Chain Hammers are large, normally two-handed, weapons which combine the striking power of a great hammer with the ripping action of a chain weapon. The club-like head has multiple rows of spinning teeth to tear apart flesh pulped by the initial impact.
Chain hammers are known to be used by orks and the pit brutes of Kurse in the Screaming Vortex. Powered versions capable of splitting Power Armour were also wielded by the Accusators of the Black Judges.
