Nope.. no new units at all. All from csm and daemons.

Well, the 3 bloodthirster variants but that's it.

So it looks like the Decurion was but the first in a new wave of modular FOCs. So long as the CAD still stays available as a thing, I can't say I mind this too much.

What is this I hear about some units only being purchased in multiples of 8?!

And we now have 4? Brands of chaos vs 9 brands of loyalist marines?

Lots of stuff to digest.. but looks pretty neat to play.

Bizarre things going on though.. like defiler increase (??) , crap like that. Right now.. my biggest bizarro mess up is the Land Raider cannot take a dozer blade or dirge caster..  ? Dirge.. sure by why no dozer blade? Rhino can buy one.. *sigh*

Only skulltaker for named characters. I think the Slaughtercult will be good.. lots of neat little tidbits here and there. I think it'll be fun to play though.

yeah... kharn missed the Evite.
defilers are daemons of khorne in this so thats likely the bump in points
so from what i've read so far

Cool
relics are awesome.
lots of hidden synergy (skull cannon giving warp talons grenades!?!?!?!)
the blood tithe table gives lots of good options
formations everywhere!

eh
most statlines are the same
have to take at least one possessed squad
don't expect to shoot anything
no customizing bloodthirsters
where are the mutilators... they could be ok here...

wtf?
KHARN! WHERE ARE YOU?!?!?!
only 1 HQ per detatchment (need 2 troops and a possessed to unlock second)
detatchments very restrictive. cant get access to some units without taking others (cant take terminators without 2 squads of blood crushers)

fricking hillarious
in one detatchment you can take 9 lord of skulls
rhinos dying isnt totally bad!

I'm actually a-ok with the possessed tax... especially with them having both mark and daemon of khorne. But.. im pretty reliant on those dirge/dozers.

Still holding out hope for a Kharn addition. I would seriously consider adding in a kharn/berserker raider combo. A few odd things but im pumped to try it.. i think it'll be fun.

Sorry.. thats what i meant... id ally in a kharn/berserker/raider combo to the daemonkin list.

Lots of neat stuff to try. But like Jesse said... why no mutilators? A great opportunity to give them some good rules and sell somw of them.. they must have a million boxes of em sitting somewhere.

the real pain is the helldrake tax... 2 raptor squads AND a warp talon squad. the warp talons cost more than the drake...
and good catch on the possessed. thats pretty nice. give the tithe buff for attacks and have em roll the extra attack... 6 each on the charge...

edit- on a hunch took a look and warp talons also are members of the mark/daemon club

Yeah.. thats expensive for a drake. Id be ok with one squad of raptors.. but thats a bit much.

So.. being a 7th newb still, but when you take a formation or detachment, no obj sec for troops right? Thats only for combined arms?

The only way to get Objective Secured is to take a formation or detachment that specially states that it gives it out. Currently that is only the Combined Arms Detachment and the Allied Detachment, and one Tyranid Formation that gives Super Objective Secured.

they have a version of it.
its terminators with 7 lightning claw attacks on the charge lol.
2 base, 2 rage, 1 for paired claws, 1 if they are outnumbered, 1 if you use the tithe for 1 attack.
i'm cool with that number. and if you get a lord/herald with zealot...
there is some evil stuff you can do. almost thinking an allied dark apostle could be very very useful in this book.

big benefits for me:

can take mono-khorne daemon list, now with actual relics for my heralds, yay! no more irritating stupid silly rolls to make at the start of the game.

negatives:

no more cool upgrades for my heralds. thats pretty lame. And axe of khorne only available to astartes? what? and went from 10pts in the daemon book to 30pts? waaat.


I guess the codex has some great beenfits to make up for a lack of psykers, but damn if I dont miss axes on everything...

if thats true... I dunno if its even worth taking the army... all heralds all the time!

tho I guess heralds are cheaper options to deepstrike in, and use as hosts for when you summon your bloodthirster, especially with the armor relic

wait strike that, looks like heralds can take 1 (ONE) godamn artifact, and its the blade of blood. absolutely bs. guess I'm sticking to my daemons codex...

either need to take second slaughtercult (hq+ 2 marines/berserkers + possessed) or a charnel cohort (herald/prince + 2 bloodletters +hounds+bloodcrushers)
I'm sad I cant use terminators til i get some bloodcrushers... and someone bought ALL the khorne daemons from the den (I don't know who you are, but you are a monster!)

Also just noticed. terminator champs don't pay the stupid overcosted terminator melee/shooting options like the CSM book.

keep em cheap in 3m squads. they are still a threat for anything without 2+ armor and if they die at least you get a tithe point
