"We are filled with the power of Chaos!"

— when a Possessed Squad is finished training

The Possessed Squad are Chaos Marines that have been sacrificed, corrupted and then possessed by dark forces to share their body with Daemons. They can be trained at the Sacrificial Circle for 260 Requisition, 80 Power and requires 3 Squad population. Each squad always start out with 4 members by default but can be increased at a price of 65 Requisition and 20 Power.


  • Heavy Infantry.
  • Close combat specialist. Chaos Space Marines possessed by Daemonic entities.
  • Have a variety of upgrades to make them more effective.
  • Effective against Infantry and Heavy Infantry.


Possessed Squads have:

  • 300 Morale
  • Deals 72-88 melee damage
  • Deals no ranged damage
  • Have a maximum squad size of 10.


These deformed, daemon-possessed Chaos Marines are the ultimate melee unit for Chaos. They have several available upgrades to increase their damage and speed and allow the use of "daemonic fire" (it's like a flamer but purple). They are of course effective against infantry but also tear up Vehicles and Buildings. Generally you should never melee these, even if you have elite melee units - it's just not cost-effective. Stay out of their game, dance away and shoot them to bits.
