Hi Guys! Awesome stuff, as usual 🙂

At about 1:26-1:27 mark, Beard was firing at Guardians, and Bone in the end said that 5 are killed, while in fact there were 9 killed. A mistake?

Hey Bone, would you consider putting some dark reapers in that list? I love the list but didn’t know if you were going for a theme with this list or not.

Testing a post as well, but excited to be part of the community now! Loving seeing these Aeldari bat.reps and looking forward to going back and watching old posts as a new-to-40K player.

Beard, beard, beard. Wait… you’re without a beard now… so would we just call you w-eard? I think young Benjamin has been watching D.R.A.G.O.N, a big improvement in his play I see! Lol I enjoyed that, cheers, you know you guys are doing a good job when a face stomping is still fun to watch!

Yep Chain Havoc’s are definitely a one shot and done unit (well 32 😁), they just still die too easy unless buffed up. Still a great game.

I also paused at either exactly the right or wrong moment…

Great game guys! I think this might have been said already but any attempt to cast Smite increases the Warp Charge, even failed rolls.

Also, interesting with Eldrad you get the plus one to his cast even if the power was denied. The rule is when he passes a psychic test. The test is passed, but the affects get resisted so would still get the plus one.

GG.

Right bit random but i have a theory that beards beard is actually a curse, hense all the ones he rolls…. i think if beard was to go completely bald i.e. head and face his rolling would improve and he would look quite dashing in the process

Poor Beard…he is like that character from Star Trek who constantly gets beat up. you know, the Klingon one

I do love the very dark scheme on those hemlocks.

Aww that warlord kill reminds me of a very old batrep from GW. The one where AC made captain “Tycho” but gave him no wargear. He then got one shotted by the warphead xD

Great victory for the black guardians of ulthwe. I run a similar list and the blob of 20 defender guardians with all the buffs is normally my mvp. Rules wise I think failed smites do count when calculating the warp charge value. On a tactical point I was a bit confused by your warlords movement. Why was Beard’s warlord in the rhino deep in enermy territory on hos own in the first place? And why did Bone’s warlord hide in the wave serpent? Those reroll 1s and the farming would have been nice and Beard had no snipers! Still a… Read more »

Epic as always gents! Am I a bad human for always being amused when I see Beard roll an unnatural amount of 1’s in games? Hmmm….

Great game as always. I love Bone’s little pre-dice roll hand flap 😂

1:13:28 Bone should not have used that CP reroll because the hemlock grants a 12″ bubble of -2 leadership. The marine would then have leadership 5 so Beard would need a 1 to pass.

Very entertaining gents. The rhino blowing up and killing the chaos lord was too funny

Beard and Bone batrep people, I don’t wanna alarm anyone but there’s some serious dice rolling going on here! Fun and frolics for all the family(Slaanesh style)!

Thanks for the battle report!
That feeling than you roll an 6 on save… for your opponent! Poor Mr. Beard. May be it is the sign you should try some Ulthwe?

I died when that chump master of executions died in the rhino lol. Beard that dude looks awesome but his rules are terrible for his cost, please take something else ha ha.

Las Canon or auto canon havocs are still the best load out. Chain canons are best on chaos space marine troops. That list has 11 chain canons… thats 220 just for the gats.

Hey BBone, it was hands down your best outing you’ve had with Ulthwe but I knwo you could do better! I know you are really limited on the models you have but just consider using a few tricks: 1. The opposite powers of the Runes of Battle are two different powers and can be cast on the same turn. Thus why not use Protect to get those guardians to 3++? Getting a better save is one thing, but as an Eldar player getting a 24 W squad of obsec elves on top of an objective protected by storm shield grade… Read more »

Excellent stuff. Bone’s reaction to the kill roll for the Master of Executions made my bloody day though!

Would love to see Beard’s whole collection of Iron Warriors on a table in apocalypse game. Great game 😀

Oh man, that Rhino exlpoding and killing the executioner was brutal luck! needs to get a little minion man to hang out with and take explosions for him. Good game though love it when the iron warriors are on!

Toby Magill

Awesome battle report as always. I am holding out for the day Beards luck changes and he out Spiders the Spider at rolling 6s.

It’s a really niche rule, but the Eldar “Ancient Doom” armywide rule came up a lot in this game! ANCIENT DOOM: “You can re-roll failed hit rolls in the Fight phase for this unit in a turn in which it charges or is charged by a SLAANESH unit. However, you must add 1 to Morale tests for this unit if it is within 3″ of any SLAANESH units.” This was relevant quite a few times in that messy centre blob, but hey, it’s such a niche rule I completely understand forgetting it, especially when Craftworlds isn’t your main jam! Plus… Read more »

Last time i played 40k was about 20 years ago we turned it into a drinking game every dead model you drank two fingers from a pint every six rolled was a shot of vodka or tequila i havent played since.

I need more of this in my life great game fellas loving everything you do.

Haha wow – this is why you don’t put your warlord alone in a transport (learnt from bad experiences just like beard has). But it was a TV moment that’s for sure..
thanks for the great game lads!

I have no idea what Beard did to the dice gods, but he needs to make some kind of sacrifice to get back in their good graces.

Excellent work as ever guys. I believe Mr. Beard(ish) said most of his army had mark of Slaanesh, this would mean Bone would be re-rolling hits in combat but would have to add one to morale tests within 3” of any Slaanesh units.

“Should I use my last command point to keep him aliiive.
I think I will, because I need a sorcerer to surviiive!
