A friend of mine told me maggotkin is not on battlescribe... I don't know what he means exactly, I know this is AoS, but is the maggotkin data there or not...? I checked the datafile and I can't see the wood for the trees...!

They're not done yet. I think we're about a week or so away from release of the reworked data files for everyone.
If your friend wants a preview, tell him to do the AoS v2.0 branch from the repo.

#2960 - i cant win can i?
what's our general opinion on supporting wargear combinations that are legal but have no benefit?

@GenWilhelm I believe, the standard response is to hit someone upside the head with the BRB

I mean if it’s possible to do we should support it

if someone wants to spend an extra 20pts for no reason, who are we to stop them?

it's like ... putting spinning rims on your car and three spoilers .... I mean, you could do it ... but for the love of all that is heretical .. "Whhyyy?!"
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 26 2018 12:46
yeah, the third spoiler is a little much

you think these eternal optimists are just living for the day GW FAQ it to say "models with 17.5 boneswords get an extra attack, but only on the second sabbath of the ides of March"

not sure why you've said it's not a typo?
because it definitely doesn't match what's in the book...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 26 2018 14:09
the faq changed it to what it is in the file
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Apr 26 2018 14:09
ah, I see
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 26 2018 14:09
because the codex version causes weirdness within units
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Apr 26 2018 14:10
maybe update the comment to point that out then? Your comment makes it seem a bit like you're straight up dismissing the issue.

Also, as an easter egg, the image is a link to the FAQ ;)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 26 2018 14:24
didnt even look for that :D
maybe its more obvious in the email notification
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 26 2018 14:25
Only in the appended email attached to BCB’s response
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Apr 26 2018 14:26
Easter eggs aren't supposed to be obvious ;D

So, I'm looking at Agents of Vect and one of the GW guys at Warhammer World said you "can't Vect Vect" since there's no concept of a running chain in 40k...but the wording makes it seem like you could...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 26 2018 15:49
Lol #2960
Agents of Vect?
Is that the Rule for hq free assassins?
oh nvm
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 26 2018 15:50
No that's Satan's Strategem LOL
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 26 2018 15:50
Why would you not be able to?
Other than GW guys said no at WHW
There doesn't even have to be a running chain ... conditions were fulfilled.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 26 2018 15:51
Actually you can raw, the GW guys as usual have no understanding of the implications of the wordings they write
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 26 2018 15:51
That's what I mean, it's not even unclear
that's pretty cut and dry
that Vect can be Vect'ed
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 26 2018 15:53
someone really needs to go mash them face first into the Mtg ruleset and point out that its not perfect either but its a damn sight better because of attempts to be clear and concise
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 26 2018 15:53
Also @GenWilhelm I'm willing to lay down money that #2960 is due to people not understanding that 8th is not 7th.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 26 2018 15:53
Or people just wanting to wysiwyg models they built during 7th or for SWA
shadow war had huge benefits to multi-melee
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 26 2018 15:54
SW?
Or armageddon
Forgot that existed
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 26 2018 15:55
i mean yeah, if you want to pay the tax for playing wysiwyg, we should support that. its just >90% of players arent going to do that, so they have to put up with spinners instead of checkboxes because taking multiples is a legal loadout
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 26 2018 15:55
is it sub optimal sure, but there are people who will wysiwyg old rule of cool models if thats what they have
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 26 2018 15:56
So glad admech and necrons don't deal with that shite.
Also. I really really want IK to come out next
I want that damned baby titan
Finally got rid of all my tau, down to a manageable 3 armies.
Plus sylvaneth I never get to play with :(
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 26 2018 15:58
hell, the codex doesnt specify how many swords you need for one "set" of boneswords, so you could purchase "boneswords" for your 4 arms and say the feet are rending claws, so youre still within acceptable wysiwyg

Ugh fluffing up my resume because I’m applying for manager of the new WH store opening up in my area

good luck!

Apr 26 2018 16:39
@Kohato Well ... at least we're almost at release state for the AoS Battlescribe files ... and Sylvaneth are part of that. (BTW: The Idoneth Deepkin have a formation with Sylvaneth in them .... some 'Wood and Sea' battalion ... )
@alphalas Nice! We had a guy just go through the hiring process locally and get the manager position at one of the local stores. (He said there are like 3 interviews?)
@amis92 The 'stealth easter-egg' on #2958 was pretty awesome ...
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 26 2018 16:56
Yeah I got a pretty solid “hire me because I’m awesome!” letter written, now it’s just getting the resume fluffed up to support-.-
