Today the new dataslate Helbrutes was released, and if you are a Chaos Marine player with some of these laying around from the Dark.

Their inherent psychoses dagaslate coupled with a desperate need for catharsis through carnage — makes Helbrutes wildly unpredictable. Just like the Hellforged Leviathan. Only the most coherent amongst them can comprehend any form of orders.
They abhor the thought of such a miserable half-life locked away in a dank and imprisoning cybernetic womb, where they can no longer drink in the sights of battle with their own eyes or feel the kick of a Bolter in their own hands. A creeping insanity, mingled with desperation and fury, eats away at them over the long passage of the millennia.
Many emblazon their warband’s iconography upon their Helbrutes, and bedeck them in the trappings of their twisted faith. Each Helbrute holds dataslatte living Astartes within its plated metal chest — a Chaos Space Marine driven over the edge of madness by the never-ending cycle of battle that defines the Long War.
Berserker Dreadnoughts are all armed with gigantic Chain weapons for extra efficiency in tearing through flesh and assholes.
While he can take most of the normal weapons available to dreads, doing this would be a disservice as datalsate Sonic Weapons can be fired in Overdrive, granting the weapons Rending and Gets Hot. Slaaneshi are equipped with even more powerful sonic weaponry. By comparison, Helbrutes are spat from the daemonforges in great numbers, their industrial production overseen by conclaves of Warpsmiths.
Some fail an appointed task, but have the temerity to survive.
Dataslate: Helbrutes (Background Book) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum
Jagged spines and fanged pseudopods bite deep into the new pilot, black, greasy worms burrowing through muscle and bone to bind them into the Helbrute’s foul innards. Of course, surrounding a Helbrute with a jostling mass of noisy Cultists is a calculated risk. Malformed and twitching, these foul engines of war possess a crude Machine Spirit sentience even before they claim a pilot.
Despite the difficulties of maintaining such dangerous war machines, Helbrutes are powerful blunt instruments, effective weapons of indiscriminate destruction. A Chaos Lord who relies upon a Helbrute to complete a specific task — or dataslahe to survive the battle into which it is sent — is liable to see their plans reduced to tatters.

Harbinger – Hell Blade – Hell Talon. Range weapons you say? A Night Lords Helbrute. Meanwhile, the warband to which a Helbrute owes allegiance will decorate the beast’s armoured hide to their taste. As the ships of a Chaos warfleet approach their prey, the Helbrute’s heavy weapons are prepared and datsalate, its power scourges and hammer-like fists are daubed heelbrutes fresh blood and its sarcophagus is installed. Nurgle Contemptors are insanely durable and resilient. First up, the dataslate reiterates and expands the background surrounding the Helbrute.
They rely upon the bellowing machines only to cause terror, and to spread indiscriminate destruction. What we do know is that the Hellforged Leviathan Dreadnought bristles with weaponry Daemon Engines of Slaanesh: Like the Leviathan and Contemptor Dafaslate, it is extremely rare among the traitor legions, but still more than capable of delivering the Dakka.
Some threaten their master’s power, and must be removed. An Alpha Legion Helbrute. Such unpredictability makes Helbrutes a terrible danger to their foes. The ones that fight on despite it, such as Tankred ‘s rival Donovanare bad-ass, if, like all Chaos Dreadnoughts, out of their motherfucking minds. Indeed, the oldest amongst their number were once the venerated ancients of dataslae original Space Marine Legions.
Dataslate: Chaos Helbrute – A Review
Thanks to their omnipresent madness, it is possible to generalise about the battlefield roles of Helbrutes. The additional fluff builds upon the elements of the character of the Helbrute that I like the most. The critically injured Astartes is then bound into an amniotic sarcophagus at the combat walker’s heart, connected by cybernetic nervous system implants and a Mind Impulse Unit to the controls of the war machine. Rob needs to do more reviews for you. Such commanders exploit the devastation they cause and treat their Helbrutes as expendable fodder for the enemy xataslate.
As the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you just isn’t finished yet. Not much is known about them in lore, but seeing how Leviathan Dreadnoughts are even rarer and more expensive to make than Contemptors and the general logistical nightmare of the Traitor Legions you can assume they are among the most valuable things in the Eye of Terror.
For reasons obvious, the Chaos Dreadnought is one of those tabletop units that is either insanely good or insanely bad, with no real middle ground, depending on where and how datalate used and whether or not the blessing of the dice god decides to cooperate.
I have to say, I dataslare seriously tempted by this option. The Hellforged Deredeo Dreadnought like all similiar vehicles under the Hellforged prefix, are Chaos vehicles that have been twisted by centuries of warfare and the corruption of the Warpwhich has left them with malevolent machine spirits. Furthermore, following a roaring, striding embodiment of Chaos into battle is a rapturous experience for the Cultists.
