The team I want to play doesn't even exist in minatures world, only in the PC game (Khorne)

Haha. I'm wanting to do dwarfs or wood elves.

I figured the stand alone teams are going for around $35
I think they're in the Season 1 book, just no new minis yet
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 16:25 UTC
oh the rules are?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 26 2016 16:25 UTC
my preferred race doesn't exist anymore >.>
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 16:25 UTC
Maybe I'll pick that up sometime then and just ebay some minis
The other things you'd get with the box are the pitch, the dugouts, and card deck... I know they're doing more pitches in the future, not sure on dugouts or decks though

Tomb Kings weren't a race for Blood Bowl anyway, there's vampires and undead though
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 16:33 UTC
Yea, TK was squatted :(

I'm waiting for undead to be put out in the new BB
I have 3 start collecting skeleton hordes
I want to use them

They will likely follow the same roster rules that the old version did. They're not changing that part up too drastically
if anything, it would just be how many of each type you can bring or their stats
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 26 2016 16:35 UTC
there was a TK team - nobody referred to then as TK, they were called Khemri in BB
They had mummies and bone giants.
anyone have a epub of deathwatch?
only thing i have digitally is a super-crappy photoscan
cartag
@cartag
Nov 26 2016 16:41 UTC

@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 16:41 UTC

@alphalas I have Deathwatch ePub
I have pretty much stopped buying physical books because I have nowhere to store them when they are not current, and I hate throwing them away because the fluff and art/painting is ace...
anyway, how would you like it?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 20:23 UTC
Is it apple?
*from itunes
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2016 20:24 UTC
nah, ePub3 from Black Library - I don't have any of the iOS crud in my life... I know it is good, I just don't like being locked into a particular environment that hard...
anyway, it is not from iTunes :-)
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 20:24 UTC
Noice
Throw it on a dropbox and I'll convert it to pdf if you want
And no, itunes is crap for sharing epubs
Fairplay is a bitch and a half to crack (Fairplay is their DRM)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2016 20:25 UTC
okey dokey, I'll put it up and send a link
try that...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 20:44 UTC
Converting now :)
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 21:25 UTC
Huh, this takes a while to convert it seems
when it's done i'll post it :)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2016 21:25 UTC
no problems :-)
I found ePub2 works in Chrome (i.e. Google Play Book) ePub3 does not... so perhaps it is a better/different encoding which takes longer to convert...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 21:26 UTC
Yea, it's more xml embedded i'm guessing.
I use Calibre to convert
It's still flattening the xml it seems
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2016 21:49 UTC
that must be some lumpy xml...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 21:50 UTC
Yea, I stopped calibre - trying another converter
60m is an insane time to save HTML to a bunch of images
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2016 21:51 UTC
anyway, I managed to fix the Dark Reaper bug "properly" I'm 100% happier with the file now than I was before, I've committed that change and one other little upgrade for the Aspect Host formation, the next question is exactly how do I release it??
yah, I mean the images are pretty flashy...
I did read the developer guide, and I nearly tried a release before, but I was wondering how you create the two compressed files that are attached to all the other releases in the history...
btw - epub3 chrome reader
"Draft New Release"
Use this as your change log: Full Changelog: https://github.com/BSData/wh40k/compare/v5.0.18...v5.0.19 (Change the version numbers from the last/new to whatever tag you use)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2016 22:03 UTC
and then it adds the files itself??
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 22:04 UTC
aye
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2016 22:06 UTC
fabliarse :-) I'll give that a whirl in a minute then, just having a twiddle with the Corsair cat...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 22:10 UTC
I give up. Nothing I try till convert these epubs
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2016 22:11 UTC
uhuh, I was hoping to be able to upload them to Google Play, then I can read them anywhere ... unfortunately Google Play won't load ePub3 - it does load ePub2 though, so my Eldar Craftworld Codex is fair game :-)
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 26 2016 22:12 UTC
Hrm
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2016 22:31 UTC
@GenWilhelm will you be doing a release later?
(or are you preparing one now??
)
ok, well, I got excited and just (hopefully) published my first release :-) easier than I thought in the end. In other news, I didn't manage to get my head around the Corsair CAT - that thing does not look pretty to my (un)trained eye...
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2016 22:46 UTC
sleepy time, I'll check in the morning if my release worked properly and things have updated to my phone :-)

Orcs v Skaven, I lost 1-3, but I'm counting it as a win because my orcs killed two of his players.
