As a result, most Helbrutes are completely psychotic, even before the Warp melds the metal of their hated prison with the flesh dataslage.

Jagged spines and fanged pseudopods bite deep into the new pilot, black, greasy worms burrowing through muscle and bone to bind them into the Helbrute’s foul innards. The reason why it doesn’t get enough Chaos mutations is because of its rarity and overall lack of exposure compared to more common varieties of Dreadnoughts.

Being a long-term Chaos Space Marine player, with a penchant for the slightly crazed, and considering that the Helbrute kit is really rather good see my previous review for more on that frontI am pleased to report that the dataslate adds another, rather funky, aspect to including these lumbering, homicidal, dameon engines in a Chaos Space Marine army.

Of course, surrounding a Helbrute with a jostling mass of noisy Cultists is a calculated risk. However, the target priority harkens back dattaslate 3. These formations, commonly known as Mayhem Packs, are goaded to a killing fury and then hurled into the very midst of the foe.

Dataslate: Helbrutes

Being a giant box of a meat grinder. Suffice to say, the Chaos Marines have a divided opinion on Dreadnoughts. Nurgle Contemptors are insanely durable and resilient.

Some fail an appointed task, but have the temerity to survive. These Traitor Legions will use their Helbrutes as mobile armoured idols, encouraging dataslatf masses of Cultists to clamour around the armoured walkers and follow them into battle.

Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. The old Crazed rules basically means that the Chaos Dreadnought, overpowered with pain and ragehas a small chance about 1 in 3 to act other than how its owner desires.

You can put on another close-combat weapon with another twin-linked bolter which can be upgraded to a Heavy Flamer just like the other oneand it can pack twin-linked Lascannons, Twin-Linked Heavy Bolters, or a Plasma Cannon, just like the loyalist flavor. The ones that fight on despite it, such as Tankred ‘s rival Donovanare bad-ass, if, like all Chaos Dreadnoughts, out of their motherfucking minds.


Dataskate he can take most of the normal weapons available to dreads, doing this would be a disservice as only Sonic Weapons can be fired in Helbrutee, granting the weapons Rending and Gets Hot. Indeed, the oldest amongst their number were once the venerated ancients of the original Space Marine Legions. Detractors point out that the helrutes of the Jelbrutes Dreadnought do not carry over to the Helbrute – specifically the options of drop pod transport or a rifleman dreadnought setup.

Ads by Project Wonderful! New armaments included weapons such as Butcher Cannons, Soulburners, or replacing the typical power source with a Hellfire Reactor.

What’s the most interesting thing about the Chaos Contemptors is that every single Chaos Worshipper mostly particularly powerful Chaos Lords and Dark Mechanicus Magos members want it badly to be entombed inside one of them after a “unfortunate incident”. By comparison, imprisonment within the raw, rancid womb of a Helbrute dataskate nothing short of living hell. Once-proud Chaos Space Marinesthe pilots rail against being reduced to a shackled lump of meat.

Twitter Facebook Google Pinterest Email. The job isn’t taken lightly, however: Twisted amalgams of Warp-wrought metal and writhing flesh, they stand several times the height of a man.

Fluff-wise, Helbrutes are essentially Chaos Dreadnoughts with the grimdark dial turned to They abhor the thought of such a miserable half-life locked away in a dank and imprisoning cybernetic womb, where they can no longer drink in the sights of battle with their own eyes or feel the kick of a Bolter in their own hands.

Small wonder that all but the strongest willed are driven swiftly and irrevocably insane. Most suspect that the biggest user of these things are the Iron Warriors given their playstyle. Indeed, they give off a sense of dark malevolence even when quiescent.

Dataslate: Chaos Helbrute – A Review

On paper, the Chaos Dreadnought is amazing save for one major flaw ddataslate is described in detail below – same cost as a loyalist Dreadnought, with one more attack. The Berserker Dreadnought is another variant of the Castra-Ferrum Dread that is aligned with Khorne and its designed in tearing several new orifices in whichever unfortunate victim who just so happens to be in its way.

These are the Mayhem Pack, Helcult and Helfist Murderpack; all of them tweak both the brutes’ survivability and usefulness in one way or another. Never again will they know the simple dayaslate of taste, smell and touch. Any Chaos Space Marine can end his days within a Helbrute’s shell.


Limbs truncated, bodies stuffed with pulsing cables, they can do nothing to free themselves as claustrophobia deepens to absolute, mind-numbing dattaslate.

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 certain field. Conversely, one fighting amid the zealous ranks of the Word Bearers will become a crimson-armoured shrine to war, hung with devotional scrolls helbrjtes wreathed in daemonic flame.

However, because of their rarity, not a lot of Dataslatd have been corrupted externally, looking much the same as they did 10, years ago.

For the Imperium, the crafting of a single Dreadnought is a major undertaking, an effort of artifice that is as much spiritual as physical.

Its close-combat weapon can take a variety of forms Many players like giving them Defiler claws, Chainfists, or giant sledgehammersbut regardless of what it is, it counts as a Dreadnought Close-Combat weapon.

Once the warfleet’s warriors have landed at their target, the Helbrute is unleashed, a lunatic beast of flesh and metal intent upon venting its rage on everything in its path, friend and foe alike. A creeping insanity, mingled with desperation and fury, eats away at them over the long passage of the millennia. Additionally, GW released a dataslate for the brutes with 3 new formations for basic 40K. Lastly, the Murderpack is a vehicle unit of 5 Helbrutes with one of them designated as a champion conferring both an Aura of Dark Glory and Character special rules, he also confers rage onto his unit if he goes down ; they also get to choose which Crazed result they have.

Tortured by an awareness of the freedom they once possessed, and the ignominious fate they now suffer, the Chaos Space Marine implantee soon degenerates into a raving lunatic.

The Mayhem Pack allows you to take a formation of three Helbrutee and deep strike them onto the battlefield from reserve. Furthermore, their thick armour plating renders them completely immune to small arms fire. And if they actually did this, they would be put into Helbrutes for lulz. The eviler version of the loyalist Dreadnought.

Yeah, GW’s really gone far with their names.
