FAQ's are live

Post  Lore Weaver on Tue Apr 23, 2013 8:33 am

Highlights include...

1) Imotekh's Lightning hits Flyers
2) They didn't fix Burning Chariots (fuckers)
3) Standard of Devistation works with Bolters, Combi-Bolters, Bolters on Bikes, and Hurricane Bolters
4) Powerfield only works for the models embarked in the vehicle if it hops inside one. (So.... gotta leave that dude on foot!)

another one of note;
dark angels biker command squads were given the option of now being able to add up to 2 more bikers to the previous 3 model-only squad.

that makes the photo of them in the codex leading the charge make alot more sense, since it shows a squad of 5, not 3.

Heh, that actually makes it usable. It was pretty terrible if you had a champ, apothecary, and banner, because if someone died, it was someone important.

Well ya, I wasn't using it to hit fliers. It didn't hit on a 6, it got automatic hits on a 6, but they ruled it the other way. Go figure :-) Means the Slaanesh hits on the Warp Storm table can hit fliers.

I thought the entry was rather straight forward. Is the flier an unengaged enemy model? Yes. Did you roll a 6? Yes. d6 hits, please!

Removed from play=removed as casualty.

reanimation protocols apply.

Holy fuck balls GW do you have any idea what you are doing??????

Necrons were either primary or allies to something like 10/16 at adepticon, including the winner. And now they get reanimation protocols vs stuff like Jaws?????

2x instances of sactioned"roll off to see what happens first" just seems to irk me for some reason.

otherwise, its mostly common sense stuff.

I.....don't get it....

"Page 99 Deathwing Terminator Squad, Options
Change the second bullet point to:
Any model can replace his storm bolter and powerfist
with:
- a pair of lightning claws .free
- a thunder hammer and storm shield ...........5 pts"

Why did they feel the need to change it from "All of his weapons" to "Storm boler and powerfist" yet still keep "Any model"

That wording completely locks the sergeant into SB/PS. You can't have a proper CC squad, because the sergeant will still have his SB/PS while everyone has claws or hammers. And look out of place and silly. I was enjoying giving the sergeant claws till now.

Since in the old Codex there was the stipulation that you couldn't take two of the same weapon (non-twin-linked) on a suit everyone thought the same should apply in the new Codex even though there is no stipulation anymore. Now there is no limit to how one picks support/weapon systems other than the number of slots available.

battlesuit whiners - if i was to field, say, 2 burst cannons on a suit. the old book would say "that is twin linked. treat it as twin linked". the new book now says "let your opponent know if that is a twin linked burst cannon, or 2 single burst cannons."

as for the deathwing sergeants, read that entry again you two. you've seen this wording in many a codex;
"Page 99 Deathwing Terminator Squad, Options
Change the second bullet point to:
ANY model can replace his storm bolter and powerfist
with:
- a pair of lightning claws .free
- a thunder hammer and storm shield ...........5 pts"

see the emphasis? the sergeant can still have claws or the hammer and shield. beau, but the clippers and glue down; dowwwwn; down. now let the little plastic hostage go.

and if you go back and read the original line in the codex, they changed it from "replace ALL of his weapons with:" to "replace his storm bolter and powerfist with:"

Mike: that's the point, the Sgt doesn't have a PF to trade. You could make the argument before that if one took a cyclone he'd have to trade it in (all his weapons) to get LC or TH. You'd be an idiot if you made that argument, but you could make it.

Now you HAVE to have a PF to trade for the others... And it explicitly says the Sgt has a PW.

Abaddon became better. Not nearly as likely to be spawned or "nerfed" by becoming a daemon prince. Wait, omg! It gets better, he gets to reroll the reroll! He can no longer become a daemon prince or spawn!

Do people not realize you make your choices of equipment and stuff going down the options list in the unit entries? That simplifies so many of these FAQ's.
