Changes I've found:

Targeting is now to imaginary cylinders rather than actual model.

Nothing targets multiple cubes any more (bye bye crazy Plague mortar one shotting half the opposing strike team)

Doubling/tripling the opponent's roll for stuff like extra free actions is no longer a thing (bye bye melee monsters doing crazy chain moves across the battlefield eating multiple opponents).

All seems good to me as the above two seemed to be what killed the fun for people playing against me previously.

Mat

I have the following you can have.

Models equivalent to the 2 different starter sets but only one JetBike.
Enforcer Strider (Standard)

Should be enough to get you started.

I am sure i also have an engineer and a couple of defender upgrades somewhere.

The sample rules are free now;

https://www.manticgames.com/games/digit ... ee-sample/

I’ve not yet downloaded it, assume it’s the core rules sans the army lists.

According to the page its just the "basic rules" so you can learn to play, no idea if there are advanced ones?

Looks the only thing missing is the campaign rules and most of the scenarios. And unit stats but they're in a different book and available on EasyArmy.

Question on dice - are all Command dice the same (i.e. each has one each of the 6 symbols) or are they different?
Trying to make myself a little cheat sheet as I don't have the 3e dice.

Also, Enfocer Sergeant has "Mobile Infantry" as a keyword (at least on EasyArmy) but I don't see it in the free rules?

Dice are all the same, one of each face.

‘Mobile Infantry’ is his special order. The ‘splat’ command dice ability that changes based on your leader. It's on the Easy Army card. 'If the active model is equipped with a Jump Pack... etc'

You do, if you click on the enforcer sargeant entry in easy army the effect of the splat (mobile infantry in this case) is shown just above the weapon stats.

Yeah, just realised the issue, as the saved version (pdf, email) doesn't show it - just something to remember.

And unless you subscribe, you can only have 1 saved list.
