So uh, I did a thing...
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 12:02
Correction; now I did a thing

Oct 03 2017 12:06
i assume you're using index prices?
for IG that is
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 12:07
Yup
So when dex drops prices are probably gunna go down, right?
I’m pretty sure that’s what I’ve heard
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 03 2017 12:12
Yeah, russes are 125 ppm iirc, and I would expect most non battle cannon turrets to drop in cost as well.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 12:17
So in other words I’m going to fit more bullshit into this list lol
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 03 2017 12:18
yeah, you're probably gonna have about 50 extra points to play with
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 12:19
Damn that’s Bueno
I’m also going to do a light overhaul of the cat when the book comes out
Some minor changes I want to make to improve things

which units go in the repressors?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 12:26
All of them
Cannoness and flamedoms in one, meltadoms and flamerets in the other 2 each
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Oct 03 2017 12:38
I was toying with that idea, but restricted myself to 3 and 3 on two squads, so they could all shoot out the repressors 6 fire points, problem your gonna face is as soon as you disembark someone to get all the shots out, if anyone attacks the unit your immidiatly loosing high point targets
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 12:41
I’m not actually planning on ever getting out of the repressor’s unless I absolutely have to
They are my vanguarding anti-Alpha strike squads that also Alpha things
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Oct 03 2017 12:44
only 6 can shoot our of a repressor though, arn't you spending points on weapons your maybe never going to fire?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 12:46
Potentially yes; however I’ve never seen a Repressor die before t2
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Oct 03 2017 12:47
i mean, you have 10 special/heavy weps on the sisters inside but can only shoot 6 from the firepoints, meaning you have 4 special/heavys that can't shoot out the firepoints
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 12:51
That is true
However, repressors are pretty stupid durable, and if someone is focusing on them instead of the valhallan russes that are moving max 6”, my opponent has his priorities in the wrong places
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 03 2017 13:00
why valhallan?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 13:01
Not degrading until 3w left is really good imo
Vosty +6” range is cool, but I like manipulating the wound tracks more
@CloverFox I missed part of the Vanguard rule – I’m gonna go to double Dom squads instead of retdom
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 03 2017 13:08
you dont think cadians or talarn are better?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Oct 03 2017 13:09
DUDE
Cadians
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 13:09
I missed what they do - what are they?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Oct 03 2017 13:09
Re-roll 1s to hit ARMY WIDE
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 03 2017 13:09
cadia - if you dont move, re-roll 1s to hit
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 13:10
Oh damn
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Oct 03 2017 13:10
If you get them Take Aim! they re-roll ALL misses
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 03 2017 13:10
and their order lets you re-roll the number of shots you get
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 13:10
What about the towelheads?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 03 2017 13:10
and talarn ignore the penalty to moving with heavy weapons
and their order lets you move an extra 6" before or after shooting
so cadians are really good if you can afford to sit still, while talarn are ridiculously mobile without sacrificing firepower
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 13:13
....
Damnit now I need to choose again
Cadian is cool, but I want to move some so tallarn is really tempting
But I also just love the oh, you just took 6 wounds off my russ? Ok, still in the first wound track
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 03 2017 13:21
yeah, the valhallan one isnt bad, i just think for pure russes there's better options
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Oct 03 2017 14:44
So does anyone have the guard book?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 03 2017 14:47
dont know about anyone else, but I'm just going on what they revealed on the community site and twitch stream
and from some preview vids like winters
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 03 2017 14:50

Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
