ok guys I know the first wave of DE will only come out on novewmber 6th (distance between waves usually about 2-4 weeks) and the first wave will include the codex. However my local games workshop is soon going to get a preview copy of the DE codex.


please post your request here to what you would like me to check (I have a short memory so only the very best will be picked) and if you would like vote on something that has already been mentioned.

Going this Sunday so I'll probably check for the last time Sunday morning.

Although posting stats and point costs is against the forum rules, i would be interested in knowing exactly what units are in the codex, and what their general style of play will be.

posting stats should not be against the forums, i mean, they post the basic stats on the GW website for everything. now the point cost i understand and agree.

I would be interested in any new special rules that you come across and i think you are awesome for giving us a heads up. thanks!

While GW do indeed post the BASIC stats of a majority of their models, its still better off to ban the posting of them on the forums purely because it creates confusion of what is allowed and what is disallowed.
Its a lot easier to simply ban the posting of all stats/points/etc, and also saves Heresy Online from getting into any legal issues with GW.
We all know how nasty GW can be when it comes to copyright infringement.

Of course you can. However, remember that their site is still copywrited material, and, even though it is availiable "free" online, doesn't mean it can be posted by anyone. GW has no qualms shutting fan sites or issuing notice to them, so it's best to play it safe.

ok guys thanks responding to your comments

I will not take a notebook because I might get caught leeching and a notebook makes it look apparent.

and I will definatly look into the forum rules to see what I can post and what I can't srry I didn't know some stats against the rules ( I sent one of the moderators a PM with a request for rules against posting certain stats)


keep on the good posts!

I'd be keen to know what the basic squads can be given weapon wise. As vague as you like but just how many special/heavy and what type of weapon eg melta/lance.

I just want to know that one of the new heavy support fliers has bombs that cause a wounds test. I wish in particular to know whether it inflicts instant death or just kills models in one hit (like JotWW)

1.New units (I voted for this and mine counts as 1 million of ures so its first on the list)
2.FOC (top fan rated)
3.options/stats (only going to look at the most basic units not memorize the whole book
4. DE special rules (also voted by me)

I'v skimmed over the codex a few times. The main rule I remember is Pleasure through Pain. Most units in the codex have this and basically you get a pain token everytime you destroy a unit for 1 token you gain feel no pain, 2 you get furious charge and 3 or more and you gain fearless, these abilities also stack. Some units also start the game with 1 or more tokens.
There are a lot of new units. Most dont have models yet but they look awesome in the pics and include units like wracks that are kind of bigger and badder grotesques. Theres also a few new skimmers. One thats kind of like a razorback in function (i.e. a raider with more weaponry but less transport capacity) and the nightwing is in there too.
The Archon can also take special units as a bodyguard kind of like Daemonhunter Inquisitors. I can't remember all the rules for thses as I only skimmed through but all the vehicles can have a 5+ invulnerable with an upgrade called the flickerfield :)
Hope that helps a bit

Edit - I'v also been making the new raider for my local GW and it is a beautiful model. Fairly easy to put together, even though I don't have any instrunctions I still managed it without much fuss. A pleasure to build
