Battleforged army of 4+/4+++ with 3++/4+++ wraiths?
Yea it was mean.
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:00
hahah
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 15 2018 00:01
Then death guard took cron durability. And anything but gun drones and commanders was shite for tau. Now things are balancing out - i'm rather happy with the tau leaks too
I run both
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:02
yeah at firest i was a little gutted by the stuff i was seeing but i have started to see some nice things i can bring
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 15 2018 00:02
I look forward to +6" range on 2 stormsurge's with pulse blastcannons.
WindstormSCR

Mar 15 2018 00:04
The ghostkeel and stealthsuits are looking like the big winners
Ghostkeels make me glad I have two hemlocks
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:04
yeah. i LOVE steathsuits so this is good news for me! :P
ive got a dal'eth vanguard detatchment in mind. at least 1 ghostkeel and some stealthsuits in support
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 15 2018 00:05
I never got the hang of them
but I have 12.
I think i'll be running Bork'An but another paint job.
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:07
yeah, thats the real kicker.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 15 2018 00:08
I don't much care for farsight's rules - but damn I love that sept overall.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 00:08
My friend who runs kel'shan (for O'Ralai) was pretty happy they didn't get co-opted from forgeworld
so until FW gives them rules he can pick and choose
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:08
hahah never played farsight. figured i would rather be squishy food for cc units than crunchy food for cc units
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 15 2018 00:10
I just love the color and farsight as a model. And as I love suits far more than etherials, farsight fit .. but their bonuses are lackluster ... re-roll wound of 1 within 6"... ehhh
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:10
yeah its pretty weak
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 00:13
the strat is strong
+1 bs off a manta strike
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 15 2018 00:14
Yea, that's not bad at all
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 00:14
problem is you can only affect one unit
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 15 2018 00:16
I imagine it's really meant for a large unit of crisis with plasma or something
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:17
i cant see the trust PR being the auto go to it used to be any more
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 15 2018 00:18
Burst cannon has been for me recently
mostly because it's the most dice .. and I refuse to be the guy running 4 commanders and drones.
Also, I only have 2 commanders and most of my drones are marker >_<
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:24
lol. i run a pretty balanced army on the whole.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 00:24
time for a new coldstar kit?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 15 2018 00:25
Got one o'them.
And super happy I magnetized him.
Because now that's worth it.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 00:25
yep
if you run Dal'yth you could make yourself an O'Rmyr
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:25
yeah ive got 1 Coldstar and i think 1 standard commander
wasnt sure if he got any new toys in the dex
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 15 2018 00:30
Coldstar?
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:30
nah O'Rmyr

Mu Tau hasn't seen the light of day in over a year
my^
will have to dig them out
maybe paint all my tidewall rampart guff to stick on as terrain
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:39
yeah once 8th dropped i stopped playing tau all together
iom hardly the play to win type.. it just became not fun any more
James
@skonk
Mar 15 2018 00:40
tempted to whip it all out now to remind myself what i have

4 KR cases full + a big old box of tanks and then a bucket of tidewall gear
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:40
thats a lot of hulls
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 00:40
that’s what i was running early 8e
but railheads didn’t do enough and it was thoroughly meh
4 fish 4 heads 2 tetras
breachers and carbine FW in the fish
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 00:43
how does it look with weapon profile changes, and rumors that heads got the "fire twice" tretatment
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:43
where did you see that?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 00:43
railheads are just as meh
ion is the way to go now.
sad
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:43
yup
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 00:44
i miss when rail was the best, yuge

MakeRailGreatAgain

DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:44
hahaha
when it was the best gun in the game full stop
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 00:45
YES!
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:45
good times
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 00:45
glorious days
when mechtau was BETTER then suit spam
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:45
oh man
mech tau
dont make me cry
god i miss mech tau
James
@skonk
Mar 15 2018 00:46
ok im doing it... gonna get it all out
im gonna regret this later
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 00:46
also when broadsides had ACTUAL railguns
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:46
hahaha
@skonk im sorry
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 00:47
mechtau was besttau
sighs
i hope it’s at least viable in the codex.
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:47
the true days of the fish of fury.. i hate that they squellched that.. it wasnt even broken
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 00:49
and it made sense with the fluff
Hell, landing gears were awesome too
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:50
yup. it was a nice tactic that was great with the army. giving us that back would be a really nice boost to the tau
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 00:50
stay sill, you’re a tank
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 00:51
tbh mechtau should be viable
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:52
this would work really well with my keel/suits..
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 00:52
mech guard is pretty viable, and while FW are fractionally more expensive they're still in the right price bracket along with transports
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:52
might go longstrike and ionheads for HS
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 00:52
do what I do with mechdar (which is more expensive) and use all the armor as anchors for manta drops/webway
forces people to have nothing but T7+ to shoot at round 1
gets pretty frustrating I'm told
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:53
haha
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 00:53
my usual list is min 2 WS and 2 FP, maybe a hemlock depending on the relative "power" of the list I'm trying to use
then stuff in webway strikes
the "full fuck" 2000 list is 3 WS, 2 FP, wraithlord and 2 wraithseers on the table
with 2 ghostaxe wraithblades in webway strike
tau can probably do the same thing more efficiently
considering WS are 120 and DF are cheaper, and railheads with buffs are probably better than fire prisms
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:56
yeah i can see how that might work
James
@skonk
Mar 15 2018 00:57
ok i regret this already
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 00:57
hahahah

Mar 15 2018 01:04
@WindstormSCR remind me to pick your brain after the dex actually drops
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 01:08
alright, though I don't actually play tau so not sure how helpful it will be
James
@skonk
Mar 15 2018 01:11
yeh... bored of this now
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR

on sunday I need to do a full uncase of my eldar to fix a few things

Mar 15 2018 01:13
mostly bike stabilizers and flight stands
James
@skonk

Mar 15 2018 01:14
every drone i own (and i own a lot) has been magnetised to a flying base
really cba getting all those out
i reckon i have... 8 times as much as this in Chaos stuff
and now bed... will deal with all this lot tomorrow
DarthPingu
@NistrumCain
Mar 15 2018 01:17
lol yeah i agree with that
mech tau army is looking epic
tekton
@tekton
Mar 15 2018 01:46
Dual ghostkeels has been interesting in test games, need more hammerheads though to really try out mechtau
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas

@acebaur you around?
so i guess this is the 8th ed version of the book they sold us in 7th edition about a month before they made it obsolete

Yeah

Mar 15 2018 11:41
lots of shots with D10 on the board ... new dice mechanic ?
but battle length etc. says roll D6 and on 3+ battle continues .. so maybe not a complete change
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Mar 15 2018 11:55
gw sells d10 for wound counters (that are not spin down because gw have no idea when it comes to dies, like putting the image on the 1, who does that...)

Saturday it'll be released for 99%.
R42H
@R42H
Mar 15 2018 16:34
okay
sweet
what is the data coded in (so i can go away and learn it)
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Mar 15 2018 16:35
check out BattleScribe Data Editor, installs together with Roster editor. Format is XML. If you open a catalogue in notepad++ or similar, it'll work.
BTW, anyone happens to have a full leak rules-wise? ;)

my local usually gets their deliveries of preorders on wednesdays
it didnt turn up this week tho
and frustratingly they recently started being closed on thursdays
R42H
@R42H
Mar 15 2018 16:38
same here
James
@skonk
Mar 15 2018 16:38
so when the wed order doesnt show it means waiting till friday
R42H
@R42H

Anyone else got a useless index lying around?
worst 15 bucks ever spent.

That's a sweet dream right there
But if history is any indicator, probably not any time soon
R42H
@R42H
Mar 15 2018 16:42
good
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Mar 15 2018 16:43
@CrusherJoe honestly, I'm against, but if they officially sanction StimInjector from Index as legal, I'll be happy as hell. :D
R42H
@R42H
Mar 15 2018 16:43
I dont use stims all that much tbh
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe murphs and mmmphs, used the good duct tape this time
R42H
@R42H

@R42H comments on the immense usefulness of duct tape
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe nods silently
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 16:46
@amis92 as long as @acebaur is able to get the codex downloaded as soon as it goes live, i could get you that.
but that goes live at midnight GST; so probably not much help to you
R42H
@R42H
Mar 15 2018 16:47
is that a free illicit codex i hear?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 15 2018 16:47
Negative. We don't do "illicit" here.
R42H
@R42H
Mar 15 2018 16:47
Fair play
I am new
Btw, what format is the data created in?
like language
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 16:48
we use the editor to produce the xml in a .cat file
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 15 2018 16:48
it's XML, but we use the battlescribe data editor for 99.9% of the work
R42H
@R42H
Mar 15 2018 16:48
can i get the editor for android (chrome os)
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Mar 15 2018 16:49
That's a no.
R42H
@R42H
Mar 15 2018 16:49
damn
only on windows?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 16:49
some of us can actually code directly in xml, but most of us use the editor
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Mar 15 2018 16:49
However you may try some emulations, I think. It's a java app.

does anyone know if there is a way to run java apps(like the editor) on android. Like an environment or emulator something?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 15 2018 17:03
All Android apps are java apps
But they're pre-um...compiled, for lack of the correct term
R42H

Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 15 2018 17:06
But when you upgrade Android (or install a new ROM) you get that "Android is installing apps" message. It does the optimization process for your individual device so JIT compiles are more efficient at runtime
R42H
@R42H

that make sence

they havn’t cracked the bootloader yet?
ah
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 15 2018 17:42
It's almost impossible to crack a bootloader
Note I said "almost"
T-Mobile used to be really good about releasing phones with bootloaders you could unlock with the Android dev tools -- it was one command
But sadly those days are long, long gone

The fact they're supposedly aiming to support shadespire-style organized play with new killteams makes me hopeful that it will have a nice ruleset
if its Necro/SW:A v2 without many tweaks it'll go down like a lead balloon
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 15 2018 20:10
T-Mobile customer service told me how to jailbreak and unlock my 3GS back before they officially got iPhones lol
Like no lie, the dude on the phone literally told me “all right go into Cydia, and download this app from Cydia. Run it, and enter these numbers when it in the pop up.”
Cydia is the jailbreak app lol
This is back when it was a legal grey area to jailbreak phones

@WindstormSCR I don't think that list is too cheesy, it is pretty nasty but might struggle with heavy armour... although, at 1k pts there's not likely to be a lot of that
also, how has you farseer got three powers...??
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 20:31
I goofed, should just be guide/fortune
and heavy armor really isn't a problem, because of the hemlocks and spears (you wouldn't think they're that effective)
also unless its flying heavy armor, if its a tank saturation list just tie it up with the banshees and it won't be shooting anyway
I like to make it a joke term of "ability kill"
if you can't kill them outright, just find a way to stop them from affecting anything meaningful
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 20:35
actually, that's exactly what I did in one of my last games against "an army of tanks"
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 20:35
then just control objectives and whittle down with hemlock and reapers
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 20:36
fortunately the deployment was small, they were grouped, I managed to charge three of his tanks with my banshees, my webway strike wraithguard wiped out one and then my fire prism whacked another to almost 0 wounds
sounds like a good plan
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 20:37
at least I finally have rangers
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 20:37
I :heart: rangers
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 15 2018 20:37
They're SO good
I don't take an Eldar list seriously unless it has rangers
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 20:38
mine are extremely good pincushions
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 20:38
DA have thier place and uses
same with guardians
I just wanted rangers in order to have dudes I didn't feel like I had to WWS or give a transport to

@CrusherJoe
Mar 15 2018 20:39
I didn't say all it had to have were DA
Just that if it didn't include rangers there's a chance the player has no idea what he's doing
Of course there's also a change that he really does, too. :)

Mar 15 2018 20:41
several guardian boxes are also on my eventual list, because I want to have option diversity
also because I want the option for narrative to go with my wraithstone defence lines I got from micro-art

My friend Chris that plays Eldar almost exclusively has gotten a LOT of milage out of his Guardians lately
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 20:43
I find that I just have to get used to the way they need to be handled, since I'm used to wanting to mechanize/protect my infantry more
lately I've been running one squad with a conceal warlock
I think I might bump the squad to 20 now that I've felt iyanden morale immunity in action
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 20:51
yeah, I'm planning on running a big squad of guardians in my Iyanden army
when I get my wraithguard built and painted
and... and... and...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 20:52
oh
I'm building my second wraithseer here in about a week or less
I'll take pics this time
showing cut lines

I'm working on getting my Deathwatch army to a sensible state so that it looks good on the shelf
then I can work on my Eldar
and my Dark Angels

Mar 15 2018 20:54
I think I can get my eldar mostly done. basecoating is the hard part, and that's all done, just need to push myself and finish all the infantry
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 20:54
yeah, I have yet to sort out my airbrush to start doing basecoating using that

what color scheme are your elves again?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis

Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 20:58
with a squad of 14 odd luminous yellow guardians
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 20:59
deathwatch, ravenwing/old DA, ulthwe
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 20:59
and a couple of iyanden units
and yes and yes :smile:
what I'm thinking is I might run Gathering Storm fluffy Ynnari
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 21:00
RIP locked to a ynnari warlord now
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 21:00
since I have Ulthwe with Eldar, the triumvirate (because the models are nice), some Iyanden, and Range "just because"
then eventually in my dreams I think I will pick up a wych cult
so I can run any of several smaller armies, or mash them all into ynnari soup
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 21:02
I might start a DE force and style them towards corsairs
depends on how the dex works
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 21:03
yeah, I'm thinking a "gangs of commorah" boxed set, some wyches and a couple of venoms and you're away
also, lillyith hesperax
because - Ynnari :wink:
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 21:07
Hmm
I have some skyreavers and coud dancers already converted
Pity they don't have an HQ
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 21:09
yeah, that was a real balls up by GW
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 21:09
that was FW rushing
also they don't technically make a prince model so I could see why it happened
I might just run a patrol of them and use an "autarch"
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 15 2018 21:13
yeah, it would be nice to see FW produce some other infantry models
the big tanks and so on are nice, but a leader for one of their niche Xeno armies would be nice too
(well, for people who play them...)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 15 2018 21:16
basically waiting on the march update and DE dex
then I'll figure out what if anything I'll do with corsairs/DE
if I do though I'll probably be doing some conversions off the new DoK stuff for some of the DE, like the Haem Covens

time to read the Sapce Hulk rules before my frind comes over tomrrow
he's a bit younger than me and - he's never played Space Hulk!!!
oh, also, while I look at te lovely and beautifully painted models on the back of the book, I have some Harlies from Death Masque to paint too... and they were all a bit Ynnarii as well so I feel called to the Reborn
(to a certain extent)
