Great report guys, Bonecam getting better and better!

Also, Bone – pink ‘nids are in fact the best ‘nids. I didn’t believe it either, until I saw these…

oh god Stig, your luck. I am so, so sorry. This was the saddest game to watch…

To be fair to poor Stig, it was all over but the crying once mighty KEVIN scoffed at Stig’s shooting and arose to become the hero we all knew he would be. BTW, I am a new subscriber (a month in) and new to the game. And I am thoroughly enjoying all of your videos. You certainly have a hell of a cast of characters on this channel and they make the game even more fun. Well done gentlemen (and I use that term loosely)

This was a great game, though I felt bad for Stig. He got ruined 🙁

Start of turn 1 – Bone drew 2 “Secure Objective 3”, but Tyranids have a Codex, which means objective 13 should be replaced by the codex-specific one at the back of the book.

Stig with your Neutron Lasers the book reads
Treat Wound Rolls of 1 or 2 as 3. You were treating Damage rolls as 3’s (so in turn 1 your neutron laser should have done 5 damage not 7)

Thought you should know!

Trans-uranic, as in elements past uranium in the periodic table (atomic number greater than 92). Galvanic, if you’re interested, means electric currents produced by chemical action, i.e. a battery

A bit more one sided then most but still had a blast watching! Stig, it’s been an absolute pleasure watching you improve over such a short time. Unfortunately the luck just wasn’t with you today. Those 2 explosions, plus the tyrannofexs hitting on 5s like it’s easy. :TLDR: Gushing about nid tactics I’m a nid main so I can’t help but throw some list building advice out there. I know you guys weren’t trying to make super competitive lists for this one but things to keep in mind for future lists. The biggest one is the hive tyrant build. The… Read more »

Is it just me or do the tyranids seem a bit undercosted atm? You just seem to get way too much oomph, two toughness 8 double shooting monsters, two flyrants, big group of hive guard, and two good blobs of genestealers plus assorted odds and ends? The army’s felt like bone was playing with 500 extra points or something. Maybe admech are just terrible from a competitive rate stand point? I think one of the big problems is that so many of the nid characters are psykers, seems too strong. They’re all ready super fast and killy, but they get… Read more »

The other Hive Tyrant could have been activated since it charged and thus piled in and consolidated into the robots in turn 2.

Oh my……Stig, was watching with mates and we just kept cringing at those rolls. To get one or two 6s on a vehicle exploding in a game is rare enough……. but those TWO(!!) re-rolls had us in stitches, I’m sorry buddy! 😛 Thoroughly enjoyed, as always.

Bone, the Great Devourer’s calling you. It’s time for Hive Fleet Toga, painted in a bone-white color scheme and the primary mutation is a mustache on every model.

Great showing gents: always enjoy a bit of Bonecam before bedtime!!

Wow, that’s a tough match-up for the Ad Mech, Stig. You almost really needed to get the first turn to whittle the bugs down to a more manageable amount. As has been pointed out earlier … it must be Knight-time soon?

Bone, time to get Lawrence to invest in a TTT catcher’s mit to hold all those ‘stealers attack dice … I’ll get my coat …

Can you get “assassinate” by causing a vehicle to explode and the character in question dying from the explosion? Curious!

Tyranids are frightening!
