If the article is accurate (yes, a bit of a big ask for a Warhammer Community article), Daemonic Loci only work with units in your detachment, not just any Daemon unit for the proper Chaos God.

It's 6" from a unit with the locus, and units in the detachment get the locus, so should apply outside of the detachment, maybe not if only characters get the loci.

New art on the cover would have been nice.

Loci will definitely be a character ability IMO as they've always been so and it makes no sense to give every unit an aura.

Why Aye Ya Canny Dakkanaughts!

For things such as "affect every Khorne Daemon within 6"", can the Khorne and Daemon keywords be mixed across both 'faction keywords' and 'keywords'? Or, like on regular daemons, do the keywords both have to be under 'faction keywords'?

That really depends on wording. If the key word(s) in question are identical then yeah, it'll work unless specifically disallowed. They could always do something sneaky, like make the Codex Demon keyword <Khorne Demon> instead of <Khorne>, <Demon>. For me, it falls into the same boat as "friendly model" in stratagems and abilities. Provided they account for synergy, there's no reason why some of the abilities shouldn't overlap given that the armies themselves overlap.

I think we'll see some interaction with the auras. It would be a real missed opportunity if they didn't and it feels like they want CSM and Deamons to be bosom buddies this edition.

Well it affects Daemon Princes and Daemon Vehicles, so it's not like there is total cross-compatibility. I know having the overlap works well on the AoS side but not sure how analogous that is to 40k.

I think it will be more like:
"Due to Slaanesh getting a BIG release of their own in the future, we've left them out of the Daemon Codex so they can get a codex all of their own! Isn't that great? What's that? Why yes, Codex Slaanesh will be the same price as all the other codices."

Well, mostly complete. Khorne still needs new dogs and a couple other holes filled (especially in the hero/HQ area). And those other Horrors could show up as actual kits, rather than a model or two in unrelated boxes.

Not even 3 - Khorne still has Finecast Hounds, though at least they have plastic alternatives from other GW ranges that somewhat work.

The most inspiring this of this new Nurgle release is that they are redoing old kits.

Thats surely confirms Plastic Aspect Warriors in the future. Amirite?

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Of course, with all new extreme sculpts! Striking scorpions with scorpion tails, howling banshees with modeled sound waves coming out of their mouths, swooping hawks with feathers and claws, warp spiders with eight limbs... it'll be great!

Honestly Slaanesh isn't too bad. Infantry, Cavalry, thee Chariot builds gives them a decent base to work off. It's the lack of a Greater Daemon and Fiends update that really sets them back. Something Nurgle also suffered from until next week.

Slaanesh in 40k is just dark eldar wytch cult -1 at this point. They need a drastic revamping more than anyone in the setting. Diva hair heralds. Daemonette squad cheerleaders. Reindeer scorpions. A lawn mower. And Yosh the Dino rider Seekers.The outdated goat face and bondage tentacle Greater Daemon is the only model I actually still like at this point.

Replacing the finecast GUO and Beast isn't really the same kind of thing.

Well would be similar to redoing the finecast aspects.

Sure! They will be released immediately after Phil Kelly will stop giving them utterly broken rules and making best 3 eldar units criminally undercosted!

Hint - it will happen somewhere after 2054, a decade after all other ranges moved to holographic minibase-projectors. When Kelly will finally retire after writing Tau book about Farsight killing the Chaos Gods with his trusty fusion-megadupernihilator, developed in mere months by Earth caste primarch-defector Vulkan, which is frankly I kinda expect to see soon given the "quality" of his Tau books

We all know that the only thing that is more important than money to GW is being politically correct (yes they have a lot in common with dakka dakka). GW have already started the procedures to abort the fetus known as Slaanesh from their new happy go lucky paradise universe. The appearance of units from the god of excess in this codex is most likely Slaanesh's last breath and before long his cold body will be rotting in GW's mortuary.

I’m really hoping we see a character greater demon for Slaanesh in the codex. I always thought that was the crappiest thing that they didn’t get one when they became their own army between 4th/5th ed. Zarakynell (the forgeworld one) is great, but I’m hoping, like the GUO, a KoS plastic kit supports a special character, and a couple of basic alt builds.

Also, I REALLY hope a new kit has a bovine head option. The2nd ed model’s gazelleish head was kind of weird (and not in a good Slaaneshy way). But the old RoC figure with the SIX different cow heads, is one of my favorite GW figures of all time! It’s actually the first GW figure I ever bought, back in like 1990. Once eBay was in full swing, I tracked down all six variants, and now they’re used as my fiends (as they’re too small to be KoS (though legally they could be!!!!

That's silly of them. Slaanesh is probably the most politically correct of all the gods. Men, women, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transvestite, hermaphrodite... Slaanesh doesn't just accept but actively welcomes all of these.

Really, Slaanesh is the only faction in the entire model line that has hermaphrodite models in it, and the only one of the chaos gods that's (sometimes) referred to as female in an otherwise sausage-filled pantheon.

People really need to get over Slaanesh being removed or recast as something else. Slaanesh is going nowhere. This has been stated by the design team multiple time since AOS was released. Slaanesh does not need to be made kid friendly. With the exception of the FW KOS they are already toned toned down and covered up. Besides which GW is still making models with exposed breasts such as: the Medusa, Drycha, and some of the Spirit Revenants. The GUO even had nipples! Slaanesh's themes may be expanded but they certainlying aren't changing the excess or debauchery. The fluff is just as hardcore as has always been implied even in the new AOS stories. They are not going to retrocon the Eldar's Fall, or its fallout. The old models for Slaanesh's and the other gods are going to be in this new codex the same as the last two. They'll use photos of the currently available models like always. The KOS will likely keep its current statline until it gets a new model. Whatever they do with the KOS, Fiends, or new models for Slaanesh you can bank on them being inline with the aesthetics of the current Daemonettes design. Love it or hate it people that take on them is here to stay. There won't be new daemonettes since the current ones are exactly what GW envisioned them to be.

So, 22 Psychic Powers covering the Tzeentch, Nurgle, Slaanesh, the Dark Hereticus disciplines and Smite. So, Slaanesh is definitely in their as expected. If they include all 9 Dark Hereticus powers that leaves 1 more power per god which are probably also the same 3 from the CSM Codex. Not that I'm complaining...

The datacard section also says, "usable by all Daemons like Daemonic Incursion". So, while don't know exactly what that does, it seems highly likely that Daemons are getting some kind of deployment stratagem like we all hoped for.

Yeah. And the left arm is going to be really difficult to repose since the rest of the body is sculpted around it. The right arm & head tentacles should be easy to adjust at least, so it isn't all bad on the posing.
