Been playing around with some ideas on using CSM with daemon allies.  Not the most competitive since sounds like CHaos won’t be getting any further updates but it seems like it can take on some opponents?

    The only FAQ’s that actually changed were Dark Angels and Astra Militarum.

    For all of the rest, they changed the update date, but nothing else.

    Apparently the changes to Yarrik’s Power Claw, and the Ravenwing Strike force are so significant that those 2 updates resonate through a handful of other FAQs?

    Nothing makes me angrier at Games Workshop than the way they handle FAQ’s. This round of updates appears designed to prove they have not yet run out of new ways to express incompetence with regards to FAQs. It almost feels like 2 FAQed item per year is worse than no FAQs at all.

    Releasing responsible, and complete FAQs is the best thing ITC does, and is doing so much to help build stable gaming communities. Keep it up.
