question about custom characters & battle honours: why is the trait selection not the child of the main selector?

Less clicking?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 12:40
i guess
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 14:08
so i guess spore mines can gain battle honours just fine?
since theyre not CHARACTER, SWARM, DRONE, or BUILDING

@GenWilhelm because that was strangely the thing that slowed mobile to a crawl, fuck knows why
but its another 'quirk' we know about now at least

@GenWilhelm yeah, they can, but I don't see the point since they kill themselves, so will never actually earn enough campaign xp to hit R1
max they can earn per game is 1pt
1+1-d3

it's legal, so /shrug
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Dec 27 2018 14:55
yeah
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 14:55
also, are custom characters max 1 per army?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Dec 27 2018 14:55
I need to double check CA, but I believe so
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 14:56
if they are, that would make malanthropes much easier

@WindstormSCR I put custom charas in the 3 Guard cats and AS
If you or @GenWilhelm wanna check my work that’d be kewl
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 15:37
i saw you did it for guard, but didnt see battle honours
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 27 2018 15:37
Gunna do battle honors in a few min, then I’ll work on putting chars into my other minicats
Correct I didn’t put honors in yet

right i've committed all of the nids stuff for #4315. only thing that remains is i need to figure out how to do malanthropes cleanly
Earl Bishop

Dec 27 2018 15:58
Link them on the individual model you take as part of the brood?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 15:58
individual models are collective, and i dont want to break that
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Dec 27 2018 15:59
You'll have to :/ Battle Honors are separate per brood model.
that are treated like separate units I mean.
Though - You could duplicate the shared entry in the brood
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 15:59
custom characters, you mean
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Dec 27 2018 15:59
That too
Either one
You could duplicate the shared entry you add though - and hide it entirely unless custom character/BH is checked.
then hide the one without CC if it is.
If no CC, You keep collective. If CC - you add individual ones that can be characters.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 16:00
i'm thinking atm either
  1. if it's max 1 CC per army, i can just link it to the unit; or
  2. create a new model selection for Malanthrope (Custom Character)
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Dec 27 2018 16:01
It's open only - so there's no max per army.
Yea, #2 is what I was suggesting.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 16:01
the GST selection currently has max 1 per roster, so that must have come from somewhere
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Dec 27 2018 16:02
Oh is there?
Huh, I didn't see that in CA. So yea - 1 per roster I suppose.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 16:02
i'm gonna take a look when i get home
Earl Bishop

#4331 "Please review the 2018 changes"
I suppose we should do that since he asked so nicely.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 27 2018 17:22
i cant see anything that says you can only have one custom character, so i'll go ahead and implement it on malanthropes
Jon Kissinger

What’s a really funny application of battle honors - Cyclopses lol
Or tarantulas lol
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Dec 27 2018 18:32
funny? rapiers
they technically take vehicle or warrior honors, your choice
since CA doesn't specify how to handle a situation with multiple valid keywords
dirty? repulsor with the enhanced ammo
24 shots of D2
or something something knights
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Dec 27 2018 18:37
T-C'tan with Custom Character traits lol
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Dec 27 2018 18:37
try a custom character knight castellan
or gallant
extra attacks, only wounded on 4s
other bullshit besides
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 27 2018 19:00
And all my stuff except BA are pushed to master
I’ll go over that bugrep in a bit
I have a feeling it’s someone misunderstanding he’s paying for the model and the wargear, not just the wargear
Idk
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 27 2018 19:05
I’ll look

Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
