Jfrazell - I think we'd need a good 5 pages at least for the FAQ to be worth anything. Remember that list of FAQs that yakface drew up? It was pretty long


Actually, I *completely* disagree with this. If they answered just the 10 most relevant questions (granted, that's subjective) for each new codex and the main rulebook, we'd already be in drastically better shape. Hugely better shape. I appreciate all of Yak's hard work, but the reality is that GW doesn't need to drill down that far to make a significant difference. And that's why the lack of FAQs is so frustrating.

As others have said, I think we're all going to be very disappointed by the FAQs, if they ever even arrive. It's been too long with too much buildup...combine that with GW's general lack of attention to detail, and it's not going to be pretty.

I'm afraid you are the Cassandra of our expectations Gorgon.

I think I woulda preferred to play the Achilleus of your expectations by lashing the GW design team to the back of my chariot and dragging them around Nottingham. But hey, I'll take it.

I wish you two would stop Hectoring each other. This thread is turning into an Odyssey of classical references.

We're not very big on official rules. Rules lead to people looking for loopholes. What's here is about it.

"The last known instance of common sense happened at a GT. A player tried to use the 'common sense' argument vs. Mauleed to justify his turbo-boosted bikes getting a saving throw vs. Psycannons. The player's resulting psychic death scream erased common sense from the minds of 40k players everywhere. " - Ozymandias
