believe he’ll be eight times as mad, too.

If you’re still valiant enough to square up against the Daemon Primarch despite all that, you’ll have Spinegrinder and Samni’arius to contend with.

The former is a titanic chain-axe, far beyond most mortal craft. It’s also known as Persiax’s Folly – named for the traitor Forge World that laboured for decades to construct it, only to become the axe’s first victims when Angron scorned their supplication. The latter is a daemon blade of prodigious size containing the essence of a powerful Slaaneshi daemon, whose gladiatorial posturing offended the Primarch enough for him to administer the beating of a lifetime using nothing more than an unworked iron bar – forging the blade in the process.

Behind him march the warbands of the World Eaters. Each of these warbands has operated independently since the events on Skalathrax that earned Khârn the Betrayer his epithet and tore the Legion asunder – but all are drawn by their fallen father’s call. Some, like Gladiator Cadre 331, still wear the blue-and-white plate of the Legion’s heyday, while others have adapted their skills to new theatres of war, like the shipbound Voidbutchers.

Their differences even extend to the way they do battle, as not all World Eaters charge screaming into melee combat. The Bloodstalkers are known** for their patience and gunnery, reasoning that a warrior who lives longer claims more skulls for Khorne. The 66th Armoured Company have become one with their vehicles, and bulldoze through enemy positions safe within armoured hulls.

No lord of the World Eaters worth his salt walks into battle – that’s for betrayers – and the most prestigious mode of transportation among Angron’s bloodthirsty progeny is the Juggernaut. These roaring daemon-beasts are fury incarnate, covered in thick metallic armour, and enjoy nothing more than thundering about the battlefield engaging in some good old-fashioned trampling fun.

That the champion clinging onto their back can get a few swings in too is an added bonus for all involved – Khorne most of all.

It’s been said that the World Eaters have a bit of a one-track mind,* but that doesn’t mean the Lord’s excellent new model is barren of choices. First and foremost, you can build the entire thing as the vicious Lord Invocatus – one of Angron’s most ambitious war-leaders.

You’ll also get plenty of pieces to customise your own headtaker-in-chief, including a choice of two different exalted chainblades, and two heads each for the Lord and his sanguinary steed. Though you could just decide to pinch the awesome chainsword-horn from Lord Invocatus’ mount Khal’guruth, instead…

If that looks like a package you’d like to sink your teeth into,** you’ll be glad to know that the whole kit comes as part of the upcoming Combat Patrol: World Eaters. This bundle of murderous fun is the perfect way to start a new World Eaters army, filled with nothing but brand-new kits and more chain weapons than you could shake a pathetic, chainless stick at (roughly 45).

40k Juggernaut Jan13 Image6

This box epitomises the massed frontal assaults the World Eaters love so much, packing in a whopping 20 Khorne Berserkers alongside 10 Jakhals – the only mortal cultists who could possibly keep up with their betters’ kill count – all led by a World Eaters Lord on Juggernaut.

While Chaos Space Marines are limited to a single Chaos Lord per Detachment, the World Eaters aren’t subject to such petty jealousy. They can field as many beast-bound Lords as their HQ slots allow, meaning you can muster the complete contents of two Combat Patrols – all without needing to spend any Command points on the new Heroic Support Stratagem.

Combat Patrol: World Eaters will be coming to pre-orders in just a few weeks, so prepare ahead of time by grabbing some Khorne Red and Blood for the Blood God – or just spray everything with some Mephiston Red to save time. There’ll be more to see from the new codex coming soon, so sign up for our newsletter to ensure you won’t miss a single dripping morsel.

Warhammer 40,000 has seen some epically powerful fighters in its 35 years, from risen Primarchs to incensed Avatars.

But few deserve even to be mentioned in the same breath as the apex predator of the 41st Millennium – Angron, Daemon Primarch of the World Eaters. A supreme fighter even before his ascension, Angron is a frothing cocktail of skill, power, and incandescent rage, and his arrival spells doom for those unlucky enough to meet him on the battlefield.

Just how powerful is he? We’re glad you asked.

40k AngronStats Dec12 Boxout1

Those beefy arms aren’t just for crushing bodybuilding competitions. The Red Angel clocks in at a monstrous Strength 9, making his open hand slaps as powerful as a lascannon blast, and that’s before he picks up his frankly terrifying weapons. Once he takes Samni’arius (the sword) and Spinegrinder (the axe) in hand, things get really wild.

40k AngronStats Dec12 Boxout2

Wielded as a pair, his Skull-taking Slash is perfect for VEHICLESMONSTERS, and especially stubborn CHARACTERS. Strength 14 wounds the majority of targets on a 2+, blowing right through tough hide or steel plating. Did we mention his mind-boggling 12 Attacks? That’s almost three wrecked Leman Russ Battle Tanks per turn* – on average. Do not get your fancy ride within a mile of this guy.

Don’t think that hordes of expendable infantry will bog him down either, as his Bloodletting Sweep triples the number of attacks he makes. Have you ever seen dozens of brave Battle Sisters disappear in the blink of an eye? You will soon.


With such power at Angron’s disposal, we wondered how he compares with his brothers in a mortal-murdering contest. Even with the assistance of a friendly Smite, a not-so-friendly Doombolt, and a downright rude Tzeentch’s Firestorm, Magnus the Red usually struggles to knock down more than 15 Imperial Guardsmen in a turn – never bring a nerd to a jock fight. Meanwhile, Mortarion averages a more respectable 21 kills with the reaping scythe profile on Silence, plus a noxious blast from his Lantern.

Even with an average set of rolls, you can expect Angron to effortlessly eviscerate around 30 troopers like it’s no big deal. He might not have an arcane alien gun or fancy psychic powers to show off, but who needs magic when you have huge arms and a whopping great axe to grind?


As sheer rage and wrath incarnate, you’d be forgiven for thinking Angron’s a one trick pony, but he also has a number of handy support abilities to assist nearby World Eaters. Granted, he doesn’t make much effort to command his men, preferring to inspire them with furious bloodshed.

40k AngronStats Dec12 Boxout3

When not leading fellow Khornates to greater heights of brutality with Infectious Rage and Glorious Bloodletting, the Red Angel’s sheer presence is enough to root enemies in place. Once Angron is within reach, death is assured. For Angron himself, on the other hand, death is not assured – he can, and likely will, return from death if your army has performed sufficient slaughter using Reborn in Blood. How does that work? You’ll have to wait and see…

Hot on the heels of Angron, the Berzerkers, and Lord Invocatus comes a full range of blood-hungry followers of Khorne. All together now – “blood for the Blood God, skulls for the Skull Throne!”

The Eightbound

Virtually unrecognizable from the mortal Space Marines they once were, every member of the Eightbound is each possessed by eight (8!) separate daemons of Khorne. As you might expect, this makes them some of the most terrifying combatants in the galaxy – warriors locked in a constant battle for their own souls.

Sometimes the spirit of an Eightbound World Eater can even emerge triumphant, becoming one with the eight neverborn sharing its physical form. These are the Exalted Eightbound, even more dangerous and daemonic than others of their kind.

When you absolutely, positively have to ferociously eviscerate every enemy on the battlefield – send in the Eightbound, who come as a set of three.


The World Eaters army isn’t just about the elite combat monsters of the Butcher Astartes. There are also new mortal followers in the form of Jakhals… who are combat monsters in their own right. These cultists are only slightly less deranged than their masters, and favour sheer brutality over tactical niceties such as “guns”.

If you think they look nasty now, wait until you see what they can do when they’re all juiced up on stimms.

Lord on Juggernaut

Lead your ground-shaking charge with the savage Lord on Juggernaut. Anything lucky enough to survive a sweep of his exalted chainblade will find itself impaled on the Juggernaut’s bladed horn.

These new miniatures are all absolutely dripping with character – and blood, in most cases – and they’ll look even better when you put the entire army together.

Like most Traitor Legions, the World Eaters also include more ubiquitous units in their ranks, such as Land Raiders, Daemon Engines, and Terminators, as well as immortal Daemon Princes of Khorne. And thanks to the new Codex: Chaos Daemons, they can also be joined by furious daemonic allies…

But where are the rules for these shiny new followers of Khorne? Look no further than the gore-drenched Codex: World Eaters. Take a first glance at the cover of this tome of carnage.

FinalePreview Khorne Nov19 Image3

Khornate hordes are more like a natural disaster than a disciplined army, steamrolling planets in waves of bloodshed. It takes a warrior of supreme skill and confidence to command them – a warrior like Lord Invocatus.

Scholars of Chaos lore may have heard of Lord Invocatus’ exploits already, particularly his devastation of a powerful Deathwatch watch fortress in a previous Codex: Chaos Space Marines. He leads thunderous charges of Bloodcrushers and Berzerkers in frontal attacks that light the sky aflame, and some claim he even rides the flames themselves.

WHDayPreview Khorne Oct8 Image1

His design pays homage to the classic Khorne Lord on Juggernaut from the early days of Warhammer 40,000, bringing the sheer mass and presence of the old metal miniature roaring into the modern day. It’s immediately clear that Lord Invocatus hits like a train full of bricks, and his Juggernaut has a chainsaw horn!

WHDayPreview Khorne Oct8 Image2

But what forces will he be leading? We’ve already seen a fresh new look for the Khorne Berzerkers, and the Daemon Primarch who leads them, but there’s more yet to come in 2023. Lord Invocatus would definitely look good leading a pack of summoned Flesh Hounds and Bloodcrushers into battle, but we wonder if he’ll have any more allies on the way…

If you’ve suddenly got a hankering to paint this incredibly detailed model – we certainly do – then don’t forget you can win him, along with everything else we’re showing off today, by creating a MyWarhammer account and signing up below.* Entries close at 11:59pm (BST) on the 10th of October, and then we’ll randomly draw a winner from a hollowed-out skull.**

After our first glimpse of a next-generation Khorne Berzerker in August, last week’s Warhammer Preview Online unveiled the full squad in all their gory glory. These ferocious troops are packed with all the World Eaters stylings we know and love – and the Blood God’s champions are taking things a step further.

It’s time to take a sneak peek at some truly brutal pieces from this and a few of the other upcoming World Eaters kits to see what makes these particular devotees of Khorne unique.

40k Khorne Sep5 Image1

Skulls are a much-loved motif in the 41st Millennium, but the World Eaters are the original cranium collectors. Khorne and skulls go together like Orks and green, and the Blood God’s followers build their bony trophies into armour plates and hang them from brazen icons. It’s a grim fashion statement that neatly straddles the fine line between tasteful and terrifying.

10,000 years of exposure to the warp will leave its mark on anyone – and horns, claws, and teeth burst out of armour plates as the World Eaters’ attire twists to suit their bestial nature. These parts are clearly meant for vicious close-combat machines, and mark particularly savage fighters as people to avoid – as if the massive chainblade wasn’t enough of a warning.

40k Khorne Sep5 Image2

What exactly is that? You’ll have to stay tuned to find out.

The Legion’s gladiatorial roots show up in small details all over the new models, from belt straps with broken chainmail to leather wrappings on their signature chainaxes. The axes themselves are adorned with classic Khornate motifs – skulls, spikes, and lots of brass trim.

40k Khorne Sep5 Image3

World Eaters often strip away parts of their armour to give their chopping arms greater freedom of movement, replacing their classic pauldrons with small, angular plates reminiscent of Cataphractii-pattern Terminator armour.

40k Khorne Sep5 Image4

One of the most recognizable parts of a Khornate Space Marine is their incredible taste in headwear, and the great sweeping vanes return with more detail and sharper points than ever before. If feeling the wind in your hair as you charge is more your thing, you’ll also have a wide selection of bare heads – some with horrifying fanged rebreather masks designed to reflect Khorne’s affinity for hounds.

40k Khorne Sep5 Image5

It’s been a truly bracing Khorne Day. We’ve seen a realm-murdering Gorechosen, rules for hordes of blood-slicked daemons, and downright hungry-looking XII Legion shoulders. Mountains of skulls tower towards the sky, blood sloshing down from their lofty peaks – and out of the rising carnage steps forth a solitary figure clad in crimson and brass.

40k Khorne Aug8 Image1

The mighty chains that once held Angron back were no match for his unfettered rage. In his wake follow the Khorne Berzerkers, brutal footsoldiers grasping roaring chainblades caked with viscera.

The current Khorne Berzerkers are one of the longest-serving plastic kits of the 41st Millennium – a genuine classic that has spent two decades out on the battlefield, earning them a nice retirement in Khorne’s Domain on the soothing banks of the Rivers of Blood.*

40k Khorne Aug8 Image2

The Khorne Berzerker is dead. Long live the Khorne Berzerker, in an all-new and very skull-y plastic kit. These fierce line-breakers will now look even better as they crash headlong into the enemy’s front line in a maelstrom of violence.

Codex: World Eaters is on its way, albeit a little while off yet, and the Lord of Skulls has plenty more in store for these ensanguined warriors.

If things weren’t dire enough for the Imperium, what with the opening of the Great Rift and all the other threats from within and without, another Daemon Primarch has rejoined the battle for the fate of the galaxy – he might not look it, but he’s extremely happy to be back.

Angron is arguably the most tragic figure of the Horus Heresy, a tormented soul failed by everyone. Used as a weapon by his masters, his hated father, and even his brother Horus, Angron’s fall to damnation could so easily have been prevented. But fall he did – and his current form bears horrifying witness to 10,000 years of pure hate.

Angron WarCom1

The Daemon Primarch of Khorne is a gigantic slab of warp-fuelled muscle. He’s been totally reforged into the image of his bloody master, flesh as red as the cascade of gore he leaves in his wake.

Yet take a closer look and you can still see the origins of this Daemon Prince. The Butcher’s Nails are still present, now fused into his very form. Likewise, scraps of his old Nucerian warplate still remain – like the shoulder pad that pays homage to his former Legion, even if the teeth are now somehow more… daemonic, a gaping maw almost literally eating worlds.

Angron WarCom2

Earning his ‘Red Angel’ moniker, the entity once known as the Lord of the Red Sands retains other trappings from his long-ago life as a gladiator in the arenas of his brutal home world. The weapons may be new, but they’re still chained to his wrists – Nuceria-style.

The World Eaters are breaking free of the confines of Codex: Chaos Space Marines and will be getting their own book! The Death Guard and Thousand Sons have already received the same treatment, which gives you an idea of what to expect – bespoke abilities, in-depth lore, terrifying new miniatures, and more.

The new codex for the XII Legion is still a little way off – but the Warhammer Studio are hard at work in Khorne’s sweltering hell-forges, and we couldn’t be more excited. In the meantime, those of you who already have World Eaters armies can keep taking heads – we’ll soon be publishing an Index Hereticus of updated rules in White Dwarf, including datasheets for Khârn and the Berzerkers, to use with the new Codex: Chaos Space Marines.

Among the new models arriving with the codex are – of course – updated Khorne Berzerkers! The current miniatures have served the Lord of War for decades, claimed plenty of skulls and spilt their share of blood, and now it’s time for them to return to the Brass Citadel and put their feet up.* But what will the new miniatures look like? We managed to twist a few arms in the studio for an exclusive first look at something rather important…

Khorne Berzerkers can’t go anywhere without their roaring chainaxes, and they’ll be using these heinous hatchets to chop their way through everything the 41st Millennium has to offer.

That’s not all – the codex will contain old favorites, dark legends, and some things that you’ve never seen before… We’ll be bringing you more updates on Codex: World Eaters and these murderous new miniatures over the next few months on Warhammer Community – so you can follow the Eightfold Path right up to release.
