I am assuming the Astra Militarum way of doing vehicle damage tables is a good standard?
There is a bit of a mix in the Death Korp file I am thinking of fixing
Cultiststeve

Why does the basalisk have stat damage (HS) instead of the name of the vehicle like everything elsE?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 25 2018 01:12
probably to do with something different in the standards when the indexes were first released
Cultiststeve
@Cultiststeve
Mar 25 2018 01:14
Would it be best to put any changes to another catalog in a different pull request, or is it fine to put them all in one?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 25 2018 01:17
if you've already submitted the PR best to leave it be until it's been reviewed, then make a new one with any changes since the last PR
not as efficient, but allows the keeper to review in chunks
Cultiststeve
@Cultiststeve
Mar 25 2018 01:18
Last one has been accepted already
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 25 2018 01:18
then just lump any new ones into a new PR
Cultiststeve
@Cultiststeve
Mar 25 2018 01:18
Cool, ty
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 25 2018 01:18
generally 1 PR per affected cat file
Cultiststeve
@Cultiststeve
Mar 25 2018 01:18
ah thats what I was wondering
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 25 2018 01:19
that way if something needs reverted only the problem cat needs to be

@Cultiststeve the basilisk having a track named HS has to do with the fact that basilisks manticores wyverns and everything else had the same wound track in the Index
Also with the russes are you being confused by the fact that FW russes actually have a different wound track then GW russes?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 25 2018 09:18
I’m going to close that request and verify myself that things are correct in the file.

@GenWilhelm

Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 11:14
I’ll get it added today.
If no one does before this afternoon.

Mar 25 2018 11:38
@alphalas I dont think I needed to change the Russ's profile. And I didnt intent to change any of the actual data, just made it so all the would tracks used the same profile type and made seperate ones for the shared (HS) profile so the actual vehicle name appears in the roster
Ummm... folkes, we have official competition inbound...
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Mar 25 2018 13:08
He said it's going to be only Power levels, so I doubt we'll have any serious competition from that
R42H
@R42H
Mar 25 2018 13:09
only power levels ... that's silly
praise be to the greater good, I was worried there...
Alex Baur

"i really wanted there to be a quick and easy way to build lists"

Bit late on the news, but yeah combat roster is going to crash hard with most
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 25 2018 16:37
So, some news from the front
The 7 Flyrant list from Adepticon is some utter pure bullSHIT.
@FarseerVeraenthis permission to summarily execute Ynnari?
  1. There, FTFY
  1. Permission granted! Fire at will.
Also, played against my arch-nemesis (and super cool guy and good friend) in the tournament yesterday. Last time we played we played for 3.5 hours, ground down to him running away with it like 28-10 or sometthing crazy like that
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 25 2018 16:45
This time, however, we got 5 turns in (it being a tournament) and a couple of failures to launch on my part resulted in a 19-14 game. Mike was all, "Man, you've gotten better at this game," and "keep playing your list, it has everything you need." It cost me first place to lost to him like that, but it was the best damned game I've played in months. So much fun. It's good to have a good friend and rival to push you.
My first opponent played Maggy, Morty, 3 daemon princes and a Sicaran.
He went first
End of my (bottom of) turn one, both Maggy and Morty were dead, dead, dead.
I :heart: Guard. I :heart: Guard with Banana Hammock even more.

Well played
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 25 2018 16:59
Thank you. :)
I just remembered this one
Primarch Season.jpg
That's literally what it was LOL
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 25 2018 17:25
Now, having said that, I'll gladly trade the Banana Hammock in for 0-1 limit for each HQ model per detachment
Because Flyrant Spam is...stupid
tekton
@tekton
Mar 25 2018 17:30
My only army that just shrugged off the flyrant spam recently was my AdMech army thanks to dunecrawlers...so I’m 1-3 against that list this month :(
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 25 2018 18:37
Erm, @WindstormSCR wrt Ynnari, could we wait until all the three Aeldari codex are out, what with harlequins already teased?? Otherwise, yeah, we can kill it sooner if there are big changes after the March update...
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 25 2018 18:54
Omg! If the photo at the end of the Drukhari preview is the new Start Collecting it looks like I'll be picking one up, the discount will be incredible!

@tekton
Mar 25 2018 19:17
Does look awesome
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 19:20
Armigers added :) Adding necron w/ cloak now then i'll release.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 19:40
Oh, @Thairne - if you don't want to maintain IK/Titanicus, I'll take it over. Dunno how your name got attached if you didn't maintain it.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 25 2018 19:55
I can, was pretty busy this weekend. Mum's BDay. Last time I checked @Crowbar90 had IKs starting with 8th...
If I shall maintain it, I will, I just need to know that it IS mine :P
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 19:56
Gotcha - well it's g2g for armigers at least. You can copy what you want over to Admech
Though I guess that may have to wait for the codex to see that they can be questor mechanicus
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 25 2018 19:59
if I remember right Crowbar did a checkbox to select between admech rules and ik rules - no taking over necessary, it's all in one package!
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 20:00
Not in the IK codex
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 25 2018 20:01
weird. Lemme have a gander...
im pretty sure there are no knights in the admech file
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 20:01
Yea, I'm looking at that now, there's not
Guess we just pulled from IK and ignored questor mechanicus keyword
since you can't toggle category :/
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 25 2018 20:03
hm... I am sure he at least had that planned or something... ah shucks.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 20:04
There doesn't appear to be any indication in the admech codex that allows external knights
just the listed knights being Questor Mechanicus ...
which only really effects cancicles and strategems being used on them, so nothing BS wise
which means armigers can't be in admech lists as questor mechanicus until the IK codex
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 25 2018 20:05

SHA-1: a2ef634b56edd73c90ff3c079c7d9f801bd2b877

  • Imperial Knights v6

Removed Questor Mechanicus/Questor Imperialis selector.
Added Warlord Traits and Relic from Chapter Approved 2017.

for some reason he removed it in dezember '17
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 20:06
Huh, I wonder why
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 25 2018 20:07
no idea, but I'm pretty sure he had a good reason. Maybe he'll pop in and unguard his knowledge which is power as well
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 20:07
Here's hoping for IK Codex soon. I want armigers with shroudpsalm
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 25 2018 20:07
wasnt an IK Dex already anounced in the big Sisters thing?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 20:07
I mean, next

:smile:
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 25 2018 20:08
well that is actually new.
I feel like I should be confused
but I'm actually right!
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 20:08
Hahah
DK being drukhari? dunno why I said DK instead of DE
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 25 2018 20:09
because you'Re a good corporate drone that adopted the Astra Miliwhat!
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 20:10
IG dammit.
So, new SKU - but the sprue looks the same ...
Tomb blades too ... that's a bit shitty ... lets stop people from ordering until the codex is out eventhough these models have been there for years?
James
@skonk
Mar 25 2018 22:38
probably repackage with updated rules
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 22:39
I guess? But why just those two.
Lords and crypteks also got warscroll changes.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 25 2018 22:46
Who was it that said Wraiths are like the Squids in The Matrix?
That seems....apt
a good friend of mine picked up Necrons yesterday based on what I told him about all the noise in here about them LOL
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 25 2018 22:47
So forgebane point costs are odd lol
It has the new point cost for cryptek
but old cost for staff of light that he wields
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 25 2018 22:48
The GF just got in a new batch of glitter.
She threatened to apply them to my Sisters.
It IS a very nice deep purple.
But...no.
