FAQ killed Blood Angels

Post  Matthew G on Thu May 29, 2014 10:56 am

Yeah
So I was over reading the forums @ Bolter and chainsword when a post caught my attention about the FAQ breaking my army.
I had to go re-read the FAQ, and yupp, there it is.

At the start of the FAQ they give a unit break down of all the units.

Seems, all blood angel tanks have lost their Lucifer Engines except for the Baal Predator.

Baal predator (tank, Fast) 3HP

Rhino (Tank, Transport) 3HP
Razorback (tank, transport) 3HP
Vindicator (Tank) 3HP
Predator (tank) 3HP.....
etc

AND all the points are the same as they were... meaning, now according to the wording on the FAQ, I pay 50points for THE SAME RHINO as codex Space Marines, and SM gets theirs @ 35pts (or something)....

Basically I pay a Blood Angel Tax of 15pts per vehicle (not counting the baal pred) to field any tank in my army now...

I *sincerely* hope this was an over sight....

Not sure what I am going to do now... Will the league decree that I still keep the FAST rule on all my tanks (not Land raiders, they never had it) and keep on truckin' or, is the everyone going to enforce this apparent FAQ and deny me from using the fast rule?

I know Disco uses Blood Angels, I am not sure who else plays them to be affected by this....

They should still have it in everything but writing. the most likely reason is they are just waiting for the new codex (which sounds like it should be after orks...) but considering its a staple of the codex I feel it should still be legit.

I think it's a straight up copy-pasta mess up. I mean, why else are Vidicators, Predators, and Whirlwinds in the FAQ for Grey Knights? I think they just got real lazy with the imperial vehicle update.

That is just stupid. For a shock and awe army loosing the fast advantage to the tanks, keeping the price has just turned into a army of taxes. Lol what the tech marines changing rent. Commander using this rhino is $600000 for the use of this battle. Scratches, dents, monstrous creatures......... Are not covered under warranty.

Whew.

So it's alright for me to keep my engines as it was then? Good. Didn't know what I was going to do.

They are SO lazy over there, I mean really - either that or no one at GW actually plays BA to just know that "hey, BA tanks are special"...

Just wait til the new dex comes out. I mean they took away warpheads from orks, and made zogwart useless. They probably don't care atm because the new dex is so close to coming out. They are unnecessary changes to 2 of the lowest win rate armies out there (last time I checked they were in a race with sisters for worst codex).
