Is this mission in Chapter Approved? Must have missed it. Location and page number would be greatly appreciated.

I know this is a fun battle report, but if ever you want to make the Death Guard a bit punchier, you can soup in (I know, sorry) a Chaos Space Marine Sorcerer to the Death Guard army. It will cost you 1CP (or none, if you have a unit of cultists too for a patrol), but because the powers affect Heretic Astartes units, you can use both Warptime and Prescience. Imagine a unit of 3 Blight Haulers with Prescience (3 missile launchers and 3 multi-meltas) hitting on 2s. It also gives you access to their strategems, and using the… Read more »

2 OF MY FAVE ARMIES!! KEEP EM CUMMING!!

“We don’t do proxies”. Proceed to run another model as a Malignant Plaguecaster. 😀 Classic.

Great show guys. I’m already struggling to keep up with all the content (don’t want to miss a video) once you go to the new studio it’ll be a full time commitment just to watch you guys. 😀 Good times.

Ooooh new armies for all. Hard choice, but I think go with your gut on which you think will be most fun! Never had any luck starting armies that I wasn’t really in love with. As for death guard as purge, go for it. I agree, looks plenty good as purge.

Love t watching you guys do battle, always so entertaining!!
Bring the Purge, it would be truly epic to see them slide over the battlefield!! Bring it! 🙂
Everytime the camera cuts from Mr B Bone to the battle and Lawerence chuckles saying he ‘may’ have just been called something off camera, I spray tea!! Hilarious!!
Great job! 🙂

BBone! I think you had this one in the bag, but where you could have made a better decision (there is no wrong, but sometimes there are better decisions) by waiting with your DPs behind your PMs in that turn 3. Smiting the Chainlord and the Raptors off of those 2 squads of PMs would have given you a huge advantage. The PMs could have shot the Raptors and begun clearing the Cultists. Not freeing the PMs really hurt. Moving 360pts of DPs to attack the 150ish pts of Raptors wasn’t worth it. In some of your other batreps you… Read more »

I had hoped you’d say a studio Mechanicus army. They are getting new toys too 😀

Keep pronouncing the Warmaster’s name however you want – and keep saying it with reckless Abaddon 😉

And: Yes! Please use the old DG models as the Purge!

With the new studio and the added content (which is really awesome!) will there be any more kill team bat reps?

Don’t forget, you can still attack all the times with the talon, but then you roll d6 for extra hits with drachnyen every time you fight (you don’t get a choice, it says every time you fight)

Great stuff, guys. Purge FTW. Don’t forget to add black…..and you can still use your Blight Launchers, just put those together into PM squads with some CC weapons as Elites.

Would love to see Purge vs Death Guard in a narrative Vigilus-themed batrep about their little “doctrinal dispute” that happened there.

i’m really confused why Lawrence things talon of horus is bad. You’re getting 7 attacks with a powerfist that hits on 2s. Then the extra sword attacks on top of that.

You can get knight armor that is chaos themed made on etsy, easy snap on good to go

When will the new forum go live?

Quick rules clarification for models with weapons that grant additional hits (e.g. Abaddon).

You can 1st attack with all 6 attacks with the Talon of Horus and then Drach’nyen will provide another D6 additional attacks with the Drach’nyen profile.

Same goes with Chainlord and the dual chainswords. 4 attacks base, +2 attacks with the relic chainsword (6 attacks total with the relic) and then you can make 1 more attack roll with the standard chainsword.

Already after 1h this game is Epic. Loving the cinematic explosions (and fair spread of luck, good to see Bone’s morale not close to the Mariana trench LOL). Talking about shows, when are we getting the Ghostmaker campaign Finale ??

Jacob Holmström

You should have remembered the fleshmower being strength +2 and also a plagueweapon. Smiting the one wound Chainlord could have been a good idea, freeing up the plague marines to shoot stuff.

Best regards,
Captain Hindsight 😉

I would love a live stream of bone sitting by the fire in a comfy chair, a beverage of his choice reading homebrew lore or doing a general chat with fans!

Another enjoiable Battle report 😉
Bone got unlky with his lawnmowers and lascannon rolls, but that’s how it goes.

And if you are looking for more Talaran models ‎Cassie Rouse‎ on Warhammer and warhammer 40k for sale or buy is sellina some 38 of them.
(just looking forward to more IG 😉 )

I’d love to see the old Deathguard models used as The Purge.

Yes! Tale of four Warlords, new studio, so much HYPE!

Let me think now… We need Daemons in some form, would love to see Slaanesh, especially with all the gorgeous new models.

Regarding the Melta, this is the reason I scrapped my Chaos project: 1 chaincannon per Havoc box, 1 combibolter and chainaxe per terminator box, I mean seriously GW? The standard loadout is combibolter/chainaxe and you get one of that choice? Yeah, just no, never buying that.

Late-night with B-Bone: by the fire, wearing a smoking jacket, reading us the Horus Heresy novels.

Thanks for battle report.
Mr. Bone despite some bad roll on turn 3 you roll like crazy in few last games – haven’t you been bitten by Mr. Spider recently?

P.S. Also in round 3 you make at least 7 disgustingly resilient saves on your turn no need to wait for Mr. Spiders turn.

I like to think of Abaddon said in a southern drawl accent. Making “He’s a bad one” into “He’s a bad’un.”

Just imagine Arthur Morgan from Red Dead Redemption 2 saying it, haha

Grabs some popcorn. Looks forward to watching old Top-Knot getting infected with Nurgles Rot! Death to the Black Legion!

Overcome your fears!

Please, please, please some Alpha Legion!

Really looking forward to the new show where the lads build new armies. Based on what’s been said here’s my predictions/recommendations, depending on who’s taking part: Lawrence – Chaos Warband: as he’s said, will be great to see the warband traits. Bone – Tyranids: it’s where your heart is mate. Beard – Eldar (guessing Craftworlds): for some unholy reason as he has said in a livestream. Stig – Orks (Bloodaxes): he has said in a past livestream, new orks is always good. Chef – Space Marines: this is the toughest for me to guess at, Chef already plays Necrons and… Read more »

Bone painting the army *he* likes won‘t ever make me sad. Also: I‘d adore custom painted Kevin!

Glad to hear you won’t be doing proxy models 🙂

No one company/podcast can cover every single version of an armies Codex+FW

Late nights with BBone sounds great 😉

P.s. Abba Don is clearly the 5th member of a 70’s pop group who was kicked out coz his name didn’t fit the initials.

Your Black Legion, Your weak smurfs, +1 LD and can Run and Gun with Rapid Fire as Assault. So that raptor would have not run.

A vote for B-Bone starting Death Guard, and for a massive F-Yeah for using the old DG minis as the Purge

I was really hoping Bone would bring Typhus so you guys could have a first captain off!

“but are you going to talk about your list?..”

And in the meanwhile the Despot leader of the Black Legion, the arch-nemesis of the Imperium, the holder of Horus’ Clay is crying bitter tears….

Abba-dons re-roll aura goes into god mode when in CC with imperial units 5+ DTFE i re-roll everything that isn’t a 5+ get a stupid number of attacks worth a check out i’ve seen anything between 16-20 odd attacks

CreativeName

What is everyone’s thoughts on taking a page from many of the AoS rules where many auras require units to be fully with X inches to gain the benefits of the aura? A unit of cultists being fearless isn’t a big deal to me but it’s silly one cultist within 12 inches makes a daisy chain of them completely fearless. I like this for this scenario and all the other re-roll auras too

Awesome stuff! Would love to see the FW DG ran as the Purge in the future – though I guess that might not be as necessary if Lawrence rocks a renegade chapter as part of a Tale of Four Gamers. Also – remember that the Black Legion are +1 LD across the board, so that lone raptor would’ve stayed kicking 😉

It would be sill NOT to use your Death Guard models for a Purge list. They’re literally the same thing minus the DG keyword.

Anyone who disagrees should be willing to pay for the new models, then build and paint them, because it would be a ridiculous waste of money and time 🙂

I am absolutely okay with seeing this old Death Guard models become The Purge chaos warband!

For tactical cascade there is no limit on the cards you can have in your hand. The only limit is that at most you can generate 6 a turn. All the other maelstrom missions mention a hand limit, but this is not the case in tactical cascade.

Under these conditions starting with 2 cards, you’d have at most 13 cards at turn 5, 16 cards at turn 6 and 19 cards at turn 7.
