Pet hate: buying £100s of rulebooks, then STILL having to cross-reference latest FAQs, errata etc.
As such, I have just edited the DE FAQ from the website into a format that can be printed, and cut into inserts for each page, so that when I am choosing units, I have all their latest rulings. It's a .doc, or a .pdf

For example, one segment has the errata(in red) and the FAQs(in black) for Baron and Lilith, so it can be added between pages 48 & 49. I intend to use double-sided tape near the spine to add it as a separate mini-page.

Questions:
Moderators, if I share this am I breaking forum rules? (It's free information from GW)

Other members, anyone want a copy? Useful for noobs like me, and anyone who doesn't want their book defaced but who hates carrying sheafs of printouts!

I won't post or even PM it until I get an answer from the Mods.

I am now going to do the same for the rulebook, and Tyranids.

As long as it's stuff from the PDF's and not from the any of the Codices then I'd say you're fine to do it. They tend to get annoyed when their books are photocopied or stored electronically, but the FAQ's are a free user resource. If anything they should be thanking you for spreading their rules around and making it easier to use.

This is a great idea, so feel free to share it here.

Sounds like a great idea - I'd love a copy

Oddly, errata used to be printed in such a foprmat so that you could cut them out and glue them in your codex!

That is a brilliant idea!
I would do it myself, if you didn't do it already.

Pls mods, do approve, or I'll have to do it myself geek

OK, think this will work, please let me know if it does, I'm an idiot on computers!

The underscore lines are where to cut, Errata and updates are in red, FAQs are in black.
Everything is cut&pasted, not re-typed, so should be word-for-word perfect.

OK, a few hours' reformatting, and the large Rulebook is done,15 pages of it!
Again, this is designed to be trimmed to fit in the book, underscore lines indicate where to chop each section for a double-page spread (apart from MCs and Flyers which needed a whole page anyway!)
Errata are red, FAQs are black.

Not sure which double post you meant: I accidentally doubled, so edited the second to "please remove", which has now been removed; the rest of my posts have been unique, as they are links to the 3 different edits: the codex, the large rulebook and the small one.
Either way, sorry!

Great work! I might look into getting this added to the resource section of the website (where downloads to the FAQs are linked).
