Wasn’t the exalted sorcerer on the landing pad killed by Artemis? Was that forgotten?

I’m a bit late watching this one. Surprised no one has commented that Magnus’ super smite on turn two should target the closest enemy model like any other smite! that means those ten mortal wounds that hit the storm raven should have killed Guilliman. When Guilliman got up again Magnus would have then finished him in combat. So no more re-rolls for the rest of them game from Guilliman and no more Guilliman himself… woopsie lol. Still a fun game though, would rather you guys made the odd rule mistake and had fun than have everything perfect but lose the… Read more »

As always, you guys bring the fun, and I was actually laughing out loud, my wife now thinks I have lost the plot.
Thanks guys.
But seriously, epic game and you both show how 40k can be very fun with a competitive edge to it.

Were you not tempted to spend 3pts and have girlyman right again in turn 1? Could have perhaps finished off the big red guy.

Ben Goddard

why could the exalted sorcerer re-roll that 1 to make it harder to deny? The beard is always cheating need the spider there to keep his choas ways at bay! otherwise great battrep!

As they are going through the Ultras army list… my mind is stuck on the tower of power to Beard’s left. Some crazy Thousand Sons power to stack predators like that.

Gents, your batreps are just getting better and better!

Great game gents! Really fun to watch. Love seeing how much fun you two have together!

So I am not sure how magnus smite hit the storm raven when he was in base contact with guilliman and tiggy. Beard should have super smote Bobby G, then had he gotten back up wrecked him in assault, that pretty much seals the game. Still a funny game, you guys are such a pleasure to watch lol. Thanks so much fellas.

I thought Psychic hood was a 12″ range for the plus 1 to deny? Not sure if it was always in range, but hard to tell on camera. Great batrep! So glad girly man lost.

Awesome work gentlemen! One rule that didn’t matter in this game really, but is important overall is that multipliers to stats (eg Magnus’ Str due to his weapon) happen before addition (eg by Diabolic Strength). So his str would be 18 ((8×2)+2) rather than 20. He’s still wounding everything on 2s, but in the case of my wraithblades with the psytronome, it’s really a bummer XD. See page 175 of the Big Rulebook in the “modifying characteristics” sidebar.

Wow, fantastic! Thank you for this one! Best report for 8th so far, so cinematic and entertaining! …and when that cursed last predator shot the Big “G” one last time and rolled all four misses, i just went off screaming: “BEEAAAARD!!!” and my whole family ran up to me to know what was up with me ))) What a Game!

Forgive my Ignorance but can someone explain why bone could not re-roll 3s to hit??

You two guys are an absolute blast! My favourite reports on the channel always seem to involve the both of you. Thanks for brightening up my day.

Magnus is down, Girlyman is up, Ultramarine victory, period ?. Those silly points are details lol.
Honestly seing first 2 turns of Beard and this rampaging psychic I didn’t believe the Ultramarines could turn it around

Really like those thematic games!

I’ve watched 3 minutes and I’m already super entertained. Love watching you two banter, the battle report is just a bonus to go along.

That battle report was epic AND hilarious. The B-Beard reports are always a gem.

Absolutely Awesome game.

I thought it was all over after Beards turn one

At first when Beard said Diabolical Strength made Magnus Strength 20, I totally thought he was joking because Lawrence often says stuff is strength 20 as a joke… My god, Strength 20 is just obscene haha.

Best opening 12 out of 10

Entertaining as always guys and keep up the good work. I don’t know if anyone else noticed this and if it even made that much of an impact on the game but in your turn one psychic phase Mr Bone you actually rolled an 8 when casting might of heroes on Guilliman not a 7. The Beard then attempts to deny and rolls two 6’s which matches what you rolled so technically doesn’t deny it. Anyways I just thought I would let you guys know I noticed that and I look forward to the next one. Peace

Great game. Don’t forget guilliman gives +1 charge and advance at 12”

Mr beard when will you remember death to the false emperor!!! Also smight is at nearest model that mega smite would have been at girlyman or tigirius

Epic! Just… this was easily the best battle report I have seen on TTT. The game was brutally close, and cinematic as hell. The intro! Guys! You did it. It had the Spider feel to it. It was epic! I was so pumped up after that. Perfect intro theme as well – for the battle of brothers. And, Bone, you were swinging that imaginary laser sword as if you were Palpatine batteling Windu (just on speed … actually, you might do well as Emperor in Star Wars… the movie was just made to early for you). And Beard, man, I… Read more »

Bone! Didi you notice that all the “mistakes” end up benefiting ChaosBeard? Is he an evil genious?

I’m not going to say I have a favorite but Beard and Bones batreps are my favorite. This was a killer game. Some very cinematic kills. Congrats Beard on the win!

Awesome battle report, as always! Great job to both of you. As the Thousand Sons are my favorite army, I was hoping you both could possibly share what list you plan on running once you have the Tzaangors?

Thank you!

Awesome game! You two are easily my favorite duo at the moment ^_^ As for rules etc… *Who had the Thousand Sons CP farm relic? Curious since it should’ve stopped working when it’s wearer got killed 😛 *I fear Mr Bone might need glasses cause it’s not uncommon for him to read some 6s as being 5s for some reason 🙁 *Early in the game the Hellblasters suffered a few Lascannon hits and it being -3 should’ve resulted in them having saves on 6s instead of just being removed. *This one I’m not so sure about, but when Magnus was… Read more »

Not sure how relevant it is – but Girlyman also gives all Imperium units within 12” +1 on advance and charge rolls.

Absolutely loved this battle report! Silly Girlyman needs some fancy armour to stand up to the power of the Crimson King because he’s not tough enough by himself. huehue. Really enjoyed it! Can’t wait for even more Thousand Sons! (Daemon Princes and Tzaangors and stuff)

Unless I’m going crazy …. Ultrasmurf first psychic phase might of heroes 6+2 is 8 not 7 …. So shouldn’t have been denied

Love the comedy duo of Beard & Bone, great game guys. Although Bone, why no saves with the Hellblasters in turn 1? I know they were hit by LC shots but they still would have had a 6 save…….

Bonemaw

I think beard forgot Death to the False Emperor throughout the game no ?

Awsome batt rep! You should have gone for Bobby G in turn 1 beard, warp time to the top of the box then charge guiliman even f he hits back when dies or get up, the smurfs are useless without him 🙂

1 hour 3 minutes. Smite has to be cast on the nearest target which would have been who you were currently locked into combat with. Great battle report, just figured i would point that out since you could have killed Guilliman.

1:04:00 Best acting skillz ever seen

Can Magnus Direct his Smite to whatever he wants?

Franco Nova

55:00 should have killed Tigurius! Guilliman already fought, only 2 attacks on Tigurius would have killed him

AHaaa

Ah Beard, I don’t believe you when you say forgetting stuff isn’t what you like to do. Everyone knows it is exactly what you like to do!

Phil73805

Didn’t someone cast a spell on Magnus that improved his invulnerable by one? Isn’t the save 2+? (It’s perfectly possible that I forgot or missed something). Absolutely loving this battle report!
