Each update is split into three sections: Errata, Amendments,and ‘Frequently Asked Questions’. The Errata corrects anymistakes in the book, while the Amendments bring the book upto date with the latest version of the rules. The FrequentlyAsked Questions (or ‘FAQ’) section answers commonly askedquestions about the rules. Although you can mark correctionsdirectly in your army book, this is by no means necessary – just keep a copy of the update with your army book.

Really disappointed, I was actually hoping for some cool stuff not just the old FAQ and a few slight changes, which look to be on the negative side. *sadface*
Does the Doom Driver count as a Stone thrower now? or what?
Pretty sure it's the same as it always was, although I'd love a S5 small blast if I'm wrong.
doomdiver is insanely good now with its low points being one of the few that can just blast through heavy knights.
I'd say bring 2 just because we can!

I hear they are going to be releasing packs of cards that update each of the army specific spells "soon".
The beastmen pack was the first one. Hopefully waaagh will be next!!
Mind linking that rumor? Because over on Warseer they said the Lores will not be updated in any way and the deck didn't do anything to the Beastmen one.
Aye, it didn't. If you look at the picture of the Beastmen magic deck on the website, you can see the print at the bottom (where the Lore Attribute rules are put) says something like "This Lore has no Lore Attribute". If they were updating them they would've surely given it a Lore Attribute, right?
