Great game, really enjoyed it. The opening to this report had me laughing so hard though. Just awesome. Its already been said but Ahriman couldn’t activate in turn 2. The real question though is why charge Ahriman in Turn 1 at all if you were not going to swing at him Mr Bone? Use the charge roll to move around and get out of heroic intervention range so you can hit the rubrics and sorcerer that you wanted to kill. Would of saved 2 bikes from those 2 turns giving you more to deal with the Helbrute that they tried… Read more »

so how can the characters pile in when they are more than 1″ away from combat and they didnt charge? saw this on Ahriman and the Shadowseer.

So for this game mode if i played imperial knights could they even hold objectives since they dont have troops?

B-Bone, you guys bust out the laughs in another great video. You seam to not want to use your starweavers in CC. Unlike other vehicle starweaver hit well, and you had two next to Airahamn at one point. Allow their blades of power slice you more victories

Great stuff, guys.

Regarding Vets of the Long War….

Pg. 178 of the rulebook (left sidebar) says that if two effects appear simultaneous, the person whose turn it is chooses the order.

So Tzaangors could have had their bonus for the 2nd set of swings early on.

Also….Chef….Y U No Gaze of Fate?

If you don’t have a character who can take the Tzeentch Discipline naturally you can spend a CP to swap to powers from that Discipline with ANYBODY.

I’m so happy to see Chef around more often again! Isn’t the same without him – just to be clear I’d miss anyone of you!

Really fun game to watch, I’ve watched other people do games and they don’t make them as fun as you guys

Super guys! I have high hopes for these missions after watching you play. Do you think troops in general will get more important or is it just the odd mission that focuses on troops?

great game guys. New to your channel, drawn here by Necron battle reports on YouTube, and am super impressed with your content! Love the banter. Have you guys tried using 6 ghost arcs full of warriors for these missions? maybe backed by doomsday arcs if you have the points? I used to use as many as I could in 7th and it was very deadly.

Hell of a game fella’s. Tourny points should never be less than 1850. Get those chess clocks out and penalize the lallydaggers for any shenanigans.

Hey @Tab@tabletoptactics:disqus , Just thinking, when are we getting an Apocalypse game 🙂
Maybe for the Vigilius campaign ?
Great bat rep with a LOT of fun

Great Game guys. Turn 2 Harlequins physic phase, not sure if it happened off camera after the hilarious 1 roll on the super smite but it didn’t look like you rolled for crazed on the Hellbrute which happens at the end of any phase the Hellbrute took damage, could have been big if it went off. Crazed is a great rule but gets forgotten more than Death to False Emperor xD

@benjaminbonar:disqus Daaamnnnnnnn guys I don’t think I’ve ever laughed this much. Bone you kill me every time, excellent game guys!

Quicky, am I being dumb but if Shruiken is -3 AP on a roll of a 6, the rubrics would get a 5+ save against it right not a 4+? 3+ goes down to 2+ for All is dust, then up to 5+ for the -3 AP?

Nonetheless this was one of my favourite bat reps in a while.

Also love Lawrence’s special FX sounds, brings me back to the days of playing army men in the sandbox lol.

Great game gents! Really looking forward to more in the future! Something that really has me pumped is missions like this seem like they would be really good to use Black Legion with. Going to make a tactic discussion about it on the forums now.

Bone you should’ve used cegorachs jest against Ahriman. It’s not like chef didn’t not use veterans because it’s good also you looked like cornholio when you pulled your shirt over your head

i loved that, really enjoying the new rules, makes a difference to the game. You guys thought about filming at 4k 60fps at all?

Awesome batrep guys, thoroughly enjoyed it. As a harlequins player great to see thembeat those pesky thousand sons lol. I love the banter in all the batreps with stunningly painted armies.

Fantastic game guys great to see the quins doing well, these new missions are great can’t wait to play them myself. Now Spider i’d love to see a Harlequin tactica maybe with a Harlequin soup list 🙂

Just a epic batrep

Looks like the new mission types are perfect for Harlies. They were already an army with lots of troop selections

Hello, aren’t starweavers considered as troops when taken for troupes ?

Great battle report – looking forward to playing the new CA missions after watching the last few battle reports you have done. Think it will really turn the game on it’s head 😀

Most likely already mentioned in comments but I don’t agree with you Chef. At the end of the fight phase mean still in the fight phase but after all fighting groups have attacked. Just to ensure you don’t attack twice in a row. So Veterans of the long war should still be in play

I love your battle reports but the website performance is becoming frustrating. Constant difficulty logging in and sometimes the server just doesn’t respond. Hopefully you are working on these problems.

Oh man! I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Thousand Sons win a game in a batrep.

Don’t worry bone, the blade of power will become relevant once Farsight and the Eight return XD

Great game with loads of fun moments! These new CA2018 missions are very entertaining and hope to see more of them ^_^

Im pretty sure that veterans applies to both sets of attacks as when you fight at the end of the fight phase its still in the fight. The end of a race is still part of the race. This is how Ive always played it and seen it be played.

I was curious about the Thousand Sons Helbrutes.

Looks like they have some pretty sweet TSons themed panels and heads do you have any info on where one would be able to find those bits?

Boy, I love you guys. This was a FUN game to watch. I’m very happy to see Chef on the channel more frequently, and, Bone, you are priceless. Spider, thank you for hosting. You’re the best. I’m gushing but you boys just make my day.

Bones. Punish the Spider for breaking the website with your mighty Blade of Power.

Axe of power is way cooler though.

Awesome game – glad i’m not the only person wondering if we should be shouting Heil Bone at the blade of power – really looking forward to getting CA on Saturday and getting my ‘Quins painted up and dusting off the grey knights and…things to look forward to! Thanks guys 🙂 Also – more Chef!

Great job guys. I love the look of the new missions. I would love to see a tactica showing the difference. Also we’re are the space puppies? Not seen them in a while.

Amazing gameplay!

Marcello Genovese

In the combat against the skyweavers at 1:28:00 Ahriman CANNOT activate since Bone pulled all models within 1″ of him and he didn’t charge. Read the combat section again carefully. You may only activate and pile in 3″ if you are within 1″ of an enemy when selected or have performed a charge that turn. This is why combats with multiple characters or units really can suck when they combat a single target. A savy opponent can pull models in order to shaft units that were in the ongoing assault.

Be gone naysayer the blade and the axe of power are the new hype and i love it

P.S love the battle rep

Great batrep as usual. Harlequins turn 2 is often a devastating one!

Nice and fun BR! But dudes, com on! You forgot to let the Shadow Seer strike back in Harlequin’s turn 4 and the Troupe Master hitting the terminators in TS turn 4.
