This may have been asked before, but:

If I controll Hope's end, and it is empty of ground forces, and I use the "gain two shock troopes" ability, what do I get?

1) 1 GF and one shock troop?
2) 2 GF? (since no GF was there to keep the Shock troops Shock troops)
3) something else (e.g. a headache)?
4) the ability can't be used?

You technically get 2 Shock Troops, but one of them immediately reverts to a GF. So in practice, it's basically equivalent to #1.

I was thinking that it could be 2 ground forces as well, since you get the 2 shock troops at the same time -> no GF present, both revert to GFs?

Option 1

It is similar to have 3ST and 1GF on a planet and having someone local unrest it. The GF leaves and 3ST are found by themselves. 1 becomes a GF not all 3. The same would apply to Hope's End.

I don't want to be nitpicking, but is this written somewhere (in the FAQ?)
In your example, one could simply use lose a shock troop instead of the GF, the result is the same without a "timing problem".

It is not in the FAQ but you can go to FFG support page and send in a rules question to get a formal answer from Corey at FFG.
