Love me a bit of iron warriors!!! gooo beard!!

Bone, Might of Heroes doesn’t buff the whole squad, just one model. So you could choose one guy in a squad, but sadly it’s not as good as the Death Guard spell. Great game, really funny.

Its partly jealousy, but also partly resentment. For a lot of 8th edition it has been the case that you could only really run marines if you ran Ultramarines (and for some chapters like Black Templars and White Scars its still very very difficult to run them fluffy and not get trashed). A lot of the time CP have been an issue, and the fact that the Ultramarines got 2 different characters which confer CP, as well as the only item in the codex which allows the replenishment of CP is difficult to swallow when all the toys seem to… Read more »

Ultras…. it’s definitely jealousy I think. Fellow loyalists just want cool toys and primarchs too!
Chaos have double the primarchs and so many badasses 😛

Your conversions are on point as always Beard. As a fellow converter I appriciate good work. 😀

First. Thank you for this intense and glorious battle report!
Second. Mr. Bone all that 5s and 6s from your rolls. This is the clear sign from the Emperor that you must forfeit that treacherous xenos and their false Greater Good! And join the ranks of his finest warriors!

Could you actually smite the Dark Apostle in your turn 5 Bone? @~1:50ish in. Beard did say that he was trying to position out of los and it looks like he did a pretty good job, but of course camera’s can and do lie.

Fantastic game gents. It was definitely closer than what it would otherwise look like on paper.

Looking forward to this game, but I just have a minor nitpick before the going gets… going, because I’ve heard it a couple of times in previous battle reports,

But the audio balance for the music and your talking intro’s is a bit wonky, the music seems to be quite high (I’m listening on earphones, for whatever that’s worth) and frequently is louder than the speaking. My humble suggestion is to cut the music before any talking begins or fade it out much sooner than what you’re presently doing.

Great stuff, awesome to see the new havocs in play. Defo consider throwing VOTLW on the havocs over the cultists. Also, try and target the hellblasters last if you’re thinking of throwing out a cacophony with them!

Hey guys great game! Just to let you know beard sadly benediction of darkness only lets you choose 1 unit to put the -1 on

Obligatory PSA: Might of Heroes can only be cast on a Model, not a unit 😀

Great bat rep as usual! Quick question…why does no one ever wear shoes in the studio? The Spider is probably fanatical about keeping the carpets clean I imagine.

Ace game, thanks. Only pointing it out cos it’s really bugging me but you’ve spelled ‘Summary’ wrong in the little popup at 150:05 😀

Please can someone make an animation of Epistolary Magnus sky boarding from Stormtalon Omega cos they’re just best buds going on adventures in between the day to day battles for the Emprah!!!

Beard! You should have charged his squad with your rhino when yiu just had the 2 guys on objective 4. Woulda forced a fall back and less shoosting?

Pedro Souza

You guys make some very entertaining batreps; hey Beard, how about you throw in 2 FW Hellforged Whirlwind Scorpius and a Hellforged Deredeo Dreadnought w/ atomantic pavaise? If you couple them with those Sicarans you would have a nasty firebase! Cheers!

Dusty

Cracking battle! I really couldn’t predict who was going to win. Beard-Bone Combo cam has become my favorite!

Scott Wallentine

That was a great game! Props to Beard for putting up a hell of a fight after the brutal loss of the havocs!

Luciano Sgarbi

Was it Laurence who said something about always deploying like your enemy will seize? I think this game was a cracking example of this!

Good game btw!

Seeing lots of comments about los blocking terrain. I agree more in the middle so an advancing army can hide a bit more and not just get shot to pieces would be a good idea. Not just playing ground floor blocks. Great report as always!

Matt Green

Why didnt beard pay the 2CP for take cover strat at the start of the battle? Also would of been better if he placed his siccarans near the priest so he could of given one of them -1 to be hit.

Awesome Rep guys. Love Beard’s commentary as always! 😀 Baller. Looking forward to the next one.

Might of Heroes only works on one model sadly. So centurions can only be T6 if there are 2 left due to majority toughness. Easy mistake to make though when you use different armies every other day. Great battle report as always 😀

I have to agree to make ground floor LOS blocking despite what the terrain looks like. This was a fun game. I think if Beard had gone first he would have won it in the end. Kudos to Bone for seizing and making the most of it.

Beard, the new models look sick. Loving some of those conversions mate.

Yes, that’s some good fun for me to digest in a dull day at work, fellas. Loving it, as always.

Might of heroes only buffs a model, not the entire unit, that’s quite important.

Also I strongly suggest you start playing bottom floors being los blocking again. Yeah, I mean of course ultramarines shooting range won when they could target pretty much the entire battlefield, lol.

This makes me want interceptors..Just when I thought I was done buying models for awhile..

The way odds and statistics works is that in the long run they will even themselves out. The universe must be balanced So for example since Lawrence rolls so many sixes. That has to be evened out. And that poor person that has to even him out is Beard and that’s why he rolled so many ones.

Andy

I really think it would be better in your games if you treated the bottom floor of buildings as line of sight blocking. It just makes the games better imo.

Been looking forward to this ever since I saw the previews on Instagram. Starting my own Iron Warriors army and have been drawing inspiration from Beards paint scheme. Excellent work as usual dudes!

You guys make Warhammer so much more fun! Please start giving Beard an extra 250 points so he can win a game or two 😉 Haha!

I’ve been looking forward to seeing all these chain cannons!
I do think benediction of darkness only puts a -1 on a single unit however… i think its the invul prayer which is a bubble

Daryl

Yes! Today I find out if I want to add an Alpha Legion detachment of Havocs with Chaincannons to my Thousand Sons. Also, Beard, love the paint job!
