I would love different coloured dice and yes the symbol being a 1 not a 6 makes me twitch

Enjoyed the game as I always do. After Orks turn 1 I felt like it was lost, the sieze, chefs dice rolling and the orks weak turn 1 seemed just too much. Loved the game, got to be honest chef saying about 15 times “my list is not optimal” and the mild complaining about nearly everything in his list was not ideal.

Some Green Salamander TT dice would be great.

Alpha strike potential in this edition is very brutal. Not sure why Iain charged the rhino and razorback……oops I wasn’t supposed to comment on that. Chef’s dice rolls were insane and the Stormtalon’s are worth their weight in gold. They really tipped the game in Chef’s favor. Great BR as usually guys. I love Iain’s speed freaks but I’d like to see a proper Ork horde on the channel…..soon I hope. Some blue dice would be nice…especially if 1k Sons are in the works. I would support that life choice.

Awesome game guys! I would go for some midnight blue clad dice.

Excellent BR guys. Loved it! I may have to purchase a second Stormtalon…

As for dice, I vote for Ultramari… er, I mean royal blue with white pips. Brother Captains Artemis and Marcius (mine) deserve their own colours surely? :p

Great bat-rep, always love seeing some orky banter! On the note of dice, I suggest red and brass tabletop tactics dice so marked for death is maximum blood for the blood god!

The Shooting at the beginning of the game from the las cannons on the razorbacks into the defkoptas got me thinking about how to handle shooting at a unit of multi-wound targets with multiple multi-wound weapons, eg. 10 chaos marines, 8 bolt pistols 2 melta guns, shooting at a unit of 3 wound models, the priority would be (rolling weapons individually ofcourse). > Shoot the 1st melta. > (If the 1st melta scored 2 wounds or less), finish off the wounded model with bolt pistols, then save the rest of your bolt pistols. > (If the 1st melta scored 3… Read more »

I’d so buy some Tabletop Tactics dice in red, maybe with a black streak is or that asking to much? For the Serpent! For Saim Hann! For the Craftworld!

Also great Battle Report as ever, so glad I’m paying for on demand.

Haha, is it just me who thinks it’s somewhat absurd that just two guys have 12 shots?! I guess I should be glad that warbikers no longer re-roll!

Hey Chef, have you considered running some Scout Bikers? I’d love to see a battle report for 8th with them, I haven’t seen them in play yet but I think they could be pretty good.

Guys, it’s almost 30mins in and you have yet to even start playing! I *love* banter/discussion but there’s sometimes a thing called *too much* banter or discussion. I hate to seem rude; but this is an on demand game, and while I’m sure everybody here loves to hear musings on our favourite hobby please, have mercy and start the fight! Poor Ian for one is an Ork, he needs to smash ‘eads in! We need to see ‘eads getting smasht in!

The Chef whipping up some good dice rolls there. I too had a bit of a 7th Ed moment where I thought those damned S4 choppas are just gonna wreck those tanks’ AV10… let alone the klaws.

My eyes were opened regarding the Stormtalons.

Also, I do like deep red dice. Or a nice grey.

I think a nurgle green or a nice royal purple would be nice colours for the dice range.

I had the Waaaagh of my life, and I owe it all to you.

Also, more Chef!

I’m a thousand sons player. How would I go about getting a chance to play against someone on your show?

*side tangent* One thing to consider with 8th edition Orks: a lot of people act like 30-boy ork mobs are some insurmountable morale-proof obstacle. What they’re forgetting is that, at least pre-codex, orks don’t have options for ‘eavy armor, so those 30 boys are relying on their good ol’ t-shirt saves (which, granted, is at least better than it was in 7th, where they only got saves vs. guard armies, since everything else was AP5 or better for standard infantry fire). But even then, your boyz die super fast with only a t-shirt save. And once they start dying, they’re… Read more »

Ian’s luck against the Chef seems to be the equal of Bones luck against you Lawrence!

I would definitely buy some purple TT dice, they’d go nice with my Kabal.

…you do know that Siege Studios already spoiled your Thousand Sons army, right? But I’m still eagerly awaiting the debut of my favorite 40k army on the channel. In related news, my Daemons of Tzeentch army, which I’ve built to complement my Thousand Sons, will be finished this week or next 😀
