The aim of this thread is to bring together some resources with answers to some of the most commonly asked questions that come up time and again in this forum. Other interesting questions and rules debates will also be included.

Link to GW FAQs: Link
These are the latest FAQs as published by GW. They tend to be what is used in most play as a baseline. As a player you may well find that some groups house-rule certain items or produce their own tournament FAQs or similar. As these ones are published by GW though, they usually carry more weight and tend to be thought of as 'official'. It is a good idea to have read through these, particularly the BRB and HE FAQs.

ASF v. ASL
Frost Phoenix & Multiple ASL
8th ed. ASF & difference to Speed of Asuryan
GW and ASF Debate
Interaction with Ogre Thundertusk
Combat Situation Question v. Vampires

It would be great if we can get some communication going on over questions to include here. Either reply here or send me a PM about anything you think is worthy of entry and I'll include it in this post.

Keep adding them John, :3.
I've stickied the topic for you.

How about the Dragon Mage Spell Selection, White Lions and Auto Wounding with Flaming Sword, and the ASF + Kadon.

Also, a link to the GW FAQ's could be helpful for players completely new to the game.

John may want to link the the question on Teclis / BoH as it seems to be a noob question that comes up once awhile.

I have edited this post to archive the stuff relating to the old book. FAQs for the new book will be included from now on so post up to get them included. I imagine a lot of stuff will be answered when we get an actual GW FAQ for the 8th ed. book so that will be a good place to get some initial answers... when it eventually happens...

Note: I've already included the question about RBTs and multi-shots.

Yeah I thought about this one but we don't have a good answer for it yet. My gut tells me it won't be allowed for mounted stuff at tournaments simply because of the rulebook wording but I've been wrong (many, many times) before. I imagine it'll be in the official FAQs.

I guess I can include it for now.

I'm pretty sure you're right on the not mounted- for a couple reasons that will probably sound strange.

1) It seem near universal agreement from those of us who are most familiar with the rules and the way they work.
2) We all wish we were wrong.

It's the 2nd one that is most telling haha.
