to get a discussion out of an issue and in here is better so this is what I mentioned:
Is it an idea to mark index options in the lists? I was looking at Space Marines Venerable Dreadnought and only having the Codex made me question the options and needed to look it up why it was so.

@alphalas
We are trying to avoid that in most cases - tags are generally agreed upon to be a bad idea in BS

@StealthKnightSteg
maybe as groups then? now you have Dreadnought Arm Weapons and Dreadnought Heavy Weapons, could add Dreadnought Index Heavy Weapons, might be a bit more work that way. (just thinking aloud)

I’d be more willing to implement the second option; HOWEVER; I’m kinda wary of the constraint nightmare of conditions to make that work wellbeing
Well* damn phone

although we are trying to eliminate tags, Index only options are tagged in the Aeldari Craftworlds file
but then there are only a couple

oh ha, yeah, in that case his whole weapons options lists are tagged INDEX because he has exactly 0 options in the Codex
well, Autarch on foot has none... the other type do have some
but the lists are tagged
