Cool game guys, quite a slugfest! Nice to see the Sanga improving as well. As Bone said during the wrap-up, trying to think ahead in regards to points scoring is key to winning out on the mission. Also, don’t forget to use those Scouts to screen out potential deep strikes/teleports… 30 (or 60) Boys in your backline is never going to be a good look! And don’t be afraid to use those Death Company marines defensively – knowing that Bone had to come towards you, you could have kept them back for a counter-charge while shredding his units apart with… Read more »

The model used as a deffkilla wartrike, is actually zhadsnark da rippa (forgeworld). Bases are different etc, was wondering if you will be getting both at some point?

Not sure if people already told you, but i think that on the last wond on your psyker (1.29 in the vidio] u should have used the rerol on the 2+ save insded on the 5+ Fnp. =) Nice game tho boys, keep it up! =D /Love from Sweden

Thank’s everyone for the comments & feedback, it really is appreciated. I know you guys really wanna see the Blood Angels do well and I’m trying my hardest. We’ll get there.

Also, I may have mentioned in this video that’ll finally be giving some of my characters proper names. I’ll be posting them on Instagram very soon @21st_century_sanga

Cheers guys! Peace.

Just a quick one… I love watching Sanga play as an Ausi myself! And I’m still learning as a new player too, however why did he take away his intersessors bolt rifle from the sargent, the chainsword is a free upgrade and he gets to keep the bolt rifle and ther bolt pistol. such a beautifully painted army though, good job man!

nice report as always guys, unlucky sanga I came unstuck against the ork trickery and angels are so hard to grab a win. i am disapointed with dc i just cant get them to work i am using 6 sang guard with fists and rerolls form an ancient warlord, maybe have a go with a list that has a knight backup, its a bullet magnet but might give the guard/dc enough of a distraction to get them where they need to be. i have a list with a crusader and 2 helvirins in it for the poits and traits i… Read more »

Bit of a weird one but it seems you just didn’t take CC range into account this game! Only models within 1″ of an enemy model, or those within 1″ of those of your models that fit the first criterion, can make a cc attack. Your orks can’t just choose to punch that marine 12″ away! It’s quite common for a big blob not to be able to get all their attacks on a single target. Also pretty sure that when you take a model off the board and set it back up it wipes any buffs you had on… Read more »

Hahahha I started writing a comment when i heard you humming it as i recognised it but Sanga mentioned it, I have that song stuck in my head all year long – ‘I whanna whish you a merry christmas’ Puerto rico’s finest .. i get told to stop singing it a lot at work

Thanks for the game! A bit of advice: put your slammies in deepstrike, always descent of angels with DC instead of forlorn fury and for god’s sake put one of the DC within 6 of Lemartes for the rerolls to hit. You lose four attacks but those rerolls are much needed. Also, make sure you get a psychic phase. Mephiston should have been mid board and those bolters should have been put to use. If you are going to strike, strike hard! Last of all, shoot all the weapons that can instakill a multi wound target first and then top… Read more »

Bone you should try rocking a Trukk or two filled with 10 Tankbustas and two bombsquigs in each. As Evil Sunz they are awesome 🙂 Good Game Gents and it was good to see Rob again. Cheers from Denmark! Waaagh!

Sad day out for the Blood Angels. I play them as my Imperium army and still have yet to win a game. Death Company don’t hit hard enough and fall over to a stiff breeze, a 3+ save just doesn’t do it. I would dearly love for them to have 2 wounds and 3 attacks base but they don’t and it’s sad. (I think that would make them much better). If you’re going for the turn 1 charge I think you must spend the CP for the 3d6 charge for Lemartes, you have to make every hit count. What I’ve… Read more »

B-Bone, you might wanne try a bunch of Tankbustas (instead or in addition to the Lootas). Esp with Evil Sunz, in that case they can advance and still hit on 5 or combine them with more Dakka. 15 Tankbustas shooting at a vehicle with more dakke is certain doom (re-rolling all hits against vehicles).

Anyway doing a great Job, go far Nijal Bigtooth, damn good lad :).

I always really like seeing the games with Sanga as i love seeing his blood angels in the board and i am kind of in the same boat as well so i always learn something as well 🙂

The Blood angles need to be more active with CP use especially in the ork turn. No interrupts used, no re roll of Mephistons 2+ save rather it was wasted on the 5+. And that lone Primaris should probably have been saved with an Insane bravery stratigem to tie down that entire unit, although it was reasonable to expect that to be passed I suppose. Also need to learn the tricksy combat shenanigans, they are really important for these elite armies.

Fun games and great to see Sanga learning.

I did feel for you though when Bone reminded to use a CP to re-roll the 5+ FNP but not the 2+ armour on Mephiston 😪

Great to see the Sanga back in the house with his Blood Angels. Alot of comments that this BA list didn’t have the legs to win this match up but I think it was still possible with some clever play. If I may offer some suggestions, in Turn 2 when you charged the orcs behind you, while I agree with doing this move to slow them down you didn’t execute the move very well. When charging into a large unit like a mob of 30 boys, just remember you only need to get within 1″ of an enemy, or within… Read more »

You can’t actually take the Artisan of War warlord trait with any of the Relics of Baal because the trait expressly says they don’t benefit from it. Which is weird, but I guess they don’t want you to have a Thunder Hammer that hits on 2’s doing D4 all the time.

Paul Shobrook

Slight miss match maybe? Sanga you are playing one of the hardest armies to do well with at the moment in 8th. Sure souped up smash captains and scouts will do well but as a pure army your up against it in most games. Sure a couple of decisions didn’t go your way, but hey that’s 40k coming from a Necron and Ultramarine player. Blood Angels arnt in a good spot but bravo for persisting with them, your painting is top class and love for the army is admirable to say the least. Keep fighting, keep rolling them dice your… Read more »

Gents one thing you def missed from your post match analysis is the fact the Orks are waaaaaay more powerful than Blood Angels right now! When you look at the Awsome stratagems and unit options they have available to them it was always going to be tough for any marine player to win this one (Guilliman Ultramarines would be a closer match up). Sanga I would drop the storm ravens next time and get more boots on the ground!
Great bat rep as always lads 👍🏻

As always a nice report.. Fun to see the orkz doing what they do best in a real fluffy list (no true ork list has fewer boyz than this i feel). Being a BA player myself I think I can see some pointers to Sanger… Completely agree with your post game analysis, but I would add the following; – Intercessor sergeants can get their bolder + chainsword, so you missed out on 2 shots and an extra attack for each one of them (3 base + chainsword). – You’re paying a premium for 2 big transport ships but you’re not… Read more »

A number of comments here banging on about Sanga’s list or target priority are carbon copies of critiques people have said in previous BA videos. By and large, Sanga is running one of the worst armies in the game (statistically slightly better than GK), and he’s a new player. The struggles he faces with DC, wildly swingy charge rolls and make-or-break combats are something that most BA players run into on a regular basis, myself included. He’s doing a fantastic job, his painting is out of this world, and y’all need to relax and realize BA are a huge handicap… Read more »

Welcome back, Sanga! Good to see the Sons of Sanguinius taking on the stinky green hordes. You guys REALLY should do some AoS batreps as well as 40k. Im currently assembling a Sylvaneth army as a I catch up on all the amazing content for On Demand!

I didn’t even want to finish this report after the abysmal wound rolls by the death company in the first turn lol! On a separate note, I see a lot of people in the comments saying he should have better target priority but saying he should have better target priority without naming what should have been his better targets and when is just spouting a unhelpful platitudes. You might well say he should have worked harder. I think “target priority” or not he was going to have a tough time using the resources available to him to cut through the… Read more »

Thank for the Battle Report! Always glad to see Da Waaaaghhh!
Also so far I realize that Mr. Bone has an strange superpower: to roll the exactly same dice on the re-roll! It happen in roughly on 90% re-rolls.

unfortunately I think Sanga loses this game 9 times out of 10. That BA list do not really have the ability to play objective missions outside of soup, and units like death company almost always disappoint. Compare them to what the Ork boys, who are troops, did to the two squads that charged them! Not being -1, only getting black rage saves on 6+, only having leadership 7, + the Orks get inherent re rolls to charges without character support! As a unit that is supposed to be ‘screen clearance’ they are fantastically bad at it. You can try to… Read more »

Ouch, this was a painful one. Unfortunately a bit of a mismatch with the lists but hopefully we’ll see the Sanga back with a revised BA list

Jonathan Philo

I thought the death company would be better used to clear up damaged units. Almost like a cavalry unit. With charging them so far from any allies left them at risk of being destroyed quickly. Orks needed 2 turns to get to you. Minus the jump. Could have used your airships to weaken the Ork units at range.
With the orks will you be investing in newer units?
Would you be doing a new space wolves army?

Not gonna lie, i always pictured Orks as sounding australian……. Maybe ham up the aussie accent or style next game. Give us an auld giggle

Andy Harrison

Sanga, when you re-rolled Lemartes charge, that was a mistake. The chances of rolling a five or six on one die are actually much better than rolling a nine on two dice.

Feel bad for Sanga, he may as well be playing with Grey Knights it’s that kinda hard mode when you’re a new player to the game playing an army that’s low tier as the BA’s. Does still make the odd choice like paying a CP to attack D3 more times vs that Warboss, he was so unbelievably dead irrespective of those extra attacks. But it’s good to see him released from the basement and his painting duties 😂! Getting better though! Keep it up. Also please get Little Dragon on with his Crimson fists to face the Orks! A space… Read more »

Sanga, when you were saving Mephiston you should have rerolled that 1 for save not the FNP!

Hope to see some other Kultures used in batreps as well. Would be interesting to see a Goff list with this many boys getting exploding 6s in combat, but needing more help getting there. Great game showing the powah of da WAAAAAGH!!!

It was so painful watching Sanga lose Mephiston, using his reroll on a 5+ shrug when he could have just rerolled a 2+ armor save. Bone! Coach him better! 😂

brutal. couldn’t watch it just flipped through it. from the lists alone it was going to be a strong orc win no matter what he did. need to dial that ork list back a lot to make it a fun game for the BAs.

Another great bat rep from you 2 and always great to see Sanga on the channel as a blood angels player myself! Completely agree with all the points in the wrap up especially with needing 15 in the dc unit to make them truly effective turn one. I’ve said it before and you mentioned it before the battle but yes defo get Astorath involved I’ve been using him recently and his once per battle ability can really change the game especially on a turn one charge with a dc blob! Hopefully you can bring him next time Sanga if you… Read more »

Hey Sanga, little tip on 2d6 odds! – when you failed the charge with Lemartes turn 1, you elected to reroll both dice instead of one, because if you re-rolled the one, you would need a 5 on 1 die as oposed to the 9 on both dice – with how the odds add up it is actually more likely to get the 5 on 1 die than the 9 – getting a 9 is actually deceptively difficult as its actually only a 28% chance of success (as opposed to the 33% chance of rolling the 5) – just a… Read more »
