@/all just saw this question on Reddit: will we keep 7th Ed data around one 8th is released?

Apr 23 2017 13:56
In the same way that we keep 6th ed data around

As much as it pains me to say this, probably not

We'll archive our last update, then post it on the repo and then move onto 8th
I'm 100% expecting Azyr to incorperate 8th ed 40k.
So, take that for what you will for the future usage of BS.

I'm 100% expecting a separate version of Azyr just for 40k
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2017 13:57
Yea, that is what I suppose I meant.
Not azyr, but the same thing for 40k

So..... Ryza?

Probably

that can't be coincidental
Ryza is a forge world for the Imperium

I mean, if the structure of this doesn't change much, I can see us just moving forward. But if it is drastically different, a ground up approach would be better.

All exsiting Codexes are invalid.
I imagine that indicates a pretty big change.
But hey, @cartag - now CSM Will be on the same page as everyone else for having an updated codex

@cartag
Apr 23 2017 14:04
Or it could be as simple as "Things have movement stats now, so any dataslate without a movement stat are invalid"
I'm cautiously optimistic for how CSM will be handled
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2017 14:05
Well invalid codex also means the end of decurions.

I'd be rather happy if we have batallion style formations.
cartag
@cartag
Apr 23 2017 14:05
same here
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2017 14:06
With super batallions that can't ever be used in matched play
Because lolpoints.
cartag
@cartag
Apr 23 2017 14:06
with a more AoS style FOC that changes based on point limit
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2017 14:06
Agreed, that'd be great
cartag
@cartag
Apr 23 2017 14:07
the AoS super battalions are hella big, there's no way those are being squeezed in easily
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2017 14:07
Sylvaneth is the only one that can be
cartag
@cartag
Apr 23 2017 14:08
One blades of Khorne one can be, but it's really limited
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2017 14:08
Yea, they did a good job of keeping those for narrative games after sylvaneth
Sylvaneth is rather powerful because of it.
So many artefacts.
cartag
@cartag
Apr 23 2017 14:09
I think you can fit one of the Khorne ones in... If you do Murderhost at bare minimum it's 400 pts, so you could do the Bloodlords for 1660 total
would not be a good way to do it though
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2017 14:10
no, I don't think that would be :(
There's some pretty effective combos in that book though
There's a whole lot of I'm gonna fuck you up in the hero phase stuff
cartag
@cartag
Apr 23 2017 14:10
Oh hell yes there are... Horde army FTW
blob
and whole lot of "I'm gonna move twice"
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2017 14:11
Oh yea, it's a deceptively fast army
Only one faster that i've seen is cavalry free people
cartag
@cartag
Apr 23 2017 14:11
and that's just the daemon side of things... on Bloodbound side they turn Bloodreavers into blenders
plus we get the most awesomely named Battalion in the game: Gore Pilgrims

Portal of Skulls by default gives +1 A for all friendly KHORNE units w/i 18". That could bump it to 36"
Also no battleshock tests for KHORNE units
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2017 14:21
YEa, no battleshock is pretty nice
And that portal at 36" kills.
it's a huge re-roll casts range t

Yup
Set him in an Overlord Bastion and TOTEM range is doubled too :D
