Would love to see Skarbrand in that Khorne list, he makes a bloodletter bomb insane and fantastic as a knight killer 😉

So this means we are seeing a Black Templars army in the future right Lawrence??!? All Crusader Squads and Land Raider Crusaders, right?!?!…
That would be pretty cool. Never see the boys in black… and red… and cream… anymore.

Pretty nice. Should bring Skarbrand too, next time, adding even more attacks. And/or the Crimson Crown, for more attacks. Because more attacks 🙂

Hey Hey! I literally just finished building and painting a pure khorne deamon list and while I know its not really ideal or competitive its still a fun list to run. I was thinking of putting it together with world eaters and then BAM this comes out lol. I know i need to add a ranged element because we lack it so much so I was thinking of throwing in a renegade knight or a brass scorpion, im glad to know my ideas werent to far off from what you guys were thinking lol

1h40 Min 2000 pts Battle report -> I smell bloodbath !
@26′ Bone -> Overkill ! should have gone for the other one and finish the business on the 1 wound Rhino with the Hyve guards for exemple and then shoot again on the Berserkers 😉

Have you guys thought of running a patrol detachment of Khorne Daemons with the World Eaters? 575 points for a Bloodletter bomb and a Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage. Make the Bloodthirster your warlord with Armour of Scorn and either Oblivious to Pain or Rage Incarnate. Spend the 6 CP pre-game to give the Bloodletters 3D6 charge and Denizens of the Warp on both of them. Yes, that is a 6 CP commitment pre-game, but GOOD GOD man! If you ran a 1500 point game or higher you still get 3 Berzerker units, 3 Rhinos, a Dark Apostle and an Exalted… Read more »

Lawrence: you attacked with your Maulerfiend against the Rhino’d Thornback 4 times with your fists and 6 with the Tendrils (mark 1:12:00). Shouldn’t you have split the attacks so it would be 3 fists to get the 1 -> 6 tendrils?
If I’m missing something, please enlighten me.

Great Bat Rep. I’ve never been a khorne guy but for some reason they’re one of my very favourite studio armies to watch and it’s really nice to see them expanded. Here’s hoping khorne gets the buffing it needs soon. As an aside, and this is no way a sneaky criticism I swear, but am I the only one who finds these reports send them to sleep? They’re really entertaining and exciting but it has the same effect on me as my close friends chatting and laughing late into a party. There’s just something oddly comforting about it that makes… Read more »

I have an idea. You guys should livestream a full batrep where Spider plays his usual game but Bone gets a ten minute break between rounds to have a “team meeting” with the audience where he can crowdsource ideas for what to do next. Don’t get me wrong Bone, you’re a solid tactician – but maybe the combined intellect of OnDemand can help overcome whatever hex the dice gods have placed upon you.

aaargh but it is so easy to screen with nids !!! termagants / ripper swarms and all your shooty beasts would have been safe ! and devourers are so much better than deathspitters.. 2 carnifexs with 2×2 devourers and enhanced senses would have saturated the 5++ saves to death ! same on the flyrant. and dont forget you can split fire with your hive guard, so much overkill.. and the malanthrope vs word bearers.. anyway great batrep as always guys (the last one with the tactical gambit tv show was just outstanding !!!) i just love my nids and want… Read more »

I would really like to see more of the Khorne Daemons 🙂
Great game gents – as always!

The Genestealer Cult Patriarch is strength 6,the Broodlord, inexplicably, is only strength 5

Well done gentlemen! Interesting to see another take on World Eaters and Chaos Soup lists. I want to see the Orks go against something a bit more competitive. Orks vs. Dark Eldar or Eldar would be really interesting.

Would also like to see an entire Dakka based Ork army. I think with the Dakka Dakka Dakka rule it could be quite effective. Squads of 30 Ork Boyz with Shootas is frightening!

Great game as always guys! Any future plans to do a series on Blackstone Fortress?! Would be awesome to see the game be played by the gang! Keep up the hard work!

Sorry Bone, but if you want more genestealers you need to work harder to keep them alive. Put catalyst on the Genestealers not the Broodlord!! If you attack multiple units and strike first, when your opponent strikes back start taking models away that are closest to those still left to strike back so they cannot activate and retaliate against you. There was opportunity to not let the Exalted Champ to fight at all before you got the fight again strat in but if done right you might of still had more models to pile in and still get all 3… Read more »

Khorne Daemonkin was a really fun army, with the blood tithe table even close combat cultists could go into psycho mode and be useful, so missing this unique army ability together with the rather lacklustre CSM codex I’ve not really felt like I wanted to play them much this edition.

It was just such a perfect Khorne army mechanic, symbolizing the veil between worlds dropping as the battle raged, mortal khorne followers going mad and daemons charging through.

One more thing. Always roll morale for your Daemons even if you can’t fail. You need to chase those 1’s to get bodies back. 🙂

Love the new Khorne list. What about kharn or a daemon prince instead of sargaroth so that they are lead by an equaly cool warlord thats more effective. Keep up the great work as always you BOSSES! 2 bat reps in 1 day i loved it.

Enjoyed this one, being a world eaters fan, but also just starting to collect tyranids for the first time. I’m curious what the bones “perfect tyranid list” is? Also quick question – do the spine banks not also fire twice if the T-fex remains stationery ? Gutted again for bone, would love to see a horde /combat tyranid force take on a gun line tau in a tactica! Thanks for the great content 🙂

A new batrep after only 3 hours. be careful you don’t want to spoil us now.

Thanks for posting this. Good stuff. Surprised you didn’t pile up the Maulerfiends and your Juglord around Karanak for charge rerolls (wouldn’t have needed the Talisman). They are Khorne Daemons after all and Designer’s Commentary says that aura abilities target across Codexes just fine….it’s only the Daemon stratagems that don’t. Also, you need a Daemon Prince with the Skullreaver axe to kill big stuff. It’s insanely effective….and while you’re at it, you might want to investigate the Crimson Crown on a Herald for the +1 Strength Locus and the extra attacks on 6’s. With the Herald giving reroll charge, taking… Read more »

Fun World Eaters list and fun game. I think you’d like blood slaughterers in place of the mauler fiends: they serve the same purpose but are faster, have more attacks and are able to be hidden a little easier as they are smaller and for only 8pts. more.

As for Kytan: I switched to brass scorpion and have never looked back. It’s fast and with 3d6 charge. Deadly shooting and close combat.

Beta deep strike is f$%king weak. I play Blood Angels and Khorne and it fundamentally effect the way the army plays. It favors static gunlines which are so intensely boring. Surly we all want dynamic games of movement with stuff all over the board? The rule of fun and cool need to be reconsidered by GW imho.

This was absolutely brutal. I love it. Also Lawrence calling B-Bone “scum” when he made his invulnerable save sums up every wargamer’s thoughts that they are too polite (or afraid) to say and was hilarious!

Benjamin Schneider

Lawrence, you have the wrong idea! You don’t want the Kytan… You want the Brass Scorpion of Khorne >:D Maybe two of them…
