My favorite part was Bone’s dancing when Beard checked his dread’s save and how disappointed he was when Beard made it haha

Hey Ben, as a fellow Aussie and Ravenwing player, consider using a biker librarian with Aversion and Righteous Repugnance to make a blob of Black Knights extra dangerous and survivable in cc. Also I totally agree with you that landspeeders are a gift from the emperor, and their speed in a unit of 3 is Incredible, especially when combined with speed of the raven to give them a 4++.
Love your work mate, keep it going and keep the Dark Angels reports flowing. Also good luck at the LVO.

Best ending ever….

When the dark talons shoot at the demon prince it only gets +1 to hit against units that cant fly. by the prince has wings so you would only hit on 3s and re roll 1s and 2s because of Sammeal

Glad to see the Beard getting some win with the Iron Warriors! (filthy heretics)

Pro-tip: kill the Darkshroud first with your Sicarans next time though!

Good game guys.

I was under the impression that Sicarans never suffer any minus when shooting flyers even if you advanced or shooting at unit with lighting reflex etc…

Magnificent batrep guys. You guys make for an entertaining as well as informative game. Good luck at the LVO.

Was really close to getting through a dark angels list run down without saying Chaos v Chaos. Was SO happy it was in there, would of been super dissapointed if not. Excellent game guys, B-Bones crazy armor save turn 1 came back round with Beards stellar saves on the Leviathan later in the game. Crazy entertaining as ever, thanks guys.

That’s was a fantastic game especially considering that brutal first turn. It was so fun to see that turn around. The ending is hilarious and so unfair lol!

Dr.Beard and Dr.Bone. Aligned again. I worry what happened in the antipodes.

That giggle from beard at the end of the game made the ending so much better

Great game but bone didn’t you advance the darkshroud ?If so it should be 4s and the darkshroud should be alive.

I’m fairly certain that the black knights jink rule only affects shooting attacks. So the they wouldn’t get a save against the leviathan in combat. (hoping to redeem myself from the comment blunder on the last video oh great b-bone)

Great game chaps. Beard – are you finally give up on Sicarans yet dude? Even three of them did pretty poor. I love the rate of fire and rules but that -1 AP is just no good.

That was effing magnificent!!!!11!!!1

The credits are rolling and i’m still giggling! I really thought it was going to go downhill very very quickly after Beard’s turn1 but that turned into an awesome recovery. Super cool guys 🙂

Having said that – Beard essentially played the game with 2 fewer Sicarans than he should have and still pulled out a win – does that say anything about the usefulness of Sicarans?

Just a thought…

Such a fun brutal game! glad to see the Chaos Knight got a good outing this time. Have you considered running the Sicarans with Heavy Bolter sponsons? would save loads of points for other stuff and make it not so scary to move them about a bit.

Very good game guys. Again beard, i love your iron warriors. Exactly how I imagine the seige lords to look!

I think Beards save rolls on the leviathon are only fair making up for the awful, awful luck on t1 shooting.

Hate to be a rules guy: The Dreadnought cannot be healed because of its Mechanica Malifica rule (This model cannot regain lost wounds by any other means.)

Fantastic game, top bants as per usual with you two.
This game makes me want to get myself a third Dark Talon….so tough to fit it in when I run 15 Deathwing Terminators and Terminator HQ’s :S

Love to see the Ravenwing. Weren’t you tempted by the new Vigilus detachment rules? They allow your bikers to charge in, fight and then drive off again. Very cool 🙂 The stasis bombs on the Dark Talons as well but he didn’t have many mobs to get the best out of them.

BobbyG

Really don’t understand why you didn’t charge the prince with the knights in Turn 1 Bone. Marines are so Fragile this game displays this so well. But good fun as always

DId you not use Prepared Positions on turn 1, @B-Bone? That could have helped

I haven’t seen it yet in the comments but when the demon prince attacks the talon in Beard’s T2 he got at least one six on the attack rolls. Death to the False Emperor forgotten again sadly.

Good news everybody!
It’s another Tabletop Tactics Battlreport!

(However, I must confess that I wished the Ravenwing finally had some Scouts and Sammael in Sablexlaw on their side, but I’ve been told in a live stream they are coming soon and I want to believe them, even if it is the fifth time they say “they are coming soon” ? )

Gentlemen, great batrep, lots of fun. Nice to see the Iron Warriors eke out a win, don’t think we’ve seen one for a while.

Remember, the Hellwright gives the leviathon dreadnaught, and sicarans +1 to attack and leadership!

The hurricanes from the dt should have hit on 3’s and not 2’s on the deamon prince since he has fly?

By the way those its a common misconception but those chubby angel baby things are not cherubs, they are called putto’s. Cherubs come in many froms but are usually like winged creatures

Great batrep guys.
One little question.
Why doesnt bear use the Renegade knights “trail of destruction” stratagem?

Bone should do a cosplay fitness video,

Bone and Beard is the bestest combination. Best Educational Channel on the internet.
