Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 00:02

Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 00:04

James
@skonk
Aug 07 2017 00:04

Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 00:05

but doesn't have the titan killer gun
am I missing something, the FW cat doesn't have the T-hawk?
James
@skonk
Aug 07 2017 00:08
it was there for me
you have to have one of the detachments that allows super heavies
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 00:09
oh right, duh lol
James

Aug 07 2017 00:17
and then when they're all nice and up close, disembark em and drop the reivers down in range of the auras
shoot the stuff
charge it all in
rerolled hits of 1, rerolled misses in combat, rerolled wounds of 1 etc
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 00:18

be funny tho :)
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 00:19
yeah lol
James
@skonk
Aug 07 2017 00:19
well anyway, i think i'll model em with the bolters and proxy em as flamers if i want to try em
if the flamers end up being good i'll buy a second pack
im not sold on the unit at all tbh tho

as much as I love to run my own DIY charactrers, Helbrecht is amazing
James
@skonk
Aug 07 2017 00:21
:)
I'm actually a chaos player and I'm quite partial to abaddon
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 00:23
I've never been big of taking special characters except the EC, but this edition has changed me on that. Helbrecht is an amazing buff and a solid melee character too
James
@skonk
Aug 07 2017 00:23
yeh
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 00:23
Grimaldus is nearly as good
James
@skonk
Aug 07 2017 00:23
i always liked using unique chars, even in 7th
abaddon is a monster tho
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 00:24
I'm glad the EC stayed scary as hell to characters
James
@skonk
Aug 07 2017 00:24
6+d6 attacks, hitting on 2's rerolling, 6's generating additional attacks vs imperium
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 00:24
Yeah, he's like grimaldus on steroids
James
@skonk
Aug 07 2017 00:25
6 of the attacks being at str 8, the d6 at st 6 but all with -3 ap and d3 damage
the CSM book also adds +2 CP if u use him :)
and we get an.. almost lieutenant type unit in the new book
rerolled all wounds in melee
so i'll be trying to keep one of those near him
right, best me off to bed
or best BE off even

Should I gather up his "blessing", package it in neat small water tight packages and send it to you for your enjoyment the next time? :P

Hey @/all I got tired of waiting for Jon to display keywords. I've added a profile type into GST to use for them.
EG: on Imotekh,

@CrusherJoe
Aug 07 2017 11:35
Will that siphon in the already-existing categories?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

Hah
You're funny
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 07 2017 11:36
I'm usually worth a chuckle or two. :)
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Aug 07 2017 11:36
That would be a useful feature, but no, it's a basic ability text box that we'd have to fill out
I tried with various formats of Shared rules
but it clashes pretty bad with actual rules.
So an ability profile keeps it separate enough.
Use them as you see fit, just figured I'd let everyone know :)
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Aug 07 2017 11:42
I'd rather hack my hand off than type all that shit in there again :P
disclaimer: not really.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Aug 07 2017 11:45
Yea, I figured as much
That's why I just left it for everyone to do if they want
or you can bug Jon to fix his program
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Aug 07 2017 11:59
I might consider that.
However, I just dont care about keywords on the printout enough :P
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 07 2017 12:06
Yeah uhhhh... as someone who just got done doing a FW Index - fuck that shot
Shit*
Damn phone - stop trying to make me not swear
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Aug 07 2017 12:07
Both fair points. I wanted the info displayed, as that was half of the point of keyword support, and Jon is all but ignoring that, so I fixed it.
And necrons is a small codex so it was easy to implement.
Jon Kissinger

Aug 07 2017 12:29
....there is an anime about SPACE TRAINS; and the main train is a UP 4000 class - must watch
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Aug 07 2017 12:30
UP 4000 HERESY TRAIN?!
train
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 07 2017 12:33
Yes
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Aug 07 2017 12:33
why train?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 07 2017 12:33
4000 class, also known as the big boy
Because biggest train ever made
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Aug 07 2017 12:34
train anime boring
thairne anime way better
King Heresy class
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 07 2017 12:34
And I never gave up my childhood love of stupidly big steam engines
Lol
Yes that would probably be more interesting
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Aug 07 2017 12:34
old, big and steam powered
sounds familiar
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 07 2017 12:37
Reason I love the big boy - it could climb mountains, going 40mph, pulling almost 9000 short ton
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Aug 07 2017 12:38
yeah I knew it.. that sounded really familiar!
Reminds me of YOUR MOM!
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 07 2017 12:39
My mom's dead ;)

I'll kick myself out. Don't bother.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 07 2017 12:40
Naw you're fine lol
At my former place of work I had a coworker who's standard thing was your mom jokes. So I just started saying my mom's dead every time he cracked a your mom joke :p
Kinda just became a standard reaction
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Aug 07 2017 12:42
dude
that's downright evil :clap:
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 07 2017 12:43

His reaction was even more dramatic then yours the first time
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Aug 07 2017 12:44
well I kinda held back :P
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 07 2017 12:45
Lol fair
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Aug 07 2017 12:47
rushing to apologize for things you had no way of knowing is kind of.. senseless.

@alphalas ... Biggest train?
Gustav begs to differ.
As long as your definition of Train is loose and includes artillery pieces.

CSM cult marines being troops in their own legion or not in the new CSM book is still clear as mud
the dex data sheets replace the index ones... but the zerkers, plagues, noise and tsons being troops in their own legions isn't part of the data sheets, its in the intro pages of each legion. So not sure if that text in the index would still be valid when using the CSM book.
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 23:13
My 32mm adapters came in the mail today
Very pleased with them, I'll be starting to outfit marines tonight
James
@skonk
Aug 07 2017 23:15
seems the daemon troops in the CSM book arn't in their to be used in army lists :( nothing in there to allow them to be in the same detachments without breaking the legion traits. Seems it just for convenience if you want to summon them.
what do the adaptors do?
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 07 2017 23:25
Change the base to the height and size of the new GW 32mm bases
James
@skonk
Aug 07 2017 23:36
ah
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 07 2017 23:46
So, I still have to finish the base (obviously) but I'm pretty happy with the last couple of day's work

i got as far as adding the gold to his chest, 1 shoulder and the top of his backpack/halo and at that point my brain died.
