The Ultramarines return to the studio with all the power a Gladius Strikeforce can muster! But will they be a
match for the deadly Ulthain Ghosts?

I think thats the second time the Chef has used the Ghosts and lost!

I’m OK with allies when it comes to fluffy lists, running multiple types of Eldar together is perfectly fine and in most cases is not going to be as strong as Scatbike spam + Wraithknights but things like Riptide Wing with Eldar should just never be allowed.

Lawrence usually wins when his force has superior fire power in terms of numbers. His Nids have like 6 people that have 12ish shots, Dark Eldar has venoms with 10+ shots each, Ultramarines have Grav, 7 Lascannons, and a shit ton of Bolter fire. I’d bet the house on Lawrence if his force has more shoots than the opponent’s force regardless of the matchup.

Unless you’re playing with a newbie who literally only has those models to use, people shouldn’t be running Allies of Convenience, as… Read more »


Nice game, fun to watch. I could copy much of my comment from the last scars vs. admech battlereport ;). I don’t think that Marine Grav-Weapons on a non-relentless Platform are a good Idea. With just a tiny bit of cheese you could give your captain a ctaphracti terminator armour an stick him with one of the dev units and nearly double their effectiveness (he gets relentless for the armour and will give it to the unit). Plus you get an invuln save in the unit for a bit of resilience. A bit cheeky but I wouldn’t be ashamed taking… Read more »
