News!So, a bright young chap on the Dark City has his copy of the book and has answered a few questions users had. The original thread can be found here. The ever zealous moderators have confirmed with photos that he has the sacred text itself...
AP3 HUSKBLADE YOU SAY?!? ENGAGE NECKBEARD RAGE
Here is a summary of his findings: (I have put big buffs in bold)
- Cronos & Talos are 1-3 in a unit (but can't mix)
- Kabalites are now 8pts. PGL gives soulblight. This means they have no way to get defensive grades. Weapons etc. remain the same
- Razorwwing is 130 points and can only take nightshields. It is a fast attack choice & Dark Lances cost 5 more than Dissies. No vector dancer.
- Agoniser is AP 3 poison (+4) - This is a HUGE buff!
- Arena champions may only take power swords / agonisers as power weapons.
- Wyches have 1 attack base.
- Klaivex powers are gone.
- Ravagers still AV11, but no Aerial Assault
- Haemonculus Ancient is in (ie replaces old Haemonculus).
- 1 formation in the book (grants 6+ cover on first turn/any night fight turn to all units and 5+ to troops).
- Lhamean loses her ability to give poison to Archon.
- Grotesques have the same stats but, no longer blow up, have Flesh Gauntlets + CCW and Rampage. Flesh Gauntlets are: S user, AP-, ID on a 6 and poison 4+
- Scourges can take 4 heavy weapons in a squad of 5; the cost for 4 with HWB is 120 pts.
- Other squads may not enter the WWP once used. It grants a non-scatter DS to the HQ + unit + transport he is with.
- WWP is 35 points Archon/Succubus/Haemon can have it.
- Transport capacities are the same.
- No HQ can take a board or bike.
- Trueborn are still in & can take the same weapon combos from the last dex
- Mandrakes have stealth, shrouded + baleblast from the start. Baleblast is assault 2 St 4 Ap 4 Soulblaze
- Wyches have no haywire (other than Succubus) & dodge only in the fight subphase.
- Incubi can't get grenades..
- Clone Field is a 4+ Invun 40pts (Archon only)
- Venoms can take double Spl Cannon, but can only have Grisly Trophies and Chain Snares
- Only the Hekatrix, Succubus and Archon have access to HWG.
- Harlequins are not in the book (other than fluff).
Some additional RUMOURS (not confirmed):
- Urien is only 140 points.
- Each Grot can take a liquifier
