That’s a lot of announcements...
And an official army builder that I hope ends up being better than azyr...
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 22 2018 03:05
@tekton Likelyhood of it being better than Azyr is ... well ... let’s say that it only uses power points, not full points.
And ... plastic Sisters... in 2019.

@tekton

@OftKilted they mentioned a points/match play one is coming after the power level one is done

let's be honest though, it's incredibly unlikely that they're going to put the rules in their app (there are none in Azyr), so we won't all be out of a non-job!
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 22 2018 08:51
yeah just looked at the app ... and you can pull in a unit and that's it .. it lists the name and the PL cost ... no relics, WL wargear no functionality ... and ONE guy is going to implement it for matched play by April ?
hooo boy

That Rollcall thing is basically Warscroll Builder 40k Edition
there's no real validation in any wya
no detachments
those Deepkin models are pretty though...

i honestly dont think that roster builder will take any existing scribe users away
that new knight proper looks like a shrunk down warlord titan
i love it

@WindstormSCR you can fiddle with the CAT as much as you like, I'm certain there are places that could be improved :smile:
although, what exactly have you spotted??
and also, yay!! all my armies will have a Codex soon
that means more to read, and build, and possibly buy too...
exciting times indeed :smile:

@CrusherJoe
Mar 22 2018 09:21
After years of teasing and being ignored...this is the best damned news I've gotten in this hobby in years
Also...the new Knight...I loveses me some knights...dunno how I feel about the new one...It's....pretty much a standard knight with more weapons strapped on it? I was kinda hoping for a different shape -- like a warlord, for example? Maybe? EH WHO CARES PLASTIC SISTERS.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 22 2018 09:25
hahahaha
also, I WISH GW would release something that works "properly" before announcing it to the world
have you tried Battleroll or Roll Call?? I concur with the sentiment of others "RIP Tom Hewit"

Smaller weapons on the shoulders but i mean... it's the same shape n that

baby warlord

I just can't xD

Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 22 2018 09:31
It's basically just a regular knight chassis on steroids. I dunno. I guess I wanted something completely new and not just a slightly changed version of the same ol' thing
I mean I'm gonna buy one (or three) regardless because new knight with what looks to be interesting weapons...and I loveses me some knights. Hopefully they'll be viable again with the new 'dex.
Any idea what those new weapons on it are?
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe hopes the not-plasma one is a shorter-ranged volcano cannon. :)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 22 2018 09:37
It has capacitors on it; but it also looks vaguely like the Knight battle cannon
So maybe?

are the necrons from forgebane any good? got a few mates buying it for the warglaves and thinking of picking up the necrons
James
@skonk
Mar 22 2018 11:28
everything in the box is very usable
warriors and immortals are pretty much staples of most lists

@Kohato want another knight? I've got one I'm trying to offload
Not to feed your addiction or anything lol
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 22 2018 11:40
@CloverFox yup, forge bane contains a bunch of stuff you won't mind duplicating .. just don't get trapped into a 50/50 payment on one ... those knights form the majority of the cost .. I'm going 65/35 with a mate
James
@skonk
Mar 22 2018 11:41
Even at a 50/50 split its still a saving but yeh, for it to be totally fair the knight/admech half is worth much more
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Mar 22 2018 11:50
kwl, thanks :thumbsup:
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 22 2018 11:52
The best option is to just buy two.
And keep them both.
James
@skonk
Mar 22 2018 11:57
ive got plenty of warriors myself but another 10 wont hurt, but currently i only have 1 unit of immortals and 1 unit of lychguard
as in 1 unit of 5 of reach
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 22 2018 11:57
See. You need more
3 boxes.
James
@skonk
Mar 22 2018 11:57
so everything in the necron side is good for me, with the warriors being the least useful but still useful
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 22 2018 11:57
40 warriors. 20 immortals
James
@skonk
Mar 22 2018 11:57
and the immortal and lychguard kits can be built as other stuff too
i currently only have 1 unit of death marks
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 22 2018 11:58
Yea but why would you.
Sword and board. And Tesla immortals.
James
@skonk
Mar 22 2018 11:58
and i think i have 1 unit of the other build of the lychguard
but the sword/shield versions are the ones i like
i also want the knights, can use em with my custodes or blood angles
the skitarii boyos i'll give to a mate
or crush them and turn em into terrain :)
Earl Bishop

@Kohato Why Tesla Over Gauss for the immortals?
Did they do a flip flop back again?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 22 2018 12:12
Why not? Overlord buff makes them explode on 5s
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 22 2018 12:12
Mephrit dynasty code gives Tesla AP-1 ... so it's a slight edge over gauss
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 22 2018 12:12
And now -1 at half? Done.
Shred infantry
Gsc
As well
Are left. But yea that’s the last 5 incl sisters
Also i've always been a fan of tesla. My dice are kind to me with 6s.
And overwatch with tesla is just funny
Oh, 2 overwatch hits? Well, that's 6 wound rolls.

it had better be of Epic proportions though ... it needs to cover off the bajillion emaisl they got to their shiny new email address
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 22 2018 12:20
i thought Epic faqs were mostly "you should discuss this with your opponent before the game"
or am i mis-remembering?
i seem to recall the "5 minute pre-game discussion" being mentioned a lot
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 22 2018 12:22
No clue, this will be the first "super faq"
as part of their new semi-annually release.
bi-annually?

Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 22 2018 12:50

do necrons get nurgled?
Do they have metal dicks?
Can metal dicks rust or fall off?
does the same apply to the AdMech?
Are there augments for that type of thing?
Does Slaneesh care about robotic members?

Questions over questions...

Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 22 2018 12:53
No they are metal.
Yes.
Yes, sadly. Showers are a difficult thing.
Some ... others are still flesh and bone snicker
Very much so, Cawl has 5
Slaneesh prefers them. They have various settings and modes.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 22 2018 12:55

but vehicles can get nurgled. Vehicles are metal. Therefore, following the stonemaker argument, necrons can get nurgled.

I quote Arch Warhammer here: "And Slaneesh likes giant electrical dragon dildos".

Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 22 2018 12:58
Vehicles don't have cleansing gauss and tesla running through their circuits.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 22 2018 12:58
tesla is just electricity.
Gauss would most likely not "run" through "circuits", but break them apart.
you are getting lax, old man.

so is radioactive plutinium in most depictions.
Therefore necrons are radioactive.

I've never been TRULY away, but this chat has been going so fast that I couldn't be arsed to read all that stuff... but I'm bored and dont wanna work AND there are new Knights coming! :D

And Tesla get associated with any thing to do with electricity out of pure laziness because I'm 100% certain no Necron heard of a hairless ape performing experiments with free electron distribution in what would be 40,000 years in the past, while they were still doing "the big sleep"

Mar 22 2018 14:32
"accent is a manner of pronunciation peculiar to a particular individual, location, or nation."
So, if you would actually have a forge world that uses MSB whereas another uses LSB, you kind of have a point. The challenging question is - would you consider those as a difference in "pronounciation"?
seeing that binary actually is a language "spoken" aka emitted by the AdMech, you could make a case and say "yes", be designated a heretek and purged or simply not argue against me and keep on compiling data.
so, which is it?

if deathwatch are again horribly disappointing, I'm not sure if I'll do another flavor of elves, do nids, or shuffle over to AoS

@CrusherJoe Eldar and Tau have the most options for good airbrush work

Yeah but you know about "to thine own self be true"?

@skonk
Mar 22 2018 21:55
I'd go with Daemons
for the best scope for airbrushing

@CrusherJoe hmmmmm. why not go GSC/Nids?

I've got a few tzeentch models I could ship....
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 22 2018 21:57
I actually cant imagine how it would feel to have exactly 0 unpainted models
and then paint things as you buy them
that would be something completely new for me...
Joe Beddoe

I came up with a daemon army that was bloodletters, a few Khorne heralds and daemonettes, heralds and a KoS
It was...like...160 total bloodletters and daemonettes
Arrived in two waves: turn one bloodletter bomb, turn two the daemonettes arrive
In my head it worked out pretty well...but...that's in my head
But then there's the ONE army no one has mentioned yet
Orks.
My problem with Orks is people (at least around here) that play Orks are some lazy hobbyists, and that's not a thing I can abide by
As no, "No, you can't just slather on some superglue, roll it around in your bits bin and call it 'Orky', you jackass."

I was thinking Orks
but for some reason they didn't fit
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 22 2018 22:06
So for me -- and this is just me -- an army has to be an extension of something in my soul
Guard is because the very first thing I remember drawing in second grade was my teacher asked us to draw "what we wanted to be when we grew up"
I drew a tank with a little word bubble over the hatch, "FIRE!" and wrote "tank general" because I didn't know the word commander LOL
Sisters appeal to my sense of need for beauty and faith in an overwhelmingly ugly world
And Wolves are my inner scapper
So that covers mostly everything
But the "darker" emotions...so...chaos it is, really. Slaanesh or Drukhari.
I have thousands of points of Ultramarines...but it took me a long time to realize the reason I was never truly happy with them is because they weren't a reflection of a part of me, or enough of a reflection of a big enough part of me.
...does any of this make sense? Or am I just gone-on-round-the-bend nuts? :)

for me its down to what i find fun to play
I wasnt finding Tau fun as my first army
i got some chaos space marines
instantly found then WAY more fun
got necrons from a m8 cos he was getting rid and i wanted them to stay in the group, actually quite liked em but not as much as the chaos
and then recently ive found myself really liking custodes
i lose more with the custodes than i do my chaos tho
but something about the simplicity of them i like
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 22 2018 22:14
Agreed.
Honestly I like what Custodes bring to the table for my Guard.
James
@skonk
Mar 22 2018 22:15
i liked the custodes when i ran just them
but adding Greyfax and a CP generator battalion of guard added some gravy

I need one more Allarus box to do some really filthy deep strike tricks to annoy people -- I think getting enough hard hitting deep strike is the key to winning games in 8th
James
@skonk
Mar 22 2018 22:16
initially i bought 1 pack of everything
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 22 2018 22:16
Right?? Greyfax is so very good at what she does
James
@skonk
Mar 22 2018 22:16
and enough troops to run 3 units
but ive added 6 more bikes and another set of the terminators
with that pack build as 1 normal dude, 1 shield captain and 1 banner
to give me deepstrike options on the characters
whats funny tho, ive tried several builds now
but almost always what happens is my elites and bikes die first
and then the basic troop dudes footslogging over get there on turn 3 or 4 and clean up
i run units of 3 with one of them having a shield and sword so the unit gets some 3++ till he dies
i had a bit of a tutorial game of Shadespire on wednesday
actually quite enjoyed it
i won
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 22 2018 22:19
You're on to something good right there
Shadespire is fun. I don't think I'll be going deep into it, but it's a nice change of pace

im still waiting for this ebay seller to send the khorne dudes i bought after i ran my chair wheel over the damn sprue from the box game and broke 2 or 3 of the models :(

@CrusherJoe chaos soup requires lots of moving parts, and still plays a lot like imperials
the reason I like having eldar and IoM soup is they play radically differently
drukhari especially have a level of "gotta go fast" not even craftworlds can match
