FTN Episode 378 – Will Codex Drukhari Change The Game? Codex Review Part 2

FTN small square

We dive deeper into Codex Drukhar this week exploring many of the changes and new things possible from the new codex.  There is a lot that’s different.  Squad sizer requirements might be a big deal.  We think the book has a lot of teeth but it won’t be easy to use.

Hey folks,

The codex is a scalpel.  You won’t be able to clumsily slog through a game with two big blobs of Grotesques in this book.  The Dark Eldar are back to be super sleep and super deadly but in my opinion you’ll need a lot of practice to find the right combos and mix of each unit on the table top.

I honestly feel like this is what the game ‘should be’ anyway and the core of my opinion is that the Drukhari have lot of tools.  When the game changes around them they will be able to hang in there an adapt right out of this codex.

We’ll end up seeing more vehicles on the table out of this army than we’ve seen in a while.  Long time players may be able to take their Venoms right off the shelf and put them on the table.  This is a very similar thing Craftworld players have been able to do with their Wave Serpents.

We kick the show off with a Hobby Segment once again talking about when and how to seal your models.  If you don’t do it yet.. do it!

The key is finding a method that you can work into your hobby routine or is the best for your average climate.  I know I’ve got a squad I’ve been waiting to seal until Spring.  HA!

For anyone who has read this far down we’ve recorded the first video with myself and Oscar Lars where we review a listener submitted model. It should be produced and ready to go mid November. Please keep checking back and if you have a model you’d like us to review for how it would stack up vs the Battle Ready standard and the Artists Standard, hit us up in a private message with a pic. This is coming soon- I promise!
