In Total War: Warhammer 3, the four Chaos Gods can wield considerable influence over the game's map, particularly when playing as one of their champions. However, the advantage of comprehensive mod support is that it allows you to attain equal or even greater power through console commands.
While using cheats in Total War: Warhammer 3 may not be the intended gameplay experience, there are times when you may not want to restart a campaign due to your Skaven ally's betrayal. A sudden boost in gold or the ability to instantly conquer enemy territories can help level the playing field, and console commands enable you to achieve this without succumbing to Tzeentch's whims.
Total War: Warhammer 3 Cheats Table and Commands
Total War: Warhammer 3's cheats exist thanks to modder prop joe's efforts. If you've played the previous entry in the series, you may be familiar with their work.
Subscribing to the mod linked above adds a new button in the top left side of the interface which brings up a text box that allows you to input a variety of console commands. You'll find some of them below, as detailed by the mod's creator.

You have quite a few options, ranging from giving yourself a smaller or bigger boost to some fairly potent character and map manipulation.
Total War: Warhammer 3's console commands mod may, however, not give you the desired results if you attempt to add lords or units from other factions to your army. In practice, they can T-pose or not work in battle, requiring table edits to work, which are "beyond the scope/purpose of this mod."
