Next will be all the sooking and bitching when GW issues the C&D I suppose.
I'm curious to know if Nova can really put the changes into their FAQ, or what parts of this compendium that they can.
One way to do it would be to simply list the subtracted changes.
Locator Beacon -Costs 10 points less than your codex entry
With this they dont actually break GWs Copyright, not as far as I'm aware.
I dont think they can add those Fighter Ace rules, they are a waste for the most part though, 50pts for each flier to get a D3 chart of effects.
The Stormraven for all SM could look like this.
Storm Raven, any SM army may take a stormraven for the same points cost as listed in codex BA, must replace Bloodstrike missiles with BumBum missiles (that so happens to have the same stats as the new missile).
I'm sure there are ways of doing it, it's either this or simply banning the book outright as it's nothing more than an errata you have to pay for.
Why should someone get to have cheaper or better fliers than another person simply because they bought this compendium.
From what the voices in my head are telling me it's one of the biggest wargaming conventions in the US. They also host one of the biggest 40k tournaments where some of the best players in the US compete.
I could be wrong though as I've never been but pretty much every podcast (all US based ones for sure) I listen to has mentioned, promoted and talked about Nova.
