Hello guys, delighted to be signed up on the website, however with the embedded player used on the site, I cannot cast this to my TV… Watching on my phone just doesn’t have the same feel, is this something you guys are looking into?

Can’t wait to see the Necrons codex and if things will change. The ghost arcs are really OP the way they tank and how effective they are against infantry.
Another battle over after 1 turn of shooting … (lets consider the first necrons turn didn’t happen lol)
Clearly the Exorcists list wasn’t optimized as well

A little tip for the little dragon. Change the assault marines into vanguards. They cost more or less the same. Here is an example: I ran assault marines with the following, jump packs, two plasma pistols, eviscerator and plasma pistol and power sword on the sarge. That costs 127 points. Now if I change that to vanguards and switch the eviscerator with a power fist it costs 127 points. What this means is I go from -4 to -3 AP on the eviscerator becoming a power fist but I gain 1 attack per marine! So just food for thought because… Read more »

Great battle report! I’d never seen the Exorcists before and it was great to see more of Dragon vs. Lawrence.

Always love the great batreps guys! Glad to see the Exorcists back on the channel, definitely need to fine-tune the list though, maybe at least a battalion for a couple more CPs. I think as a whole, you guys need to slow down the charge and assault phases a bit to give the new 8th edition rules a bit more credit and show off some of the new subtleties: -remember that you only need to move within 1″ of an enemy unit in the charge phase and that you no longer have to move the shortest path, ALWAYS roll the… Read more »

Really hoping for more Eldar Battle reports or Taticas for them. There was a ton of Deathguard so im hopeful.

I absolutely love Little Dragons models, the paint job is excellent, really good. Love Little Dragon’s humor proper dark and cynical love it lol Lawrence is a beast when it comes to games and I don’t think i’ve seen him lose. Its like he is the dice whisperer 😀 lol. Another good game and cant wait for the next cast of players.

The Spider rolls like my nephew. So frustrating playing against him. What I do is play out a story in my head. I commit myself to watching the game and enjoying the story more than worrying about winning. Little Dragon is going to be fine. He is just sadly using some units that are not entirely points efficient. Great game though! Keep it up! Also, Little Dragon’s army looks stunning! Really great job painting up those marines!

Loving those Necrons they look brilliant would love to see some death marks and flying croissants added to the army and dare i suggest Flayed ones? I never see them but personally i find them to be one of the coolest units.

How are those Assault marines able to deep strike so close to the enemy that they can use their flamers…..hmmmm 😉 flamer = 8″ range……deep strike = further away than 9″….. or did he use the Raven Guard strategm to deploy them?

There were quite a few instances in that turn 2 where you forgot the -1 to hit from the Raven Guard CT, particularly against the Devs that would have meant fewer casualties. Forgettting ATSKNF on top made things a lot worse.

On the other hand, my dice turned up today, after watching the rolling here I’m looking forward to using them!

so its really the first time you play the necrons? or its the first film time to play them?

I know the pain of having put the work in 7 Droppods and having them collect dust now 🙁
Fun game as always.

I would say the Exorcists need some rerolls… maybe Capitan/Lieutenant combo?

You forgot the moral reroll for the marines – They have

“and they shall know no fear”

Martin Buch

And they shall know no fear!!! and the -1 to hit the Exorcists got forgotten quite often 😉
Lovely paint job on the Exorcists! And if one is bringing centurions in a RG army, bring assault cents. Such a mean combo with meltas and “strike from the shadows”. 5 inch charge on top of 6 melta shots in melta range. Statistically enough to take down a (front line) Land Raider turn one, under the assumption of no one dies to overwatch and charge is succesfull.

Jesus those green dices are sick!!! I absolutely need those to roll like a boss… style is the most important thing in the table!!!!

Unlucky little dragon still a hard fought battle so right about getting rid of the drop pods and I’d love to a landraider painted up in exorcist colours 🙂

I would drop the eviscerators, get another special weapon on the assaulties. Definately scrap the pods, get some razorbacks, get guiliman, fill your razorbacks with 1las tactical marines and get a stormraven aswell. Then what you need is a makeup artist to make yourself look more like lawrence (to reach the soul of the dice; I believe his apperance is key). Additionally you may need to practise lacking humor, as this is surely important when playing 40k as you can clearly tell from the spider.

Did you forget that Astartes get to reroll their morale checks?

I know nothing about video editing, but wouldn’t it be cool if you could put a display on the video with current scores, command points remaining, and turn number, or something like that?

Great to see one of the old guard on the channel, takes me back to those realm of battle days and snow bases… good stuff

Lil’Dra needs more Captain Silas Alberec! Also, you forgot the re-roll for marines morale with Artemis’s distant cousins Davimis and Nigelimis in turn 2. Those Centurions are nasty, if they can deepstrike, drop a drop pod and grab another squad + Alberec for 2000pts?!

Those two eviscerator Astartes forgot to know no fear!
