I also think that, as soon as the initial shock of the (somewhat harsh) nerfs has blown over, the new codex will stand pretty strong.
PfP changes with that "near mandatory" relic is huge. Reavers losing bladevanes, but gaining rending HoW and such a steep price decrease (16PPM just makes them good).
Scourges will end up in quite a few lists. The combination of eldar units with WWP and FA none DT raiders/venoms has huge repercussions as well. It's a bit of a shame that they will need allies to bail them out a bit, but I play GKs... it stings, but you'll get over that.
If those new coven formations are true, FoC limitations are almost gone for DE armies who do want to play with usable talos/cronos units. That one formation with Haemy, talos and cronos is one unit can be pretty nasty if the Haemy can take a WWP.
The original codex might be a bit bland, but with covens, the dynamic of it changes very quickly. I pray that they do something similar for my GKs one day, but I'm afraid that's idle hope.
I had an AMAZING time at fightclub.
I arrived a bit late, so I missed the introductions, but man... I had an awesome time at fightclub! 10/10 I would recommend fight club to anybody!
