@tekton Heh heh heh ... it is a cool model.
Question: Do you want a separate issue for Points Updates for Forgeworld Destruction and another for Compendium?

Might as well, I think there’s a compendium army I forgot to push at some point, too

I forget, did we ever make the lizardmen compendium army or no?
OftKilted

Jun 25 2018 20:45
@alphalas I thought we added it into seraphon? I wasn't paying much attention.
The fact that they were shiny dinosaurs riding dinosaurs was rather distracting.
Jon Kissinger

Jun 25 2018 20:46
I don’t think so?

@OftKilted

Hmm ... that's kindof the same situation/question I have with the Chaos Hellcannon.

I punted and temporarily added it to the Chaos Daemons catalog ... but there aren't points in it for that presently.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 25 2018 20:48
Because imo it probably should have it’s own cat with all the bespoke units from the “use these for this” list
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 25 2018 20:49
It's actually in the 'Warriors of Chaos' compendium ... I kinda want to see what happens to the Compendium catalogs from a semi-official statement for points.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 25 2018 20:49
Fair
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 25 2018 20:49
I could add it in a 'Warriors of Chaos' catalog instead.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 25 2018 20:49
I’m still thinking compendium armies should have separate cats tbh
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 25 2018 20:50
I think that when we have the new Battlescribe release that will make loads more sense.
And can do 'catalog libraries'
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 25 2018 20:51
Especially since there are things like tiqtaqto (I think it was; the terradon character from lizardmen) uses the character stats from the terradons
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 25 2018 20:52
Separate Cats do make sense. But using them as 'libraries' will be great ...
What, if anything do we need to do to address allegiance? Or will catalog libraries fix that issue?
i.e. Do we need an 'Allegiance:X' even if we have 'X' in the list of Categories?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 25 2018 20:54
from a category perspective
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 25 2018 20:54
YAS I actually remembered correctly lol
It was tiqtaq’to

@OftKilted

Tic ... tac ... to ... sigh

So ... do you have any thoughts on the 'modifiable' Pitched Battle profile?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 25 2018 20:56
All the old seraphon names were stupid like that lol
Uhhhhh....
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 25 2018 20:57
It basically has a 'switch' that allows you to select points levels (and it validates points used) ... and one that turns off all points validation and limits validation.
I've also added in 'Malign Sorcery' as a 'Category Type' so that the Endless spells can be dropped into it.
Well ... an RSE type ... there is a 'Keyword Category 'Endless Spells' as well ...
Jon Kissinger

Jun 25 2018 20:58
If we can make it work well with minimal additional code, go for it
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 25 2018 20:59
The only challenge I can see is needing to update anything that says 'Allies'
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 25 2018 20:59
Because yeah picking points during initial list creation is kinda meh
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 25 2018 21:00
I know, it is one serious feature that makes the Warscrollbuilder site pretty much 'quasi-superior' ... as I can make my list and go ... Oh ... I want this as a 2500 point list? No problem ... flip. Done.
At least quasi-superior from the perspective of limits tracking.
perhaps flexibility ... might be a better word
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 25 2018 21:01
Agreed
Flexibility is always good if it doesn’t cause excessive code
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 25 2018 21:02
It actually could decrease the requirement to have 3 instances of 'Allies' for items that hide due to being allies ... to one.
We would need to do some grep and replace on the lists though.
We also need to add an RSE update per catalog to support the additional Realm artefacts. I need to get that added into the 'How-to's'
I added in 'core support' for choosing an Army's Realm of Origin. That way the Realm Artefacts/Weapons could be leveraged and used. Entered the core skeleton for those artefacts into the gst as well.

Okay, I may be off on this, but for the Pitched Battle profiles, to make them more dynamic, can't we just increase the limits if more than X point limit in roster?
That way could do just one Pitched Battle profile, if they set the point limit then it will restrict. Actually, by that logic, just have one selection of Army, and if they choose a point limit it can impose restrictions
Sorry, I've been dropping in to see if the rules have leaked yet, I'm lurking

@cartag we could change that. But Matched Play does some explicit points definitions (though there is a +/- 250 points option now in official).
The problem I could see is that by changing the game type on the fly it won’t “error” and provide the validation. If you go over the limit you’ve just bumped into the next points level until you hit 2500 points ...
