interesting news
I called about the temp out of stock craftworlds stuff separately
all of them I kept getting the answer "oct 13th-15th"
stuff like rangers and similar
that's about when CWE is supposed to drop
might be vain hopes, but possibly some craftworld infantry plastics?

@cartag, DG don't get Bike or JP Sorcs. They never had Bikes, and JP got taken away in the Codex. I feel there's precedent in that they gave TS access to the expanded Dark Hereticus powers. I can't imagine they'll have a single unit using the "wrong" power set.
If people feel that strongly, I'll change it back until the FAQ comes out.

Just wanted to check with you guys, will we still keep Questor Imperialis as a separate catalogue once codex Mech drops? I just noticed @Thairne is listed as a mantainer for Questor Imperialis and Adeptus Titanicus... I'd like to be the mantainer of them since I made the files if you don't mind!

Hm.
You can have the files if you want... I'm not sure about splitting the Knights tho. Give me 5 minutes..
I think we gotta see how they turn out in the AdMech Dex. If they're in the dex, they should be in the file. So that's a split. It kinda sucks since after all I've read they basically don't change at all and maybe get affected by canticles, so there would be some overhead... but I think "in the dex -> in the file" is less confusing over the long run.

@Thairne on the primaris issue - iirc GW said to use the rules packed in the boxes for them in that PDF they put out. If those say they can do 5 to 10, it needs to be implemented in DA
More correctly, you need to implement those squad sizes

Yeah, that's what I thought. However they are probably going to have their own "QUESTOR IMPERIALIS" faction keyword, and since they won't probably change a lot maybe it would be better to just edit the already existing file. Honestly I'm not that sure about it myself.

They do have their own faction keyword, and are only affected by canticles when using a specific stratagem. Look at Winters SEO's 'salty review' for more info.

Is this guy reading the same codex I've seen reviewed elsewhere?
Like...for reals playa
AdMech tears taste like candy. You get electo-priests and Killer Klown Kastelan Robots. Shut up.

@CrusherJoe Winters is normally a pretty decent chap, I think it's just his expectations were a bit too high after all those Primaris and Death Guard goodies the last couple of months.

@Crowbar90 @Thairne I believe we do not do "cat per book" anymore - rather "cat per Faction" - which of course also isn't very strict (Astra Militarum I'm looking at you). So I think unless knights get some admech top-faction keyword, keep it separate as is.
Also because we already have a cat for them. Removing/deprecating cats still doesn't work well for end-users.

The knights in the AdMech book are suppose to Questor Mechanicus instead of imperial. Key word (forgeworld) instead of (household).
So admch units can effect them
tekton
@tekton
Sep 18 2017 18:06
@flakpanda they don't have forgeworld, they still have household and QM
there's a stratagem to extend canticles iirc, and something about "Knight of the Cog" was mentioned on the pre-order page

<Forge World> Knights would be really too strong I think. I'm going to watch the video later anyway, I'm pretty interested.

Soo... leeave them in Questor Imperialis and give them a Checkbox "Mechanicus Knight" which bestows the "Knight of the Cog" ability?
