FAQ Changes announced so far…
Psychic focus is basically everything we saw before, with a few important distinctions. The warp charge value caps out at 11, so you’ll always be able to have a chance to cast it, and past a certain point, if it does go off you are getting the d6 Smite. Thousand Sons and Grey Knights are exempt, so they’ll always be able to smite on a 5+, which is ultimately probably for the best.
More Command Points for battalions and brigades
The command points boost is going to help a lot of armies, especially since a lot of the newer Codexes are very Command Point starved.
Guilliman, Dark Reapers, and Hive Tyrants point increase
Guilliman: 400 Points
Dark Reapers: 12 points per model
Hive Tyrants: 190 (with wings)
Rule of Three
BETA RULES Proposed:
Feedback desired for possible inclusion in Chapter Approved:
Battle Forged Army Keywords: Imperium, Chaos, Aeldari, Tyranid Keywords cannot be used to make detachments. (Units like Sisters of Silence, Assasins, and some other excepted from this proposed rule). This is now the Battle Brothers rule:
First Turn Limitations: 50% of the army must be on the table (by points and power level). Deepstrikers can only arrive in your deployment zone (they can arrive anywhere on the turn on turns 2+)
