Black Legion v3.5

Version 3.5 of the Black Legion list has been sent to Andy and Jervis at Fanatic. So look for it in the vault some time next week

The main change is that Summoning is now done from a central pool of daemons that are purchased at the beginning of the game. There is an upper limit to how many daemons an army can generate so if you get high dice rolls it just means that you go through your daemons quicker

This should also help to make it a tactical decision to decide whether to retain daemons or not. As well, daemons now return to the warp at the end of the turn unless you have a unit in the formation that has the Daemonic Focus ability. The CSM Icon Bearer has that ability (which should hopefully end those interminable arguments about the IB not being like its 40K counterpart) and units in the LatD army will also have the ability.

So you can still tool up a formation to summon and retain a lot of daemons but you won’t be able to do much else with it as that will take three upgrades, Daemonic P{act (which allows access to summoning), Chaos Champion and IB.
