Which document are these in? Might be being a cretin but can't find them.

I have got the updated erratas + designers commentary, but where are updated points?

Damn I can't believe they dropped the points on Bloodthirsters, do GW just want me to buy Skarbrand and x3 Bloodthirsters and be done with it?

Darn was really hoping for a change to our battleline. Still can’t complain I guess, I figured priests would go up in price so then staying the same is nice.

Personally I'm not complaining really, this frees up the exact 20 points I needed to try a Skullgrinder and additional priest instead of my Juggerlord.

So Slaughterpriest stayed the same and the Bloodthirsters all got cheaper. And Slaanesh got changed to Japanese, they now need to learn a new language! I'd call that a big win.

Of course they do, and for added convenience they added 30% to the real life price tag at the same time.

No points increases (except Valkia) and some point decreases.

Can't complain really.

I wonder if double bloodsecrator is the way to go now, I mean at 120 he's pretty damn great support piece in the whole game.

 

Also some relevant FAQ updates.

I feel like the double bloodsecrator could find a place in quite a few lists, however I feel more as if the lists where he was not easy enough to fit in / not needed enough he is now a lot more of an attractive choice.

Good, fair changes in all really.

I does bug me though how Bloodreavers got to stay at 70.

I was kinda hoping they’d drop. But the Bloodsecrator drop evens things out for me, since I seldom take more than 2 MSUs of reavers to use as screens anyway.

Regarding Repears of Vengeance and the command ability Leave None Alive:

If I took RoV as my Slaughterhost with Archaon in my list, under what circumstances could I trigger this command ability on Archaon?

Would he need to be within 8 inches of a non named RoV daemon?

Or, seeing as he would gain the RoV keyword too, is it legit to use it on him even if he is going solo?

To me our point changes just opened up crazy list building capabilities. Bloodthirsters dropping as much as they did was incredibly unexpected and that means you can stuff them in more lists. I absolutely did not expect the Bloodsecrator to drop to 120 as well, that means I can upgrade my Mighty Lord to a Daemon Prince now in most of my lists.

So since everyone were playing UF and secrator already basically every list got a free CP.

I also have a feeling cannons are good enough at 130.

He just gets the host CP ability.

So he can use it by himself then? No buddy daemon necessary?

Yep, because he is a khorne daemon

I wonder. What if skullcannons should be taken not as "cannons" but as "shooting chariots". Riding on flanks, shooting and hacking light cavalry, archers and chaff? In a unit of two-three?

This is good news. I suspected its the case, I just find that particular command ability worded in such a weird way that it gave me a bit of a pause for thought.

They keep turning the screws, wich are:

Warscrolls
Point cost
Rule editions

to gain $, becasue 60.000.000 ( after tax, production cost, wages, rental fees, etc. )  isn't just enough per year.

Really, what i see is, that they just change the rules & stuff that much, to make people buy, what they want you to buy. It is not important what you actually want, it is important what they want you to want.

Well it's always up to the individual isn't it. I for one am certainly not gonna spend hundreds of euros on Bloodthirsters just because they are gonna be cheaper ingame for the next 6-12 months.

Would you prefer static points then, or?
