From a 100% reliable source wishing to remain anonymous (confirmed by pics):
COVEN Supplement

Power from pain - by turn number.
1 – nothing
2 – Fearless
3 – Fear, Fearless
4 – Fear, Fearless, it will not die
5 – Fear, It will not die, zealot
6+ - Eternal Warrior, fear, it will not die, zealot

This is a straight copy from the book - yes some of the powers are omitted on purpose as they are not listed in the chart every turn

Warlord chart
1 – talos & chronos reroll FNP rolls of 1 within 12”of warlord
2 – warlord plus any grotesques he joins gain it will not die
3 – add or subtract 1 from reserve rolls
4 – If your warlord is slain by an attack/weapon with AP 1 or 2 or with the ID rule, gain D3 VP
5 – Warlord plus wracks he joins gain FNP4+
6 – Warlord gains preferred enemy

Artifacts
10pts – pick one of the following at the start of your turn which lasts until your next turn – IWND, fleet, poisoned 4+, rampage (used each turn)
10pts – fighting in a challenge – opponent suffers -5 to initiative
25pts – 8”range, S1, AP2, assault 1, blast, instant death, no effect on vehicles (used as a grenade in shooting phase)
10pts – Additional D6 attacks at S3, AP- at initiative 10, grant an additional pile in move at this step, no bonus applicable for furious charge, rending etc
20pts – IWND 4+, only wounded by poisons special rule on 6
35pts - +1 to FNP rolls, negate first wound suffered if it has the ID rule but when this happens, the item is lost

Coven Detachment
Required – 2HQ, 2 Elite
Optional – 4HQ, 6 Elite, 4 Heavy Support
Units that are available in the detachment – Urien, Haemonculus, Raider (DT only), Venom (DT only), Wracks, grotesques, talos, chronos
Benefits – if this is the primary detachment you can reroll warlord chart from this book. All enemy units within 12”of 1 or more models from this detachment suffer -1LD

7(!!!) formations as well!

OK GW, shut up and just take my money bounce

IMHO it feels like, from both codex and supplement, GW wanna support Coven while persecuting Kabal and Cult in this edition.

P.S> Many thanks for the information!

So this detachment has a surplus of hqs and the other has the standard two I was kinda hoping for somewhere in the middle

My goodness...

Now if we could just get a Wych Cult supplement that looks like that, everything would be fine with the universe!

That looks really interesting. And I expect it will get more interesting once I've gotten to start digesting the core codex.

Man, I am gonna end up spending so much money that I can't really afford to spend.

Does it mean they have no Fearless from Turn 5?

If this detachment is yoUr primary and you have a regular dark eldar detachment allIed then does the regular one use their pfp and this one use theirs?

2 - 1 haemy, 1 chronos, 2 units of wracks - all wracks gain precision strike, wracks treat turn 1 higher for pfp. if haemy is the warlord he gets trait 4 automatically

3 - 2 units of wracks in 2 venoms - if a unit in this formation scores first blood, gain D3 vp rather than 1. Wracks must start embarked an in reserve. Deployed turn 1 via deep strike

4 - unit of 5 Talos - gain scout. Score an extra vp for any non vehicle unit killed in combat

5 - 1 haemy, 1 Chronos, 1 Talos - form a single unit. Characters may not join it outside of this formation. Talos and chronos gain +1ws and init. If haemy is warlord, gain trait 1 automatically

6 - 1 haemy, 3 units of wracks with raiders. Master of pain from haemy confers to all units in this formation within 12". Warlord trait 5 if haemy is warlord

7 - all 6 formations as above in 1 formation - called the carnival of pain. Urien form formation 1 has his master of pain rule confer to whole formation. All non vehicles reroll 1's to wound in combat

Wow! Seems like some pretty thematic and hard hitting stuff. I may very well end up begging the wife for some extra hobby money this month. I'll just have to call it my very early Christmas gifts.

@Barking Agatha
I'm sure GW will produce something decent for the wych cults. Plenty of money to be made.

THIS IS AWESOME! Goodbye Kabal & Cult and welcome Coven...

Formation #5, there, with the haemy/cronos/talos. Looks awesome until I realized that PfP doesn't give FNP in this setup... So no benefit?

I am still....a bit confused. Those formations said nothing about troops -- how would that work out when forming an army - Wracks are still elites?

IMO you don't need troop as the detachment consists of only HQ and Elite (and HS for your choice).

I don't have 7th ed so how would a force drawn from the coven supplement ally with units from the new parent Dark Eldar codex?

And if I decide to get back into the game what will I need to buy to get current with the basic rules for 7th ed?

Coven troops would be considered battle brothers for everything. Only thing that wouldn't work is the detachment rules wouldn't transfer between detachments.
