Every other change is secondary to that, in my opinion...
If a unit isn't in synapse, LD test then either "hunt", "feed" or "lurk" roll. Can't remember them exactly but lurk is defo fall back if you roll a 1-3.

See, that's my problem. Biggest thing you need to know for structuring your army effectively, and there's obviously a lot more there that simply hasn't been bothered to be noted.

From what I gather, three types, each with three different reactions dependant on the roll. That's a *huge* change, and no-ones bothered to look into it! Last few games I've been leaving my Feeders to it as Synapse can actually hinder them. How do I need to alter that now? How much better will their troops-based synapse warriors be now I can make them Fleet and keep up?

And why has no mention been made either on the FoC rumours?

They're all looking in the wrong places in the book.

If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

Wow, people still read BoK?

Seriously, he contradicts himself in the same sentence when describing melee weapons, refers back to things he hasn't written, and claims the Trygon has gone up in cost to 190pts.

He also can't structure a sentence without making my brain hurt. I'll just wait til saturday, thanks.

Synapse is functioning under the rules of 12' range and gives Fearless. INculdes the synapse creature under its affect. Auto rally when entering synapse range.

As for the instinctive rules. I can't remember all of them but I can try and create a list from memory ( as spotty as that is).

I do remember that Feed has a roll of a 6 causing wounds on the unit and then they assault a close enough unit( pretty sure it was enemy) and gains rage.

I figured feed would be similar to what Rippers do; eating themselves. Hunt is likely similar to what feed used to be and lurk should be mostly unchanged. But that is mostly guestimation and if you roll to determine what happens on a failed test, I could be only partially right.

Essentially you roll based on what chart the unit uses. "Feed" "Lurk" or "Hunt" and based on what you roll, 1-3, 4-5, 6. Then a specific result takes place. Lurk is mostly go to ground and cover fire or retreat. The hunt ones seem to be a weird set of just prowling around. The feed one is more toward heading toward trouble and getting killed/killing things.

The whole codex is on /tg/, if anyone braves its depths.

Yeah, no. It's out tomorrow, and illegal downloads contribute to prices going up further than they normally would. Don't give them an excuse to make things more expensive
