Despite the I-10 being closed in El Paso I still made it to my hotel...doing 12ish hours straight of driving is more tiring than it should be
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 05:44
Oh damn man doing the drive the hard way
tekton
@tekton
Aug 16 2018 05:45
Pretty much...
I was hoping to get further today, but that freeway closure kind of took the wind out of the sails
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 05:50
Oh yeah that'll do it
Luckily the drive from El P to ATX is easy. Long....but easy
I made it just a couple of months ago

And there can be Salt Lick on the way...

@amis92, I was just working through some of the old tickets and you've done a release!
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Aug 16 2018 13:17
Oh. Don't worry, just update the release after you're done, I think the AppSpot refresh runs currently around 6AM UTC

I was going to look at the DA Lieutenant issue, but it needs either some major rework, or some fudging.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 13:20
cant you validate ancestor instance of?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Aug 16 2018 13:22
it is, but I think the nesting of the weapon choices is borking it
because it doesn't currently trigger.
the TH does that check in the GST.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 13:24
the GST one currently validates from Parent, unless you just changed that?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Aug 16 2018 13:24
ah shit, missed it. Yeah, should be able to fix it at the GST then
Iain Launchbury

There we go. 1 non-bug ticket left.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 13:50
you're a machine
and ther are 0 on the killteam repo
it's almost like we've got our sh!t together...!
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Aug 16 2018 13:51
yeah, but kill team is tiny so I'm not surprised. And the audience is small right now.

@Mad-Spy you mind implementing my request bugrep por favor?
I’ve been too damn busy to do it lately
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Aug 16 2018 14:22
you'll have to explain what it means :)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 14:26
models with voice of command have the option in battlescribe to display the orders in their selection. there's a warlord trait that can give a model voice of command (called master of command). so a character that has that warlord trait should be able to display orders, the same as characters who have VoC naturally
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 14:31
^this
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 14:33
should only apply to commissars (including yarrick) and MoO, iirc
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 14:35
Technically any AM character that doesn’t have VoC
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 14:36
not all AM characters can take the AM traits though. i know commissars can, but psykers and tech-priests cant
90% sure ministorum priests cant either
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 14:37
Ok yea you’re right
OoF isn’t regiment so yup just LComm, Comm, Yarrick, and masterOrdy
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Aug 16 2018 14:39
i'll have a look in a bit
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 14:40
yeah, come on willing volunteer, get on with it!! chip chop :tongue:
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 14:41
Only <Regiment>, MilTemp, or Prefectus can have AM wlt
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 14:41
lol, Simon. oh and while you're at it, just get SW ready for next saturady :smile:

We got half a Wulfen Dread datasheet!
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 14:42
Earl's comment about throwing people into the sun still makes me giggle
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 14:45
I love how @Kohato is such a trendsetter lol
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 14:45
HOpefully we don't get too much info for muh Wolves over the weekend as I'm gonna be up to my eyeballs in WGCX
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 14:45
We all just used our screen names, but his display name was his real name - now we all have our real names
Except for that @CrusherJoe dude - he’s a shady fuck ;)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 14:50
it's all about keeping it real
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 14:50
Beg pardon?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 14:51
I’m teasing joe lol
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 14:51
Oh no I mean...yeah...I am shady AF
But not with my datafiles LOL
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 14:59
Also, that was a falsehood
I submit as proof, fresh from Master

Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 15:00
Yeah I do have to update that
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:00
Looks like the only "shady dude" is that Alphalas guy hiding behind an alias :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

I've been on the "Information Superhighway" since before it was barely a cattle path in a pasture
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:01
well, Joe, you're the one directly associating with so-called "Alphalas"
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:01
IDGAF if someone knows who I am LOL. If I'm not already on a watch list somewhere someone isn't doing their job
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:02
also, on the topic of Space Wolf datasheets... don't forget that you will have to add in scout bikes, the Land Speeder Storm, the gunship, hunter and the stalker already
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:02
do they not already have those from the index?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:02
Yeah I'm hoping to get some work done on them this afternoon
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:03
well... I haven't checked the CAT... but the warhammer community article suggested they were new
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:03
jeez. wouldnt surprise me tbf
theyve been hyping up catas and tartaros, so i guess they probably dont
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:04
are any of the TDA variants worth it??
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:04
If by "new" you mean "here Wolves, have some crap everyone else has had since 6th" then...yeah, I suppose you could call it "new"
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:05
competitively speaking, no. theyre all way too expensive
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:05
(that's why they don't have any in pale ice blue to photograph)
righto
good job I resisted the option to grab some from Calth then
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:06
Which is true across the board for pretty much all muhreen units right now
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:06
blightlords did well recently, but theyre only a tiny bit more expensive, and about twice as survivable
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 15:06
Catas are ok in that they have iron halos instead of refractor fields
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:06
also, DG* get access to a strictly better lightning claw
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 15:07
But yeah all terms except DG terms are pretty mediocre
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:32
was just reading that :smile:
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:32
so abominants have power sledgehammers which are better in combat than thunder hammers
(no minus 1 to hit)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:32
apparently a signpost is a "Hypermorph"
it's basically on par with a HTH, isnt it?
and being basically monster sized, i imagine he's not particular impaired by it's weight
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:34
I thought all thunder hammers were -1 to hit??
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Aug 16 2018 15:35
@alphalas, #3275 is done. NO OPEN TICKETS!
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:36
:fireworks:
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:36
they are, Simon, but i was thinking this guy is probably closer to a dreadnought than a space marine :stuck_out_tongue:
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:36
:palm_tree:
I just wonder if they will be 3+ WS
because if they are, that makes them extremely unpleasant
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:37
aberrant already are, so i wouldnt be surprised if he's 2+
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:38
:worried:
probably toughness a billion too
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:39
nah, GSC are top-heavy. he'll be T5 at most
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:41
Ah, The Disappointment Channel continues to deliver
So lemme get this shit straight
Fukken genestealer cult filth gets to double hit on 6s and get buffs basically out a wazoo, and they have a sledgehammer that outperforms a thunder hammer in every single way and does a aminimum of 3 dmg up to 6 with no penalty to hit
And yet
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:43
you got it
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:43
TWC are neutered down to S8 thammers that are still -2 to hit
Someone please explain this to me
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:43
:+1:
well... it's obvious, Marine ONLY train to fight for their entire lives, whereas GSC "things" are born to kill...
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe blinks
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:44
Sure
No I think the real answer is GW just hates Space Wolves
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:45
hold your horses wolves, we havent seen what TWC look like in the codex yet
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:46
I'll eat a pair of socks live on webcam for all to see if they make them the superstars they used to be
They aren't going to change them, probably not even a little bit
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:46
Bagged and tagged.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:47
I'd trade every Primaris model ever made for good TWC
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:47
a whole pair of socks... that's a sumptuous feast
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:47
Well to be fair I only own "no show" socks
But -- sadly -- I feel I'm really, really safe in that bet
If I was a bettin' man -- which I'm not -- but if I was I'd take that action on the Vegas strip in a heartbeat
I know this is abhorrent to say...but just give me back mah 7e TWC, thanks
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Aug 16 2018 15:51
but if they make TWC great again, who's going to buy all the new shiny primaris models
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe misses his fully-operational Wolfstar. He really does. :cry:
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:51
Well
I'm not going to buy them in any case
I got Dark Imperium -- split it with a DG buddy
Sat on them
Then traded all the Primmies in the set for a decent-sized pile of metal Sisters
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 16 2018 15:52
Unpopular opinion: s10 TWC were a MISTAKE
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:52
You shut your whore mouth
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:53
eh. these days there's not much difference between S8 and S10
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:53
They were superior slayers, apex predators
Oh but there is. There's plenty of S5 filth out there that needs to die
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:55
i guess against knights it's relevant. but otherwise, it's wounding exactly T5 on 3+ instead of 2+
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 16 2018 15:55
yeah, which makes a big difference when you consider "re-roll 1 to wound" is a common thing
ah...
maybe not
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 16 2018 15:56
That 2+ makes all the difference, since SW re-rolling to W is the rarest of precious treasures
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 16 2018 15:56
re-rolling 1s is a flat multiplier though. the difference is 20% regardless of whether you have rr1s or not
Simon Porter
