@OftKilted The updated Readme looks good.

@tekton Orcs and goblins Gitboss (goblin boss on wolf) is uncategorized, also the O&G cat is throwing errors because it doesn't default to destruction allegiance (it has no allegiance thing at all)
Also minor QoL thing, can you have destruction cats default to grand alliance instead of specific allegiance? this behavior mimics warscroll builder and azyr, but more importantly make grand alliance armies less of a pain to build because of having to go through and change all the alliance switches with every new list
not as important for chaos/death/order because most of the used factions there have battletomes/abilities, but dest is most likely to use GA over specific alleg unless you're running ironjawz :(

@WindstormSCR I saw most of those over the weekend, there were also some stuff that didn’t have defaults anymore :(

@WindstormSCR So ... the question is .. for cats that have an allegiance, why should one default to the Grand alliance?

Ease of use mostly
if you are just using allegiance, its one switch for one cat

For you? Or in general?

That one I will probably leave as is, there’s enough destruction players I know that would not like that change

if you're using GA, you have to switch Every single cat in your mix back to GA
which on mobile can take a while

If a faction has an allegiance, I would think that we would want to leave it at the faction allegiance

even on desktop it can be tricky just making sure you got them all

Basically it stops the “none of my allegiance traits are available”

For those that have “no reason” to be their own maybe, but that becomes inconsistent pretty quick...

We had issues with that and Stormcast a while back
So ... anyone know if the new version of the editor is functional with current version of mobile?

true, I keep trying to forget just how few people seem to be able to use basic observation skills when it comes to battlescribe
or basic ciritcal thinking, or basic problem solving.
I guess I'll just live with it, or create a basic list template and "save as"

@mdtm1g14 Any thoughts on #595 and #596 ?

@OftKilted If @mdtm1g14 is still on holiday, I can take the ID issues.

@OftKilted @rweyrauch I am now back, arrived in the UK early hours of yesterday, had a brief look last night but got slightly confused, creating a branch from master when I open the Idoneth cat there is a link with no target that throws an error and if I delete it and save the change log appears to show that it is the realm artifacts that have been removed, has there been a change in the way they are done?
In terms of the issues #595 is really easy, but I will have to have a bitore of a look into #596 and see what other cats have done but think I have a solution in mind
Should allegiance default to the faction?

@mdtm1g14 So, basically what I did for validation was to select the RSE (which had the battle role validation configured) and copy it into the Battalion.
You can do it the same way by just adding the battle role to the selection link in the battalion.
@mdtm1g14 Yes. It should default to the Faction Allegiance. If it has no faction allegiance, then it should default to the grand alliance.
@mdtm1g14 Hmmm ... I haven't changed the realm artefacts in the GST.
I can take a quick peek at the cat in about 8 hours when I get back to a system with the editor installed.

@OftKilted maybe @rweyrauch could have a quick look at that as I was away for that stuff but I can get started on the rest, is there a nice way to handle units that are sometimes battleline and sometimes not?
I can have a check this evening anyway and do what I can
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 17 2018 15:35
@mdtm1g14 So, when handling units for battalions, I create an SEG named to what the requirement is.
I then copy both RSE's for the unit into the SEG.
You can see a examples in the Tzeentch and Khorne catalogs.

@OftKilted :+1: I'll give that a look over tonight

The Aether-eater Host battalion is an excellent example
Potentially the 'Warpflame Host' as well ... because the Burning Chariot changes from battleline to 'other' depending on whether the general is a 'herald of tzeentch on Burning chariot'

aaaaaah
that list probably won because of the Hag
that warscroll is pretty damn op at the moment with all the magic flying around
trying that without the hag would get you owned by spell damage
as I have found to my cost
also IDK why Bols is talking about run distances when there is no mechanism in that list to run and charge
no jorlbad present

@WindstormSCR Probably for the same reason that the official “Stormcast” podcast talking about Khorne 101 was touting “Goretide Battalion as awesome” when they were probably really thinking Gore Pilgrims. Basically they had nobody who actually cares a whit about Khorne on the show.
Or actually plays them.

the real reason he won wasn't the run speed, it was the +1 to hit and double pile ins
