Right, in the rules pack for the '08 Warhammer GT, it states that objectives and table quarters cannot be claimed by a single model. So, does this mean that the following types of creatures cannot claim objectives?
Casket of Souls etc (you get the idea)
If it does (which is my reading of the rule) then it massivly alters the types of armies which will be seen at the GT this year.
You are correct in you reading of the rules, and in your assumption that it will alter the lists which are being taken.
The double steam tank list is now very risky indeed as it cannot take table quarters/objectives and there is 600 points of army!
Should make it more interesting anyway
Arms are an instrument of evil, No measure for thoughtful men until there fail all other choice but sad acceptance of it.

Not sure what the full wording is, but "single model" would imply that dragons cannot, but a dragon with a rider can as they are separate. Same with Steg's with their skink crew, and the war alter + arch lector. Might even be able to argue that the steam tank has a crew, so it's not a single model. That would be a stretch, though.
Too lazy to go find & read the full GT wording, though, so take that with a grain of salt. :p
No they can not, as they are a single model. you dont have a (for instance) an elf lord and a dragon, you have an elf lord riding a dragon. You dont target them seperatly with missiles except in cases stating you may, "pick out", implying you can't normaly anyway. Ergo your above list is correct
Starshowerblade is right, but with 40% of the armies tagged as daemons, and 20% as VC,it was going to be a very different GT to normal anyway, with many of the rule changes made to try and stop fast moving unit strength 5 units from being both combat monsters and viable objective winners, i.e. bloodthirsters.
