Warhammer 40,000 8th Edition rules issues

8th edition Warhammer 40,000 is out and it looks really fun! Of course there’s a number of rules issues and that’s where this page comes in. Here I’ve put together a list of questions that I have emailed the GW FAQ team (gamefaqs@gwplc.com).

Note: due to the amount of spam my blog is getting, I may have to lock this thread down, but I hope not.

 

General

Q) Several datasheets list one unit size, but the points values table lists another. For example, Tyrant Guard are 3-6 on the datasheet, but 1-3 at the back and Deathwatch bikers are 3-6 on the datasheet and 1-5 at the back. Does this simply mean that open and narrative play use the datasheet, while matched play uses the ‘models per unit’ values at the back?

Q) How exactly is line of sight done now? Can a model shoot from foot to wing-tip and other interesting situations? Can a model draw line of sight through the legs of an enemy model in order to shoot a unit behind that model?

Q) If a unit charges from 10″ away, does this mean that weapons can only fire if their range is 10″ or more?

Q) BRB page 242 says “if you are using points” you must pay for the minimum number of models, however it doesn’t specify if that’s power points or match play points. Xenos 2 index page 126 indicates you can have one unit that’s undersized and you only pay for the models. If I’m playing matched play, what’s the correct rule regarding paying points for undersized units?

 

 

Tyranids

Q) If a unit can fire twice, for example Exocrine and Tyrannofex, how exactly does this work? Does the unit shoot once, and then get to select any target (including the first) and shoot a second time? Or does the unit have to fire twice at the same target?

Q) If a Tyrannofex is using a Rupture cannon and both shots hit, can two separate models be killed by the shots at -4 AP and D6 damage?

Q) The Sporocyst datasheet lists Spore node on the table, but it’s not listed as a weapon and there’s no points value. Should we assume it’s a 0-point weapon for the Sporocyst?

Q) Tyranid warriors can take spinefists, but there’s no points value listed at the back. How much do they cost for Tyranid warriors?

Q) If a unit is out of Synapse and the closest enemy unit is engaged, does this prevent that unit from shooting?

Q) Does Onslaught allow a Mawloc to charge in the turn it uses Terror from the Deep?

Q) Why did Brainleech Devourers not double their number of Attacks when almost all other twin-linked weapons doubled their number of Attacks? Seeing it’s only 1 damage, it could have kept had 6 attacks per gun, but now it’s utterly terrible.

Q) The Tervigon datasheet shows Massive crushing claws has 3 AP, but the summary at the back shows -3. Is -3 correct?

Q) Does Old One Eye’s Alpha Leader improve all units with the Carnifex keyword, including itself and Stone crusher carnifexes, or does it only buff the ‘Carnifexes’ entry on page 104 of the index?

Q) The Trygon pays 60 points for having three pairs of Massive scything talons, while the Tervigon and Maleceptor pay 22 points for having a single pair. This seems like a lot of points for a single bonus attack. Many people believe that each pair grants an extra attack. What’s the correct interpretation? If the only benefit is one single attack, why are they so expensive?

Q) Are the Monstrous rending claws meant to be free for Hive Tyrants?

Q) If a unit says “It can also fire stinger salvoes” is this an optional or a compulsory weapon?

Q) If a unit of Biovores are charged and they create spore mines, can this potentially make the charge impossible as the units cannot charge through the spore mines?

Q) The Mawloc’s datasheet doesn’t say anything about Toxin sacs, but page 139 shows they can pay 1 point for them. Which is correct?

Q) The Mawloc’s rules allow it to inflict mortal wounds on a unit that can Fly. Is that correct?

 

Tyranids – Foregeworld

Q) The Malanthrope seems to protect models within 3″ when I believe it should protect units if any of their models are within 3″. Is that correct?

Q) The Malanthrope is worth 10 power, or 90 points. It seems like it should be 5 power and 90 points, or 10 power and 190 points. Can you please confirm what the correct values are?

Q) Dimachaeon’s graping talons and thorax spine-maw state that “each wound roll of 6+ made with the weapon is resolved at Strength x2 and Damage D6”. Doubling the strength after a 6 is rolled to wound doesn’t make sense. Should that rule be there? Or should that result be on a 6+ to hit?

Q) Stone crusher carnifexes have a weapon option Bio-flail, but its rules are confusing. Are those attacks meant to be free attacks that it makes in addition to its other attacks?

Q) Massive scything talons seems to be unsure if it’s a single talon, or a pair of talons. The Barbed Hierodule model has one pair of scythed talons, while the Scythed Hierodule model has two pairs. I believe the entries should be changed to a pair, the Barbed Hierodule should only have one pair and the Scythed  Hierodule should have two pairs. Other changes may be needed to other units.

Q) The Hierophant’s BS is 3. Should this be 3+?

 

Genestealer Cults

Q) Should the Purestrain Genestealers really be that much more expensive that the Tyranids Genestealers?

 

Inquisition

Q) Considering Acolytes are under 10 points, are they meant to have 3 Wounds each or is that a typo?

  • Best you can see in the morning !

  • Hi, after reading this amazing post i am as well glad to share my experience here with mates.

  • Maybe you meant the whole time for the post to
    be about not letting doubts stop you from following your dreams
    and quitting your day task, however readers scanning subheads will not understand that.

    They will merely feel baffled. If you are noting numerous “methods,” “actions,” “techniques,” “signs,” etc., to attain what
    the heading of the post promises, keep the format constant.|
    Bloggers neglect this all the time, however it’s easy to fix as soon as you’re aware
    of it. If you separate your subheads from the post
    and list them back to back, you can see if any roaming from the course.

    State your post is called “12 Ways to Treat Sleeping Disorders”
    and you have a subhead for each of the 12 ways.|
    Let’s state your first few subheads read as follows:
    Workout Every Early Morning Prevent Caffeine Like the Plague Wake Up at the Same Time Everyday There is Nothing More Sleep-Inducing Than Nighttime Meditation Something there feel a little off?
    The first 3 subheads begin with an action verb instructing readers what to do.|
    However then the fourth subhead unexpectedly alters the format and breaks
    the flow. It doesn’t begin with a verb and it’s much longer than the others.
    This inconsistency might seem fairly innocent, however it’s distracting to readers.
    Let’s face it, readers today are info-holics.
    We all are. So exhausted old recommendations isn’t going to suffice.|
    My advice? Note your primary points and see if you can add a special perspective, experience, or twist to them.
    Something readers aren’t expecting. What belief systems have you learned to challenge?
    What do you understand that many people do not?
    How can you shed brand-new light on an old issue?

    What approaches do you use that others will not know about?
    You don’t wish to go overboard simply for the sake of adding shock worth.|
    However regurgitating old guidance doesn’t challenge you as a writer, nor does it inform your audience.
    So pour your readers a little espresso for their info-hangover by delivering
    the unanticipated. Many short articles have been discussed
    blogging, but how many have actually called you out for being dumb or informed you to change your friends ?!
    Jon does just that by knocking you over the head with some
    hard truth bombs about what it requires to make it as a blog writer.

  • After looking over a few of the articles on your web site, I truly appreciate
    your technique of blogging. I book-marked it to my bookmark site list and
    will be checking back in the near future. Please check out my website as well and

    I wonder how a lot effort you put to create this sort of fantastic informative site.

  • Maybe you planned all along for the post to be about not letting doubts
    stop you from following your dreams and quitting your day task, however readers
    scanning subheads will not understand that. They
    will just feel baffled. If you are noting numerous “ways,” “steps,” “methods,”
    “indications,” etc., to accomplish what the heading of
    the post assures, keep the format consistent.|
    Bloggers ignore this all the time, however it’s simple to repair when you understand
    it. If you separate your subheads from the post and list
    them back to back, you can see if any roaming from the course.
    Say your post is called “12 Ways to Cure Insomnia” and you have a
    subhead for each of the 12 ways.|
    Let’s state your very first couple of subheads
    check out as follows: Workout Every Morning Avoid Caffeine Like the Plague Awaken at the Very
    Same Time Everyday There is Nothing More Sleep-Inducing Than Evening Meditation Something
    there feel a little off? The first three subheads start with an action verb advising readers what to do.|
    However then the fourth subhead all of a sudden alters the format and breaks the circulation. It
    does not begin with a verb and it’s much longer than the others.
    This inconsistency may seem fairly innocent, but
    it’s distracting to readers. Let’s face it, readers today are info-holics.
    All of us are. So exhausted old guidance isn’t going to suffice.|

    You do not wish to overdo it simply for the sake of
    adding shock value.|
    However throwing up old guidance doesn’t challenge you
    as a writer, nor does it inform your audience. So put your readers a little espresso for their info-hangover by providing the unforeseen. Many posts have actually
    been discussed blogging, however how lots of have actually
    called you out for being dumb or told you to change your buddies ?!
