psychic powers: splitting book and codex?

Postby Cptn_Snuggles » Fri Nov 30, 2012 12:03 am

Can't find proof of either way. Can someone point out where it says you can or can't take one power from your codex and one from the rulebook? For instance on a blood angels librarian, can I keep my shield of sanguinius and roll once on divination?

Thanks,
BC

no splitting, the gw faq's say for example the eldar one...
"Psychic Powers
A Farseer (including Eldrad Ulthran) may use the psychic
disciplines found in the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook, instead of
those in Codex: Eldar. If he does so, for each psychic power he
has purchased from Codex: Eldar, generate a new power from
either the Divination or Telepathy discipline (in any
combination) before armies are deployed. Eldrad Ulthran
generates four new powers.

so it tells you you toss all book powers and get x number of new ones. so you can split new ones among disciplines but you can't have book and new powers together.

Brian,

You can't split its all or nothing so you either keep the ones you have or trade in for book ones.

The only army that can in a way split is Gray Knights because they always keep Hammerhand.

Thanks guys. Been playing mostly necrons since 6th was released so I'm not up to speed on psychic powers. I am working on a couple armies that combo off blood angels so I need to get my practice in!

Thanks,

Brian,

Just to throw a thought into your mind..... The meta is flyers and foot spam... well a blood talon dread with Prescience from Divination casted on it can literally kill a 50 man guard blob before it gets to strike..... (Big FAN!)

Isn't that harder to do than initially thought. Prescience is cast at the beginning of the turn and the Dread needs to disembark from the Stormraven so can't be targeted by psychic powers. What I'm trying to say is the dread needs to be exposed on the ground for one turn before he can get Prescience and a charge off.

No Fred, I am pretty sure you can cast Psychic powers on embarked units if you are also embarked on the same vehicle.

So as long as the libby is in the raven with the dread its GAME ON!

Unless I am missing something here?

Check out Page 67 of the RB top right Paragraph.
