Daemon Weapons are gifts of the Gods of Chaos, used by Chaos Champions and Daemons. Bound (sometimes willingly) in the form of the weapon, and imprisoned there for an eternity, is the spirit of a Daemon.


Daemon Weapons are only granted to the most powerful of a Chaos God's servants: Greater Daemons, Daemon Princes and still-mortal Champions of Chaos. Each weapon is unique and grants considerable power to those who wield it, however the daemon bound to the weapon can sometimes overcome the will of its would-be master.

Willingly you picked me up. Your first mistake. Willingly you drew me. Your second mistake. I do not allow my servants to make three mistakes, foolish mortal...
