Thinking of base sizes, I'm really hoping Warriors get the upsize to their base. Every single foot is hanging over pretty much always.

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

I'm fairly certain they will, as every infantry unit that's been released since the new bases went into circulation are on 32mm. I mean, yes, that's only a couple of units, but still.

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.

All that is important is known.

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

From Warseer regarding the new formation:

Quote:
A few more info after a better reading. And keep in mind I translate things so in the English version of the WD things may sound different, so please don't go berserk if after I say "Dance of Death" it's in reality Death Dance, Deadly Dance, Mortal Tango or Fatal Dubsteb in your WD.

Regarding the Decurion, I find the way it works for some of these formations not that clear. Formations are presented in boxes linked by lines. You can take 1 to 10 of the optional formations, and since there are only 9 total it's obvious you can take some more than one. But the way it's presented I'm actually wondering if you can take anything you want multiple time, or only the first three ones (which are the Destroyers, Praetorian and the Canoptek one). In a way it makes sense to not spam things like Trans Ctans or Obelisk, but in another it makes no sense to be limited to a single Deathmark unit yet spam things like Praetorians... WD, why you no clear?

Also WD refers to the Decurion itself as giving bonuses to the units composing it in addition to what the Formations do, but I never managed to find these bonuses listed anywhere.

Some precisions:
- I previously said the Canoptek formation includes 1 Spyder, but later in a pic it shows said formation with 1 UNIT of Spyders. So I don't know which page is right.
- I said the Praetorian formation included a Stalker, but actually after rereading it it's an UNIT of Stalkers.
- Heavy Destroyers are indeed their one unit now.
- Deathmarks and Flayed are indeed only 1 unit.
- Dommscythes are 2 to 4.
- Royal court MUST include at least one Lord and one Cryptek.
- Obyron can replace a Lord.
- Illuminator and Orikan can replace a Cryptek.

Regarding the CTans, WD seems to really make a difference between Shards of the Deceiver, Nightbringer, Trans CTan and the Vault. This is how their power work:
- During the shooting phase, chose an enemy unit.
- Roll a D6 or pick a card to determine the attack it suffers.
- The randomness represents the CTan basically doing whatever he wants when released on a battlefield.
- Each attack comes in 2 Flavors.
- The first one, supposedly already devastating, is used by the two shards and the Trans CTan.
- The second one, that appears to be the powerful Apocalypse effect, is for the Vault.

>> Nightbringer and the Deciever were never as shit-hot as people made them out to be anyhoo. I like the fact that you can now kinda make yer own shard, without being stuck with one or t'other. Maybe just me though.

Looking at all th images since the shield of baal campaign book they are on 32mm, so that is definite

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

So the Decurion consists of 1-10 formations and gives them an extra buff?

Why would you not bring that for your one formation and get the free buff on top of your Command Benefits for being a Formation?
