FAQ's!

Post  Spamus Eatus on Sat Jun 30, 2012 8:55 am

Well whoever is in charge of doing FAQ's and such now deserves a hand. Here is the comprehensive FAQ list for everyone's army. I haven't had any time to get a book or look at any new rules, but figured I would put this up to save everyone some time.

Oh god, Night Scythes don't have to slow down to drop their payload. At most you'd only want to slow to 24" to prevent Snap Fire.

Ya, AP1, that's fair right?

Combined with the fact that most our vehicles are skimmers and get a 5+ Jink save... (Monolith, Ghost Ark, Anni Barge, Surfboard (4+ if it turbo's))

And Surfboards are Chariots (Can assault while embarked)... ALSO, it can use the symbiotic repair ability to negate the loss of a hull-point (save it for the last one, IMO) It might be worthwhile putting Trazyn on a Chariot now, as assaulting that unit of Ork Boyz would be a tasty treat.

You have no idea how awesome it is that we can drop our dudes out of our Nightscythes if it moves 36".... that's redikerous. I'll have to lookup if we can charge too. I might have to get two boxes of Lychguard with Warscythes... that 10 man unit just got hella scary.

No "Fear" buff for flayed ones, that's too bad. Although with a flank march manouver, the big unit can come in the table edge and attempt an assault. Could be good. (would need some co-operation from the dice though)

C'Tans Gaze of Death got buffed. (Both happen at initiative).

Tomb Spyders with the Fabricator Claw thingy can fix hullpoints too, that's kind nice.

Mark, have a Spyder follow your barge.

As for charging off of a Night Scythe, I am guessing you're only going to want to move 24", as 25-36 forces Snap Firing for anyone disembarking. Snap firing Tesla is still rather scary, though.

Nah, I put Lychguard in mine. They have no guns. 36" every single time.

If you can assault out of them though, I might try and figure out how you can get Praetorians or Wraiths in there. (might be too many logistical hurdles, I need to read on if the unit that bought the flyer comes in from reserve too)

So. The chaos FAQ says Ahriman "Generates Three new powers". But he has 5. does he give up 2, or does he just choose to replace three of the ones he knows?

Like say, give up bolt of change, doombolt and gift of change... but retain warptime and wind of chaos. And, if he uses warptime or wind of chaos, doe they use any warp charge?

It's like Eldrad I think. He either retains all his current powers, or trades them all and generates 3 from the rulebook.

Keep in mind warp charges are generated based on your mastery level, not how many powers you know.

mwahahahah. FW just released a FAQ for some of their psykers. now i must buy a Sevrin Loth; he just got more badass:

Magister Sevrin Loth, Chief Librarian of the Red Scorpions (IA9: The Badab War – Part One, p165)
Magister Sevrin Loth gains the following special rule, which replaces the Master Psyker rule: Psyker (Mastery level 3).
The rules for The Armour of Selket are changed as follows:
The Armour of Selket: This is a suit of Artificer armour that incorporates a Psychic Hood. In addition, the wearer can use their own psychic energies to empower the suit’s defences further. At the beginning of his turn, by expending a Warp Charge, Loth’s 2 Armour save becomes a 2 Invulnerable save which lasts until the beginning of Sevrin Loth’s next turn.
The Psyker rule is replaced with the following:
Loth may either use Smite, Force Dome, Machine Curse, The Avenger, Quickening, Null Zone and Vortex of Doom (see page 57 of the Space Marine Codex ),
or,
generate six powers from any one of the following Psychic Disciplines: Biomancy, Pyromancy or Telekinesis.

Yes wonderful, Loth up front attached to a Tactical Squad w/ FNP..... 2++ w/ Look out sir and FNP.

I'm ignoring for the moment that dude is a better psyker than all the other SM Libbys, GK's, Ahriman (sp?) and probably Eldrad.

It would be nice to see a complete "rescaling" of the psychic powers thng since it changed so much.

Eldrad should still be king on the psychic field.. Ahriman not far behind. But having chapter librarians , and nw ones at that going wonky like this is a bit bizarre.

His core powers arent going to be as good... But being to generate 6 new ones .. I just find it weird.
