“Yes..YES!!”

*Bone flaps his arms*

Gr8 batrep and It will be awsome to see this game again when the orc dex has dropped.

Great bat rep! Love Liam back with orks taking on a codex Mermadon and Bone is the best. Nobody loses a tough game with more class.

Great batrep, sure some sloppy things by Bone in deployment and turn 1 movement and a bit of playing it too safe with psychic powers for my taste in the later turns. But you loose you learn, or maybe it’s you peril you learn! =) A really good game by both players! Great charges and utilization of the pile in and consolidation from Liam, nice to see! Great sportsmanship and a lot of fun to watch! Keep it up! And as always orks are a lot of fun to watch! On the turn that he cast “the jump” on the… Read more »

Think we need to get Liam on the channel as a regular since it’s always a beautiful sight when the Orks roll in to town for a party! I also love how he builds his Ork lists, he clearly knows how to make them work in 8th edition – maybe get him in as a guest if we see a Tactica video on an Ork Codex in the new year? 😉

One of the best games I’ve ever seen! I was so involved and was cheering dice rolls ? Fantastically entertaining guys, continuing to effortlessly justify my subscription ?

I can’t help but chuckle at “swing my nob first”. Imagine someone watching with no knowledge of orcs ;D

Liam! what up? always happy to see you on here. You’re my Ork brother from another mother. Bone, i think you’ve inherited some of the spider’s rolls man, you were dropping like a champ. Good fun as always watching guys go to town. Did have a quick question. was trying to buy some dice and a shirt but it keeps telling me my cart is empty and wont let me proceed. am i doing something wrong or what’s up?

What a fantastic game! I think it felt a little one sided, but the attitude of everyone really helped build the atmosphere. Bone and Liam were both great sports (as always), so I think you should make Liam a regular! I feel that Bone just did not recognize how bloody scary mass Orks are until far too late haha re: those Genestealers!

I always seem to love Liam’s lists as well, very flavoursome (with Orksome sauce)

When’s Liam (Thoros!) bringing the Fists back? I remember his assault centurions getting smashed by the corpse thief claw in seventh, but stick em in a Raven with an Ironclad and things could be so different in eighth!

Is Tyranid tactica coming next, or will Eldar be first?

I must point out however that a Warboss on bike has 7 wounds!

Really fun batrep, loved Liam, Tyranids seem very strong atm, I just don’t really see a single unit in the lists played on TT that you might call fodder or tax. Whether it’s tactical squads or guardian squads, most armies have a unit that you take to fill a need or fill a detachment, but you don’t expect them to do that much beyond screening or objective holding – but with the Nid lists, it’s like literally every model is primed to weak havoc either with shooting or melee. Are genestealers as troops choices too good? As a gateway to… Read more »

Awesome stuff again TT, its close, competitive, fun and two great players with amazing sportsmanship. loved every second of it just what i needed while painting my own Tyrannofex!

I’ve never liked the tactical objective cards tbh. I think you can win or loose a game based on the luck of the draw as opposed to tactics. Have you guys thought of using the open war deck? We use it all the time with match play rules and it makes for much fairer more tactical games.
Not that i don’t enjoy watching btw! I wouldn’t be paying you if i didn’t ^_^

Great work Bone! So proud of how far your fellas have come and I can only see you folks doing bigger and better in the future. I am glad Lawrence has solid mates to share the load with. Your getting better already Bone! Thanks for the epic games! I haven’t commented much lately as because I have been painting a 2000 point catachan army for a tournament tomorrow, got it done in just over 2 and a half weeks! These reports really made the marathon painting sessions a blast, you know a report is done well when you can be… Read more »

Positioning of characters seems so important, leaving the war boss open on the flank really hurt with all that smite.
