@acebaur since you're the man with the epub magic, a proposal
as soon as you get it I can run through and sort out the selection logic/points, then commit the brnach and leave the profile/points pass for you if you want

morning boyos
looks like a fun discussion, whats wrong with CWE??
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 11 2018 07:53
ah, yes, I see now... In CWE CAT you're forced to take a craftworld attribute
yup, so, if you have units with different CRAFTWORLD keywords then you don't get an attribute, but yes, you could pick a SAIM-HANN warlord in a detachment full of ULTHWE Guardians and still have access to the SAIM-HANN Warlord trait and Relics...

although, from a Craftworlds perspective I don't know how that would be sensible, although that would give you some different combinations of stratagems I suppose. It's not fluffy, therefore, we can implement it but it doesn't make me happy

is it me, or does this seem pretty cheap with twin Lascannon arrays: https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/resources/PDF/Downloads/40k-Adeptus-Custodes-Telemon-2018.pdf
although, the Iliastus sounds pretty vicious and is even cheaper

@GenWilhelm I think that’s FW wanting to not import adrathic Weapons to 40k for some reason

custode stealing tau tech confirmed
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 11 2018 09:45
Eh adrathic stuff is older the the tau are
Ah it’s not even adrathic
It’s just they called it a plasma PROJECTOR in 30k

I'll get that hammered in today

May 11 2018 13:13
@WindstormSCR I'll let you know if I need help, thanks!

@acebaur worth figuring out now, can you commit changes to the deathwatch branch?
I know not everyone here has the right permissions for that
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 11 2018 13:17
I can't publish it, but I I have made changes before to the file
Publish as in merge it with the main
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 11 2018 13:17
I mean the existing branch I have made
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 11 2018 13:18
branches are a free-for-all - its only master that is protected
@acebaur that branch has the primaris logic and a few of the other changes in, just needs the vehicle SB costs fixing with a modifier
if you can commit changes to that then we're all good
if not I'll PRto master so you can fork :/

So 186 lines of discussion and no decision LOL
Oh, wait -- I already mentioned my decision
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 11 2018 15:15
@CrusherJoe implement it
@WindstormSCR didn’t realize it’s something we’re in the process of implementing
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe arches an eyebrow
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 11 2018 15:17
I'm still not in favor, but apparently all cats but CWE work that way, so might as well do it for uniform behavior

But in the case of allowing all WT and Relics as possible selections in multi-sub-faction detachments, Necrons currently allow it and Amis has stated he wants to do it to tau the next time he works on it

I think I've already done this. Plasma accelerator rifle is Bork'an-only, Dynamic mirror field is Dal'yth only.

"when we're wrong, at least we're consistent"
Except that we're right ... because it is perfectly legal.
But, you know ... :smile:
@amis92 I hadn't checked, I just remember you posting on an early tau bug that you'd be doing that.
How long for the first bugrep requesting that new dread?

a new dreadnought to buy after i finish my leviathan it looks like...i shouldn't have clicked on the link...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 11 2018 16:59
gotta love it when the fixes are simple:
@acebaur I've made my last commit to the branch, all yours
so let me know if you need to fork because you can't commit direct to branch

May 11 2018 17:25
lol
double culverin anti-tank telemon is the cheapest version
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 11 2018 17:26
Yeah I’m seriously tempted to pick one up lol
Just get 2 of each arm and be done with it
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 11 2018 17:35
and the Telemon is now in master
enjoy
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 11 2018 18:31
Well it’s a classic pair of bug reps –
Haven’t seen those complaints in a while
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 11 2018 18:48
lol
please, please do this because i have no idea what i'm talking about.

I mean, once we get cat inheritance we won't get these anymore, simply because we'll be able to have the different cats inherit their FW parts
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 11 2018 18:54
So...I would argue that the faction-specific relics are only available to characters/models/whatever of a...well...specific faction (hence the name)
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 11 2018 18:55
That is correct.
That's why that requirement is stated on each such relic.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 11 2018 18:55
I'm not 100% sure but I don't think you choose Regiment on anything but a detachment level
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 11 2018 18:55
also correct with current implementation
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 11 2018 18:55
Incorrect. When you take a model with <Regiment> at the time of army creation, you replace <Regiment> with the chosen regiment.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 11 2018 18:55
Hmmm...okay nope that's incorrect, you can mix Regiments
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 11 2018 18:55
Yepper
Makes things fun
Would you ever do it? I don't see why, fluff wise or crunch wise.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 11 2018 18:56
No, it makes things stupid since you lose Regimental Doctrines
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 11 2018 18:56
But you can
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 11 2018 18:56
I meant in our current files the only flags we have for faction are at the detachment/force leve
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 11 2018 18:56
Which is the ONLY reason to have regiments in the first damned place
But again, whatever. I'll work on implementing it at some point
Perhaps when @alphalas finally gives me AM LOLOLOLOLOL
