Woo another FAQ update (Demons)

Postby killmaimburn » Wed Oct 31, 2012 10:11 am

Demons "what is a demon?" addressed..
http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_Cus ... s_v1.2.pdf
(please note half the links through google etc still points to 1.1)
basically they get the best of both worlds the 5++ (which was missing in the pamphlet, possibly due to fail of reliance on BRB over codex) and fear(BRB new thing seperate to codex demon).. which was half added to the codex post 6th (FAQ to some units) , and EW,assualt etc etc (which people were suggesting was invalidated by the BRB being newer term "demon")

Q: Do models chosen from Codex: Chaos Daemons and / or the White Dwarf, August 2012, Codex: Chaos Daemons official update have the Daemon special rule from the Warhammer 40,000 Rulebook, or do they have the Daemon army special rule from Codex: Chaos Daemons?
(p27)
A: All models from Codex: Chaos Daemons and/or the White Dwarf, August 2012, Codex: Daemons official update have the
Daemon army special rule listed in Codex: Chaos Daemons with the addition of the Fear special rule from the Warhammer
40,000 rulebook and a 5+ invulnerable save.

I'm not 100% whether that addresses the soulgrinder hangover(I believe its brought into parity with the defiler with a 5+?)and i worry that "ALL MODELS..5+" will override all the tzeentch who weren't updated to 2 wounds (unit entry(+p27) vs faq....errrg).. but it should move ragefesting onto the next issue. :lol:
(inb4 why? forums have been full of it, and bara has legit raised it here a few times in passing..there was a contradiction/fail loop in there previously)

I for one am inspired.. I never actually bothered to look into any of my guys actually using fear before.
Barely even lurking..

When you say "best of both worlds" you mean "got their save nerfed"? (I realise you mentioned this further down) ;)

Since the only real difference between the Codex and the BRB was the asve (because they all get Fear in the Codex as a result of the FAQ previously anyway), I really can't see any "best" involved at all..... :P

Tis tricky, I've spent the morning reading it.. ( :cry: ) and p27 (the deamon army special rules)..lists EW and invulnerable in the same section and says "In addition if the profile of a model in this army includes a save characteristic, this is its invulnerable save.Some models may also have an armours save..]..noted separately"
Would the grammer of the FAQ suggest that the invulnerables as stated,stand (inc none in the pamphlet) and then "with the addition of" gain an additional 5+ invulnerable save.
(so horrors, the only unit I can be bothered to think of (runny nose) have both a 4++ (codex) and a 5++ (addition))
Its grammer.. I don't think its a stretch.. but I suck at grammer :lol:

I have an outrageous suggestion for you - perhaps the same person that has no clue about the Daemon Codex and wrote the update pamphlet still has no clue and wrote the FAQ?

From a technical point of view it seems to be 4++ and 5++ to me.

Unbelievable. They write a two PAGE codex - which they have no doubt had months to do, and they manage to screw that up and have to FAQ it straight away. Does anyone else wonder if they are spending too much time counting the pennies and not enough time proof-reading and checking for basic inconsistencies (is that a word?) before they put articles to press?
