The Chaos Warriors

The Chaos Warriors Race Pack brings a new race with its own new Legendary Lords, units, mounts, items, quest chains and mechanics to Total War™: WARHAMMER®.

Lay waste to the Old World as the dreaded Chaos Warriors. This Pack includes a full roster of bloodthirsty units, terrifying mounts and monstrous creatures. Lead the corrupted Chaos hordes as one of three new playable Legendary Lords. Embrace the Ruinous Powers as you embark on brand new quest chains, unlocking powerful items and gaining glory in the name of the dark Chaos Gods.

Beyond Kislev, beyond Troll Country, beyond even the barren Norsca Peninsula lies a land shrouded in darkness, frozen in an unnatural, never-ending winter. Here, the mortal realm and the immaterial realm of Chaos overlap, creating an uncontrollable gateway to that infernal dimension from which all manner of nightmarish creatures spew forth.

It is a place where few mortals have dared to venture, and even fewer have returned. The wild people that live in the lands to the south are devout in their worship of the Chaos Gods and many seek to journey north and offer themselves up to become tools of their will. Those that do survive this unholy pilgrimage and live to tell the tale are irreversibly altered. Clad in dark armour bearing the dread marks of ruinous favour, possessed of an unwavering resolve to carry out the will of their malevolent deities, with the indomitable Archaon the Everchosen as their leader, these are the mighty Chaos Warriors!

This pack makes the entire Chaos Warrior race from the main game playable in the Grand Campaign and multiplayer matches; as well as adding entirely new Legendary Lords, Lords, Heroes, Units, Magic Items and more.

Legendary Lords:

Players choosing the Chaos Warriors will be able to select from the following Legendary Lords with which to lead their Grand Campaign.

Sigvald the Magnificent

Beautiful from birth, Sigvald’s fondness for hedonistic excess saw him exiled from his tribe but also gained him a powerful patron: Slaanesh. Now, he heads an army devoted to himself. Slaying anything he deems ugly or unsavoury, he fights as much for his perverse ego as he does for Slaanesh.

Archaon the Everchosen

A former Sigmarite Templar, Archaon stumbled upon an ancient doctrine that contained within the secrets of his faith. Renouncing his allegiance to Sigmar he journeyed north to the dreaded Chaos Wastes to offer his service to the Chaos Gods. Here, the Ruinous Powers gave him their blessing to set out on his quest to become the Everchosen; the Lord of the End Times.

Kholek Suneater

Kholek Suneater is a formidable figure to behold. A gigantic Dragon Ogre, believed by many to be the second eldest of all Dragon Ogres, he towers over the battlefield swinging his gigantic hammer with ease. He is considered by some to be a God.


- New Horde playstyle! Introduces Horde-style gameplay to Total War: WARHAMMER, allowing the Chaos Warriors to raze enemy settlements and set up encampments anywhere, taking their war spoils with them. The armies of Chaos rest only when exhaustion halts their marching, leaving nothing but corruption and ash in their wake.

- New units, buildings, items and technologies: Unlock new units, buildings and technologies. Seek out the powerful Artefacts of Chaos and become the true Herald of the Apocalypse.

- Spread corruption in the name of Chaos! The foul energies that drive the Chaos Warriors leave ripples that permeate any place they pass through, influencing the populace. Use this to spread dissent amongst the enemies of Chaos, creating cultist uprisings through the proliferation of dark worship.

Key Units:

- Chaos Warriors

No longer fully human, the Chaos Warriors have been altered to become living weapons, honed perfectly to do their dark masters’ work. Imbued with the strength of chaos, enrobed in dark hell-forged armour, they can best several mortal warriors easily. They have no need for food, drink, sleep or other mortal comforts, subsisting on carnage alone.

- Chaos Dragon (Mount)

Total War: WARHAMMER - Chaos Warriors

Once, these great beasts sailed the skies as their brethren still do. Now, corrupted by change, these two-headed dragons are malevolent predators in their own right. One head spews forth dark flame, the other corrosive gas. Only the most powerful can ride such a monster, and even then it is only a temporary alliance, Chaos Dragons can never be tamed.

- Forsaken

Once proud men, their long-standing service to the Chaos Gods has left them altered. Where once they killed in the name of ambition and glory, their mutations have made them something less than human. Now they fight, whirlwinds of flailing flesh, hair and claw, only to satisfy their unending, unnatural hunger.

- Dragon Ogres

These magnificent, terrible beasts are amongst the most ancient and impressive of all living creatures. Their immortality is a gift from the Chaos Gods, given in exchange for an eternity of dark servitude. Seeking out lightning, they swing their gigantic weapons with ease, cleaving all but the most powerful warriors to ribbons.

- Gorebeast Chariot

A massive construction of hell-forged metal, mutant beast and jagged blade, the Gorebeast Chariot is ridden by some of the most powerful Warriors of Chaos and serves a single purpose: to shatter enemy lines with unstoppable force.

- Hellcannon

The Hellcannon is a massive artifice of metal and daemonic power that hurls bolts of raw arcane energy across the battlefield, vaporising anything in range. Part war machine, part Daemon, this infernal construct is powered by the liquefied remains of fallen enemies and operated by a sturdy crew of Chaos Dwarfs.

Full Unit Roster:

Note that Legendary Lords, Lords and Heroes can be ‘Melee’, ‘Ranged’, ‘Caster’ or a hybrid mix of types. This indicates their ideal role on the battlefield.

Legendary Lords:

- Archaon the Everchosen – Caster/Melee (Race Leader) (Lore of Fire)

o Faction-wide trait: ‘Everchosen’ – With Archaon heading your invasion, not only will you be able to move farther on the campaign map, you find it much easier to recruit Chaos Warriors and Chosen.

- *Prince Sigvald the Magnificent – Melee

o Faction-wide trait: 'Scion of Slaneesh' – Sigvald's inflated sense of self-worth emanates to those around him, increasing the Chaos Corruption he causes and giving him leadership bonuses versus human enemies.

- *Kholek Suneater – Melee

o Faction-wide trait: 'Herald of the Tempest' – Kholek is a mighty force to behold, even to other Dragon Ogres of his kind. As such both Dragon Ogres and Dragon Ogre Shaggoths have reduced upkeep when playing as Kholek.

The Chaos Invasion is an end-game event that occurs in The Old World and Mortal Empirescampaigns. It involves the forces of Chaos under Archaon, descending south to attack most other races.

As of the December 3rd update, the Chaos Invasion now has different levels the player can set at the start of campaign. These are 'On' 'Off' 'Hard' 'Very Hard' and 'Legendary'. This scales the number of armies spawned during the Chaos Invasion.

Description[editedit source]

The Old World despairs, for Archaon the Everchosen, Champion of Chaos, has come and with him the End Times!

Once a Templar Priest of Sigmar, Archaon uncovered a terrible secret which drove him to reject his faith and pledge himself to the Gods of Chaos. In their service, he has devoted himself to the world's destruction, defeating all challengers and rising to a position of dominance over all in the Chaos Wastes, achieving the ultimate accolade - his dark coronation as the Everchosen; the vessel through which the Dark Gods unite their followers to turn the world into a Realm of Chaos. It is to his banner that the Warriors of Chaos have been flocking, and it is his malign will that now drives them forth in a terrible wave of destruction destined to sweep all before it.

The earth groans beneath the iron-shod feet of Archaon's numberless horde, and with him comes death. Is there any champion of the Old World mighty enough to withstand the Lord of the End Times?

Overview[editedit source]

The invasion can be very destructive. The factions who attack are mostly hordes or similar factions, so they tend to raze a lot of settlements. Additionally, there is a global +2 Chaos Corruption during the invasion.

Factions involved in the invasion:

  • Warriors of Chaos are the primary aggressors. In Mortal Empires this is expanded to also include these subfactions:
  • Beastmen:
  • Some Norscan Tribes:
    • Varg: Automatically vassals of the Warriors of Chaos if still on the map
    • Skaeling: Automatically vassals of the Warriors of Chaos if still on the map
    • All other Norscan factions do not automatically become Vassals, but may ally with Chaos all the same.

Opposing Chaos is The Empire, Dwarfs, Bretonnia and other human factions. In Mortal Empires, they are joined by High Elves and Lizardmen. These factions gain the diplomatic traitShield of Civilization during a Chaos Invasion, making them more likely to stick together against Chaos.

Greenskins, Vampire Counts, Skaven, Dark Elves and Tomb Kings remain neutral, though Chaos will not hesitate to attack them if they get in the way.

Wood Elves remain neutral, but have negative diplomatic relations with Chaos factions, especially Beastmen whom they hate.

Many factions have a campaign victory condition that involves killing/dealing with Archaon and the Warriors of Chaos.

What happens if I'm playing as the Warriors of Chaos or Norsca?[editedit source]

If you are playing as a Norscan faction (World Walkers or Wintertooth), you will get an event called The Everchosen's Summons which allows them to choose to side with Archaon and the Warriors of Chaos, or to side against them and bring about your own invasion.

If you are playing the Warriors of Chaos themselves, you will get an event called The Treason of Tzeentch; you will still have to fight a rival faction called Chaos Gathering, led by Sarthorael the Everwatcher. In addition, Varg and Skaeling will not automatically be your vassals, but you have the ability to Awaken the Tribes to call addition Norscan Tribes to the map.

How it plays out[editedit source]

  • The event Chaos Stirs indicates the impending arrival of Warriors of Chaos armies.
  • The event The Rise of Chaos indicates the initial spawning of Warriors of Chaos armies in the Chaos Wastes.
  • The event The Doom Tide indicates the additional spawning of Warriors of Chaos armies.
  • The Chaos Invasion begins in earnest when Archaon spawns alongside Kholek, Sigvald, Sarthorael and additional Chaos armies.
  • When Archaon and the Warriors of Chaos are finally defeated for good, the invasion is over.
