Ther was an issue very similar with the Black Legion List which has now been rectified. I would go for the latest numbered revision on Taccoms and read through the relevant thread by the respective army champion or sub champion for the list.
Fine in theory, but problematic if you build a list according to the latest version and the TO wants you to use an older one.
The official approved lists along with rules that is now a beautiful live document (in addition to being able to be downlaoded is below)
That's only the Approved lists though. Matt's tournament at TGA last year also allowed Developmental lists, hence the issue.
The compendium is good but I have been looking on Taccoms for the individual threads for the most recent updates and activty as some of the lists in the compendium are quite experimental and/or havent been touched for a long time
Indeed - what I'm mainly concerned about are the ones that have been touched, updated, and released... but not in the Compendium. If that's common, what's the point of the Compendium at all?
You should always use the lists found in the rule book. I'm on my phone or I'd quote you the page and such. I learnt that the hard way myself
That sounds like there's a story behind it!
Perhaps my issue is just that the Epic community is not as active as I'd like. Many of the lists have been Developmental for several years with minimal 'development' but without becoming Approved (or fixing glaring errors) - that rubs me the wrong way. I've been spoiled by other games.
