FAQ's are out in German now, and of course we have the google translations for them. It seems like a lot of the answers that we were hoping for, did not make it. However, taking a closer look, everything that was answered was erratas, not actual Faqs. So perhaps this is just a quick answer to some serious issues in German.


I fully expect that this simply deals wth rules issues in German, and that a proper FAQ is on its way shortly. So lets not jump on the this sucks because none of the questions were answered scenario. The update is only in German, and included no Faq questions, only erratas.

Errata
Page 26 - demon of Tzeentch
replace the last sentence with the following: "In addition
Tzeentch demons repeat all protection drafts
of 1 "

Page 49, 100, Sections - disease drones device-type,
change the device-type to "cavalry with schwebemo
Module "or cavalry with floating module (Charaktermo
dell) ".

Page 66 - powerful rewards, Obesity
change the sentence as follows: "the demon has +1 life
point and the special rule it does not die. "

Page 104 - demon of Tzeentch
Change the last half sentence as follows: "protect drafts of 1
be "repeated.

Summary - Icon of Chaos
replace the first paragraph with the following: "If
you the melee bestimmst result, you add one
Results point to your website, in particular if the
melee at least one friendly unit with an
Bound icon of chaos. "


NOTHING about the Tzeentch Chariot.
NOTHING about Masque and Blue Scribes not being Heralds.
NOTHING about Fiends reducing I to 0.
NOTHING about Heralds being Primary detachment only.

  1. Summary - Icon of Chaos

    you the melee bestimmst result, you add one
    Results point to your website, in particular if the
    melee at least one friendly unit with an
    Bound icon of chaos. "

  3. At least GW is paying attention?

    Its true, I immediately proclaimed "Oh god dammit, GW! This sucks! You didnt answer an-"

    But then that whole "dont jump on the 'this sucks' bandwagon" sentence...and yeah. So, like i said: at least they're paying attention and they'll hopefully have a faq out soon that does more than just errata.

  4. Neither of the herald questions seem like actual questions to me the intent seems clear. Would you really want an ally to be able to take 4 HQs?

    1. so you think that daemons should have a separate set of rules to follow? as it has been pointed out, there are already codices that allow more than one unit to be taken for a single force org slot. By your reasoning, those codices should also only have one to a selection. sorry wolves, only one hq, sorry blood angels, only one sanguinary priest, etc

    2. I think it follows the trend perfectly. Dark Angels can only take Deathwing and Ravenwing as troops if they are your primary detachment. In the future with 6th ed dexes, I expect to see more of these force org modifiers restricted to the primary detachment.

    1. Uhm, I think it is referring to the "jet pack cavalry" unit type for plague drones.

  6. Sweet, one result point to my website. I was waiting for them to do that. lol

  7. Well I think that the German Errata/Faq is going to be different due to the fact that what might have been clear in the English draft would be potentially in exact in the German draft, especially with the errata to the Plague drones shown above, because their unit type is pretty clear in the English Codex. So it might be that the reason that fiends and other rules are not covered is because they are clearer in the German codex and don't need an errata or FAQ.

    1. In short:
      German Tz Chariots can fire on the move. Must be those BMW parts.

  8. Cool. They fixed printing errors.

    That's 3 Codex releases full of printing errors.
    It took them months to rule on the Heldrake weapon mount. Don't hold your breath for answers.

    Stil like their new release method?

    1. You're not bothered in the slightest spending $55 on a book, only to find out it was never edited?

      I'm seriously surprised I'm alone in this sentiment.

    2. If that edit makes a Bloodthirster actually fit it's blasted fluff, then yes.

      Otherwise, not really bothered. It still feels like :

      Roll 2d6. On a 2-4 you lose. on a 5-8, re-roll. On a 9-12, your opponent does. But you have to keep re-rolling anyway because everything's random. It's chaos, baby!

    3. Oh Pegboard, have you even played a game with or against Chaos Daemons yet? You've been carrying on about the warpstorm table since first rumors. Having actually played a game using CD, I can honestly say its nowhere near as disruptive as the Stormlord's infinite night fight and lightning strikes.

  9. I had my German speaking wife go over these with me...to clarify. This might be a little bit of rehash based on the replies I saw above...

    Page 26 - "repeat protection rolls" = re-roll saving throws of 1

    Page 49/100 - Change unit type to Jet Pack Calvary, but the unit type in the English is already Jet Pack Calvary, so it must be a correction or clarification of what was included in the German codex.

    Page 66 - +1 wound and It Will Not Die (fairly clear from the Google Translation)

    Page 104 - Re-roll saving throws of 1

    Summary: Icon of Chaos - It translates to more or less what the description says in the English codex.

  10. It's just stuff to bring the codex in line with the English version. Looks like they made a bunch of mistakes when they translated to German. Nothing new when comparing it to the English version. The version number is 1.0a. The 'a' means it is a local version update.

  11. As a german by myself i can confirm that all of the listed things are errors corrected to be in line with the english codex.
    We had some strange typos and even totally diffrent rules *lol*

    - On one page the icon of Chaos was giving us +1 to the warpstormtable when the unit carrying it was in close combat.
    - Tzeentch just lets us reroll invulnarable saves, not ALL saves, so no reroll for prince with armor.
    - Obesity (normal +1W and "it will not die") gave us +1 to Toughness.

    So keep calm this is not a real FAQ for us but just fixing fast the WORST total bullshit errors.
    We all will get our real FAQ/Errata soon.

    1. So what is your nationality when you are in the company of other people? Also it is true that whilst to you the toilet is a mundane and functional item to us it is the basis for an entire culture.

    2. What... does your comment even mean, Boylan? I'm looking at it, completely boggled by the sheer nonsensical nature of it.

      Anyways, glad to see it's just a german spellcheck. that's good.

    3. Call me Frank :) it was meant to be nonsense. A little blackadder always livens up the day.

  12. Its just some translation errors.

    In the germanversion daemons of tzeentch could only reroll failed invul saves of 1. Corpulence gave +1 t and it will not die and plaque drones were jumppack cav. They corrected the spelling errors and now its like the english book. Nothing else changed

  13. If someone needs a translation for some passages in die FAQ, just feel free to ask :)
