Q: Do models chosen from Codex: Chaos Daemons and / or the White Dwarf, August 2012, Codex: Chaos Daemons official update have the Daemon special rule from the Warhammer 40,000 Rulebook, or do they have the Daemon army special rule from Codex: Chaos Daemons? (p27)
A: All models from Codex: Chaos Daemons and/or the White Dwarf, August 2012, Codex: Daemons official update have the Daemon army special rule listed in Codex: Chaos Daemons with the addition of the Fear special rule from the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook and a 5+ invulnerable save.So, daemons get the best of both worlds: fear from the rulebook, eternal warrior and everything else from the Daemons codex. Given the space marine heavy meta-game, fear won't be doing much for us, but its all good.
Yet, there's many unresolved questions arising. Here's a selection.
* Are Flamers' invulernable save 4+ or 5+? (they are Tzeentch daemons, but the white dwarf update didn't list the save). My thought is that all Tzeentch daemons must (by definition) have the mark of Tzeentch.
* Is Fateweaver 3+ or 5+? I'd say 3+ since he gets a superposition of 3+ or 5+ from my reading of the FAQ. So, which is he going to choose, I wonder? (in addition, I'm fairly certain one has to take the best save if a model has more than one of a given type).
* Do Soul Grinders get a 5+ invulnerable save? By this FAQ statement, yes!
