Questions about Stormcasts and Sylvaneth in a Living Cities army

Question

1) I gather that Stormcasts and Sylvaneth in a Living Cities army gain the Cities of Sigmar keyword, does this replace the Stormcast Eternals/Sylvaneth keywords or is it in addition?

2) If it replaces, then does this make any abilities and spells that affect friendly Stormcast/Sylvaneth useless? Or does the keyword in the ability/spell description also change to Cities of Sigmar?

3) Do any Dryads spawned in a Wyld Wood by a Branchwraith also gain the Cities of Sigmar keyword?

4) Can Dryads be spawned as above if this will take the total mumbers of Sylvaneth units over the 1 in 4 limit? (either in total or minus any Sylvaneth units that have been totally killed off earleir in the battle) e.g.  3 of my 12 units on the table are Sylvaneth, would this block me from summoning a 4th?

5) Can the army make use of Stormacast or Sylvaneth battalions? (provided of course the associated units don't break the 1 in 4 limit)?

6) Has GW yet provided any clarity on the "Can Sylvaneth magic users in a Living City army use Verdant Blessing?" debate? The googling I've done seems split between yes and no and lots of calls for a FAQ, has this been forthcoming?

7) Can a Living Cityarmy have Stormcast and/or Sylvaneth as traditional allies in additon to those in the 1 in 4 non allies role?

8 ) Does ANYONE actually like the Branchwriath model or does everyone kitbash a Branchwych or Dryad mini?

Sorry it's a lot but they are of a theme and didn't want to spam the forum with 7 different but related questions.

1 & 2: It is in addition to, they keep all their original keywords as well.

3: No

4: Yes, it is only the initial list bound by that restriction. This goes for others as well such as limits on behemoths etc.

5: Technically no, but the rules surrounding battalions are pretty vague in certain places to keep eyes out for an eratta/faq.

6: No. Some people are just trying to metagame the system.

7: No. This is covered in the allies list of the CoS battletome.

8: People usually convert one out of the dryad kit with some extra bits.

6) At the start of the Sylvaneth allegiance section it states the spell lore is available if you meet this requirement.  CoS wizards are not in a Sylvaneth allegiance.  You have to be playing Sylvaneth for the allegiance abilities.  This has been covered a bit in the Sylvaneth thread,.. or CoS, thread.  I guess,... personal conclusion from reading said threads I feel it's a no.

8 ) yes very much so.  she's a classic Juan Diaz sculpt and the better the painter you are the more you like the model.  I've painted her 3 times and the last 2 I sure noticed it's a better model than I originally thought.  

Have you considered posting these in the Sylvaneth and/or CoS sub thread?  I would suggest you read them through at least the more recent dozen or so pages.  Might help guide you :)
