People are wondering the downside of the new codex - I see a few:

1) Wyches no longer negate all bonus attacks gained by the enemies extra cc weapon ( now they can only do it with bases 2 base models even though non base 2 base can fight) -
This however is not really game breaking as elite wyches now have 2 base attacks and can gain an extra 3D6 meaning on the charge 41 + 3D6 attacks from a full squad = I'm not complaining

2) Archon can't choose his own drug/drugs - mind you only paying the cost of a fire warrior for them now makes them really easy choice

So benefits far out weigh cons easily

From what i have heard, the new webway portal thing is just suppose to be the Apocalypse Vortex grenade template painted differently! And its probably made made 100% non recycled resources

Just talked to the local club runner and he said its basically a metal sphere made of sheet metal or some such, same as the apocalypse one. I always thought the apocalypse one was made from plastic but I guess I was wrong.

Question for everyone...

Do the Torment grenade launchers stack?

If so, will there be a viable way to abuse it with a Raider spam and something like the Mindphase Gauntlet?

*edit* And how about three man scourge squads with double Dark Lances?

Unfortunately i dont remember the codex saying whether or not it stacks, will just have to wait for an FAQ! However if it does, crucible is a must for anti psycher goodness - since the psycher takes a leadership test not Psychic test.

I think it's 5 scourges per heavy weapon from what i've heard here.

I could definitely be wrong.

Don't give me rep, just poke My Bum ... and then give me rep.

2 heavy/special weapons per 5 models, as far as I can remember - so a unit of 4 scourges has no options for them, and is stuck with the carbines. Also, a unit of 5-9 scourges only gets 2 special/heavy weapons - you only get the other 2 at 10 models

This is correct. Also, Scourges have a minimum squad size of 3 models. Not explicitly related, but an interesting fact nonetheless.
