Necron Codex: The Decurion Detachment Rules!


The introduction of a new type of Detachment has brought up many questions, and is the first bit of information from the Necron Codex that is due for release next week. This opens up a lot of new options, and of course comes with its own restrictions. The biggest advantage here is that the Decurion Detachment is a Battle-Forged army composition, not unbound.


Please remember that these leaks are early information and must be considered rumors until we get an official release. The source on this exceptional.

If you need a reminder of what the detachment is, here is a link.

I have the codex, and I know the new decurion detachment has been a hot issue. Here are the rules for it straight from the codex.

-The Decurion Detachment is a special type of detachment that can be included in any battle-forged army

-Units cannot normally belong to more than one detachment, units from a formation that is part of a Decurion Detachment are an exeption and are both part of their formation and the detachment with both command benefits and special rules

-If the Warlord is a part of a Decurion Detachment, that entire Decurion Detachment is your primary detachment

-You can take Combined Arms and Allied Detachments and/or Decurion Detachments for Battle-Forged Armies

  2. So question....are we forced to take the Decurion Detachment now, or is it simply something that is optional? In addition if we are forced to take it does that mean we MUST field tomb blades for every battle forged army? OR is the Decurion Detachment something we can take in addition to our battle forged army? Please and thank you!

    1. lol, sorry I think I forgot to paste that section into the article. Doing so now.

      The answer is no, you can take a standard detachment like in the main rulebook.

    2. I believe all special, detachments in codices are optional (like the 6 Fast Attack Dark Eldar one). I think you can still use the standard FOC as found in the rulebook if you want ObSec and Warlord Trait re-rolls, just that stuff like the Decurion detachment is an alternative way to build a list, if you choose to use it.

      At least, I think that's how it works!

  4. I heard you liked space marines inside your space marines so now we're giving you formations inside your formations!

    1. Nah, the standard FOC is still there. You can use that instead.

  6. are you able to repeat the same auxiliary option up to 10 times or just one per decurion formation? ... and does the detachment provide any specific special rule, or at least OS?

  7. , ive struggled to come up with anything that could cover all of the flavours of CSM. How can you cover legions, legion warbands, renegades of the 31st/35th/ 41st millennium without resorting to 6-10 supplements? But I think gw may have sussed it with there 'decurian detachment' for necrons. Imagine one of those to cover each legion and specific ones for renegade detachments (eg. 21st founding list). The unlocks could be that if you take a slaanesh themed detachment as an example, your army benefit from +1I and acsess to noise weaponary. Or a recent renegade detachment would have access to codex space marine wargear in limited numbers. Obviously I don't have all the answers but it looks a way to be able to keep everything in one book

    1. It's not happening. Play 30k if you want special chaos armies. Seriously they have decent special rules, unique units, powerful allies, etc why do you want them dumbed down just to pick up chapter tactics like furious charge and hatred (world eaters) or stealth and infiltrate on non-jump pack (night lords).

    2. Well no that's not what I was getting at. People want options they want to pay legions. Play 30k is not really an option for most. What I was proposing was to give people the option to play CSM in a fluffy way or to play the standard FOC. I think it could go further than 'dumbed down' USRs by giving different weapon loadouts and units available.
