Chaos Cultists are followers of the Chaos Gods, malevolent deities who represent the most primal and destructive emotions and desires. They are often depicted as being fanatical and devoted to their gods, and are willing to commit any atrocity in their name.

Twisted and corrupted by their worship of the Chaos Gods, their appearance often reflects this corruption. They may have physical deformities or mutations, and may be dressed in ragged, ceremonial robes or other forms of chaotic clothing.

While often poorly equipped, their determination (and sheer weight of numbers) can often turn the tide of any conflict.
