Really wild game, after turn IW turn 1 I thought Beard was going to trounce it. Bones comes backs and really hit’s hard, then then Beard fluffed on the knight I thought it was game over! It was SO swingy, would of loved to been i nthe room for the armosphere! I realllllllly the look of both armies, Beards Iron Warrior Daemon prince looks really nice. One thing you guys keep forgetting is if you do Pile in / Consiladate into something in that fight phas they can be chosen to fight because they’re now within 1″ of a enemy… Read more »

Great game gents! Totally need to have a shirt made with Beard on it shouting strengthness as he raises a fist to the heavens and is standing on a corpse.

Problem with the New Codex, is that it’s nothing compared to what Traitor Legions was :/

Did you have 2 meltas in the scion squads who were not ten man? Because I recall reading that you can only have two weapons in ten man squads

As usual, great batrep! And I’m note sure there is word to describe how great looking that knight is! Turn 1 you forgot that if you pile in to a new unit that unit gets to activate and strike back. Would only have mattered against the demon prince but could potentially have freed up som shooting for Bone turn 1. But probably not with that awesome T6 & 2+ save! 🙂 A bit of a game-y close combat tip: If the knight would have stopped the charge just under 1″ away from the rhino he could actually have tied up… Read more »

Always great to see the Iron Warriors out to play. And omg that Knight! @52mins in when those Tempestus guys (also awesome colour scheme; they actually look like spec ops) overcharged and shot those Oblits, because the overcharge goes to 2 damage each and they put two wounding hits through past saves (so 4 dmg total), it would have killed an Obliterator (which have three wounds each) but the remaining damage would have been lost because unlike sigmar; damage doesn’t wrap around unless they’re mortal wounds. Unless of course those Tempestus have their own Plasma guns with their own rules,… Read more »

Those dice were weird and that Knight was awesome.

That Daemon Prince actually died turn 1, you forgot to take into account the wound from the Hot Shot Las gun so he lost all 9 wounds.

The Sicaran Accelerator Autocannon gets -3AP for every 6 that you roll to wound! So beard during 1st turn shooting with his first Sicaran rolled two sixes, so two wounds would have been -3AP and other two -1AP!!!
