I was reading a battle report with the new 5th edition rules (australia) where the defiler shot at some ultramarine target and it scattered 8 but was reduced to 4 because of its BS.
The defiler has 3 BS though because of demonic possession, they mentioned that because of the 4 BS, the shot JUST landed on some marines and terminators, but surely the guys down at white dwarf would know the BS of one of the coolest chaos models EVER!? right?!
Is this a typo that might be fixed in errata or what?
And I've also never understood why it has 3 WS, its a daemon stuck in a machine, it should be BETTER at close combat than ever before, not worse.
Anyway this was all I had to say.
The usual reason (excuse) given for oopses in batreps is that everyone is human, and to err is human, therefore we can expect the odd error because the players are human. Having said that, fundamental things like BS etc should be so ingrained into the players that mistakes like this shouldn't really be made.

Well I know it off by heart, and I'm new to this whole game, these guys LIVE, BREATHE and EAT warhammer, they should know the basics.
Im pretty much a 40k novice too, but even I thought Gav Thorpe's army selection was a bit poo.
Getting the BS of a defiler wrong is pretty bad, but just goes to show that even the professionals forget their army roster in the middle of the game (or maybe Thorpe was cheating)
PLAN CLAN MAN!!

hahaha a seasoned professional warhammer geek, "forgets" his stat line of the defiler. SIFCAKES!
Theres no excuse for that, I guess its another victory for the lame smurfs of ultamar!
Oh no, they forgot the BS of a defiler!
Buhu... Big deal, since it wasn't a deciding game in a tournament. Then maybe it could have been something to cry about...
Currently painting the Waaagh! of Warboss Borboss - Goff and Evil Sunz warband
I was mainly trying to see if there was some sort of errata that I had missed changing their BS back to 4... If they want to get things wrong then power to them, but I thought I was missing out on something.
Why do you care? WD Battle reports are fixed anyway.
Gav thorpes army selection always sucks because he doesnt know how to play the game.
I care because that 1 BS makes a difference when firing say... a lascannon I paid 20 points for.
Nevermind then forget I made the topic then
As much as I love reading battle reports, they are only another means for GW to advertise armies of different types.
That being said it was only a mistake, these things happen. If anything on the defiler, or anything else, was changed it would be in the latest errata/faq updates on the website.
