Dropzone Commander Terrain

A question I get asked a lot is; “Where did you get your DzC terrain?”

So, here you go, a summary with pics and links. 🙂

 

General:

Dropzone Commander is “10mm scale”, which translates to somewhere between 1:148 and 1:200 – also known as N scale / N gauge. You can find quite a bit of model railroad stuff in this scale, but be wary of the prices as they can be pretty steep!

 

ebay stores:

Besides the random stores you might find on ebay (or private sellers), here’s a couple I recommend:

szdepot88
szdepot88 from China has many of the cheaper, not-so-detailed things. Like trees, lamp posts, cheap cars etc.. szdepot88 has some very nice shipping rates!

everestmodel
everestmodel, also based in China is much like szdepot88, but has free shipping on many (all?) items.

myfree8
myfree8, more of the same (from China), also looks like they have free shipping on many items.

plazajapan
plazajapan is home to some high quality stuff out of Japan. Here you will find the crisp plastic kits with little clear acrylic windows, decals, assembly instructions (in Japanese) and a lot of generally nice stuff. Shipping is quite expensive, so try and get combined shipping. I had some problems with this, so I had to use the Canadian eBay store to be able to “add to cart” instead of just “buy now” and pay shipping multiple times. Highly recommended!

pdmarsh
PD Marsh Model Railways / bluenotebowls is a UK-based seller. They make their own stuff, cast in pewter and it looks like a very nice place. They boast having over 330 different N scale models in their range, with 90+ also being available handpainted!

 

Foliage:

tree3 tree2 tree1

1:150-200 Green Trees Model for Train Railways Farm Park Buildings Scene Layout
Price: £3,52 for 20 or 25 pcs, depending on design (3 different ones available).
Decent quality trees – some of the “leaves” might fall off during use.
Store: szdepot88

tree4

4Pcs Model Train Trees Set War RR Landscape 1:75-1:300
Price: £1,64 for 4 pcs of varying sizes.
Decent quality, looks delicious with the red “fruits”, but the biggest tree is *huge* and the smallest one is quite tiny. Still the trunk of the trees look good, might even look good if you strip the foliage for dead/burnt trees…?
Store: szdepot88

tree5

10pcs N Scale White Dark Green Scenery Landscape Train Car Model Cedar Trees 8cm
Price: £3,16 for 10 pcs, uniform size.
Decent snow-covered trees. Trunk is made from twisted metal wire, with synthetic “brushes” glued/wrapped in, and then foliage has been glued to the brushes, along with a coat of “snow”. One problem I have with them is that they are all the same size.
Store: szdepot88

 

 Vehicles:

smallcars

100PCS Different style Multiple colors Model Cars 1:150 N Scale painted
Price: $13 for 100 pcs
These little buggers are a must in my opinion. You can file down the wheels on the bottom to have them “sink” into the pavement. You can bang them up. You can melt them with a gas lighter. You can stack them… Made in poor quality plastic, from 3 pieces (bottom, clear acrylic insert (windows), and painted top).
Store: myfree8

busses

BS150 12pcs Diecast Model Bus Car 1:160 Train Layout N
Price: $12,99for 12 pcs
These bring some nice detail to the board, especially because they are big enough to hide most tanks. Made in metal, so you can bang and dent them with a hammer, but cannot melt them the same was as the plastic cars.
Store: everestmodel

Top loader

Tomytec Top Loading Container Lift TCM FD430 Orange 1/150 N scale
Price: $12,50 for 1, with 1 40′ container
Very high quality kit. Even has counterweights in the bottom, and the rear wheels can steer. Lift goes up/down, in/out and tilts. Crazy detail, if a bit fragile.
Store: plazajapan

forklift

Tomix 3508 Forklift (lift) (N scale)
Price: $14,39 for 2 pcs
Nice quality! Fork goes up/down.
Store: plazajapan

trucks  10012239_681339495262131_1891143032_o

Trailer Truck Collection Part 1 (Total of 8 Trailers) – Aoshima 1/150 N scale
Price: $64,80 for 8 pcs (No, that’s not a typo)
Extremely high quality truck, 4 different cabs and 4 different trailers (so 2 of each). Requires some assembly (side mirrors and other small details). Highly recommended if you can accept the cost.
Store: plazajapan

 

Freight yard:

12ft

Tomix 3113 Type 19B 5t 12′ Containers (N scale)
Price: $4,24 for 3 pcs
These are pretty darn expensive, so I would recommend buying them and then making cheap plaster/resin casts off them for your own use.
Store: plazajapan

20ft

Tomix 3118 Type 30A 9t 20′ Containers (N scale)
Price: $5,30 for 2 pcs
Same as the smaller 12′ containers: buy and cast in plaster/resin.
Store: plazajapan

gantry crane  gantry crane 2

P&D Marsh N Gauge/Scale M10 Rail Mounted Gantry crane
Price: £74,50 for 1 complete set
This set is absolutely amazing. It’s P&D Marsh’ own design, based on what other gantry cranes look like. You can assemble it in various widths according to need. The assembly instructions alone is about 4-5 A4 packed with text. Free shipping.
Store: pdmarshmodelrailways / bluenotebowls

 

Buildings:

substation
Tomix 4023 Substation (N scale)
Price: $10,10 for 1 set
Nice kit if you want something that doesn’t look like regular housing.
Store: plazajapan

plant
Greenmax No.2144 Plant Factory (1/150 N scale)
Price: $15,90 for 1 set
This is very popular among Dropzoners, and with good reason! You get a large building (plus a little out-building), and a lot of detailed scatter terrain and bits and bobs. Highly recommended!
Store: plazajapan

factory

Greenmax No.2146 Plant Factory Equipments B (1/150 N scale)
Price: $7,90 for 1 set
A nice supplement to the Plant Factory set mentioned above, but I would not recommend getting it unless you have something very particular in mind, as you get the exact same parts (piping, drums etc) in the Plant Factory set!
Store: plazajapan

cooling

Tomytec (Komono 073) Manufacturing Plant B (Cooling Tower) 1/150 N scale
Price: $14,60 for a set with 2 buildings
These look impressive and kinda like a fusion/fission reactor (nice thing to have in the neighbourhood!). A bit of a pain in the behind to assemble if I’m honest, but looks good! (Assemble it with superglue, NOT plastic cement!)
Store: plazajapan

 

Various bits:

lamp posts

RA200 40pcs Model Trains Layout Lamppost lamp N Z 6cm
Price: £12,99 for 40 pcs
In my opinion lamp posts like this add a LOT of needed detail to a cityscape. These actually come with a single LED inserted into each lamp, and wires coming out the bottom! I trimmed the wires off, and mounted each lamp post to 2 washers glued together. I highly recommend these, they’re cheap, and look fantastic! You can find many different designs, so have a look around.
Store: everestmodel

benches  parasol

YZ150 20pcs Model Train N Z 1:150 bench chair settee
20pc White Model Train Sun Umbrella parasol Layout Scenery Scale 1/200 N Z 2.2cm
I just thought these would be funny to scatter around the parks. 🙂
Store: szdepot88

breakwater

Tomytec (Komono 048) Tetrapod Block (Breakwater) 1/150 N scale
Price: $7,10 for 25 blocks
I have plans for creating a board with a harbour area, and figured I’d use these to add some variety.
Store: plazajapan

pedestrian bridge

Greenmax No.2156 Pedestrian Bridge Set (1/150 N scale)
Greenmax No.2526 Pedestrian Bridge (Light Blue Painted) (1/150 N scale)
Price: £3,80 for 2 bridges
A really nice kit I just found recently. It fits the width of the roads on the paper Hawk terrain mats, and can be assembled in multiple configurations (as shown).
Store: plazajapan

Split Windows install media into multiple files

While trying to install Windows Server 2012 R2 from the SD card (vFlash) in a DELL server with iDRAC (Remote Administration board), I discovered that while the vFlash had support for CD/DVD image file upload, they were limited to 2GB in size. Not very useful when Windows Server 2012 R2 is over 4 GB!

Luckily, Microsoft provides us with the (free) tools for splitting the DVD into multiple chunks.

Grab and install both of these (Use the default install settings):

The Windows® Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows® 7

Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows® 8

(And of course the Windows Server 2012 R2 installation media)

  1. Navigate to the Win 7 AIK folder: C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\
  2. Copy the file C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\imagex.exe to C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Samples
  3. Edit the file C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Samples\createspannedshares.cmd
  4. On line 24 you will have a “SET /A MAX_CD_SIZE”, change this to “SET /A MAX_CD_SIZE=1782579200“, save and close.
  5. Open a Command Prompt and CD to C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Samples
  6. Run the following command: createspannedshares.cmd <path to source media> <path to target folder> <media name>
    For Example: createspannedshares.cmd M:\ D:\2012R2Split Windows2012R2
    M: Is the DVD-drive where I mounted the Windows 2012 R2 install media.
    D:\2012R2Split is my target dir where the split files will be saved.
    Windows2012R2 is the media name, don’t really know if this is used or not.
  7. After the split is done, you need to browse to D:\2012R2Split\CD1\sources\ and delete the install.wim file. Under this file you should see install.swm, which is the only one you need.
  8. Now onto the Windows 8 ADK, start a Command Prompt and CD to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.0\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Deployment Tools\amd64\Oscdimg
  9. Run the following command to generate the first (bootable) ISO file: oscdimg.exe -n -m -b”etfsboot.com” <source path> <target path + filename>
    Example: oscdimg.exe -n -m -b”etfsboot.com” D:\2012R2Split\CD1\ D:\2012R2Split\2012Disc1.iso
    -n to enable long filenames.
    -m to ignore an archive size over 700MB.
    -b to load the Boot Sector file relevant to Windows Server 2012R2 / Windows 8, making the ISO image bootable.
    D:\2012R2Spit\CD1 is the folder where the split installation is saved.
    D:\2012R2Split\2012Disc1.iso is our target file for the first ISO.
  10. Afterwards create the ISO files for Discs 2 and 3, these do not need the Boot Sector:
    oscdimg.exe -n D:\2012R2Split\CD2\ D:\2012R2Split\2012Disc2.iso -m
    oscdimg.exe -n D:\2012R2Split\CD3\ D:\2012R2Split\2012Disc3.iso -m
  11. Upload the images to your vFlash and you’re done!

If you want to split the install media into CD-sized chunks, just skip step 4 and leav the SET /A MAX_CD_SIZE to it’s default of 671088640 Bytes.

One other thing worth noting that only is relevant with DELL iDrac, is that I had to log out of the web gui after uploading each ISO image, and log back in.

 

This is what you get once you start installing 🙂

Install, insert disc 3

DzC Reference Sheets

Here you will find custom one-page (A4 Duplex) reference sheets for the armies of Dropzone Commander.

UCM Reference Sheet
Shaltari Reference Sheet
Scourge Reference Sheet
PHR Reference Sheet

I can also highly recommend this general DzC Quick Reference sheet by Jarec. It’s currently not up-to-date with the 2014 extra rules and models, but other than that it’s pretty good. 🙂

Script install own internal Certificate Authority Certificates

I recently had need for installing our internal Microsoft CA’s on public computers in a easy manner.

Export and store both your Publishing CA and Root CA certificate in the same folder. Create a text-file called “ImportCertChain.bat” and edit to contain the following:

certutil.exe -addstore -f “TrustedPublisher” Internal-Issuing-CA01.cer
certutil.exe -addstore -f “TrustedPublisher” Internal-ROOT-CA.cer
certutil.exe -addstore -f “root” Internal-ROOT-CA.cer

I then created a Self-Extracting archive containing all 3 files using WinRAR, and made it extract to a temporary folder, and run “ImportCertChain.bat” automaitcally.
Distribute this .exe file to your remote users.

In this manner, you can issue your own 1024 bit SSL certificate, and bypass the “ban” on less-than-2048-bit Certificates.

Remote Desktop hotkeys, useful for Windows 8 / Server 2012

Working with Windows versions prior to Windows 8 and Server 2012 via a Remote Desktop Connection can be done primarily with your mouse. However with Windows 8 and Server 2012 there is a focus on hotkeys and “hover over this” and “hover over that”. Great for fullscreen, but not so great for Remote Dektops running in windowed mode (for example in mRemote).

Below is a list of hotkeys that will help you out in Remote Desktop sessions, taken from Microsoft.

ALT+HOME displays the Start menu. Similar to Windows CTRL+ESC (or Windows key).
ALT+INSERT cycles through the programs in most recently used order. Similar to Windows ALT+ESC.
CTRL+ALT+END starts the Windows NT Security dialog box. Similar to Windows NT/2000 CTRL+ALT+DEL.
ALT+DELETE Displays the Windows menu.
ALT+PAGE UP switches between programs from left to right. Similar to Windows ALT+TAB.
ALT+PAGE DOWN switches between programs from right to left. Similar to Windows SHIFT+ALT+TAB.
CTRL+ALT+BREAK switches the Client between a window and a full screen.
CTRL+ALT+MINUS (Minus as in the – symbol on the numeric keypad) Places a snapshot of the active window, within the client, on the Terminal server clipboard (provides the same functionality as pressing ALT+PrintScrn on a local computer.)
CTRL+ALT+PLUS (Plus as in the + symbol on the numeric keypad) Places a snapshot of the entire client window area on the Terminal server clipboard (provides the same functionality as pressing PrintScrn on a local computer.)

I’ve printed the above out and stuck below my monitor until I learn to use them. 🙂

Launching RemoteApp’s with %USERNAME%

RemoteApps are defined by a path to an executable, and an optional set of command-line arguments. These arguments can include variables, but apparently not per-user environment variables, such as %USERNAME% (by design). Read more here and here.

I don’t know if this is common knowledge, but I caught me by surprise!

This can be a problem for applications such as Microsoft Dynamics Navision 5 that is often launched with a %USERNAME% -argument to point to the users .ZUP file, which contains preferences.

I created a VBScript launcher that needs 3 arguments to run – the VBscript is selected as the executable, and the arguments are used as command-line arguments in RemoteApp Manager.
Oh, and you would probably want to set a new icon as well. 🙂

Database and Company is self-explanatory, ZupSubFix is a 2 or 3-letter country abbreviation because we have companies in many different countries.

Dim WshShell, Executable, Username, Params
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
Set Args = WScript.Arguments
Database = Args.Item(0)
Company = Args.Item(1)
ZupSubfix = Args.Item(2)
Executable = “””C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\CSIDE Client\finsql.exe”””
Username = LCase(WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(“%USERNAME%”))
Params = ” servername=<hostname>\<instance>, database=” & Database & “, company=” & chr(34) & Company & chr(34) & “, ntauthentication=1, nettype=tcp, id=\\<UNC Path to ZUP files>\” & Username & “_nav500_” & ZupSubfix
WshShell.run Executable & Params,1,false

This applies to both Windows Server 2008 R2 and 2012. Sadly.

RemoteApp with only specific drives redirected

In a standard Remote Desktop Connection on Windows 7 and newer, you can specify which drives to redirect to your remote host:

RemoteDesktop - Drive settings

 

This is handy since it allows you to filter out for example network drives, that would still get mapped by a login script. Thus preventing the same network location showing up twice.

If you check all your drives, you will end up with the following line in your .RDP file:

drivestoredirect:s:*

If you start filtering drives out, you might end up with something like this:

drivestoredirect:s:C:\;D:\;E:\;DynamicDrives

Awesome! So we can do this for RemoteApps also, right? Right?! Wrong! (well, not out-of-the-box anyway)

Problems when deploying RDP files

For reasons unknown to mere mortals, Microsoft has decided that RemoteApp doesn’t need this feature. If you try to add the above-mentioned drivestoredirect string into your “Custom RDP Settings” in the RemoteApp Manager, you will get an error, saying that the RDP setting cannot be overridden, and thus will need to be removed.

RemoteApp-1  RemoteApp-2

 

Is this because RemoteApp doesn’t work with drivestoredirect added? No. If you disable singning, deploy a .RDP file and edit this file to include only specific drives, it will work just fine. Ah but of course you still want your files signed, so rdpsign.exe comes to the rescue.
I created a VBScript that can search for drivestoredirect:s:* and replace it with your desired array of drives, and afterwards sign the .RDP file – for all files in the default deployment folder:  C:\Program Files\Packaged Programs\, and sign them with the certificate specified by a SHA1 HASH.

Download the script here: RDPSign

Problems when deploying MSI files

The problem with this method is that it doesn’t work when you want to create .MSI packages, since the .RDP file included in the package is created at runtime, and therefore without your modifications.

The solution this time is to modify the RDP settings directly in the registry on the RDSH server. To prepare for this, start by assigning a second Custom RDP Setting, for example compression:i:1, like so (remember to also start signing your packages in the RemoteApp Manager again)

RemoteApp-3

 

Now open Regedit, and navigate to: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Terminal Server\TSAppAllowList

The 2 values we need to change are in CustomRDPSettings and DeploymentRDPSettings:

RemoteApp-4

 

When changing these values, be very careful not to delete the invisible line-breaks! You can find them if you step through the data using the arrow keys.

Simply edit CustomRDPSettings to change the compression:i:1 to drivestoredirect:s:C:\;D:\;E:\;DynamicDrives

Then edit DeploymentRDPSettings and change drivestoredirect:s:* to drivestoredirect:s:C:\;D:\;E:\;DynamicDrives

You can actually see the change inside the RemoteApp Manager, just don’t hit Apply, or it will start making trouble 😉

RemoteApp-5

Now you can create MSI files with RDP files embedded in them that only redirect the drives YOU want it to!

Last but not least…

RDWeb deployment

Unfortunately I have NOT been able to find any workarounds for RDWeb, even though this post mentions that TSWeb (so it might be referring to an older version?) should inherit the settings/RDP files from the RDSH’s. I have tried applying the same registry-hack on the RDWeb server, and still it keeps generating RDP files that redirect all drives.
As far as I can tell, this is because the RDP file is generated on-demand by a server-side function. This function generates the complete RDP file including signing, so you cannot just inject/modify the RDP string directly on the webpage, since this would invalidate the file. You would need to find the code that is actually generating the RDP file and modify this.

 

Applies to

This applies to both Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012. Sadly there is still no options to control drive redirection in Server 2012. 🙁

Cheers!

Application Deployment with Secunia CSI

With a combined solution of Secunia Corporate Software Inspector (CSI) (licensed per device) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) (free with Windows Servers), you can actually deploy new software as well as patches to your domain clients.

In this example I will be deploying the activation-package for CompuTrace to all clients, to enable full asset tracking across the domain. Remember to get your own CompuTrace.msi package from the Absolute Customer Center – Each .msi is unique for each customer.

I will assume you already have Secunia CSI installed and configured for publishing signed packages into WSUS. We do this with an internal Microsoft certificate infrastructure. A CodeSigning certificate has been assigned to CSI, and is deployed to clients using a GPO. A normal Web Server certificate is used for SSL on WSUS.

 

To deploy Computrace.msi, follow these steps:

  1. Start by creating a New Custom Package:
  2. Fill out name, description and make sure the “Edit Package Content” checkbox is checked:
  3. Leave the Script Type as JScript, and enter the code from the attached text file. Also click the Add Local File and attach the Computrace.msi package.

    Download text file: CompuTrace JScript
  4. Make sure the checkbox “Mark Package as “Always Installable”” is checked.
  5.  You might want to Export Package Content to save your work for future reference. Otherwise just hit Publish.
  6. Hopefully the package is created:
  7. Find the new package in the Patch -> Available menu:
  8.  Find the new package in the list, right-click and Approve it to the appropriate WSUS computer groups:

On a client computer, it will look something like this:
Note that since the package is listed as “important”, it will automatically be installed.

 

 

In case you missed it, the JScript code can be found here: CompuTrace JScript

BDLC read from Active Directory

I have talked about Business Data List Connector previously, and while it can also be used for connecting to Active Directory, the example given by Layer2 is not the best…:

Connection Provider: .Net Framework Data Provider for OleDb
Connection String: Provider=ADSDSOOBject; User Id=MyDomain\MyUser; Password=MyPass; Mode=Read; Bind Flags=0; Page Size=1000;
Select Statement: SELECT givenName, name, title, telephoneNumber From ‘LDAP://DC=Yourdomin, DC=COM’ WHERE  objectClass=’user’ AND objectCategory=’Person’

The syntax shown above will not work if you want to find Enabled AD users (or Disabled for that matter), because you have to work with bitmasks.

First off, if you want more than 1000 results, change the page size in your Connection String:

Provider=ADSDSOOBject; User Id=MyDomain\MyUser; Password=MyPass; Mode=Read; Bind Flags=0; Page Size=5000;

(You might also have to change your max pagesize in Active Directory itself, Google around for it :))

 

The Select Statement given in the example is done using SQL Dialect (as far as I’m aware.. correct me if I’m wrong), and you need to use pure LDAP queries.
Long story short, in order to select all Enabled AD users, use the following Select Statement:

<LDAP://dc=fabrikam,dc=com>;(&(objectCategory=User)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2));Name;Subtree

If you want all Disabled AD users, use the following instead (a ! has been omitted in front of userAccountControl)

<LDAP://dc=fabrikam,dc=com>;(&(objectCategory=User)(userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2));Name;Subtree

 

If you also want to search for uses who are member of  a group, use the following – here the search will also be started in the Users OU. Note that the group must be specified by it’s full DN (Distinguished Name).

<LDAP://ou=Users,dc=fabrikam,dc=com>;(&(objectCategory=User)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)(memberOf=CN=Domain Users,CN=Users,DC=fabrikam,DC=com));Name;Subtree

 

The attributes that you select are specified near the end, so if you want the sAMAccountName (username), email and title, change the end to look like this:

DC=fabrikam,DC=com));sAMAccountName,mail,title;Subtree

Warhammer 40.000 6th Edition FAQ 1.0a changes summarized

Games Workshop kindly omitted to highlight/summarize the changes from the Warhammer 40.000 rulebook FAQ 1.0 to FAQ 1.0a.. So I did!

Download a PDF version here: Changes from 40k FAQ 1.0 to 1.0a

Download the 1.0a FAQ from GW here: Warhammer 40.000 Rulebook Official Update Version 1.0a

 

ERRATAs:
Change: “armour save” to “save”:
Page 35 – Special Rules, Feel No Pain.
Add the following paragraph “If one or more models in a unit have the Feel No Pain special rule then the Mixed Saves method of Wound allocation should always be used for allocating Wounds and removing casualties from that unit; Feel No Pain rolls should be individually made after each failed save.”

Addition:
Page 49 – Flying Monstrous Creatures, Swooping.
Add the following bullet point:
• Models that physically fit under a Swooping Flying Monstrous Creature can move beneath it. Likewise, a Swooping Flying Monstrous Creature can end its move over such models. However, when moving this way, enemy models must still remain 1″ away from the base of the Swooping Flying Monstrous Creature, and the Swooping Flying Monstrous Creature cannot end its move with its base within 1″ of other enemy models.

Addition:
Page 80 – Flyers, Zoom.
Change the fifth sentence to read “However, as a certain amount of forward thrust is required for the vehicle to stay in the air, a Zooming Flyer can never voluntarily move less than 18″ in its own Movement phase.”

Addition:
Page 413 – Reference, Profile, Codex: Orks, Warbiker Nob.
Change unit type to Bike

Change: (Jump) to (Jetpack):
Page 413 – Reference, Profile, Codex: Tau Empire, Crisis Shas’vre
Change unit type to Infantry (Jetpack).

Change: “have the unit type Infantry (Character).” changed to “have (Character) added to their unit type.”
Page 413 – Reference, Profiles
Add the following Designer’s Note:.
Designers Note: Wolf Guard, Nobz, Nobz Warbikers, and Crisis Shas’vre that lead a unit (for example an Ork Nob leading Ork Boyz, a Wolf Guard leading Grey Hunters) have (Character) added to their unit type.

Addition, Tyranid Prime:
Page 413 – Reference, Profiles, Codex: Tyranids..
Add the following profiles to the Tyranids section:
Model WS BS STWIA Ld Sv Type
Trygon Prime 5366646 10 3+ Mc(ch)
Tyranid Prime 6455354 10 3+ In(ch)

FAQs:
Change: In version 1.0 FAQ all hits from multiple barrages should be taken at the same time – not any more…
Q: In a multiple barrage, do you determine all of the hits and all of the Wounds separately for each blast, or do you resolve all of blasts in one go? (p34)
A: Work out the total number of models hit by each template, then proceed to allocate Wounds and remove
casualties as normal for the models hit by each seperate template.

Change: Looks like GW remembered that it’s called Psychic Scream and not Psychic Shriek:
Q: Can psychic powers or other effects that cause a Leadership test, for example the Tyranids’ Psychic Scream, affect vehicles or units embarked upon transports? (p76 / p78)
Removed:
Q: Are models free to move underneath Zooming Flyers? (p80)
A: Yes, though enemy models must finish their move at least 1″ away from the Flyer’s base.

Changed: Used to be “The same speed in inches that it moved last turn.” which is a bloody mess!, now it’s 36″ flat.
Q: If a Flyer suffers Locked Velocity and was moving at Cruising Speed (18″-36″), what speed is its velocity actually locked at? (p81)
A: 36″.
