So local RTT today...2nd round fought the Ultimate Tauhard List :tm: -- 3 Stormsurges and a Riptide. Beat it. 2 dead 'surges bottom of turn two. Pask, Cyclops and Banana Hammock charges FTW.

@amis92 assuming i am using the most recent version there is a minor mistake with commanders. there is only the enforcer suit for 76 points and 6 wounds but not the cheaper version with 5 wounds for all of us who are cheap and greedy

Sorry, I was actually not correct, I was trying to help with your Commander max 1 in force problem...

Hey amis, why's the old commander still in the cat?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 12:16
Also relics aren't hiding based on sept/unit - not sure if you'd added that yet though
Also - who takes 3 stormsurges ... that's not even a tryhard list
That's just dumb

so far 1 made 2 lists and compared points with the book. all seems correct. didnt compare profiles though
sept choice doesnt show in the units but no big deal

is there a more in depth tutorial for the data editor? Ive been experementing with a local copy of the files, but some more indepth help would be apriciated.

Most of us simply tooled around until we figured things out. Learned from others who have moved on. Etc.
There’s not really Tits

This ^^^^
You've got to understand the 3 SS player has been playing that list all of 8th, it's their go-to thing
I was pretty sure I was gonna get spanked
It wasn't an easy win, I promise
Unlike the only other time I've played Tau a couple of months ago and tabled him in 4 turns

this is what i use for CIB, back section is burst cannon, then top and front are two pieces of sprue and the barrels are from pulse rifles https://i.imgur.com/yPBkeO1.jpg

How does it shoot
there are no barrels
Drill your barrels you heathen
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Mar 18 2018 15:09
i was thinking of adding some plasti rod to the front, i think just drilling a hole in will look wierd

You're right. Just a hole there wouldn't look right
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

Something to mark where the shot comes from is needed though
As of now .. it's a club
but its painted, which is far more than I can say for most of my models

well, all the suits
oh, no im wrong. i apperar to have read the xml wrong. not all of them do
damn, I had my hopes up
sorry

Borkan is kinda not worth it I found today unless your playing angainst a gun line.
Your range is so large anyway the extra 6 doesn’t seem needed
R42H

yes. Im not a teriffic fan of vorlir either
commanders with Farsight enclaves are pertty good, from the looks of things. I havent played them yet

@amis92
Mar 18 2018 21:52

@Kohato

Hey amis, why's the old commander still in the cat?

Well, I think because there's no datasheet named "Commander" in Codex it's legally speaking not updated to Codex, so, valid as an Index choice. Or, might be valid.

James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 21:52
It is valid until GW say otherwise
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 21:52
GW has said otherwise.
The model is in the codex.
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 21:52
same as the "Daemon Prince" is still valid in TS and DG lists
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 21:53
The model sold is a commander in xv8 or commander in coldstar. both of which have datasheets in codex.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Mar 18 2018 21:54
But then you couldn't field an XV8 Commander with Stimulant Injector [Index] wargear.
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 21:54
If you want to go down the Model route then I can list off over the next few hours all the millions of ways the |Designers Commentary would break almost every aspect of the game
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 21:54
Yes you canl
Oh, you're thinking that because "Commander in xv8" doesn't appear as a datasheet in the index you can't use stims
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 21:55
the Unit "Commander" from the Index does not exist in the Codex and thus is still usable
since they have split it off into different datasheets with a different unit name for each variant
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 21:55
Not gonna say I agree with that whatsoever, but alright.
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 21:56
Its typical GW nonsense
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Mar 18 2018 21:56
@Kohato tell me how would you support (rules-wise) taking StimInj on Enforcer Commander.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 21:57
Could you take a commander model in enforcer armor before this codex?
or is enforcer armor brand new
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 21:57
"Commander" was the only unit that existed
you could give it a Coldstar Suit
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 21:58
It wasn't, but I understand that.
Coldstar suit was also a datasheet
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 21:58
I must be thinking of 7th then
was wargear at one point
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 21:58
Correct
But if we're doing this deep of understanding. Stims was never on any index datasheet.
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 21:59
new to the codex is the commander in standard crisis suit, whatever that's called
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 21:59
It was in the wargear list.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Mar 18 2018 21:59
Honestly, I don't know what to do. I just thought "better safe than sorry"
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 21:59
doesnt need to be on a datasheet
the datasheet said it could take from the support systems list (which is under Wargear in the book)
and the items in that list changed
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 21:59
image.png
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 21:59
but the example GW give is of the exact same situation with a dude losing a poweraxe from a list
so GW have themselves set a president for being able to use index list items
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 22:00
Ah right-o, so that's allowed.
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 22:00
oddly
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 22:00
But it shouldn't be on the enforcer suit then?
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 22:00
its on the exact document you just snipped that from
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 22:00
because that never existed?
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 22:00
like, down at the bottom
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 22:00
Yea it is
The entire thing is confusing as shit
James
@skonk
Mar 18 2018 22:01
thats because Games Workshop, collectively, are idiots

@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 22:01
Oh also Amis, Might I suggest an awesome end user POV improvement?
Move the weapon relics into an upgrade for the weapon itself.
That'd be pretty handy I think

I'm still not sure how to properly do the Sept thing.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 22:03
Like limiting the relics?
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Mar 18 2018 22:04
I mean, theoretically you can have a detachment and mix-and-match SEPTs inside.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 22:04
Max = 0 if less than 1 instance of Sept in ancestor.
Should limit it to a choice inside the sept of the relic.
Can you mix and match septs inside?

Oh ... that's ugly
I'll stop embarassing myself with useless improvements then - ... this codex is ugly as sin in some ways

Yeah. I mean, power to the infinite combinations, but 99% of them are shite, so... eh.

no! The necron ones are the same :(
Thanks for the quick work though - was able to get a game with the codex in today :)

speaking of necrons, is there a beta upload for Necron Codex?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 22:09
As in - a cat file? No, we don't release prior to the GW release, and I wouldn't open that can of worms with a beta file even if we did
I have a cat file ready that has most of the changes in, waiting for the codex proper then i'll make the quick edits so we can release. Most offendingly ... are deathmarks and lychguard troops or not/

im betting not, they have the elite symbol

Or are they a brand new thing. Troop Slot that are elites once they are on the field!

Gosh that'd be so beautiful... One can dream
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 2018 22:11
Could just as easily swing that they used the wrong symbol template.
rather than put them in the wrong points table. It's the same easy mistake each way
so ... who knows. But yes - I do hope they are troops

Only for Overlord on foot though - can't take it on a CCB :(
That'd be sexy if you could

MEPHRIT-Merciless Tyrant: +6" to the Warlord's assault weapons. Also lets the Warlord target characters, even if they are not the closest target. Nice! Obviously only effective if you give your Lord a Staff, or more noticeably a CCB with a Tesla Cannon to give your HQ a 3 shot 30" S6 sniper rifle that hits on a 2+, with -1AP at 15".
that is something I look forward to

Luckily necrons don’t have any ugly old vs new things to worry about
Other than the newly brought to my attention multiple dynasty relics :/
