Well that was a pretty tame transition from AdMech Index to AdMech Codex... I'm almost a bit disappointed..

Hey @Thairne
Cawl should be forced to have the Psalm trait
Also, SolarAtomizer should have a space :p

Dirk Bachert

Sep 27 2017 15:40 UTC
I'm pretty sure I did that forced psalm.... oo
grafik.png
gave him the options so I could validate on warlord being one in roster
I'll give you the SOLARATOMIZER though. I think a SOLARATOMIZER is better than a solar atomizer ;)

if the sjy indeed is falling, there's none that survived to tell the tale

Ah, Yea I was expecting it to select it for me. Because i'm a lazy user
DO MY SELECTIONS FOR ME OLD MAN!

@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:08 UTC
I could if BS could set defaults by modifiers, which I have requested for YEARS literally! ^^
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:09 UTC
You could just tie the shared entry that is Static Pslam-Code to the warlord trait checkbox too :p
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:10 UTC
there's a shared entry left? I experimented with it and it didnt work too well...
if bs would recognize that a min/max of 1 should autoselect even if its done via a modifier...
I guess I could use a second entry that is hidden and shows when its cawl and hides the other optional one...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:12 UTC
? No I mean, Warlord min0/max 1, then tied to that shared entry is the second shared entry of the warlord trait with min1/max1
That's assuming you have the warlord traits entered as shared entries in the first place of course.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:15 UTC
why would I? They are used at exact one place.. its shared entry warlord (max 1) that has a traits shared entry group below it (with min/max 1) so you have to pick one if you choose a warlord from AdMech, then that one contains the traits, showing approriate to forge world
I then set static psalm code to min 1 to force it upon cawl
but min 1 via modifier does not autoselect
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:16 UTC
Right, i'm saying since it is exactly one character that requires the trait, you hard code it into him instead of using the shared warlord grouping.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:16 UTC
I thought about that, but that makes validating for Warlord a bit tougher
so I opted to use warlord for him too since I can validate for max 1 warlord in roster
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:16 UTC
Ah, yea I didn't think about validating 1 warlord
There's ways around that, but it gets a tad messier.
A dummy "Warlord" shared entry that is max 1 in roster.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:17 UTC
jup, trying it out right now, had an idea
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:17 UTC
Link it to both the hard-coded cawl warlord box, and the shared one.
should validate.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne

the fuck cadia method.

Needs to be coined in the bs repo wiki
"Methods of coding: 1) Fuck Cadia"

I'd rather not go THAT way again... its dirty, DIRTY I TELL YA!
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:20 UTC
Cawl's a dirty man who fully supports the easy way out

fethers can click the warlord trait until the Jonperor finally hears my plea!"

Have you seen his model? He built an arm under his Solar Atomiser simply to fiddle the knobs so he didn't have to reach down.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:21 UTC
walks over and grabbers it
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:21 UTC
The first thing I noticed when I built him, I love it.

im not looking forwards to painting mine
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:23 UTC
well tbh the more realistic explanation (heh) is that his tertiary or something conscience can do the solar atomiser firing while the secondary arc claws shit while the primary calculates the battle
I started with the robes on mine yesterday...
I already feel scared

Standard Mars colors, I approve.
Original Forgeworld is best forgeworld.

I'm a mars man.
I stick to DA colours as good as I can too
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:26 UTC
I also play necrons, and fully subscribe to the theory that the Void Dragon is the Omnisaiah burried under mars.
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Sep 27 2017 17:26 UTC
yeah, think about taking them for adepticon teams tourny tho, will prob play them as stygies then
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:27 UTC
I'll go full artillery mars with screening dragoons first
then I might branch out and play them as stygies subsidiary mars worshippers :D
that void dragon is pretty nifty
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:27 UTC
Mmm, Onagers, Destroyers, and Proto-Men flanked by dragoons.
I love dragoons.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:27 UTC
skip the destroyers
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Sep 27 2017 17:27 UTC
well for teams its a 4 man team that 2 people play at one time. 1k per pseron
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:27 UTC
I need 2 more of them
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:27 UTC
they are terrible after what I hear
dakkastellans is where its at
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:27 UTC
They're expensive.
But they're also troops.
And if you're going full artillary, having a unit or two of heavy grav w/ cognis flamers preventing charges is pretty nice.
Dakkastellans is good. then y ou take the neutron destroyer for the onagers
and whatever they shoot at dies.
especially with a 9" cawl aura
I wonder, is his repair an aura? Like does the trait extend it from 3 to 6"?
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Sep 27 2017 17:29 UTC
that is what im doing. dacha robots, 2 neutron lasers, a knight, cawl. thats what i have so far
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:30 UTC
Turn 1 Shroudpsalm with the strategem to give a knight canticles.
Haha 2+ IK staring you in the face.

Sep 27 2017 17:31 UTC
i find having CP to use is hard with them. 2k games im running only 4 cp :/
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:32 UTC
kastellans are more competetive though
with vanguard as screens
destroyers are just too expensive and squishy
neutronagers icarus with a ratio of 2:1
cawl
dragoons/vanguard as anti assault/deep strike screens
maybe a few arquebus rangers as objective sitters
thats pretty much the mars list
stygies seems to rely on -2 hit for dragoons or smth
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:34 UTC
I love arquebuses
Stygian dragoons will be scary
-2 to hit until they charge your ass with S8 Tesla.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:34 UTC
pretty much that, yes
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 27 2017 17:34 UTC
I have 3 at the moment, i'd like 2 more.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 27 2017 17:35 UTC
I think groups of 4 isr ecommended for not screening purposes
but for wtfpwning vehicles
