40K News: Chaos FAQ is Up!

It’s a short ‘un, but a good ‘un!


Page 61 – Typhus, Plague Zombies

Change to ‘Plague Zombies are Chaos Cultists that have the

Fearless, Feel No Pain and Slow and Purposeful special rules

and cannot purchase options other than to add additional

models to the unit.’

Page 69 – Axe of Blind Fury

Change first rules sentence to ‘Models with the Mark of

Khorne, or Daemons of Khorne, only.’

Page 91 – superscript note 5

Change to ‘Models with the Mark of Khorne, or Daemons of

Khorne, only.’

Page 97 – Chaos Terminators, Options, second bullet point

Change to ‘Any Chaos Terminator may choose any of the

following three options:’

Page 97 – Helbrute

Change points value to 100 points.

So that answers some of the questions! I love that they made the Axe of Khorne available to Daemon Princes and Plague Zombies able to be taken in bigger squads. That was kind of lame, before and it seemed like an obvious oversight. Our source was right on that Plague Zombie issue, too, so that was awesome.

Lowering points on the Hellbrute is interesting! Too my knowledge, that hasn’t happened before. I still wish you could take Chaos Wargear for him, though.

What do you guys think?

    Man, I went and broke off a lot of Terminator arms and reconfigured them all to work with the new book. Wasted hobby time!

    The change to the price of the Hellbrute was interesting, showing GW capable of a second thought….

      Yeah, that was most interesting to me. I have heard rumors of some units getting a price hike that need it: Purifiers, Vendettas, etc. but I doubted it. This may be evidence to the contrary, which would be great!

      Yeah, I really don’t see why the units that could make best use of them, don’t get them. A reason to buy Rhinos, I guess! Hahaha

    Nice FAQ but it still doesn’t answer the current abbadon argument where people are saying he can’t join marked units

      I think that is a pretty silly argument, personally. I know we will rule that Abby can join any unit. I don’t think any TO in the nation will rule the other way, at least none that I speak with.

        I used Abby at a local tournament this weekend and all the player agreed that he should be able to join maked Units. My three matchups were space marine types and his 12″ PE bubble was very useful and hatred just wrecked them.

          I totally agree, I think that the intent is clear. I understand the argument against it, but I feel that there is no need in this case to read it the restrictive way.
