The other day I was playing against an Elysian Drop Troop-list. While looking at the entries, my opponent and I noticed that some things were quite different from the normal IG codex.
We wandered if there is a FAQ/Errata for any of the Forge World: Imperial Armour Books. I looked on the site, but couldn't find any.

Do any of you know?

There are FAQs in the download section, http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/News/Downloads.html, and for IA8 specifically here http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Downloads/Product/PDF/I/IA8QandA.pdf

Hope you find what you're looking for.

If the FAQ you're after isn't on that page, then they haven't produced one yet.

it's FW, plenty of things ARE different to codex IG.

They don't do erratas for everything, what they do instead are:
1)Glory in their typos,a s there are so many
2) Expect you to use some common sense
3) Issue provisional rules, and listen to the feedback, so catching the worst of the point/nonsensical rules issues
4) Occasionally issue updated lists, as a PDF.

yeah, basically the rules sent out by forgeworld generally require a little more work on the part of the player to get going properly. which doesn't mean that they can't be fun, but they weren't really made for serious play, which is why forgeworld rules are rarely seen in a competitive environment.

Also note that the old Elysian list from IA3 has been replaced by the list in IA8 which is much more recognisable as derived from the IG Codex.

was there any official statement out of them to that effect?

Pretty much the consensus that the newest book takes precedence over the older one. You are supposed to always use the the most up to date rules for your army.

No official word to my knowledge but more of a "thats just the way things work"

Yes. You can see it if you open IA8 to the table of contents.

As you said yourself, they require a bit more work by the player, so I wouldn't be surprised if they left it to Common Sense :P

Thanks. I couldn't find the 'News'-section, that was the problem. You would think it was at the top of the page. :rolleyes:
