Loved this one.
Was pretty close.

I wish I could watch it further.
There was no option for getting a point Behind Enemy Lines at the end of the game?
It was still a not very good chance, but that could still help out Beard.

Just a legendary list reading by Beard. I could see myself on Tzangoria being lulled into beautiful deep-seeded calm from the braying of the goat horns.

Great work Bone! New to on demand and shout outs from a fellow Australian! Always good to see the harlequins as they are one of my armies. My suggestion for Masques is the Dreaming Shadow (their ability is just as if they are near a space marine banner) – their stratagem and relic are really fun to use. I would also love to hear Bone and The Spider talk about the stratagem The Hero’s Path getting FAQ’ed. The amount of things you can do with the threat of it being used in either player’s turn is very stressful… for the… Read more »

Bone, Another interesting Masque I think you should try is Mindight Sorrow. You’re easily good enough now at the Wrap and Trap that you can take full advantage of a 6” consolidate. I think they are far and away the most disruptive of a very disruptive bunch of options. They allow you to entangle,tie up, and disrupt like nobody’s business. And it isn’t a hard form to remember. With a few well placed psychic powers or deep strike, some foot slogging larger squads might play merry havoc with your enemy’s plans. The only issue I’ve seen is people not really… Read more »

Bone, during your turn two, could you have not charged your transports into some of the rubric marines to shut down some shooting on Beards turn 3?

Jesus beard it’s hard to watch your reports with these rolls! Hahaha love ya bud! Keep up the great work making us laugh!

Again…please think long and hard about a phone app with all your catch phrases.
“Human peanut!”
“Good new everybody”
“7 salty sailors”
….and all that. It would spread like wildfire.

…maybe not the “kissed by a rose” rendition JUST yet…

Seems like Beard and Ahriman forgot their library cards during this game.

Great battle, could have easily gone the other way at points.

I recommend Frozen Stars Bone if you’re worried about remembering Masque rules plus they’re brutal on the charge.

I’m pretty sure smite only hits the closest target to the caster, not sure how Ahriman was getting targeted by some of those smites (1:25:00), they didn’t go off so the game doesn’t change too much however one failed due to beard spending a CP to re-roll his deny which he may not have done if the smite should have hit the full health sorc rather than Ahriman. please correct me if i’m wrong or missing something here.

This game just cements my belief that the tzaangor blob just isn’t reliable, it never feels good to have a 30 man unit just get deleted in one turn by mediocre weapons, and with all the mortars in the meta alot of times you can’t even preemptively protect them by killing the chaff removal. Still, Great bat rep, Honestly ya’ll are the only ones i can watch, no disrespect to the other channels but your quality is just far and away better than others. What were the extra spells the aspiring sorcerers knew?Also did you play 4 Exalted or was… Read more »

Love watching the Harlequins, they are especially BA as Ynnari now. Gotta remember those prismatic grenades Bone. D6 shots, S4, -1 ap is no joke.

Have Thousand Sons ever won on the channel? 😀 (I’m building them as my very first 40k army)

You guys ever think about taking beard to tournaments to roll morale test…. i think as long as you can fit him in the dice bag its perfectly legal

Do you guys have any warp talons? It’d be cool to see them used, i know they’re not optimal, but the raptoral host detachment might actually make them reliable-ish enough. And i’ve been thinking they may not be to bad in a world eaters army. The extra attack overcoming the weakness of them having low number of attacks. Anyway, thanks for another great video!

YES BONE! Great comeback from getting first turn seized! Cannot wait for the Ynarri

Hey B-Bone! Very fun game, keep up the good work! Love seeing the Harlequins in action, given that I play them often myself (though these days I’ve been trying out the Ynnari keyword) Check out the “An Example Made” stratagem when firing with the Death Jester. It doubles your hits (triples if you roll a 6) so you may end up clearing an entire squad with good rolls doing 2 kills, 2d3 mortal wounds and taking 2 off the leadedship. Another stratagem can bump the damage to D3 instead of 1. Those two strats in tandem can kill a 4-wound… Read more »

I just got off work and sat down to paint some rubric marines I bought recently, just started collecting Thousand Sons and here this is waiting for me. Glorious !

Such a shame to see no thousand sons demon princes in the army once again……..so sad 😭😭😭

I feel like I should be named “Bolter Discipline Guy” because every time I watch you guys play, I can’t help but notice when you forget where the rule applies. Helbrute combi-bolters would get FOUR shots, not two! Abaddon is a Terminator, so the Talon of Horus always gets four shots as well! If you ever start adding bikers to your Chaos armies, please for my sanity’s sake remember that those benefit from Bolter Discipline as well. I suppose it’s a nice consolation knowing that Beard seems to be aware of Death To The False Emperor now, despite not seeming… Read more »

Beard: brings lots of rubrics with expensive flamers

Also Beard: immediately charges harlequins with said rubrics and flamers

Rubrics: am I a joke to you?

Excellent game

Can I make a suggestion? It would be quite helpful/useful if you could include a graphic of the whole list and/or just include them in the description information.

Thanks for another BR using Thousand Sons.
Thousand Sons are one of my favorite armies too, but again the list and the way it was played agains harlequins dont really takes me to another level. Ist sad to see Beard always losing a game. I am happy to hear that other models are on their way, please think about souping with Tzeentch Daemons like 2×30 pink Horrors 1×10 Brimstone und a fluxmaster. It still serves the fluff and gives the army some edge.

Maybe I will see Thousand Sons winning a game in the future,…. please.

Cheers

In the 2019 FAQ, didn’t mirror of minds get changed where if the person getting affected by the spell rolls a 6 they automatically break free from it?

Love the content, but it’s a tough watch where my own army is concerned. I genuinely think I’ve seen my beloved Thousand Sons win once in all your videos, and even then, it was on points after getting tabled. Surely we’re not THAT bad. There’s definitely been improvement on remembering rules though, and I’m really happy to hear new units are incoming. Bring on the Daemon Princes and Enlightened and maybe look at a bit of FW. A psychically buffed Hellforged Leviathan anyone? I’d also like to see TS games against more varied armies – not just Grey Knights, Space… Read more »

I love how awkward Bbone can act when Beard is being silly and weird… and then immediately acts sillier and weirder 😀 Keep them vids coming, hope the paperwork on the move is well, moving along! hah…hah.. >.>

I hear you Bone on the shaving rash. Get it in the same area, but on both sides of the neck. Terrible stuff.
