Default Eldar Witchblade and Singing Spear

Concerning against vehicles only:

In CODEX:Eldar, the Witchblade entry says to refrence the BRB. The new entry for the witchblade in the 6th ed book says it has armorbane and uses the user's strength.

Here is the fun part

The singing spear entry in CODEX:Eldar says that the weapon follows the same rules as a witchblade, wounding on 2+ and S9 against vehicles.

It reads to me like "refer to the BRB for the rules, but the summary of the rule is 2+ wound and S9 against vehicles." Which is not longer the case. None the less, the paragraph does say that a singing spear is S9 and it was not ammended in the FAQ...

So, by RAW, is the singing spear S9 with armorbane since it follows the same rules as a witchblade, but specifically mentions being S9?

Thanks,
Des

rulebook takes precedence over old codex descriptions of old rules, it uses the wielder's strength.

Singing Spears have their own rules, so they woundon 2+ and S9 against Vehicles. It doens't say they are Witchblades, it says they are like witchblades then goes on to tell you what the rules for the weapon are.

ya, it says they are like witchblades, but doesn't actually say they are witchblades.
