I hope we get to see the Colonel’s list in a Tactica battle report at some point 😀

Very Nice! I really enjoyed this top-to-bottom overview of the mighty Astra Mil… *BLAM* Imperial Guard Codex.
I’ve been really enjoying testing the water with some different builds with my IG army- I have had some crushing defeats and some steamroller victories- as well as a few close calls thrown in!
Looking forward to seeing some battle reports with the Imperial Guard. Shame about the Colonel going missing in action- but good luck to him in the Midlands (my home region.)
If you ever want a Guard Opponent give me a shout 😉

Any chance you guys can have these lists typed out? Sorry for the request but it’s a little difficult for me to follow along as you guys talk it up. Thanks

The amount of damage you could do with a good Tallarn list could be crazy. Leman Russes moving and shooting with no penalties and taking objectives, plus some cheap Arty support, and ambushing with a Baneblade could consistently keep your opponent off balance or bottled up that there is not much they can do back. Just focus their AT and it could turn into a slaughter against a fair few armies.

Colonel’s list is absolute filth lol. The addition of ratling spam is a very scary spin on HWT style lists. BUT, we all know how strong the HWT spam is right now. That being said, I understand much better how to play against it after watching part 3. As always, thanks for all the insights and entertainment, i’ll keep watching them as long as you guys keep making them. Cheers!

Awesome videos guys, great background while I’m painting. I know a lot of the other Youtubers were concerned about giving away too much of the codexes because GW would come after them. You don’t seem to be too worried about that. I was wondering if this is because this content is behind a paywall or because it came out later or what?

Could…. not…. stop…. laughing when you guys were working out the amount of Lascanons!!! What a vid and what a list! Totally loving these videos. Perfect for what they should be. Just two guys sitting that chatting and bouncing ideas around about the Codex! Catch up soon.

Really good video. And Lawrence is correct I would not like that List to have first turn. To fix the points in my list I would drop 2 units of 5 Ratlings and a Company commander which would give me the 100pts to update the points of the other 50 Ratlings Also to clear up the order confusion i was talking about ‘Forward for the Emperor’ which allows a unit that has advanced in the movement phase to still shot. The list is very strong with Take Aim meaning all the Lascannons will reroll all failed misses and then the… Read more »

Ouch all those lists sound nice, would be good to see the colonels list go up against a hormagaunt heavy list I think, think a seasoned nid player could make a really strong list with a lot more models with support and still be a brigade. Its that 6 inch pile in and consolidate that’s the thing. Coming from a craftworlds perspecitive I’m struggling to think of a list that’d stand up to most top tier guard lists, more thinking to do 🙂 These have been great cheers again!

One thing, i think the Colonel could potentially look at doing to save points, is swap some of the ratling squads to command squads with snipers. They are 13 points cheaper for a squad of 4 snipers that can then benefit from the cadian re-roll and also get orders on top of that. (plus, it gives him a great excuse to use his command squads with camo cloak models! :P) I’m curious as to how you’d match these lists up against something like Eldar (including the 9 basilisks idea), and, something like a Tyranid list that expects to pretty much… Read more »

Really like this format for the tactica videos. Feels a lot more thought out and in depeth this way. And have to say that with the Chef beeing back those mini rants and spin of’s are both inevetable and appriciated 😀
Looking forward to the Craftworlds and the Tyranids!

loved this guys great one I think three was just right any less would have been rushed. Really looking forward to more of these. Nice to see the chef back and on top form as well.

Just a note boys – I wouldn’t declare your second relic on your list. you should list the “free one” but the second/ third relic is a stratagem at the start of the game. If you see your playing chaos you would obviously want the cadian relic over the Aquilla, if you wanted more board control maybe the dagger etc.. Just provides additional flexibility

So, uh, maybe go over and format the lists to be readable before filming? 😉

I enjoy these videos overall very much, and It’s good to have chef back to mix it up a bit! However I feel stretching it out this is too much, broader strokes guys and less rants on minor things. Also, a few times you guys interrupt eachother in some of the AM videos, feel undynamic.
