Arrrgghhhh! Now I haven't read the new CSM Codex yet but based on the GW website, Plague Marines and Khorne Berzerkers seem to be Elites now.
(I already have a squad of berzerkers painted up and one squad of plague marines waiting to be painted.)

What the ... am I right on this? If that is the case, if the only troops I have are the ones from the old Battleforce (I think for a total of 15) which can technically form 2 troop squads, are they realistically enough for a proper army?

Noob question I know ... cause I have not gamed before. Embarassed

it's like the old csm dex unlock them as troops if your lord is also of the same mark ae lord is a khorne follower you unlock berserkers as troops, rest maintained as elites.

As what Pax suggested, take a lord with Mark of Khorne or Mark of Nurgle, voila, they are troops again, or buff up another 5 mans to make it two ten man squad (for the sake of one more special weapon), Lord seems to be more reasonably priced in point for this edition... a decently kit out Daemon Prince is now costing a whooping 250 to 300 points... thats... more than a Land Raider.

From what I observe, normally folks oso take 2 troops only, and keep em cheap =___,= the remaining point all spend on killy heavy/elite/fast unit =p

but just to point out your lords mark unlocks only that marks elites as troops the rest still are elite... also you cant have 2 lords with 2 diff marks that make 2 diff mark elites as troops...

as the warlord mark is the one that will determined which elite unit it unlocks.
