Default How does Veil of Tears work?

I was looking at the FAQ for Eldars in 6th edition and I saw that you should replace the second and third sentences under Harlequins Shadowseer with "The Shadowseer, and all of the models in the unit, have Stealth and Shrouded special rules." This would give them a 3 points better cover save, a 4+ at least. The thing is that it does not replace the old thing, making the enemy do a test for the spotting distance against the unit. Does this mean that they have both? I think it seems a bit too good to be true.

I think "replace the second and third sentences" should be "replace the second and third paragraphs"

2nd Sentence is the one that starts "It follows the same rules as" and the third starts " The Shadowseer uses he power"

I think they stuffed it up and it is everything after "(see Pg20-21)" that is to be replaced.

How does Veil of Tears work?

With a bag of salt on top, and a huge helping of cheese, eaten through a loophole.

It takes a pack of Wolves to tree a Lion... here is hopping the new DA codex reflects that.

That's what I thought too. Don't really know if it is for better or worse than before though, but at least it is a good thing that the Shadowseer is still a psyker like the warlocks, now that it makes a difference. And that the unit gets plasma grenades now that you can throw them.

well now the new FAQ is out they have corrected the cock up from the old FAQ.

Now reads
replace the entire entry with
"A shadowseer and her unit have the stealth and shrouded special rules" so no more rolling to spot them. yes for a few weeks there it was a gift but not to be however this is still a mean unit as the powers stack.
With the fleet re-rolls for run and charge and still having the move through cover they can do a lot.
