Man, my heart broke on turn 1 when Bone exposed his right flank broodlord. It was totally screened by the big stealer unit after charge moves, but then on an unnecessary consolidate move he exposed it, and BLAM Lawrence killed it in the next shooting phase. Correct character screening can win you the game! If that broodlord had been around later, he could have killed Tauroxes, buffed the stealers, and prevented morale failures. Would have changed the game!

Heya, I have a question! Why are 4+ invulnerable saves rolled in round 1 for the genestealers?

You rate The Fellowship of the Ring OVER THE TWO TOWERS AND RETURN OF THE KING? I used to think you were cool Lawrence…

Joined the party a bit late on this one but i got to say this was one of the best. 2 awesome armies, the bonus aliens references and very well played tactically by both whilst keeping the fun going. The hobby done right in my humble opinion. Looking forward to this tale of 4 gamers style format. Ive done it with some mates in the past culminating in a final weekend up at warhammer world and really was my best ever overall hobby experience. Again, the hobby done right. Spider i get the flesh tearers issue i got the same… Read more »

Talking about getting some ‘pros’ in to contribute to tactica games, are you looking to get in the narrative heroes out there for your narrative games? *Cough-Winters-cough*

When I spotted that guardsman with the chainsaw bayonet I grinned 😀 Hands down the coolest thing to ever be put on a gun.

It’s great to see a valiant. I know they’re not try-hard like the castellan, but one thing i love about this channel is you try different things. It shows that high tier players can still use a variety of units.

Great game guys. I always like seeing the Scions on the table. It was your army that inspired me to collect my own, and I’ve been having a lot of fun with them. The drop force is crazy good with two command squads with all plasma in a Valkyrie. Those 8 guys killed a full health Imperial Knight on the weekend. I couple things I did notice though. Tempestor (squad Sargent) hit on 3s in combat. I was really hoping you’d see this when you looked up to see what scions hit on in combat. Also, I’m glad you guys… Read more »

@Lawrence I played with my nids vs vigilus airborne cavalery – i just spammed them to death with swarm army – he was not able to shoot all from table so i scored objectives. it was 1k battle where he had 3 valkiries with spam of hot shot tempestus. i just took as many genes as i could and 40 termagants with 20 devovers plus 24 hormahants and only two neuronthropes, my genes wraped and trapperd some tempestus and it was enough to gain points for final victory.

@B-Bone how u fit it all in 2k list – for me it was about 50pts more than 2k. I run simmilar list but with 2 exocrines and neuronthrope instead of tfexes and one broodlord. I tried to copy ur list but it was not possible to fit 2×19 +20 genes and two tfexes in 2k along with swarmy 2x broodlord and malanthrope and HG with impalers.

I love everything about the Genome, especially the constant starship trooper/aliens comments. In regards to the “flying circus” style guard lists, I run one in combination with my emperors fist armoured company, SO MUCH FUN!

B-Bone, what about the Zoanthropes? The 3+ invulnerable saves, 24″ smite and the 3 flat mortal wounds for 6 models.

What is your favorite genera or top 2 if you can’t decide the Lawrence?

Nice game but I would much rather see Lawrence play a pure knight list or pure Tempestus. I have both armies and while they go very well together they are far more interesting alone. Tempestus drop force now! 🙂

Best fantasy film has to be Willow. Conan was great and is well deserved. But come on Willow is well up there. Also Dark Crystal needs an honorable mention also…

I love your Lawrence vs Bone battle reports, but the problem is they all seem the same. Every match goes like this: 1: Bone has a slight advantage early on 2: Lawrence plays up how behind he is, stating that he ‘needs a miracle’ to get back in the game 3: Bone falls for it every time, letting his guard down and taking unnecessary risks 4: Lawrence knuckles down and plays the mission 5: Lawrence, off-screen, sacrifices a sheep (or perhaps just a brand new d20) to the Dice Gods 6: The Dice Gods curse Bone with terrible rolls and… Read more »

I might be wrong but I am pretty sure Spider didn’t remove cards from his deck when he rolled a 4? If you read the mission against does say ‘and so on’ after it says remove objective 1 and 2! I played that one Friday night. Excellent game though fellas, I really enjoy the analysis mid game.

I’m with bone on the kroot codex, that would be cool. Should try a tau list with a lot anyways, i think Carnivores are viable.

Lawrence, if you haven’t already then you need to watch the animated starship troopers series. It’s cheezy as you like but still a decent waste of time

That nid army does need an exocrene pretty badly though lol. And some zoanthropes.

You guys both do an outstanding job fellas. I point out errors more so to inform other viewers and because it’s fun to discuss tactical decisions and am not meaning to be critical at all. We all make mistakes, most of us don’t have it on film or reviewed by so many others. So speaking for myself I think you guys are doing amazing work and I really appreciate how much effort and attention you put into trying to improve. It’s obvious you guys love your jobs and it shows. I am proud of you fellas! Thanks for taking me… Read more »

Conan the Barbarian is possibly the best documentary film I have ever seen. It was the best follow up sequel we could have ever gotten to follow up Pumping Iron, after Swcharzenegger killed so many snakes they were forced into hiding on commercial planes where they only had to deal with Samuel L. Jackson. It’s a brutal world this Earth.

Bone, my favourit film of all time is Aliens. I studied film at uni and people were saying “Citizen Kane” was their favourite or “Gone with the wind” etc…..I was just like “How do I get out of this chicken ****** outfit” lol

You know Bone, sometimes I think Lawrence DOES want to alarm you.

Great game guys! Bone, you gotta look at the shooting strats for Tyranids, really helpful for your guns. +1 to wound on a monster makes that Tyrannofex a beast, and +1 damage for double shooting Hive Guard would have been absolutely helpful. Keep it up, you’re getting better every time I watch!

Please dont let people saying why didnt you run ‘this’ keep you from bringing orks. I always want to see more orks! 😀
But I like seeing all the armies so I really like that you are fleshing out so each army has massive variants. Good job guys and I hope the move (which is happening now I think?) is doing as well as the fundraiser for it is!
Cheers

The Spider is right!! Always. Conan is bloody fantastic.

To be fair, you never tried the Foul Blightspawn (I have done my best to mention them to you guys on here :)) which is videly regarded as one of the best character choices of the Death Guard, and while I’m aware you are probably lacking the missile launcher arms for the Helbrutes and won’t proxy (I wouldnt either), you also missed the experience of how awesome they are when you Fire Frenzy the Las/Missle brutes.

You can live that air cav dream now Lawrence with all the extra dosh … still can’t get over how much you guys have raised! Bonkers! You could maybe even get a sneaky studio pure guard army… a custom regiment or something like that…. I do miss the colonels presence even if he did rep the girly man boy Cadians

Great game. Normal rolling in that one turn means Bone wins by at least two points in the end. I hate that no one will be playing Death Guard or Space Wolves in the tale of 4 gamers. Two of the most epic and unique space marine legions should be repped!

Loved this game 😀 I can relate to Bone every time I play against one of my mates – he’s also got the affliction that is Laurence luck. Even when i’m winning I feel like I’m losing.

Bone: Rending claws are minus 4, not minus 3, when rolling sixes to wound. Don’t give the Spider any chances to roll 6up saves when you don’t have to 😉

Regarding the Valiant:
Have you considered running it with House Griffith? They have a stratagem called “Dragonslayer” wich gives you +1 to wound rolls versus targets containing 10 wounds or more. Combined with traitor’s pyre, it is pretty brutal.
