the heralds are saying max 4 period in a parent, period. but for the Heralds Anachric formation i can take up to 9 heralds
but throwing a error when i add more than 4
cartag
@cartag
Dec 12 2016 03:08
Daemonic Heralds is a selection in their codex that lets you bring up to four. Heralds Anarchic is something different

Thanks for the laughter, I guess.
This looks like it was a holdover from the last person who had it before me

well, you have been going hard on CSM the last 2 weeks
cartag
@cartag
Dec 12 2016 03:13
yeah, and tonight's really not the time I want to be working on it. By "just died," i mean "in the last hour and a half"
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Dec 12 2016 03:14
and by “died” you mean corrupted?
cartag
@cartag
Dec 12 2016 03:14
No, I mean my pet cat that I've had for eleven years is fucking dead.
I'm not handling shit well right now, sorry

Hey @flakpanda @FarseerVeraenthis - squad crull in the deathwatch cat on iOS can only be selected in a Aquila kill team - should be available in all the kill teams, shouldn't it?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Dec 12 2016 13:31
Firstly, @cartag that sucks, like, proper bad news, I'm sending my electronic sympathy for what it's worth...
Otherwise, yes, you should be able to select Squad Crull wherever you could choose a squad of Veterans... And the same with squad galateal apart from teams where you have to have something other than Veterans and vanguards...
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Dec 12 2016 13:39
Looking at the codex again, Galateal will only fit in Aquila and Dominatus kill teams, otherwise you end up with more than ten models when you include must haves...
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 12 2016 14:36
Correct

Dec 12 2016 21:38
Theoretically, according to fluff, IW are not aligned, but lean khorne. Just saying ;)
cartag
@cartag
Dec 12 2016 21:39
I'm guessing this same guy would want to bring it in EC. RAW that's allowed. Does that makes sense too?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 12 2016 21:40
That makes less sense
cartag
@cartag
Dec 12 2016 21:40
or a Lord of Skulls with Death Guard
or Blight Drones with a Thousand Sons list.
How about a Nurgle aligned Knight with World Eaters?
IW are not allowed any units that come with marks, nor can the units they bring be upgraded to include marks. Same thing for Night Lords.
Same thing for Alpha Legion
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 12 2016 21:42
Your point is made - I was just being a smartass about IW because they tend to lean khorneate
cartag
@cartag
Dec 12 2016 21:42
Are you sure? I have more.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 12 2016 21:43
Positive
Iron Warriors are just one of those gray areas – because they are known to use demon engines extensively – which to me means a brass scorpion or Lord of skulls isn't that far out of the unusual for them.
cartag
@cartag

IRON WARRIORS SPECIAL RULES
Any Detachment with the Chaos Space Marines Faction can be from one of the nine Traitor Legions. An Iron Warriors Detachment retains the Chaos Space Marines Faction and is treated in all ways as a Chaos Space Marines Detachment, with the following modifications:
• They cannot include any Unique units.
• Units that have a Mark of Chaos cannot be taken.
• Units cannot be upgraded to take any Marks of Chaos.
• All units that can do so must be upgraded to Veterans of the Long War, at no additional points cost.
Explain to me how that makes sense with a Lord of Skulls or a GBS
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 12 2016 21:47
...that's just dumb
cartag
@cartag
Dec 12 2016 21:47
Same wording exists for Night Lords and Alpha Legion
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 12 2016 21:48
I see what you're saying- and by that I'd tend to lean with your interpretation
But it smacks against the fluff
IW aren't khorne, but beserkers are very common amongst them
Dumb

Ugh long day in the warehouse

@cartag
Dec 12 2016 22:02
Did my suggestion make sense?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 12 2016 22:03
Yeah I misread the in formation as out of formation
Detachment whatever

@alphalas I would be happy to keep the inquisition, but i'm going out of town the day the new book drops, so unless someone I can get the book by say Wednesday, I won't have a chance to get the Cat updated until after Christmas.
Hopefully either people will be patient (hardly likely) or one of you guys can help me out with whatever changes are actually made that I don't know about.
Based on what I've heard so far today, it is mostly a cut and past job, so I'll go ahead and add the text for all of the special rules tomorrow, and organize the file, make sure all the profiles and rules are shared, and try to get it ready for the deconstruction of the Henchmen unit that is supposedly part of this new book.

If someone else is Eager to Take over Inquisition I'm fine with that too, I was mainly offering because it seemed orphaned.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 12 2016 23:27
If you don't mind I'll take it off your hands - then I'll have every non-astartes imperial and go
Gk*
Troy Graber
@tag8833
Dec 12 2016 23:28
Sure. I've already got the existing rules retyped, so let me upload my changes, and then it is all yours.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 12 2016 23:29
:+1:
Oh, and to @flakpanda and @FarseerVeraenthis - I'll have C:IA digital Saturday and will upload it again
Obviously there won't be the DRM issue this time

@alphalas I've got my changes uploaded. Have at it.

Jawhol @flakpanda
Thanks @tag8833 appreciate the work you did
Troy Graber
@tag8833
Dec 12 2016 23:49
It wasn't much. I had planned to do a bunch more, but I have no problem leaving that honor to you.
I just finished painting 3 ordo malleus inquisitors, Coteaz, 12 Inquisition Acolytes, 2 Priests, 6 Inquisition Psykers, and 6 inquisition Chimeras only to find my list idea blown up before it made it to the table
Thanks GW. If only I'd know about the new inquisition book about 2 weeks earlier, I would have held off purchasing all of that.
Hopefully the new book will have some way for me to make use of most of that.
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Dec 12 2016 23:52
I mean, it could very well be damn near the same
Like DW is in there even tho they just got a book.
Troy Graber
@tag8833
Dec 12 2016 23:53
the reports are that the inquisition psyker is gone, and the inquisition detachment only allows 1 inquisitor now
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Dec 12 2016 23:53
Ah. Well...
Troy Graber
@tag8833
Dec 12 2016 23:54
I'll probably repaint them as Astra Militarum and run a psycanna division.
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Dec 12 2016 23:54
I'm kinda interested to see if GK change at all.
The FAQ about units casting psychic power kinda screwed them more
Troy Graber
@tag8833
Dec 12 2016 23:56
Reports are no changes that the only reason Grey Knights are in the book is for a mini Nemisis detachment, and so that Inquisition can take them in a formation.
