First impressions of the Errata/FAQ's

So finally the Errata/FAQ's are out for everything and most of the codex ones are unsurprising.
Few are quite big however and worth glancing over.

Look Out Sir! seems to have lost the loophole I'd heard going about previously, thankfully.
Previously it was claimed you could take advantage of a characters armour and then transfer a failed wound to another model, but with the removal of the words "(or unsaved wounds)" from the section it means you definitely allocate the moment it is designated. Hurray for improvements!
I'm less sure on the wound being allocated to the nearest model, but it does make sense.

Some weapon improvements (husk blade) in the codex ones are interesting but stealth-nerfs (as they will be claimed) such as Paladins, Wolf Guard & others no longer being characters will likely cause some upset.

I won't go over everything in detail, thats best for you to do yourself (they are here: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/article.jsp?categoryId=600005&pIndex=1&aId=3400019&multiPageMode=true&start=2).

Unfortunately some things I feel should have been addressed haven't been. They tweaked the wording that Flyers can go between 18"-36" (which everyone had assumed anyway) but still no reason why the 18" combat speed exists anyway and why it shouldn't just be removed (see my post: http://igota4.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/6th-edition-flyer-rules-are-weird.html). However the fact you have to keep track of exactly how many inches each flyer moved in case they suffer Locked Velocity just seems annoying, frustrating and a cheap get out of their mistake.

Have to love there are still a few errors in the FAQ, visible even to those who haven't read through properly.
Ork Nobs needing to add a designers note which they left out of the Errata for example.

Anyway, have a look yourself and let me know what things caught your eye on the first look through!

  1. And they renewed the FAQ already..

    Disregard my "However the fact you have to keep track of exactly how many inches each flyer moved in case they suffer Locked Velocity just seems annoying, frustrating and a cheap get out of their mistake." remark above, it seems that the usual habbit of going 18.1" to get around Locked Velocity is over as you'll now speed off the board if it happens (not too bad a thing in some cases).

  2. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.

    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you

  4. You can download archived programs and put them onto
    your IPOD or MP3 player. Grammar and vocabulary quizzes
    generally consist of a sentence with a missing
    word. It appears, at least for now, that that language is English.

  8. Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to know so much approximately this, like you wrote the
    guide in it or something. I think that you simply can do with a few % to power the message home a
    little bit, however instead of that, that is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I'll certainly be back.
