@/all, anyone have a problem with me adding @WindstormSCR as a collaborator so he can close his own tickets? :)

Oh, good Lord not me! .. I'm certainly no contributor, I'm here out of some sense of morbid curiosity ... see how the other half live
But Windstorm yeah ... there's a story in parallel to our saviours ... he came full of hope and dreams of making a fully mobile paradise for the peons, but .. they beat him and tortured him with their demands and finally he succumbed to the darkness... only to be borne up by his brothers with the chant "One of Us!"
I should REALLY get back to work and lay off the lunchtime medicinal brandy

Just curious... how does a SM player select their Warlord? (and subsequent Warlord abilities)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 05 2018 16:12
It hasn't been implemented yet. You can check #1838 to see which catalogues have warlord selection so far.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 16:13
As I predicted, no Slaanesh "faction focus" yet
I wouldn't be surprised if they just skipped it because it's just too sad

Daemons codex review on the GW stream at the mo
looks like they are allowing a lot of crossover with the CSM daemons
sounds like the strats and stuff will work on Mortarion/CSM Princes/Magnus etc
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 05 2018 17:22
yup. that's how keywords work
James
@skonk
Jan 05 2018 17:34
can anyone remember which article it was that said index armies could use the updated psychic stuff from codexes?
specifically i thought something directly said thousand sons could use the updated spells but i cant remember where it said it
James
@skonk
Jan 05 2018 17:41

It specifically said TS could. Not everyone.
WindstormSCR

Jan 05 2018 19:52
@/all thanks, though i haven't done too much to deserve it yet besides some minor fixing on CWE and the CA changes
though @sk_Father_Price_twitter that is a funny thing to write considering I made the decision to turn my SM into CSM a couple days ago
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 20:02
@ilaunchbury did I, though? I mean, is there anything in that whole "focus" that's worth the bits it took to send it to my screen?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 20:08
Also, Amazon Prime grants a free Twitch subscription? Cool.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 05 2018 20:09
When did that happen!?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 20:09
I dunno
It's called "Twitch Prime"
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 05 2018 20:09
A single free sub, or a general one?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 20:09
Like a single free sub you can change every 30 days
Gonna check out that damned review

They can FAQ it out. and i expect they will
after the inevitable screaming and crying from LVO

Reciprocal adding on Twitch completed LOL
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 05 2018 21:35
Well, if anyone besides alphalas might be interested, I'm putting a batch of SM stuff up on miniswap today
VVs, ASM, a few other odds and ends

@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 05 2018 21:52
covered off a couple of bug btw :smile:
looks like @Thairne will be busy with DA bugs
I fixed the Primaris Hellblaster one though... the one he didn't even know about yet :wink:
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 22:01
I love it when bugs get fixed like that
Oh crap I forgot I have bugs open too
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 05 2018 22:05
uhuh
the bugs are like 'Nids combined with Orks
they never sleep, never rest and seem to spring from everywhere
even when you think you've killed them good - they come back
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 22:35

Just once I'd like to see something in a GW FAQ that goes like this:
Q: Really, GW? Deep-striking Mortarion, Magnus, Lord of Skulls, etc.? WTF?
zopha
@zopha
Jan 05 2018 23:47
WD has a hint of "more gold" for next month.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 05 2018 23:47
deep striking brass scorpion?
tbh I wouldn't mind custodes actually getting a dex
zopha
@zopha
Jan 05 2018 23:47
So could be separate release.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 23:47
A: Oh man, we're sorry. Bob got some really decent crack that afternoon and we all hit the pipe a few times. LOL. No, that's some bullshit and we're sorry we didn't sober up before we hit "Send" to the printer. OF COURSE you can't do that. It would be game-breaking and, frankly, fucking retarded.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 05 2018 23:48
I like the 5 models I have, and it would be a fun imperial force to do now that my SM are CSM
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 23:48
Like, just once, I would like for them to openly admit they pulled a complete pooch-screw and fucked up.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 05 2018 23:48
tbh the real question that needs answering is how detachment locus effects interact with summoned units
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 05 2018 23:49
summoned unit arent part of a detachment
that much was covered in an faq somewhere
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 05 2018 23:49
yet the locus is crucial and similar to the 'chapter tactics' of other codexes
so we'll see
if that's the case it'll probably end up being "list and DS what you need the locus on, summon what doesn't care"
the other thing that will be interesting for us is how to handle Heretic Astartes daemon troops vs Chaos Daemons troops
since both will be different datasheets with different keywords
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 23:54
The only thing I can see making this not just be a big ol Get Rekt to everyone that ISN'T playing chaos is if CP are scarce for daemon armies? Maybe?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 05 2018 23:58
brigades aren't easily done, especially monogod
and you'll usually want a mix of basic troops so if you want a full battalion you're stuck taking min 30 bloodletters/horrors/etc
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 05 2018 23:58
It's not like Chaos Soup isn't already the top army
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 05 2018 23:59
and horrors that aren't pinks now suck
or at least have been heavily gimped, so it's not a free pass for them
so I think limited CP WILL be a factor, especially trying to build around using 2CP for a primarch deepstrike
