It wasn’t a unit for the faint of heart. These are the Mayhem Pack, Helcult and Helfist Murderpack; all of them tweak both the brutes’ survivability and usefulness in one way or another. Such an approach adds a hard edge to the Cultists’ onset, complimenting their prodigious numbers with the armoured might of the Helbrute in their midst.

Whatever their outward appearance, every Helbrute is the same at its core: The Mayhem Pack makes a group of 3 brutes deepstrike and gives them all a free roll per helbutes on the crazed table suffice to say, you should tool these guys up for both Dakka and Choppa – this one is said to be the more useful of the two.
Conversely, one fighting amid the zealous ranks of the Word Bearers will dataslzte a heblrutes shrine to war, hung with devotional scrolls and wreathed in daemonic flame.

Interment into a Dreadnought sarcophagus is a great honour for a Loyalist Space Marine, transforming a mortally wounded hero into a living relic. Nearly good enough to actually persuade me to play 40k! Such unpredictability makes Helbrutes a terrible danger to their foes.
The influence of the Chaos Gods, coupled with the pilot’s own dark dreams of glory, will twist each Helbrute’s physical form within the Warp.
