hmm
Page 117 – Champion Equipment
Change the second heading to read:
‘One of the champion’s weapons can be chosen from the
following list:’
is this a buff?
Snip20170820_1.png
So in the dex, you could wither take 2 weapons from the first list OR take A (1) weapon from the second list
so now we can take 2 weapons, either 2 from list 1 or 1 from each list (or just 1 weapon from either list, or no weapons...) ?
wither = either^

It's like SM sgt equipment now. You can take two total and one can be from the bottom list

yeh
sadly they didnt change Chosen to allow them to take matching wargear to the models from the DV box
but i guess we can at least use them using the DV rules... but it forces them to be Crimson Slaughter
both dexes have had teir +1 inv spell limited to a max of 3+
which does nothing for chaos tbh but i think thats a nerf to GK cos they had a char they could bump to 2+ previously

Yeah. The invulnerable limit was good thing

tbh the chaos faq is all good stuff

aye they just replicated the errata from the index with regards to this
the boon strat change is odd
by removing the ability to apply it do daemons it makes it so you can use it on a lord/sorc on disc
because the disc gives the unit the daemon keyword

I would expect that they meant you can't use it on Characters from the DAEMON faction (which makes sense). However, by having both a Faction keyword and normal keyword of DAEMON, they've basically screwed themselves.
giving the lord a godmount only gives the keyword, not the faction keyword.

yeh
that was suppose to say "cant use it on a lord/blah", realised I put "can"
the 40k guy on their FB group just told someone that index only using cant get legion traits
shame the community site says then can
index only units^

Scorpion had its first outing yesterday
It's entirely worth 675pts
both games (1W/1L) it made back its points values, though the army around it may need tweaking
hemlocks also continue to be MVP grade

WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Aug 20 2017 22:06 UTC
though it being worth 675 is mostly down to the other eldar anti-tank options being pretty bad
guardians with bright lance: 105pts
vyper with single bright lance: 96pts
Wasp: 130pts for 2x bright lance
Fire Prism: 186 pts for basically just the one gun
War Walkers: 101pts for 2 BL
and of course the wave serpent can mount 2 for 172, whcih is why it kicks the FP's ass
James
@skonk
Aug 20 2017 22:11 UTC
do you run as pure eldar rather than ynari?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Aug 20 2017 22:11 UTC
yes
I run saim-hann style
James
@skonk
Aug 20 2017 22:12 UTC
apparently that troops getting obsec thing is going to exclude ynari
which i find odd
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Aug 20 2017 22:13 UTC
since I don't like anything without the FLY keyword, the scorpion and shining spears are the most cost-effective tank hunters I can run besides wave serpents and wasps
James
@skonk
Aug 20 2017 22:13 UTC
ah :)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Aug 20 2017 22:13 UTC
well
or hemlocks, but I prefer using them to hunt elite infantry
to give you the idea:
1x Jetlock
2x Jetseer
1x Vyper /w Bright Lance
15x Windriders with Shuriken Cannons
2x Wasp Assault Walkers (both dual AML)
2x Hemlock Wraithfighters
2x Fireprism
1x Nightspinner
1x Scorpion Type II
I'm going to convert myself some shining spears using the windrider models and some cold one knights, since I don't like the old shining spear models at all
