The new codex is coming soon and WarCom has given us several features on why the new codex will be great. No rules with the exception that most models will get additional attacks. Personally I think this bodes well for Craftworld rather than Drukhari, but hey.
Was really hoping for more than this, like a couple rules. Will this codex be a big let down? I don't see the attack profile making the big difference for this book.
The dreaded Drukhari blast back into realspace later this month with a new codex, which features new ways for them to terrorise their enemies. Here are a few of our favourites.
1. Better, Harder, Faster
We’ve already seen that Kabalite Warriors are getting better in the new codex. It’s not just the Kabals that are improving, though – most units in the army are getting an extra Attack. So whether you like to field Wyches, Hellions, or even a Cronos, you’ll be dishing out even more pain.
Okay, “friendly” isn’t a word that we usually associate with the Drukhari, but the new codex makes it easier than ever to mix Wych Cults, Kabals, and Haemonculus Covens without spending all of your Command points. Now you can build the realspace raiding party of your dreams (or should that be nightmares?).
3. Brush Up on Your Background
The lore in the codex not only features classic tales of the birth of the Drukhari, the rise of Vect, and the twisted port of Commorragh, it also brings them right up to date with a look at War Zone: Gaban. No spoilers here, but let’s just say that things aren’t looking good for the Adeptus Mechanicus.*
4. Rule the Dark City
As with all of the new codexes for Warhammer 40,000, the Drukhari one will feature a suite of new Crusade rules. Using the spoils you gain from your raids, you can claim new territories within Commorragh, from weapon forges to Incubi shrines to trading districts. Each one will help your army to grow and will spread your influence – can you rise up to challenge Vect as the master of Commorragh? Would you be fool enough to do so?
5. Terror Tactics
Alongside the pick of those from the current Drukhari codex, the new codex features a whole host of new Stratagems. So, whether you want to dominate the skies with Razorwing Fighters or unleash shambling hordes of Wracks, you’ll find the perfect Stratagem to make them even better. Your enemies will be praying that you don’t take them alive before you know it.
