Okay just making sure I hadn't wandered into a Sigmar group by accident
No no no
Just making sure
I scrolled up like 4 pages and it was all Sigmar convo :)

Mar 27 2018 00:25
admittedly the only reason I'm looking at trees is because most of the rest of the 40k regulars are picking it up now that there is sufficient setting to make things interesting
one guy finally coming back to his skaven because GHB 2017 game them a bunch of flavor back

I still think that sigmar desperately needs unit options to cost

You make the treelord ancient a general.

well yes
but this is when I was trying more conventional things

Hey
So I think I have a solution to multi-sept relics.
and validating.
Set Hidden to True if instance of "Sept Choice" in force, then additional conditional to show only if correct sept is chosen.
If no sept/dynasty chooser is in there, it is a multi-dynasty force, because by choosing one, you're saying that detachment is solely that faction
@amis92 in particular for the above.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 27 2018 02:43
Yea, that works
Hides it from the relic group if you are choosing a dynasty and it is not sautekh. Shows it if you are not choosing a dynasty for the force. (And also hides if no staff of light)
Gitter's being dumb, I can't upload it here.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 02:45
Shouldn't it only show if you have a necron warlord though?
since we're being this anal about it
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 27 2018 02:45
Why would you not in a necron force?
What other than a necron could be a warlord in a necron list.
but yes, the relic group will be hidden unless a warlord entry is present.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 02:46
no idea, but if we're going to make this a thing then I'd be curious to see how you'd make that work with imperial lists
or chaos soup
or aeldari/nid soup

Set hidden to False > And > Greater than 0 Warlord > Ancestor is instance of Faction: Space Marines
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 02:47
I think the best solution then is to have a warlord entry in the cat with a link to the GST warlord entry
so you know which parent faction has the warlord regardless of which force it's in
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 27 2018 02:48
It'd be more challenging in imperium/chaos cats
but perfectly easy to do in xenos
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 02:48
example "Astra miliatrum Warlord" with a link to warlord
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 27 2018 02:49
I wasn't validating in the case of multi-dynasty detachments
WindstormSCR

if instance of "astra miliwhatsits warlord" in roster
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

@WindstormSCR I suggest that your list isn't THAT fluffy, since you're playing as Iyanden and only have 1 wraith unit (the Hemlock)... But I'm sure it'll be fun to play, cloudstrike Scorpion will certainly be a "strike"

Well, that's it then .. Raven Guard (and Codex Space Marines) are officially dead to me. got my butt whipped by Thousand sons ... he bought 9 spawn, some termies and scarab thingy marines and three of those Mutalith beast things .. the Terminators in cover ate up 6 las-cannon shots in one turn and took a single wound. then the smites started and we melted.
tabled by turn 2

but honestly ... 14 wounds a piece on the mutaliths with T7 ... took 4 rounds of attacks for 5 LC and 3 TH's to down it (Shrike was busy buffing the Dev squads to try and kill the terminators ..

I think I should have sent the Vanguard after the termies ... they were a threat that just sat shooting stuff .. I didn't play agressive enough with my scouts and tacticals to deny his only shooting team

3 mutalith is taking the piss a bit tbh.

they weren't really dangerous though .. just tough ... they had 9 attacks a piece, but whiffed pretty much all the attacks on both of them and killed 3 marines

and lastly .. I just didn't screen my devs ... needed to drop the assault marines for more scouts to just speed bump the dev squads

The same is actually true for Interceptor Drones from Sunshark Bomber, although you'd have to detach them first and then calculate movement to end up within 3" of Devilfish. Remoras could actually start the game inside xD

Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Mar 27 2018 11:26
Well, if you're not super-concerned about detachment limit, you could fit 12 separate Remora drones (4 Air Wing detachments with 3 units of 1 Remora) in a single fish, deploying 13 units at once on the battlefield.

Mar 27 2018 14:58
In what context?

Mar 27 2018 14:59
Profile data/rules
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 27 2018 14:59
I make necrons word for word. BS is a reference tool, as such, a reference is useless if the data is not accurate and complete.
If including something would make the ability/rule clearer, include it.
is my thoughts on it.
Just remember, a little bit of plagerism is still plagerism.
So don't use that as a mental loophole to justify adding less.

CloverFox

I'm talking about this sort of thing:
If the Brass Stampede contained the maximum number of units at the start of the battle, roll a dice for each enemy unit within 3" of any units from the Brass Stampede in each of your hero phases; on a roll of 2 or more, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds [...].
where I've cut out the rest of the text (the [...]) because it's just fluff.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 27 2018 15:10
That's fine. The rule is complete and posted.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 27 2018 15:10
or this: In your hero phase, the Shrinemaster can pray to the Dark Gods [...]. When the Shrinemaster prays, pick a MORTAL unit within 16" and roll a dice. On a 3 or more his prayer is answered and its effects take place until your next hero phase.
or even this: :)
Each time you roll a wound roll of 5 or more for a Ghorgon's attack it [...] can immediately make 1 extra attack with the same melee weapon.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 27 2018 15:12
Note: That sort of editing is more for AoS, which I suppose was the point of this question in the first place.
40k codexes don't have that sort of fluff to abilities and rules.

If I do I have other stuff I can do first. Got a go from me.

@FarseerVeraenthis it actually takes less linecount than expected
I put the show/hide on the actual linked profile or rule itself, it affects all instances

Well look at the bright side of this DE book nonsense; at least it’s not as bad as gathering storm lol
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 21:20
that's the thing
I'm doing all three eldar cats at once and bringing them all up to our current guidelines on Warlord traits, relics, and moving over to ynnari requiring nesting and being adjusted for in the other cats
Jon Kissinger

Well yes, but you weren’t around for the nightmare that was gathering storm

I know the cat files started crashing around that time on iOS

Case in point - we had to put tempestus into the SM cat because of the BT formation

neat, got it figured out
if you want to play around with things:
Eldar Overhaul Branch, make a battalion with ynnari and harlequins
best part: Nesting order doesn't matter
:D

Mar 27 2018 21:38
lmao. no relic validation this time
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 21:38
for what, halries?
let me commit these things first
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 27 2018 21:38
no, for relic units
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 21:39
I can poke at it after
I think I found a decent way to do it
oh, nvm, FW relic works on categories, which is where BS tells us to fuck off
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 27 2018 21:41
the astartes relic thing is a scope issue - it can only look at its current force and lower. there's no way to look at higher level forces in the same detachment
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 21:43
would doing relic validation by force at the GST level help?
basically shift the relic check to the GST then feed result to the cat
that's what I just did with "Is there a ynnari warlord in here somewhere"
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 27 2018 21:47
uh yeah, that'll probably work
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 21:47
if you want to make GST edits you could mess around with it in the eldar Overhaul branch
I'm done mucking around in the GST there but its changed on that branch
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 27 2018 21:47
i'd have to take a look at the specifics, but it should be quite straight forward
cool, no hurry
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 21:49
best part is if you do have a ynnari warlord, it'll hide warlord/warlord traits for all the other types of eldar when I'm done
and relics unless you expressly select the stratagem

fixing fw to remove the FW first thing would be sweet
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 22:03
I'm not 100% sure it would work
because categories are the bane of our existance (I can't even add the ynnari category to units on a conditional)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 27 2018 22:09
yeah, this could work, but it'd be ugly as hell
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 22:10
long as its done on my working branch should be all good
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 27 2018 22:10
ugly for us i mean, it'd be fine for the user

Yeah I'm not patient enough for FLG...took them forever to get an order to me, GS3 I think
No bueno

@tekton
Mar 27 2018 22:26
it's not so bad, it means i can give my neighbor half the forgebane box, the new codex, and a battle primer from the launch of 8th all at the same time
he's been out of work for a while so I hope it helps cheer him up a bit
James
@skonk
Mar 27 2018 22:27
i have 2 forgebanes worth of crons to build at some point but i'll wait till i have the codex to see how i want to build them
i already have a big necron army but this stuff is still a nice addition

@WindstormSCR it's appreciated :) right now it's just going to be painting and "working with what I got" for the next little while. There's a new Warhammer (not GW, but the Warhammer branded) store opening on Saturday that I was going to pick up some more stuff more...wish the FAQ was going to be out before then, but meh
it may also stay a "friendly" game army, or a way for other people to practice against...we'll see how I like painting and playing. Already put the magnet stuff you and other suggested in an evernote note

@GenWilhelm
did you just do that on master?
FUCK
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 27 2018 23:08
no, its on a branch
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 23:08
yeah
you need to do it on the EldarOverhaul Branch
the GST has already been edited there
as it stands it will conflict on merge
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 27 2018 23:09
yeah, it's a branch of your branch
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 23:09
I wish github had better flagging then
because it looked like it was a branch of master
I nearly choked on my tea
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 27 2018 23:39
YAY
it all works
with a minor increase to linecount
I'm going to do DE then get this ready for a master merge since I haven't added anything new
and it'll mean less issues if I have to do something awkward with DE or updates
