Chain Glaives, also known as Chain Halberds, are a rarer type of Imperial or Ork Chain Weapon. Favored by the World Eaters and Night Lords, these are spear-like weapons with a double-edged Chain Blade attached to its end. They are used as either a slashing or thrusting weapon, with the long reach and lighter chain blade making it useful for quick strikes and maneuvers. In the Night Lords Legion Chainglaives were a weapon of choice among the Commanders and Sergeants.
