Not to sound bad, but remember to first close the issues regarding TE catalogue before moving on to Mont'ka and FE. :)

@amis92: What are we doing with Cadians, etc? I'm seeing a pattern here that the Supplement armies are not really supplements anymore.
It really seems like FSE is now part of C:TE, but with a Chapter Tactic-type thing going on.
since FSE and C:TE can both take all unit types, can both take a Hunter Contingent or Dawn Blade Contingent, etc.
And there's a note that basically says "any formation from C:TE can be said to be an FSE formation/detachment", but must then take Bonding Knifes and must select Signature Systems from FSE instead of C:TE.
so there's an argument here that we can DELETE the FSE supplement and merge it entirely with C:TE and simply add "FSE" as an option to the Detachments and the Formations.
that's why I wanted to know what we're doing with the Cadians. It seems like faction spam once we start adding all these little campaign-factions.

yeah well, I cannot take a fully responsible stance here as I do not have the rules. But from what you've provided, it seems like it is reasonable to do what you suggest. I cannot speech for Cadians at all, because I have no idea how Astra Militarum works, nor how do their update/alterations look like.

Also when you're at cleaning up, I think it's safe now to completely remove Apoc formations with the same names as the current ones from Damocles. So I think most of them. Guess GW's realized Apoc wasn't a thing for most people and brought Apoc to standard games anyway. :D

btw is any data author taking a look at the dakka thread? I have my eye on it for any DA related stuff, but since Kangodo went... I could at least inform people its no longer a good way to contact us.
