Yesterday GW released new FAQ's and Errata that include Index Xenos 1, the Eldar Codex, and a Designers Commentary. While I should of posted it up right away, I sat on it simply because I frustrated with it.

I know the title is touchy, but Im going to throw in my 2 cents today which I usually do not do. The whole "which datasheet do I use" mess is frustrating. Leaving options in the Index that are not part of the codex is in my opinion the messiest and worst part of 8th edition. I love the rules for 8th edition. I love how GW is engaging and communicating with the community..... I hate rules spread out over too many books or releases.

Im over it though as of writing this, simply because its all logical and I hate drama with index options still in use after a codex release, its just messy and overly complex. Even Forgeworld should be included in the codex, or at least put out a special edition book that puts it all into one "Advanced Codex". In an ideal world...... Its a rulebook, codex, and chapter approved for balance and updates.

GW if you read this.... Special Limited Codex Editions look cool and what not.... but add in the Forgeworld Units to it.... and I will buy those. 

Even though I stopped playing my guard when I lost codex options.... I plan on blowing off the dust again soon.

FAQ's and Errata


Page 76 – Strength from Death Add the following paragraph: ‘Matched Play: If you are playing a matched play game, a unit from your army cannot make a Soulburst action if a friendly unit has already made the same Soulburst action during your turn.
