Hi, can you use Storm of Chaos armies like cult of Slaanesh in the Nemesis Crown. If so do you need your opponents agreement?
I believe you need your opponents permission to use SOC in any battle.
From what I've heard, the SoC armies are now outdated, and are being phased out, to be longer available when a new Codex comes out.
eg, The Empire have a new book since SoC. You now cannot use the Cult of Ulric list. Annoying, I know. I was planning to use that list against my opp's Ld 5 Night Goblins.
That said though, if you have the rulebook, I don't see any reason why you couldn't use those lists if your opponent agrees to use them.
Hope this helps.
SoC is a 6th edition book, which will have no 7th edition equivelant.
Ditto with Lustria and all that AlbionWhatever (drawing a blank on that formal name) stuff as far as I know.
It is very much out for Nemesis Crown stuff.
As far as GW is concerned, it died as soon as 7th Ed hit the shelves, and they could say so without having total mutiny (because it's not THAT old of a book, barely in it's 3rd year). Which is pretty much appropriate. It isn't balanced around the new edition. While it's functional enough it still works pretty well, pretty well isn't fair to other players in tournaments... especially pay to play ones.
That being said while it is a no-no in GW formal stuff, most games stores and non-GW tournaments and the like are still allowing SoC this year because it is still so relatively new.
However by next year, like Lustria before it, it will likely be OppCon everywhere. It is after all NOT a 7th ed suppliment, it was designed, built, and balanced on 6th Ed rules. Much like Lustria and Albion before it and the armies and gear in them, most places will allow you to use them longer then GW, but only to a point.
On the plus side given how popular certain lists where (All Daemon, Eshin, etc) I wouldn't be surprised if in their 7th Ed. army books some version of them is reintroduced. Much like how at the start of 6th Ed. optional back lists weren't legal but, by the end, the optional lists in the books (like S. Lands in LMan) where made totally legal to play. The same with the internet lists whose status have always been in limbo (DE wathctower, Lman Sac Hosts, etc).
I expect, looking at what they tried to do at the end of 6th ed, that GW plans to take all those popular lists and tweak them as inserts in new army books in some way. After all the mroe ways to play an army the more people play it, and why get a guy to buy one army book when you can be sure to entice him with four or five.
