I've been doing my part and when people ask about status of stuff on forums I frequent, give a little mini-guide on how to check branchwork, releases, and the issues list
which boils down to "Do a quick issue search, see if it shows in open or closed. if its for new stuff, check branch commits and then releases"

@skonk nope ... they're likely submitting via the app and are tossing a "problem grenade over the fence" in hopes that they'll hit a valid target that will resolve the issue

slightly more interesting portal of exile and +1 BS base
still 361 pts for T8 with no invuln
while a tesseract ark has 8 more wounds, and a 4++ for only 100pt more
if you could unload multiple warrior squads per turn without spending CP it might be more interesting
I'm still going to use at least 2 of them if I go crons on principle

does the new cloak also make them fly?
Price Van-Saint

so they can't fly and give 5++ to keep up with fast infantry ... but they can fly and repair living metal characters and vehicles

Also, It is a beta codex. It's a playtest file given to early testers. While unlikely there will be many changes, there could be. It'll be ready by 3/31 (The release date, given all the obvious context clues)
Tau we have plans to have out on Saturday afaik - @amis92 would know more on that though. And we do appreciate the appreciations :)

Oh just noticed the Hemlock

Those things are nasty

included for removing reapers, RG devastators, and other unpleasant things
and alaitoc, so already -2 out of the box along with the rangers

Rangers? Check. Shining spears? Check. Dark Reapers? Check. Farseer and warlock? Check. For 1K points that's about as filthy as you can get.

Mar 13 2018 22:49
isn't it?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 22:49
Yep
As I said, I approve. With 1K points it would give me fits
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 22:49
and even if I go second with 8 drops
you can't shoot the important stuff
just rangers, hemlock, shining spears
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 22:50
Yep.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR

so only one unit that is -1 instead of -2

So I went down a rabbit hole on the 'tubes and discovered this:

but then LFR exists

@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 22:51
interesting

Orchestral music...like the kind in movie trailers. It's kinda calm right now (live stream) but it's been dark and moody and epic. Good painting music, I think
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 22:51
its good gaming music too
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 22:51
The track right now feels like something from Harry Potter
WindstormSCR

own most of the TSFH albums
the best two are archangel and invincible
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 22:52
I'm really digging it
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 22:52
EXCELLENT
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 22:52
you'll like that one for an inquisitorial army
#22 on invincible I think
or 26, don't have the tracklist handy

Man...that's cool that you're a fan -- I love how interests tend to overlap :) Happy discoveries like this make my day.

that and Titan Dune are my two favorites out of the entire discog

I pipe HDMI sound out of my computer into the "Wall O Sound" speaker system
WindstormSCR

Mar 13 2018 22:55
I think you'll like titan dune and archangel in general for ecclesiarcy forces
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 22:55
I promise I'll listen to them as soon as this stream ends
Okay back to your list
Let me run through the scenarios
How will you handle Hammer & Anvil? Guard? Daemons, especially Nurgle? How will you handle a mirror match?
Okay had to pause the stream, couldn't resist a song called Archangel
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 22:59
H&A is actually favorable, since it means I have to worry less about controlling my own objectives, and least mobile thing in the army is the rangers who can already advance 11" average.
Archangel is the album
Titan Dune is the track from
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 23:00
Well then Titan Dune is fantastic. You were 100% correct.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 23:01
Nurgle doesn't bother too much either, they're resilient but very slow giving me time to take out the actual stuff that hurts before dealing with most of the other shit
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 23:02
Oooooooh To Glory. Yes. Ordo Hereticus theme music all the way.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 23:02
daemons... well, we play alpha strike chicken, which he probably loses on account of likely going second
because as hard as he hits, tempest launcher and that amount of spears fire hits harder, also his characters are easy to pick out with a hemlock
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 23:03
Yeah....just don't let Bloodletters assault anything important.
I assume you'll be keeping the Farseer near the Reapers?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 23:04
mirror match is the trickiest, but considering the list is designed around facing down -1s and invisible communist gundams it shouldn't be too bad
yeah, that's why he has the shiftshroud
allows him to arrive when they do, in the same spot
so forwarned firebase anywhere I please
brb, oven timer
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 23:05
So what about artillery heavy guard? Especially Cadians with overlapping fields of fire and/or aerial spotter?
Or Smite spam? (not as big an issue right now, but...you can get lucky)
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 23:18
(listening to Archangel now, BTW. Eeees gooooooooooood.)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 23:37
Arty guard will have trouble hitting with so much -2 across the board (and invulns on the spears)
boosted to -3 if they shoot anything NOT spears
smite spam I'll have at least 1 deny, and IIRC all events and this event use the beta smite rules
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 23:37
-3 WTF
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 23:38
-1 HTH/cloaks, -1 alaitoc, -1 LFR strat
so enjoy basilisks/mantis hitting on 5s or worse
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 13 2018 23:38
LOL
That's some filth right there
Welcome to the Filthy Juice Pig Club. :)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 13 2018 23:40
so even reapers can go to -2 in a pinch
