@Thairne did you make a boo-boo?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 11:59 UTC
nah, I just found the cause of the issue. not a BS bug despite my initial claim
so...
<-- stupid
twice actually :P

Can we upvote this
Stupid phone... I mean the link I'm #3032
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 12:21 UTC
I think this is pretty low priority tbh
and with Jon MIA it wouldn't do much either
plus he already replied and has it "planned"
... for 2.5 years. No amount of upvoting will do something now ;=

Back when he last dropped in he said he was trying to clear out the uservoice, so here's hoping.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 12:26 UTC
thats a load of work ahead of him...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 12:28 UTC
Good. Wouldn't want him to get bored :P
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 12:30 UTC
I'd litterally scream like a little girl if we get to set defaults in SEG via a modifier..
or rather try, choke and cough like the old man I am trying to scream that way
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 06 2017 12:37 UTC
Hahaha! So we can close the issue then...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 12:38 UTC
Yeah, when we have book and page references for every formation.
even though they dont display :+1:
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 06 2017 12:39 UTC
Sad face... Only a billion more to go then...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 12:43 UTC
It's honestly not an issue right now unless somebody writes a stylesheet for it
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 13:48 UTC
also if you don'T know where the formation is from you don't own the original roules. If you don't own the original rules, eff you.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 13:51 UTC
well the argument made in the OP is if you build your force from multiple different supplements it can take a while to look it up across several books
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 13:51 UTC
yep
but that is why there is the printout with the force rules
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 13:51 UTC
so it would be hand for it to say "angels of death pg 101"
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 13:52 UTC
true
but that really is a minor inconvenience
heck if it bothers you that much... printouts are on paper. Assuming you are able to write..
or customize a unit name and write it in there.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 13:53 UTC
thats a pro feature
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 13:53 UTC
so? :P
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 13:53 UTC
but yeah, people just want it all done for them
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 14:27 UTC

"ok battlescribe, write me a fun list"
WTF why doesn't battlescribe work??!

Considering how some people are simply inable to..... points at Allied Detachment doesnt have IK's

Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 14:31 UTC
Wait, can skitarii now take a legal CAD due to FoC?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 14:34 UTC
yes.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 14:35 UTC
but why would you?
foot slogging guys without transport that don't get neither scout nor crusader
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 14:35 UTC
Obsec I guess?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 14:35 UTC
"But I've got object secured!" you cry out as I shoot you from the table.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 14:35 UTC
You can't make use of the re-rolling warlord trait.
since your only HQs are greyfax, cawl, or celestine
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 14:36 UTC
your warlord is dead 1st turn anyway
unless... well yeah.
technically possible, rather useless IRL. That's one of the problems with the Grand Convo - you loose Crusader and Scout for... nothing in return.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 14:36 UTC
not saying its good, just saying it used to be impossible :P
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 14:36 UTC
so, yes - but really why.
If only FoC gave imperium wide troop choices
then we could take an allied IK list!
That has no IKs!
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 14:37 UTC
rofl
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 14:37 UTC
whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat
mind.blown
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 06 2017 14:38 UTC
give an IK trait to some unknown sergeant
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 14:38 UTC
but BEHOLD - if I have Cawl I can equip a IK with a AP2 + 2S sword! AND give him Eternal Warrior! AAAAND a 6+ to him and his ENTIRE unit!!!
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 14:38 UTC
Give the sargent the Master Crafted D chainsword relic.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 14:39 UTC
why go low? Give him the Ravager so he can throw Land Raiders!
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 14:39 UTC
Oh god yes.
I1? Who cares, that sergant just tossed a land raider at you.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 14:40 UTC
hm
wait
if an IK throws a Land Raider at a Kastellan
and the Kastellan saves with a 6
does it throw the Land raider back at the IK?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 14:40 UTC
Haha
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 14:41 UTC
the mental image... I just can't... xD
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 14:41 UTC
It'd be like a tidewall I guess.
Toss a land raider at the tidewall. Cover save rolls a 6
Tidewall reflects it
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 14:41 UTC
with a adam west-like batman "BOING!" popping up
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 14:41 UTC
Instant Deaths the sergeant's unit
I'm never using another knight again
IWND and Re-roll Stomps of 1.
Run and Shoot (not run and Charge) and a 3+ ion shield?
Done
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 20:56 UTC
Oh gw
Why are you bad at QA
Gerantius has no S and no battlefield role lol
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 06 2017 21:29 UTC
so, in answer to my previous question, can we close #3032 ??
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 21:35 UTC
Uservoice issue open for 2 years and some months
It's not being implemented anytime soon
I'm not opposed to closing it
Also simon - about enforcing transports based on squad size?
Don't open that can of worms in SM.
Conditionals like that will only slow it down further
I tried doing that with Sentinels of Terra formations, it's there, but it's ugly and that's only for "If max units"
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 06 2017 21:40 UTC
super :smile: and i agree, but just trying to give some hope, even thougfh i knew it was false :-P
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 21:41 UTC
You know me, bastion of hope that I am, close it and crush his dreams.
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Feb 06 2017 21:42 UTC
omg, that knight. wtf
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 06 2017 21:45 UTC
heheheheh!
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Feb 06 2017 21:48 UTC
i demand a chaos version
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 21:50 UTC
You have one
Also known as Lord of Skulls with legs.
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Feb 06 2017 21:51 UTC
he doesnt have ion shields?
and too many points
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 21:52 UTC
Daemon - Models have a 5+ invulnerable save and cause Fear.
You have a 5+ all around
Same number of points as Gerientus
oh, 25 more
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Feb 06 2017 21:52 UTC
eh
25 more
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 21:52 UTC
Eh, worth it imo
the cannon is much better than a knight's
It has an all around invuln
(also IWND)
It has Rage, Crusader, can charge something other than what it rips to shreds in shooting
AP1
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Feb 06 2017 21:53 UTC
i dont think i can use it. one sec
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 21:53 UTC
Not really sure what a Damon Engine rule does
Oh, AND IT GENERATES BLOOD TITHE
because why not
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Feb 06 2017 21:54 UTC
only way i could take it is a CAD...
hmmm
not really ideal
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 21:54 UTC
You don't run KDK decurion?
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Feb 06 2017 21:55 UTC
no. i play thousand sons
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 21:55 UTC
Oh, well play khorne.
There's your problem
you summon too much
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Feb 06 2017 21:55 UTC
no. and i actually dont summon at all. i dont have the models >.>
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 21:55 UTC
Oh ... well I have no answer to that, so i'll just bow out now
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 06 2017 22:18 UTC
Gerantius is not THAT good
I have the orginial WD here, I got it for exactly that guy only..
The points cost make him pretty prohibitive
125 points over a standard knight... for a +1, run and shoot and reroll stomps
it's okish
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 06 2017 22:23 UTC
That's true enough
