Fantastic conclusion to a great campaign. Really cant wait for the next one. Although i think with the emergance of bonecam and the soon to be released beardcam could the next champaign be more of a dawn of war soulstorm esq format. Whereby there are a number of factions vying control of an area. You could even include a random loot drop, expanded experience and death table, you could even have areas giving buffs/debuffs to armies. It could truly be an epic champaign!

Epic. After a 20 year absence from 40k, I find myself digging out my old armies, re-arming, and cleaning off dust. You guys really should do more of these narrative type games, so much fun to watch.

More campaigns please!!

Gentlemen this narrative campaign was amazing. the pre game effects were great, i loved the rain effect, the story was amazing. 2 complaints, i want more narratives and i personally like watching the dice rolls. all your hard work and effort have payed off and this campaign alone was worth every cent.

Simply Epic!!! Well done everyone involved!! A truly spectacular end to this campaign!
The surprise appearance of Guilliman was awesome as well but im glad it was Artemis who took control of the key moments throughout the battle!!
The intros and ending videos were incredible as well!!!
Cant wait for the next campaign!

Wow, what a singularly unique experience! I have never seen anything like this before! It was the perfect marriage of story telling, tabletop Warhammer 40k, and visual effects. Games Workshop should hire you guys to produce more content like this. Please make more of these narrative campaigns!

Slightly late to this party to end all parties (or in fact to start a series of legendary ones!), but knew I needed to give it my full attention. Like everyone else I have been absolutely blown away, and I know this is only just going to keep getting better! Perfectly demonstrates why most of us are in this hobby and why you all are the undisputed kings of making this content!! Thank you for all your hard work, truly awesome outcome!!! (and other hyperbolic statements that don’t cover it properly…)

Boom…..Knocked it out of the park guys….Awesome stuff. I’m only just getting back in to GW and 40k after a very long break and having your battle reports to watch has made it all so much more epic.

Guys loved it all, this was an epic finally. Seeing Guilliman appear in Artimis’ darkest hour…. a thing of beauty. Would love to see more campaigns in the future, Maybe featuring the Spider himself?

Was expecting this to be epic, but that was off-the-charts level epic! Superb job guys. Really looking forward to the next one.

Perfect timimg! Watching this sitting in Inverness airport after a five day canoe/survival trip and using my 3hours free wifi…… it’s going to be tight.

Wow…speechless…Whole story its the best hobby movie that I have watched! I absolutely loved it. Thank you Lawrence, Bone, Chef and all others who played part in this peace of art! Music smashed it! I hope with our continued support and your passion we will enjoy more of those epic tales on a big screen in our living rooms! Gulliman…what a twist?! I thought it might be some Death Company, not Primarch?! Awesome!
PS> I might tattoo Artemis somewhere buahaha!
Cheers, Duckbreast 🙂

That was amazing, the best video on the channel. Absolutely loved every minute (all 180 of them!) The cinematic fight between all of the generals was a moment when all the stars and planets aligned, an epic battle! (Semi-Spoilers) I believe Guilliman has fleet doesn’t he? Could potentially re-rolled a charge against the Obelisk, not that it matter was just something of note. And I presume he did not confer the +1 charge distance from his warlord traits because Artemis was still the warlord? I could almost imagine Artemis dragging Sekhmet by his crown and throwing him and the bomb… Read more »

That Was Phenomenal. So glad I discovered your battle reports, I’ve been binge watching all your content and this just takes it to the next level! Well done to all you guys. Keep it up! I want more 🙂

Guys that’s was a magnificent finale and an enthralling bat rep in its own right, even if I was rooting for the subjects of the Silent King…and the reason for the delay is now clear, and the wait was absolutely worthwhile! I’m really looking forward to your next narrative works – keep going chaps!

I don’t know what to say, I was riveted, the entire three hours on the edge of my seat!

Almost makes me want to play Space Marines… almost 😛

All this shot and edited by one man… no mere man could do this but clearly a Primarch!

All hail Lord Primarch Lawrence “The Spider” Baker!

This Final has absolutely blown me away…Thank you guys for that masterpiece of a campaigne.

I wouldn’t usually comment on a video but after sitting here for essentially the length of a Lord of the rings film I can say I was thoroughly entertained! The visuals make it stand leaps and bounds ahead from any other batrep channel that I watch and like you said you couldn’t have written what happened. (Spoilers don’t read if you haven’t watched!)…. Especially with Artemis getting the killing blow on Sekhmet Ra then running to get the bomb, you could just imagine it all slow motion style everyone cheering then out of the rubble Bone’s spider trying to get… Read more »

Oh wow that ending was of another level. Thank you very much for the effort and passion on this! I do think you guys were wrecked by the end! Maybe shorter game for the next one? hahaha. Other than that, I’d love to see more of these, but maybe lesser point games! Maybe a Deathwatch campaign? Would be interesting to see Artemis in a lesser role.

Keep the great job up!

Top notch job guys, and the story sequences just got better and better, I grinned like an idiot when RowBoat came down. Also hats off to Bone and Chef, they were fantastic antagonists and made it a load of fun. A thought for another campaign, make the most of the personalities you have in the studio. Imagine a Soulstorm style planet conquest, slow burn, over a bunch of batreps. Wouldn’t have all the fancy intros everytime, but man would it be fun to see the rivalries develop between say… Lil Dragon and Beard fighting over a planet where the winner… Read more »

Woa woa woa, what’s that Tactical Doctrine on a model without the Chapter Tactics rules? I hear someone saying “you can do it in all models?”

Thank you Lawrence and Team Tabletop Tactics! This was a truly epic story which I have been honoured to have witnessed and have seen evolve over time. Despite all the fun content you produce, I think this campaign has pushed your channel to another level. It has been great watching and I hope to see the start of a next narrative campaign soon.
