Sorry for reanimating this long dead thread, I’m catching up! But man, this was awesome! And I personally feel that Needs deserved victory here, just a pair of more lucky rolls from Mr. B-Bone here and there and it should have been quite another result. Very close game indeed. Cause this cheesy Ravenwing bull-thing just makes me boil! )) They should be punished!!! Someday! By someone…

Lawrence, I hope you realize that every time someone re-rolls a 2 up save a kitten dies.

Bone made a really good fight of it, that Scream really did a number on the bikers. Once again it does highlight the problems of Tyranids, all the damage output was coming from the Flying Hive Tyrants and some from the Crone’s, the other half of the list didn’t do much at all. Compare that to the Raven Wing where everything was dangerous.

Really looking forward to 8th, that’ll be when I next break out my nids to see how they do.

Bone why didn’t you charge with the Melon to Samael and CO. That thing is a beast in close combat

Minute 1:10:00 rending on the Tervygon shooting through termagaunts no 3+ cover ? 🙁

That Psychic scream was sick! I love that power. Also, just a reminder that the plasma talons do “get hot” on 1’s from the final reroll to hit. A few armor saves from that were not taken, at least on camera.

That was a great game! I thought the Tyranids had it a couple times. I love seeing the nids on the channel, I feel like they give most armies a run for their money. Bone is always entertaining, as well. Thanks guys!

Lawrence, I just wanted to say that the amount of 6’s you roll is disgusting. Absolutely bloody disgusting. I can see why Bones (and I assume the others) jink even though statistically they shouldn’t worry… because your rolling is absolutely bloody disgusting. I shudder to think how much lambs blood you have on your hands due to all the ritual sacrifices you must make (you do at least eat them afterwards right? It’s clearly a waste to let so much meat fester!). I am actually surprised you don’t successfully Deny The Witch on every attempt… That being said, and far… Read more »

Hi lawrence as a fellow dark angels player I’m loving the new army! Beautifully put together and nice to see the flyers represented. As you’re new to the army I thought I’d mention that the dark shroud only gives models stealth, not stealth and shrouded (the dark shroud has shrouded but not stealth). So normal bikers get a 3+ reroll not 2+. If you take the dark shroud formation with landspeeders then that unit gets stealth + shrouded. That said fantastic bat rep as always, keep the (bad) jokes coming 🙂

I really thought the Raven were in bad shape after the psychic phase when three units were erased but the RW are tough birds to snare. It was a murder (of crows!)

Wow, that’s so cool! Though it’s late evening over here and I am likely gonna fall asleep halfway through, I’ll try my best. So exciting!

Sorry Lawrence but I was laughing so hard at the mental image of that Flyrant jinking his way through a whole round of shooting. Hah! The jinkers have become the jinked!

Another great bat rep! Thanks T
