Really good review
I think I'm back in
Damn it
I don't know what I'm going to do. Titanicus is supposed to drop end of August and it's been said it's going to be an expensive box

@CrusherJoe well, you know it’s going to happen, so just accept it and plan accordingly ;)
With Kill Team this weekend I really want to figure out how to do “Infested Terran” looking genestealers...

depends if you want the terrain, the base box with just the knigts/rules is the same as a starter box (well, i guess expensive is relative)

Yeah, I'm not really bothered about Titanicus, I had the original and it was... OK... But I'm not really too fussed
Kill Team is another story mind...!

@FarseerVeraenthis I’ve dropped a bug report for @Jonskichov regarding the missing “saved/incremented” notification BattleScribe/Release#21

thanks for that :smile:
I added that it is validated for windows as well
also, now the Kill Team website is up we can see that Grey Knights JUST get Grey Knights
1k sons get Rubric Marines and Tzzangors

as in strike teams, as opposed to terminators?

Death Guard = Plague Marines & Pox Walkers

waits for the upload
oh there it is cheeky little thing!

oh, yah, and now I read the rest of it... they also have Nemesis force weapons and can use "their psychic might" as well
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jul 19 2018 15:23
so everyone is basically just getting their troops choices, except no GK termies and SM get reivers?

https://warhammer40000.com/kill-team/ <-- this is the flashy new website
doesn't work on IE (surprise!!) but you can see all the factions and all the choices for those factions
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jul 19 2018 15:30
looks like more starter set options as well
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jul 19 2018 15:31
you mean a full set that isnt gsc v skit, or just that theyre selling all the parts separately?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jul 19 2018 15:31
"Drop Force Imperator" - Astra Militarum and "The Writhing Shadow" - Tyranids = 8 x Genestealers
as in, like the Space Marine and Ork starter sets
so a Kil Team with some terrain and extra gubbin's

Aaaaand GK are useless on everything! Hey, at least there’s a level of consistency here

maybe psychic will be really strong in KT?
there's still hope

this is literally SWA with a new coat of paint and some slightly modified rules
I was right all along
it's seriously going to disappoint some folks for the same reason SWA did
and even more brutal on weaker KTs like guard/skitarii because of how much easier it is to OOA models
my picks for top 3: Tyranids, Harlequins, DW
because fast and multiwound, with good weapons
trying not to be pessimistic, but I watched the "how to play" video with my SW:A book handy and a bunch of shit is exactly the same
Simon Porter

I've not played SW:A what is wrong with it??

It's rather boring for many armies. factions
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 19 2018 18:21
Well ... at least we have (quasi) 8th edition rules for SW:A? And for some factions it's as cheap as picking up a box (or two) of figures.
@amis92 Hey, I could run an entire Tzaangor force ... that's kinda cool.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Jul 19 2018 18:23
Maybe I never learned how to approach it, but using GKs, Necrons and Tau, I've lost ~~10 games and gave up.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jul 19 2018 18:23
@FarseerVeraenthis you know a lot of the infantry vs infantry issues that exist in 8th? amplify them by about 4x
@amis92 nope, that's most people's impressions, if you're not playing harlequins, nids you can't compete, maybe add vanilla SM and DW to that list because of intercessors being multiwound
especially DW if SIA is as it is in 8th
reivers with bolt carbines will rape most armies
possibly even tyranid warriors
good luck to anyone else other than admech

Righto, perhaps I'll hold fire on getting involved from the off...

Jul 19 2018 18:31
i still want all the terrain :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jul 19 2018 18:31
I mean, I have plenty of dudes, so it would only be the rulebook really
Yeah, it's the draw of "an incredible deal"
I mean, I love the idea of having all the gear, but reality suggests I don't have space for it
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 19 2018 18:33
@FarseerVeraenthis Reality is just a crutch for those who can't handle Fantasy. If you believe you have the space for it, and clap your hands three times ... you'll magically have enough space ... or something ...

it's part of why i bought a house, to have room for hobby things

So, buyer beware ahead
I ordered some heads from statuesque minis a month ago
(Literally a month ago, not being facetious(
So a week ago I emailed them asking what’s going on because I hadn’t gotten them yet
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jul 19 2018 18:56
just looking forward to skrag and making some cataphractii DW terminators :)
any idea when that'll be in?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jul 19 2018 18:57
Mind, I had gotten an email from them saying the heads were posted and to expect them within 2 weeks
So like I said, I emailed- dude legit told me he can’t do anything for me until 30 days had elapsed.
That is TERRIBLE customer service
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jul 19 2018 19:26
well, they're probably really expensive aren't they, so they need to be REALLY certain they're lost in the post
there are too many "they"'s in that sentence
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jul 19 2018 19:28
Sure sure
But then have tracking – there was no tracking on the shipment to begin with
If you’re going to be so worried about not losing money to customers have tracking on the package is that you can be like OK I see it dropped off the face of the earth somewhere between great British mail and US Postal Service
He’s the only thing I’ve ever ordered from the UK that didn’t come with tracking built-in – and that’s saying something
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jul 19 2018 19:30
but, the post is very reliable, things never go missing, tracking is not needed
customers respect the cheaper goods
:tongue:
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 19 2018 19:35
@alphalas It's stuck in customs. Probably due to contraband heads, that aren't GW ...
They know you're using them for "secret projekts" that could undermine the stability of the game. And this is the best way to keep the game on the straight and narrow.
I actually had a Bloodsecrator go missing between the UK and USA....
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jul 19 2018 19:46
@OftKilted that’s the ironic bit - a “replacement bit” I ordered from my “friend in China” for my sicaran (which I ordered 2 weeks ago mind, 2 weeks after I ordered the heads) got here today too
