see my last comment
because I'm pretty sure they don't allow personal projects on company time, and you won't want to do hobby after 7 hours a day of stuff :P

The managers at all the local stores here work on painting their armies while people play
but i think two of them have yet to play a game of 8th edition at this point...

old manager used to get a game or two in on quiet days, as "advanced learning" games
had to walk away often though, so there is some patience required of the opponent
we're starting up an escalation league here next month
should be fun
26 power to start, then ramping up over 6 weeks
two week intervals

I mean. I don’t work gw and still the last thing I want to do after work is play a game of 40k. That’s reserved for weekend :p
And if he gets the job we have an inside source. And a competent manager to teach the game with proper rules.
Rather than whoever taught kids on dakka.

Imagine him doing BattleScribe datafiles on a less-busy day. It'd be actually the first time GW pays one of us to do the work ;D

#2966 it seems there was a change in how special Vanguard is handled for LotD, SoS and OA. I don't know anything about it. @GenWilhelm @alphalas @WindstormSCR someone knows what it's all about?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm

I'll take a look when I get to my pc.

@GenWilhelm its user error
can just close it. Seems from what i can tell in the mess they just want the ui decluttered and they're using the wrong detach
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 09:47
@amis92 yeah it’s user whining about BS’s limitations
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2018 10:00
before to day there was an option to say i didn't need hq in No force org slot for these detachments
this is the bit that was confusing me
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Apr 27 2018 10:05
Yep. Same for me. I didn't follow the respective discussion, but I did skim it and didn't notice there were any changes, it was the same all along...?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2018 10:08
yeah, two of the files hadnt been changed for 10 months (ie. index release), and the other had a single change with CA
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 10:09
Yeah that wasn’t a thing
I don’t know what he was smoking, must have been something good
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 10:43
He opened a thread on reddit bitching about it in the same rambling style. He opened it there so only the mods can close it.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2018 10:44
you dont really "close" reddit threads
you can delete stuff if it's spam or against the rules
and im guess it was you who reported it :D
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 10:45
I understand this. He clearly does not. Lol
Hah. It's spam
Sidebar is there for a reason, read the shit
Forgot you were a mod there lol
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2018 10:49
heh, it doesnt need much moderation to be fair. but it is nice having the flair so people can see i know what im talking about (at least i hope)

Can you please tell him every way he is wrong and to kindly sod off?
Or @Kohato

@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:19
Amis doesn’t like it when I tell people off
Also no shit at my work there’s a dude named amos. I keep wanting to call him amis
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 12:20
Well one of you two need to lol
Because I’m pretty sure if I do, it won’t be pretty

Damnit I type too slow lol
Amis beat me to it
But I spelled it out for him
So between the two of us hopefully he buzzed off
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:36
Very non assholish too
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 12:36
i kept it to the facts
i can do that
it just sucks my soul lol
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:36
Training for future management.
Because all those asanine things we get? Store regulars will bring them up too. And you'd be the go-to arbiter for that shit.
alphalas @alphalas stares at my monster god damnit, i’m gunna need a lot more of this
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Apr 27 2018 12:37
Well, I'm not planning to, but it'd be nice if someone could take my place should something happen, and right now out of 3 BSData owners I'm the only active one.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2018 12:37
i dont want to be that guy, but what he's asking for is possible. it's just impossible to validate that people are using it legally
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:38
I think we'd be able to cover in the event of your planned demise.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 12:38
which means it’s not, @GenWilhelm ;)
if we can’t make sure it’s legal, we don’t do it :P
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2018 12:39
well we also dont validate the detachment restrictions of "everyone must be the same faction"
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 12:39
but yes, you are right, it is technically doable.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:39
But we could. With a fuckton of conditionals.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 12:39
and i think i said as much in the first paragraph
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:39
On ... like everything.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2018 12:40
you mean the faction thingy, @Kohato?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:40
Amis and Jon covered the reasonin quite nicely. Balance of UX vs requirements of implementation in BS
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 12:40
but we didn’t because it’s literally damn nearly impossible to police
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:40
Aye. It'd be a bunch of conditionals on Categories.
Or shared entries . a'la HH Astartes.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2018 12:40
yeah, we'd have to do something funky like having all top-level faction keywords in the gst
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 12:41
oh god don’t bring LA into 40k
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:41
Yup. Like I said ... Possible.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 12:41
that’s a clusterfuck as it is
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:41
But ... not practical.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 12:42
@amis92 also compared to other repo maintainers (non40k i mean) you’re the least… difficult to work with
amis92 @amis92 understands the reference
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 27 2018 12:43
DDifficult? He's a damned teddy bear.
So huggable.

nohomo
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe buys Monster by the case now at Costco.
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe isn't really sure how he feels about that.
alphalas @alphalas does that at BJ’s because they have the flats of rehab.
alphalas @alphalas has both a Costco and BJ’s membership
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 27 2018 13:38
....
alphalas @alphalas can’t stand standard green or blue monster anymore
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 13:39
yes Joe?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 27 2018 13:39
I'll bet BJ's doesn't actually provide the ONE thing you'd think they'd provide, do they?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 13:39
No.
no they don’t.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 27 2018 13:39
Sad.
'cause if I were open a place of business called "BJs" you can bet your sweet ass it'd be the House of Happy Endings
...then it would probably end up like that place in From Dusk Til Dawn
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe sighs
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 27 2018 13:43
Oh well
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 13:44
yeah they just have the unfortunate circumstance of their name being Berkly and Jenson
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 14:05
But yeah my monster preferences are ultras (not white), rehabs (not orangeaide), chaos, Assault, and mango loco
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 27 2018 14:05
Ultra Violet is my favorite
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 27 2018 14:06
For me it’s sunrise or black from the ultras
Which is annoying, flats are either Rehabs (meh), ultra red white and blue (very meh) or standard/low cal (gross)

Playing a tournament-style game this weekend, would appreciate some feedback on this list before I finalise it.

main things im not sure on - is pietrov's worth it with a minimal number of conscripts? do i have enough AT (maybe swap out one of the punishers for a BC or Demo)?

Then IK in June perhaps?

@GenWilhelm tanks, tanks everywhere...seems like just enough layered fire power to be ok with no heavy weapons teams
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2018 18:06
thats the plan :D
over-saturate the enemy AT
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 27 2018 18:15
@GenWilhelm looks like a decent list
a lot of firepower there, and decent screens
though now that relic of lost cadia is 1/game its value is much reduced
consider laurels of command on a TC instead
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 27 2018 18:17
i always played it as once per game anyway :D
TC cant take laurels - they dont have voice of command

"ICON BEARER - Models in this unit can be icon bearers. [...] In addition, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of an icon bearer’s Keening Blade
Icon Bearers ... have no cost in AoS ... and no maximum limit of the number of them in a unit.
So ... add a flag to the model ... get +1 attack ...

Sure. Why not?
Call it the Iko, Iko rule
My flag boy and your flag boy, sitting by the fiiiiiire, my flag boy say to your flag boy, "I"m gonna set your flag of fire"
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Apr 27 2018 21:39
Basically this is a 'make all of your models in a unit have an Icon...' even though they aren't default modeled that way.
Last time they did something similar they had to redo the unit.
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe purges it with fire.
