Default Craftworlds banned, what about Marks of Chaos?

if Craftworlds are banned, shouldn't Marks of Chaos be banned also, as they are essentially the same thing...

I don't know about you but I've never seen an Eldar Farseer with "Mark of Alaitoc".

The Craftworld codex isn't banned. It's just not legal for using in Grand tourneys in the UK.

However in October/November the new Eldar Codex comes out and it will be fully customizable allowing you to play as any craftworld you'd like.

what I meant was, the Mark of Chaos gives the chaos player extra options and limitations when building his/her army, and so does choosing a Craftworld for Eldar, so why aren't Marks of Chaos illegal in the Uk Grand tourney?

Because they're in one big codex, not using a small badly written sub codex.

It's been a while and they do need an update, but there are plenty of armies such as the orcs and Eldar who needed a codex update a lot more.

As for the Eye of Terror and the Armagedon codexes. The army lists from those codexes are not necessarily balanced. Like falstead said the campaign codexes aren't the best written and the armies aren't completely balanced. In addition with the Eldar codex coming out they are probably trying to solidify the armies into one book and get people to stop using the variations.

If anything they will probably make the Eldar more like Space marines or Imperial guards with certain doctrines, advantages, and flaws to allow greater customization. Or make it like the chaos book with each craftworld getting a small section and army options.

Also there is a huge difference between different craftworlds and the 4 gods of chaos.

Each of the 4 armies are extremely different, i.e. difference between Thousand sons and World Eaters. There is no similarity whatsoever between taking out the craftworlds (and the Speed Freaks, 13th Company, and Lost And The Damned) and removing the 4 gods of chaos's armies.

Without the 4 gods then Chaos loses most of its psychic powers and any real difference between them and space marines.

The new Eldar book will have rules for the various craftworlds. Apparently they will be even more heavily themed than before.

This is according to Phil Kelly @ Gamesday Toronto.

They basically alienated half the ork population at the same time. About half of all ork players used the speed freak list and more like 75% in competitive settings. Dont expect to see a SINGLE ork player at the next UK GT or a heat or anything
