Hmmm
I have 6 Allarus models now. What to do, what to do....
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:27
Axe people the golden question
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:33
Axe me no questions
lol
I'm thinking a small gaggle of axe-dudes and a Vexilla for that sweet Allarus Bomb action
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:34
make sure to make one a vexilus praetor
otherwise it doesn't work
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:34
Right.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:35
because praetorian plate
so the other 5 should be one standard squad
then you just need a biker capt to stooping dive successfully to trigger
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 00:35
those Allarus are so pricey
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:36
Yes. Yes they are.
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 00:36
I mean in the grand scheme of mini's 20 bucks per isn't terrible, but I'm sure that 3 won't cut it on the battlefield
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:37
Well I have 6 unopened now
Well fuckses
Can't do it
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:38
?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:38
The Vexilla is one Elite, the Allarus are another
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:38
yeah
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:38
Thumbs down
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:38
just make a vanguard
get one standard warden or whatever to make your guardsman morale immune with a 5++
decent value to fill out the last vanguard slot
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:39
Oh right that'll do it
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:39
and a vanguard still has 2 HQ slots for custodes bikers
just remember the terminator vex needs the "i TP to my buddy" plate for it to work
because you stooping dive > plate > combat > your turn begins > rest come in via vex TP homer strat
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 00:42
did you guys see the AoS Nighthaunts focus that dropped today?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:42
YEOWTCH
866 points
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:43
yeah, and at least 6 CP+ to make the bomb work
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 15 2018 00:43
@CrusherJoe want more bikes? Lol
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:45
...maybe lol
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 00:45
I miss the good old days when you could just charge and kill shit
don't need crazy combos to win games
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:46
that exists, that's basically what clowns are
or DE wych cults
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 00:46
filthy xenos
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:46
mostly because terminators and bikes and VVs overpay for what they are
deathwatch can do decent melee squads that aren't super-crazy-expensive, but still nothing compared to knifears or bugs
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 00:47
At least Helbrecht can make TDA decent
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:48
I miss the good old days of S10 TH/SS TWC
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:48
what's he do again?
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 00:48
Fuck TWC lol
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:48
Causing ID with every hit
NOPE
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 00:48
re-roll all hits, +1 S
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:48
MAKE THUNDERWOLVES GREAT AGAIN
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:48
I have 3 TWC models painted as deathwatch :D
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 00:48
which makes the TH guys S10
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:48
sometimes run them as an aux support
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:49
I have 21 TWC
All loaded up with PF and TH with SS
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 00:49
TWC where so broken
*were
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 00:49
I did one HTH/DWshield, the other is relic blade/bolter, and the last is shield/axe
the DW stormshields look like proper cavalry shields
and the HTH is fittingly imposing
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 15 2018 00:50
@CrusherJoe pm me on FB lol
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:51
Huh
-1 to hit or +1 attacks
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 00:53
That's what's up
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 04:07
Is there a way to re-roll wounds for Allarus Axe-boys?
tekton
@tekton
May 15 2018 04:37
I've actually won 4 games in a row with this list, I'm pretty sure people just aren't expecting it (because who brings Grey Knights anymore?!) http://pyroturtle.com/assets/rosters/gk_guard_shield_captains.html
Sadly my AdMech/GK force just couldn't quite get it done, apparently two horrible armies don't make a good one
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 15 2018 05:28
@tekton looks soupy...!
@WindstormSCR, go ahead, if you're still up, I'll not fiddle with the CAT until you've finished, I don't think there's much fiddling to do anyway :smile:

GW just posted the Masque Forms for Harlequins.
With the Veiled Path they talk about Riddlesmiths making you harder to hit in cc, sounds like a new unit or character perhaps?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 15 2018 09:36
riddle-smiths is the name of the form for that masque
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
May 15 2018 09:40
Doh!
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

#3077 wow ... Codex Harlequins is -5 days old. How have we not gotten a ticket before that /s
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 15 2018 12:58
its crazy, right?
CloverFox
@CloverFox
May 15 2018 13:57
I think they were just trying to be helpfull
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 14:19
@/all I'll have the latest bug fixes for DW ready to go for later today
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 14:26
Just give me a shout and I'll merge/release
@acebaur I'm pretty sure #3079 is just being silly and trying to take a vet list item and a xenophase or relic blade
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 14:31
No I looked at it and the captain wasn't set up right, it wasn't forcing you to take 2 weapons for one thing and it also was validating wrong on the chainsword options
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 14:35
Worked fine when i tested it. The options go to max 0 if you take anything on the vet list
the missing peice that i can think of is making the vet list an explicit max2 if you select at least one item there
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 14:36
Ok I'll look at it again at lunch
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 17:05
bug fixes have been pushed to the DW branch

@R42H
May 15 2018 18:00
The new harlequins rules look amazing!
wow
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 19:19
Nothing posted today, I was hoping for WLTs or relics info
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 15 2018 19:28
@acebaur MC Boltgun is 5 pts, not 3pts per the current file
do you want an issue? shall I fix it myself?? Or will you just update it now I've mentioned it here???
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 19:54
I'll just update it when I get home tonight, unless you want it done before then
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 15 2018 19:59
nah, is OK, I'll let you handle it :smile:
Alex Baur
@acebaur

WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 20:45
@acebaur looking at those commit diffs you didn't pull origin
check inceptors, librarian points, and any of the other bugs I closed, you may have overwritten previous fixes
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 15 2018 20:46
yeah, sorry, I'm a maverick and I just straight up merged the PR...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 20:47
Checking now
also version was not incremented
looks like we dodged a bullet and the XML didn't explode itself
but @acebaur please increment version number, and do a commit with the file moved to v26
this could have ended very badly
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 20:53
Actually
better way
I'm going to nuke the branch and re-create, so it is rebased and we don't have potential XML conflicts
There we go
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 20:58
@acebaur use deathwatch codex 2 branch, shoukd prevent future XML implosion
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 15 2018 20:59
beautiful
that makes me glad I didn't do any work on it too
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 21:04
Whoops, my bad I thought I fetched it before I worked on it
I'll update to v26 tonight
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 21:07
Its done
just use the new branch
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 21:08
Cool, sorry about that
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 21:08
Its just the problem with current BS data structure
more granularity in the files or a more standardized xml structure and we wouldn't hve the issues
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 21:10
Throw Our Heads Back and Laugh.gif
Sorry...that's my reaction every time the word "standardized", "xml" and "structure" are in together in a sentence, especially where BS is concerned LOL
tekton
@tekton
May 15 2018 21:12
I get a weird twitch seeing those things together
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 15 2018 21:31
It's kinda like dividing by zero
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 22:51
Yeah
thus the json project
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 23:44
so after the umpteenth report on inceptors I downloaded the cat on my phone, it is showing V25 even though when I use the desktop app and pull from the master it says v26
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 23:45
yes
because your phone pulls from release
your desktop now pulls from the raw files
for it to go "live" a release needs to be drafted
then it takes about ~4 hours for appspot to pick it up
so your phone is just pulling the v1.1.40 general release
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 23:48
Ah ok, how does one solve that?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 23:49
once you're done editing on the branch, submit a PR to master from the branch and then once that's merged we do a release
only a few of us can actually do it
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 23:51
Yeah I meant is there a way to make mobile devices pull without having to wait for appspot?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 15 2018 23:51
Android? Yes x2
Ios yes x1
Dropbox
Or manual loading of files.
Android you can file browse and overwrite files. Ios can too with Cyano
Both can do dropbox
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 23:54
:+1:
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 23:55
Just let me know when you're done editing and I'll merge and release the DW stuff
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 23:56
I don't have any uncommited changes
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 23:56
alright then, off we go
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 23:56
unless something needs to be done from earlier when the xml nearly exploded
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 23:56
nah, I double-checked all my fixes
it was only the watch-captain that got overwritten
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 23:57
oh let me take a quick look at him then
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 15 2018 23:57
he's fine as you did him
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 15 2018 23:57
yeah, he's good
he had a validation error earlier that allowed you to only select 1 weapon from the equipment list
