nvm, read the weapon text
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 11 2018 00:06
What did I do now?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 2018 00:06
it restricts you to fire only 1 per turn in the weapon text, not on the unit
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 11 2018 00:06
?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 2018 00:07
and the FW manticore has no such restriction.... I see
that is dumb
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 11 2018 00:07
Yes lol
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 2018 00:07
also your package is away, I shot you the track no.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 11 2018 00:08
But as joe pointed out, the FW manti isn’t quite as good

@skonk I’m in the same boat- trying to get the Citadel that came out today done before games in a couple hours...
James
@skonk
Feb 11 2018 01:03
ooh thats cutting it tight :)
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 01:05
It’s going to be “close enough” for the practice games tonight at this point
Friend hosts a local thing on Wednesday’s I do most of the terrain for- so it needs to be polished done by then
James
@skonk
Feb 11 2018 01:06
ah

@skonk
Feb 11 2018 01:09
thats flippin huge

We are working on getting it in a 40k narrative game soon too
And it has a ton of recesses- so it takes forever :p
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 2018 01:12
@tekton didn't that thing originally show up during WHFB storm of magic?
or is it all new?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 11 2018 01:12
nope it’s the old witchfae tor
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 01:13
Yup it’s the old model with a couple super slight changes but a slightly better cast this time around (only slightly- the tower still doesn’t line up correctly)
Only had money for one or the other as a kid, 40k won out
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 05:09
So we had our games, the GK+Custodes army was way better than it should be...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 2018 05:13
my favorite combo so far is custodes with a terminator librarian with null zone along for the ride
castellan axes on things with no invuln is not a pretty sight
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 05:21
trio of custodes captain bikes in SupCom, 2xBattalion of GK - should not have worked too well, but those shield captain on bikes live for-ev-errrrrrr
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 11 2018 05:38
Agreed
I just got my Banana Biker Boyz ready to prime
The new paint that I ordered for them should be here Wednesday so I gotta the the ol' Vallejo Surface Primer sprayed on them before that
I proxied them with a guard list and they are pure filth
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 05:41
I undercoated mine with Vallejo Metal Copper, then Metal Gold, and it works out really well
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 11 2018 05:46
Yeah I'm going to use Vallejo Metal Color Gold
Then some other things for highlights
Probably some Rub and Buff golds and silvers
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 05:50
nice

In other news the warden kit is actually a very pleasant build
the big cape can be kept as a separate part for paint
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 07:20
Which warden?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 2018 07:24
Custodes wardens, the new stuff
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 07:25
Oh, ha, I misread that- that's awesome; I liked that on the Allarus kit, too

Doesn't look too hardcore to me, can't read his special rules though...
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 12:34
A 100pt Psyker with an “interesting” summon could be...something? His melee weapon giving +1 to hit is kind of cool
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 11 2018 18:23
Well 125 if you want to summon the 'host
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 11 2018 18:28
cast 2 deny 2
he’ll actually rival greyfax
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 11 2018 18:31
Oh yeah, he's ordo Xenos, perfect for my Deathwatch :+1:
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 11 2018 18:31
Eh
Greyfax is better at Deny
Has a better armor save
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 18:31
He might go in my supcom detachment with Greyfax and Rex to help my non psyker imperial armies
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 11 2018 18:32
Oh shit you have Rex too? Nice.
Rex is Malleus right?
That gives you a Triumvirate of the Inquisition LOL
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 18:33
Yup!

I'd like to invite @/all to take a peek at the future and possibly discuss it: https://gitter.im/WarHub/wham

i’ll work on putting Thorne into the files shortly
WindstormSCR

Feb 11 2018 19:08
Would have been fun to get the retinue as well
but i think necromunda is where i'll be sourcing my acolytes from
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 11 2018 19:35
C’mon, nayl in 40k wouldn’t be fair lol
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 2018 21:42
I don't expect "movie retainers" but it would have been a nice touch
tbh I just want power/carapace for acolytes back
we get hotshots, why not the carapace to go with it at least?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 11 2018 22:34
Because despite being the most feared and omnipresent organization in the 40K universe, the Inquisition can't have nice things.
tekton
@tekton
Feb 11 2018 23:22
Well they themselves are kind of heretics at this point, so yeah
