I just typed out a full list of big points but then the site went down again. -.-

- Shaken/Stunned now applies to passengers disembarking, so no shooting for you. If your stunned transport gets destroyed then you can only move the following turn.

- Flying MCs can get shot down by markerlights. Gogo laser pens!

- Aegis Lines must be placed in one block or line.

- Tau tanks have Shrouded with disruption pods - i.e. 3+ cover in the open if they move (and they will).

- Runes of Warding doesn't stack

- Reserve modifiers don't work for allied detachments

- Challenges are an awesome way for 10pt sergeants to invalidate 200+pt HQ combat monsters (totally cinematic, right?).

And more...

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

The new changes to royal court members joined to a squad that runs off are brutal.

But on the plus side Necrons can embark back onto their zooming flyers. Because Necron flyers weren't good enough already...

Mostly a very good set of FAQs. The Target Lock debacle is fixed, and a big chunk of questions about hitting flyers have been sorted out. (Short version- if you have to ask, then no) Nice to see FMCs get Skyfire and switch to Glide mode when Grounded, too.

90% of character units are gone. No more LOSir shenanigans with Nob Bikers or Paladins, for example.

There is, however, some poor proof reading. There's an obvious typo in the Tyranid FAQ (piling into Whips should keep you at your initiative step, but there's a rogue '1' in there) and the wording on Chaos Icons has been borked into complete illegibility in both the Daemon and CSM FAQs. Hopefully they'll sort it out soon...

Incubi, Huskblade and Daemonweapons are now ap2
Monolith doesn't get a jinx save
Wraiths Whip coils is done at the start of combat (does piling in does not reduce you to I1).

Maybe I'm just retarded but can someone explain this one to me from the Rulebook FAQ:

Q: Can blast markers hit a model that is not in the attacker’s line of
sight if they do NOT scatter? (p33)
A: Yes, as long as the target enemy model for the blast
weapon is within the firer’s line of sight.

The way I read it is: if the template it touching a model out of the firer's line of sight but hits one that is in the firer's line of sight it still counts.

If there is a tac squad hiding behind a rhino, and you can only see 1 member of them, you can aim for that 1 marine and cause hits on other members of the squad that cannot be seen. It's a clarification more than anything, presumably someone at the studio tried to pull "you can only kill the 1 marine because he's the only one you can see" trick.
