Hey all, I did a search but couldn't spot this, apologies if I'm being dense.

on Pg. 27 of my Eldar Codex when explaining the rules for Warlocks, under Warlock Powers it states each Warlock must be given a power. This makes sense, not much of a Warlock if you don't have any power.

Then, on Pg. 60 in the army list for Warlocks it says each Warlock may buy one of the powers at whatever cost.

So at one point it says they must have a power, then it contradicts itself by using may and implying we don't have to buy one. Is this an oversight, and a Warlock must have a power? Personally, that's how I'd go with it, but I can imagine if you're trying to skimp on points you can try to leave some Warlocks in your Seer Council power-less?

I've just looked at P.27 and P.60 of my copy of the Codex Eldar and the word "may" is used on both occasions. I wonder: is your copy a second printing/edition? Mine was purchased on the day of release in 2006. If you open your copy and check the page where all the credits, index and so forth are shown, does it say "Second Edition" or "Second Printing" anywhere below the "Produced by Games Workshop" sentence? If so, then this could explain why there is a difference between your copy and mine.

Farseers have a "must" in both entries, but it would seem that it is not obligatory for you to buy a psychic power for a Warlock, since the word "may" is used.

As you say though - why on earth would you take a Warlock and not give him a psychic power?

Witchblade.

Makes the unit handy against tanks. But you're right, even just taking embolden shouldn't stretch the budget.

Yeah, mine says 'must' on page 27 and 'may' on page 60 too. So I dunno. 25 points for a naked warlock sounds pretty appealing to me though.

It looks as if the later printings have changed the P.27 "may" to "must". I wonder - did they forget to update P.60 from 'may' to 'must' as well?
