PostSubject: Is there a Primer?   Fri Apr 20 2018, 20:50

Hi.

Is there a primer for the new codex? I would like to contribute when it comes to making detachments.

"Detachments can be difficult to calculate with Drukhari. This is because the  Drukhari Codex has three spesific sub factions, and some neutral units. You do not want to mix sub factions as you loose your obbsessions, faction bonuses. Drukari do get points if we have enough Patrol Detachments, and this is for the moment unique for our Codex,

But often there is some restriction on the number of detcahments you can take, usually 3. To make things more complicated some game groups do not allow duplicated detachments. To make things even more complex is the suggested 'Rule of three', meaning you can not have more then three similar datasheets outside of troops and transports. Some also consider the Archon and Haemoncolus a bit expensive for what they provide in term of raw power. Henceforth they can be consudered a detcahment tax.

Kabal:
HQ: Archon, Drazhar (Mercanery)
Troops: Kabalite Warriors
Elite: Trueborn (Index), Incubi (Mercanery), Mandrakes (Mercaneries)
Fast Attack: Scourges (Mercanery)
Heavy Support: Ravager, Tantalus (Forge World), Reaper (Forge World)

Transport: Raider, Venom
Flyer: Razorwing Jetfighter, Voidraven Bomber, Raven (Forge World)

Wytch:
HQ: Succubus, Lelith Hesperax, Drazhar (Mercanery)
Troops: Wytches
Elite: Bestmaster, Hekatrix Bloodbrides (Index), Incubi (Mercanery), Mandrakes (Mercaneries)
Fast Attack: Reavers, Hellions, Scourges (Mercanery)
Heavy Support: Tantalus (Forge World), Reaper (Forge World)

Transport: Raider, Venom
Flyer: Razorwing Jetfighter, Voidraven Bomber, Raven (Forge World)

Coven
HQ: Haemoncolus, Urien Rakarth, Drazhar (Mercanery)
Troops: Wracks
Elite: Grotesques, Incubi (Mercanery), Mandrakes (Mercaneries)
Fast Attack: Scourges (Mercanery)
Heavy Support: Cronos, Talos, Tantalus (Forge World), Reaper (Forge World)

Transport: Raider, Venom
Flyer: -

Mercanery (Neutral)
HQ: Drazhar
Troops: -
Elite: Incubi, Mandrakes
Fast Attack: Scourges
Heavy Support: -

Transport: Raider, Venom (Note, both of these transports have to belong to one of the three factions)
Flyer: -

Please note that units from the Archons Court are only available in an archon detachment. But then they unfortunatly do not count as elites for filling out a detachment. Likewise you can only have beasts in a detcahment that has Beastmasters in them, but the beasts unfortunatly do not count as fast attacks for filling out a detachment.

The index only units are Kabalite Trueborn (Elite Kabal) Hekatrix Bloodbrides (Elite Cult). The Forge World models are Tantalus (Heavy Support Kabal, Cult and Coven) Reaper (Heavy Support Kabal, Cult and Coven) and Raven (Flyer Kabal and Cult.)

Note at the moment the index and forge world units are considered exspensive in points compared to codex units. Plan your realspace raid acordingly.

Nice graph at the end there, mentally I'm having to do that all the time. although, can't a coven and a kabal create a vanguard and a outrider with mercenaries?

They can do that. The mercaneries are far right. But as you can see kabal can even do it with only the index with kabalite trueborn. However grabbing 3 units of scourged, or even a mix of incubi and madrakes might be a bit much mercaneries. In my opinion they are better when adding on to a faction where you are already running some fast attack or elites respectivly. Particurarly with the the reserves deep strike rules. 5 mandrakes or even 20 can be quite good. 15 and a HQ for just 1 CP, I don't know about that.

Hopefully it can be a helpfull tool if we ever get all the information in one place.
