Default Huge, sweeping 40K FAQ changes

Hey everybody. Someone at Games Workshop finally woke up. A bunch of Codex books and the rulebook have gotten new FAQs.

Specifically, all Space Marine books (not counting Daemonhunters), the Dark Eldar and the rulebook have seen some very interesting changes.

Dark Angels and Black Templars are suddenly on-par with 5th edition books.

Post your thoughts, discuss the changes and most of all, be happy that clearly some moron at GW was fired.

Funny how GKs didn't get any update. I know it's because the codex comes out in April, but still it's ironic how they always get everything last...

On a more serious note, where are my 35pts rhinos with smokes and repair for the Sisters of Battle codex???

Yeah I wasn't overly impressed with how Witch Hunters were ignored either, but this is still a huge step forward for GW, so I'm not going to complain.

I mean, Dark Angels can actually do stuff now.

Deathwing Terminators packing thunder hammers and storm shields (the real kind, not the gimpy, stupid kind) and a cyclone missile launcher that fires two shots, for ten points less than Codex Marines pay for theirs. Oh yes, that is sweet.

Black Templars rockin' 5 man Terminator Squads with cyclone launchers that fire two shots and can take Tank Hunters? Why yes, I think I will.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck yes~!
It made me sad that they didn't fiddle with the point costs of various options (like Devastator's weapon options, and Razorback ditto) in the Space Marine codex, but oh well.

Link please?

This does sound awesome, though.

And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp, Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

I can't remember how many times I wrote GW (and I mean people like JJ or Andy Hoare) in the last 6 years asking them do that. The answer (and I got the same from many people on HO or B&C) always was: we don't want player to need the FAQs to play, so forget about any FAQ updates as they will only create confusion. I the wake of the infamous PDF WH and DH codice, I was a big ball of nerdrage about how they didn't update the rules at the same time. Again, the answer was "we don't want the players to get confused with different printouts".

All in all, I'm really happy that GW is embracing the third millenium and recognizes the Internet as the powerful tool it can be With my Codex: GK coming out, my Sisters can wait a bit. With the last "Incoming" about GK, I must say that GW is rapidly gaining goodwill as far as I'm concerned.
