the thing is
then you have to duplicate that obnoxious structure in EVERY cat
as it stands now, its loaded once, referred to, and is easy to edit if CP values change
is it nice and elegant? fuck no
but it works without bloat for any and every force
IK being the sole exception
@/all this is why I support keeping the current setup with knights as a specific exception (just put the logic in the GST for the SHD and tie it to IK:Titanic or something
or even Knights:Titanic and use the same logic and marker for renegades
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 03:36
Also unbound forces do not have CT or equivalents, nor do mixed forces
so tying two things together that are not related in rules solely for dropping one item on a display, seems iffy
@Kohato if you want I can make the knights flag in the GST, or you can, but it should be easy to make work for IK and renegades

I really need to learn to look before diving into a project...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 03:41
what did you dive into
cartag
@cartag
Jan 24 03:41
Building an entire cat for Gloomspite Gitz because I was impatient....
All in the past 4 hours.
This is what happens when I get bored and don't want to hobby

Lmao
Hey, AOS might appreciate it, I know they hadn't finished it yet.
Also @WindstormSCR Go ahead - I won't be getting to it tonight. Can you make it "Faction: Imperial Knights"
Yea, IK is the sole icky one and I'd rather not go the chaos route of a custom force type that will just cause problems and confusion (Like it did for chaos knights) so if the category is in GST that might work :D
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 07:33
Will do tomorrow
well, technically today
and its not faction IK, since you need to differentiate titanic and non titanic, because armigers
I’ll make a thing that works
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 10:02
Titanic is already there so I can. Just the one faction ik should work. I can do and or groups.

it is a nice model
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 12:59

Lol

You'll stop laughing once Cawl gets hit for 5 dmg with Ap-4 in the face when charging , whiffs completely with his Arc Scourge when flailing at a Starweaver and then gets shot off the table with a total of 2 shots.
Fusion Pistols are a freaking menace.

Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:01
@Thairne that's what you were talking about when you said the elfies scared you
I was wondering
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:03
yeah, elves are insane. when the're played well (and don't whiff all their rolls) it feels like there's nothing you can do against them
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:03

yeah it was a pretty confounding change
We were at T2 and it was pretty late, I had a pretty big advantage looking at the table and I offered to quit with a victory to me
opponent wasnt content with that and wanted a draw
nope, I said, I'm going to win this clearly!

well, lets just say the next round was pretty brutal. I'm still shocked how much damage suddenly was pouring out with Ap -3, Ap -4, D3 and D6 damage... a good third of my army simply evaporated

Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:04
I know that feeling, haywire Vs my double's partners' Knights was somewhat unpleasant
but yes, they do require some finesse
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:06
dunno about finesse, to me it looks like "drive up starweavers, shoot. Disembark, shoot at point blank, charge, reap skulls, laugh, fall back, shoot&charge again. Repeat until tabled" :P
still reeling a bit to try and come up with something that can counter that
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:07
against pure clowns, just volume of fire
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:07
yeah I know, make them fail their invuln
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:07
theyre all on invulns, so AP means nothing to them
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:08
yeah, you do need a heck of a weight of fire though
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:08
they're so goddamn quick though and can pile in/consolidate to draw your units into melee...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:08
so stuff like punishers, massed lasguns, autocannons
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:08
you'll wound on 3+ and 4+ most of the time, fucking shadowseers..
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:08
I also found that they're not super tough in combat - my Apothecary surived a couple of turns against three eldar HQ's
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:09
that is true, but the output they have is impressive once they get where they want to be
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:09
depends what you're fighting. harlequin characters will happily rip you new one before you get to swing back
i think if you can get the drop on them, they die relatively easily. but theyre just so damn manoeuvrable
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:11
and always get first turn due to low unit count
if I seize, he's in trouble
otherwise... uh... *cough
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:12
well they just deploy out of LoS then jump forward on their turn
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne

^^
Muchas gracias
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:13
and the armies look lovely
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:14
so far the only thing I can come up with is better bubble wrapping, deploying further back (and pick the appropriate deployment type) then pop one star weaver at a time, whittle down the troupes and charge them, THEN take care of Skyweavers and Voidweavers.
yeah he's made an ace job of airbrushing the checkers on the things... while I rely on admech being busy to not have to highlight much :D
I intend to spice up the terrain with some more chem zone stuff to make it a bit less bland
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:18
sounds like a good idea
also, it depends how many skyweavers there are
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:20

looking at it I should've deployed the crawlers further back with cawl between them, pull back the screen accordingly and have the fulgurites further back too for counter charges... they did their job, but not without losses from shooting first..
And priorise the starweavers with shadowseers in them, then troupe masters. Ignore solitaire and death jesters because well, you killed chaff, congratz.

He had... 6 I think

Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:20
two full size squads with haywire cannons will make it a day day for anyone
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:20
yeah, 2 with haywire cannons which I took out asap
can one actually fire overwatch from open topped transports?
eh no you can't.
That would've made quite a difference...
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:23
did your opponent?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:23
depends on the wording on Open-topped, but i dont believe clowns can
yeah, starweaver says "in their Shooting phase", so they can't overwatch
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:24
yes he did, but purely out of ignorance not malevolence
I'm not that familiar with transport rules in 8th because.. well. admech :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:26
hehehehe
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:26
no pychic powers while embarked I assume also then... since the model is not on the board...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:27
that's correct
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:27

not familiar with psychic rules in 8th because... well. admech :P

goddamn.
I got pretty hosed with that too.

Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:28
RIP
generally, while you're in a transport you can't do jack
open-topped just gives them permission to shoot out in the Shooting phase
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:29
that is quite... less pressure in the first 1 or 2 turns then.
also, more arquebi.
Those HQ's need to disappear FAST.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:35
I wonder if a vindicare and a culexus...
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:36
you need more than a single vindicare
I used one in a game against harlequins and you have no idea how easy it is to fluff a 2+
and then, even if you make you 2+ to hit, and 2+ to wound, it is also easy to fluff you D3 damage
even having said that, you still need at least two turns to kill an HQ with one Vindicare
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:37
kind of, but dont have :P
I used him once and he was boss (plus I have 14 CP), but I totally understand single shot risks...
But that's why 4 Arquebi are there for the support.
and the culexus helps too since he can target the shadowseers too
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:40
culexus is excellent
vindicares are just too damn inefficient (same as most snipers)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:40
yeah, if I was starting an Ad Mech army I think I'd look for a way to include as many Arquebi as possible as well
14CP is ... a lot
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:41
"simple" brigade with -1 for the aux to bring the culexus
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:41
>only running one brigade
laughs in guard
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:42
at 1500, I thought that sufficient - especially since he showed up with 7 CP (2 battalions I think - grand harlequin and relics strat)
boy was I wrong.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:42
.... it helps if you have options for each slot that don't feel like a tax
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:44
elites and fast attack often feel like taxes. i've taken to running 3x battalion in most of my lists
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:45
true, but dragoons are awesome. Elites are a bit worse, but fulgurites for the counter charge or infiltrators are fine (and if you want to get cheap you can bring servitors for 20 a pop)
What I brought

Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 13:46
Tau are another one that it’s not hard to double-brig - just everything’s so damn expensive
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 13:47
that's the trick with guard. if you bring only tax units, you have enough left over for expensive stuff ^^
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:53
Alright. Have a plan. Feel better. Trauma lessened. Want to kill elfies again.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:55
beautiful
the BSData support group wins again
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:56
doesnt that make you a traitor on your own kind? :P
Or did you see my defeat in the strands of fate and engineer my downfall by boosting my ego so I actually enter combat again?
ELDAR TRICKERY!
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:56
"...three answers, all of which are true..."
and you didn't specify which elfies
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 13:57
Not as planned!.jpg
all of them :P plus I expect drukhari too next time
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 13:57
those dark ones actually enjoy being killed so..... go wild
and you never really kill harlequins, just damage their clothing so they get upset and have to run off to fix it
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 14:20

gaudy space elves... next time I'll throw mudballs at them

Jan 24 14:23
oh dear...
what doe he whine about??
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 24 14:23
He's been bitching about the Castellan
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 14:23
lel
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 24 14:23
And Guard
And how unfair it is that some other faction has been on top other than Ynarri for 16 weeks
And how the Castellan needs to be nerfed (it probably does) and how ridiculous Guard are (they really aren't)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 14:25
>plays the direct counter to something
>complains about it anyway
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 24 14:25
So I said, "You know how you feel right now? How you've been feeling since Ynarri aren't the top cheesemonger army right now?"
"Yes."
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 14:25
righto, "if you can't beat them, join them"... so, either figure out how to wreck the Castellan or buy one - either way, stop moaning :smile:

2013 != 2019 :P
that was 6th level monstrous creature bullshit
Will Pattison

i still feel ashamed for using the words "casting invisibility on the wraithknight" in a game once
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 24 14:27
See
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 24 14:27
I see your Tri-Falcon PTSD and extrapolate that it was my second game ever and I had 2 tactical squads on the table in a 2on1 :P
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 14:27
i love playing cheese, but that was a major oof
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 24 14:27
just because i'm taking part in what is supposed to be a fluffy escalating campaign with my friends, and their lists were not what I would call "fluffy" in the theme of the campaign
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 24 14:28
That those words exist is why I never felt shame for using the words, "I cast Invis on the wolfstar...that goes off, cool...now I cast Veil of Time on the wolfstar..."
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 14:29
invisibility was so broken lol

@Kohato the problem is
you can't validate on just titanic
because many units are titanic
it needs to specifically be on cerastus/dominus/questoris/acastus frames
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 15:16
Mmm those rockcrusher 4speeds
I still love the poncho 400 though
That motor was a torque MONSTER
I still think the t-56 is the best transmission to mate to any small block Chevy though without going esoteric

I miss my project car from before college, but circumstances neccessitated selling it :(
got an RX8 that was relatively new, but the idiot that owned it before had fucked the motor (combo of flooding the rotary, bad maintenance, etc) so it was more or less a perfect RX8 body sans engine
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 15:44
Noice
I have an extreme dislike for rotaries
But it’s of no fault of the motors themselves

and I can imagine the RX8 did rather shift!!

Because in the 80s the merc capris were Fox bodies
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 15:50
I never got a proper 0-60 on it, to my regret
but it was damn near 400hp in that little frame
That’s the Fox body one
Basically a rebadged better looking mustang
imagine that with a super under the hood of an RX-8 and managing somehow to keep it nearly stock aside from a slimline super intake (slot-type) along the hood
at least looking stock

@FarseerVeraenthis yeah apparently the US market Fox Capri was just that, US only
The euro/UK Capri was always quasi-cortina based
I always wanted one of these
Drop a 5.0 in it and MMMMMMMMMMM

sounds groovy to me
and I actually did complete an auction on eBay for a 4x4 Sierra
but while arranging to pick it up I received a message that unfortunately it had been "stolen" from the garage it was being stored at so I couldn't complete the auction
well, the collection

Did you at least get the money back?

Jan 24 16:00
I'm pretty sure the dude expected the bidding to take of, and when it didn't he realised that he hadn't set a Reserve and was basically giving the car away
(well, £400, but they are worth more than that)
It was Cash on Collection
so, no harm, no foul
but I was looking forwards to getting one - my dad had one and it was a monster

@WindstormSCR If I validate: "Is FACTION: IK AND IS TITANIC" I shouldn't need any more.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 16:36
you need something to set it to zero as well
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 16:36
Because all IK has is Titanic (Valid for 6CP) or Non Titanic (Not valid for CP)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 16:36
for armigers
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 16:36
Right. IS FACTION IK and IS NOT titanic
more specifically, >2 and <1
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 16:37
right, just remember to make it so that SHD defaults to 3cp in the failover of no ik
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 16:37
more than 2 titanic gives 6, less than 1 gives 0, otherwise gives 3.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 16:37
I'll discard my changes then
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 16:37
Least amount of duplication :D
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 16:37
and go make a cup of tea
stuff the IK faction tag in GST then
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 16:37
And mostly I don't want to introduce categories that are not actually keywords on the tag
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 16:38
Enjoy, I'll do a QA pass once you push just to make sure it works in all configs
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 16:38
Cool :D
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 16:38
which reminds me
I need to go through all my Cats and double check that CP costs are in where they need to be
and make the fucking DE patrols thing work
that's going to be a trip
though I'm pretty sure I can do that one in the DE cat
if it can work how I think
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 16:41
DE Patrols?
like for the CP display?
Could shove the Faction: DE into GST and change the name there
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

probably just add an entry to the DE catalogue and validate off the number of patrols you have
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 16:58
Easy peasy :D

Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 24 17:00
ah, you're changing the detachment name. i was looking at the "Detachment CP" and thinking it looked the same lol
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 17:00
Yea, I still dont' like that entry - i'll take a look at cleaning it up in IK next.
But changing detachment name is still needed for IK too, so this works
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 17:32
@Mad-Spy I can rig this for chaos knights too if you want to go back to the normal detachment
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 17:53
As for the actual point cost counter
image.png
This adds up costs cleanly without extra entries I think
But, That's not something I can implement without discussion first since the CP counter is added in at a GST level to every cat.
Also, Any reason there's 2 of them in the GST?
"Detachment CP" and "Battle-forged CP"
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 18:08

So in all - what I'd like to do is:

GST - Remove Detachment CP from being required in every cat on a non changeable basis, Add "Faction: Imperial Knights" and "Faction: Questor Traitoris" (In case @Mad-Spy wants to move back to the normal SHD), change SHD name based on titanic count in the above two factions.
Then in IK and Necrons, add in CP costs at the Household Traditions/Dynastic Code level so it is seamless and requires no additional entries added to lists.

Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 18:18
Ik and Crons you guys probably don't care :p but I wanted to make sure on GST things before I change them.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:16
@kohato please no
thats a whole fuckload of unneeded duplication and tying things together that arent in rules
and has a BIG readability problem since the header changes, but “detachment cp” doesnt
it means EVERY catalog will have to have the CP garbage baked in
indtead of JUST the gst
its fundamentally problematic, and you didn’t read at all what I posted lat night
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:20
On the flip side, It's very ... not clean to have something forced on all cats like that.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:20
nothing about CP tracking is clean
its a fucking hackjob that sucks
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:21
Yep
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:21
but it works, and works with the minimum possible workload on all other maintainers at present
not “drop this non-copyable gigantic conditional set onto a place it shoukdn’t even belong”
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:22
What I linked is all GST links so should copy with out issue actually.
but that's an aside.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:22
as for detachment and battle forged: you only get battle forged once on the roster level
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:23
Ah right - I'm tracking now
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:23
detachment happens for every single one, so if you have three, you need cp tracks for each but the +3 from battleforged only once
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:23
I was thinking of them as the same for some reason
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:24
so can you please put the knights CP changes into detachment CP instaed of a different modifier
or we’ll just get more bugs
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:24
It'll need to stay in the detachment re-namer as well
but that's fine
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:25
It sucks, but shit like force-level CP fuckery will have to be done in GST
we can rip it all out and make it clean on v2.dragon or whatever
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:26
Yea, I've lost all hope for that version
Jon seems to have stopped caring about the app.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:27
but for now there has actually been some positive feedback from comp people and community about BS showing detachment CP in nfo
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:27
Oh I agree showing the CP totals is great.
I'm just not a fan of the presentation and not being able to fix it :(
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 19:28
I wonder
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:28
same, but it is what it is
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 19:28
Might Jon be maintaining radio silence for other reasons?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:29
who knows
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:29
As a developer operating a subscription level application, I can't see an acceptable reason to go pure blackout
If he were still on a pro purchase? sure, he still accepts subscription money for a product he has seemingly abandoned.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:29
@Kohato didn’t you get a response from him recently?
might be time to attempt to make contact
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:31
A token "Yea, I'll take a look" - the new version hasn't been updated on git in 7 months.
Sorry if I sound crass, I don't expect devs to cowtow to every demand, but it irks me to see things like subscriber passes getting time out errors and an application not being updated for months.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 19:34
I’m wondering if maybe he’s NDA’d.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:35
Like working on the official GW product?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:36
I hope GW doesn’t buy bs, because well, they can’t even get combat roster right and the official AoS points thing is a mess
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 19:36
@Kohato that’s what I’m thinking maybe
He’s somehow involved in a official GW product)
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:37
Here's hoping GW is prepared to support it if that's the case.
Because they're 0/2 for correct support on tools at the moment.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 19:38
Agreed
But I mean they contracted rich boyland (dude behind helsreach) for BA show
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:40
what makes me laugh
is yes there will be the framework
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:40
True, reaching out to community figures for official things is great, I'm a fan of that.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:41
but a lot of the current BS “magic” is done in here to make the rramework tick
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 19:41
What if they’re leaning into that to fix the official builders?
@WindstormSCR agreed
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:41
Hey I'd love that
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 19:42
But we all know if I’m right gw’s still getting the short end of the stick since we all make it work
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:44
Like I said, support is what is needed.If they're prepared to support it, in whatever form, it can work fine.
Hell the current AOS/40k list makers would be fine if they kept up support.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:47
tbh
I’d help do the support for a pittance, because I want something that works
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:49
Sadly, offers like that are nonstarters when it comes to a published product, unless the product is offered as an open ended framework (like BS)
Cause I think most of us here would too :p
Also wat wat wat?
The newest 2.xx build from back in june: Game Systems can no longer import Catalogues (leads to too many problems)
Well fuck a duck I thought that was the whole point of the new version
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 19:54
no, it was catalogs importing other catalogs
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 19:55
Ohh alright
Whew
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 20:20
@WindstormSCR
About to commit the GST changes
just so you know what did change - the Force name change I linked earlier, and then this:
image.png
Validates fine in IK and doesn't activate in Necrons
as intended
you'd said you wanted to validate too :D
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 20:29
IK has the CP costs correct in the strats/WT as well now - doing crons so those will both be fully implemented :)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 20:32
:+1:
I'll be doing DE/CWE/Custodes and others tonight, just checking that everything has cp costs where needed
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 20:33
Huh, crons don't have a +CP WT
sad day
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 20:34
So #4503 - ok, fair it’s a bug
Why the fuck are you not taking punisher cannons?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 20:34
older model witha fixed loadout maybe?
I built my old one before punishers were a thing
and 4x MRP used to be a common-ish loadout
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 20:35
And crons done.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 24 20:38
Fair I guess
Earl Bishop

Jan 24 20:38
If Iain wants to move back to a normal SHD for Chaos Knights, he should be able to piggy back off of my IK And Groups
for CP and name changes.

@DrTobogganMD
Jan 24 23:43
Fuck I tried at like 10p the other night and gave up
Also wind. What if you have a multi detachment.
Does it count those?
I'll take another look tomorrow at work and see if I can make sense of it when I'm awake
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 23:48
it does
do you want me to do it?
I've done space marines and Craftworlds no issue
I think I can wrangle orks after dinner
the biggest part is just getting the warlord trait logic in

I was going to say I'm neck-deep in stuff until LVO
WindstormSCR

I don't mind doing it so it's standard across cats and there are examples to work off for furute
also
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 24 23:50
Yes sir please do
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 23:50
the method I'm currently using is future-proofed so any faction with them will just be able to have new stuff slotted in to the SSEgs
if they released a surprised space marine one right now I could bang it in in 10min
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 24 23:51
Well that's fucking awesome man. Good work!
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe is continually impressed with what manages to be accomplished here.

just 3 entries, 1 for the WLT and one for the detachment itself, 1 for the relic

Also
Have we heard a word from Jon concerning the supporter passes? Or v2.leprechaun?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 24 23:55
also
while I'm making with the updates
should I just do a pass on all cats for CP costs on relic strats?
just to head off a likely annoying shotload of bugs
