    NEW High Elves FAQ!

    Hello all,

    Whilst browsing the new GW UK site i looked up the High elves FAQ again...
    And it is different to the one published earlier this year. This one is dated october 2008, so brand new.

    There is only one big change actually, the entire FAQ is the same exept for the explanation of what happens with multiple ASF models fight eachother whilst one wields a Great Weapon.

    It used to say:
    "In this case the model with the Great Weapon strikes last. Effectively the two always strike first rules would cancel eachother out."

    Now it says:

    "When two models with the ASF rule are fighting, they will strike in descending Initiative order, rolling a dice in case of same Initiative. All other factors, such as charging,
    great weapons, etc., are ignored, because they have already been bypassed by the ASF rule. "

    Thought i would share this here.

    PS.
    Here is a link to the FAQ page on the new site:

    Hmm this second FAQ actually appeared several months ago and was discussed. I'm not sure why it is dated october 08 now, maybe it is only just hitting websites in most countries. If that is the only change that is.

    It was at GW Canada that it first appeared and at the time the FAQ's were different at different websites.

    It made me laugh, I think that assasin's were a big part of them rethinking their decision, they wanted assasin's to strike before everyone but Tyrion so gave him initiative 10 and ASF but their FAQ messed him up a bit when playing HE.

    By the way I hate assasins, their 5 to 7 attacks wreck havoc with our soft fast troops, and their hiddenness makes me do stupid things when I think they are in an army.
    Cheers Allonairre

    But yes that is the Canada fAQ is the one i compared this "new" one to.


    Aaah the only reason i would aver play our dark kin... assasins
    They are very evil but it is best to ignore them in my experience. Stick to you're battle plan and don't let a assasin ruin it, how difficult it may be.

    Hope it helps

    This has been around for several months, as Strewart indicated, we got hold of it on the GW Canada webs-ite dated, I believe August 2008. What it does is clarify the ASF rule in regards to the rulebook. If the rulebook had given the same examples, then there would be no issue...
