As a skaven player, you got to keep in touch with your second army book.. err I mean the skaven FAQ. Clearly marking out that sometimes it's better to do it right the first time.
Anyway, I like the new focus on questions rather than erratas/amendments, as the latter might be hard to read the effects of at a glance. For instance the slave-randomization thing.
Some things I'd like to highlight in this post though:
- Templates work as in the rulebook against the bell/furnace. Always played it as such, but not all the TO:s in my region. Good to have fixed rules.
- Death globe on a globadier champion may be thrown into combat and hits are not randomized as it is a template. Well I thought I couldn't throw it into combat at all. Might be worth trying sometime I guess.
- Plague banner now allows rerolls on the furnace crew. This is quite big. I for one like my furnace unit narrow and as such the plague banner never were a feasible option. Now it is.
- Cannon shots are not stopped by not killing a monstrous thing. I like this ruling and was as I played it. There were so much strange situations with the ball stopping and then exploding. Anyway, same here, I like fixed rules and not having to read the upcoming tournie-pack to know which rules I were to play.
On another note. I'm looking forward to get a storm of magic game off with some mates and down a couple of beers. If we get around to do it, I'll sure post some pics and reflections. You haven't forgetten about SoM yet have you? ;)
