"The true power is here."

— when a Chaos Sorcerer has finished training

The Chaos Sorcerer is the secondary leader of the Chaos Space Marines. It can be trained at the Sacrificial Circle for 200 Requisition and 100 Power.


  • Commander Unit (Secondary).
  • Boosts morale recovery when attached to squads.
  • Uses many powerful abilities focused on damage and limiting enemy movement.
  • Can be possessed by the Bloodthirster
  • Effective against Infantry, Heavy Infantry. Excels at close combat.


Chaos Sorcerers have:


The Sorcerer is the secondary commander, the Chaos equivalent of the Librarian, although his special abilities are more offensive than the Librarian's. The Sorcerer has decent melee ability but lower health than his peers, so he's more a "spellcaster" than a front-line fighter. His abilities cause damage and movement restriction to enemy units instead of buffing friendly units. He can be used for the Bloodthirster sacrifice, though it's questionable to sacrifice an expensive commander unit when Aspiring Champions in cheap Cultist units can be used instead .
