Does the new Dark Eldar FoC still have objective secured troops?
If not it will hurt my feelings.

Also in the formation. is the same just a straight up 5+ cover for troops or is it something like shrouded to stack with other cover?

Here's a question from left field, who is the author? I can't find it anywhere.

Lately all the books have been written by the Studio Design Team or something similar. They no longer put a single author name on them.

'Studio Design Team..So model makers making RULES CODEXES.....  


The design team is not just the model designers. It's the rules writers, artists, eavy metal etc and includes everyone you might expect to have an involvement in creating the models and background.

Awkward.... it seems my post disappeared. Apologies if this somehow ends up as a duplicate...

So, question(s) about Archon (and associated gear).

- How much is the new Djinn Blade
- Does the Djinn Blade stack with another weapon? ie, does having the gear simply confer bonus attacks? Or must you use the Blade itself (a power sword) to gain the additional benefits?

What I'm trying to sort out is whether or not the Archon will be a proper lawnmower (for anything other than 2+ saves, that is). If you're able to power up the Soul Trap, you're looking at a *very* reliable wound-machine. Adding more attacks to this is, obviously, only beneficial.
Since the Archon no longer likes to snort with his wych friends, this seems the only way to even hope for bolstering his attacks.

Thanks again for all you've done here.

I may have missed it, but what rules changes were made to the weapons of the Chronos Parasite Engine? Are they the same (minus giving out a pain token)?

No more pain tokens, both are strength 3 ap 3. I noticed that the demiklaives now only give +1 strenght when used together but that's just from a summary screenshot so don't believe it until confirmed.

Thanks! Odd though. I wonder why they decided to reduce the strength (on both the Chronos and the demiklaives).

Is Vect mentioned in the book? I know he's not available to play but is he still in the fluff? I mean, did he get overthrown finally or should I continue to hold out hope that he's going to be a LoW in a future release with the Dais?

I know a lot of people claim that they didn't play him but I did, and he was a freakin' monster despite not having AP2 weapon. My circle of friends learned to hate him pretty quick Smile

He is in the fluff.

Read the thread, but couldn't find.

1 Can the haemi take a hexrifle?

2: Is hexrifle cause a AP2 ID on to hit rolls of 6, or do you have to wound with it ?

3: Sslyth Bulky?

4: Does the lhamean 2+ poison rule only affect the archon, or does it affect sslyths too?

1. yes, 10p
2. I think so. Its the Precision shot rule.
3. No.
4. only affects Lhamaean. No archon or Sslyths

Awesome work, Scorpion, thank you! Smile

This dex seems to be better and better the more I read the info Smile

BTW Vehicles are Relentless, so Venoms Fire Salvo 4/6 as stationary 6 at 36". 12 shots at 36" after 12" movement with dual Cannons are still in. Although 5 points more expensive if I read correctly.

Question: If i read right, many units (Coven, Sslyth, etc) start with FnP. Is this basic 5+ FnP, right, not just "count PfP 1 turn better"? So native 5+, that is unaffected by PfP Turn 2-3, AND Talos can boost it to FnP(4+)?

Urien has IWND or he kept his auto regain 1 W / turn? What do his special rules provide? Thanks Smile

1. Yes, FnP (5+) unaffected by PfP 2-3 but it the chronos that can boost it to 4+, not Talos

2. IWND, I described him in a previous post.

Scorpion- what is the cost for a klaivex and did his weapons or stats change?

incubi are 20 p each now. 3-10 unit size.

Klaive is the same, 10p, and same weapon 15p for demiklaives.
Awesome so my incubi gained +1 attack rampage and init 6 attacks for the same cost as before.

incubi are the same as before but only 20p. Klaivex is 10p more and only he has Rampage and access to demiklaives that are the samme as before (15p).

Also.. scorpion deserves a special title for this! Lord of information? Spy master? All seeing eye or some such!
^^^This!

Question:
1. Since Lhamaeans seem to be the new wyches what kind of gear do they have besides the 2+ poison blades?
2. How is the artwork of the codex? color pictures of units or just pictures of the models?

1. Fleet, NV, PfP, Kabalite armour, Splinter pistol, Shaimashi blade (2+ poison with Lethal Dose) Lethal dose: on a 6 to W you gain ID.

2. Color Pictures in the fluff but only model Pictures in the army section. (mostly bad Pictures since they take med Pictures too close to the models, IMHO)

What kind of upgrade options do grotesques have?
I think I;ve read that they come with liquifiers and flesh gauntlets. True?
What kind of gear can Aberrations take?

Thanks for the effort Scorpion.

Dude we really lost him... OTOH, Scorpion, is shadowfield exclusive to archons and clone fields for archins and haemis or can sucubbi take any of them?

1. Shadowfields and clonefields are arcane wargear that only the Archon has access to.

No carbines for trueborn.... That is really really not nice of GW. Good that I have a squad of splinter born, well I guess they just look fancy now...

Thanks a lot Scorpion, for providing us with all the info. Seems to be a lot of changes, even if small and each unit has a specific roll. At least I can now finish painting my 9 mandrakes. They are also min squad size of 5 right? So no riding in the archon venom.
