Sorry Calvern, missed that post.
Edit: in future maybe don't post wishes for things in 8th if you don't even know if they are in 7th already.

I think some people might not quite get the idea behind these new FoCs. I doubt you can take multiples of them. Need more flyers, the answer isn't take 2 patrol FoCs, no the only answer available will be take one of the bigger FoCs and pay the bigger minimum cost. This is how they balance the game, This was how 5th handled things, I think this is how 8th will as well. I for one look forward to it.


Easier access to more unit types wasn't the most broken aspect of formations, it was the highly varied return on special rules for the same investment. For example:
Tyranids: spend ~1000pts and have it all turn up from reserve on the same turn (with no bonus to the roll)
Marines: spend ~1000pts, get +500pts free!

I'm sure you'll be able to take multiples of the new detachments, but I expect the balancing factor will be the much better bonuses you receive for focusing on larger generic ones. I have no doubt there will be a detachment that lets you field extra flyers or lots of Elites, but you're not going to be getting +9 command points for taking them like you will with a generic Brigade. In turn those command points can be used to level the field (such as re-rolling tricky To Hit rolls on flyers). I'm feeling confident this system will leave us in a much better place than 7E while still being flexible enough for everyone's existing armies.


Well since there are designing this FoC setup so that tournaments can use it as a limiter, I can totally see some tournaments saying things like. 2kpt Battalion Detachment Tournament.

(New) infos from the GW responses on Facebook to comments related to the last rule preview:

Q: Will there be faction-exclusive detachments in addition to the general ones, though?
A:Hey Yannik- well, we haven't seen any yet if there are. That would be pretty cool, though!

Q:Currently focused on building a Night Lords detachment using the Raptor Talon formation and a formation of Fallen.
A: Hey Schuyler - you will absolutely be able to use your army, all is good. The Chaos Marines and Fallen will have rules on release, so you can happily use your force. (Also Knights still in).

A: Hey Anon; There will be a Cult focus article on the way soon, so hold out for that!

A: Ha! We love memes! But we cannot leak stuff before it's announced... kinda the point of announcements! Good try, though...

A: Hey Alex- no need to worry at all. You will 100% be able to use your Custodes in the new edition.

A:Hey Mindy - remember, these are just 3 of the 9 detachments, so it doesn't 'mean' anything! Suffice to say, you will 100% be able to use your Harlequin army in the new edition.

A:Will, it's all good dude - Deathwing armies are very much a thing and totally playable.

A: Turn that frown upside down, John.... Dark Eldar are soul-stealing murderous gits in the new edition... trust us!

Q: Do you still pay for dedicated transports or is it free? Not clear in the article.
A: Hey Mark; This is all about the organisation of the unit, not about points as such. No points are mentioned anywhere here, so it's safe to assume you pay points for things if you are in a matched play game.

A: Guys, it's all good- we are not about to take to take away models or not let you use your armies. We can 100% guaruntee you can use any models you can use now in the new edition.

Q: What happens with armies with no HQ? (Harlequins)
A: Hey Carlos - well, we haven't got that information yet... but you will definitely be able to use a pure Harlequins army in the new rules.

A: There are 12 game-wide detachments in the new rules. If there are any more, we haven't seen anything about them yet...


Also focus previews for all the factions coming it seems.
Have to say that the GW Facebook guy is pretty good at reacting to questions, went through at least 50 responses.

Also Foley confirmed on twitter that there's only 12 detachement charts in the beginning, not 14.

Make up your mind intern .
Yes I know they probably meant "we've seen 3, there's 9 unspoiled".

So now we have a game dev saying 14 and a doubling/tripling down on 12. I wonder which is correct...

EDIT: Ah, so Pete must have made a mistake in the Q&A or 2 have been removed since then.

Pete is the head of the rules department, so his number is going to be correct.

Really how well it works depends on how well they structure the units. Either the game is fun if one side has 20 tanks or it isn't, and if it isn't they should block that option outside of pre agreed play. If you can get troop choices for 50 points and Lords of War/tank squadrons at 800 points both for a single "slot" in each case then it is a pointless exercise in any case. I do like that they have split off transports - hopefully that means less scoring weirdness.

Faction focus articles? This just made my day!

I am happy to see formations go, but I'm wondering if some of their elements could be retained within the dataslates of the units (and appropriately pointed too). Like, will a space marine landspeeder be able to nominate one enemy unit within 18" and los to be the target of a more accurate whirlwind strike? The keyword system is perfect for things like this.

They'll have the 3 different play styles that Age of Sigmar has,. so you could do a narrative or Open play game against someone willing to submit themselves to a beat of that type. Matched play will have specifics rules to prevent potential lopsided games. I.E. points and FoCs

I loved the new space marine chapter traits and rules for Raven Guard that came with 6th and 7th ed, and I've been converting models to use the raven guard relics.

I won't be happy if all that is gone.

They'll have 16 faction previews at least and if they really need more time they could even do one for every tiny faction with a Codex (e.g. Scions or Skitarii), which would easily give them... 23 days or something? I mean the loyalist Space Marine chapters with their own codex (not even counting GKs or DW) alone would be 5 days.

I have to admit I'm really concerned that GW isn't calling this 8th edition.

GW calls it "'New' 40K". Fact!




I thought of another 'new' branding tag that was a total blunder...

Anyone remember "The New iPad"? It stuck around for all of 3 months before Apple had to can it (no pun intended, but that kinda funny).

Wizards of the Coast did much the same thing with Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition. None of the books explicitly have 5th edition on the front cover (the back cover does have fifth edition stated, but not as a proper noun). During development they called it D&D Next or just Next. GW seems to be taking a page out of their book.
