Welcome to Librarium Online!
GW updated 40k FAQ for main book, apocalypse, BA, chaos, CSM, GK, DA, DE, Eldar, IG, orks and some nice Necrons rulings...
Warhammer 40,000 Frequently Asked Questions: Page 2 | Errata and FAQ Articles | Gaming and Collecting Articles | Games Workshop
FAQs for everyone, except sisters, templars, and tau.
Combat squads splitting while deepstriking/infiltrating (going to see more BA vanguard around where I play)
Lash of submission needs to roll to hit. Eldritch storm does also. JotWW doesn't, and jetbikes can still fall into the hole somehow.
Impaler cannons ignore smoke, psychic cover saves, kustom force fields, etc.
Tervigons pass on their Brood Progenitor rule to ICs joined to termigant units ... and those ICs can be wounded when the tervigon dies.
Plus a lot of necron stuff - no more conga lines
Chaos Marines players are going to hate their new FAQ; nerfs for Lash & Warptime among other things. Also Abaddon & Typhus can stab themselves with their daemon weapons now.
GW seems to hate chaos in 40k as of late...
Plus, he's Abby! How stupid to think that the Warmaster, the guy who can make other daemons quake in their boots, will now decide to randomly fall on his own sword?!
Sure it's spliting hairs thin, but considering his cost and how bad the current book is, it was a bone I never felt bad throwing to CSM players who would invest in an almost 300pts character!
Daemons laughably also took a nerf; The Masque is now a near-useless entry. Yay! she can pavane 3 times a turn! But can only move a unit once, and is still a two wound/T3 NON independent character with only a 5++!!! (unlike every other named 'herald' type character who can at least hide out in a unit - good job there fixing her up Gee-Dub!)
She can almost work in a friendly list, but seriously, to be a viable choice in 40k she needs to be able to join a unit... (she's absolutely broken in fantasy though, but then you can say that about the army in general!)
Of course the only time i've faced Abby he deepstruck in on the 2nd turn, mishapped, and vanished along with a full squad of terminators. You know what they say about Abaddon and competence...
Actually where is the nerf here? It's rules as written - pavane works once per turn.
Rather, the fact she's still a T3/W2 single model unit that dies to a stiff breeze while every other named Herald gets the IC treatment that makes her pretty pathetic. A 3++ isn't going to save much when most things only need a 3+ at worst to hurt her, and all for the rediculous cost of a basic Space Marine Captain!
Oh, and Dark Ex still removes the mark of chaos on a prince as an added laugh!
Pretty straight forward stuff for Eldar.
Eldrich storm doesn't need to roll to hit exactly, it just confirms that it scatters since it's a blast. I played it like this anyway. Knew you couldn't tank shock or ram with Star Engines since that's specifically in the movement phase.
IG psyker squads can use Weaken Resolve on units locked in combat now? Wow, that's...almost useful. Too bad I have to win a round of ongoing combat before I care.

Damn, sucks to be a Chaos player, ah well. Warptime just makes no sense, sigh, looks like I'm gonna take Khorne Daemon Princes now....Least theres a hint of Tau on the Horizon.
One shall stand, and one shall fall.
