Sword Brethren Detachment:
It affects High Marshal Helbrecht, The Emperor's Champion, Captains, Company Champion, and Company Veterans for 1 CP.
A new Warlord Trait -- Master swordsman -- Gives your Warlord +1 attack and every unmodified roll to hit of 6 becomes 2 hits instead.
A new BT specific Relic -- The Holy Orb of Antioch -- 6" range. For every 10 models in the unit, roll a D6. On a 2+ they suffer D3 mortal wounds.
Uphold the Honor of the Emperor (1CP) -- Gives a select Sword Brethren unit in this detachment a 5+ FNP roll in the fight phase.
Suffer not the Unclean to Live (2CP) -- Give a select Sword Brethren unit +1 attack and re-roll to wounds.
Indomitus Crusader Detachment:
1 CP: Liberators
Use this Strategem at the start of the Fight phase. Pick an INDOMITUS CRUSADER unit from your army. Until the start of your next turn, each time you roll an unmodified hit roll of 6 for an attack made by a model in this unit, that attack inflicts 2 hits on the target instead of 1.
1 CP: Veteran Intercessors
Use this Strategem before the battle begins. Pick an INDOMITUS CRUSADER INTERCESSOR SQUAD from your army to be Veteran Intercessors. That unit gains the VETERAN keyword for the duration of the battle. In addition, add 1 to the Attacks and Leadership characteristics of that unit for the duration of the battle.
1 CP: Target Sighted
Use this Strategem at the start of your Shooting phase. Pick a VETERAN INTERCESSORS unit from your army. Until the end of the phase, stalker bolt rifles that models in that unit are armed with gain the following ability "Their weapons can target a CHARACTER even if it is not the closest enemy unit. If you roll a wound roll of 6+ for their weapons, it inflicts a mortal wound in addition to its normal damage"
1 CP: Bolt Storm
Use this Strategem at the start of your Shooting Phase. Pick a VETERAN INTERCESSORS unit from your army. Until the end of the phase, [auto?] bolt rifles that models in that unit are armed with gain the following ability "When this weapon targets an enemy unit within half range, it automatically hits its target"

So, as you can see, there is a mixture of new rules for the BT and overall point drops. Definitely thrusts new strategies square into the fore-front of army building. New lists for the first time a long time and I am thrilled to start digging deeply into these new rules! Over the coarse of the next couple days, I'll dig deeper into what these rules potentially mean to us and how we can use them on the board. :D
