Default Oohh look at GW giving us gamers 'advice'

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/co...000009&start=1
I thought that this was intresting (in a funny way). Most of the stuff we came up with when the 5th edition rumors started. Anyways I find it intresting they don't update anything for like three years on the site then boom 5th comes and then updates come everyday. Wow I wish they posted more articles more often (adds humor to my life)........

Really? I thought it was interesting in an interesting way. And I thought it was a brief but good analysis of the 5th edition changes.

Because the people on this site are exceptional gamers and this forum is just great that way. Unfortunately, not all gamers have the luxury of being a member on such a great site.

Which site are you visiting? There are updates every month or so. If you look at Warhammer and Lord of the Rings too, there are updates even more frequently. Unfortunately, it's not very balanced. For example, Dark Eldar, Imperial Guard, and the Inquisition pages have been pretty much abandoned for the last year or so. :-\

I wish they did too...but because I enjoy most of them - especially the modeling and painting articles. It would be nice to see some special stuff like scenarios or campaign trees as well.

Not sure if the UK site has Black Gobo still but they had articles every month and every time a codex is release they pump out articles. Oh ya and lets not forget WHITE DWARF.

Hehe- I read the Tau section of the article.. and apparently Adam Troke isnt aware of certain lousy FAQ rulings regarding Pathfinders- like for instance: their Devilfish does NOT get the scout ability!

Im not sure about the "outflank" rule... but if it means "deploy from the side of the tables".. then I'd bet only the pathfinders may do that- and not their transport.

The IG section has some good propaganda. (giving bad tactics and making it sounds good)

For tau they should have said.

Hide and seek.

Good luck finding cover to JSJ...lolz.

The FAQ has been superceded by the 5th edition rulebook. Scout IS conferred onto a unit's dedicated transport.
