The official Privateer Press Errata has been updated once more, and can be found here. Some highlights:
- Shield guard has been modified to clear up the targeting issues. Now, if a shield guard model wishes to use its ability, it becomes automatically hit, instead of the target. This clears up that problem with ranged enemies turning so they couldn’t see (and thus ‘target’) the shield guard model. A very good change.
- Burst Fire has been changed to include huge bases. Whereas Leviathan, Venators, Raiders, etc previously received no Burst Fire bonus against a huge base, they now get the same +2 bonus they get against large bases. This is a very good change, if you ask me.
- Saeryn’s ‘no melee attack’ feat has been updated to only apply to small, medium, and large based warbeasts. The Archangel cannot be protected by her now.
- Backswing has been changed, and now produces an additional attack after the first has been resolved. Abilities like Enliven will now trigger after one attack, instead of after both, possibly saving those previous Menite warjacks…
I was a bit surprised to see no mention of Thagrosh’s feat and how, if at all, it applies to Gargantuans. Given that they updated Saeryn, a Thagrosh update seemed prudent. I was also pretty surprised by the backswing change; I didn’t even know that one was being considered.
Give it a look; there are some very key changes there.
