Thanks Zopha, but I saw it yesterday and made the changes last night. :)

I finally sorted my feelings out
I want all codexes/races/armies to suffer until my girls get new plastic and a "holy shit, they're better than craftworlds" Codex
All Codex whiners please talk to the metal Battle Sister about how bad it feels to not have a Codex or new models

Good for you. It's always better to know how oneself feels.

Glad to help! I'll be here all week!
ba-dump tissss
Also: GW, why did you make Morathi have some weird snake/naga form that comes with the model? For that matter why are the Witch/Dark/Killer-girl Elves now half snake? You almost had with their human (elf?) forms, you really did. Thanks for saving me a pile of money though, I appreciate it!

I have a very simple rule about snakes:
"Dead snake, good snake."
"But Joe, some snakes are good, they eat bu--" NOPE. Dead snake, good snake.
"But Joe red on yella, kill a fella, red on black, ta---" NOPE. Don't get close enough to play 'match the color pattern' on a snake. That's how you end up dead.

Then again I grew up in east Texas, where water moccasins are prevalent and rattlesnakes are too, now live in Austin where rattlesnakes -- especially diamonbacks -- are common.
So you'll excuse me if gettin' all cuddly with a snake isn't on my "to-do" list

@CrusherJoe it could be worse, they could have gotten a codex like the grey knights

@CrusherJoe when did the Sob metals come out? Cos the Eldar vyper and guardian plastics might be plastics but they are flipping OLD...
But yes, I'd love to see plastic nuns with guns, that would be 😎

new 40k game. Mechanicus.

Feb 20 2018 18:08
@FarseerVeraenthis 1998, re-released in 2004
They're 20 year old sculpts

@CrusherJoe and yet in casual play my worst losses WITH my craftworlds have all been inflicted by the local nuns player, even with me playing harder than usual lists. They may not have a codex but that index has got some kick to it
if I'm reading it right, this is Xcom: mechanicus style.
which if they manage to pull it off could be utterly fantastic
tekton
@tekton
Feb 20 2018 20:43
yup!

or it'll be like Sattelite Reign, in either case it'll be a smash hit or a letdown

Feb 20 2018 20:54
@CrusherJoe so it looks like the vyper jetbike was a thing in the 3rd Ed codex, which would put those models about 1999, so although they are plastic they're roughly as old as the SoB scule
Sculpts

Feb 20 2018 20:56
didn't they get a redesign when they did the "new" falcon/serpent/prism set around 5e?
so that the rear weapon matched the ones on the WS, etc
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 20 2018 20:57
@FarseerVeraenthis so that's one model...I'm talking about an entire army's range. :)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 20 2018 20:58
Well the guardians are the same age
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 20 2018 20:58
so is a lot of the aspect stuff
even though it went from metal to resin finecrap
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 20 2018 20:58
Sisters have one viable build these days: All-melta doms in Repressors. Celestine optional. Yeah they can do some work but they're easily shot out of their boxes and a girl on foot is a very dead girl indeed
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 20 2018 20:58
Most of the aspects are "just" plastic versions of very old metal designs...

Feb 20 2018 20:59
i just found a box of guardians I didn't know I had last night...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 20 2018 20:59
plastic aspects? where?
:P
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 20 2018 20:59
Be all that as it may, at least you have plastics :)
(Hint: Celestine doesn't really count)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 20 2018 20:59
Yeah, there is that, even if it is all finecast
Does make converting easier...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 20 2018 21:00
@CrusherJoe given when the SoS/Celestine release was, and the deathwatch release, my bet is that if we see a box or boxes for SoB it'll be DWKT quality and out around august this year, given what we know about GW's design/tooling timelines
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 20 2018 21:01
Well...as I've said before (and even told the local Warhammer store manager): "You could be putting the boxes on the shelves and I still wouldn't believe it."

Feb 20 2018 21:02
Hehehe!
Look what happened to the squat clock... Wonders never cease ;-)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 20 2018 21:03
they got one model, and then they'll wait ten more years
or more
only 9 to go since celestine joe! ;)
(seriously, I hope this year we see updated SoB and inquisition stuff)
the nice thing about 1ksons/death guard, etc is that they've shown GW there is a decent market for updated models
doesn't matter if people have the old, they will generally buy the new hotness if it's good

Dude I'll buy a whole new army of plastic sisters
Despite the fact I have a gaggle of them already
Like, a real gaggle
Not as much as, say, @alphalas
But still quite a few
tekton
@tekton
Feb 20 2018 21:15
I'd be buying a whole army, but it would be for my wife- I was working on Celestine last night and she mentioned that she'd like to play that army...so that may be next
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 20 2018 21:24
I had a group of girls and guys stop by a game I was playing a couple of weeks ago (where I was using Celestine) and the guy pointed at her, "WHAT IS THAT BEAUTIFUL GOTHIC ANGEL?"
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 20 2018 21:33
So yeah, Celestine has a certain appeal
Now imagine an entire plastic army with that level of detail and beauty
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe shudders a little just thinking about it.
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe also realizes he'll go blind painting them...worth it!

@tekton
Feb 20 2018 21:35
after painting 40 skeletons this last weekend, I'd be up for the change of pace

I'm thinking about getting the Undead faction for Shadespire
Granted 7 is nothing compared to 40

So... #2509
Can we update a unit's move value with wargear?
Because I don't see it under Modifier if so

Feb 20 2018 22:50
Well... Does it actually work for the battle leader?? If so, copy that :+1:
