giving it another half hour, then calling it quits
this is... a very messy codex to wrangle

@/all can someone merge that and release
it should be good to go but if there are issues I'll deal with it after I've actually slept
since I cannot merge/release (and probably shouldn't this tired even I was able to)

Am I the only one that wonders what happened to the good fluff writing that's been present in the last few codexes that seems...missing...in the porn elves book?
There was the one thing about a simulacra of the Golden Throne with blood and viscera all over it after some Custodes went missing that (I think) indicates the Drukhari are at least looking into how to seal Khaine's Gate
Or am I missing something? I really want to be missing something.

I've not read the fluff bits yet so I can't comment
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 07 2018 17:48
It's basically torture porn without the actual torture or porn
It's almost like a movie review of something akin to the Saw movies
Where there's a lot of discussion about torture and debauchery but no actual torture or debauchery.
Which is ultimately a good thing (as I dislike torture porn) but...when your entire schtick is basically boiled down to "blah blah blah torture, blah blah blah betrayal, blah blah murder, blah blah gladiatrix wych arena bloodsports blah" it's pretty one-dimensional, with no real advancement of the overall 40K plot
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 07 2018 18:31
Righto, I'll prioritise accordingly
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Apr 07 2018 19:26
@CrusherJoe Perhaps it’s because of they actually included torture and porn ... they couldn’t market it to all their customers?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 07 2018 19:29
Oh no I understand
Nor am I suggesting they should have done otherwise
I've read some of the BL DE books, they walked a fine line. I guess I wish they had put more in to the fluff section
The DE codex is strong, though, y'all. Get ready for it.
The problem I can foresee is the whole table-flip potential that is Agents of Vect.

i spent all morning watching people try to argue that DE should get some snowflake rules so they can take multiple patrols in addition to the rest of their army
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 07 2018 19:42
yeah, it's quite funny
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 07 2018 19:42
(in the context of events with a detachment limit this is)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 07 2018 19:43
I mean, the drukhari don't have any Lords of War
so really, you WANT to take three patrols rather than a single battalion and "something else"
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 07 2018 19:43
why yes, i would also like to take 3 different factions in their own detachments and have it only count as one, and also be compensated with 4 CP for my efforts
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 07 2018 19:43
because then you can take advantage of various different obsessions and strtagem
well, if you break it down to bare minimums, 3 x patrol vs 1 x battalion is actually an HQ tax
for 2k points, you easily have enough slots in 3 x patrols
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 07 2018 19:45
yes, but there's also obsessions to consider. after filling out the minimum you get to pick and choose any units you want, and get obsessions on them with no other drawbacks
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 07 2018 19:45
what other detachment arrangements are people trying to suggest??
yeah, with 3 x patrol
why is it even a question that they need more detachments??
what else are they hoping to put in the other detachements
??
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 07 2018 19:47
Craftworlds and Ynnari
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 07 2018 19:47
ah, Aeldari Queso
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 07 2018 19:47
exactly
"here's a cool benefit for running a mixed faction DE army" ~ DE codex
"i want it with no drawbacks!" ~ eldar soup players
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 07 2018 19:52
argh... because it's not like the DE codex (as far as I can see so far) has some wicked (pun intended) combos already or anything... I don't think you really need help from the Aeldari, OR the Ynnari...
fluffy Ynnari would be Ynnari Sup Com of the 3 x HQ's, Aeldari wraiths & guardians, DE Wyches led by Lelith
3 x detachments done
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 07 2018 19:55
yeah, i was pointing out the same thing to them. you can get way more CP very easily by just running bigger detachments, or you can give up the benefits of having all three sub-factions in your army. you dont get to have your cake and eat it
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 07 2018 19:55
nods enthusiastically
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 07 2018 22:49
did we ought to put up an announcement about the chop to the Ynnari CAT??
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 07 2018 22:57
You think anybody’s actually going to read that?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 07 2018 23:27
I did
Weeks ago
With a save your lists warning
At: /r/eldar , dakka tactics threads, 40k online army sections
Might be why there haven't been any bugreps yet
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 07 2018 23:39
@WindstormSCR are all those bugreps correct?

@Kohato you got 2 more dum-dums to shut down lol
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 07 2018 23:40
and the mixed detach is a logic switch that isn't functioning how it should for some strange reason
WindstormSCR
