I've been thinking about starting a CoS army but have been deterred lately when hearing that they will be made illegal/unofficial. I don't want to start a CoS army if they're going to be banned a few months down the road. Has it been confirmed that the list will be banned or is that more speculation?
It's been illegal for ages unless i'm greatly mistaken.
Although it depends on the local tournament rules obviously. Where i used to play, people were fine with it being used in campaigns
It was banned in UK GW tournaments - although other independent events may have done the same. It varies.
The new DE book is likely to be out in 18 months or so, and I don't expect the Cult to survive. I say that because the armies that have had a book since SoC (Dwarfs, O&G - we'll have to see about empire & middenheim list) didn't allow you to field an army similar to the SoC lists, although they did loosen the restrictions on slayers/black orcs.
But since the CoS also relies on stuff from Hordes of Chaos, going against GW's current doctrine of "one book for one army" it seems doubly unlikely that it will survive in anything other than the warhammer background.
You could put whatever units you create to good use in a normal DE army when the time comes, of course. But you could tell back then these lists were aimed at selling models that people would only buy a unit (maybe two) of. In the case of CoS it hooks you into DE and Chaos at the same time...
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Can anyone give a link to where it says this officially? as in, in writing by GW.
Im not too fussed about CoS being illegal. Unless it means you cant even use the items like heartstone of darkness etc..?

Unfortunately i think it does include the CoS armouryUnless it means you cant even use the items like heartstone of darkness etc..?
(Wait, why am i sad? I don't play CoS or DE:tongue
Wow, that really sucks. There are so many useful items in their armoury. Wand of Kharaidon, Heart-stone of Darkness, Draich of Dark Power is pretty good, heck even the Cloak of Shadow or whatever its called is pretty useful.
Hmm.. Is it official that all those items are gone as well? because it states that those items can be used in non SOC lists. Also did they mention about putting those items in the future dark elf book?
If they are cutting those items out it may be time to retire the dark elves haha.. I always used the wand and the heartstone.
The Cult of Slaanesh Rules are LEGAL for 2007 US Grand Tournaments. So there is still some hope =)
I am just getting into fantasy, hoping to do a CoS army (army list posted btw), and if at some point the list is no longer legal then I will just start making a Standard Dark Elf amy with Chaos as second army.
