So I don't know if it's been pointed out yet or if I was the only one concerned but the "Forge the narrative" YouTube podcast read the transport rules for the venom verbatim and it was "...may transport up to 5 drukhari infantry models not including scourge, grotesque, and skyboards."

So that's a relief for me.

Yeah this has come up from multiple sources, the cries of fear about a keyword black heart raider being able to transport only other keyword black heart models is gone, we can put those fears to rest.

Wait, you can't put Grotesques in transports anymore? Boy that's a bit of a step down, 4 grots in a raider was just about the only way to field our HQs except for cramming all the HQs into a single venom.

Incubi still serve just fine as a character escort since they don't need to be any specific unit size to fit in special/heavy weapons.

Incubi and Grotesques fit very different defensive profiles, though. Two models with T3 3+ and one with 4W T6 4++ aren't exactly slot-in replacements for one another. How are you even supposed to field Grots if not in a raider? Walk them up the table like a mon'keigh?

I wasn't suggesting they fit even remotely the same sort or profile, merely that if you want an escort for your characters in a raider to be made up of a unit that can be made say 8 strong with no negative penalties to the number of special weapons they can take, incubi will do just fine.

M7 plus rerolling advancing isn't bad movement, especially for such a tough unit. I know we all love our transports but footslogging is a potential option sometimes, plan on trying it out for wracks escorted by a haemonculus.

The original quote is talking about Venoms, which could never transport grotesques. I would not assume this has changed from the Index.
