i built the wings on a spar so they're magnetized to the chassis - the burst cannons are on magnets that grab the win magnets thought the wing, or just sit on when there's no wing.

you should make a how-to with where to cut and drill, would make a useful article

do Anon bug reporters see comments on their tickets?

Jul 13 2017 09:35
when you submit a report it gives you a link to the github issue
so they'll see it if they check back

I expected so, but just checking.

ok, I'm smacking my head on #777. The validation doesn't error for duplicate melee weapons, so why does it on Pistols?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jul 13 2017 10:13
the pistols constraint is shared, the melee weapons isnt

Gotcha. Was just
Trying to recreate tournament list I heard of. Basically 100 genestealers, 6 es batteries, 60 conscripts and some broodlords
Aparently it won 3 games in 7 ti
7 turns total

tournament list
but yeah, the R&H batteries are identical to the IG ones

@FarseerVeraenthis It's not about the "fun" as it's about finding the imbalances so GW can fix in erratas. A competitivly balanced game is also casually balanced. Imo at least
*as much

@skonk
Jul 13 2017 14:10
Part of what GW did on purpose with 8th was give people more freedom than ever to run what ever lists they like and while I personally don't and probably never will run these silly spammy lists.... I don't think GW should now start imposing restrictions on them. IMO it would be better for event organisers to set the limits themselves to suit their own events.

FFS, didn't realise there was a GW stream on and they're talking about whats in the codexes... and ive missed most of it

"The stream just ended and, if you were waiting for any previews on new units or rules, then it was a wasted hour of your life that you'll never get back. About the only new info they shared was details on what exactly the new Primaris organs are. It was just fluff discussion and patting themselves on their corporate backs for a job well done. "
James
@skonk
Jul 13 2017 14:38
they very briefly mentioned strategems and stuff
sounds like some of them will reproduce similar effects to what you got in 7th with things like squads of vindicators combing fire for an apoc blast

@skonk Well, I suppose you can say the dice have been cast in respect to gws approach for 8th. I just wish they'd gone the wizards/mtg route with super tight rules, and letting people sort out the kitchen table games themselves.
As for comp play, I wouldn't mind detachments limited to patrol/bat/brig
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Jul 13 2017 16:14
imo there should be a rule that no more than 50% of your points can be on a single unit type, would cut down a lot of the spam lists, might hurt some legit fluffy armies like orks though
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jul 13 2017 16:37
Imo that is a dumb rule. Army comp based on percentages or percentage restrictions never make sense.

Hey what did i do wrong?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jul 13 2017 21:36
You're submitting pulls to fix bugreps that have people assigned to them, without even checking if anyone else is working on them
OllPersson
@OllPersson
Jul 13 2017 21:37
sorry i just wanted to help
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jul 13 2017 21:37
I understand and do appreciate it
However, you gotta check in here before you go off and start working on things, especially if people are assigned to the bugreps
OllPersson
@OllPersson

but what about #792 should i have open a issue instead?

no, i was busy trying to stash... that monstrosity... into a branch without loosing changes, i should just be able to merge @OllPersson changes into mine
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jul 13 2017 21:42
Unfortunately how git handles xml if you make a change, but one of us has the file open cause we're making other changes, you'll conflict our merge
Unless you're good at xml (which I'm not lol)
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Jul 13 2017 21:44
sa'll good, no merge conflicts
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jul 13 2017 21:45
@ollpersson I'll merge #792

@OllPersson
Jul 13 2017 21:46
Thanks

Alright I'm merging #793 too @CloverFox
Like I said @ollpersson, I appreciate the help - just please check in here before you start setting PRs

@alphalas hm? What's this about me?
Sorry y'all today has been a crap day
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Jul 13 2017 22:04
hmm, smoke launchers are individual to the units, but is shared wargear (since its shared among many units), but then I cant put a book reference unique to each unit, so, should I just link them all to, say, the rhino's?, or do a ton of work to get them correct?(i'm so far deep in now I don't mind tbh)

However it's not very often you get to explain to a CEO that his super-secure 4-digit password getting cracked was the reason Cry36 got installed on their Exchange server resulting in catastrophic data loss...

Jul 13 2017 22:23
I have (nearly) every unit's ref set up perfectly, but, to do so will break people's lists as it changes some war gear options, some are still linking to the GST, which is bad anyway, but is it worth breaking people's lists to fix? (they would have to re-select hunter killer missiles)

I've also learned to set a special email notification so bug reports get my attention
OTOH while I'm not super-confident in my skills I feel like I'm slowly but surely getting close to approaching minimal competence
