As much as I'd love to say yes, do it, RAW says no

@Thairne, version number for Cult Mech hasn't been updated for a few commits. Probably what's causing #3576 to be reported over and over.

yeah, but I dont expect many users to know the distinction between purging their data and simply updating it

I added Bulwark of Purity to GK, should I leave the "Restrictions" wargear item or is it unnecessary? I decided to put it because there is a similar one in a Blood Angels formation, but it looks a bit redundant to me

If the restrictions are enforced by the entries then no it isn't strictly necessary to have the wargear profile explaining it.

Ok, for the "no dedicated transports" restriction I created another copy of the unit inside the formation, without the link to Dedicated Transports so they don't appear
As for the other restriction the only available Librarian already satisfies it... I'll remove the wargear profile then!

Okay, you need to be careful when creating duplicate entries, it can lead to a lot of bloat in the catalogue. It's better style to link to the original unit then add a conditional modifier to the unit to enforce the restrictions.

Mar 22 2017 14:16
Oh ok, didn't think of that. I'll read about how to do it then fix it then :)

No worries, probably the best example of good style is the space marines catalogue.

I'll draw some inspiration :)

Mar 22 2017 14:29
oh, now I get how it works! For some reason I wanted to set the restriction inside the Formation entry and I didn't think of setting them inside the original unit...

sounds like you got it :+1:
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
Mar 22 2017 14:32
It's good to see there is a better way to do it than introducing a bunch of duplicates :)
thank you for your help
