3 Minute Read
Apr 29 2019

The time is NOW! Games Workshop has just released the new Warhammer 40,000 FAQ.

We’ve been waiting to see the changes and they are finally here. The BIG FAQ update has arrived and just about every army in the game has gotten a look or two. Check this out:

via Warhammer Community

Robin Cruddance: So, what does this update contain? Well, the first thing we have done is to update our FAQ and Errata documents to take into account any new questions that have been raised since their last update (so if you have a question about a specific army, make sure you check out the Errata and FAQ document for that army’s codex). These updates include some changes to the core Warhammer 40,000 rules and some further clarifications of how certain rules work – the most notable changes and clarifications are the first things detailed in the Designer’s Commentary (see below).

Next, we have looked at all the beta rules introduced in the last update and, after making some changes to incorporate your feedback, have finalised those rules. Finally, we have made a handful of changes to certain rules to help address some balance issues that are consistently being raised by the community. These can be found at the end of the document.


  • Updated FAQ
  • Updated Errata
  • Changes to core Warhammer 40,000 rules and clarifications
  • Beta Rules updated/finalized
  • Balance changes

Enough with the teasers – go check it out for yourself!

And there is SOOO much more. We haven’t even begun to dig into the codexes and those FAQs. Get ready for a BIG shake-up folks.


The FAQ is here – Stay tuned for more!
