"The Gods blessed you too much, and now I shall end your misery! Such a fate does not await me!"

– Thorgar the Blooded One, on the you-know-whats.

"Quantity has a quality all its own"

– Attributed to many but it does explain what both players and the Chaos factions really use them for.

"Embrace your death! You are fortunate that you will only be cognizant enough to suffer the first one!"

– A Malignant Plaguecaster transforming an unfortunate Chaos Space Marine for disappointing the Plaguefather.



++Under request from multiple high-ranking members of the Ordos Malleus and Hereticus, we have situated an Inquisitor to watch over the writers in case they say... that-which-shall-not-be-named.++

+I am going to be keeping tally of the amount of times that phrase is uttered here. That's one.+

The very first artwork of Chaos Spawn by Tony Hough, from Realm of Chaos which makes his concept of it as old as the rest of Chaos. Wait, did I say it? No I DIDN'T MEAN TO NNOOOOSADNAFAISBFSDFSDGFGGGBB *BLAM* +Three. I do not have very good faith in the number being low if we have three acolytes turn into those abominations this far into the page.+

This is what happens when you have stepped over a line that even Chaos doesn't cross. On top of all that, they're basically multiple Candlejacks. If you even say Chaos Spawn, you will be consumed by Chaos and become Chaos Spawn yoursel JIGHDGGGUGEUGIGHOWHOQHOHWWP*BLAM* +And that's two.+

Ahem, as my predecessor was about to say, they're so awful in 40k that even saying their full name here causes the speaker to mutate into one. They're mutants whose appearances are always extremely varied and grotesquely horrible, as if someone got Lovecraft, H.R. Giger, and John Carpenter to team up and make monsters.

Warhammer Fantasy[edit]

In Warhammer Fantasy, Chaos Spawn WAIT NO SFHASKFJHSFAHLASLKHFSL--*BLAM* +Four.+ ...these things are mutations that only afflict those who worship Chaos (allowing anyone who isn't a rapeviking or insane wizard to say their name without fear!...Unless you meet Count Mordrek the Damned who can turn anyone into them with his Sword of Change. Then you are screwed hard.). Exposure to Chaos for the faithful (or unaligned) instead causes mutations that corrupt the afflicted into more feral forms.

Usually these mutations occur amongst common citizenry when the Winds of Magic blow too strongly from the miniature Eyes of Terror at the poles of the world, and patrols are required to cull them before they join the ranks of the forces of Chaos, although who it is that leads the purges differs from race to race.

The Empire relies on the familiar Inquisition and Witch Hunters. Kislevites instead rely on their Dvoryanin and Boyars (nobles) to account for the status of the outlying populations. Bretonnian nobles consider all the peasants to be little better than this usually, and said peasants usually self-police due to their extreme devotion to the nobility (however, simply taking all babies born with mutations to leave in the forest is what caused the Beastmen to grow so prolific in the first place). Elves (High, Wood, and Dark) are near immune to mutation, as are Ogres unless they serve willingly. Lizardmen and the Undead (Vampire and Egyptian) are both immune to mutation, with the latter actually able to reverse-corrupt things. And there have been no reported cases of Orcs with mutations, so no one knows what happens to them. Though goblins, when exposed to warpstone, do experience mutation, as is seen in the Skarsnik novel.

Degeneration into Chaos you-know-whats occurs far more often amongst Warriors of Chaos than Chaos Space Marines for two reasons. First is due to their EXTREME fucking devotion to the Chaos Gods, to the point that every last Norseman seeks to become a Daemon Prince and the Chaos Gods spread their blessings liberally. The blessed-too-much amongst the Norsemen tribes are usually used somewhere between biological weapons and war dogs depending on the degree of the mutations. The other reason is that Chaos Space Marines are still Space Marines with redundant hearts, lungs, thicker bones, and more muscles. A Marine can withstand more mutations than a human can without descending into becoming a Chaos SpNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBLBLBLE-*BLAM* +Five.+ Anyway, it gives them a slightly higher chance of becoming Daemon Princes than mortals since they can withstand the gifts of their gods better. On top of that, Chaos Space Marines have more varied levels of devotion to the Chaos Gods, with the Iron Warriors outright replacing mutations with cybernetics, and most traitor marines would see turning into a Spawn as an ignoble end to their career, much like getting interred into a dreadnought.

Spawn fear symbols of Sigmar and similar gods, and the power of nature as channeled by the Wood and High Elves can cleanse mutations from a subject. In particular, a book series depicting High Elves fighting Dark Elves and Warriors of Chaos describe how the Champion of Slaanesh prior to Sigvald the Magnificent is cleansed of all Slaanesh's blessings by simply touching the Everqueen. Slaanesh, very VERY pissed, began pouring his Daemonic energy directly into the Champion. When the Everqueen let go of his hand, that energy immediately turned him into a... a thingamajig. +Nice save Acolyte, you're learning.+ on par with a Greater Daemon.

Tabletop-wise: much like 40k's old versions, Fantasy Sp- they're terrible. They have low stats, slow movement speed with the inability to march or charge things (that last part is basically the stamp of death in Fantasy anyway). Their Marks of Chaos are random and cannot be counted on even working. Sadly, you'll probably need a few to run a few of these things in Warriors since there's a chance upon failure to become one for some of your options. In addition, some choices of Lords or Heroes come with some as pets (Cultist-chan should really be the poster child of Warriors rather than 40k cultists).

Alternate take: Warhammer Fantasy is all about having a good, fun time with your opponent rather than today's super-competitive scene. It's inherently fun to have the possibility of your unit champion turning into a Daemon Prince, and having the chance of becoming a Chaos Spawn as an unfortunate, but humorous downside. Especially given you hhHHHHHNNNNNNGGGGGGGRRFWBWRBLFBWFRBRLFFFBRNR *BLAM* +Six.+

The most significant of these creatures in Warhammer is Scyla Anfingrimm. The only one of them who still has the favour of a god.

In the video game devoted to Warhammer Fantasy, Total War: Warhammer, Chaos Spawn--OHFUCKNOAAAHHHDGRBLEAAGHGHGHGAASFGGHGHAFLFLFLFLFEEEAAAAAAAAAAAH! *BLAM* +Seven.+ They're actually fantastic. Small but workable unit size, reasonably to low cost, good HP pool, very high damage and most importantly, they will never break. Two units of them in any Chaos army means the AI isn't winning today. Still, having no armor-piercing damage and no armor meaning they aren't good against late game units, nor would they do any better when facing ranged units, especially when fighting a Wood Elves opponent who likes to spam 10 units of Glade Guard with Starfire Arrow. Beastmen have their own variation that can do poison damage, especially when Morghur's staff can summon them anytime within his range, like Deep Strike into range units' firing line.

Total War Warhammer 3 gave each chaos faction a fluffy variant of them. Khorne ones are killy, Slaaneshi Spawn are fast, have a debuff, and ignore terrain penalties, Tzeentch ones have the annoying barrier but also keep the Wyrdspawn RORs armor sundering; nurlge ones are tanky and deal poison.

Warhammer 40k[edit]

The Chaos Spawn dammit don't you ever learn AIEEEEBLAAAAAAAAAAAHGGHGH-*BLAM* +Eight.+

The UNITS in question were, in 4th and 5th Editions, considered by many to be the worst unit in any Chaos army book and, quite possibly, the entire game of Warhammer 40k (the Pre-Vetock Space Pope coming in a close second, until the Tyranid "champion" of Cruddace arrived). They were so bad, absolutely nobody took them. Not even for flavor or joke games. Even today they're still rare; the stigma is that deep. It became a meme that to even utter their name causes a horrid mutation turning you into a Chaos Spawn yourself. Wait! No! I didn't mean it-OHSWEETEMPERORMOTHEROFGLARBLBLBLBLBL*BLAM* Nine. We're going to run out of acolytes at this rate.

Ahem... Continuing where my predecessor left off, you-know-whats should only be referred to as you-know-whats. That or they-who-shall-not-be-named. Even though you-know-whats have received a nice crunch buff since then, the meme still remains since it fits the fluff pretty well.

In fluff, aspiring champions of Chaos normally devolve into said units for any of the following reasons: if they use Chaos solely for their own gain, their patron god thinks they're not worthy of their favor or have fallen out of their favor, they can't handle the sheer amounts of mutations they go through during their ascension into a full-fledged Daemon Prince, or, you know, it's Tuesday and Tzeentch is feeling bored since there's not a lot of "Just as Planned" going around. When this does happen, Chaos Spawns +Wait for it.+ devolve into no more than mindless heaps of mutated flesh who attack anyone near them and +Wait, did he actually get away with it? Inform the Inquisition! This man could prove most useful to our cause!+ eventually die after a short period due to their unstable form, and... did I just-- No... NOOOOOOO! GLARBLRAWRGLARBL*BLAM* +Oh, forget it. Not even halfway through and we have already reached ten. That's double digits. I have better things to do than this.+

The only known canon exception to this rule is the beast called Foulspawn, who somehow managed to become a Daemon Prince of Nurgle after being transformed into one of the abominations (and only because Nurgle found the result funny!) Only Failbaddon can comprehend how truly goddamn useless these things are. Generally by looking in a mirror. Khorne only knows why he hasn't been turned into one yet. Though it turns out ADB knows - it's because he's refused to commit to any one Chaos God, so it's not possible for one of them to inflict this on him because the others won't allow it.

Though not likely as canon, there's also Angra Mainyu, a Word Bearer who turned into a Daemon Prince just in time to join the latest Black Crusade. Then he just had to go batshit insane and utterly fuck it all up so hard that the Gods had no choice but to demote him to gribblyhood. His forces, meanwhile, were immediately usurped by the former prince's number 2. The reason we say it's not canon? Because it was fluff to a showcase of some bloke's Chaos army on an ancient version of the GW's Australia website, not some strange bit of lore from a Codex.

According to Black Crusade and The Tome of Fate, the Hereteks of The Hollows (specifically Magos Onuris of Forge Polix) have taken an interest in improving them to be useful. These "Death-Masques" have cybernetic implants forcibly installed into what's left of their brains and nervous systems. This combination of auger arrays, arcanocogitators, and drug-delivery systems not only allow Hereteks to control Death-Masques like giant, fleshy Servitors, but actually selectively mutate their bodies, enabling the Heretek to reshape a Death-Masque into a more useful form or give it whatever bio-weapons would be best for the present situation. This is awesome but alas, GW would never let us actually use something like this in-game when we could be having the "fun" with a pathetically random failure of a gribbly beast.

In very rare cases, the will of Tzeentch and the influence of the Warp can cause a group of Unnamable Beasts to fuse together into a Mutalith Vortex Beast, an even more vile abomination that is difficult to even look at without hurting oneself.

On The Tabletop[edit]

Warhammer Fantasy[edit]

Although a terrible option due to their randomness and point cost (akin to the Daemons army fittingly, which is interesting because it shows just how better the Vikings are than their masters), they aren't unusable; like most things in the more balanced Warhammer they simply aren't as good as other options although taking them won't lose you the game. Thanks to a more recent update to the game making it possible for your models to suddenly turn into one of the fucking things, players should now own some (thanks Games Workshop, my wallet was getting too heavy to carry!) in case the Dice Gods turn on them. Luckily, each Chaos Spawn sprue comes with two spawns built in and extra appendagaaaaAAAAWWWAWAWWAAWAWAWWBLWBLWBLDYEHTERYEETFDF *BLAM* +Eleven.+

40k Part 1: Why These Units Used to Suck[edit]

You-know-whats were just absolutely horrible before 6th Edition. Costing the same as three actual Chaos Marines, they would wander around the board aimlessly with a throw of the Scatter Dice, moved D6, had the Rage special rule and died to Bolter fire, earning your opponent a free kill point. They fucking sucked, essentially. There is considerable evidence that they were originally supposed to have the Feel No Pain rule, ergo making them marginally useful as a meat shield, but sadly the 4th Edition Codex, through a series of misprints, lacked this. To drive home just how bad these things were if they actually got into combat, there is no way statistically they could win combat against equal points worth of GUARDSMEN, the resulting extra wounds they would take from No Retreat would wipe them out immediately since they had no save. The ONLY thing they could tar pit was Fire Warriors and even then the odds were in the FIRE WARRIORS' favor.

40k Part 2: The Redemption[edit]

Failure no more. Yet the brave Guardsmen keep coming, despite witnessing stuff like that. Where's Creed when you need him!?

Phil Kelly remembered that under that mass of writhing limbs and stupidity, there's generally a Chaos Space Marine (and/or more likely had just finished watching John Carpenter's "The Thing"). So brace yourselves for a shocker: they're actually pretty damn good.

New features include...

  • A lower point cost (30, as opposed to the previous 40).
  • Causing fear while being fearless themselves.
  • No longer moving randomly or at a goddamn crawl. In fact, they move as fast as Metal Bawkzes and do not give a shit about terrain.
  • Rage now meaning that they get +2 attacks on the charge, making it actually useful.
  • A D3 roll every turn that determines what mutation they get for that turn. They can get a 4+ armor save, a roll of 2D6 for their number of attacks (you pick the higher one), or poisoned attacks (at 4+ to wound).

With the removal of No Retreat, they also won't automatically shit themselves with a lost combat. Indeed, being Fearless, they barely care at all.

Their stats are otherwise unchanged, so holy shit, it's almost worth taking two or three of them and throwing them headlong at the enemy as a multi-wound distraction to soak up fire for you. Almost. Okay, that is not true. 30 points for a model with 3 T5 wounds that can move 12", has useful special powers, can be taken in squadrons and can become T6 with Nurgle is frankly excellent. Mark of Tzeentch could conceivably boost their staying power slightly too. Stay away from Khorne and Slaanesh, though. Unless you run into Grey Knights or Dark Eldar, for whom the Spawn is just a mild annoyance.

Alternatively, run several Khorne-marked spawn towards any vehicle with rear AV 10 and watch them wreck all in their path, until your friends realize just what they are capable of and gun them down in a panic, which hey, can also be according to plan.

Actual serious use is fielding them as escort for a Jugger Lord. More wounds for less then a bike squad, and no encouragement to shoot... which your choppy lord should never do. Plus, they make your majority armor save nothing, meaning those grav weapons the loyalist scum keep using wound on 6s only.

Fun fact: renegades can get an unmarked three Chaos Spaaa... gribblies deal for only 55 points. Three Chaos Spawn for under the price of two. Let the good times roll!

...Oh son of a bLARGLABLARGL*BLAM* +Aaaaaaaand twelve. It's a shame. I thought he was going to make it to the next section, but he got too confident in his abilities. This is why we inquisitors abhor complacency.+

40k Part 3: The One Where You Actually NEED Them[edit]

In the new Chaos Space Marines Codex there's a table, like the one in the Warriors of Chaos Army book, on which your HQ rolls when killing an enemy character (keep in mind: not IC, just C). It's a 2D6 table with some of classics: +1S, +1T, +1W...

But one of the results... forces you to swap your awesome super killy Chaos Champion with... err, the-one-which-shall-not-be-named! So now you have to buy a box of these sick horrors in order to play. At least for Chaos Warriors, the time when your Marauder Chieftain turns into a Spawn and still does more damage than it would normally is truly priceless. The same thing probably works for Cultist Champions, and still proves to be useful, since the you-know-what detaches from the unit and could be used to tie up something shooty with poor melee capabilities, like Devastator squad or Crisis team, for a turn or two. All Traitor Legions can also take them as auxiliary choices, and they are the cheapest of the bunch. So give your Warband a mascot for full decurion benefits.

Rage and threats to eviscerate every GW employee that isn't Phil Kelly, are expected, but really, it's 'bout time you fucking newbies had to deal with this Chaos Spawn shit anyway...

Ohh my God-Emperor no WAIIIII... RAWRAWRASDAFGSFDS *BLAM* +And that's thirteen.+ (Automated Message From Cadia: We are out of Usable speakers and will be employing new ones at the Recruitment Center nearest you.)

...I'm guessing that was not as planned.


...I really have no idea how he pulled that one off...

+I counted three turners. That makes sixteen, and one of them is a 'god', no less.+

40k Part 4: Just as Planned[edit]

Certain psychic powers of Tzeentch can turn enemy models into you-know-whats, AKA you get them for free. Originally the "Boon of Mutation" spell used to be an extremely short range save-or-die assassination power for removing multi-wounded HQs, and while it only had 1/3 or even 1/6 chance of working against most of its intended targets, it was one of the few ways of circumventing Eternal Warrior at the time and could be used even when the sorcerer is locked in melee - the you-know-what summoned used to be just cherry on the top after you popped an enemy Chapter Master or Farseer with it. The modern "Baleful Devolution" is a much more comfortable 18" focused witchfire with a more reliable S6 AP and even multiple (if random) number of hits, but it only summons gribbly things on sixes to-wound (which also add Instant Death), and as a focused witchfire while it can snipe specific models, it can be LoS-ed. Thus it's more about sniping special weapons or sergeants and occasionally creating witchfire-sponges within charge range of a target unit you want to charge.

Aetaos'Rau'Keres can even transform entire units with his template "Boon of Mutation". Because what else could force you to buy dozens of Chaos Spawn models? Then again he's 999 poi... Oh fuck, I swear I didnmlgrabomUMFROPARGHMRMROMGH *BLAM* +Seventeen.+

40k Part 5: 8th edition[edit]

Well, 8th edition did arrive. The gribblies here got buffed, but they're still quite mediocre. For the same point cost as a Terminator they move faster and can hit harder with their random amount of randomly buffed attacks, but they're squishy and cannot deep-strike; meaning they'll just end up suffering from a sudden case of ballistic projectile to the face. You might want a model in case of double "1" when rolling on the Chaos Boon table or to fill a FA slot for cheap, but for the rest they're outclassed by other choices. That said, the Thousand Sons have a couple of useful Stratagems that are made specifically for them, including one that lets them select a buff manually instead of rolling for it and another that transforms any of their own characters into a you-know-what (named The Flesh-Change, no less) for free.

>Alternate opinion: while nothing to build an army around, taken in units of one, they're a very cheap way to fill Fast Attack slots, and a single... you know what roving the battlefield has its uses if it can stay out of sight until the late game or otherwise avoid getting shot (they also tend to be fairly low priority targets in the early game as your opponent usually has better things to shoot at), they can do work in the late game. They're punchy enough to threaten depleted units of troops or tackle a wounded character and have a reasonable chance of eating their face, and they're cheap enough that you can just fling them at said wounded captain or whatever and just shrug if they whiff and die. Not bad for a chaos spawn AH GODDAMMIT I ALMOST WAHSAFHWSFAFSGAGDV *BLAM* +Eighteen. This is becoming tedious.+

Age of Sigmar[edit]

With 5 wounds and 10 bravery, Chao...these fellas have some good stats for heavy infantry/meat shield status. The 2D6 movement and attacks characteristics can lead to some pretty unpredictable results, so don't expect everything to go as planned. All and all, not a bad addition to a Slaves to Darkness, Beasts of Chaos, or mixed Chaos army. Probably the most meh Spawn at the moment - wait, I only said half, it doesn't counNOOOOOSGADGSAGDFDGASFDWGASFAEWSDDAGSGGDWGSD *BLAM* Ninteen. Apparently the latter half triggers it as well with sufficient context? Useful information for the Inquisitorial archives.

Total War: Warhammer[edit]

Them (ahem) you-know-whats are a common unit that you'd find in the armies of the Chaos Factions. With the advent of Warhammer 3, they are now available in monogod flavors as well as their Undivided form.

Tzeentchian Spawn get barriers and armor-sundering.

Nurglish Spawn are difficult to kill.

Khornate Spawn are good at killing things.

Slaaneshi Spawn get Devastating Flanker and make enemies horny.

Unaligned Spawn are just Spawn.

(How someone got through not only Undivided and monogod types of you know what without being affected, is beyond everyone’s understanding)
