@CloverFox I don't think having to reselect a couple of bits of Wargear is too much drama, but honestly, I'm amazed at the effort to get all the references correct...! FWIW, I have been lazy and hardly included any refs in the Eldar cats...

Wow. I don't think I've ever worked anywhere with security requirements lax enough to allow less than 8 digit passwords :'(
Gisle Jaran Granmo
@Szeras
Jul 14 2017 06:29
the second worst offenders IMO are the ones which require one uppercase letter, one number and one special character
in most cases it will be the first letter that is capitalized, and the password will contain "1!" somewhere
M4uler

But these are normal people we're dealing with ;)

teach people to use password phrases. 20 letter passwords don't need special characters (though they should be allowed)

that sounds like a lot of typing .. I know . I'll abbreviate it 'CHBS' new passowordo, and the IT guy says it's literally unbreakable

Hey all; is it a known issue whereby 'Relic' Forge World entry's requirement to have a 'non-relic' of the same slot isn't tracked across 'child forces'?
Justin Dee
@IdleMuse
Jul 14 2017 08:12
I figured it'd be worth checking first since obviously the child force function is pretty new and this feels like a platform bug more than a catalogue one
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jul 14 2017 08:41
They FAQ'd something about that didn't they?

Hey all; is it a known issue whereby 'Relic' Forge World entry's requirement to have a 'non-relic' of the same slot isn't tracked across 'child forces'?

It should work if you select FW as the parent force, as I've written in a wiki page. Unfortunately, it can't work if FW catalog is the child force, as of now.

Unless there's another issue I missed of course
Justin Dee
@IdleMuse
Jul 14 2017 08:58
Awesome, cheers! I had indeed selected FW as the child force, rather than the other way around.
Ah, wiki; I had only looked through the Pinned issues, rather than the wiki

has/does the implementation include the updated wording about using Relics from the Forgeworld FAQ??
ERRATA
Page 4 – Additional Rules, Relic
Change the first paragraph to read:
‘If your army is Battle-forged, no Detachment can
contain more Relic units than it does non-Relic units
of the same Battlefield Role. You can, however, include
a single Relic Lord of War unit in your army even if it
contains no non-Relic Lord of War units (you cannot
include second and subsequent Relic Lord of War units
unless they are taken in a Detachment that contains at
least as many non-Relic Lord of War units).’

Odd isn't it that the Imperium get this restriction on Relics but Chaos don't get the same restriction for Hellforged stuff
although, Imperium get a Stratagem that affects the Relics, Chaos dont
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jul 14 2017 10:01
probably because the imperium are carefully preserving it, whereas chaos are just like "fuck it, lets throw it into the warp, see what happens"

Finished painting my 2 Levianthan dreads last night. I'm not much of a painted tbh and it usually takes me an age to finish stuff but this paint scheme is simple enough for a noob like me to do it I guess.

Wanted em to look like if you touched em you'd come away with oil on your fingers :)
that was also supposed to say "not much of a painter"
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jul 14 2017 10:07
well with the death guard you're lucky if its just a bit of oil :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jul 14 2017 10:08
And they look pretty fantastic to me...!

Will tackle the Doredeo next I reckon
Dererdeo^
Deredeo^ ffs
I blame this macbook for the typos... it's not down to my fat fingers honest
Think that just went up
Wasn't sure what I was expecting but I'm glad to see the stat line isn't silly. More wounds than a normal dread but ws/bs arn't anything special.
Not sure I like seeing this though...

Does anyone else think that dread has a hint of Ork killa kan to it...?
Will Pattison

it looks like it shat in its nappy to me

Bit of conversion on it and it would defo make a good ork can

And yes, that ultra codex thing doesn't look too clever
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 10:16
It's the stance that makes it look orkish to me
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jul 14 2017 10:16
Although, I wonder what other chapters will get...?
It's the open arm/shoulder joint and the fat belly for me
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jul 14 2017 10:18
yeah, i wasnt sure if it was the angle, of if the middle sticks out too much

Waiting for a proper look

Jul 14 2017 10:21
Not sure how I feel about the look of that new death guard tank
M4uler
@M4uler
Jul 14 2017 10:21
Was beyond irritated that my lot went to Warhammerfest on the Saturday and they roll that Fatnought and Primarines out on the Sunday so we totally missed seeing them first hand
James

aww :(

The DG tank looks like a doorstop crossed with an armed slug
Haha
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 10:21
I think they went for a kinda... maggoty look
M4uler
@M4uler
Jul 14 2017 10:28
Needs more stuff on it; rust, canker, actual maggots, a few guts or something...
Looks too clean for a DG-specific unit
James
@skonk

Jul 14 2017 11:31
@skonk Man those dreads look great
M4uler
@M4uler
Jul 14 2017 11:36
Aye, I think they're Leviathan sized which is at least 33-50% taller than the current Dreads
Standard Dreads, that is
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 11:38
Thanks :)
I dunno why but since 8th hit I've had a bug for wasting all my money on forgeworld stuff :(
just considering hitting confirm on an order of 3 x 30k period rhinos, 2 variants of the the 30k period predators and a 30k period whirlwind
for my 40k deathguard
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jul 14 2017 11:43
Yikes! I think I'd #waitforthecodex since you never know what new models they'll bring lut
James

yeh thats what i should do
but instead... I hit confirm
Simon Porter

Jul 14 2017 12:02
Its cos of PayPal
they really have my number; paypal credit, spend £150+ on the purchase and it's interest free for 4 months
number of times I've bought more just to put it over the 150 mark
then cos of FW's extortionate postage costs I added an entire tank just to put it into the £250+ free express shipping bracket
otherwise the shipping would have cost as much as a feckin tank
James

Jul 14 2017 12:40
looks like GW will be streaming a game with the new Primaris Dread in action, in about 20 mins
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jul 14 2017 12:55
Hahaha! Nice gif Gen, but yeah, normally when people want to give me money on credit I think if I can save the money by the time the interest free period ends.... But then I've been burned with "free credit" and more and more of it before so I'm very wary of spending money now...!
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 13:05
I'm just impatient and would rather use credit and not have to wait while I save :)

Yes, it does :)

James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 13:21
So the Ultramarines get Objective Secured on their troops, dreads and bikes
how original...
3 CP strat that lets you convert a Captain into a Chapter Master and gain re-rolled hits.
used before the games starts
Bonuses are per-Detachment and require everything in that detachment to be of the same Chapter; but good that they let you mix detachments from different chapters into the same army.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jul 14 2017 13:23
oh is this from the stream?
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 13:24
yeh
ultramarines chapter tactic was already revealed on the community page and is anything with the chapter tactics rule can fallback and still shoot at a -1
M4uler
@M4uler
Jul 14 2017 13:25
Chapter Masters also refund CPs on a 5+
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 13:25
yeh
M4uler
@M4uler
Jul 14 2017 13:25
Which makes sense given their initial 3CP cost
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 13:25
also the chapter tactic gives +1 LD
and some of the psychic spells cause mortal wounds based on leadership comparisons
M4uler
@M4uler
Jul 14 2017 13:26
Null Zone halves psychic tests, ouch
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 13:26
lol psychic spell that gives a friendly an aura that removes near by enemy invuln shields....
in fairness they seem reasonably restrained considering the standard restrictions of only being able to manifest the same spell once
M4uler
@M4uler
Jul 14 2017 13:27
Oh
Null Zone is already in the Index LOL
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 13:27

James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 13:27
heh
i kinda hope that the SM's lose this game
they wont
but I hope they do
would make me chuckle if the codex based army lost to an index based one
M4uler
@M4uler
Jul 14 2017 13:30
It does happen like that sometimes
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 13:31

ok, best practice question.
Chaos Aspiring Sorcerer has mods to Smite.
Do I change the profile of Smite, quote the rule, or both?
James
@skonk
Jul 14 2017 18:40
@CrusherJoe they just said it on the GW stream
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
