yeah, was just wondering
not much new here, other than being able to move out of combat

that means tarpitting is not a thing anymore.
good -maybe we'll see less guard blobs now.
i wonder if hit and run still exists then - and alows you to leave and then move/shoot/charge.

Or guard blobs will just surround a unit and keep them from moving anywhere
I know my letters do that in AoS
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2017 14:20
tha would have to be a massive blob to tie down jump troops
i'm excited for tomorrow - psykic!

i like that if an expendable gets charged you no longer hope they all die/run away so you can shoot the enemy unit next turn

Not for monsters or small assault units that are land based

Apr 27 2017 14:24
that is fair - i'm just king jump pack over here lol
comes with being IX Legion.

That makes combat soud awful
your assault unit will get shot to pieces...
well we gotta wait and see.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2017 14:27
depends how easy it is to get to combat
you can charge out of transports now, so you dont have to suffer a turn of shooting beforehand
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 27 2017 14:28
then you kill some, they fall back and you stand there like the fish in the barrel - again
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2017 14:29
so you're in the same position but you already fought a round of combat
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 27 2017 14:30
depending on the combat, you had several turns of not being shot
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Apr 27 2017 14:30
i mean, reposition could be a good thing
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 27 2017 14:30
or could wipe his unit in his turn#
now he moves, shoots and assaults before you in any case if he wants to

can you use a link that is hidden as a reference for something?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2017 14:56
a link that is hidden?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2017 14:57
in other words, there's a tag linked to Lords of War, that is hidden unless AoDC. can i use that tag outside of AoDC to restrict LoWs?
AoDC = armies of dark compliance, basically war con for 30k
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2017 14:58
if the LoW tag is hidden then they cant have any selections of it
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2017 15:01
i have a specific HQ unit that restricts you from taking any LoWs - i was hoping to use the tag we made for AoDC to work for that.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2017 15:03
cant think of an elegant way to validate that without putting a modifier on each LoW
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2017 15:04
Unfortunately I think that's how I'm going to have to do it
zopha
@zopha
Apr 27 2017 15:17
Can you just hide the whole LoW entry? :)
if it's hidden it should throw up validation errors if something is selected in it.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2017 15:19
that requires validation on the force, which is most likely in the gst, which has no knowledge of what is in each catalogue
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2017 15:19
^was about to say that.
not as succinctly though lol
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2017 15:20
you could do it by editing the xml, but that would render the data editor useless across all catalogues
zopha
@zopha
Apr 27 2017 15:27
What about creating a seperate entry in the GST, make the hidden=true condition trigger if that entry is present in the force (and all child selections) and add that entry to the unit in question? If that could work it wouldn't be practical in the long run, units would get unwieldly with tags-that-aren't-tags.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2017 15:30
yeah, that could work
if we could set entries to be non-printing we could use this kind of stuff all over the place without it clogging everything up
zopha
@zopha
Apr 27 2017 15:36
Ahhh, non-printing. That would great.
