Guest Posted September 16, 2014 Report Share Posted September 16, 2014 A bit confused on the book's explanation of factions on page 118. It's pretty clear no more than 1 faction per detachment, but I'm having trouble getting a clear list of the factions, or just a clear definition of the faction concept. It does seem to hint that newer publications will be more clear on the faction concept, but that doesn't help me much. There is even a list of symbols with codex names on page 118, and no caption or reference in the paragraph to conclude if it's a pretty picture or if that's supposed to be the list of factions... In particular, I'm looking to see if I need an IG detachment to include my baneblade in normal play. As I read it, IG are no longer a faction, and this isn't addressed in the escalation supplement or it's FAQ. My MT, on the other hand, remain unclear if they are a faction of their own, or a secondary codex for the AM's faction. The allies section (page 126) seems to attempt to convey the information that should be defined in the faction rules, but seems to imply this is only the faction as it relates to allies. Use of a baneblade within the same detachment doesn't really apply to the ally rules, because the baneblade's inclusion is part of the same CAD. It goes on to further confuse things, by suggesting and then contradicting itself, that all the armies of the imperium are a single faction. I don't own the current AM codex and the IG codex isn't in use at present. I do own a bane blade and have a MT army. I also have a SM/DA army. Can this be my lord of war for a CAD of one of these armies? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
