RIP Blade of Power: 1933-2018

Hey Bone. Do you think you could have wrapped the closest rhino with the bikes after you killed the Hellbrute? Just thought that might have kept at least one of the units of rubbish Space Wolves 😀 from getting out and maybe given a bit of screen to Sammy? Plus, you would have been locked in combat and free from getting shot?

The Raven Wing still don’t feel balanced or an efficient set of units.

It was good to see rhinos ferrying the berserkers up the board.

OH BONE! YOU FORGOT TO ROTATE THOSE ION SHIELDS ON YOUR DICE!! Tough game — especially with how Lawrence rolls 😉 — but glad to see the new specialist detachment in action. Really looking forward to seeing this list rocking some scouts to not have to be as tight with CP. Maybe I missed it early on in the video, but that warlord traits gives you a once per game free re-roll (hit, wound, damage, or save). Definitely would’ve come in handy a few times when you were trying to save those final CP.

As usual, great game and good banter. I am an avid fan of melee lists and it warmed my heart to see the World Eaters chew out a win with some power axe savvy.

I feel the ravenwing really have no business in melee, they’re almost always better off shooting and using their 12+ inch moves. Jink is a hugely powerful ability. I think a lot of people get caught up with Corvus hammers thinking they’re decent in melee. The kytan is a huge distraction carnifex, yes it needs to be dealt with before the helbrutes, but not before the bezerkers. The Target priority is rhino’s to strand the berzerkers to give more targets to the hurricane bolters, and playing keep away with the kytan and helbrute. Also Lawrence, a renegade night with twin… Read more »

Any chance we can see some Nurgle daemons in one of the new eternal wars? I’m guessing that’d probably be a tactics, though

Great game guys.
Heldrake is T7, not sure what you guys ended up using 😀

Why the Talon Master doesn’t have an invuln’ is still a mystery to me.

Awesome play again, To bad though that the mission stratagem “Signal Interupt” wasn’t used to deny some points here and there

With a +1 to hit you can’t die from overcharging plasma since the 1 becomes a 2:)

Nice job, guys. Great to see the Drake do what it does best…cause a ruckus and soak up firepower. Given what was forced to shoot at it, it was effectively 12 extra wounds for the Kytan.

One advantage to the Drake not being a Flyer….still has a high Move with no turning radius and can still charge after that big move. If it were a flyer with Hover like it used to be, it would have to choose between speed and the ability to maneuver tightly or fight in CC. Not really a successful compromise, but I can see the reasoning.

Perhaps the Blade of Power has been killed Mr. Bone, but its cousin, the Karate Chop of Power, may still live yet!

Another great batrep – always enjoy seeing these armies. I would be interested in your thoughts on putting more weapons on the Rhinos now. Havoc launcher has gone down to only 6 points with chapter approved and you can put another combi-weapon on as well according to the rules. 2 combi-bolters and a Havoc launcher puts out 8+D6 shots in rapid fire range for only 10 extra points, its like a baby Razorback 🙂

Man that was brutal! It might of not make much of a difference but don’t forget the stasis bombs from the dark talons. Also I think its always worth advancing the darkshroud for that 4++ but then again the Khorne army doesn’t have too many guns.
But those rolls, just bad luck on all the important rolls.

Awesome Battle report, so much hilariousness!

Can you buff Kytan’s invun with daemon stratagem Warp surge? He only has 5++ as a dameon so nerf that it cannot go beyond 4++ is irrelevant and it will make it even more valuable. Plus if you really wanna go nasty just plug in Nurgle daemon battalion to grab objectives like a madman

All of the chaos infantry have death to the false emperor guys, unless the dark angels are lacking the imperium keyword? comment image

Fix the title boys!

Also, there’s some confusion here over how re-rolls to hit work. When Bone fired the damaged Darktalon and rolled a 1, 3, and 4 to hit, he only re-rolled the 1. However, he could also have re-rolled the 3 – the reason he was hitting on 4s is because the Darktalon’s BS is reduced to 4+ when it’s bracketed, so at that point a 3 is a miss before modifiers and can be re-rolled.

Controversal: But I really think boltpistol + chainaxes are the better loadouts for Khorne Berzerkers. World Eater Berzerkers anyway. I mean, you get the extra attack anyway due to Butcher’s Nails, and you pile in and fight twice. I feel like the extra attack from the chainsword is actually a bit superfluous since you are probably overkilling your target anyway!

EDIT: Oh, you said that too.

The Heldrake doesn’t have the extra -1 to Hit for shooting because he has a ginormous 30″ move and can charge. It’s just a pity he’s only -1, that’s way too low imo

Poor B.Bone 🙁 You must have incredible self control not to just swear constantly at Lawrence ^_^

Oddly enough regarding the Chain axe/sword argument, somebody (cant remember who apologies) did some math on hit to wound output between axe and pistol vs sword and pistol. As it turns out, despite 1 less hit with axe combo, the axe will output equal or more wounds than a sword (all depending on what you’re hitting with it).

Also to be fair if World Eater zerkers are not killing whatever they charge you have an issue. Why anyone would run them without axe pistol beats me, but hey it’s their army at the end of the day.

Lawrence… Shouldn’t a vanguard detachment have 3 elites choices???

Thank you TT, I was just saying. Maybe I shouldn’t have binged all the new shows. I need something for tonight.

Great game guys. You guys missed death to the flase emperor not that the spider needed it. Bone missed a lot of hits get those glasses back mate. Really enjoyed this. We need to see the space wolves and also the 8. They look incredible.
