Note that the NOVA FAQ is designed to be printed on double-sided paper to conserve printing costs. It is kept trimmed to as small a # of pages as we can while still having it be a useful document, to encourage tournament organizers who use it to print for all attendees. This is so that no opponent can claim the FAQ has a certain answer (and lie in the process), leaving their opponent with a lengthy and unavailable document or wasting time calling a rules judge to prove or disprove the claim. We would rather force honesty by letting all players be provided with a printed copy of the FAQ.
Just a quick note that we've updated the NOVA FAQ for use in the upcoming Battle for Salvation. Ed wanted me to get an updated version out sooner than later, as they wanted to use it. Done.
Mostly it removes rulings made redundant or incorrect by the GW FAQ. We got a couple different than they ruled, and many the same, rendering all irrelevant in the process.
Many of the unique power weapons in the various codices are still not FAQ'ed, but many were FAQ'ed, so that chart is also shorter.
Note that since several of the people in our area are attending BFS, any major changes were run by their judges via Ed Miller without our input, and we went with their rulings. If we end up disagreeing (we do not presently), we will amend following a tournament we'll be participating at.
Very minor changes, except for 2:
1) Imotekh's Lightning and Njal's Storm do NOT affect Zooming Flyers / FMCs. Maledictions and Blessings can affect them, along with any subsidiary or attendant damage effects (i.e. Objuration Mechanicum). This ruling was actually brought up and determined more by the BFS guys than by the NOVA crew; we simply concur with it.
2) The Doom Scythe's Death Ray may still place its initial point and draw its line anywhere within 360 degrees of its weapon, but may only cause hits and allocate wounds to models within its line of sight (so, 45 degree horizontal and vertical fixed firing arc of the Death Ray itself).
