it is. Looks absolutely awesome, even just printed.
The turrets are removable so you have LOS holes in the thing and ofc you can place the parts as you wish - its like 40k terrain lego!

if I could get myself motivated to dial in my printer for the new PLA I bought (it's crap) there's a WIP of the Seraptek Construct I want to try

and resin printing is almost good enough for MEQ size stuff now ... GW could do worse than try selling the .STL's for an astronomical fee for some semi detailed models

@Kohato - any chance I can ask for a QoL fix? it's not a bug, just when you select immortals
Immortals -Tesla or Gauss, Immortals ... makes my eye twitch everytime lol

@thairne, #4472, the OP is correct. It should be possible to take the same rifle as the squad AND a melee weapon, but it doesn't validate.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 16 09:33
Hang on, I see that I can do that, but the implementation is a bit confusing. I don't think it needs the "bolt rifle" subsection? The Sgt should just be able to take 1 rifle (which matches the squad) and/or a melee weapon. I feel like the SM implementation is clearer?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 16 09:34
Im looking at it right now and I'm just as bamboozled as you
I think there was some faq or something in CA that allowed him to either exchange or take in addition..
yeah CA18 had a new datasheet. Can exchange or take in addition. Constraints seem a bit fucked up

yeah, the Intercessors have been messed about a lot since they started.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 16 09:37
I see.
It is a bit weird and confusing...
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 16 09:37
I think it's because in DA, if you want two weapons, you need to select both from the top section, but it looks like you should select one from both?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne

if you have a stalker, you cannot exchange the bolt rifle and have to select the "addition" option basically
yep, exactly
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 16 09:38
The general interpretation is that you can replace your "bolt rifle", no matter what type it is.
and that's how some of the models are designed, i.e. I'm pretty sure there's one with an auto bolt rifle and a melee.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 16 09:39
but that's just plain wrong.. a bolt rifle is different from a stalker bolter or an auto bolt rifle...
Anyway, the UX is bad and needs toc hange.
I'll just steal from SM and be done with it.
woopsiedaisy, someone fucked up the GST?

"BattleScribe v2.01.00.82.ALPHA"

WHAT
WHY

Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 16 12:59
LOL
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 16 12:59
Roster is at BattleScribe v2.01.15.114
So why the flying fuck...
oh lord
My shortcut actually pointed at the alpha version...
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 16 13:03
yeah, I installed the 2.02 beta at one point and it changed my shortcuts
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 16 13:03
tricky battlescribses!
can you imagine the agony of working with an alpha all these years and cursing every bug I had to endure which just WOULDNT GET FUCKING FIXED?!
I... I don't even... I can't...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm

let us know the difference that 15 versions makes :smile:

I like the use of wenn
do you mean when, or if...??

the more I watch on BFG Armada 2, the more I'm becoming interested...

Jan 16 13:15

oops
Germanized!

I mean the point in time where some significant changes happen to a codex I maintain so more things happen then "Cant take Spess Mehreen Detachment for Derp Angels!"

I treat games as I do movies nowadays.
Stay away, keep the innocence then be blown away from the result
typing not strong today.

it's OK

@sk_Father_Price_twitter Do you mean the fact that the roster reads: 10x Immortals and the Team choice of weapon?
That comes from the whole squad needing weapons - Collective with squad choices doesn't exactly work well.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 16 14:09
they work, its just clunky
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 16 14:10
Hell back when I made the cat it didn't even work.
Making a unit weapon choice collective started multiplying the choices.

Jan 16 14:34
@Kohato yeah it's just the swapping of the order from gauss to tesla swaps how they appear on a list ... it's not a massive deal ... just wondered if it was an easy fix.

That's Battlescribe putting things in alpha order.

ooohh .. yeah ... Tricksey Battlescribeses !
todays lesson bought to you by @Mad-Spy , the letters 'I' 'T' and 'G' what word can we spell with those children ? ... that's right GIT!

I could see how well it behaves with ASCII and see if I can force a sort :D No garauntees though becuase yea, Alphabetical is a bitch.

Also, think my heavy destroyer can pass as a loyal imperium soldier?
Disfigured dreadnaught perhaps.
He may look a little necronish, but as you can see by his clear and visible aquila he has nothing but the utmost loyalty to the emperor.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 16 15:16
That's how you know, isn't it?
Iain Launchbury

His Bayonet is firmly affixed = loyal soldier of the imperium

I think the HD weapon turned out nicely
Currently duplicating it 8 times :p
So far no blood sacrificed despite dangerously close chopping with an exacto
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 16 15:58
so, you rate the heavy destroyers mate ? or just experimenting
https://i.imgur.com/Qx0Fpml.jpg
used Tesla destructors for mine .. but only for 3 of them ... that sit in the foam box and barely see any play
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 16 16:02
I thought about that, but I only have 2 of them to spare
so I'm using 2 gauss cannon bits per
HD aren't horrible, they're not the best with 1 shot though
the best is still a blob. 6 Destroyers, 3 HD, and a DL in the middle of them.
Rain fire down from 36"
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 16 16:03
yeah looking good ..
fills a spare heavy role in a spearhead I guess
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 16 16:04
Yea they do

And if you go Nihilakh (I think) they have a dynasty strat to Deep Strike destroyers
Spend some CP to get them where you please and annihilate from behind.

Translocation Crypt - infantry or swarm
thems the advance 6" dudes though ..
not exactly an awesome code

It is if you're running heavy Lychguard.
Dash up in cover to get your charge off

Jan 16 16:17
well, 15 minutes til go time ... going to try Sautekh on the DDA spearhead and move up the middle this time .. see how an aggressive play works instead of terrain sniping
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 16 16:19
nice
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 16 16:20
will give him chance to get the dreads all up close at least and test QS against middling damage rather than the auto pass vs knights 6 damage
might have to spend CP on the shielding strat
/shudder
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 16 16:41
QS is the devil
lol
