What allowed the fire prisms to fire twice if they didn’t move?

Good game! Just FYI, you cannot overwatch against heroic interventions.

Nice game, I loved the Imperial soup with Sisters, Knights and Assassins! The game seemed a bit sloppy though in terms of rules and that’s a shame but despite that (or because of?) it was still an exciting and entertaining game. I hope you still read this so Beard can get some takeaways from this: – Acts of Faith are always done at the start of the relevant phase. It didn’t matter much during this game, but it’s very relevant for e.g. squads moving out of transports (they can’t use the extra move) or sequencing with the Hand of the… Read more »

Thanks for showing off the new assassins so quickly, must be a nightmare constantly implementing new rules and armies but its appreciated that you do. Hope to see the assassins again soon.

p.s seafood pasta 🙂

Bone I know this isnt like a hardcore game, but I have a tactics question for you; what stopped you from pushing the wave serpents up and charging his tanks to tie them down first turn (then killing the armies like you did) so he couldnt push up and shoot?

When you did charge, you targeted all 3 Instead of 1 and piling into the others?

Bone I believe you can absolutely tailor the assassin for your opponent in tournaments the same way you can leave points spare for summoning or when you pay CP for relics

Oh Beard, just a few things I wanted to mention:

Saint Celestine is S7 right? you were wounding wave serpents on 5s and 6s on round 4.

Melta bombs reroll all failed wounds against vehicles so no need to spend a CP in round 4 either.

a little tip, when a serpent has charged multiple vehicles leave one of your immortilators still in combat so it cant charge again.

Overal a great game… and assassins are disgusting xD

Here’s something to chew on: Reign of confusion still works on the first battle round even if the Cullidus is in reserve, as per the rules. Also, I believe he gets to reroll failed wounds on vehicles with the melta bomb

This is why i subscribe to you guys. Take two armies that im not particularly interested in, and i still get to see an awesomely entertaining battle report. You guys crack me up.
You do roll for ‘fate reader’ at the start of the turn however
Haha good work guys

Oh Man. Those serpent shield roles hurt to watch. Bone I’m sure we can crowd fund your trip back to Aus haha.

I don’t think you have to write on your tournament list what assassin you are going to bring in using the stratagem, you only have to put aside 85 points and spend the CP.

It’s worth saying what a joy you both are to watch! You get a sense of what good sports you both are, of course you could be violently attacking each other off camera.

Beard: you forgot Heroic interventionnnnnnn dude turn 2 you could have swiped all those Reapers up with Cel and put the Culexus into the Guardian squad too! Would have been brutal

Some guys had to hide their love of Celine dion. Other guys had to hide their love of other guys. I had to hide my love of Eldar from my crazy metal head brother. Now i’m an adult and i say BRING ON MORE SEXY SPACE ELVES FROM A DISTANT FUTURE! huzzah!

Can’t wait to watch this bad boy after a grueling 12 hour shift.

I don’t think you need to charge all 3 immolators. If you charge one and then consolidate into the other two you accomplish the same goal put don’t take the overwatch.

Put the no AP shots on the Guardian’s platforms Bone! That’s what they are for!

Actually, if using the 1CP strat to add an assassin, all you need is 85 free points for reinforcements since part of the stratagem is that you can choose any assassin to add and thus, like the bonus relics you buy for CP, don’t need to declare exactly what it is but can be anyone of them or none if you not to use the strat (although you’d be at a 85pt disadvantage), thus I find it hard to believe that a tournament would require you to pick a specific one for this particular role upon submitting your list.

The new primaris snipers are even more gross!
Love your OG models Beard, very nice.
Bone… replay this with the Tau. 🙂
Good game gents. You two have good chemistry. Very entertaining

Cracking game! I love the enthusiasm Bone and Beard bring to the game. “She’s distracted thinking about Cadmis Bane.”

As a fully committed Terryn player (best paint scheme!) you really needed to throw one of those Warglaives right in Bone’s face on turn one – Advance, still fire the Thermal Spear because it’s an Assault weapon, then use Full Tilt to charge T1. I like the Thunder of Voltoris, but honestly a Terryn Gallant is terrifying in its speed!

Thanks for awesome battle report!
Have a question – did Mr.Beard roll for additional CP use for Mr.Bone’s Command re-roll as it is also an stratagem, if I am not mistaken?

All three factions in the Imperium list are CP-draining. Would you be better with two detachments of AM or SoB and then the assassins ? With ten new stratagems I’d want to use over five each turn lol.

The trick with taking reapers with the units that you have is run a 7 man unit and a 3 man so you have two tempest launchers and then a bigger unit for guide to do its job
