As a Christmas treat, PP have released a part errata, part FAQ for Warmachine and Hoards

and issues some designers notes to go with why they made the changes.

My question is - why now? I know the community has been a bit grumpy about some of the moves PP have been making of late, but this does seem to ease some of them - in that it now makes it perfectly ok to have all of the most up to date rules for models free. Not sure about the break from cards for me but I think that's to push the online component they are introducing.

What do people think of the changes? Will it bring any difference to how to play for you?
