Whelp so much for TSons or Magnus battery nonsense
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 17:52
that seems a lot better than the original detachment they got
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 17:53
Yeah
330 points gets you 3 sisters squads in rhinos - each rhino would have a 27" nullzone with a 12" move - effective 39" no pysker bubble, cool
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 17:54
how do you get 27"?
and we don't know that they can take rhinos yet
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 17:59
It's a pretty safe assumption
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 18:00
they didnt have rhinos on the original dataslate
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:00
The box, comes with sisters Custodes, a rhino, a land raider, and I contemptor
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 18:01
ah i see, i didnt have that context
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:01
Yeah – and I'm pretty sure there are leaks out there that already confirm that the rhino is sisters
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 18:01
do we know that the rhino has the psychic abomination rule?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 18:05
wow, thats pretty nuts
i see where 27" comes from now
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:05
Yup
Bye-bye psychic shenanigans
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 18:08
yeah 360pts to completely invalidate any heavy psyker list seems crazy good
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 19 2017 18:16
hmmmmmmm
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:27
yes @Thairne ?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 19 2017 18:38
that seems like a really good way to fuck over CSM
I like fucking over CSM
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:38
or daemons
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 19 2017 18:39
anything chaos
I hate chaos
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:39
lol
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 19 2017 18:39
you could say I really adopted the imperial anti chaos doctrine
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:40
one of my buddies was planning on running a crazy-dumb battery list - 4(6? i don't remember, just it was an asston of horrors) max pink horror squads, a couple heralds, magnus, and belakor
all that's gone now.
good riddance
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 18:44
6? not even a full incursion. casuals... smh
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:45
it might have been more - i just know it was enough to fill a deployment zone 6" deep
dawn of war deployment zone*
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 18:46
the second smallest deployment zone
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:46
i fit way more in DoW then VS
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 18:47
because VS is the smallest :D
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:47
but i men the eithire deployment zone, absolutely full, base to base, 6" deep of horors
the entire*
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 18:47
so ~400 horrors?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:48
sounds about right
60+ base psykic charges
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 18:49
that'll be fun to keep track of which unit has which power
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 18:50
yeah - they had like a full sheet of paper they filled every game.
but now that's pretty useless.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 19:01
Well, if you use SoS...
And @Thairne, chainsword looks good
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 19:05
but for 360 points why wouldn't you?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 19:06
@Crowbar90 are you losing a lot with Deathwatch?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 19 2017 19:06
thanks ^^
Once the engine gets here I can pretty much complete it... should be tomorrow. I hope.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 19:06
Well, because if you're playing eldar it's not exactly fluffy...
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 19:08
you elfkin have enough anti-psyker anyway
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 19:08
60 Warp charges would be enough to deny almost all eldar psychic powers...
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 19:09
but this will basically kill invis - big nasty psy-powered-up death stars aren't scary without psyker support
yes, but your missing the point.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 19:09
:-P
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 19:09
if this becomes the standard for imperial armies, that means you just won't see list like that period.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 19:09
Time to buy a box then..
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 19:10
because they'll die hard to sisters.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 19 2017 19:10
It's the same mistake they made with flyers honestly.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 19:10
It seems like a good deal money wise, but yes, still a fair amount of money...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 19 2017 19:11
Flyers were extremely hard to deal with due to lack of skyfire.
Now there's so much skyfire, the lists end up in an odd sort of balance. Nobody brings either
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 19:11
@FarseerVeraenthis pm me.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 19:12
(not much skyfire in Deathwatch, apart from the Corvus of course...)
@alphalas you have pm :-)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 21:26
@alphalas , I think #3555 is for you...
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 21:31
@Thairne @Kohato BS bug?
forcing the CoI stuff into CAD because of "In Roster", but it throwing a shitfit because it shouldn't be showing in CAD?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 21:33
that's what I was thinking, but because I've been slack I've not kept up with how those detachments have been implemented...
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 21:40
holy shit retributor gold is great
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 21:41
oh yeah :-) it's the cat's PJ's :-)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 21:42
i'm basecoating my custodes- damn!
blathasar is nice too
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 21:43
uhuh :-) I have Ret gold for my I symbols and details on my deathwatch... for which it is fantastic
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 21:47
so i'm not able to replicate anything but the max0 hq.
scratch that - i didn't actually replicate his list.
i gotta check sisters.
damnit.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 21:52
sad face
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 21:52
removing nq and Assassins did nothing - so it's in sisters.
Inq*
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 22:08
at least you're heading in the right direction :-)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 22:09
i deleted your comment :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 19 2017 22:09
fab, go wild, it was kinda rambling about nothing :-)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 22:15
... ok now i'm confused.
@GenWilhelm @Kohato help?
i can't find why it's throwing shitfits.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 22:17
i've got a fix
i'll do it after this game
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 22:17
:+1: you're the best
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 22:54
hows that for you?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 22:59
So what was the issue?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 23:01
adding a force that isnt castellans reapplies the constrains of min/max 0 in roster
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 19 2017 23:21
So how do you fix that then? -1?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 19 2017 23:22
made it check for at least 1 castellans in roster, instead of force instace of castellans
