@CrusherJoe eh, I suppose, the point drops make that more tenable than things originally looked
for those that want to fuck about with drukhari points, I should have those in on branch tonight

I love it when elegant selection logic works
I created a <Kabal>, wych cult and coven flag
attached them to the obsessions and mixed/ynnari detachments as needed, and then set the appropriate units to disappear if the flags were not present
so if you pick a wych cult obsession, anything that would break that vanishes
you pick ynnari, all the coven stuff and drazar vanish
but the default is "None (Mixed Detachment)"
:D

@/all anyone that wants to play with some of the DE stuff, its pushed to branch

I tried to arrange pics but...y'know...can't be too careful with those previews
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 01 2018 04:45
its all good
mainly for all the obsessions and the triple WL strat
also apparently the guy who had the DE codex before didn't link some items but just made them a sub-entry with duobled points for two weapons
so I need to rip a bunch of that out later

I need to be done buying eldar for a while :P sadly the two wave serpents, a guardian box, and a hemlock were all that were at the local stores :( but should keep me busy between the new GK and helping my friend with his dark eldar

Hi guys, is anyone having trouble with Battlescribe, don't seem to be able to get new data?
tekton
@tekton
Apr 01 2018 07:16
@MartinBuckland we pushed a new version of data a few hours ago, sometimes it goes down/up for a few hours after that :)

I was fiddling with some DE detachments earlier, is there a mounted HQ option at all??
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 01 2018 16:42
I've only been given points so far
so no idea
well, wrong paste. but someone might find it useful
@FarseerVeraenthis considering such a thing was missing from the points section, I doubt it
no confirmation of improved transport capacity yet
tbh I'd just go double venoms, throw a court of the archon filled with sslyth in the other with the archon
since venoms are now hilariously cheap
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 01 2018 18:52
Yeah, but I wanted a fully mounted outrider detachment... Anyway, my nearly-nari force is looking sizable... With the start collecting boxes and gangs of commorrah I don't have

#2751 how the hell did that get missed for 4~ months?
As in, how did nobody else report that lol

i dont see whats different
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 22:19
The S-Foils are in attack position of course.
James
@skonk
Apr 01 2018 22:20
but thats always been possible with the kit
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 22:20
Canopy, wings, canards, t-laser is slightly different
vertical stabilizer is different too
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 22:21
Yea, nothing vastly new.
Just re-sculpting work from the plastic kit. Was in a diorama at WHW
Or new resin ... can't remember if the new kit was gonna be resin or plastic
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 22:21
both resin
it’s mostly just a resculpt to better match the newer design astetic at FW
larry broke it down in that post
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 22:23
Oh wow i'm late. That was april last year lol
I wonder how much the new one actually weighs
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 22:23
my bet is significantly lighter
James
@skonk
Apr 01 2018 22:24
the new one has been out for ages
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 22:24
because there’s some considerable reductions in overall demensions
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 22:24
Shush, i'm a slow person
Totally didn't realize it'd already been out lol

See the new material GW's using?
I'm not sure it'll stand up to storage in my car in the summer.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 22:29
lol yeah that’s great
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 22:29
Also. As bad as lead is ...
you know, being lead.

@skonk

Apr 01 2018 22:29
It seems to have held so much more detail in the sculpts
than pewter does.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 22:30
it did yes.
HOWEVER it was notorious for softening in heat
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 22:30
Oh, just like chocolate.
Lol
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 22:30
so while initially cast it had more detail, it did soften and muddle with age
They went to pewter for more reasons then just “lead’s bad, kthnksbye"
so i’m porting a 30k list (3500) to the 8e fan dex rules just for the lulz; so far in the 2 sections i’ve gone through so far (HQ and Elites), i’ve lost about 35% of my points lol
major drop on praetor, slight increase on jump apothecaries, and major drop on destroyers
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 22:36
See that's a good thing.
You can almost get that entire massive list in a 2k :smile:
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 01 2018 22:37
@alphalas I can't stand the 30k 8e fandex
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 22:37
yeah the destroyers are majorly overcosted in 30k
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 01 2018 22:37
it has so many problems
and the guys working on it are one giant circlejerk that HATE new ideas
such as "8e drop pod and reserves handling in general is absolute garbage, perhaps not repeat thier mistakes"
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 22:40
... Guess I won't mention I'm working on it.
Meany face.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 22:40
which one are you?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 22:40
I mean i'm not. But I still won't mention it.

@Kohato well, I left some feedback on dakka and while the guy who posted the thread was civil, I got 3 PMs basically spitting in my face and so I washed my hands of it
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 22:41
Oh dakka
Such a welcoming environment
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 01 2018 22:41
mostly because the Heresy30k login I have is broken and the admins have been non-responsive about it

WindstormSCR

Apr 01 2018 23:07
wonder how many you'll get before the FAQ
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 23:07
while infantry dropped a lot, i forgot just how much vehicles went up >.<
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 01 2018 23:07
yep
and all your assault troops and drop pods and reserve shenanigans DISAPPEARED
because 50% rule
so no more DoR
or DAV
at least that work remotely close to the same
also enjoy trying to use that many drop pods and reserves with the 9" rule
I have a hard enough time doing it with 5-man Eldar squads on 25mm bases in 40k
let alone a drop pod and 10 32mms
(yes, there is much salt here)
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 23:20
I'm kind of sad I'll never be able to use my argument
Since I doubt anyone will stick around the bugrep to argue elite/troops
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 23:20
@WindstormSCR i get there’s much salt, but they’ve said you use the 8e BRB unless otherwise stated
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 23:21
I'll gladly add in a troops option for the relevant points. However it will link to nothing at all, because there is no troops dataslate for Deathmarks and Lychguard. And since they exist in Index, but apparently not codex, the elite Lychguard/DM are still valid for use.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 23:21
and unless i’m missing it, there’s nothing in the AoDAL doc that contradicts BRB reserves shenanigans
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 01 2018 23:21
Apparently the new store manager we'll be getting at my locla GW is the same guy that does the 30k events at adepticon
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 23:22
oh really?
Is he a prick?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 01 2018 23:22
No, the exact opposite
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 23:22
good for you then!
I wish I had a good local shop :(
WindstormSCR

Apr 01 2018 23:22
multiple slayer sword winner and did a bunch of the old gamesday display tables when they used to do them at the Baltimore convention center
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 23:23
I lie, I have a great comic shop nearby that orders 40k for me at the normal 15% off, but it's not a shop that does events or anything, he's just a cool dude
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 01 2018 23:23
Haven't met him yet, but the guys that did know him have said things should be fun
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 01 2018 23:23
awsome
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 23:23
yeah all the pods have the same verbage as the 8e versions
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 01 2018 23:23
the last two managers were also great, so good times ahead I hope
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 01 2018 23:47

ok i think i like this lol
@WindstormSCR i’ll pm you - i think this serves well lol
