Great game. I have noticed that Grotti’s favored son B-Bone has forgotten in at least three games as playing Death Guard that he can use a command point to make his own vehicles explode with no damage to Nurgle keyword units instead of having to roll for a chance to explode. Please try to remember that in future games. We are here to help you out mate!

The Forces of Chaos won this battle report, just as I knew they would! Epic!

Nice work Beardy-Bone.

New mug art idea….Bones as a giant flying cherub…holding a meltagun….charging heretics?

This report reminded me of my favorite WD batrep back in the day when the 3.5 chaos dex came out. It was Black Legion vs Iron Warriors and it was EPIC! Black legion won that round though, they wrote a story at then end how Honsou’s forces shelled the BL afterwards and won the day in the end afterall.. Didn’t need that one here today!

A fun game, I like the big swings you can get with this mission. It was nice seeing some space marines in the space marine armies, maybe you could do a grudge match using only space marine models ?

Feels Beard doesn’t use the full potential of the cultists. it was 70 shots, he could have veterans of the long war’d there and then endless cacophonied them for 70 more shots with veterans still in effect…. Tons of damage

One question: How do you determine line of sight/range in 40k? In AoS, you do it on a model basis. So, you can only shoot with those models that can see a model of the target unit and are in range of a model in the target unit. I am asking because of situations like those in DG turn 6 where terrain might have obscurred line of sight for some models of the DG.

Edit: How absoultely impolite of me to forget: Awesome battle report! Exciting until the very end! You two are just great entertainment!

Awesome content again, guys! Much love and please keep it up! DG is my faction, so I love seeing it on the tabletop when you guys play. If I could add a few comments: the entropy cannons on the crawlers really did some work, but I think you might have been better served taking plaguespitters and playing aggressively with them, especially since you had a daemon prince held back buffing them (an expensive unit to take and not have in combat doing what princes do best!). Also with arch-contaminator, I think you would have seen the IW infantry melt away… Read more »

Nice batrap as always guys, but Bone I think you forgot to reroll the one’s to wound in round 3 or 4 with the last Plagueburst crawler, because of the plague weapon.

Great game! Small mistakes such but the other rules guys here already pointed them out. Love seeing the Iron Warriors, one thing for beard, it is how I run mine thanks to a friend of mine (and its super cheeky) is 10 man havoc squads. I use heavy bolters cause ya know, amount of shots. 6 regular CSM (champion with chainsword and combi bolter) and 4 CSM with heavy bolters. It A. adds extra wounds so you dont take straight from your heavy weapons or champion. B. Keep them unmarked for the icon of vengeance for that Ld9 C. They… Read more »

Hey just realised that I’d missed the release of Grey Knights codex – normally rely on you guys to let us know they’re coming with a preview-week BR! Are we going to see them on the channel soon? Or are we waiting for Siege to deliver all the cheese?

I know you guys talk a lot about wanting a point reduction in marines but I was just curious to know how many points you think a standard bolter wielding marine should be? 🙂

Hey guys, you can heal the Leviathan! If you look closer at the wording, it only says you can’t during the same turn as the Machina Malifica special rule is used. As he shouldn’t be in combat you will pretty much always be able to repair him with the Hellwright.

in turn 4 how many command points did beard have, if he had 2 why didn’t he do tide of traitors

could have kill the amiger at 1:38:32 the mortal rerolls ones to wound (plague weapon) and you got 1 wound and 2 ones.

This was a great battle report. Just a quick question, in Beard’s turn three, how did the sorcerer and warlord shoot and charge after falling back? I loved the chaos v chaos!

The 30k Mechanicum do have a model for an Abeyant (Archmagos Draykavac), I’m not sure if it’s the same kind of thing that the Hellwright can take, but it does look pretty cool.

Hahaha ‘we don’t have to remember Death to the false emperor today!” It’s alright, you don’t remember it anyway 😉 lol – just kidding.

Wouldn’t you actually get cover saves against the armigers @59:26? They don’t have the Legion keyword.

Edit: the Sorcerer and chaos lord wouldn’t have been able to charge the bloat drone @1:28:07 because they would have retreated out of combat with it in their movement phase. I’m going to blame that oversight on you two breaking for lunch or something during filming haha.

I do like Chaos vs Chaos matches, it’s the only way to make sure Chaos wins!
