They also didn't allow the new Knights book so any chance of them showing was blown out by that

Also the FW knights are really kinda screwed right now, aren't they?

Yep. They’re limited to half the houses
Or free blade
Give no cp to a detachment
And half the strats don’t work on them

ok
the knight mission in I:martyr is really fun
like "so this is why they're so feared" fun

@WindstormSCR have you played “Freeblade” at all? It’s actually pretty well done as just a side random thing, has that similar vibe to “oh, yeah, they’re awesome”
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 18 2018 04:39
So it would appear my knight plans have been all wrong
For your consideration:
House Terryn, Gallant with Landstrider and Love Glove, backed with a Valiant with Ion Bulwark and Traitor's Pyre, and a Warden thrown in to complete the Triumvirate of Choppy, Flamey, Chokey, Shooty doom

Jun 18 2018 04:48
Turn 1: Gallant move, advance 2d6 discard lowest +2" -> Full Tilt -> Charge 3d6 discard lowest +2" -> Total MDK, pile in to new target -> Glory in Honour! -> fight again, MDK, pile into single model unit (vehicle, monster, character preferred) -> Death Grip -> three things dead in turn one.
All this while the Valiant arrives and fires up the BBQ pit and goes full Capt. Ahab, the Warden Avengers infantry or other target. Turn two Valiant charges in with the Warden for a chainsword/stomp fest following the trail of devastation made by the Gallant.

For maximum cheese, take BA battalion with 2 captain smashfuckers and 3xScouts + Guard CP battalion
It's disgusting. I love it.

One slamgunius with the relic hammer one with the relic jump pack?
Because if you’re not running one with either you’re doing slamguinius wrong

I find folks that cling to "Their guys" cheese .. literally have little competitive options, in a meta where there is a lot of it around
For example, I play in a strong (Guilliman gunline, multiple DP psyker heavy smite bomb, triptide, etc.) local group and as Necrons, I cling to my destroyers and deceiver bomb like my life depends on it .. I'm not running out and buying 3 Tesseract vaults ... but if I had them to hand .. I'd have to consider them a must take a lot of the time
Not because I like cheese ... but I do like to be able to win a game once in a while

yeah, i've noticed that a lot as well @sk_Father_Price_twitter. Craftworlds players (for example) are quite happy to talk about the many good things in their codex because they can be competitive without using some of them. but you talk to anyone who doesnt have a "top tier" codex and they get very defensive over their one or two relatively strong units (see: index tau trying to defend drones and commander spam)

oh, we're still talking about vect?
what if, instead of the 2+ roll, it was a roll-off where you each add your highest Ld

@WindstormSCR who keeps requesting Apothecary and Techmarine for Deathwatch? There is the Primaris Apothecary, but otherwise they've never been able to take either... As such, leave it out of the CAT, as suggested. Of course, if there is a way of doing it for yourself that is invisible to the wider users then, I can't see why not, but... Deathwatch =/= normal space marine chapter so............. Personally, I'd rather use the units as provided in the Codex

@DrTobogganMD
Jun 18 2018 16:02
Well that commit description is wrong.
It should be "Allow Freeblades [...]" not Allow Knights
Relic Validation for the knights is approaching SM levels. I think it's all accounted for now though

It's all just a cosmetic change ... druid is still druid ...
But after staring at a bear butt for 15 years
I now can stare at a dino butt

with the same shitty engine from 2002?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 18 2018 17:40
Hard to say?
Basic action bar rpg hasn't changed.
but they've overhauled the engine a couple of times now
So ... like Unreal 2>3 rather than Unreal 2 > Frostbyte

@Thairne not so much dead, more like a polymorphic unicorn! The change to make the texture files streaming was a huge change to the core, and then adding support for higher vertex counts on models was a large change to the rendering engine. So some of it may be a bit legacy, but if the C compiler can revert to FORTRAN I think it's ok for the WoW engine to use some old triggers ;)
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jun 18 2018 18:42
Fortran? Are you kidding me?
my da was 5 years old when fortran started to exist...
