@/all Looks like we're down to the Chaos FAQ updates!
(And 'stupidity validation' checks.)

@/all I split up the Chaos FAQ updates in issue 255 into the four books affected. The changes for Grand Alliance: Chaos book have already been applied. Only the Khorne, Tzeentch and Nurgle remain. I'm working thru Khorne right now.

@rweyrauch I recall having already done the Tzeentch and Skaven ones

@OftKilted I checked the Skaven this morning and they are indeed done. The Khorne had already been updated as well.

Yep. Tzeentch is done through the 1.4 faq

Excellent. Chaos is complete then.

Though I apparently need to fix hiding for the Command Traits for non-generals. (Tzeentch Daemon Prince shows the issue)
I’ll take a look at it tonite

Complete, except for bug fixing. Which is pretty much true for all the catalogs now.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 08 2018 14:32
Okay. That means that we need to do some quick eyeball checks

The end (of v2.0) is near!
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 08 2018 14:35
That’s my build from v2.0 from ~12 hours ago
@alphalas How are your test checks going for v2.0?
Oh! I have a “fix” for hiding Battle Traits
IE if I have sub-Allegiance selected and select either a Command trait or Artefact from the GA that the sub-Faction traits and Artefacts are hidden
And If you select the sub-faction the GA Traits Hide

so it sounds like we're at the point where we should merge AoS 2.0 up to master?
I feel like we might also need to do a bit of advertising? Given it's been a while since there was last an update on AoS.

I've spoken with @GenWilhelm as he's one of the reddit Mods on the battlescribe forum.
I can drop up a post at TGA.community (the grand alliance)
@Mad-Spy I think we should take a 'last sanity check' to make sure that we didn't miss anything stupid and then do the merge, so probably thurs/fri?
We probably want to do a cross-post on the AOS Reddit forums.
We should probably get a conversation about what the next steps are for the catalogs.

What kind of support are we planning on providing for the Warhammer Legacy battletomes?Do we want to add in 'Wounds' as a point type to help address their lack of points?
Support for Skirmish / Path to Glory?
Battalion Validation, and Battle Trait 'validation'
Validation for 'cross catalog' battalions (Everchosen Battalions come to mind)

@Mad-Spy We probably want to stage some updated documentation on 'How do Allies Work in Battlescribe' 'How do I do 'Cross Catalog armies''

I'm just suggesting we merge, not release. We can probably crib a lot of the multi-faction stuff from 40k
Rick Weyrauch

A QA pass thru the catalogs is in order. At an absolute minimum all the units and battalions must be present and correctly pointed. I think we could release after this threshold has been met. Fixing
...bugs with the split catalogs is.much less painful now.
Some promotion is in order as I think quite a few AoS players have given up on Battlescribe.

I'm happy to promote in the Idoneth FB group

@Mad-Spy An excellent suggestion. A merge from v2.0 into Master is probably the best overall option, instead of a true 'release'.
@rweyrauch We currently have Compendium Battletomes as 'not-required' for the v2.0 release.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
May 08 2018 21:36
Yes, I'm not suggesting we release yet, just merge up. We can then QA and set a release date of maybe the 18th? If we think that's enough time?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 08 2018 21:51
@Mad-Spy Its reasonable to merge what we have into Master. I’ve got QA items that I’ve been adding into issues.
Definitely not ready for release yet.

@OftKilted A number of the requested compendium catalogs are in decent shape. These catalogs should be given lower priority wrt to testing and fixes for v2.0.
