@flakpanda no, its the same problem as BA have, they use referenced datasheets, which did change, so according to the July 5th and 22nd Community postings should use points and adjustments from the codex

so just adjust the points then?

its fucking stupid and I can't wait until indexes are dead and gone aside from very specific edge cases
points and any option changes for that specific entry
which I think is just soulreaper limitations

…so the opposite of the SM/non-codex decision, dumb

no, any units from DA, SW, and BA that use "referenced entries" should also have been changed per the same posting

oh

the thing is SW and DA have a huge bunch that aren't referenced, and didn't change at all
but for example the sanguinary novitiate is just a renamed apothecary, so any apothecary changes should be applied from the newest source
its a mess
and hopefully that stuff about 1k sons and the marine triple release is accurate so that all of this bullshit is done with by the end of the year

and its part of why the mobile release is so far behind, because I'm still untangling the mess of which source governs what bits

in addition to having little free time to sit and deal with it in long enough sessions to make sense of it

Well I think we were going with the "specialist Index cats" should maintain only Index info, because using CSM/SM is optional
That and parent/child cats are a thing

I've just been going by the community Q&A as the closest thing to an official line on it since it isn't some obscure facebook post

Tried asking on the 40k FB page about the Rubrics and Plague Marines in the Codex being usable by TS and DG and they replied.... by linking the article about using the new spells :( which doesn't address the problem at all.

The "Party Line" seems to be consistent at least of "use the newest version of X if it has the same name"
be it units, disciplines, etc
dice to match the paintwork and finally found someone selling micro-sol for a price that wasn't crazy
now I just need to actually find enough time to sit down and apply decals >.<
