Chaos Chariot is a Warriors of Chaos war machine unit in Total War: Warhammer. A Chaos Chariot is a terrifying thing to slam into an enemy line, punching through with maddening strength.

Description[edit | edit source]

Chaos Chariots are drawn by a pair of huge destriers swollen to unnatural size by the corrupting energies of Chaos. Each of these beasts is clad in tempered steel plates in the manner of their unholy masters. As these deadly creatures gain momentum, balefire flickers from their eyes and nostrils, giving the impression that the chariot has galloped straight from the realm of nightmares into reality. When a Chaos Chariot slams into the enemy lines, the bone-splintering impact is only the start of the carnage it can wreak. As the enemy is hurled in all directions by the sheer force of the chariot's charge, the hellish steeds plough through the enemy ranks, iron-shod hooves trampling bodies, and fanged maws snapping at exposed flesh. Spinning scythes slice apart the legs of those who attempt to flank the chariot, and the barbs and spikes that cover its chassis rip and tear at any foolhardily enough to stand their ground. But the chariot's cargo is just as deadly: the charioteers stab and slash from their fighting platform, maiming and decapitating those nearby with their cruel blades and spiked whips.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Anti-Infantry: Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that effects a large area.
  • Armoured: Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.

I assume you are looking for a solution to dealing with chariots. recruit 4 units of thunderers/handgunners. place them in the center of your battle line. your general and thane stand in front of those shooters. whenever chariots ready to rush in. let your general block them. it will be only two rounds of fire your shooters need. before those annoying chariots lay down or flee away. this method can also be applied to deal with vampire lords and ironhide
