Great game! I really enjoyed it. One little detail though: It isn’t first to 10 points to is first to complete 10 Tactical Objectives.

Shouldn’t the forlorn fury stratagem have been used before the game begins and before you know who goes first? That’s the risk in using it, I thought.

Killshot makes the heavy bolters 2dmg aswell so the first tank would have been destroyed by the first predator alone putting the other on at least 6 wounds, but more likely 4 instead of 8.

Celestine couldn’t have intervened as she was > 3″ away. Either that or Sanga moved in a suicidal manner. 🙂

Sanga, activate the assaulting units on your turn 1 charge in the other order next time. 😉

Great battle report – nobody does it better than TTT 🙂 Just pointing out that St C has 6 attacks (she has 7 wounds). Otherwise, great game – thanks for feeding my addiction!

Great banter and battle as always guys, one thing about the mission though that I think you may have played wrong. I think it’s the first to ten tactical objectives and not points? i.e. the amount of points you get (D3, etc) for each tactical objective is irrelevant for the purposes of reaching the magic number 10, it’s how many individual objectives you achieve? Might explain why it was a bit of a quickie! I got a bit confused as well when I first played it.

Great bat rep :). Those 2 armies shine! Am i right to understand the predator stratagem applies to all weapons of the predators? You guys have applied it only to the twin assault canon. The first one would have then been shot straight by the first predator.

Also…between Cast of Players and his Battle Reports, Beard is by far the WORST roller of dice I have ever seen! What did you do to deserve this in your prior life Beard?!?! Haha

Mattie Dubbs

Did you guys do morale in turn 1 for blood angels? that one death company squad lost a ton and would most likely fail their test?

Great vid guys!

Awesome report guys, thanks! You just keep on improving, I am greatly looking forward to the next match! One thing I was wondering, tactics wise, maybe it would’ve been better to give Beard first turn, as most of his units have a very short range, this couple with trying to hide from those organ guns would’ve ensured the BA remaining largely unscathed. Now with the way the DC charged forward they provided a neat little speedbump for the sisters to roll over. To be air, keeping back and waiting for the enemy is one of the hardest things to do,… Read more »

Mr. Sanger
Love your Army, love your matches. If I may suggest, Blood Angel psychic powers are highly under-rated in my opinion. Perhaps augmenting your list with a few psychers would be effective. Something like a librarian dreadnought, several standard librarians, and Mephiston? I think you might find the psychic powers are more useful than the priest and certain units like the tactical squads or more than one Baal predator.
Keep up the good work guys. Love your content. Keep the Bang Bang coming! Cheers!

I really like the theme of this Blood Angels list, the big gun line buffed by a captain (and some lieutenants if you drop the priest like you said) combined with a Death Company vanguard; very cinematic

G’day from ‘straya gents. You’d think by some of the comments that people think you lads are robots. I love the shows, not too competitive, a lot of banter, how the hobby should be perceived in my opinion. Exactly why, even though I’ve never played D&D, I REALLY enjoy the Cast of Players show. Welcome back Sanga, being a Flesh Tearers player, (I’m HateWraith on the forums btw) have been waiting to see this report ever since it came up on a “Live from the studio” on Facebook. Well ran by Beard, well cut by Bone. You’re not walking BRB’s… Read more »

Hey Lawrence, can you increase the bandwidth for the website? I’m getting massive buffing issues. The videos are getting almost unwatchable. I have the fastest internet available in my country of 100mbs down, but I still can sit and watch a video right through. I’ve even left it paused for an hour and it doesn’t store it up like on You Tube, it will only buffer seconds ahead. If there’s something you can do that would be great.

Edward Harman

Beard, you’re forgetting that Celestine gives an *extra* *automatic* Act of Faith, on top of the army wide one on a 2+, so most turns you could be doing one on her and most likely a different one on another unit. e.g. on turn 3 the Dominions could have got an extra move to get within melting range.

As I said before. Loved the report but now that I have finished it completely. Need to mention few things I noticed. Not sure if anyone mentioned it as there are far too many posts to read. So near the end sanga could not kill the cannoness with the razorback as the innovator was obviously nearest. Also the game does not end when you get 10 points from objectives but when you complete 10 full objectives. However many points. In any case. Keep the games coming and for the love of grotty let beard sleep!!

Stumodelmaker

Shows how powerful the Sisters are if they can win even with those Beard rolls lol. Fun game. Maybe an Ad Mec vs Death Guard match up soon?

Aldo Zetterman

Great match up! And possibly the best post-battle chat! Think that one thing for mr Sanga to consider that if he takes a relic which whole point is to ignore overwatch he should use that to charge that unit in first so as to not having to suffer overwatch on those precious Death Company unit, especially not losing two DC on the multi charge could quite possibly have made all the difference – especially if the +1 to wound on the charge would have been remembered at all times.

Lovely game Mr beard!! Hope to face them at lgt if you are coming and are not bored of it.

Dont you roll Black Rage after wounds have been made, like the old Feel No Pain. So you roll the multiple wounds then roll black rage, not the other way around.

Erik Tasker

also Rob/Sanga, I just want to say, you are a wonderful addition to the team. Your attitude and personality are super warm and positive, they couldn’t have picked a better fellow to sign on. And your army looks lovely! Thanks for being awesome 🙂

Beard, what if you got… <__>… -_-… a few penitent engines…

…and some sisters repentia…

might be dumb to invest in super old models for an army that is constantly being teased to get plastics eventually, AND doesn’t have a codex yet, but DONTCHA JUST THINK THEY’RE SO COOL

Great battle lads! Only thing I spotted that I don’t think anyone else has mentioned is that units in a transport that gets blown up, don’t suffer the D3 mortal wounds in addition to rolling 1’s for models slain

0213 eh? Finally, I now have access to it all. The entire Sanga archives.

Nice Rep! And you are getting better at Filming and Playing Guys! Probs for that. But Celestins Sword gives her +4S in Melee Combat Beard, that would mean she wounds on 2 against the Death Comp. (that would be nearly all in this round). As a Ranged Flamer its S5, but lets say it was the Jetlag ;).
Anyway, keep up the good Work and lookin for those Spiderlysecret new Stuff :D.

I have to say that I love Beardoscope! Beard comes alive when hes behind the camera and much more of your character comes across. In the nicest possible way its nice to see Spider away from the camera as it means hes working on more great projects in the back ground. Excited to see what other great projects you have up your sleeve for the rest of 2018. Yes there where a couple of slip ups on the rules, but nothing that had an enormous impact on the rules. And this isn’t a tactica report so I don’t expect it… Read more »

At 46:12 – you rolled for mortal wounds against Dominions inside the exploding Immolator. But you shouldn’t – they get the normal “die on a 1” for units in transports, but they don’t get hit by the explosion.

Hey i was curious on if the razor back assualt cannons were either bought from forge world/3rd party company, or if you converted them all? Also if you convert them how did you do them and what kits were used?

Go Blood Angels!

You are correct on your use of Kill Shot. The location of the apostrophe means that it effects all of the predators

Owen Cookman

Great game, I don’t know if someone else has pointed it out though but the mission is first to 10 tactical objectives completed, not 10 points, I guess you just count the points in case the game ends and no one has completed 10 cards.

Kabir Iqbal

Loved the batrep, as always, keep up the great content guys!

Quick question / rule clarification: Can you overwatch with flamers if the charge is outside of the flamer’s range?

For example – when you charged the immolator and needed an 8, you’d be outside the weapon’s 8″ range when you started. This came up the other day for me and we couldn’t find anything in the rulebook that addressed this directly.

Franco Nova

Why are you using bolt Pistols on DC? Go Bolters!

Nice battle. Watching was a good way to relax after dealing with emergencies all day.

Most important question; why is Beard wearing his Chaos Lord tshirt when he isn’t playing his Chaos? Shouldn’t Celestine summarily execute him for being a traitorous dog? haha. Always nice to see Beard and Sanga throw it down.

The sisters of battle look like an army of Theresa May clones.

Very nice, love that the sisters are getting some action and the blood angels are probably my favourite power armor wearers. Just as a note on the mission played; it ends at the battle round in wich one player achieves 10 objectives (ie. 10 cards, not victory points) Then you count the victory points wich means you can win even if you’re not the onegetting ten cards done first =) Anyhow, keep up the good work, and nice to se both Bone and Beard making reports as well!

Wounds from exorcists were done incorrect versus those marines ( ~1h time range). It is multi-damage attacks so you kill only 1 model for each shot.

Jonathan Firth

Beard, you should have been using 2 acts of faith a turn – Celestine gives a free one within 6″ and then on 2+ you get an army wide one. Could have brought back some meltas on the doms maybe.

Chris Hughes

Sanga! Beardovision! Wooo! And……did BBone edit this one? I noticed a comment by BBone for a rules error. That Blood Angels list is good, tanks, tanks everywhere, i like it. Maybe less tac squads and use scouts? You can use the scouts for board control and objective camping better than the tac squads, as they can infiltrate at the start.

GemiNaga

Great batrep, welcome back Sanga.

Whilst Beard and Bone have been improving significantly with each battle report, there are still a lot of rules missed, which their opponent isn’t pointing out either – perhaps a third member present or the Spider being the opponent might help with remembering the rules until beard and bone are more comfortable filming and playing?

Robe
Robe

Awesome match up guys! Does the kill shot only affect the main turret weapons? I’d interpret it to be all three that are effected too, pushing that incentive to take three.

In the first turn fight phase – wouldn’t it be better to chose to fight first with the DC squad that was charging those two immolators? It was obvious that after first combat Beard would interrupt the next so he could utilize St Celestine.

Finally, some Blood Angels again! Missed you, Sanga! Definately give Astorath a try, I like him really much. He’s definately more of a fighter than the other chaplains, his Executioners Axe is great. Most of the time I find I dont need the reroll on charge anyway, or the command point reroll is better. Also, Astorath’s model is menacing looking, and his lore is just great. 2018! Bang bang!

Franco Nova
Franco Nova

Yeahhhh the Sanga is back 😀 and vs the Beard non other!

Tom Danvers

Awesome! Always love seeing the Blood Angels on the field! Reckon it’s best to charge the wearer of the Angel’s wing first. If he gets into combat then everyone else can charge without suffering overwatch!
