Drazhar has no assault grenades, though, does he?

No but he is still awesome. Also Duke seems like a good choice to.

Time for Hesperax to shine methinks, as she still ignores armour saves.

Characters that Ignores all Amour Saves:
Lelith Hesperax, Duke Sliscus (on a 5+) and Drazhar (when using +2 strength)

loss of WW assault is a kick in the nuts. Other than that, no significant changes.

DE / IG / Daemons / Orks / Nids got hurt by the generic cover being 5+ now rather than 4+, DE got further nerfed with the move of FNP to being 5+ only. This will result in these armies seeing a significant reduction in survivability that 4+ or better armies will not be seeing.

Incubi being only AP3 is a kick in the teeth too.

FF has been significantly reduced in effectiveness since we all have a jink save anyways on all of our vehicles

Haywire is significantly more usefull against all vehicles - Always hit on 3+ or better *except against walkers you hit on WS.

Not sure how the '1' result on combat drugs interacts with FLEET & running - do you get to roll 3 dice with a rerol to run? kinda useless...

didn't notice the FAQ clearing up Vect's weapon... but apparently he's not the only one, I guess the special characters in several codecies didn't get clarified (BA in particular)

Duke was always a good choice. Drazhar wasn't, but now is. Challenges, he seems made for them.

Anyone thinking of using Harlequins as a counter to terminators now (due to rending)? Also according to the Eldar FAQ they get a 3+ cover save in area terrain.

Yup, since they're getting both the 'Stealth' as well as the 'Shrouded' USR at the same time.
Makes me wonder though ... do they still get the 2D6x2 sight restriction against enemy shooting as well ?
All three effects combined together would be ... well, awesome.

No, it says "Replace the fourth and following sentence". So we get a better cover save instead fo the 2D6x2 spotting distance.

Does the eldar FAq also count for DE Harlequins?
