So basically you need the three battlelines on the field at the start of the match? That basically makes useless few abilities for certain units...

Edited: right reading better it’s basically only for summoning but not for reserves, so it’s not that game changer...

Its not huge in the old battleplans. But now tzeentch for example summoning battleline units and getting bonus points for them being battleline would make summoning more powerful. 
luckily this faq prevents that.

Made my point very badly.

The opposite right? Now Tzeentch does not do that anymore. Well everyone needs a minimum of roles to start with and to remove the extra advantage provided by summoning extra stuff seems fair. Death is not impacted as they usually re-setup the same unit destroyed.

Also we are talking about extra points, summoning a unit on an abandoned objective already gives you the objective.

But dont some new plans say objectives are held by battleline or leader?  So a summoned unit cant score the objective as it loses the battleline/leader designation.

Only The better part of valour and Places of arcane power. The others give only extra points. In both cases is the first one to arrive that counts so you physically need to be in range and destroy the first unit to change ownership. In that case summoned units would take two turns to overtake those objectives (unless they can charge 9+ and destroy on the turn they are summoned).

Are we sure about that?  In the Auxiliary Objectives section (p 108) under Unit Types and Point Values it states that the type of unit is listed in its Pitched Battle Profile, so I would think that summoned leaders are still leaders and summoned battlelines are still battleline.

Are the orcs new?

I don't think so. I think there are Orcs, Goblins and  a Troll, but all of them are the existing (and still really nice!) BB versions.

Soulblight(could be vampirates)/flesh-eater courts in the same vein as the underworlds warband.

The Grymwatch halberd is a good deal less ornate, though they do both show a similar pitting. And it's vaguely gothic looking alright, fancy but damaged.

Not crude or glaive-like enough to be skaven. Not quite like elves, or at least not like the halberd designs we've seen on their darker variants. The Black Guard halberds do have a sort of studded sleeve coming down below the halberd's head, like this. But then so does the lance wielded by the vampire atop the zombie dragon, as below:

I think this is a soulblight weapon.

😂, that would be great.

But A Skryre heavy (no fiends) band or anything Eshin Related,  might be a bigger seller then Stormvermins
