Woo.. chaos dread drop in points, now all we need is aspiring sorcerors to be psychic mastery 2 and noise marines to have a choose to replace with CCWs option and it will be the best codex ever in the history of the world*,I'm sending out emails to GW today ..

Barely even lurking..

I wasn't going to bother commenting on something that makes no fundamental changes to the book, but otherwise enforces the point that the quality of editing and checking makes GW rules the most expensive toilet paper in the world.

But I hate seeing Toby disappointed, so I rate this FAQ a solid "meh". ;)

No-wonder you're not happy about stuff, if you're using glossy (full colour) but non-absorbant loo roll. That's spreading the wealth to an unsavoury degree.

Happy about the typhus errata, but plagues look horribly expensive now vs. csm and even sonics.
Dust will probably be gaining more dust (I havent even bothered painting my 2 squads I got ages ago ...).

I have to agree. I have remained fairly positive about GW as I have spent far too much time and effort to be disillusioned (plus I have a Salamanders army yet to be even assembled), but to have an FAQ on a book not even a month old is a joke!?

ok i looked at all the changes and except for the hellbrute points cost (yay) and the the plague zombie rule (which im guessing now means all instead of your choice) how thick does someone have to be to not realise mark of khorne can also mean daemons of khorne because correct me if im wrong but doesnt the daemonic skin have the mark on it? and Warriors have to be dedidcated to their chosen god before Daemonhood (with the exception of undivided in which case then they have done something right) and finally the terminator thing is a typo anyone can see that which should have been caught BEFORE production

Thing is no individual or small group can write or playtest something with the mindset of everyone that reads it, some players get a codex and immediately look for how to break it! I don't believe its possible for GW to cover all the bases. A living FAQ is the best alternative. Plus its what the net has been screaming for for ages, a company that listens to issues and solves problems quickly.

I wonder why the 5 point shift on the helbrute. I mean - it's 5 points. Don't get me wrong - i'll happily spend that 5 points elsewhere - but 5 points hardly makes a difference to it does it?

Apparently UK edition was a misprint and all other languages had 100 points as the cost.
