UK grand tournament faq

So on the 3rd page of this thing, it implies that destroyed vehicles act as size 3 terrain?

Q: "Can an independent character join a unit before deployment (e.g. go into a drop pod)?"

A: "Yes."

Bam! Here come my drop-podding techmarines! This was implied before, but it seems pretty clear here.

Yes it does.

So if you're playing at the UK GT this year, it's a rules change. Otherwise, I doubt many people are going to recognize an FAQ written by an events manager.

The thing is chuck full of all sorts of rules changes.

Edit: and thrax, I hope you wouldn't try to use this to actually drop pod a techmarine (except in the UK GT).

Whoever edited this thing did a piss-poor job. What's with all the repetition? Weird.

didn't UK tournament faq rulings turned into these hated FAQs before?

Yes. Many of the old Chaos FAQs from Chapter Approved were tournament rulings, I think.

But that's neither here nor there. As Ed says, they're still not official FAQs.

Man these are bad. I feel for the guy that he knows the design team is too incompetent to fix these problems, but then he runs out and shows he's no better by including rather sweeping rules changes in his unofficial FAQ, for an official GW tournament.

I know. For ex., the sweeping question of IC deployment above does not take into consideration the fact that pods begin in reserve...and so, now all ICs can deploy in reserve units, off-table, whatever.

Eek!

Thrax, if you quoted it correctly, there are no longer "independent characters" in 4th edition. Only "characters". Sorry. You're SOL. ;)

Eh, why get worked up. I don't think too many of us are planning to go to the UK GT.

And if someone wants to use these in a tournament around here, that's find with me. I'm happy to adjust to abuse these if that's what people want.

What will be annoying is when we're at a tournament somewhere and someone insists he "read it on the Internet somewhere" and is refering to this monstrosity.
