Why was Animosity changed?

Other than the flavor text, it's the same animosity table as O&G, which a GW FAQ changed the CD Greenskin animosity to at some point after the new O&G book came out.

we changed all text for IP issues. we cannot reprint any published GW material. The effects are the same, as Garrett points out.

No, it's not.

It does unit strength, rather than actual models.

The only difference being that 3+ wolf riders take animosity rather than 5+. Not a big change, but it is something more to remember.

Oh yeah, by no means think it is that big a deal or what have you. Just seemed like a random change.

Do these guys count as Core? I don't recall seeing anything that would say they don't in the rules.

There's a line in the core section that says "Only Chaos Dwarf Warrior units count towards your minimum core allotment". Now, that includes a bull centaur unit if you take the Bull Centaur Lord, but, no greenskins for min core.

I would say that Hobgoblins are overpriced at the moment.

At 4pts they are identically priced to a Warrior of Ulric with light armour. The WOU is a much better deal as a choice as you get higher WS and Ld without the drawback of animosity.

I realize that these are two very different lists, however the similarity of costs struck me rather forcibly, given the disparity in what you get for your points.
