  As I'm not the biggest rules-guru for NetEpic (ironic neh?) I'm forwarding
these questions to the list for comment. Clarifications will appear in the
next Incoming. So hopefully we won't be answering the same questions over
and over.

<just kidding>
1. A unit on Advance orders is charged. If it wins its Close-Combat, then
can it fire in the Advance fire phase?
--> Yes

2. Normally, no armor saves are allowed for losing Close-Combat. Can a
Chaos Greater Daemon use its Chaos cards to protect it from being destroyed
in Close-Combat?
-->As long as it was not vs some sort of psychic attack (i.e. Grey Knights).
So yes, unless the unit you are fighting specifically mentions that ability.

3. Along the same lines: Is the Eldar Avatar destroyed when it loses
Close-Combat? Or does it still get its unmodified save?
--> It's dead. No saves during close combat. Even Daemons don't get a save -
although they can spend cards to stay alive.

4. Do Knights use the SuperHeavy damage table?
-->No, may have been intended but it never says.

5. How about Chaos Greater Demons?
--> Ha! I wish :) No.

6. Do Chaos Greater Demons Close-Combat Titans in the normal manner? That
is, rolling two dice each and adding the respective CAF to determine

7. I've got a quick question on the Dominatrix Energy Pulse. In the
description, it lists that buildings must save at a -4 modifier, but at the
end it states that buildings are not affected. Which is it? Thanks!

-->Uh oh, a butterbar asked this one [:) hehe
  Ahh, you spotted a rules error! in this case I would have to say fall back
to the SM/TL rules where it says: "Buildings must make a saving throw at -4
if they are hit by the pulse and will collapse into rubble if they fail."
(Hive War pg.50)
  I believe the original intention was to remove the blasts ability to
ignore holofields and rip up buildings though -so expect an further
clarification on this.

As I'm clarifying the rules as I go farther into version 4 these will surely
make it in there - as will the Ork Scorcher template, blast template
clarification, vortex missiles and Eldar free cards.

Thank you for playing, you'll get your consolation prize at the door :)~
