@Owlsbane got a link?
since it's been some time
and that's very concerning considering I have a kitbashed autarch I very much enjoy as "my dude"

well, thanks to GW fuckery I can just use the index entry for the older model
and the eventual mymeara will have the old spectre jet pack autarch

hey I'm the guy who bashed up an autarch with wings on a jet bike with a lance and reaper launcher lol

I have the spare EML from my dark reapers
I was going to use that as a reaper launcher and put it on a shadow spectre body
then find a decent scabbarded sword from either high elf bits or an eldar kit and put it on his belt
bam: banshees, spectres, reapers represented, and a good fit for the aspects represented in my army

If I had a spare scorp I was tempted to use his head but I didn’t
Funny story - I don’t even have any swaks
Looks like it might actually be worth getting some

yeah
looks like all the aspects have a place, but scorpions are still underwhelming
you might get a laugh out of my order today
2 wave serpents and 4 boxes of dire avengers, along with a Made to Order bonesinger
also got to try playing with the leaks we had so far, fire prisms are actually worth the points now

interesting thing:
the bonesinger MTO one said it actually came with a rules insert for 40k!

I hope you ordered the bonesinger separately, otherwise you'll be waiting 40 days for the whole order...
I ordered the bonesinger, the RT Farseer, the DA exarch, Banshee exarch and the Ranger :smile: I was undecided about the Autarch but in the end I didn't like the posing so decided to save my pennies
Also, I'd love a decent leak link so I can get to work on the update

Yep, that's him. Doing exactly what Winters was told not to do.

why the fuck is moot green so effing bright....
I turned my DA rhinos into salamanders!
guess I'll do a second oil filter in a few days... ffs.
and that is AFTER a 50:50 mix with the previous highlight AND applying a slight black filter. jesus.

Only the cards with the singer, I'll just grab a set on Saturday and return the preordered ones when they come in
Really debating ordering a second bonesinger

wow, they just deleted commissars

@dragongame
Oct 22 2017 17:42
How?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 22 2017 17:44
It’s not an auto-pass anymore?
Arne Kreutzmann
@dragongame
Oct 22 2017 17:45
It is a re roll at the cost of an extra guy
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 22 2017 17:45
It’s kill one dude reroll morale not kill one dude pass
Arne Kreutzmann
@dragongame
Oct 22 2017 17:46
And only the first time?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 22 2017 17:46
Which means if you’ve taken heavy enough casualties, it’s bu-bye unit still, not oh yeah, we’re staying put
Arne Kreutzmann
@dragongame
Oct 22 2017 17:47
So the commissar is effectively useless now
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Oct 22 2017 17:48
For protecting conscript blobs yes
This is a good thing
Arne Kreutzmann
@dragongame
Oct 22 2017 17:48
For what else should he be good?
Conscripts are max 30 now, right?
In general i thing it’s okay to tone that combo down, especially with the improvements in the Codex overall
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Oct 22 2017 17:55
Except if you have a commissar warlord with draconian disciplinarian
Then it's the old pass
Arne Kreutzmann
@dragongame
Oct 22 2017 18:00
Not exactly ... fail moral .. kill one guy ... reroll ... fail ... loose D3 ... Auto pass
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 22 2017 18:01
@flakpanda Caliban -> Warpstone -> 1:1 Warpstone:Moot Green. Glazed with Waywatcher, then Satin Varnish, black oil filter over it. Still bright.

Don't forget the other thing Commissars provide: a LD 9 bubble. In a lot of ways that's going to help more units (especially infantry squads) stay on the board
Arne Kreutzmann
@dragongame
Oct 22 2017 18:15
That’s true ...
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 22 2017 18:17
sounds like a reasonable change... its above even veteran SM LD
plus the ability to reroll if you get fucked up by a 6
Owlsbane

@WindstormSCR re hiding Warlocks and Farseers, their powers aren't bubbles centred on them anymore, they're ranged powers that affect a target unit. So you can hide them perfectly fine.

@Owlsbane that is both good news and terrible news at once
I suppose on balance good news
combined with the lower cost they'll be good for handling HQ tax
