Default Warhammer: Character Rules Q&A

I have been told various judgements about the ruling on characters, and wanted to know what the truth is. I've been told by some people that even if a Lord also takes up a Hero choice, he only counts as 1 Character. Where as, I've also been told that they count as a Character a piece, therefore 2. I wanted to know which is correct. I am highly confused and really want to know so I don't screw someone in a game.

Thanks for any help. Can you please site the rulings(page #), so I can see them for myself and correct some of my friends.

If they count as alord and a hero, they obviously take up two slots, else there would be no point to that rule.

Some units, such as Black Orc Warbosses, are a Lord and Hero, thus count as two Characters.

If they are just a Lord, they count as one character.

Thanks a lot. I was just curious because I've been told by some people that because they represent one character they only take up one character slot.
