Any codex that is released up to and including Saturday the 7th of October (the last Saturday release before the event) MAY be played. This is optional; any player may choose to play with index forces instead. HOWEVER, a player must select either index or codex to play from and cannot mix and match. For example, index Space Marine players will not be allowed to use the Space Marine stratagems or chapter tactics presented in the new codex.
Players MAY use both index and codex for forces in their army as long as they are not part of the same faction. For example, a Codex Space Marines player may also bring index Astra Militarum in their detachment.
Official GW FAQs released up to and including Saturday the 7th of October will be used in the event.

Can Forge World units be taken using the Forge World indices?
Does 'no under-strength units' mean you have to buy models in the groups listed for power levels, or just that it must be above the minimum? For example, could you take an 8 man space marine tactical squad, or would it have to be 5 or 10 marines?
Ulfilas: Yes, you may take forge world units as long as they fit within the specified detachment (no Lords of War and so forth), and you have the necessary keyword shared throughout your army (Imperium, for instance). For the under-strength restrictions, this simply means you may not have fewer models in a unit then what the index (or codex) specifies as the minimum unit size. This has not restriction on any models over the minimum size, so you can take 8 tactical marines. Hope this helps!
Hey Roland: To what do you mean? As in regards to any feedback we got from running this at Tacticon? Then no, it is the same style tournament. Except this time, the new Astra Militarum can be taken, as they came out on the 7th, which was the cutoff date. We shall see what this means for the meta. If it is something else, let me know and I will do my best to answer!
Hey Wolves: As it was pointed out to me, I don't have a WYSIWYG requirement, but Mortarion is a demon prince so a small demotion to him is fine with this imperial player. I would prefer it if possible if you choose weapons that somewhat resemble what the model has, but you would have to be the one who polices that since I am not familiar with what a standard demon prince can take. Also, please make sure that your opponent knows he will be played as a counts-as model.
