Only six c'tan powers now? I'll be interested to see what they've done with that. Hopefully they'll be worth using now.

Necrons have more units than GK/DE and their special characters have models so they're probably not going to be cut? That's all I got, anyway.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what they do with the c'tan. I find it interesting that in all the Shield of Baal stuff they are referred to as c'tan and no longer c'tan shards? Maybe there is no transcendent c'tan anymore and c'tan are just being buffed back to how they used to be (though probably more balanced). I mean the models are awesome, just no one will ever use them cus they are bullet magnets.

I expect the extra pages are more likely to be fleshing out the individual dynasties' fluffs. The old codex mainly focussed on necrons as a whole or the Sautekh dynasty, apart from one page of the different dynasties. It woud be interesting to see what makes the others different apart from the way they look.

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

I think it's safe to say they're keeping C'tan the same way after the Mephrit Dynasty stuff - the +1 Str/T and the 2 Crypteks + C'tan Shard formation.

And I keep telling you, the Nightbringer and the Deceiver weren't even that good, let alone overpowered; put away those rose-tinted glasses man!

Marines W9-D1-L4

Yep - my predictions for where the Nerfhammer will be swung is to Mindshackle Scarabs and Voltaic Staves, and either a rules nerf or a significant price increase on Annihilation Barges and Night Scythes. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Annihilation Barge hit 150pts, and Night Scythes would be more appropriately costed at 130pts although GW has had a habit of knee-jerk reactions in regard to tuning down the Flyers that were running the game two years ago (I often see Chaos players overlooking the Heldrake in favour of Spawn and Bikers nowadays, and Vendettas got a pretty huge downgrade with a large price bump and reduced transport capacity). Wraiths could also take a hit as they're basically the poster for what a good assault unit wants to be alongside TH/SS Terminators.

Loving the new Detachments in ever Codex, can't wait to see what the Necron's bonus will be.

I will have to get painting some of my Warriors and Immortals...c'mon some new stuff/rules about the Thokt Dynasty!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Huh, the Wraiths are also on 32mm. Didn't see that coming.

EDIT: Nah, it's just a perspective thing.
