@/all, on #3335, I don't believe it's currently possible to implement cross-catalogue Warlords? Hopefully this will be possible once 2.02 is released.

@Mad-Spy isn't the method to select the FW detatch as parent first , then add the GW in ?

the order shouldnt matter anymore
i had some ideas on how to implement warlord in the FWAA. it's a nasty hack, but i'm pretty sure it'll work until 2.02

Probably not worth the effort, but depends how nasty and/or complicated.

yeah, I think we just wait until 2.02 when we can import the units and add the chapter-specific Warlord entry .

weird, just tested on droid ... FW Battalion parent and DW child battalion .. lets me select the primaris capt. as WL but not the Ven dread... even imports the SIA options and the right name for the extra relics strat

there are NO Warlord entries on any valid CHARACTERS in the FWAA cat.
Given each cat has it's own Warlord SSE, it would mean hacking in multiple links to IDs that only exist in the other catalogues (at least, that's how i think it would have to work..)

that'd be why then eh
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Aug 07 2018 09:15
which is incredibly dodgy.
ok, I'm going to close #3335 as unworkable for now.

it's relatively little effort to make it work, it just uses a bad practice

Wait
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Aug 07 2018 09:20
yeah I see how that would go ... putting links or calls into another cat that might be changed in the future, breaking the link and leaving you scratching your head as to why

There's a SSE in gst "Warlord"
isn't that supposed to be the token for the selection?
OR maybe we could switch over all the old stuff to validate on a new Warlord category!
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Aug 07 2018 09:21
It's more linking in things like chapter-specific traits etc.
Putting in a "Warlord" selection is relatively trivial

Aug 07 2018 09:22
... I might be lost as to where is the actual issue.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 07 2018 09:22
we already validate on the Warlord category
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Aug 07 2018 09:22
They want to have a FWAA unit as their Warlord.
If we implement it "properly", we should make it link to chapter-specific traits and Relics, which is not easily possible at present.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 07 2018 09:23
arent all of the characters named anyway?
i.e. no need for relics?
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Aug 07 2018 09:24
this one is just a venerable chaplain dread
should have relic access
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 07 2018 09:24
oh, right. that's a thing
fine, he gets the armour indomidus then

Yeah, so does the Land Raider Excelsior! :smile:

I want my Rhino to have a Jump pack !
and ignore overwatch
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 07 2018 09:27
you need to have a jump pack already to take that ;)

damn you @GenWilhelm crushing my dreams!
Fine.. The Beacon Angelis ... I want teleporting rhinos and dreads
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Aug 07 2018 09:33
or a dread trying to finger through the "Tome of Ectoclades" .... flip flip flip ... "aha hah .. it was in the indices all along!"

thoughts?

Aug 07 2018 09:56
I don't love it, and you'll have to duplicate the Relics list to give any to the Dread.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 07 2018 09:56
yeah, duplicating relics and warlord traits will be annoying
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Aug 07 2018 09:58
that's why I suggest we just leave it for now. Hopefully 2.02 will be along relatively soon and (once we do a massive rewrite) will solve a number of issue.s
