A group of misc 8th edition information bits. This gives a small peak into armies like, Necrons, Tyranids, Orks and Space Wolves. Plus we have what looks like some typed out notes from Blog for the Blood God.
These are from Blog for the Blood God
via various sources on Dakka. These were mostly translated from other sites.

Scatter lasers are 36″ Heavy 4 Ap0

Inquisitors can enter any Imperial vehicle and give bubble buffs to Imperium keyword units, depending on the Ordo chosen
Grey Knights know a nerfed verison of Smite, 12″ 1 mortal wound (3 if Daemon keyword)
Reanimation protocols are made at the start of your movement phase. Roll a D6 for every slain model, on a 5+ it comes back. You can roll again in the following turns. You cannot roll if the whole unit is slain. This, along with sweeping advance being removed, will make removing swathes of Necrons a lot harder; kill squads all at once.
Living metal allows for automatically regaining lost wounds
Basic Gauss is 24″ Rapid Fire **Ap-2**, Gauss Cannon is Ap-3 DmgD3 We have to assume AP-2 is on a 6 to wound otherwise GTFO.
Warriors cost unchanged form 7th.
Monolith M6″ W20 S8 T8 Save3+, Gauss Flux Arc Heavy 3 S5 Ap-2, Whip Heavy 6 S8 Ap-2 DmgD6. When it gets charged, roll on a D6 and if 4+ (or worse, depending on wounds lost) charging unit gets D6 mortal wounds.
Grav is S5 Ap-3 and does DmgD3 if Save is 3+ or better More flexible across different model types but still will threaten vehicles depending on number of shots.
Nartecium no longer provides FnP but heals a model for D3 wounds
Storm Shields still provide 3+ Invuln save
ATSKNF rerolls failed Morale tests
Markerlights are cumulative per phase and provide different bonuses, depending on how many hit the unit. Basic is reroll 1s, then you have remove cover bonus, increase BS, use Seeker/Destroyer Missiles (normally snapshooting)
Railguns have a chance to do Mortal Wounds on a 6
Activating Nova Reactor may result in Mortal Wound (Riptide Nova reactor is a mortal wound to activate.)
Firesight Marksmen are Independent Characters odd?
Pulse rifles are AP0. Pulse Blasters AP-1 at 10″ and AP-2 at 5″, Assault 2.
Ghostkeels and Stealth Suits give a -1 malus to BS if shot at from more than 12″, can deploy outside of deployment zone at 12″.
Broadside Railgun is Heavy 2 S8 Ap-4 DmgD6, HYMP is Heavy 4 S7 Ap-1 DmgD3 bye bye missile spamming Broadsides.
Pathfinders and Kroots are faster than Fire Warriors
Our plasma statline is as expected, but imperium plasma has improved.
Rail weapons statlines are as expected, but with a chance to cause additional mortal wounds.
Support systems got a bit of a revamp, some now do different things compared to the way it was in 7th ed.
Sept rules not in the index. Looks like will need to wait for codex.
Firesight marksmen are seperate characters now.
Markerlights are cumulative per phase and do not get ‘expended’. There is a table showing what different numbers of ML hits do
Flyers no longer very hard to hit as 7th, they just have a small negative modifier to being hit. Velocity Trackers negate this.
Hammerhead had more wounds than a Leman Russ! Lower T though.
Crisis suit squads now come in a minimum size of 3
One support system allows a bonus to hit if all weapons shoot at the same target, another improves AP of weapons
Ork Battlewagon M12″ W16 T7 Save 4+, can get T8 but loses Open-topped. Deff Rolla hits on a 2+, 6 attacks S8 Ap-2.
Forge Worlds keywords, Cawl has Mars keyword and buffs Mars FW units.
Adeptus Mechanicus keyword is shared, Cult Mechanicus kw and Skitarii kw are present to differentiate. Bonuses target AM keyword
Canticles are chosen at the start of each Battle Round and last that much, cannot be chosen twice. Among the effects they allow for rerolling 1s to same FW kw units within 6″.
IG/Astra Militarum has regiment keyword and Orders are given automatically to same regiment kw unit within 6″.
Thunderwolves Cavalry M10″ W3 S4 T5 Save 3+, same equip as before and they cost nine melta bombs without equipments
Lord on Wolf has W7
Frost weapons add a mortal wound on a 6 (not clear on what dice roll)
Runic Armours give 5+ Invuln Save (4+ if Terminator)
Sisters of Battle:
The Sisters have been “half split” into 2 parts: Adeptus Ministorum and Adepta Sororitas Units have a “Order” key word, this keyword represents the name of your Order (Chapter for you Spheezee Mehreene players) and can be changed to whatever you like.
Example would be “Order of Expensive Metal Models We WANT PLASTIC!”. This would change the Canoness Lead the Righteous ability to say “You can re-roll all hit rolls of 1 for friendly Order of Expensive Metal Models We WANT PLASTIC! units within 6” of this model.
Acts of Faith Roll a D6 at the start of each of your turns. On a roll of 2+, one unit from your army with the Acts of Faith ability can perform an Act of Faith chosen from the following list. Som abilities may allow you to use more than on Act of Faith in the same turn; when this is the case, a different unit must be chosen to perform each Act of Faith.
Hand of the Emperor: The unit can immediately move as if it were the Movement phase.
Divine Guidance: The unit can immediately shoot as if it were the Shooting phase.
The Passion: The unit can, if it is within 1″ of an enemy unit, immediately pile in and attack as if it were the Fight phase.
Spirit of the Martyr: One model in the unit recovers D3 lost wounds, or you can return a single slain model to the unit with 1 wound remaining.
Shield of Faith: 6+ Inv save and can deny one psychic power in each enemy psychic phase in the same manner as a psyker but on D6 instead of 2D6.

Uriah Jacobus: 5power 4++ Banner of Sanctity: +1Ld to ministorum and AM units within 6″

Death Cult Assassins: 1power for 2, 5 for 10 M7″ WS3 S4 A4 5+ 5++ Zealot Death Cult Power blades are AP -2, power swords are -3 which they do NOT have anymore
Arco-Flagellants M7″ WS3 S4 A2 7+5++ Zealot Arco flails: +1S and D3 attacks instead of 1. So this means 2D3 for each Arco at S5 – They could have just made the model S5 unless this is future proofing for plastic Arco-Flagellants with other weapon options.
Penitent Engine: 6power for 1, 18 for 3 M7″ WS3 S5 T6 W7 A4 Ld8 4+ Zealot Desperate for Redemption: Roll a D6 after completing the first set of attacks for units of Penitent Engines in each Fight phase. On a roll of 4+, the unit can immediately pile in and attack for a second time. Penitent Buzz-Blades S2x Ap-3 Damage 3
Adepta Sororitas section Fluff notice: “So it was that the Sisters of Battle were recruited by the millions, their orders rising from the flames of cataclysm (age of apostasy) that saw the Imperium all but devour itself. For those that don’t know GW killed of 99.999999% of all sisters in an earlier Sisters codex, stating that there were just the primary orders and they contained some 10 000 sisters each and nothing else. So sisters have gone from millions to less than 100,000 and now back to millions. Technically it should be billions but GW and numbers….
Celestine: 8power +3 per geminae of 2 max 12″ 2+2+3+3+7 6 9 2+ 4++ Beacon of Faith: +1 Shield of Faith Inv 6″ bubble, Astra militarum and ministorum gain 6+ inv save.
