so we want to do a special theme 2k army of "Imperium Air Cavalry" (boots on the ground/sudden death will not apply) - what would be your top three fliers?

@Thairne just woke up from the Matrix and realised that the nightmares are now a reality .. up is down, truth is lies and someone ate his shoes!

LVO coverage on the GW stream was entertaining ... "Think" it was Justin Lois vs. T'au was the most entertaining ... went full 30 minute meltdown when he advanced his Raven castellan and realised he couldn't use the 3CP strat as it was in a SHA and didn't get full house benefits. ... had denied his T'au opponent a takeback earlier so was denied here in reply ... much popcorn ..

in direct opposition to this Brandon Grant was an absolute Gent and even though he is USA ... I feel we should honour him with full membership to the British Empire! .... so yeah, he's ours now .. get off !

actually after this weekend i'm about to become a nihilist. Or with the Comedian's words - "It's all a joke". Screw literally everything.

Wait. Dude actually went to LVO and didn't know that? I havent played my Knights in 8th ever and even I caught wind of that.... And the instant karmic justice is just comedy gold!

What is a Brandon Grant and why do you wish to colonize it?

he won, I didn't see the final, but watched his semi final on GW stream ... it was a mirror match of Castellan + friends and he even reminded his opponent that his castellan re-rolled vs Titanic ... amongst other instances of just being a Bro! ... so he .. he's British now ... Thanks America for your tithe

I wasn't aware that good sportsmanship is something British claim as a national trait... :P

it isn't ... so we need to re-introduce it via a delicate breeding program where we distil the essence of nice players and ... well .. you don't need to know the details of the process ... but it's totally effective

Wait .. .we have cricket ... no they're tossers too ...
Tennis ... our best player just retired and was probably Scottish but he still counts ... still of a breeding age ?

So re: #4586 I have some time this morning if you want me to do the CP cost thing in GST, unless anyone has a better idea for implementation
@alphalas
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 11 13:56
that was my thought for it as well. move the Brood Brothers "regimental" selection up to the GST, then validate the detachments off it

@GenWilhelm that semi final for brandon was against one of his best friends and someone he introduced to 40k 20 years ago. IN the final he lost his Castellan top of turn 3, didn't get all that much milage out of it the bottom of 1 and 2 yet still managed to win on points

@alphalas on second glance, the better option may be to add a "Brood Brothers CP" instead of the standard detachment CP, and hide normal detachment CP item if the brood brothers tag is present
its a weird one
might actually be best done inside the AM cat after all
with a completely separate item
though part of me suspects GW might be testing this out as an allies rule across the board
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 18:54
since a lot of the reason guard gets taken is cheap CP and relics
so by cutting ally brigades down to 2, and taking away relics, that would kill a lot of incentive to ally guard
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 11 19:06
Good.
If you are bringing a detachment of guard it should be because you want to use the guard
not because you want a free 5/12 cp

Feb 11 19:11
but I'm building scions for my knights+deathwatch :P
tbh I wouldn't care
it would just give me an excuse to make the van saar element a stand alone army
come to think of it, no relics/WLTs would seriously hurt knights too
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 11 19:12
Would it?
Unless that would mean not even by spending CP I guess
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 19:18
let me read brood borthers closer
yep, can't even give relics by CP
or warlord traits by CP
so that would seriously fuck up knights
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 11 19:19
Eh
The only knight lists it'd fuck up would be those that are taking IG to pump CP I think
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 19:20
mostly castellan lists, which are what need gimping
no taking a castellan, giving it a 4++ and relic plasma
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 11 19:21
yep. When you have an absolute assload to spare as IG
I'm fine with this.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 11 19:22
you'd still be able to pump the raven strat, but only 0 or 3 CP from the lance
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Feb 11 22:43
oooh. That culinary monstrosity.
I've seen pictures of turduckalligatorin... yes. Rednecks.
But I'd totally feast on that monstrosity if ever presented to me, American or not :P
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 11 22:44
haha, I never realized it was an american creation since I knew the UK did one with a goose but yea ... made by rednecks in the 80s
