Description

Fanatical devotees of Khorne’s creed, the World Eaters Traitor Legion is formed of unnumbered warbands who slaughter their way across the galaxy in the Blood God’s name. They have taken countless skulls and rendered hundreds of worlds void of life to honour their bloody patron. The World Eaters are the progeny of the Daemon Primarch Angron. Few forces in the galaxy share the bottomless hatred and rage they draw upon in battle, their unparalleled ferocity multiplied by the Butcher’s Nails implanted into their brains. These devices pound relentlessly, demanding blood and slaughter, and the World Eaters are only too willing to acquiesce.

Khorne Berzerkers charge headlong into the foe, bellowing war cries and oaths to the Blood God and his Skull Throne, chain weapons revving with murderous intent. With them come the monstrous, daemon-possessed Eightbound, flesh-hungry Daemon Engines, and hosts of blood-crazed Jakhals. Obsessed with butchery, the World Eaters hack apart any who stand before them, rendering all up as offerings to Khorne. These beasts of war are a fast-moving force that surge to get up-close and personal with the foe, delivering the killing blow while staring them in the eye.

This bloody tome is a must-have guide for those who collect and play the servants of the Skull Throne. It contains all the rules needed to play a World Eaters army along with a forbidden library of sanguine lore. Learn about the initial seeds of Angron’s betrayal, the gory battles of Khârn the Betrayer – Khorne’s most ardent Heretic Astartes champion – and the blood-crazed hordes which make up this most feared of Traitor Legions.
