Here are the questions from last year's event. They all still apply.

Q Is the Wood Elf Free Wood a normal wood (i.e. no special rules), or is it mysterious?
A The wood elf wood is chosen by the player. It must have the same footprint as a Citadel Wood.

Q Do fleeing units at end of game count as destroyed?
A Fleeing units do not count as destroyed. Only those which have fled off the table do.

Q The Beasts spell Curse of Anraheir: "the unit treats all terrain (other than impassable terrain) as dangerous terrain...." Does Open Ground count as 'Terrain' for the purposes of using this spell.
A Open terrain is still terrain.

Q Can characters have equipment given to them in the jump from 1k to 2400? For example. A vanilla bsb given a magic standard? Or mounts?
A Yes, but not without restriction. So, if you'd bought a magic banner at 1000 points, you can't swap it for a different one at 2400.
Similarly, if your Hero is on foot at 1000 points, you can buy him a mount at 2400. If your Lord is on a horse at 1000 points, you can't buy him a dragon at 2400 points.

Q How about upping the level for a wizard?
A No. Then you're getting into ditching the character and replacing him with a better one.

Q If you have a BSB in your 1000pt army must he be your BSB in the 2400pt army?
A Yes.

Q Can you swap the BSB to another character making one character cheaper and another more expensive as you go into 2400pts?
A No. You can never make anything cheaper as whilst you can add gear, you can never remove it.

Q Can you change generals?
A You can swap to a different general for the larger list, but you must still use the character from the smaller list in the larger one.

Q Can you add to a characters cost? So a L1 goblin shaman with a scroll at 1000pts becomes a L2 with a scroll at 2400pts?
A Yes, but not in the way you suggest. You can add gear, but not mage levels, unless they are granted by an extra magic item.

Q So you can add items to characters? i.e. Can I have a 90 point character in my 1000 pts list who I then add another 20 pts of magic items to in the 2400 list?
A Yes, but only add some, not remove any. So you couldn't swap a magic sword for a better one, for example.

Q Ok so basically just so I'm clear. I couldn't afford a Slann in my 1000 pt army so my BSB would have to be something else. I then can't transfer the BSB to the Slann for the full army list is that correct?
A Correct

Q Just to check - can you add a BSB to a Hero from your 1000 point army. i.e. he isn't the BSB in the first list, and becomes the BSB in the second (with all the other equipment he had when in the 1000 list of course, which would preclude you from taking anything on him in the 1000 list that was incompatible with being a BSB) ? Adding a Magic Standard to a BSB from 1000 point has been covered somewhere, but no specific confirmation that you can do this.
A Yes you can.

Q Can players swap lores between games?
A No.

Q How will Unmodified be ruled for the purposes of Unmodified leadership at the tournament?
A As in the current rulebook FAQ.

Q Do the dice you roll to wound a wizard from feedback scroll count as rolls to wound for the purpose of hatred fetish (reroll failed to wound rolls)?
A No, as in the Beastmen FAQ.

Q Can Epidemius use Tally from inside the Portalglyph?
A Yes.

Q DoC allows two magic weapons as gifts. Do their effects stack?
A This will depend on the wording for each. Bearer abilities stack with both bearer and wielder abilities, but wielder abilities, or wording like "Attacks made with..." will only stack with bearer abilities.

Bearer weapons
Wand of Whimsy
Staff of Change
The Eternal Blade

Wielder weapons
Blade of Blood
Axe of Khorne
Plague Flail
Witstealer Sword
Lash of Despair

Q Do Lizardmen supporting attacks get the benefit of Predatory Fighter?
A No. The BRB says only ever one attack each from supporting attacks.

Q Do Skull Cannons pivot in the shooting phase like a normal cannon or do they have to stay the direction they are facing in the movement phase?
A They cannot pivot during the shooting phase as they are Chariots, not War Machines. However, Skull Cannons (like all single models) can pivot as many times in their movement as they like, except when charging.

The new Wood Elf book has changed the free wood to use the plastic Citadel Wood, and this is how we will play it at RR14.

Could people use a wood of there own devising if it was the same footprint?

Undead Legions will be legal, but none of the extra End of Times rules, so no Undeath lore for everyone, and no extra points on Lords.

The new Undead rules only apply to Undead Legions chosen from the Nagash book. If you choose your army from Tomb Kings or Vampire Counts, use the rules from your army book.

Been asked a few more questions:

The new Nurgle stuff isn't out in time for RR, so won't be permitted. The limit is one month, as per the pack.

Characters can have additional gear, but may not lose gear, so for example you could add a magic weapon if you didn't take one at 1000 points, but not swap one.

Wood Elf Enchanted Arrows may not be duplicated across units. Nothing in the WE book to suggest different, only that it allows access to another enchanted item.

ASF + Great Weapon cancels out and reverts to Initiative regardless of opponent, so model with ASF will reroll if their Initiative is equal or higher.

Not received any army lists yet. Deadline to get the tournament point is midnight on Saturday 25th October.

Still have a few tickets left, so not too late to sign up. Email me
