@whiskeyjuvenile we know it's a BS bug because it ONLY happens on windows, not android or iOS.

Well either that or I just want to continue to not open the BS editor for a while
:p
I'm hoping someone asks about Allied IKs again soon
I need excitement in my life.

That's got to be satire right? Right?!

Feb 07 2017 15:05
However, assuming it's not - maybe I can make someone cry today
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 07 2017 15:05
what? A troll? Never! Who would do such an outrageous, obvious thing right after you mentioned it?!
that is unthinkable.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 07 2017 15:05
I think I shall make this troll cry with mention of traitor angels.
Dirk Bachert

THERE ARE NO TRAITOR ANGELS!
NOTHING HAPPENED ON CALIBAN!

I hope my comment helps that poor poor imperial.
Maybe they'll see the light.

Yes. For sure. Dark Angel players are known for not holding grudges for 10000 years.

Hey, at least you're not a Salamanders player.
My Necrons have their leader in a bacta tank

thunder strike gauntlets.
To hurl land raiders at tidewalls.

Then Rowboat's fancy armor will spring a leak.
Nah, double thunderstrike gauntlets are for Papa smurf when rowboat becomes the new emperor

Hopefully they'll give him a decent action pose but he should be good.
They had a dual pistol marine painted up at the weekender as well. http://i.imgur.com/F19CPc2m.jpg

@Thairne oh by the way I put it past all 12 of my local dark angels players every single one of them said hell yeah I'll repeat my dog angels black.
Repaint*

Feb 07 2017 17:48
thats one nicü model!
@alphalas source? Not like you made that up on the spot, I'm sure... just to be safe ;)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 07 2017 17:51
It was put up in a couple of the local FB groups - pretty much everyone was like "yeah, if the fallen were the good guys all along I have no problem repainting my DA black"
I'd link but the groups are closed
On other topics, @Thairne or @Kohato, if I'm looking to build a castellans list with a hellhammer, 2 eradicators, and 4 hell hounds, how do I maximize my bang-for-buck with cawl?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 07 2017 18:23
screenshots will suffice :)
hmmm
cawl is best for his canticles affecting vehicles
so add some min-sized enginseer congregations for repairs and canticle count
if you get 3 in, that is a 5+ invul for them
plus repairs from the enginseers
or IWND with 2 rolls for your vehicles when the invul has passed
Cawl is also pretty tanky, so he can advance and solar atomise anything or bash stuff if you feel the need to when something gets close
short: maximize his canticles and his melee/short range shooting abilites
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 07 2017 18:29
scratch that, 2 enginseers is 4 units with a total canticle count of 5, so 2 is enough
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 07 2017 18:37
Yep :)
2 Engiseer Congregations, each with a unit of 3 servitors
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 07 2017 18:37
one is enough, more are better if you arent strapped for points
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 07 2017 18:38
Eh, 40 more points for 2+ repair is nice
but yea, 1 is enough for cawl's bonus
Keep both in cover right behind your hellhammer
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 07 2017 18:38
And then just stick cawl in the castellans detachment?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 07 2017 18:38
And laugh the day away as you get 2x IWND for a turn from cawl
5++ invuln from cawl for a turn
then 2 repair rolls on a 2+
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 07 2017 18:39
and then IWND with 2 rolls
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 07 2017 18:39
yep.
Or the +2 BS
BS6 on a hellhammer for a turn? Yes please.
actually
hold on
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 07 2017 18:42
There's also a Kelek vindicator in the list too
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 07 2017 18:43
gah nvm, was thinking you could benefit from a FOC detachment
I was wrong
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 07 2017 19:00
So cawl in the castellans detachment, and 2 enginseer congregations? K - let me points this out
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 07 2017 19:05
what is a kelek vindicator?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 07 2017 19:06
Ignores cover
Battle of keylek is a legacy from FW that specifically makes blast weapons ignore cover
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 07 2017 19:07
He means a Vindicator tank with Legacy of Kelek
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 07 2017 19:07
No, I do not like giving people the opportunity to take cover saves
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 07 2017 19:07
your local DE players must love you
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 07 2017 19:08
Hence hellhammer, 2x eradicators, 4x double-flame hell hounds.
Our last local DE player rage-quit when the new book dropped
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 07 2017 19:09
what new book?
the DE one, like a long time ago?
Cause Fracture of Biel Tan could be very good for DE
depending on what the detachments are
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 07 2017 19:11
Yeah the DE book

@alphalas

Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 07 2017 22:14
2500 is the standard game around here since most everyone plays 30k too
We only go smaller for newbs or tournaments
How the hell did I eff up the C:IA hereticus and malleus inq?
And I left out astropath? That doesn't sound right at all

There, I updated Inc and astra telepathica to be concurrent
@whiskeyjuvenile introduced a conflict somehow - I updated before I started so w/e.
