Chosen are a Warriors of Chaos melee infantry unit introduced in Total War: Warhammer. Chosen are greater than their Chaotic brethren, more powerful and savage in close quarters, especially with great weapons.

Description[edit | edit source]

There are those amongst the ranks of the Chaos Warriors who bear the favour of the Dark Gods more than their fellows. Known amongst their kind as Chosen, their frames are swollen with unholy power, and with the gifts bestowed on them by the Dark Gods in recognition of the many fell deeds they have committed. These gifts are as varied as any other aspect of Chaos, but most mutations tend to be useful as weapons that aid the Chosen in his quest to inflict devastation on the civilised realms of the world. Even if a Chosen warrior bears no such stigmata, it is clear that he carries the grace of the Dark Gods from his aura of dark menace. The Chosen are truly the nobility of Chaos. The Chosen lead by example, fighting not as commanders but as elite warriors and champions. In this way, the Chosen hope to attack yet more of their master's favour and ascend to the ranks of the truly exalted. They advance unflinchingly through black powder firestorms, hails of arrows and punishing artillery volleys, their purposeful thread never falters as they march ever closer to their prey. Battle lines have buckled and broken at the mere prospect of a unit of Chosen closing in upon them, blades raised so that the methodical butchery of the foe can begin.

Strengths & Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Armoured & Shielded: Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage. Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.
