most are 15% now
since GW actually woke up and said "if you abide by the 15% you can do web cart stuff"
most of the ebay storefronts have a steeper discount
but are more annoying

Even there I’m only seeing 15%

Yep, 15 is the norm now. 15 is max that is allowed in GW retailer contracts but they allow online sales now.

I completely forgot I left that issue open and never uploaded my fixes.
well, fix.

Some UK retailers are still doing 20% online.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 30 2018 09:01
Probably because shipping out of the uk in general isn't worth it
nice for those who live there

EU retailers arn't actually allowed to sell outside of the EU - how that will change for the UK once the UK leaves the EU I don't know though.
The EU anticompetitiveness laws actually protected us from GW's bullshit they pulled a few years ago that drove a lot of retailers out of the business outside of the EU

Artel W were sent a C&D so if you want that very similar but alternative Eisenhorn model from them you better order soon. http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/343874-artel-w-were-sent-a-cd-most-of-their-range-gone-soon/
but when i google images of it, it has spikes on his carapace which look much closer to abaddons model
but those spikes arn't in any of the images on the official site, so not sure if it comes with those parts and its putting me off getting one

Those look like they’re just the chaos terminator trophy racks to me

re #2357, what do people think? Should I take the Daemons out of CSM?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 30 2018 12:24
i don’t think so
maybe remove the gods sorting and instead hid unless deamons selection or something?
so add a fish god selection named daemons?

Jan 30 2018 12:27
what was the reasoning for putting them in in the first place?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 30 2018 12:27
they’re in the codex
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 30 2018 12:36
^^
IMO, GW wanted to get new datasheets out early, so they stuffed them into CSM
@alphalas, Gods sorting?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 30 2018 12:45
Legions i meant.
how your legion selector works
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 30 2018 12:51
Given that you can only summon Daemons of the same god, there's nothing wrong with hiding them based on Legion.
James
@skonk
Jan 30 2018 13:13
you could just make the decision to not include units that are only in a book for convenience since they already exist in their own book's cat; saves you having to mess with duplicates and helps prevent people from making bogus lists by mistake
you'l get people posting issues about why they are missing but those people clearly would have been using them wrongly in their detachments and it's good place to educate them :)
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 30 2018 13:31
I am leaning more towards that solution...
James
@skonk
Jan 30 2018 13:36
GW could have formatted the chaos codexes a lot better, to make it clear that the Daemons are their own thing.
Should have been separated, at the back of the book in a section clearly titled to indicate that these are here for summoning convenience and not intended to be placed inside detachments. Fark knows why they mixed them in with the codex troops and such, it's a right mess.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 30 2018 13:39
you mean like they did with the spawn in the daemons codex?
James
@skonk
Jan 30 2018 13:45
yeh
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 30 2018 13:46
that would have been a good solution to the issue, yeah

can this innocent (ahem) bystander please cast a vote on the relics validation thingummy? having come up against imperial soup army with I think I counted 6 relics from CP across three different detachments .. to generate infinite CP on every use (I embellish it a little bit) it'd be good to get a little enforcement of the rules .. I know you are going for a list builder rather than rules hammer .. but it's easy to get worng sometimes
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 30 2018 13:55
6 relics from cp across 3 detachments is totally possible
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 30 2018 13:56
if the relics are from at least 3 different factions, yeah
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 30 2018 13:56
3 detachments means potential for 7 if you’re spending 9cp
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 30 2018 13:57
but yeah, i think we're moving towards more complete relic validation
James
@skonk
Jan 30 2018 13:57
I'd like @Jonskichov to add colour support to the log (and the ability to have validation put custom messages into the log) so non-compulsory stuff can be logged as a nice friendly green bit of info and the errors can be in red
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 30 2018 13:58
the only thing we cant validate is that you actually have access to the stratagems that allow you to take more relics
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 30 2018 14:02
If you want a real challenge come and help me implement Battalion validation in AoS in a non-horrible way.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 30 2018 14:04
is that the one about counting the total cost of a category?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 30 2018 14:15
no, that's Allies which I've worked around.
that's horrible, but less horrible than battalions
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 30 2018 14:18
whats up with battalions?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 30 2018 14:18
you know how they work?
in a rules sense?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 30 2018 14:18
nope. never played AoS
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 30 2018 14:19
ok, there's a specific list of units, which if you include them give special rules.
kind of like formations in 40k?
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Jan 30 2018 14:27
if only we had inherited cats, we could do a seperate army linking the entries in the main cat, then put the list together like imperial/etc soup
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 30 2018 14:28
I'm still hopeful @Jonskichov will have it in 2.02.
Alex Baur

So I've recently acquired a land raider Achilles and I'm thinking about what to field with it in a 2k BT list
Any suggestions?
James
@skonk
Jan 30 2018 14:46
a Fire Raptor Gunship ?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 30 2018 14:52
@acebaur, did you see my request last week to be added to the pool for the 1kSons Codex?
let me know where to send the money.
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Jan 30 2018 15:09
Sorry @Mad-Spy I didn't see it. You can send 1.50 via PayPal friends and family to acebaur@gmail.com
@skonk I have storm Eagle, but no raptor
James
@skonk
Jan 30 2018 15:22

I don't really know much about BT's
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 30 2018 15:27
Storm Eagle isn't bad
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 30 2018 15:36
@acebaur, that's $1.50 right?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 30 2018 15:36
Man had to do a little bug hunt this morning. I think I got everything though
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 30 2018 15:37
did you remember to add a few new bugs, so you have something to fix later? :)
Joe Beddoe
