Chaos Daemons FAQ (1.2) is live

Games Workshop has posted a minor update to the Chaos Daemons Codex to answer questions that didn't need to be answered, and in doing so has shoved their foot down the back of their throat.  Anyone who was claiming that the revised Screamer, Flamer and new chariots were not Daemons and didn't have invulnerable saves were a bunch of idiots to begin with.  I'm just saying.  Further, most of them are Grey Night players who are sore that daemons can butt hurt them as bad as they were taking other armies until recently.

The updated FAQ can be found here:

And the update in question is this:

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.

Which will now prompt the same asshats to claim that Fateweaver only has a 5++ and a Pink Horror has a 5++ instead of 3++ and 4++ respectively.  Which of course is wrong, because it is stupid.  It is also wrong because above says "with the addition" instead of "replacing."  The addition of a 5++ to a 3++ (Fateweaver) would allow you to have two saves, which you can't have (BRB).

[Off my soapbox]

However, what this does call into question is if a Soul Grinder has a 5++.  I'd like to think that it does, but I'm trying to look at this objectively, not wishfully.  The new ruling now contradicts the previous entry on the Sould Grinder which just says to add "and have the Fear special rule."
