And ... Command points appear as though they may be replacing reinforcement points... at a 1CP for 50 points ratio for the new v2.0
Hearing rumors that Artefacts may cost CP...

I mean it sounds like they are borrowing and then tweaking things from 40k

Heroes that aren’t “Monsters” are at -1 to hit if within 3” of a unit of at least 3 models
I’m cautiously optimistic.

I'm withholding judgment until I see the entire set of changes.
Curious to see how the changes to magic work.

The persistent spells will be interesting to see in practice.

@rweyrauch @Mad-Spy Thoughts on what to do with Slaves to Darkness and faction specific Artefacts/Command Traits for the individual chaos gods? Should the applicable Allegiance traits be added into the GST? Or duplicated across multiple catalogs?
@alphalas Thoughts?
It’s also potentially relevant to Everchosen. (Thinking the everchosen warbands.)

Don't Everchosen warbands require Everchosen allegiance?
OftKilted
@OftKilted

Nope.
“A battalion can still be part of any allegiance that all its units have on their warscrolls.”
So, the Fatesworn Warband could be part of a CHAOS or TZEENTCH Allegiance Army.

Well, that's annoying :smile:

If we had proper child catalogs... but that is another version of Battlescribe
It’s like all of the applicable Allegiance Abilities can be taken by StD units once properly marked. (Assuming all other traits are met.)
It’s like needing to include Archaon in Nurgle, Khorne, Slaanesh, and Tzeentch armies.
(Things that make you go argh....)

Which you can do by adding the catalogue.

For named units ... sure. They don’t get Artefacts or Command Traits
The Gaunt Summoner (everchosen version) can take Tzeentch Command Traits and Artefacts in a Tzeentch Allegiance Army.
Or should be able to. (Can’t currently.)
However, the Gaunt summer (everchosen version) can’t take Arcanite Abilities, or join any of the Arcanite battalions. (No Arcanite keyword)
I’m a bit leery of making huge changes before the full news comes out on 2.0. We really haven’t seen enough to make wholesale changes ...

The god allegiance abilities probably need to move to the gst (for now at least). But tbh I don't feel like we should bother before 2.0 is released, because we already know there are going to be a whole bunch of changes.
OftKilted
@OftKilted

And then the issue is Command Traits with an entirely new currency...
And how Artefacts will eventually turn out to be managed.
Iain Launchbury

Plus any change to how allegiances work.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 21 2018 19:34
Like ... how do you track the combination of Command Points available... there isn’t a truly easy way to display that without making something a point cost.
At least, not that I’m aware of.
Especially if we have to use CP in the army creation process.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
May 21 2018 19:35
We'll probably have to do something like that. As it's +1 per battalion.
It shouldn't need a power like the one in 40k to get more relics, if it stays as 1 per battalion.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 21 2018 19:42
I still think that we should add Wounds as a point cost.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
May 21 2018 19:43
Maybe wait and see if ppl want it?
It's a ton of work if it's not wanted.

Valid point.
Figuring out how to leverage the current catalogs for Skirmish might be a better overall time spent.
I suppose it depends on what happens with the Compendium Battletomes.
