Let’s talk business, I know he is not the most competitive, but can we have a sick model of Azrael! So he can kick Karn in a showdown Dark Angels vs World Eaters, that sounds good

I think b bone forgot starweavers had 3 shots lol. Great report. Also Chaplin on bike doesn’t have ravenwing to benefit from banner or Samuel

Once again what a epic battle. Loved it.

I know you have probably said in the past but where do you get your terrain pieces from they look really good quality pieces

Sanga coming on full time too?? This is great! Does that mean the entire cast of players crew will be full time now? ?

Mr. Bone only shot half of the Starweavers weapons. They have two Shurikencannons each, not only one, 🙁

B-Bone I just want to make sure I understand why you didn’t pile in with all of your troops on the Apothecary and Chaplin. Was it so they couldn’t fall back and let the rest of the army fire at you?

Making Bikes troops choices for Raven wing and White Scars would be awesome and make those thematic lists kind of playable.

Another belter of a game, felt crushed for B-bone after that whiffer of a whifftington turn one. Very very well played to take it as close as he did, as ever I loved the game. TTT Still pushing out the best 40K content on the web (and hopefully AoS in the new studio!).

Would love to come play as a guest so will be waiting on tenderhooks to hear about how to apply! 🙂

Mr. Bone, the honeyglazed peanut. It sounds… “rich”

Got to disagree with you on the standard RW bikers. Not much point giving them plasma compared to black knights, other than simply getting bolter shots too. Ive been running squads here or there with my RW force and either flamer combi flamer for 3d6+14 shots for some awesome anti horde or point clearing potential or melta combi melta which gives you some great anti armour threat when paired with the detachments +1 to hit stratagem. You can threaten key models real easily with either option.

Not a criticism because very few people read it right but corvus hammers do d3 wounds on 6’s not d3 damage. I was playing my dark angels for a few months after the codex dropped before I caught it myself. Great bat rep as always. Got me to bring my ravenwing for a spin and take a break from my tau this weekend.

bone and lawrence just are an iconic duo like tom and jerry, asterix and obelix or peanutbutter and jelly.. its just a joy to see those two interacting with each other

What about a librarian on bike instead of the chaplain? Not familiar with the dark angel psychic powers

I constantly mess up my rules and I only play *ONE* army. Can’t imagine what it must be like juggling all the ones you folks do. Keep it up!

Lawernce – A question about ‘SPEED OF THE RAVEN’ Use this Stratagem when one of your RAVENWING units Advances. That unit can still shoot and charge this turn is this stratagem really only used to allow units to charge after an advance? Or does it also allow you to fire your Heavy/Rapid Fire weapons as well after advancing? (given that Assault weapons can fire after an advance at -1 anyways, and Heavy/Rapid Fire weapons become unusable)

doesn’t lightning fast reflexes only last for a phase?

Mr Bone don´t you worry about all these people yelling mistake, mistake at you. You are doing a great Job playing all this different armies and with a little more luck, let´s say average luck, you win a lot more games than you already do! You are the best Bone in all of the Internet and always give me a good laugh!

Excellent Batrep

As a harlequins player myself i like watching them in batreps and the ending could have so different there Ben except for a few unlucky dice roles

Tobi

How can you roll so many ones young Benjamin, it´s hard to watch!

You guys should put a whiteboard up on the studio wall where you can write the “rules of the day” to help you remember everything!

I’ve been playing Ad Mech exclusively for a year and theres still loads of rules I forget!

Matt Green

If you wanted bigger bike squads why not do 2 units of 6? Because you already had the land speeders in there to fill out the outrider.

I prefer the HB on the Typhoon so it can sit at range with the typhoon launcher.

Guys I’m genuinely impressed with your batreps, how you work together. I can’t speak for the others here but this is for me is money well spent. The only others I support are Chapter Master Valrak and MWG. You my friends are top shelf.

Loved the PSA segment at the start, had me chuckling along with you guys! Keep it up ya clowns!

My only issue with taking normal bikers in a Ravenwing army, even with the bolter discipline, is that most of the other aspects of the army already cover this well (incrreased dakka) with dark talons, talon masters, sammy etc. Black Knights offer a different option to the rest of the army.

Lads have a look at unit rules and BS when you are playing in a game with some many modifiers. As a harlequin player when they aren’t played correctly it makes a huge difference. for example samael couldn’t preroll 2s on his storm bolters in turn 1. TOO MANY MODIFIERS!!!! and star weavers have 2 shrunken cannons not 1.

After Bone failed to get twilight pathways on the first turn even after a reroll. I had to close the video and walk away for a few hours before coming back to it. I felt for you.

Im actually amazed that the Bbone plays alot of matches that are really close.
Says alot of the bones tactical acumen. Imagine if bone had… Average luck. Hed be the undisputed studio champ. 🙂

@1:03:35 those plasma talons are rapid fire at half range. You should have rolled a couple extra dice. Don’t remember if you did it earlier or not. Also brilliant strategist works on 5 and 6 for DA. Great batrep as always guys. Love seeing DA on here.

Excited to see what this new studio is going to be like! Going to be doing a “Spider Show-down” or “B-Bone Brawl” style thing vs the fans? I’m sure you mentioned about a new studio not that long after the beginning of 8th even?…

Bone: ‘I can’t roll a 6 on two dice with a reroll’
Bone previously – Rolls a super smite on 2x 6’s. Rerolls to avoid Perils….rolls a 6…..rolls to wound the psyker….rolls a 6 ?

The evidence is against you Mr Bone!

“I didnt warm to the Lion” thats the point Benjamin. The Lion was pretty poor as far as a Primarch goes, needing Luther’s abilities to achieve what he did, but claiming the glory for himself. Its the basis for the rift between the two. And then we see that its actually the Lion that essentially betrays and ostracizes his own men. Hes a dick. You’re not supposed to like him.

Thank you for all the awesome videos you guys make. It’s an awesome way to spend a few hours while hobbying or just chilling. Do you have any plans to run the Flesh Tearers in the future?

Lightning fast is only for the phase right? So bone would have had to pop it again in the fight phase. Or is that only the eldar version?

Dear mr. B-Bone, you are still far from mastering the murder clowns. The harlequins are only really good in combat when you pair them up with Troupe Master, no ifs and buts about that. 4A at S5 AP2 sounds nice but you pay more for the same amount of attacks as genestealers for example. and due to their squishiness they cannot be so easily utilized and require an elegant “footwork” to position them well. There were quite a few questionable decisions throughout the game. Just to name a few: 1. Going for a gamble with jetbikes is an alright choice… Read more »

Love this. Seeing your Ravenwing army made me choose them as my second army a few months ago so thanks for that!

I had no idea that the order went 1) choose target. 2) Check if they want to activate lightning fast reflexes. 3) Decide if you want to overcharge or not. Obviously massive for ravenwing. Does anyone have anywhere I can point in the rules to show this? I am sure I will get called out when I try it

The Red Corsairs style of “Gain 3 CP if the detachment includes 3 units of Ravenwing Bikers” could work.

Giving them “Troop” would make them a bit too good imo, since that would enable Defenders of Humanity… and do we really want marines with that speed also having objective secured?

Maeglin

Surprising amount of rule errors for a Spider/Bone game. Still fun but Sammael falling back and charging on turn 3 and the Land Speeders trying to snipe the Shadowseer with frag missiles when there was a Starweaver right next to them was very unusual. Not to mention any Bone mistakes ?

Another good battle reports guys. however lighting fast reactions works in cc. I checked my codex twice unless the Harile stratagem is different

Pretty sure those Scouts could’ve used the Chaplains Leadership against the grenade launcher. Its a default rule every Chaplain has on their data sheet I think and he has LD 9. No worries, I watched the game through before I commented.
