I'm still on the fence about a 3rd knight
I might do it once my inquisitorial section is done if GSC looks like too big a project

Gsc Knight. Do eet
That would look cool
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 01 01:14

preceptor magnetized to all questoris variants

That's how Tau players got their rep in 7e :/
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 01 02:21
What, you think that rep has changed?
There's a reason the word Tauhard is in my vocabulary

I play Tau...I was not prepared for that bug report...

I'm still trying to figure out why you'd want no-guns crisis
Will Pattison

Melee Crisis
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 01 14:31
I assume the burst cannon costs points, so he just wants to shave those few points?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 01 14:31
in that case, just choose a different unit
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 01 14:31
"I'm sorry, I didn't understand you. Did you mean 'don't ever get a crisis suit in melee'?"
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 01 14:32
they probably just found an edge case that wasnt supported, and wanted to feel clever by reporting it
that's what a lot of RaW-fuckery discussions devolve into
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 01 14:34
if you're saving 8pts per model, that's an extra firewarrior each
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 01 14:35
See, people like that are why I hear voices in my head saying things like, "it's time to cleanse the city, Joey! Time to cleanse the city! Wash your hands in the blood of the damned and let your great work begin!"
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 01 14:37
or just dont take the unit and save 81pts???
if you want a unit that does literally nothing, you can do a lot better than no-weapon-crisis
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 01 14:38
How about, "Don't do stupid shit that makes people wish retroactive abortions were a thing"?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 01 14:40
I think that's enough hate for one morning, we closed it, time to move on
@GenWilhelm you get to join the "oh fuck warlord traits logic" crew with me
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 01 14:40
what's up?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 01 14:40
because apparently there is a DE style "primus, magus and patriarch can each have a WLT"
strat
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm

!!FUN!!
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 01 14:41
feel free to poke at the DE one for ideas if you need it
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 01 14:41
will do :smile:
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 01 14:41
though at least you're using the same WLT list
not three separate lists
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 01 14:42
idk if that makes it easier or harder
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 01 14:54

Yeah, you're right. I was editing my first draft of Sisters feedback, and doing so has made me cranky
My apologies
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 01 14:59
Anyone know of a spot to grab epubs of the two current necromunda books?
there's a campaign starting soon at my local and I'd really like to get a feel for the rules before I decide to jump in or not
and they aren't cheap books, at all
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 01 15:44
If you want a good laugh, take a look at these homebrew Sisters rules for KT.
22pt Canoness anyone? 7pt Crusaders? The guy who lost to this seemed to think he lost because they forgot some rules...
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Feb 01 15:49
22pts for an effective SM captain 4++ and everything ? riiiiight
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 01 15:55
I also like the 7pt Crusaders which are 18pts in 40k. 8pts for 4+/3++ with a power sword!
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 01 16:09
the crusaders are 11pts once you add on their wargear
probably still too little for a storm shield and power sword
and basic sisters randomly get access to a plasma gun?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 01 16:16
yeah, Crusaders are 26pts inc. gear in 40k. (although I'm not sure why they don't have an SSE for the shield in the cat, just a link to the profile?)
they should easily be 18-20 points in Kill Team. A Black Shield, which has a better profile and access to SIA, is 21pts.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 01 16:17
Because it's not optional, I think
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 01 16:18
It has an SSE for the Power Sword, which is equally not optional.
maybe because there's no premade Collective Storm Shield entry.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 01 16:28
are they explicitly equipped with on in the codex, or is it just listed as an ability?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 01 16:42
@WindstormSCR check your DM :)

just to chime in on android 8.0...
It sucks balls.
I had to hand my phone in for repairs since the update screwed it over in a major way. I'd be not so surprised if it fudged with some people phones in a way that made BS stop working correctly...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 01 17:49
Android 9 its nice though
But that's on vanilla Android on a g phone
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 01 21:56

might be, dunno if it will roll out to my s7 tho

on another note, BFG2 is pretty awesome
I just miss a bit ship costumisation, but it plays really well

WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 01 22:06
I've been enjoying tyranids
people in rank don't know how to deal with crew depletion
at all
or how to deal with ships that can rapidly cause it within 4500 units
fought one guy using admech who I think was confused why his ark ran out of crew when he let it get in range of 3 feeder tendril escorts and a bio-tentacle hiveship
just 4 troop damage per second plus a boarding party and a boarding aircraft wave :^)
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 01 22:13
yeah, I'm loving feeder tentacles in the campaign.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 01 22:34
still in den imperium campaign... Just got Renown 7 and unlocked GC's. I tried to resist the game and wait for a sale, so I'm a bit behind the curve :P
my hatred for eldar has reached new levels though. The satisfaction when you catch the buggers is unrivavled however... EAT MACRO CANNON SHELLS FUCKERS!
