The funny part is GW openly stated on stream with one of the designers that "as if" means the whole action uses all applicable rules/auras/etc
cautious optimism
might be something new for us

If no-one has any objections I'll release when I get to work in about an hour :+1:

@GenWilhelm kind of. Everything should be in, but it's not fool proof yet. Still finding lil' missing abilities and the like.

GW license deal with Wizkids.
Light stuff to get the kids hooked and then they can move on to some life-changing hard plastics.

is it me or are GW slipping roofies into every format possible these days ? total war, FPS shooter, RTS, tactical wargame, battle chess, tabletop, several boardgames, card games and now dice games ... I don't know how I feel seeing so many different variances on it around

But on the other I fear brand dilution

I likes my Grimdark both Grim...and Dark
I love that there's a Slaanesh creeping around
I love the concept of Dark Eldar
I love the Black Mirror Catholicism that is the Ecclesiarchy and the Inquisition

At the current rate of acquisitions ... Slaanesh and Sisters could all be the next line of Disney princesses
just saying ... could happen
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe imagines Sisters of Battle...with singing and dancing...Celestine's version of "Let It Go"...and weeps bitter, bitter tears.

@CrusherJoe, I mentioned I was going to try something with Wolf Guard to make it less "interesting" to do their weapon selection. I've put an example up in https://github.com/BSData/wh40k/tree/Wolf-Guard-rework
It only works for the Wolf Guard unit in that branch; everything else is now horribly broken :)

Okay hang on I'm sync'ing
Well...that's different
Throw some Max=1's in there to clean it up and it might just be great

@GenWilhelm
Dec 20 2017 14:03
well i, for one, think it would be funny to have two storm shields
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 20 2017 14:03
Sure
If they stacked
That totally sounds like a Wulfen thing though
Will Pattison

i just have this mental image of a space viking running around screaming, trying to hit people with dustbin lids
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Dec 20 2017 14:06
RAW they can take 2 storm shields
because they can swap both weapons for one.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 20 2017 14:07
that's brilliant
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Dec 20 2017 14:07
it's crazy but true :)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 20 2017 14:08
a lot of nids stuff can do the same, but i limited them to max 1 for UX since they dont stack in any meaningful way
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Dec 20 2017 14:08
Well you say that ... BRB .. going to check on Dakka for some contrary ruling on how stormshields stack ... maybe that niceguy BCB has some input
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 20 2017 14:08
That's what I would propose
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Dec 20 2017 14:09
@sk_Father_Price_twitter, I feel he would bring some valuable insight.

I realize that's a case of "throwing the baby out with the bathwater" but in this case the bathwater has been irrevocably tainted at the source for so long it's the only way to be sure.

Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Dec 20 2017 14:13
but how do you define "tainted"? There's nothing in the core rules about that...
or do you mean it is AS IF it is "tainted"?
in that case, english grammar impl BLAM
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Dec 20 2017 14:14
@Thairne I think you'll find Sir, that is defined under the Queens English Language, of which I am a professor and alumni at Kings college and thus have the final say in anything Grammar related... and this hereby proves you plebs to be wrong, wrong wrong!
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 20 2017 14:14
We have a long-standing tradition in my core group. If there's a rules disagreement and at any time you use the phrase, "Well...on Dakka they said..." you auto-lose the argument.

I beg your parton Sir Van-Saint, but while the Core rules of 40k are written in Her Majesty's Royal language, it is but a construct to define the rules we abide by while following the process known as "playing the game". Therefore I respect thine knowledge, but ultimately have to discard that argument as unrelated.

Every year in my line of work the month of December has historically been either feast or famine
This is definitely a feast year

ooooh a guessing game
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 20 2017 14:19
Which ultimately is a good thing -- famine years lead into a less than great January
But I'm tired and cranky and don't want to work LOL
