Default New 40k FAQ Inbound??

Noticed this over on BoLs and have basically been refreshing the GW site every hour since. Apparently if you have digital editions they are available for download.







Hoping for some clarifications on the Dark Angels Codex (listed), and am interested to see if Blood Angels (not listed) and Space Wolves (listed) are going to have their Scouts and Dreadnoughts FAQ'd up to the SM/DA standard.

OR this means nothing and GW remains silent on clarifying the rules they've written.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Booooo. Don't suppose you've seen the Dark Angel one have you?

I downloaded both the Daemon and the BRB yesterday - However, with no changelog I have not a snowballs chance in hell to see the actual errata that was made.

According to whining on the DA groups on Facebook, Dark Angels can now take 'Characters on a Space Marine Bike' in the Ravenwing Strikeforce.

They're still whining that it doesn't bestow Ravenwing to the character.

Dark Angels:

Quote:
ERRATA
Page 159 – Ravenwing Strike Force, Restrictions
Replace this with the following:
‘All units in this Detachment must have the Ravenwing
special rule (pg 148) or be a Dark Angels Character
equipped with a Space Marine bike.’
BETTER THAN NOTHING.

40k BRB:

Quote:
Page 46 - Charge Move, Moving Charging Models
Change the first bullet point to read:
‘If possible, a charging model must end its charge move
in unit coherency with another model in its own unit
that has already moved. If it is not possible for a charging
model to move and maintain unit coherency, move it as
close as possible to another model in its own unit that
has already moved instead.’


Page 89 - Skimmers, Special Rules
Change this sentence to read:
‘Skimmers that are not also Heavy vehicles or are
immobilised have the Jink special rule.’

Page 165 - Hammer of Wrath, second paragraph
Add the following sentence:
‘If a model with this special rule charges a Walker, the
hit is resolved against the Front Armour Facing unless
the Walker is immobilised, in which case it is resolved
against the Armour Value of the facing the charging
model is touching.’

Page 166 - Independent Character, Independent
Characters and Infiltrate
Change this sentence to read:
‘An Independent Character without the Infiltrate special
rule cannot join a unit of Infiltrators during deployment,
and vice versa.’

FAQs
Q: Do passengers disembarking from an immobile vehicle such
as a Drop Pod that has just arrived from Deep Strike Reserve
have to take a leadership test to see if they can fire normally (or if
they have to fire Snap Shots)?
A: No.

Q: If I have both the Tank Hunters and Rending special rules,
and I roll a 6 to penetrate an enemy vehicle but subsequently
roll low on my additional D3 (failing to penetrate the enemy
vehicle), can I choose to re-roll only the D3 or do I re-roll the
original D6 and hope to get another 6?
A: Re-roll the original D6.
Will keep looking...

EDIT: This should be a .zip file of the December FAQ. I have downloaded it and nothing went off on the computer's security.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

So no Nids or Bangles? Should I take this as a good sign?

Here's the link to the Black Library's now updated FAQ section. The GW site still hasn't been updated.
