So, the results for the NOVA Open are up on the website, on the frontpage, at novaopen.com
That said, here's some quicklinks:

40k Invitational Competitive sort breakdown
Games Workshop has updated its 40k FAQ's in entirety. These can be found here:
Several of the FAQ answers coincide with NOVA FAQ and rulings, several do not coincide. Thank You GW! Now we get to remove the harder-to-make calls and defer to the designers (i.e. grounded flyers).
I wish they'd ruled on Doom Scythe LOS!
Our ruling on Njal remains the same. They did state that weapons with area of effects / auto-hits (i.e. nova, maelstrom, beam) do not affect Zooming Flyers, but they didn't encompass "effects" or other sorts of things. Since his abilities remain effects, that one doesn't change.
We'll update the NOVA FAQ largely by removing things they answered, and try to have a v2 of that up soon, since several upcoming tournaments have declared a desire to use the NOVA FAQ.
Speaking of upcoming events, I'll be at Battle for Salvation again ... and you should too! A high volume of awesome guys and players are attending, and it'll be a great event to continue stretching out those 40k legs.
I do not know if I'll be competing again, or attending as a judge. It depends heavily on my ability to either
a) Settle on a njal/guard list that I want to use (if you follow the forums, I've been brainstorming these list styles openly for a couple months)
b) Decide to use my psychoir
and coupled with
c) My ability to properly paint and build what I need for these to my newer, higher personal standards for appearance in time.
Right now, signs are pointing to: Helping them out as a judge. (semi sad face)
NOVA just took away my hobby time!
Lots of posts about my opinions on missions, responses to feedback, and many of the things we'll be improving already for next year incoming.
