when a force weapon is not being used as such, or cannont be used as such (due to using a differnt psychic power that turn), does it act as a power weapon?
Yep, its a power weapon whether or not the force aspect of it used or not.
Yes it does act as a power weapon if you use a psycic ability in that turn but if you dont it has its force part still
What exactly do the words "slays the opponent outright" imply? Is it merely instant killing or is the opponent model sucked into the Warp or slain by a similarly horrible event? Why should it matter, you will most likely ask. Point is this: do Force weapon kills negate a Necron Lord's (with Resurrection Orb) WBB roll or do they count as mere instant killing and allow the Lord to rise again?
I am thinking of replacing my Chaplain with a Libby to see how psychic powers work out in practice...
Personally, I think that when someone(thing) is killed outright by a force weapon, I see it as their entire existance (soul) is severed, and they just cease to live. This varies race to race. Tyranids would have their conection w/the hive mind severed, killing them. Necrons would have what is left of their souls/consious thought suck from them, etc...
Think daemon weapon, for the good guys...
Anyway, I think it would be interesting to see a necron lord NOT get back up...I think you could use it as either, just make sure the more imaginative version is ok with your opponent.

The model is dead, regardless of the number of wounds it had.
This is not an Instant Death, so immunities to instant death do not apply.
A Necron Lord with a Resurection orb can still make his WBB roll.

Lately at my local shop we've run into a problem, can you Psychic Hood a Force Weapon? We've gotten 3 different anwsers form the staff, yes, no, and I have no idea. So maybe y'all could help.
i don't know description in other codex states the force ability as the blade sucking the soul from it's owner i don't think a lord coulf get up after that
the psy hood is a definate yes, the force power needs a psy test and thus is effected by the hood or even an inquisiters pentiants

i read somewhere on the forum that a psychic hood can stop a power if the power requires a psychic test. but im not sure how accurate that is.
It also says that no 'inate' abilities may be psychic hooded. Force weapon would count under this.
