List of New 40k Chapter Approved Secondary Objectives

There looks to be a huge list of new secondary objectives for just about every faction coming in the new 40k Chapter Approved Nephilim book.

We cleaned up the new product preview image from GW and you can clearly see who is getting what, along with the overall table of contents as well.

Chapter-Approved-Nephilim-Secondary-opjectives

First up, secondary objectives have received an overhaul. No more flipping between books – all the secondary objectives you can pick from are revised and collated here. That includes faction-specific objectives – there are even secondary objectives for factions that haven’t yet received their newest codex, such as the bold Astra Millitarum or frenzied World Eaters. Each player starts with three generic secondary objectives – Assassination, Grind Them Down, and Behind Enemy Lines – which they can swap out ahead of deployment. Another change – there are no limits when it comes to faction secondary objectives. If you want to pick two objectives specific to your faction, or even all three, go right ahead – so long as they’re all from a different category.

So it looks like there will be about 40 pages of new Secondary Objectives, followed by another 40 or so pages of missions, etc.

But the meat and potatoes of the book will most likely be from pages 4-7 where all the new Warlord Traits, relics, and Command Point 40k rules changes are.

Now let’s dive into the full list of secondaries followed by a note on missions.

40k Chapter Approved Imperial Secondary Objectives

There is every major faction and sub-faction in the game listed, so while we’ve included them all for you to check out, we will only break down some of the biggest players.

Here are the ones for the Imperium:

35 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

A few minor tweaks happened here, but nothing too insane.

34 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Black Templars see a few nice changes which will hopefully help them out.

33 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Death From Above got a bit easier to score and is possible to get a solid 5 VP in a turn, making for a decent update to the option.

32 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Dark Angels saw some NERFs, but overall they probably aren’t too big and should still be pretty comparable to the past.

31 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Deathwatch didn’t have many great options before and for the most part that’s still sadly true.

30 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Imperial Fists and Iron Hands saw a single adjustment each.

29 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Raven Guard and Salamanders both saw a single adjustment.

28 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Most of the Space Wolves’ options are much better than before, so hopefully, the faction sees a nice boost in viability.

27 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

White Scars got one option, but it is insanely strong. There’s a mix of VPs for killing on the charge, killing after advancing with shots, and killing a character or monster after charging.

The great thing about this is you’ll already be doing all of this naturally with a White Scars list, making this a very easy choice for players.

26 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Sisters see a nice boost here with Slay the Heretic getting simplified allowing for shots throughout a turn to score VP and allowing multiple weapon types to score points simultaneously.

Defend the Shrine also got better now that you can choose the obj to mark for the mission, making for an easy 9-12 points in most missions.

25 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Custodes lost Stranglehold and To the Last, so hopefully their new tweaked options are good enough.

24 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Unfortunately, Ad Mech didn’t get much help in the secondary department.

23 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

The imperial guard got a suite of new options, all of which seem a little bit interesting to test out.

22 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Imperial Knights are mostly unchanged.

21 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

 

20 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Grey Knights saw minor adjustments but are mostly the same.

List of 40k Chapter Approved Chaos Secondary Objectives

19 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

The 3 big options for any CSM list seem ok for the most part.

18 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Alpha Legion and Black Legion both have one option, but the Alpha Legion one is incredibly on theme and even better looks decent to use.

17 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Creations of Bile and Emperor’s Children also have one option a piece.

16 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Iron Warriors and Nightlords each have a single option in the book.

15 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Red Corsairs and Word Bearers each saw a single adjustment.

14 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

World Eaters got a single option in the book.

13 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Death Guard got some better secondaries, which most likely means they got a boost in competitive play. Fleeing Vectors and Spread the Sickness are both much better now!

12 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

The Thousand Sons saw two big changes with a large nerf to Wrath of Magnus and a buff of relatively equal size to Sorcerous Prowess making for a hopefully equally good faction that could contend with the top dogs.

11 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

With the removal of Stranglehold, the Chaos Knight’s Ruthless Tyranny is looking like a much better option!

10 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

 

9 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Chaos Daemons get a full three options.

List of 40k Chapter Approved Xenos Secondary Objectives

8 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Eldar didn’t see too many changes here.

7 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Dark Eldar saw improvements to both Purge the Enemy options and got a nerf to Herd the Prey which was pretty warranted.

6 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Harlequins were good and will continue to be as they saw a few buffs in their secondary options.

5 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Even though Tyranids got their codex recently, Cranial Feasting actually got a pretty significant buff here!

4 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

All Genestealer Cults options saw improvement!

3 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Necrons also saw some buffs across the board!

2 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Orks saw a few changes, but are mostly improved.

1 - Chapter Approved 2022 40k Secondaries & Missions

Tau is more or less unchanged.

Updates in general for any game are just good business. That being said it also seems like in 2022 GW will have their hands full trying to monetize these updates while getting hobbyists to adopt their new DLC style pay-to-play path to market without a reliable digital delivery option or platform.

Any way you look at it, big changes are coming for Matched Play in the new Warhammer 40k Chapter Approved Nephilim book.
