if you manage to get 60 people rounded up multiple times a week, be able to select 40 of them and keep everyone happy enough... yeah, that DOES require some leadership ^^

So, in other news .. Crons are 8-0 in our little local meta ... I'm starting to think of ways to dumb down my lists as it's becoming worrisome!
I do NOT want the TFG tag applied to me .. like ever
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 23 11:44
well, the TFG tag is only applied to people who deliberately play like dicks, isn't it??
Is this just since the latest FAQ/CA update??
surely this should be a sign to your local meta that they need to "git gud"??

yeah, if crons are eight for zero, it's either divine intervention or your opponents need to step it up :smile:

(or Price is a tactical prodigy who cannot be bested on the battlefield ^^)

Yup, there's the Answer ... this one .. yeah!

and yup it's since CA18 and I started taking DDAs ... they kinda feel like EZ mode vs most stuff , especially with the triple threat of destroyers and wraiths from every angle to stuff up ppls day.

I'm even wasting points on Canoptek spyders and a squad of Praetorians to camp the backfield..

While I'm definately enjoying the streak ... I know it can only last so long ... and want my friends to have fun playing me.
We have mono knights, 1KSons, Wolves, DG, T'au (Triptide list or the8), EC and Black legion, ... I've not faced Orks or Custodes yet tho .. so I think I'll be done for there

yeah, I know a guy with quins but he hardly plays ..
no guard either
guess I need to find a few more locals that play ... or not take the DDA, wraiths or destroyers

i'm mostly wondering how well you'd do against ravagers and haywire spam :stuck_out_tongue:
especially since you cant interact with their psykers
there were a couple of cron lists that placed at GTs recently though
so maybe theyre no longer as weak as people think
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 23 12:49
yeah, I got beaten up by a Necron army with a DDA against my Deathwatch, and that was even with him forgetting his Quantum Shielding so it got taken down with relative ease - still did a LOT of damage...!

pinch me, I may be dreaming

@GenWilhelm what's a ravager ?

But not a bad idea to keep it in a resume

@sk_Father_Price_twitter also no deathwatch who are excellent at dealing with crons

they 'should' do .. but I have played them ... was worried at first but through bad target selection .. I lost one model to the whole DW alpha and then tabled them.

now that said the guy is super nice and easy going so wasn't really any cheese in the list .. he brings corvus blackstars and primaris... so I thought I was going easy on him ... that was the one I took the Mephrit Brigade against

people STILL keep trying to kill my wraiths ... I keep making saves ... what can I say
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 23 16:45
So Price
I just finished a Stalker and GW intends us to keep the front legs mobile and hinged.
Does that mean it's within the rules to fold up the legs when I don't want to be charged, but extend them to make my charges and shooting easier?
:p

@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 23 16:56
mine falls over if I don't glue the bugger so by all means try a dynamic pose but I think you'll end up looking at 'Face planted the undying' instead lol
I kinda would like a similar rule to the Seraptek - the virtual base where enemies can't get under it ... it's so easy to tri-point
"What you mean I can't fall back ...?" ... "yeah those dudes are hugging its leg!"
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 23 17:02
I will be gluing this one, was just another funny thought
Oop, It's on it's tip toes, can't charge it without 2" more.

what do you guys think of the new commissar model
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 23 18:58
a female Commissar, how preposterous!! :grinning:

How dare they add female commisaresses
Commisess?

@GenWilhelm for CP costs in cats.
What if we tie the CP cost to the Chapter Tactics entry instead of it's own generic one?
or @WindstormSCR ... I forget who was the one that came up with the solution (sorry!)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 23 21:14
i was thinking you could do something in the GST, like add a category that only IK use, and validate off that?
like add "Imperial Knights" category to the GST, change the TITANIC knights over to that one (leave non-TITANIC on the cat version), then somehow validate from there?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 23 21:24
For #4500 you mean?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 23 21:24
yeah
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 23 21:24
Hmm, not a bad idea.
I could move Faction: IK to GST
and validate off of both.
I will try that thanks :D
That aside - the actual CP cost tracker that was being worked on; I'm wondering if we tie it to Chapter Tactics (something every army has now, and should have by default in any force) and can forgo the odd CP cost No Org slot entry.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 23 21:31
what if you have a mixed detachment?
actually, yeah, i guess you only count the parent force
that could work
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 23 21:33
Yea, you'd only count the parent
Just a thought
same effect in the end, just one less superfluous entry
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 23 21:36
yep. just need to keep the old one around for random cats that dont have tactics
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 23 21:37
oh yea, the two kill team ones :/
damn
Assassins gets a pass cause it gives no CP anyway
