Updated FAQs and Boots on the Ground

With the release of Warhammer 40,000, our hard-working rules writers haven’t stopped looking for ways to make the game even better. We’ve been listening to your feedback as well as talking with our team of playtesters to find out what’s working in the new edition and what needs some adjustment or clarification. Today, we’re updating the FAQs, as well as making some changes to Flyers in matched play games.

Firstly, we’re providing an updated series of FAQs; like the previous versions, these are designed to make your games run more smoothly and incorporate some of the most raised questions from you guys on Facebook, and from our dedicated playtesting team.

Flyers have also been adjusted in light of some feedback from your matched play games. The design team want Warhammer 40,000 to be as fun as possible for as many players as possible, but we’ve noticed that a couple of army lists and certain units were crowding out other options. Now you’ll need to have feet on the ground (or tentacles, hooves, claws, or tracks) to win your games. Flyers are just as powerful as they were before, but now players are encouraged to take more diverse and unusual armies. It’s worth noting that this change only applies to matched play, and in open and narrative play, you’re still as free as ever to reenact dogfights and aerial battles with sky-fleets of your own – Death from the Skies, in the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook, even has special rules for this.

If you’ve got any more questions, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page and we’ll submit them to the Rules team for review for the next round of FAQs – in the meantime, enjoy your games!
