I think a lot of people did, but the degradation of the C'tan in the current codex is lamentable.

I'd guess at the 6 C'tan powers being the new codex-specific Warlord Traits. That makes more sense to me, if you consider that C'tan might be bumped back into the HQ section again as a possibility.

Strength D is worse than Strength 10?

Strength 10 does Instant Death to T5 or lower.

Strength D only does (potentially) less than that.

Vs Infantry, which is better?

Ok, so inside the Wave Serpent he can only target himself and that unit.

If the Spiritseer is outside the Wave Serpent when he uses the power are units inside nearby transports affected?

Voice of Twilight does not target any units, if it is cast from inside a Wave Serpent does it only affect the embarked unit or all units within 12"?
