Stig, can I just say, as a brown guy myself, I really appreciate the diversity in skin tones on your Custodes. You’ve really nailed those tones and I’m jealous of you painting skills.

Great battle as always. Sig, bro… beautiful paint! *coughs* add GK or deepstriking DW stormbolter kill team. (get my info from Bone, I’ll show you the grossness of DW) lol Bone, my boy, TOTALLY agree! Railsides can be a thing! We can figure it out! Do you think at least 1 Sept/detachment should be sa’cea for the sweet marker-light bomb? That strategem is GENIUS! Maybe the toga, cadre and drones? Also, don’t laugh, but, when we send coldstars to their deaths at 200+ pts per, when it is more tactful (or just plain fun) to think about squads of piranhas?… Read more »

railside broadsides I think are absolutely awesome! They’re expensive but so durable, and with buffing they can do horrific damage at incredible range! I run three and I am never disappointed by them, I hope you find them to be useful too Bone 🙂 Also the railside is my favorite model maybe in the entire 40K range!

Great game! Bone, have you thought of doing Longstrike with Hammherheads to see how well that works?

people not rating riptides!? They’re so good post-codex! Either loadout I think is incredibly worth. Taking one is a nice, non-cheesy beef up unit for any list, especially with the branched nova reactor strat!

Stig, all the chat about Victor of the Blood Games at the start and then I think you forgot to actually use it? Helps keep those Shield-Captains alive!

Hey guys, is there any way for on-demand subscribers to turn off the adverts shown on freeview YouTube videos please? They’re really annoying!!

I think this is TT version of Bullying lol -> Throwing poor Stig and his fresh painted Custodes against Bone and his T’au in a Meta where deep strike and close combat armies get wrecked (and just to be sure of course he is playing T’au Sept ;))

Not to not pick but stigs terminators only wounded 4 wounds and you made 2 saves at that point his 4 wounds could only have killed 4 models max regardless of damage, then you would have had to roll sense of stone separate for each fire warrior. With what you rolled you would have saved 2 more, so only 2 firewarriors would have died.

Bone I’m stings turn 2 when his terminators charged and you overmatched you didnt use “thru unity devastation” does it not work in overwatch? I’m just curious cause you rolled quit a few sixes and they may have got a few more damage thru

Welcome back Stig! Great game as always, stellar armies. Tau overwatch has scared me so much I am taking a Inquisitorial Supreme Command Detachment in my tournament list just to be able to cast Terrify to stop at least SOME of that horrendous overwatch.

Great battle report as always! Long time fan of your narrative and fun approach of the game. Having a blast watching your games even though i would like to see some stronger lists from time to time on the channel. Anyways cheer up! Btw Mr.Bone, at 1:14 you overwatch the bike captain with your lone Commander on 5+, but it is actually CHEATING. Your T’au sept bonus allow you to owerwatch on 5+ onmy when firing overwatch within 6′ of another friendly T’au sept unit or when using the Greater Good ability. A detail that not all non T’au players… Read more »

So, Bone, when you said those Orks have gone off somewhere to escape the heat….somewhere colder….do you know something this long suffering Wolf Lord would like to know??

Definitely buying a 2nd Riptide asap.

In what order would you rate the Tau Septs? (rule wise)

Good to see you stig! Was a good game ? not sure if it would have worked (or even if I just made this rule up!) But can’t you charge without LoS therefore negating the overwatch? I did this in a recent game but am now wondering if I just cheated? Maybe the charge would have just been too long anyway but may be worth bearing in mind if I am correct?

Great battle and nice idea you got to swap around the camera, makes things more dynamic and it’s fun to see both of you ^_^

I feel like Stig said he spent CPs for re-rolls every turn for his captain but promptly forgot to use them. Looks like something I would do. Great game, best commentary

Great game! Reeeeeeeaaaaallly tempted to start some Tau some day.

Also, Smite and Character-targeting aren’t beta-rules anymore. The last FAQ made them official (with slight changes). Finalised matched play rules or something.

The new beta-test-stage rules are currently limitations to deepstriking and limitations to “soup-detachments” using only Imperium, Chaos, Ynnari or Tyranids as keyword.

Very true! Did i not do this? I have made this mistake twice now… Not sure whats going on in my brain….

Stig, around 1:27 I think the Terminators should have been able to tag at least one of the fire warrior squads as well as the fireblade. This would have at least preventing some of the return fire. It’s hard to tell from the angle, but if you positions the terminators optimally, I’m also not sure that the fireblade could fall back, without forcing the riptide to move out of the way, you can’t go over the riptide’s base so need a 25mm gap to fit through. This would have prevented the riptide from benefiting from Kauyon and potentially forced other… Read more »

Great game again guys! Good to see Stig back too!
With you on the broadsides Bone, 2 railsides plus one racked with missiles for good measure is no joke

You know what those Custodes needed? A Knight Valiant like what I worked on while watching this.

Great report, I had been gnawing at my arm since it had been a whole 3 days since the last one!
But I think Stig used command point reroll twice in a phase on turn 2, one to reroll a failed save, and one to reroll charge 🙂

Still didn’t get Through Unity Devastation right in the lists. You pick 1 enemy unit and wound rolls of 6 by friendly units within 6 get the +1AP.
