I was scouring through the FAQs and wanted to see how it affected our playstyle.

BTW the FAQs can be found if you havent seen them.


1. Biovores got an upgrade (WOOO!) Template weapons now affect ALL levels. So feel free to drop those bio-bombs on those cowardly fleshbags hiding in those buildings.

Still looking through them. Feel free to add any opinions/revelations.

Just want to say, it looks like Maleceptor's got a little bit better. Witchfire powers with no weapon profile hit automatically. They could be good at zapping fliers. =)

Whooooo!!

I'm particularly fond of the IC rules that prohibit multiple Psyker ICs in the same unit from spamming the same power. Enough of those Eldar/DE/Harlequin Psychic Shriek Ld bomb units that arrive with pinpoint accuracy.

The more I read this, the more I love it. If you have the skyfire special rule, you can fire blast and template weapons at other flyers and FMC's. It means the Harpy and Hive Crone just got a whole lot more useful. Vector Strike + Drool cannon? HVC from the harpy at any flyer? Not too bad of a buff for Nid FMC's. =)

I'm most pleased that the Patriarch can psychic shriek tool he's blue in the face with the changes to witchfire powers.

That's not the only blatant rulechange, Jun. There's something about not being able to move through walls of ruins, while before they stated models are generally assumed to be able to move through any and all difficult terrain. I'm glad this is a first draft, because there's some weird stuff still in there. But there's also a lot of clarifications.

I'm curious to see how this ends up :)

New FAQ Draft is out for the cult and it makes them allies of convenience instead of battle brothers. In my eyes this makes two crappy factions (nids and gene cult) even worse... please flame GW online like I am lol.

I just really don't get it. The white dwarf says they ally like tyranids (which are BB with themselves) but even if it didn't... nids need all the help we can get, nerf Eldar instead lol.
