I think I've noticed some issues with the Ahriman entries in Thousand Sons (specifically, you can't select Sorcerous Arcanum for him, and his invulnerable save doesn't show up on his statline, even though other armies do include the invuln in 3+/4++ format). I can fix these things in the data editor locally and I know how to make a PR. Is the correct thing for me to do to fix these and then put up a PR, or is there more to it? If there's any info on best practices for conditionals and stuff in the data editor that'd probably be helpful for me.
the git repo suggests reporting a bug, but I figured I could try to be more helpful than that :P

sorry everyone - just found the wiki that has all this info. I'll go off and read rather than bothering you lol

Ok so BS's ads are getting really creepy
They keep advertising for a car dealership near me....

Reporting an issue is always a good first step - this opens up discussion. Simple PRs are cool too. In that specific case of inv save, it'll be up to file maintainer. We don't have a guideline for that.

Hi @pwestling, I'm the TS maintainer. Ahriman can't take Sorcerous Arcana because he's a Named Character, which is why there's no entry for them on his profile. The "++" notation has never been a GW thing; it's a community created shorthand and doesn't appear on any datasheet (and didn't appear on unit entries in earlier editions). Therefore, I don't include it on the representation of the datasheet in the catalogues.

speaking of TS, does the "Testing Detachment" serve any purpose?
Iain Launchbury

What Testing Detachment? There is no Testing Detachment. There has never been a Testing Detachment. We have always been at war with Eastasia.

And then, while watching the events IRL:

i'm in danger

Why are you in danger?
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Aug 21 2018 12:35
It was a loose connection with the fake news, politics and that whole shit. More accurately, it should be "everyone's in danger". 😇

I thought I'd missed something, or that the BBC didn't deem it important enough to have a story.

Dur! We decided to change our minds after we printed the entire print run of Space Wolves.

it'll be interesting to see what the difference is :smile:

Given that they actually teased the "fixed" versions the other day, this smacks to me of them covering up a mistake.
The change is probably just giving them the aura if you hit the condition.

looking at them, I suspect Warrior Born and Bear will get the most use.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 21 2018 13:04
Warrior Born doesn't look that great to me, and its deed is not that easy to achieve. Wolfkin and maybe Hunter seem like better picks, imo

really? Always going first in Assault seems pretty good to me, especially when you can apply it to everyone in 6".

@GenWilhelm
Aug 21 2018 13:05
it's only really relevant if you're fighting against another melee army though

yeah for Bear you need your character Warlord in front of his screen to take a save vs damage and at that point he's getting every damn gauss blaster I can lay my robotic hands on
insert finger to head guy meme "Can't make a save if all my wounds are Mortal!"
Will Pattison

i was thinking more along the lines of charging him into something that is good on overwatch, like a flamer, so he only has to take one or two saves before he hits melee
that's how i used the khorne one at least :stuck_out_tongue:

What I was told last week was that GW didn't do the Sagas...it was the playtesters that gave them idea

@Mad-Spy thanks for the update, and noted. I had suspected maybe I was missing something re: Arcana given everything else was put together so well. Thanks for confirmation on the save thing being an intentional choice.
