Warhammer 40,000 Khorne Daemonkin Formations Preview


The main feature of the Khorne Daemonkin formations is that they follow the same new format of the Necron Decurion where you pick a core formation and add supllementary formations instead of using the tradition Combined Arms Detachment.

WS4 BS4 S6 T5 W2 I2 A3 Ld10 Sv.3+

Fearless, Rending, Very Bulky

Wraith Form: Canptek Wraiths have 3+ Invuln. Save

Wraithflight: When moving, Canoptek Wraiths can move over all other models and terrain as if they were open ground. However, they cannot end their move on top of other models and can only end their move on top of impassable terrain if it is possible to actually place the models on top of it.

May include up to three additional Canoptek Wraiths

Warhammer 40K 7th Edition Necron Codex leaks: Destroyer Cult

Destroyer Cult
1 Destroyer Lord
3 units of destroyers
0-1 units of heavy destroyers

Special Rules: Move through cover
If this formation is your primary detachment, can re-roll for Warlord Traits.
Units in this formation re-roll failed to wound and armour penetration rolls

Note that Heavy Destroyers are no longer an upgrade to a Destroyer unit, and are a unit of their own.

Warhammer 40K 7th Edition Necron Codex leaks: Ghost Ark


BS 4 F 11 S 11 R 11 HP 4 Vehicle (Skimmer, Open-topped, Transport)


Two Gauss Flayer Arrays (pg113)

Quantum Shielding (pg115)


Transport Capacity: 10 models. It can only carry Necron Warriors and Necron Characters with the infantry unit type.

Repair Barge:  At the start of each friendly Movement phase this model can repair fallen Necron Warrios. To do so, nominate a firendly unit of Necron Warriors that is either within 6” of this model or embarked on it, and roll a D3. Add a number of Necron Warriors tot he unit equal to the result – this cannot take the unit beyond it starting size nor, if it is currently embarked in the Ghost ark, beyond the vehicle’s transport capacity (any excess are destroyred). These Necron Warriors must be placed within 6” of the Ghost Ark, or if the unit is currently embarked in the Ghost Ark, within it. If the model cannot be placed for any reason, it is destroyed. Necron Warriors repaired iin this manner can move and act normally this turn.

Th special magic, where GW screwed up, is that Warriors now have a minium squad size of 10 models, not 5 like in previus edition. So no more transporting a Warriors Squad with a Cryptek, at least not until it’s taken some casualties.

Warhammer 40K 7th Edition Necron Codex leaks: Canoptek Harvest

The Canoptek Harvest is a new formation that can be used on it’s own, or part of the new Necron Decurion Detachment , made up of other detachments (see page 17 of White Dwarf 52, or wait for the codex)

Canoptek Harvest 
1 Canoptek Spyder
1 unit of Canoptek Wraiths
1 unit of Canoptek Scarabs

Special Rules:

Move Through Cover, Relentless

At start of Movement phase, can gain Fleet, Reanimation Protocols, or Shred. Spyder and all formation units within 12″ gain those special rules until your next movement phase.
