2010 update?
« on: November 09, 2010, 03:38:28 PM »
Hey guys, I hate to point this out, but we are closing in on the end of 2010, and we have not heard much in the ways of progress on the 2010 faq.  Can we get an update from the HA?

The Draft FAQ/Errata is pretty much in its final form, subject to a few additional tweaks. We're trying to get some things sorted (and pushed through here on the forum) before we get it cemented shut. We will probably make this thing final no later than the first week of December. I know that sounds a bit gun-shy, but we all realize how important this document is, and I'm sure we would all like for it to be more right than fast.

And then fingers crossed on how fast GW uploads it to their website. If you need some persuasive assistance to speed up GW give us a call. heh heh.

Excellent because Adepticon's BFG tournament (Sunday April 3) will be using the 2010 FAQ.

Hi everyone!! There’s a big set of updates today!  If you want to get to it, click the link below.

Biggie: The updated 2010 FAQ/Errata is FINALLY on the street! We listened, and there are a LOT of small detail changes and additions here. Most of it will make lots of people happy, some of it may not. PLEASE take some time to pick this thing apart. It's still a draft, so if there’s something important we missed, please let us know! We're hoping to have it cemented shut by Christmas.

I've just taken a quick look at the new powers of chaos PDF (liking the new Khorne battlebarge and cruiser options) but there's just one thing:

Most likely a typographical error (damn cut and paste!) but the Chaos space hulk has two lots of port weapons entries.  I'm assuming guns, torpedoes and launch bays on both sides right?

Cheers,

It would be kinda interesting to have asymetrical ships, wouldnt it?  :p

Would it ever, I might just give it a run as it is for a giggle.

Special rule:  letting off all your portside guns at once allows the space hulk to move 10cm forward and 1cm to the right as a result of recoil during its next movement phase  ;D.

I have actually been doing a lot of thinking about asymmetrical ships/fleets (ie, xenos ships). I didn't want to say anything till I had them modelled, but that might never happen.

The only immediate criticism I can think of is TLDR - Too long, didn't read. It's as long as the basic rules!

At the very least it needs a summary sheet of all the rulings, and at best it needs to be a v1.6 rulebook with the rulings fully integrated.

And Sig, Fra'al right?  Had the same thought :)

TLDR - Too long, didn't read.

Actually, I read as much as I could manage whilst at work, but still didn't get beyond p8.

With the drafts I only skim the fluff. Stats first, in relation to the specific ship fluff.
