    Spoilers:

    -Rhinos buffed.
    -Lash not changed (maybe a little).
    -Ahriman nerfed.
    -Demon Princes buffed.

    Quick find! Thanks.

    I find it odd that they commented on giving bikers the Mark of Nurgle, but not the Mark of Tzeentch? Also interesting that Wings don't change the unit/model classification, meaning models with wings can fit in a transport?

    Bahaha, brilliant, time to start owning people with lash more than usual!

    Also, winged models hiding in rhinos could be an excellent manuever.

    Forward 12", pop smoke, next turn disembark 2", jump 12", charge 6". with the option of lashing someone on the way. A duo of sorcerors or a sorceror + lord combo here could be evil! I know it's only a bonus 2" on usual movement, but you get the benefit of being hidden inside a metal box on the way there.
    If I've replied, i've probably used Italics...

    Hmmm, missing out on the Tz Biker's save is interesting. I take as confirmation that it won't br an invun save when 5th ed comes out, it'll be a coversave, so there's no need to mention it.

    All will be solved soon...

    Now, I don't have my codex here in front of me, but this is kind of bothering me:

    Doesn't Ahriman's codex entry say specifically that he may cast 3 shooting spells a turn? I thought that that was one of his major perks, or am I not remembering correctly?

    If so, did the FAQ just blatantly remove an ability from Ahriman, or is GW just forgetful and didn't realise that Ahriman CAN do this (if he could to begin with), because the way its written it seems to be a reminder.

    There's no need to comment on tzeentch bikers as i's pretty clear in the book, all the confusion comes from people reading too much in it, bikers on themselves do not have an invulnerable save so they gain only the 5+.

    Ahriman didn't get nerfed. He can still do what he always did. He still can shoot 3 times in the shooting phase, once with bolt of change, once with doom bolt, and once with wind of chaos.

    Kharn is the one who got nerfed, no longer able to hit skimmers or moving vechicles on a +2.

    Frankly I'm more shocked with the eldar FAQ. Specificaly the fact that according to the FAW warp spiders can deep strike and then move in the assault phase in the same turn, directaly contradicting the deep strike rules in the main rule book.

    Also I'm not sure that the lack of comment on the tzeench ability with turbo boosting has anything to do with 5th ed. I think it's much more likely just another thing they missed. Arn't all the books supost to get an actual 5th ed FAQ when it comes out anyway?

    Agreed. And don't forget Autarch's being able to join and deep strike with a unit of Aspect Warriors (if appropriately equipped). I would very seriously consider taking a Terminaotr Lord/Sorceror if I knew he would reliably come in with a unit of Terminaotrs.

    It seems the FAQ really did nothing to us, other than get non-chaos players to back off. :p
    Nurgle, the freshmaker.

    I don't think rhinos were buffed, Ahriman nerfed or Daemon Princes buffed, I think it just clarified somethings that were already there (or should have been).
