Taking Marines first ... many marine vehicles have been reduced in point costs ...

Storm Ravens have been reduced from 310 to 290.
Landraiders reduced from 285 to 265.
Stormspeeders are all down by 15 points each to 135, 150, and 160.
Gladiators ... 3 are down by 20 points ... Lancer at 180, Reaper at 210, Valiant at 230.
Repulsor went from 315 to 295, and Repulsor Executioner went from 355 to 335.

Also ...
Eliminators went down from 30 points each to 25 points.

Inceptors and Vanguard Vets have increases to some of their weapons.

Some changes for Blood Angels, Dark Angels.  And Space Wolfs have received some buffs.

As for Orks ,,.

Boyz are going to toughness 5 and choppas to AP-1.  This makes me wonder what is going on with the new Ork codex that is rumored to be released soon.  Perhaps Nobs have already received this in the new codex, and this Chapter approved was going to be released after the new Ork codex?

Also, there were some changes to Beast Snaggas already. :icon_eek:  Again this makes me think ork codex has been on delay.

And ... regular Choppas as a weapon are going to AP -1, Big Choppas to S+2 AP-1 Damage 2, and Huge Choppas  going to S+3 AP-3 Damage 2.

Necrons seem minimal compared to Space Marines and the new Ork changes.

Catacomb barge goes from 145 to 155.
Chronomancers up +10 for their entropic lance.
Immortals are -2 for for their tesla carbines.
Doomsday ark goes from 190 to 170.
Lokhurst Destroyers 60 to 55.
Lokhurst Hvy Destroyers 70 to 60.

Eldar changes seem a healthy rebalance, and seem to improve the opportunities for the faction ...

Avartar of Khaine 235 to 200.
Fire Prisms 170 10 155.
Night Spinners 145 to 135.
Wraithblades 40 to 37.
Wraithguard 38 to 35.
Dark Reapers 35 to 32.
Fire Dragons 23 to 20.

Imperial Guard ...

Gaunts Ghosts will be a unit costing 135 points.
Ogryns will go from 30 points to 25.
Baneblade will be -40 points to each variant.

And Death Korp folks will be disappointed ...
Death Riders go from 15 to 20 points.
Death Rider Command goes from 60 to 85 points.

Not much love at GW for the Guard at the moment.

Chaos Space Marines ...

Cultists down from 6 to 5 points.
Chosen down 15 to 14 points.
Chaos Landraiders from 286 to 265.
Venomcrawler from 130 to 110.

That last one seems like a gift for them, and perhaps there isn't going to be a new codex soon.

Daemons ... only two changes ... adding Be'lakor for 360 points, and reducing Lord of Change from 270 up to 290 ... nothing else, that's it.
