@WindstormSCR that list sounds like some tasty filth
I was paid one of the highest compliments even in the event in Waco I played in Saturday
Second round opponent looks at my side of the board (having won go first)
Thinks for a moment
Then says, "You've really got the whole 'threat overload' thing down."
I said, "Thank you."
We had a fantastic game. Very tactical, lots of swings both ways...but in the end his decision to ignore my Castellen with his Castellan was his undoing.

just busy
but yeah, your lists are getting more refined as time goes
@CrusherJoe I might get some grumbling for running "totally not sammael" with surgery done for inquisition symbols and deathwatch pads/helmet
I do like the model for him, even if its finecast and I'll have to buff out some DA iconography
but its not like modern calgar where every inch is covered in "this is my chapter!"
will see if I want to keep his sword or use a different one
but I can't pass up a jetbike with a plasma cannon :P

i guess not many people make non-HQs their warlord

Well, we have no QA, so if no-one is bothered to raise the issue, we don't know :D
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 15 13:14
yeah, but in 18 months, no other DA player has tried to make a non-HQ a Warlord?

@amis92
Jan 15 13:15
Is that common? I've never done non-HQ a Warlord before, TBH, in all of: Tau, GK, Necrons, Salamanders.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 15 13:15
I have once or twice with ADM.
Make a Datasmith the warlord to support dakkabots.
Necrons ... can't?
Well they can I guess, but the only targets are c'tans that can't have WT anyway

laughs in guard
Every single individual model unit in Guard can be warlord in BS

Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 15 13:17
I'm surprised there isn't a regimental trait that plays like Alpha Legion for guard.
When one commisar falls, the next steps up to be Warlord.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 15 13:17
lol. that would be a nightmare
Earl Bishop

Oh it would be dirty and a slog to play against, but I could fluff it out in my head.

i could imagine it if it only worked for senior officers

exactly
The whole cadia mantra fits that, the guard never falls. There is always someone to lead.

Technically, every model in any army can be the Warlord, it's just that only Characters get the good stuff

"Play with what you have, we don't want you to have to buy more"
Which has certainly changed to "Buy all of these models!" "Here have point cost reductions, buy more models!"
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 15 13:22
pre-FAQ you got charged for the full squad. after the first FAQ you only pay for what you bring. after the next FAQ you could only bring them in ASDs (like it is now)
Earl Bishop

"After the last FAQ we all forgot about that stupid rule"
That's how it should be.

Though I see your nearer DDA has the nice stable magnetization.
Hanging cannon looks neat, but the topside cannon is so much easier to swap between ghost ark

oh?
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 15 13:35
but I did drill the hole for the base so that near the entire stick goes up to keep it steady
yeah the furtherst one is my magnetised one
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 15 13:36
Oh the nearer one isn't magnetized?
Well you can always swap the other one easily enough.
I'd had mine mag'ed like your far one, hated it, so unmagged all of it but the sleepy boyz and the cannon and made it like your nearer one.
A 2nd flying base helps tremendously too for the stability if you have extras.

Jan 15 13:37
I magentised all the guns and the prow so they can go the right way around .. the nearer one was glued as a GA .. so I snipped out the warriors and shaved the prow to fit the gun .. only way I could arange it ... well annoyed

Yea, I did that too on my first one ... fuck was that a mistake. Hard to unmag those too
Thank god for green stuff to fill.

Don't.
Pay Joe to print you weapon mounts.
and mount each weapon on a lockbit.

one more and I have the three. Then - never ever again. I'll suffer through that when the time comes.
But... there are 3D templates for those mounts?
Cause that harlequin guy has a 3D printer... 2 actually... and has started printing a crashed imperial corvette battleship. I bet if I...

But eh. The biggest problem is the mounting of the gun holdy bit to the crawler bit. The rest is cake.
I'm confused and angry right now.

But... just for reference... Joe does such things?

That Bastion looks awesome! I dont play overwatch, but even I can see the appeal in that (at leats its not poptardheads!)

Yep, the mount has a 3d file on Thing I can grab tonight for you if you want
