DW FAQ done
Terminator watch captains are now 75% more awesome
Alex Baur

May 31 2018 01:18
What did they change?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 01:21
remember the derpy relic blade/stormshield issue?
they fixed it
Alex Baur
@acebaur
May 31 2018 01:21
Nice
Which was never an actual issue because of index BS

– Watch Captain in Terminator Armour,
Wargear Options
Change the first bullet point to read:
‘• This model may replace its storm bolter with a
lightning claw, storm shield, thunder hammer or one
item from the
Terminator Combi-weapons
l i st .’
Change the second bullet point to read:
‘• This model may replace its relic blade with a lightning
claw, storm shield or one item from the
Terminator
Melee Weapons
l i st .’
so basically any valid terminator loadout that isn't heavy
relic blade/SS or TH/SS, combi/LC, double LC
which is really nice considering terminator watch caps are the way to go, just for the ability to drop them exactly where they're needed, or make a nasty beatstick
I'll be using my BaC cata cap as one. combi-melta/LC
What I’ve been working on
Sad part is I’ve also ordered 3 dickbikes, both special contemptors, a telemon, and 1 pack each of the special spears
-.-

Didn’t bother with coronus because holy fuck they’re expensive or Pallas because they’re probably going to be not great
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 01:35
along with a contemptor (superior IF legion version for maximum purity/heraldry) and some mk 3 power weapons
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2018 01:35
Expensive as in points and dineros
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 01:36
gearing them as magnetized but primarily contemptor mortis
same with the mk IIIs, but I want some TH/Bolter dw vets
and I love the brutality of the mk III for that, along with the hammer design
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 03:15
one thing I think I'll be doing is avoiding the mk VII/VIII helm design fro any future DW vets
using just III or IV

@WindstormSCR that’s a nice set of stuff to get put together
@WindstormSCR I got some deathwatch games in with my “assault Primaris” and dual Repulsor list...it was surprisingly effective and mobile
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2018 03:22
@tekton same idea as my BA primaris?
All the Assault Weapons and Never Not Be Advancing?
tekton
@tekton
May 31 2018 03:47
@alphalas similar; 2 Groups of 5 Intercessor with Assault Bolt, Flamer Aggressor, Bolter Reiver - they don't always advance but they can just move around the battle field getting objectives likes no ones business

@WindstormSCR glad to have you back! The mirrostave gave me grief, it seemed to work when I was testing it but colour me totally unsurprised that it's not working properly....! And literally the only reason that CAT was out on time is because of all the effort you put in on the bones, so, cuddles all round :tongue:

@FarseerVeraenthis I'll fix it this morning
the DW FAQ was surprisingly light
I was expecting the answer to the much argued "can I rapid fire vengeance rounds when I drop in"
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 12:48
"rapid fire vengeance rounds" as in being within 9" of the target and "drop in" as in being set up more than 9" away?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 12:50
yeah, people still try and get away with that at the local
despite multiple comments
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 12:50
How does that need a FAQ?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 12:50
because people are dumb
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 12:50
Within 9" and more than 9" Are different.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 12:50
they are in fact opposites

@WindstormSCR if you're in the CAT's, you could also fix the DW hellblasters - currently when you select a squad you only get one, when the minimum is 5... All the other squads work out OK but I was fiddling with lists and hellblasters don't work properly :+1:

"GW, I need a faq - If I win the roll for turn 1, does my opponent actually get turn 1?"
You make jokes....
...but the concept isn't far from reality with some players
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 13:41
Are the SM traits and harlequin branches done?
if so I'll axe those
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 13:50
@FarseerVeraenthis the issue was that the hide conditional was targeting a link in a list, not the item
odd, but it works now
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 13:56
anyone have a clowns epub?
just so I can go through and double-check things since I'm responsible for them

#3194 is silly
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 14:01
There should be a FAQ for that

WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 14:01
please no
I like having autarchs that work
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 14:01
Index Autarch Options: Take 2 pieces of Autarch Wargear.
How is that so hard to understand
Not replace
Take.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 14:01
for on the battlefield, he is "my dude"
I guess that's why I like DW so much
for they are inherently codex: your dudes
in ways regular SM can never quite match

WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 14:07
get a DA power glaive and mag it
if you want to go the extra mile snip off a wraithblade sword and replace the blade
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 31 2018 14:08
That's why I like Deathwatch too :+1:

Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2018 14:33
Going to go invoke the @Jonskichov at Twitter about the child points bug
Anything else we need him for?
Oh yeah the child warlord bug too
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 14:36
child warlord bug?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 14:37
oh is that the one where you have two constraints doing the same thing, but they take different precedence depending on if theyre in a child or parent detachment?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2018 14:38
The guard bug that you’ve been fixing that shouldn’t need fixed
Yeah that one @GenWilhelm
Tweet is live; retweet for effect y’all lol
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 14:38
why not just remove the fixed constraint, so you only have the modified one doing work?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2018 14:41
@GenWilhelm is that how you’ve been fixing it for @CrusherJoe and I? I don’t remember currently lol
Will Pattison

Is BattleScribe/Release#11 a good explanation of the Child force point incrementing issue?

I think so yes
@Kohato ?

May 31 2018 16:11
yeah, trying to decide which out of that, -1 to hit, and 4++ are best
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 16:11
I kind of think that, or -1 over 4++ ion shield.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 16:11
but rotate ion shields :P
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 16:12
Lol ... relic to give a knight obsec.
Fuck your horde, this is my objective.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 16:12
how big is a knight's base?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 16:12
120mm oval?
I believe?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 16:13
is it larger than a 6" circle? :D
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 16:13
Oh, umm
Lengthwise i think?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 16:13
if it is, then you can just stand on it and you opponent cant physically get within 3" of it :smile:
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 16:13
Sorry no
170mm oval
170x106mm is what it is
roughly 6inx4in for us heathens.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 16:14
ah, so not quite big enough
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 16:15
But, 2 knights
side by side
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 16:15
lmao
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2018 16:15
on top of one

May 31 2018 16:15
6x8 wall of pure fuck you
good god.
22 heirlooms
I want this codex now
oh awesome. Tables for building freeblades and forgoing household benefits.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2018 16:20
those burdens look hilarious
you must declare a charge against every enemy unit within 12"

And as soon as we get Rules for renegade knight houses and true chaos knights I’ll be pleased .... yessssss ....

May 31 2018 16:22
No Renegade/Chaos knights in this codex :/
Sorry
Imagine tyranids against a knight with that burden

my wraithknight is now very sad
but my IK is gleefully awaiting the codex and an updated paintjob to go with deathwatch :D
best part is since it's all magnetized adding the new gun from the new knight kit should be easy from an ebay bitz seller

@WindstormSCR
May 31 2018 18:10
Still don't know if I'd use it often
because the primary thing deathwatch don't have much of and need is solid anti-tank
low-med str multi-damage decent AP is around in spades
