Hey guys, per a request on the Facebook group for the faction, I added Death from the Skies stats/profiles/rules to the Eldar Corsairs file. Is there a release planned sometime soon or should I cut one now?
I'll wait until something like 4pm(US)EST and cut one if there's no further comment.

@flakpanda RE: #2428 if you want to check the GST, you can see how the detachments are set up for specialty forces. In BS2 we're moving the detachments to the individual data files, so the GST will be smaller.

To keep with naming convention, may want to add it as "DW Black Spear Strike Force" in the GST. If you're comfortable editing the GST in a text editor, you can edit it to copy the new entry where it should go alphabetically. The roster editor doesn't list things alphabetically by default, it just puts them in whatever order we have them in the GST
Was a pain in my ass until I figured that out with the Renegade Knights

The great thing though, is with BS2, and moving them to the data files, we'll be able to not have to scroll through seven dozen detachments to find the one we want. It will just have the ones available to everybody, then the ones for your faction.

We have a separate repo set up for it, wh40kbs2. There's a lot of nice features to it, like being able to count models and detect if an ancestor (way past parent) matches certain criteria.
