LoL. We didn’t have the new gst done a week ago. And we’re still ironing out best practice stuff for data entry in the .cat files
@Mad-Spy has been seriously instrumental and helpful. Another set of eyes is good stuff
I’m being pretty thorough on the Death entries. But as we’re still@working out the display nuts and bolts ... even some of the best practices for consistency on unit entry it’s still a work in progress.
I’m mainly a WHQ and Skirmish kind of person.
That and painting

The Geedub consistency regarding allies ... especially for chaos brought out the Brimstone Horror in me.

I’ll grab them when I get home from rehearsal tonight- destruction needs attention eh? I can start there a bit I guess
If nothing else I can do thongs in a way that will cause a lot of random discussion and sweeping changes @Mad-Spy ;)
(And create humorous typos)

Guess I should go buy a destruction army...

hey @tekton if you could get TK done first i’d be grateful ;)
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 00:44
@tekton Only if it jumps at you and excites you. We’re all just here to get the data in. :) I grabbed the Shadespire sets and have been enjoying painting those up myself. Ironskull’s Boys look amusing. But the new Death herald is sweet as well.
Tomb Kong’s?
Kings
@alphalas Tomb Kings? Or am I off in my abbreviations?
tekton
@tekton
Feb 16 2018 00:46
I was going to get at least a Sylvaneth army and the destruction units to support the goblin herald @OftKilted - this just swaps that order
@alphalas @OftKilted I can do tomb kings at some point, but these cats are more compacted than 40k- and we all know how well two people working on the same file seems to go...
Though @alphalas they are pretty much abandoned :(
OftKilted

@alphalas welll... don’t tell @tekton but I’m actually working through the TK Compendium ...
tekton
@tekton
Feb 16 2018 00:52
@OftKilted I think orruks are the strongest shadespire warband right now, most flexible, etc
I’m here to help, so if you’re good on the TK then my help isn’t needed ;)
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 00:53
(With @Mad-Spy still working on finalizing the overall plan the TK forces were easy as they don’t have Allies ... :)
Nagash ... however... is insane.
And only 800 points ....
@tekton Garrick’s Reavers have been fun to paint. My issue with Destruction is the lack of support in WHQ... and the only adversaries are Grot Spiderlings ....
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 16 2018 00:57
@OftKilted yup, the death force that arguably could have been order if not for nagash
yes i know they're abandoned; but i still love them lol
tekton
@tekton
Feb 16 2018 01:05
I like them too @alphalas - seeing them painted up makes me wish they still made them
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 01:10
Unfortunately the issue was old world geography.... the world location for TK was not good to allow real interaction that didn’t seem forced between the rest of the old world :(
We have a TK player locally ... and he still wrecks face ... even with the new Compendium rules. (And against the new Death book)

We already have a beastclaw player in our area, I can't play eight legged demons, so Ironjawz it iz

Wait ... spiders? You can’t play spiders ...
Spider Clan grots are amusing

@/all, Implementation Guidelines are now updated with details of how to configure RSEs. Please read and check it makes sense and if not let me know.

@OftKilted

Woot!

Clarity of what the items are in the diagram ... ie what this is based on.
My assumption is as follows:
“Pitched Battle Faction” (this is the sse for Pitched Battle Factions)
No Faction is a PBF
Warherds is a PBF

Allegiance:Warherd is the allegiance of the Unit if the Unit can fit under a specific non-Grand Alliance Allegiance

Allegiance:Chaos is the Grand Alliance of the Unit

If there is an additional allegiance that a unit can work under is there an additional?

For example:
Clan Pestilins - Allegiance: Pestilins, Allegiance: Nurgle

Slaves To Darkness also comes to mind...

@Mad-Spy If you have to modify the Standard RSE ... to accommodate the Battlefield role RSE are these the same RSE? A different RSE?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 16 2018 16:07
it's a modified version of the standard RSE, not a replacement.
you don't need to @ me every time. :)
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 16:07
When is that used?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 16 2018 16:07
If you have a Battlefield role change, you need to make the "standard" role be hidden when the faction is chosen.
hence the highlighted changes need to be mde.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 16:11
Clarity on when the cases are used would be helpful
For example... this is required for all “battleline units”
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 16 2018 16:13
except it's not.
because some units are always Battleline
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 16:13
Precisely.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 16 2018 16:16
I've updated the page. Is that better?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 16:17
So, the battlefield Role RSE section should be used when a Unit can become Battleline by the choice of either an Allegiance or a specific general (or both)?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 16 2018 16:18
yes
I've renamed it to Battlefield Role Switch RSE now
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 16:18
Can we add that statement in the top (potentially as an above line 1)?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 16 2018 16:18
It's in the first bullet point of the whole RSE section
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 16:21
“switch Battlefield Role based on Allegiance” to “switch Battlefield Role based on Allegiance (and/or) General”
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 16 2018 16:22
doing that now ;)
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 16:30
So, clarification on creating the “General” piece would be helpful ...
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 16 2018 16:31
as in the "General" SSE?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 16 2018 16:32
The sse for the forces General
Referenced in the switch rse part 3
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 16 2018 16:34
It's in the Allegiance & PBF section (which I've just renamed). I don't like the new name, but I can't think of a better one right now.
Are you able to edit the page?
If so, just do it and I'll review the changes later. I'm just leaving work now so I'll be ofline for a bit.

@WindstormSCR
Feb 16 2018 21:10
my area doesn't have a shadespire group of any size, or I might get into it
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 16 2018 21:10
I'm just playing games with a mate at work, but we've got all 6 warbands between us, so we get a decent amount of variation.
It's great because you can easily fit a game in a lunch hour

@tekton

Next month my goal is to pick up the starter, skeletons, and orruks

The other sets have cards that are useful in the game. Skaven and Fireslayers are out this weekend.
