That treatment was what made Chaos Contemptors different from their Imperial counterparts. Unlike the armoured reliquaries around which Loyalist Dreadnoughts are built, Helbrute sarcophagi are terrifying places to be trapped. Chaos Dreadnought In addition due to its corrupted nature, the Hellforged Leviathan Dreadnought draws energy from its kills and can use this to heal any damage it has suffered in battle. As a great many of these were not particularly mentally-stable in the first place what with serving Chaos and alland Dreadnought tech the Chaos Legions have is typically older, less-advanced, and shittier than that of the loyalists, most Chaos Dreadnoughts have a notorious reputation for succumbing to built-up psychosis and flying into screaming, psychotic rages in which they do a bang-up impression of an Angry Marine high on hallucinogenic drugsflinging themselves forward and burningsmashingblastingripping, tearingand raping anything in front of it.

Yes, formations. And just like the new Apocalypse Formations these cost no additional points to field. So in our usual methodology, lets tack this in the same order as the Dataslate does. Art and Lore The cover features an actual model instead of a piece of art, which is a bit disappointing as I always look forward to seeing their new cover art for their releases. As for the actual art itself, nothing stood out as being new here. What was new were some of the images of the models, to include images of the Helbrutes standing on tables with some terrain around them.
As for the lore itself it really takes and twists the idea of the Space Marine Dreadnought, starting with the sarcophagus that the unfortunate Chaos Marine has been sealed inside. It seems the sarcophagus of these machines is a kind of living organism of sorts that forms a psuedo-parasitic bond with the host bound within, inflicting constant agony and torture upon them, driving them insane.
All in all the lore reads pretty well and gives a nice wide variety to the Helbrutes we see, embracing the older with the new. Formation Rules As mentioned before, there are 3 Formations in this book. Well then this is the Formation for you. When making Reserve Rolls, make a single roll for the entire Formation. Tormented Terrors: At the start of each of your Movement phases, make a single roll on the Crazed Table.
All of the Helbrutes in this formation are affected by the result, even if they have not suffered a glancing or penetrating hit. All in all not a bad option for throwing them deep in the enemy lines. Regardless they look like they could be a lot of fun to throw into the enemy lines and watch the mayhem unfurl. Helcult Do you like Cultists? Do you ever feel that those same Cultists could do more to protect other models in your army?
Then the Helcult has just the answer and potential amusement just for you! Instead, they automatically hit a friendly model but not the Helbrute nearby. Randomly determine for each roll of a 1 which model is hit, from those in 6" of the Helbrute, even if they are not involved in the same combat. If there are no viable targets in range, these Attacks are discarded. However, for each successful cover save the controlling player makes as a result of this special rule the nearest intervening Cultist model is removed as a casualty with no saves allowed.
With a Helbrute who acts like Kharn in close combat with a bigger aura of killing! Helfist Murderpack Do you like large vehicle squadrons? Or do you wish that Helbrutes could be a little more predictable and controllable? Perhaps you have a lot of extra Helbrute models floating around because you bought a lot of Dark Vengeance sets.
Well if any of this applies to you, this might be right up your alley! In exchange the formation has the following special rules: Murder Pack: All Helbrutes in this formation count as a single vehicle squadron.
Other Helbrutes in the same vehicle unit can make Look Out, Sir attempts to protect the Helbrute Champion as long as they are within 6". This on strikes me as possibly the biggest surprise. Running at least points this is a unit with a massive footprint, but an interesting set of rules as well.
A close second would definitely be the Mayhem Pack if I was being more practical with my choices, while the Helfist Murderpack gets ranked last due to the model investment cost outside of hording the Dark Vengeance Helbrute, or having a large number of them kicking around as well as the price tag starting at points and quickly climbing from there.

JoJokazahn Range weapons are for pussies anyway. Interment into a Dreadnought sarcophagus is a great honour for a Loyalist Space Marine, transforming a mortally wounded hero into a living relic. However, the loss of such menial warriors is of little matter to the Lords of Chaos, many of whom view even these deaths as a suitable offering to the Gods. You are commenting using your Twitter account. For the Imperium, the crafting of a single Dreadnought is a major undertaking, an effort of artifice that is as much spiritual as physical.

Since these guys still have their sanity, they can also grab Dedications to Chaos Sorta like Marks, but with different boostsallowing for some extra help in a datasoate field. Chaos Dreadnought Mechanically, gelbrutes things are like regular Contemptors and helbrutds only be taken in singles, but the main attraction is a mess of special rules, mostly revolving around fucking with morale in a pre-ATSKNF environment. And if they actually did this, they would be put into Helbrutes for lulz. When they go into battle, either due to a hangover or due to pure balls-out ragethe average Dread pilot has ample amounts of frustration to vent.
The madness of the Chaos Space Marine within burns ever fiercer as he rises from the depths of his dormancy. They are bipedal, armoured war machines similar to the Dreadnoughts of the Adeptus Astartes. The additional fluff builds upon the elements of the character of the Helbrute that I like the most. Twisted amalgams of Warp-wrought metal and writhing flesh, they stand several times the height of a man. These formations, commonly known as Mayhem Packs, are goaded to a killing fury and then hurled into the very midst of the foe.
