Yeah. Such a stupid 'solution' - all they had to do was add a line that Titans are not legal for Matched/competitive play. But nope, they overprice them without making their stats on par with the costs!

The Eldar Revenant is a particularly egregious example, it's barely better than a Knight Porphyrion, and if the latter goes first, it loses.

Unless this is some hard-working troll that made quality fakes that uploaded them, that's always an option.

Also, typos are possible.

Quite a few things seem off in this though. like the terminator issue.

can neither confirm nor deny I lost track of what I've got right now.

Maybe its not the final version? Have to agree some stuff seems off, while most of this seems reasonable. Bloodcrushers at 47 is quite painful for example.

Why would they care? They kept it under wraps for long enough. Now the leaks are free marketing. I bet their sales have spiked today.

The Revenant is just a travesty. They jacked it up by 800 points, but the Phantom was untouched? That boggles the mind...

OK So we're still missing page 130 (Drukhari, GSC and start of Grey Knights info) page 132 (most of the vanilla SM stuff), page 135 (start of the Forgeworld/IA section) and all the FW stuff after page 134 (after FW Grey Knights).

Page 124 says that some of the units that were not updated in 2018 still use the points form CA 2017. Very dumb idea for GW - it makes the game expensive to get into, and seriously do they still plan on printing and selling CA 2017????

With no datasheet changes (if there are non) I think Necrons will remain a low tier army...their point drops and the hike on the TVault just means even more destroyer spam. Wouldnt be suprised if we see a „min“ battalion of 3x 5 Immortals 2x Lord and the rest outriders with destroyers scarabs...maxbe one 5/6 unit wraiths...So all in all apart from the Battallion nothing changed

I actually think that the Revenant at 1200 wasn't bad. I enjoyed playing with that as I have 2 of them. Now I can't really even use one of them as 2k is just not worth the price of admission.

It says they use the same points, but are printed here. So no, you only need CA18 and your codex / index.

Ok, I'm starting to suspect this isn't real.

TOO many mismatches, too many odd things.

Not to mention that if you zoom in, there almost seems to be odd boxes around the text.

And can someone explain to be how bloodcrshers got "changed" into 47? its exactly like the codex. there are probably other cases, but that's one I noticed (thanks cinderspirit)

Something is off here.

can neither confirm nor deny I lost track of what I've got right now.

Maybe usable, but not well costed. Again, compare to the Knight Porphyrion - which is basically equivalent to it. Arguably just as good and a good 33% cheaper at that point (Note it got a point drop in last CA too!). Or even in the same list - the Scorpion, which is nearly as good at only 710 base (A bit more when you add on some upgrades like the Spirit Stones and a backup weapon, but not a lot more). Pretty much the same main gun. Doesn't have the missile pod sure, and 2 less wounds. Basically the same otherwise, but can also benefit from the Vehicle upgrades (Particularly Spirit Stones for the FNP! 6+++ only, but that's still one in 6 wounds it'll save on average, putting its survivability at functionally 3 more wounds than the Titan!). I think the Revenant at 800-900 is definitely a good spot until/unless they change how the Holofield works.

I mean, it's not impossible. But the weird box thing could well be jpeg artifacting. I looked at some jpeg leaks from a while back and it has the same thing.

There is text at the start of the sheets saying that some points are the same as the ones in the codex because that supports datasheets that are also in the book, that might be it but that could be just as shopped in.

So cultists went up in pts but a swathe of pts drops in other units and weapons...

i run 60 in one list and just totted up some of the other stuff in the list that had a reductions and I now have more pts left....

so...

hurrar, the other reductions paid for the cultist nerf with change

Possible, but it still does not explain some oddities in the points themselves.

Blood crushers listed at codex price being the most obvious mistake, but GK that were advertised as "big drops" changing very little is also odd.

I'd say at the very best, this is some sort of early version that got out somehow.
Or its the print version, GW fethed up bad, and this needs a D0 FAQ real bad.

Can we just pause a moment and contemplate the fact that my knights just got cheaper?

Not by a lot, and only in line with other changes (so everybody's heavy flamers now cost less) but still.

I haven't seen anyone mention that stalker bolt rifles are now free... probably because they still suck so nobody cares.

I have an IK army, a Tau army and a Crimson Fist army. All will see significant points reductions. Well, 20 points of points reductions for my IKs but significant ones for everyone else.

And a unit of 10 veteran intercessors for 170 points, all with 3 attacks each and Ap-1 storm bolters does not suck. This makes me happy. Kantor is even down 20 points, so maybe I'll have him lead them.

Mabye we aren't seeing bigger increases for stuff like infantry squads because other stuff has come down instead. They seem very reluctant to put points up, even where it's obviously a good idea.

No changes at all for Drukhari?! I can't even remotely fathom why, Dissies and Grotesques need to go up by a bit, Talos by about 15pts and Beastspacks, Reavers, Hellions and the Cronos all need to come down. Their total omission is baffling.
