hmmm
@CrusherJoe I never realized, but space wolves solve my problems for creating "fluffy" deathwatch
long fangs are basically upgunned deathwatch heavy teams now
because they can take MM/Plas/Las and still have a terminator with heavy following them about

Also, you get stormfang gunships.
And those are just as cool as Corvus's
Cooler, IMO ... since there's a giant fucking cannon on the front
It's like a stormraven, a land raider, and a russ had a baby from a machine three-way

Yup - I have a buddy who runs 2-3 caestus and 2-3 stormwolfs
Since the BFAQ2 he puts his wulfen in the caestus

@Kohato, you talking about the guy on Reddit? Saying he can swap 1 boltgun for 3 items? We had the same argument on a issue about 6 or 8 weeks back and basically said "Nope".

Yepper
He's going to bring it to Github "soon" - I have failed to get through his denial.

the conclusion we can to last time was the wargear list says you can "exchange one or more items for an item from one of the Space Marine wargear lists" (emphasis is mine), meaning you get a single item from the list for each item you exchange

Yepper.
Trust me, It's fairly easy to grasp ... But Apparently I suck at convincing.

he says a few times that the codex doesnt say it's a 1:1 replacement, but i didnt see you point out to him that it actually does say that
Earl Bishop

Oct 14 2018 16:00
It's a 1-2 for one of the sgt lists
1-1 for the other
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 14 2018 16:01
no, it's 1:1 on all of the wargear lists
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Oct 14 2018 16:01
oh nvm - yea 1:1 - you can just replace 2 of them for the first list.
He's trying to replace the 1 swappable weapon on a dev sgt with a combi-grav and a chainsword
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 14 2018 16:02
yeah exactly, if you have two weapons to trade in, you can take two from the first list
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Oct 14 2018 16:02
So he's gonna put in a github and i'm not gonna try to tell him no again.

Wow...that's...quite a few with my name on it
#3668 okay, I'll bite, what's "new method" of relic validation "limiting the Relic SSEG instead" mentioned by @Mad-Spy
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 14 2018 16:13
if all of the relics are being selected from the same shared group, you can just validate from that group instead of doing the same validation on "tag" selection entries
it looks something like this

Cool, thanks. Looks like it's time to re-re-re-do the Relics of The Fang
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe sighs. Deeply.

@CrusherJoe, Don't worry. I redid SM relics so it's not just you that is going to break everyone's lists!

Anyone here collect old wizzos Star Wars minis?
I got a bunch to resell and some of them aren’t being bought by the place I’m going through anymore
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Oct 14 2018 17:19
The reason I used the tag was mostly because at the time I originally did custodes (which was the first to use that tagging system) Bscribe really, really didn't like validation being done that way on lists if they were nested inside other lists (like weapons)
if it works now then that's good news and I'll get around to changing the other cats I maintain eventually
@Kohato stormfangs would be more interesting if I didn't own a stormeagle and wanted wolves for more than long fang and whirlwind access :P

@CrusherJoe, in addition to what @Kohato showed above, it's now better to do the weapon constraints on SSEs and then link them into the SSEG so they don't need manual editing. Take a look at the SM relics for examples.

I tell you what @Thairne It's better than my grey horde I still have yet to find the motivation to paint
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 14 2018 21:35
that actually is quite likely... those admech models are nice, but so many lil fiddly bits...
basecoat them at least? So you have a non-grey-horde? :P
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Oct 14 2018 21:40
I keep telling myself I will when I'm done assembling things
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 14 2018 21:40

Solution: Have 1 thing assembled, ready to prime
have 1 thing primed, ready to basecoat
have 1 thing basecoated, ready to block in colours

So whatever you want to do, you can ;)

Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Oct 14 2018 21:41
we're way passed have 1 thing assembled :p
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Oct 14 2018 21:41
if you build stuff without painting it, you can put it on the table.
If you can put it on the table, you aint paintin' it.
So dont build stuff if there is built stuff to be painted :P
yeah thats your mistake right there :P
