Bone, when you shot and killed Abadon, it looked like the cultists on the right were closer to the Baneblade!

I made a gift for both Beard and the BBone coming your way in 2 weeks!

I cal a pizza sandwich when you make a frozen pizza, fold it in half and eat the entire thing.

Soooooooooooo I think the bane blade couldn’t shoot abbadon because the cultists were closer, the smite from the chaos psyker would’ve hit the guys in combat with the decimator and not the veterans. Cause smite hits the closest unit regardless if in combat or not (its a great way to get guys out of combat and shoot in your turn). So that means all the shooting from turn 3 of chaos probably shouldn’t have wiped all those characters. I’m sorry if I missed something and I’m not actually right in any of this regard. I don’t mean to rain on… Read more »

Awesome game guys, and great news. Bone, why can’t you roll like that against Lawrence?

Congrats on the mid game newsflash guys! Very happy to hear things are working out.

Beard, have you considered using the daemon engine vigilus specialist detachment?

It has two really useful stratagems. You can advance and charge, you also get one to double your wounds when determining which profile you are on. The warlord trait gives you additional movement and the relic is kind of neat for having your lord disco deal with hordes.

Love this chaps! Can’t wait for the new studio.

Hi B Bone! Not sure if anyone mentioned it yet, but around the 51 minute mark you used Kurov’s Aquila on Beard’s CP re-roll, but it’s only for when the enemy uses a stratagem. Cheers!

Ok some name suggestions for the Baneblade tank commander:

Saladin (historical general from the crusades)

Colonel Nisri Dakar (from the must read Tallarn novel Desert Raiders)

Prince Turk Iban Salid (also from the must read Tallarn novel Desert Raiders)

Im pretty sure the Sultant would arrive on a song like progenies of the great apocalypse of dimmu borgir !

Hi guys love the battle report as always. Is there a chance of seeing an all Cadian list using Pask and tank commands etc as then you can use battle cannons and re roll the shots with there inherent re roll 1’s for standing still and you have fun things like the relic of Cadia for a turn etc

That intro with the guardsmen looking up at the chaos monstrosity is pure money.

The Jackals do that Gilliman can not! it is time for the new supprem commander of the Imperium of Man to rise – Jalid!

Congratulations on the good news, gentleman! I am already hyped for the new campaigns to come, really like them!

Loved the game guys. I’m a bit confused by beard’s turn 3: the tallarn infantry had locked the decimator in combat, but you were targeting units further away with smite, and targeting characters that seemed further away (the company commander and the psykers).

Look Abbadon is pronouced Abbadon not Abbadon or Abbadon I hope that clears things up!

34:35: Second Tank Commander had a 1 on a hit roll and reroll. Shouldnt that be a Mortal Wound using Emergency Plasma Vents?

It looked like cultists were closer to the Baneblade than Abaddon. Or maybe it’s the camera angle

The Sultan’s crew should be called the harem – there to serve at the tanks will and whim.

this was a great game, all the love guys, epic new on the confirmation!

Great game guys. The Sultan is an absolute beast. Congrats on the move and looking forward to seeing the new studio and a lot of more epic battle reports.

If you want to continue the Sultan theme, the commander could be the Amir (commander in chief or prince) and the crew could be the Viziers (advisors) or Baltadji (palace guard)

Congrats on the confirmation boys! Just for my curiosity how much did the lodge end up raising in the end? @bbone

The mental image of all those cultists being slaughtered by the punisher followed by The Sultan levelling all its guns at Abaddon and just nuking him off the board is too much😂 Epic game guys!

why did beard shoot his oblits with cacophony without rolling for its weapon profile again??

Min 54: Beard has to make a 4″ charge. Rolls a 2 and a 1. CP Re-roll 1 into 1. Beard…I…I don’t know what to say. 🙂

Congratulations of the awesome news. Enjoyed that battle report…particularly the tipsy celebrations toward the end! I reckon a drunk battle report could be interesting…or an utter disaster but could be 40k comedy gold haha.

Hm…im not sure chaps. But dont the sponson/hull weapons on the LR get -1 from moving? Grinding advance only works on the turret. So a tankcommander on the move should hit on 3+ with the turret and 4+ with the sponsons.

Super grats everyone, glad to have found you recently and been able to join in subbing but also being a part of the move in a strange electronic way. May the blessings of William Gibson be upon you all!

I know you guys were very excited and wanted to get the game over, but I think you forgot that the Baneblade comes with a demolisher cannon. Also I think a few times a character might have been shot while the cultist were closer. But I could be mistaken.

should make a diorama of two sides on a battlefield with the 2 army leaders round a table of pizza sandwiches! 😀

Fun game and awesome news.

I’m not sure tank commanders would protect your infantry officers from being targeted since I think tank commanders have the character rule, but maybe they don’t. Wasn’t a big factor but something to keep in mind

Matt Wallis

Fyi: The oblits need to reroll their weapon stats when they use Endless Cacophony.

Pizza sandwiches and new studio confirmation mid battle report make for an epic bat rep. Good luck with the move and can’t wait to see the new studio.
