Default The 40k Questionable Corner

Hello my dubiously perfumed cherubs, I decided Id set up a quiz-like thread.

Heres the deal- Ill post a random number of questions each day (not necessarily in a single post either) and the first person to provide a correct answer to one query will be rewarded with Rep, the amount being dependant on how difficult I perceive the question to be.

Rules:

You can only answer a single question each day, this is to prevent the same handful of people dominating the quiz and allow everyone to have a fair shot.
For example: If I was to submit 3 questions in one post you would have to choose which one to answer rather than being able to answer them all, the same with any other questions I post on that day.

If the answer Im looking for is in the form of a date people will receive Rep depending on how close they get to the correct answer (1 Rep for the right Century, 2 Rep for the decade etc) until the final definitive answer is provided.

If you receive Rep from me please don't come on the thread to announce it before I post stating that question has been answered, try to keep off-topic talk to a minimum as well.

If you disagree with how I judge the answers given- sucks to be you Im not forcing you to play, this is just meant to be a bit of fun and hopefully educational.

Update: I'm stealing from CotE

Anyone not abiding by this rule from now on, will not recieve their reputation - even if they answered the question correctly (this rule has been added to the front post). Much appriciated.

Here's the first set of, Battlefleet Gothic themed, questions to kick this thread into gear

1) What was the Flagship of Battlefleet Gothic called?

2) Which planet, capital of the Gothic Sector, is the headquarters of Battlefleet Gothic?

Enjoy.

Why Battlefleet Gothic would be based at the Formidable Port Maw of course.

1) I believe the answer to question 1 is "Yriels Flagship" of the eldar fleet?

Im going to say Dominus Astra for the flagship, and Port Maw for the capital.

Wasn't Dominus Astra the name of the Flagship that used a warp engine detonation to destroy Hive Fleet Behemoth?

Port Maw is the answer to 2) so Barnster gets the Rep there, 1) is not Dominus Astra that's the only clue your getting

I don't mind how you get the answers, if some of you want to put your heads together I don't mind spreading the reward Rep between a group (e.g 5 Rep reward, so 5 Rep for 1 person or 1 Rep for 5 people).

Answer is Divine Right, ship of Lord Admiral Ravensburg. An Emperor class battleship.

All of this has happened before.
