Moderate Questions (According to a lot of feedback I got these ones were far far harder than the rest)

Well, most of the mediums and easys can be found in your average guard player's personal book collection. Thats what made them "easy" and " medium"* as opposed to hard.


EDIT: Oops. I found a small mistake in the wording of the fourth hard question. Those who have already sent their quiz answers in should check the question and see if they wish to adjust their answer.

This Quiz, and indeed many others, have reminded me of why I have started to dislike Quizzes; they are generally a case of "look up this really obscure bit of info!"

I'm going to have a go at making a Quiz that isn't a "tick the box" affair; one that requires intimate knowledge of the Guard, not infinite knowledge of factoids.

Well to be really good, quizs should happen without the resources of (a) the internet or (b) reading through you BL books. However I don't know how you could force those restriction on people. However be my guest... I'll most certainly give it a try.

Aye, otherwise its like a Pub Quiz where ya can use your mobile, kinda daft. Even if its done as a quick fire quiz its impossible to avoid the problem of googling answers up, would be interesting to see what yovue got in mind Wargamer.
