No you can only use the Forgeworld codex and the ork codex together. You won't be able to use the Ghazkull stuff.
2) Meka Dreads use their Warlord trait to join a squad of Deff Dreads, if I run 2 Meka Dreads can both join squads or not?
No, you can only have one warlord in the forgeworld dread mob because once you have the other HQ choice you lose the warlord trait to join the dread squad.
3) For Buzzgobs Kustom Stompa. Which ruleset should I use?
The most current rules are always the ones to use.
4) Can I use the Great Waaagh or Green tide FoC with the Dreadmob army?
If you have enough points to run two formations together than you can but you are going to have two week portions of an army. It is usually best to choose one and use that army.
Many Thanks.
I run the forgeworld dreadmob often so it is a fun army to run.

In general when using rules from across multiple books between GW proper (C:Orks, & Ghazkull) and ForgeWorld (IA:8) assume that things cannot be mixed - if you want to use the dread mob rule set, you must pay the points and items as described and allowed in IA8, and do so unless the book itself mentions to use the ork codex.

Also do note that IA8 is a rather old book now (I can't remember if they ever did a reprint of it) and is probably outdated for a lot of things.

So in short the answer is "No", however if you discuss with your friends and house rule it then you could - if you were planning on attending some sort of event then do not expect any such considerations.


2) Meka Dreads use their Warlord trait to join a squad of Deff Dreads, if I run 2 Meka Dreads can both join squads or not?

As I am not an ork player I would assume "no" without being able to read the rule - some times it states that it can or cannot with statements such as "a single ____ may be taken as a _____ instead".

3) For Buzzgobs Kustom Stompa. Which ruleset should I use?

If possible use the most recent ruleset provided, if there are multiple references to it, then either use the book that you are using to build a list from. Do note that whichever book *assuming its printed in Ghazgull & IA* you purchase from it uses that books rules - even if it is either more costly, or worse.

4) Can I use the Great Waaagh or Green tide FoC with the Dreadmob army?

I would so "no" once again, mostly because IA8 was written long ago where formations were only available in Apocalypse, so unless FW has produced a FAQ (didn't see anything on their website) addressing any such questions then my default answer is "use what is provided in the book - do not mix books" for all things used in your questions.

Many Thanks.
I tend to be pretty negative about allowing things to be mixed between FW & GW proper - as I generally think that FW stuff is more balanced than GW (at least at the time of writing of the books).

Alas I can only ask that you ask the people that you play with what THEY are comfortable with, as certain things may be differ from each player.
