I was wondering how I could still play Night Lords like the old codex (the one out right now) with the new codex coming out. I guess there will be no more Stealth Adept or extra fast attack. My army was almost complete as far as painting it when I hered the news about the new codex. The new codex sounds like it will be pretty good but it sounds like I will not have anything in there about the Night Lords. My army was going to be around 1850 points and would have a Daemon P, LT on bike, 6 man bike squad, 6 to 7 man raptor squad, Two 10 man Furies squad, two small 6 to 8 man marine squad with las C and Plasma Gun, 2 man obliterator squad and depending on the points and what I give everbody wargear wise maybe a H/B dread or H/B sponson and Twin Las C turret Pred.
Can anybody tell me If I can still do this with the new codex and its estimated/Guestimated rules?
you should be able to do everything there, aside from the furies, daemons in the new codex will all be generic as a daemon codex will be out some time next year. I'm not sure if they will have fast generic daemons like furies in it :/. But you could use the furies as generic daemons if you want to use the models.
There are no longer special legion specific rules for the Night Lords. You will now have to pay for night vision. Don't know about you but my Night Lords won't have better sight in the dark. You can still make the list as you wish just theres no more restriction on marks and deamons.

Hey,This could be a problem. The new Dex may prohibit HWs in undersize squads.two small 6 to 8 man marine squad with las C and Plasma Gun
I believe every tenth Marine will be allowed a HW or a 2nd AW.Up to nine is said to soon be legal in every Chaos force. Go Gav!2 man obliterator squadAs long as you just mean Fists, Powerswords and Plaspistols.give everbody wargear
Only HQs will have any wargear as we think of it now.Preds are still in, but beware -Pred
Points costs are being changed, so be prepared to reshuffle a bit.
Looks like you'll be all right, though.
Hey there Tommy.
You'll probably want MORE raptors, as they're becoming cheaper and easier to field.
Don't afraid to get some icons in there, so you can enjoy stuff like extra attacks, or invulnerable saves or what not on your raptors.. this is, of course, if raptors CAN be marked.
Furies will be used as generic daemons I guess. They can be summoned from anywhere with an icon and apparently they don't take up places in the FOC.
Also, predators annihilators are rocketing up in price. I think the triple lascannon annihilator will be over 160 points. Destructor predators, are getting a price decrease however, with the 'dakka' predator dropping below 100 points.
Thanks for the help. It looks like everything is still good with the Night Lords except Stealth Adept. I will have to wait and see about what I can do with my Night Lords when the new codex comes out. Till then I'll finish painting and save my deamon Furies until the daemon codex comes out.
Good man Tommy.
Well, just bear in mind that we're all in the same boat.
GW will always change their codexes... it's not the first time and it's not the last time.
OK, just to stop the forums from getting this messy, I'm gonna close this thread now.. If you have anymore questions, please don't hesistate to ask on the ZOMG stickied thread
