No, every other Daemon in the codex gets the Fear special rule from the FAQ, not the BRB ;).

I think that the grinder actually does not get a +5 invulnerable. In the daemon codex it says what the grinder gets and what daemon means to the grinder. In the gw faq it does say that he gets fear in addition to his other rules. It does not say anything about the 5+ invul, just the addition of fear. so my thoughts are that it gets fear but no 5+

In the most recent WD, with the army updates, the Grinder gets 5++ saves in the battle report. For what that's worth.

I don't think that a battle report worthy of the White Dwarf would report the Grinder getting the 5+ saves if they were not supposed to get them.

I see the FAQ says to add Fear to the Daemonic Forces page, but does that preclude the addition of the BRB Daemon rule effects (including the 5+ invul. save) to all the units with the Daemon special rule? Perhaps, but I guess we'll have to wait til they clear that up again. But for sure the Grinder has Fear, that's something.
