Honestly, I’d prefer to see videos that display tactics and strategy rather than stupidly lucky rolls. You guys should consider just tossing out the stupid rolls. They basically ruin all the work you do in making these videos.

A question for bone is did you consider deciding to 2nd and if you did why did you decide against it?

Awesome battle report as usual guys but one error I notice Lawrence making with the cultists was he was attacking them all on the marine on the objective, even though one was outside one inch and closest to the other marine

B-Bone is absolutely correct mortal wounds are treated individually and as such cannot be reduced.

I’m laying in bed recovering from surgery and watching this battle report. I’m laughing sooo hard and my incision spots are killing me, but it is worth every jolt of pain from my stitches to watch Bone’s reactions to those incredibly lucky Lawrence rolls! The shot of Bone leaving the studio outside had me wincing in pain, but I couldn’t stop watching. Well done guys… you rock!

If you look closely you can actually pinpoint the second Bone’s heart rips in half.

That was horrible… I feel tilted watching… I think Bone might have a career in anger management training after this.

I have to ask the obvious question: has anyone checked those red gem dice Spider always uses? Are they properly balanced? It is amazing how lucky he is every game since AFAIK he only ever uses those dice. Let’s see someone else use those dice and Spider with some other sets of TT dice in use, eh? :p Bone, heart goes out to you, I don’t blame you for walking out. There’s nothing you can do in a game when the opponent is rolling like that.

Cool battle report! But that dice roll of Lawrence… No way to stay sane after that!

Cool battle report. Some small rules points:
– The banner only allows models (such as Centurions) to shoot 1 weapon upon dying, not all. Gotta pick one Heavy or the Hurricane bolter.

– Part of the fun of Lord Discordants is their own innate +1 to hit, giving them Death to the False Emperor on a 5+. There’d be at least another 5 or so attacks going into the Razorback, for example.

– On the flip side, Forgefiend Autocannons would wound Marines only on 3+, not 2+

Guilliman doesn’t benefit from the Chapter Tactic: he is a monster, not infantry!

Love seeing Abaddon go up against Guilliman it is a clash of titans. One of these days bone is going to walk out of the studio and we are never going to see him again i fear.

Bone, you need to perform a dark ritual at the next full moon. Or maybe a voodoo doll in spiders image would be more appropriate? Either way there’s some weird juju in the studio. I suggest you perform an exorcism in the new place when you move. Start fresh. That kind of rolling just isn’t normal!

Oh BBone :(. Did I miss something or is there a reason you didn’t cast might of heroes on the razorback or one centurion that was on the objective turn 2? I don’t think it ended up mattering, but still. I think it’s time to retire those asscan razorbacks. Time and time again I see them opened up like tin cans and out ranged. Sure mathematically they seem great, but that’s pretty worthless when you can’t shoot with them more than once. Maybe throw a dakka repulsor in there instead of two razorbacks. You might be thinking “that’s not much… Read more »

great game, I think Bone should have a salary increase having to support that “Insane Spider Dice Rolling”. Here’s a novel idea for a new T-shirt for Spider: “Normal day at the office” with a picture of 10 dice, six showing 5s and four showing 6s… at least that way everyone is warned in advance…. 😉

You guys are just fantastic. Happy that I finally put in for the new studio, can’t wait for all the fantastic content that’s coming. I see that you’re almost at 50k, you guys deserve it and I wish you all the best.
Also, why is Lawrence using red dice when playing black legion? Isn’t that heresy against the heresy? (Think I just went cross-eyed.) 🙂

I like to think that the 1 rolled for Drach’nyen represents guilliman meeting abaddon’s charge, the two swords meet and the emperors sword shatters Drach’nyen! Then all the damage guilliman suffers is from the deamon blades death shriek and the release of all the souls it has taken.

Thanks for filming the walkout. Loved it. B-bone, how satisfying was it to slay Abbadon?

On a side note, is there any chance of you making downloadable videos? I love to watch, but due to the nature or my job its hard to sit and watch a video in one sitting and often takes me 3 days to get through.

If your sergeants had pistols in that melee in the ultramarine’s back lines you may have been able to shoot and thus eliminate some more cultists to force a morale issue 🙂

So if I buy some gem dice do they come with spider luck ? or does that cost extra >.>

Great game, should have been an Ultramarines victory. Spider has an unnatural gift with dice, one could say a dark gift… I enjoy the advanced play videos and over the last 6 months or so it is clear the leaps and bounds Bone is making in skill. From an external point of view the only factor Bone is not taking into account is that he is playing Spider. As an example if he was playing Beard it would have been an earlier Ultramarine win as the dice always favours the other way. To offset Lawerence your list has to account… Read more »

It may just be me but I think Lawrence may have been forgetting about the moral phase with his cultists, especially after Abbadon was killed. Mr. Bone you might need to have some words with him.

I don’t mean to give Lawrence any more help than the Chaos God of Dice is already giving him, but isn’t Abaddon technically a terminator? I’ve noticed twice now you guys rolling two shots from the Talon of Horus instead of the four he’s entitled to thanks to bolter discipline, and since you don’t seem to be rolling them at a penalty I don’t think you’re using the Black Legion trait to advance and fire… The only reason he gets the deep strike rule is because he’s in a terminator suit, so he should always put out 4 shots unless… Read more »

One thing I notice reasonably often is you play with very little area terrain for your battle reports. You therefore seem to never have any cover saves/modifiers. In T1, the hellblasters are or could be sat in a crater and the cover save would have made a reasonable difference to the outcome, which was sadly predictable afterwards.

What an epic story this game had. Guilliman lead his forces against overwhelming odds and when the hour was most desperate, he lured the chosen avatar of the Chaos into single combat. He suffered terrible wounds from the Talon of Horus but, using the Emperor’s Sword, he was able to utterly destroy the Chaos Gods chosen one. However it was a phyrric victory as he eventually succumbed to his wounds. He had defeated the Warmaster but only at the most terrible cost. He had sacrificed himself to save the Imperium but who will protect it now he is gone? So,… Read more »

The hellfire shell stratagem on the centurions is a great little trick, only uses one of the two heavy Bolters if I’m reading it right!
