So… Sanga and Fanga? LOL

Nice report. I usually don’t like watching so many BA reports in a row, but you make it look easy and fun!
Cheers!

That die for Cawl was not cocked, obviously a 4. You’re a little inconsistent with what’s cocked and not. Sanga deserved that kill.

I might be wrong but in 5 turn for Sanga – how could he use his flamers when he disengaged from the Imperial Knight? I mean in previous turn we had the same situation and then Lawrence told that Sanga couldn’t use them because of those marines retreating… If i misunderstood something then sorry i’m still learning. And as always awesome BattleRep

Question regarding pile ins: when Sister Abigail stomped assault marines, could the casualties be chosen in such a way so as to enable pile in into the robot?
Also, I think you don’t have to do pile-in moves anymore (wouldn’t change anything, but worth noting I guess).

This was a great battle report. I enjoyed the newer players vs each other. Can’t wait to see more Mech! Hopefully he will look into some Dragoons or Ironstriders, would love to see how they do.

Great battle report, as always! That warlords duel was just awesome! Very cinematic!
Just off-topic: I have noticed these new 2000 pts games now became so much longer, comparing to standard 1850 pts reports you made in 7th edition. Not bad thing I guess, but this particular report took 2.40.00?! Huge difference to 1.40.00 in average for previous 7th reports, eh? ))

Awesome battle report as always! One of my favorites so far.

Why didn’t Stig use his command reroll on the wound roll against the Librarian during overwatch? Could have killed him and saved Cawl. Too exciting though. Very cinematic as you guys said. Couldn’t have ended any better for us watching!

Thanks for all you guys do and keep up the great work!

Awesome game! Really like that you are going with a larger core of non-elite infantry. Having more bodies on the board makes a HUGE difference.

Doesn’t crawls re-roll ability also effect overwatch? Stig could have shredded more of those assault marines in the first turn!

Stig! Welcome to the channel, a man after my own heart with an army like that. Beautifully painted to boot. Great battle report and great banter, you fit right in man! Also I love the poses on the Icarus Array Dunecrawlers, they are perfect, I wish mine were posed like that. I am a seasoned Skitarii player, I also have a full AdMech but mostly play Skitarii. Since you’re new to the scene maybe some advice about the glorious private guard that is Skitarii might be useful? Like I said though, I like your style and this was a great… Read more »

How can I watch my adeptus mechanicus army seriously again? I hear Bone’s voice in my head “frrrom outerrrspaaasee”. At least it’s from Ryza and not Mars…

That was the best 8th Edition report you guys have released, what an absolutely insane game! Completely hooked, congratulations Sanga, great list.

I’m not sure, but I think Litanies of the Electromancer isn’t an ongoing power, but you check for it when you rolled for it, and that’s when it goes off.
At least that’s how I read it, or else I would think it would have mentioned “when a unit move within 1″,” or something.

Tactical Advice: First turn, when Sanga shoots the second Assault Marine unit I would have shot them in the opposite order: Pistols then Melta. That way the pistols could potentially have killed the 1 wound guy, and the melta take out the other guy.

Watching this reminded me about what you said for melee weapons on the imperial knights not being that great in the tactica. It was never used the entire game due to screening units which you expect to happen most of the time. The crusader version is definitely more worthwhile if you can find the extra points for them.

A few things 1. What an absolutely stunning game! I lost count with how many save or die situations came up and Abi’s last stand was GLORIOUS. 2. Welcome to the channel Stig! Look forward to seeing more of you and how your army comes together as we go along. 3. Just a bit of advice for Stig here, I think the Robots are much better served coming in groups of 4 if you are going with the dakka variants. Cawl + 4 dakka bots is a great core for any type of mars army. Also when running dunecrawlers, i… Read more »

Right in the beginning, there was 1 robot with 1 wound remaining after the first 2 meltas and pistols had shot. Why did the Sanga shoot all his meltas before the pistols after this for the other units? In the end it didn’t matter, but if a melta actually went through, it would have been a waste of D6 damage potential for the 1 wound robot would have to take it. Why not shoot the pistols first to try and eat that wound off (or any other guns in the army to try and do the same). Plus, that way… Read more »

Great game overall fellas, Stig, I wanted to post some advice for you seeing as your new to the glory that is Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii. I play nearly pure Skitarii armies, sort of like yours here, the only choices not being Skitarii are the Robots and Datasmith and Knight. First off I love your style, using Vanguard, Rangers, Plasma, Arc Rifles, Icarus Dunecrawlers, that’s all awesome stuff. Your army looks amazing, paint job is awesome, particularly liked the posing on the Icarus Dunecrawlers. Awesome banter with the Sanger too, you for right in! Now Cawl, he is extremely good, however… Read more »

This is some real shit. This is shit that happens. This is the best battle report you have released. What were those rolls? What is Warhammer 40k? No body knows anymore all I know is I need more. Welcome Stig, and congrats to both you and Sanga on a masterpiece.

so many absolutely epic dice rolls in that game. incredibly fun, very thematic with the StW duel – grotty must be very pleased. well done boys

You know, the more that I think about it, the more I think that mortal wound canticle triggers only when the canticle is rolled (if it doesn’t otherwise say it happens in the Fight phase). So the idea would be that it would potentially help units already in combat or friendly units that are about to charge, so if an enemy model starts the battle round outside the 1″ range, it’s safe. That was such an intense game, congrats to both players. Nice to meet the Stig (noticeably without a helmet and driving a fast car) and of course see… Read more »
