... what changed for the worse for the Eldar? Intercept actually does something now! (I just bought two boxes of Hawks last week!)
Not too much, but there are a couple bits in there.
1st. We have 2 changes in the Eldar FAQ to the same sentence:
(older but still there)
Page 35 – Intercept.
The last sentence should be changed to: “In assaults, they
never require worse than 4+ to hit vehicles that do not have a
Page 35 – Swooping Hawks, Intercept.
Replace the second sentence with “In assaults, they always treat
vehicles, except Walkers, as having Weapon Skill 0”.
Its the same sentence in the Dex, and the rules don't really conflict. But its the principle of it damn it.
I was a little bit let down by the Executioner only being AP 3, the last DE FAQ got my hopes up that with Demiklaves being AP 2 that an Executioner that performed similarly would have been ruled similarly. But I really should have known better on that one.
I guess Star Engines losing 6" of movement is a loss, but they are rarely taken enough by anyone to rant over.
The rest was kinda on a wire anyway. Fortuning DE, Overwatching with Destructor, Vibro Cannons vs. Flyers, etc. I'm not really surprised by any of these rulings. The one thing Eldar get to keep (for now) is a unit of Character Warlocks.
