Note on Storm Shields 
Designer’s Note: When we wrote Edge of Silence, we created some new rules for the relic shield and storm shield. When used in isolation – say, when playing through the missions in Edge of Silence – these rules work perfectly well, but when used with a Battle-forged army, it is possible to upgrade a Character with Artificer Armour, and in doing so have a model with a Save characteristic of 1+. This was not our intention, and so we are changing the rules for both these items of wargear as they appear on these datasheets. Please also note that while some weapons and other items of wargear (e.g. storm shields) appear in other places with slightly different rules, the rules for them that appear in Edge of Silence should not apply to other units – you should continue to use the rules as printed in your current Codex for the time being.


Also no mention in the space wolves or  edge of silence ( indomitus box units)   of  Blade Guard  having the wolf guard keyword.

It is possible that the edge of silence gives the wolf guard key word pre FAQ.

That was my expectation for storm shields. For now, still a 3++ unless you are the new primaris dudes.

What the hell is Edge of Silence?

 

I would also like to know this but regardless, with AP whats the issue with having a 1+ save? A 1 has always failed since ever, seems like a dumb reason.

As we've explained in detail over in the Storm Shields thread, a 1 does not always fail.  An unmodified 1 always fails.  When you modify a roll down to 1, but happen to have a 1+ Save, that's a pass.

As much as i love your attitude, my point being, a 1+ in other GW game systems hasn't been an issue until they changed the modifiers to the rolls as they are.

What attitude? I told you what the issue was in two short sentences, and told you what thread to go to (the Storm Shield thread) where you can read all of the in-depth explanation of why it would have been a big problem. I didn’t see the point of re-explaining all of that here in this thread.

The storm shield threads were the worst I ever saw B&C behave.

Valerian gave a friendly version recap of it.

It's not strictly on topic so this will be the last i'll say on it but if you're not aware of the connotations of an "as per my last email" type of phrasing i'd encourage you to look it up. To point though, I dont need a rules explanation, I was expressing my displeasure at the change.

Where I come from, when a player says, “What’s the issue with...?”

It’s benign and appropriate for another player to respond with, “The issue with that is this...”. “You can read up on it over here in this other place where we’ve been talking about it.”

If you didn’t need or want the rules explanation, and wanted to express displeasure, then just express that. Don’t complain when you say, “I don’t understand,” and someone comes along to help you understand.
