Episode 54: Chaos Space Marines (Part 1)

In this episode, we talk about Chaos Space Marines, or Heretic Astartes. We talk about the history of the Chaos Space Marines, their rules, stratagems, and we spend time talking about their units. We also talk psychic powers and some of the really interesting combos you can do with this codex. We think this is a fantastic book that offers a lot of flexibility for those players who prefer to run traitor marines.

In this episode, we talk about playing with Titanic units in 40k. Many events have banned all units above a power level of 31, but how necessary is this? We talk about all of the units that would be banned and evaluate it for durability and lethality to see how good they are and if these units have a place in a 2000 point Matched Play game.
