So anyway to join this project? I have experience and some experience editing files.

Depends if anyone is willing to give up their cat(s)
AOS isn't nearly as complicated as 40k so not sure if there will be anyone but certainly doesn't hurt to ask

Just found the maintainers list. Looks like some people maintaining death and destruction solo. Would be glad to help.

@SSSlippy Death is ... complicated. (Mainly Nighthaunt and Legions ... being complicated ... probably overly so.
Do you have anything in particular you’re interested in?
@tekton is the Destruction guru.

Destruction has a few minor issues but is mostly solid thanks to being underserved

Honestly I can fill in. Mainly play stormcast myself but that seems to be filled. I see death is complicated. More then I understand it probably. I will sit back and just report bugs for now. :)

@SSSlippy the best thing you can probably do is same as I've been doing, which is comb through the destruction scrolls and faqs and see if anything's out of place
like stuff missing unbind allowances, etc

@SSSlippy There are plenty of Order catalogs where you could help out (Fyreslayers, Sylvaneth). Let me know if you are interested. Otherwise, helping with validation, testing of the catalogs is very helpful. There is a ton of data in the various catalogs and keeping it all correct requires a lot of attention.

Hey all, I had a quick query. I've got a few SSEGs that are only accessible to certain units (e.g. Starchaser Forms for HEROs on TAURALONs). I've been using 'Ancestor not instance of KEYWORD' to perform validation but it isn't working. I was certain I'd used this functionality before somewhere (possibly the DoK cat?) but obviously as it isn't working I was hoping someone could point out the correct way to do it.

@FreylisUK Why do you need to check for instance of hero! Are you linking it somewhere that needs that validation?
Bleaugh ... That should be “hero?” Not “hero!”
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 13 2018 13:36
@SSSlippy Right now, one of the weaknesses we have is validation of Catalog implementation ... (QA testing) and then bug reporting on those. That ... would be insanely helpful ... @rweyrauch is completely correct.

Interestingly enough, the most recent “Legends” publication doesn’t actually appear to remove any armies, it just explicitly gives rules for some of the army heroes... (which had already been effectively removed from the 2017 Warscroll Compendiums)

So I called custserv and got the date for when wolf riders should be back
I'm going to buy 40
sadly I'll have to use shattered dominion bases because the regular 60mm ovals are out of stock too
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 13 2018 16:15
Yeah ... they don’t fsxking have the 70ish ovals ....
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jul 13 2018 16:15
I'm already considering rebasing my ogres to shattered dominion, so I think I might go ahead with that, I do like the bases
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 13 2018 16:16
They’re pretty nice, IMO
And they’re not resin.
I saw a bunch of Kharadron based on the 40k Imperial sector bases.

I bought shattered dominion for my seraphon
They are nice af
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 13 2018 16:31
Yeah .... my entire Tzeentch army has been based on those, (except for the exalted Flamer and Ogroid... as they don’t have a 75mm oval and a 50mm round)
Oh and Chaos Spawn ... again no 50mm
And ... I don’t have to deal with sand on the bases...

now you're making me want to get a box for my spirit hosts and orruks...
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 13 2018 16:43
Yeah .... yeah ... except aren’t they on 50’s?...
You’d need to use the large basing kit, and “make your own” 50mm bases
tekton
@tekton
Jul 13 2018 16:45
that's fine with me really
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 13 2018 16:46
Well ... the large base detail kit is pretty awesome also ...

@WindstormSCR shaman should be correct for gitmob since i just copy/pasted from the wonderful pdf; i'm afk for a bit to pick my wife up from the airport
Simon Barlow

Jul 13 2018 18:20
@OftKilted No, you're right about HERO not being required, but I'd still like to validate against the mount type.
I can manually add the correct SSEGs to the unit entries and ignore validation entirely, but I'd like to keep all of the mount traits in a single SSEG for consistency of implementation.

@SSSlippy Welcome! If you have the time to help test the file I've just pushed a release candidate of the SE catalogue to my testing branch (master-freylisuk). There are some known bugs that I'll work through over the next few of days, but if you spot anything it's worth opening an issue and adding your notes to it.

@tekton thank you, because I'm about to buy 40 wolf riders and convert ~5 of them into wolf-mounted gitboss/shamans

@tekton
Jul 13 2018 22:16
after reading through that warscroll i'm thinking about doing something similar :P
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jul 13 2018 22:17
gitmob might be the sleeper success of 2.0
for destro
at least until moonclan tome
because you can just spam wolves as battleline and the little shits have a 4+ save
or be an asshole and use moonclan spears and a pile of gitmob bow grots as destro battleline
then mass grot wizards
I'm going to make "not crooked moons"
with "not skarsnik"
lol
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jul 13 2018 22:25
if you just need dispells though, the cheapest they get for destro is wurrgog prophets
70/per, though gitmob shamans aren't bad for 80/per with the ability to shrug wounds to nearby units
tekton
@tekton
Jul 13 2018 22:27
not as big a fan of the wurrgog prophet model
right now just trying to figure out how to get all the leader models i want in :P
WindstormSCR

Jul 13 2018 22:35
what's your current army setup? could find a decent proxy
or make one out of different kits and bits
tekton
@tekton
Jul 13 2018 22:36
i'm trying to not proxy too much yet ;)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jul 13 2018 22:36
its orcs, you can get away with it for leaders :P
just keep a standard one handy for tourneys
tekton
@tekton
Jul 13 2018 22:36
it's true, but the goal is to use this for a learning army for our group
I'm just going to be TO for our local AoS tournaments this next year, starting the planning for after I'm done with our Shadespire tournament
