When the two hellblasters died while shooting overwatch against the prince turn 2 they would shoot normally when using the banner ability = dead prince since you actually hit with them all and probably would have gotten 3-4 wounds against his 5++… 🙂

Some Aussie lingo leaking into Lawrence through B-Bone, there! 😀

Grabs popcorn…..watches Abaddon get punked in the face. Somewhere in the Eye of Terror Perturabo smiles and so am I 🙂 This was good result and ol’ top knot head got what he deserved.

Awesome game guys, great to see chaos back in a big way 😃 would love to see some of the other units in the chaos roster like the defiler! Also even though possessed aren’t very good.. I would love to see the new stuff from shadowspear combined with a daemonkin-esque force, would be cool to see that on the field 😁

Yes assault marines are bad, but i think there are things you could do with Vanguard Veterans.. Especially ultramarine vanguard vets, you could give them the Victrix guard specialist detachment.

Very cool !
I think unfortunatly the intercessors veterans have been FAQed, and one unit can only use the rapid fire stratagem once. Bummer.

Taking your points regarding six assault astartes only killing a few cultists…

Is there any way to create a broader spread of “capability” (allowing more fluff accurate stats in game) when the designers only have the ability to define the spread of probabilities for every stat using a scale of 1-6?

Considering the overall spread of “fluff power” across the myriad unit types available, surely the only way to address this is for all rolls to be made using d10s?

What a close game, love the batrep as always fun to watch, Quick question you guys going to be getting any of the vanguard primaris?

awesome batrap, may have been covered already so i apologize in advance, but, the centurians, when they died, and fired as a result of the banner, did they not roll their heavy bolter shots? they should have wiped that unit of cultists.

Wonderful game guys. Great to see Bone get the win (deserves it after roll of 6 on a D10 ?)

Looking forward to Custodes v Black Legion in the future. It’ll be EPIC!

Oh and the Chain Lord could be “The Lumberjack”

You know how sometimes with subscription based services you really wonder if they’re worth the money, or if the values there…I’ve never once questioned my On Demand subscription – I love the content, multiple weekly updates, great personalities, a real joy to watch!

Great Batrep again! Did we forget the heavy bolters on the centurions however?..

Lawrence i hope you are going to magnetize the Forgefiends (so you couldve Maulerfiends also if you want them).
now that we have abbadon and speically Harkeen (will love to see him in a narrative game)
its time to film some worldclaiming for the Warmaster Mr Lawrence 🙂

Neil Robertson
Neil Robertson

NOOOOOOOOO! Lawrence you didn’t realise that “ABA…DDON let’s him re roll all hits. So the Decimators and oblits would have got a lot more damage in pretty much wiping out a unit or 2 more of the helblasters which would have swung the game massively, also not the biggest fan of that kind of maelstrom game for a tactica lol that was so random haha. Great to see the new army out and can’t wait to see the new additions!

Very cool game, such a bloodbath! I completely agree with your assessment of Assault Marines. Primaris Reivers also suffer from a lack of punch as well.

Epic video introduction too. Loved it!

Fantastic batrep guys! Always very entertaining! Question, how is the Tempestus drop force list coming along? Very interested seeing that.

Watching turn one it shows why vehicles are so important for protecting/screening Infantry from Dreadnought et al.

Without an invuln for the Centurions I’m reluctant to spend £15 per model on them. They are too easily removed unless they’re hidden from view.

Rob Butcher

Do TTT need for BatReps –

(1) a tankard for Bone to put his dice into when rolling large numbers ?
(2) a dice tray to stop them rolling everywhere ? (It works on Warhammer TV).

The overwatch omg hellblasters that died from the banner hit on 3s. That being said you can be forgiven, you haven’t had primaris long and not played with them much. I am wondering Lawrence do you think big blobs of inflitraitors in da would be competitive. Taking a Phobos librarian too to redeploy if you don’t go first. I mean they get bolter discipline and rerolling 1s? Take a normal da librarian too for that sweet – 3 action

Awesome batrep! Just had a look and the Decimators with dual butcher Cannon are only 140pts. That’s 48 S8 -2 2D shots. With Abbadon nearby they will absolutely tear through anything. And then the -2 LD might even stack?

Makes their damage really scary while making them not such a big investment.

Edit: just did math. With Abbadon they would do 21.5 wounds on a knight with a 4+invun.

Hi Bone, great work really loved Celgar vs Failabbon. He basically killed the old fool, I’d like to think he pushed Failaddon into the firing line of the hellblasters with the last of his strength.

Spectacular entrance for the Black Legion, guys, and an excellently-played batrep. Y’all make my longer, slower work days much more bearable with the content you’re putting out these days, and continue to showcase the most entertaining batreps I’ve ever found. Can’t wait to see more.

Calgar should have gotten the banner as well when he went down so he could have taken Abadon with him.

Because he’s a super trooper

Loved this game. Top notch battle and banter. Though I really wanted you to use the banner during overwatch RAW. Firing back at full BS is hilarious, particularly with my 20 Hellblasters around the Dark Angels banner that makes your BS 2+ for your final shots.

Daemon prince incoming? They’re gunna die anyway. Overcharge and reroll for 1’s!

Epic game! Guys can I just try and get across how good your content is. You play with beautifully painted armies, have very good knowlegde of the rules, the production quality is through the roof and you as people are SUCH a pleasure to watch. TTT Is without doubt the best 40K content on the internet, so many thanks from me for all your hard work you put in to produce SUCH boss content.

Alec Glass

Ahh yes the classic matchup!! Also incidentally, something’s come up here that has been a point of contention between myself and some others – when the banner goes off during overwatch and the hellblasters overcharge, die, and get to fire again, are they still hitting on 6s or are they back to hitting on 3s like normal bc those shots technically aren’t a part of overwatch? EDIT: should have scrolled down and seen that this was super addressed already haha carry on!

2:12:40 – The lone marine should fight back… well, he, probably, was to tired…

Fun game. Love the back and forth haymakers of the early rounds. And, as always, love the banter back and forth.

One note, Abbaddon’s reroll aura is now “reroll hit rolls” instead of reroll misses. So the -1 penalties do not affect which dice can be rerolled. Personally, I hope they change all the “reroll misses” or “reroll failed wounds” to be just “reroll hit rolls” and “reroll wound rolls” since it’s more intuitive for newcomers to the game.

Also, the Oblit would’ve gotten Death to the False Emperor on 5s in close combat! He could’ve been epic!

Robin Williams

I think when you rolled the banner shots for the hell blasters that died from overwatch shots, you rolled as tho they hit on sixes, but wouldn’t the banner just allow them to shoot normally? could have been a big swing to kill that oblit earlier!

Fantastic report as usual.

The two armies are severely decimated. The blood is flowing in rivers… And then I realize it is only the end of the Battle Round 2.
Awesome battle report gentleman!

As someone who tried Host Raptorial yesterday evening with a jump lord, two squads of beautiful Raptors, etc…and was wiped off the table after failing no less than three 7″ charges…this battle report hit me in the feels.

Lawrence was right about not charging over terrain with his Chainlord in turn 2, the new FLY faq says: “models that can fly cannot move across BUILDINGS or any terrain feature as if they were not there when charging (they must instead move up, over, down, or around them as any other model would).”

The problem is that ‘building’ is a keyword not a description of terrain which I think is what is mixing people up.

Franco Nova

I believe there’s an answer to the “Do I re-roll the profile for weapons” In the recent FAQ!

Chainlord has to make one of it’s 7 attacks with the Normal Chainsword, as it gives you “an additional attack with this weapon”

AHHHH that Calgar-Abaddon duel! properly epic!!
