GW posted a whole bunch of new and updated FAQs here.  Primarily they are to bring supplement Space Marine chapters in line with the new codex until they have their supplements published, but there are some changes for the Xenos as well (which apparently pisses a lot of them off).

As a Dark Angel player, I am really excited about the changes:
  • Inner Circle Infantry, effectively, all have the Transhuman stratagem
  • Deathwing Command Squads can legitimately protect characters
  • Apothecaries don't bring people back from the dead, but do give a FNP to units
  • The Nephilim Jetfighter is a legitimate Air Superiority Fighter now
  • Dark Talon Rift Cannon?  Yeah... I had to change my pants for that one.
  • Talonmasters are Lieutenants, and can share slots with other Lts


There are some glaring omissions that I think need to be addressed, though.  Sammael, for instance, has apparently lost his Land Speeder; and the Deathwing Ancient is no longer a thing... except for the Relic banner that says it can only be taken by a Deathwing Ancient...

Gotta love GW proofreading
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

From the Imperial Guard perspective, it's just Heavy Bolters everywhere, all the time now, ain't it?

On the Deathwatch front, I like how they differentiated the Kill Teams. But it also drives me nuts because now I have to rebuild my whole damned army.

My space wolves got some pretty good buffs. Wulfin though lost their Feel no pain, but now always count as being in the assault doctraine, and always count as charging, so they are pretty mean! Thunderwolves being able to run and charge, and getting an extra wound is huge!

I just reread through the description at the top of the PDFs.  Apparently I missed the part where everything included was the extent of what was available for the Chapter until their supplement was released.

You know what was missed for the Dark Angels?  Weapons of the Dark Age.

GML is not a happy camper now...
