2nd game, yes... it seems like it, it was awesome fun! (winning did help a lot, but 8th really is a good, albeit not overly tight, ruleset) I see more coming up :P

@tekton thanks, one can tell it is my second army and I learned a bit on the DA :P

bad thing is, I'm more and more itching to get an assault drill.. not that I could use it, but I WANT it. 117$ is really, really pushing it though.

Wow! @Thairne - one significant hit and you're already hitting up the resin dealer for something a bit stronger ;)
Really good looking game though ... well played indeed, I took my crons out vs the dreaded T'au this weekend in 2500 pts ... (and yes winning definitely colours the experience) but was regardless a fun game... No arguments from me or anyone else I don't think .. that 8th is awesome with room for improvement in some aspects.

plastic crack holds nothing to resin dust... only the truly hardcore go through the pain of resin to get the high :P
I'm somewhat of a mind to reinvest a bit in my DA too though.. after all I have a pro-painted Fire Raptor that was pretty pricey sitting on display...
If only not some of those models were so badly painted...

I can recommend a 3-way though (in 40k, you bakka hentai!) it kind of makes it feel less like "out to get you" when you can see your opponents go at each other and fuck up die/make all the saves :P

Mmm, Chapter Approved "Next Month"
I wonder if that means November or December
@CrusherJoe / @GenWilhelm Either of you using your branches? Wolfy Fixes and Rogue Trader?
I see you're both the last to commit about a month ago.
@acebaur If you're around, any need for the DW fixes branch you have?

no, the last DW fixes were mine committed directly because I forgot to branch
Alex Baur

Oct 29 2018 14:44
No you can dump that branch

wasnt using the RT branch, so i've binned it
you talking about the WD leak, Earl?
'cause that's from November's issue

Yea I was - Ah so that's December for CA2018 then
Perfect - that's what I was checking before I binned them, no need for stale branches :D

I haven't used it in a while
You can delete it
I'll make a new branch when I do the latest Wolfy fixes

@WindstormSCR I've just committed a version of the Ork cat to my branch with updated points. Still a bunch of stub entries, but if you want to play around with it, feel free.
I hope to put in most of the new buggy stats this afternoon.

It's kinda stupid that every chance GW gets they remove the looted wagon, and then immediately add it back in.

Except it'll probably be narative only this time around
so now they don't need to worry about balance

if it's like the landraiders, it will be token and best and open play only
the land raiders were a serious letdown

I just think it is dumb that they are cutting it for the 3rd codex in a row.

especially when they've standardized light and heavy tanks for the first time ever
with light tanks at T7/10w and heavies at T8/12w
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Oct 29 2018 20:51
I do love that light tanks are T7, makes them far easier to shoot :p, don't need 6s to glance at S4 anymore :D
(Comparing to AV10)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Oct 29 2018 21:07
actually you need more S4 shots than before by about triple, because before there was no armor save to get through
so before it was hit > 6s > 3 times = dead
now it's hit > 5s > fail 3+ armor (or 4+ if some ap) > 10 times = dead
major change in survivability
heavy tanks even moreso

demon vehicles even morerer so, if you cant kill them outright that auto-regen and that invul is pretty annoying

Since I've decided to skip orks I've been poking at options and ways to add more armored support elements to my DW
and I've arrived at whirlwinds with a land speeder for spotting
and no one does what I need better than DA
since a land speeder vengeance actually is worth its points and qualifies for Datalink Telemetry strat

I know, still deciding what to chop
but my epiphany came when I realized that vehicles don't care about mission tactics unless you're using the Tome of the Ectoclades exploit
so it doesn't matter if they're in a 'DA' or 'SM' detachment
yeah they won't get captain auras, but the major heavy support is usually far away from that anyway
