Note: As you declare your targets before shooting you can’t afterwards choose not to fire a weapon, so a good thing he did. 🙂

If chef hadn’t piled in towards the chinook with the intercessors and remained barely within 1″ the burns inside would have died… why plan for that and then pile in chef? 🤣

The gets hot on the morkanaut would have cost him 6 wounds (2 turn one and 4 turn two) meaning he would have been dead turn 4. Which chef did anyways with a cp and the captain. 🙂

Really loved this battle report! Beautiful Ork army too boot. I got really worried thar the Obsidian Dragons would be doomed to do a Crimson Fist style last stand but Chef pulled off a strong victory! I like to think that as the remnants of the Dragons was pulling back, a pair of Vultures from the Endonian Genom rolled in hot to blast the Orks with Punisher cannon fire!

Looking forward to more Orks and especially the Obsidian Dragons for sure.

also I am using the contents of the Shadowspear box as a vanguard Grey Shield kill team assigned straight to the Deathwatch – also running them as Crimson Fists because I think that rule does a good job of showing a squad of elite specialists dealing with numerically superior threats!comment image

Really enjoyed the battle report, it was heaps of fun! I’m fairly sure if Ian didnt’ mob up there was a oppurtinity to charge one of the characters in the first turn and wrap and trap another. Anywhow, who cares as I loved the energy / enthusiasm of Ian and using his last CP to try and blow up his chinork was legendary. Awesome game!

To be fair at tournament I dont think anyone would object to using chapter tactics etc for successors. I’ve asked TO’s around here and they say as long as you’re consistent in the color scheme and WYSIWYG your Ultramarines can be literally anything, up to Deathwatch even! I think it’s just WHW which insists on using the ‘right’ Chapters Tactics.

EDIT thanks for the army Iian!

Just an advice for the next time playing an Ancient, if one model dies you can only shoot ONE weapon fromt it, not all. Thats just what i noticed in the first turn for now but wow that was just an awesome and funny batrep^^

Awesome to see Orks on the channel again, and great to see Iain’s army!! Really chuffed for the channel that he’s agreed to sell them to you.

Can we see Lawrence take the Orks for a spin, maybe in a Tactica game? Orks have a long history on the channel of being duffed up, would be nice to see them flex their muscles a bit.

The more I’ve thought about I just think that to allow Adeptus Astartes with a save of 3+ or better base re-roll all failed armour saves would solve some of the issues for space marines (and equivalent), especially for terminator armour. Maybe a bit too OP for current points but that could always be remedied. Now, looking forward to some BR.

Haven’t seen anyone else point this out. You’re cheating big time with the Aggressors and the Ancient.
Re-read the ancient’s effect. You can fire ONE ranged weapon or you can make a SINGLE melee attack.

You fired the grenade launchers and boltstorm gauntlets when that first aggressor died. Those are two different weapons. That is not legal. You also made two attacks with the intercessors in melee. Again, not legal.

Guys, the Obsidian Dragons look wonderful on the table, but your unit selections have been so hilariously badly matched to your chapter tactics it almost seems deliberate. Like for a start… WHY WHY WHY are you taking max sized units with Crimson Fists? Are you trying not to trigger their chapter tactic? Then, for every batrep so far you have literally taken the opposite Redemptor for the one that suits the chapter tactic/stratagems. So for imperial fists batrep, using the Siegebreaker cohort with seismic devastation, its really obvious that you want to maximise the shot volume, yet you took the… Read more »

What a game! I’ve been watching the game on YouTube whilst travelling.. anyway that’s not important.
Iain’s/the studios orks were awesome! The Dragons were amazing! Loved every minute of the match! As always TTT provides the good times!

Happy to see Chef back at the table. A little table side service from Chef is always appreciated. Classic matchup and it was a well fought game. I am glad to see the studio army adding so many Greenskins for future games. Orks are such a classic baddie for every army to bash their heads against.

Great battle! Nice to see the spider back and the chef!
Digging the new intro audio. I feel the production value has been going up. Think someone has been putting in the effort behind the scenes which is the hard part.

Ugh, Orks and Imperial Fists. The Xeno race and the Space Marine Chapter I hate the most… Don’t know if I really want to… Wait, is that the Pastry Chef?! Cancel my appointments!

So my mate and I with his Crimson Fists have been looking at the phobos WL trait of add 1 to hit. It would allow bolter drill to work on a 4+ against any larger unit which makes Aggressors and Intercessors absolutely filthy. Just a thought to improve the damage output.

Such a good batrep though! You guys really do the best there is!

Is chef called chef because he’s cooking these rolls??

Extremely excited to have chef back more frequently though! The whole TT crew are such a blast to watch

Minor rules point: @ 1:53 and a bit where you don’t roll for the banner ability on two intercessors outside an inch, you can still activate it. Intercessors have bolt pistols, and although the unit is within an inch you don’t have to use melee attacks just because you died in the fight phase. So you could have shot their bolt pistols and tried to plink a wound off. Not much use here, but worth mentioning I think. For example if the unit had models closer to the single infantry model but not within melee range, you could easily have… Read more »

Sorry if this has already been covered but you can use the Bolter Drill stratagem with Crimson Fists as well per White Dwarf January 2019 pg. 111, great batrep as usual.

Super fun report. So happy to see Orks and hope to see them regularly. I was still screaming to reroll 1s the entire time though cause that Dread Waagh Detachment 100% should have been Bad Moonz haha any chance of some Ork Tactica in the future?

Great to (finally) see Orks again on the channel, I really love the flavor of the army and think GW did a great job in making a fun and quite strong codex! I’m so tempted to start an army myself, but there’s just too much other things I need to work on first haha. Do you guys have the new Ork models (in particular the trike) as well in the army? I’d really like to see the Warboss on wartrike, possibly my favorite model ever :D. One note on the game. With the Primaris attacking the chopper, they could be… Read more »

Can you fire out of a vehicle that advanced? Doesn’t the same rules apply as when you fall back from combat with a vehicle with fly?

Great batrep, fellas. 12500 points of Orks, on top of what already exists within the studio Ork army… but it needed to be 12500 points to take down CAPTAIN MIKAEL ANCALAGON, WHICH I THINK YOU THOUGHT I FORGOT ABOUT, DIDN’T YOU!?!?! NEVER FORGET, CAPTAIN/CHAPTER MASTER MIKAEL ANCALAGON FOR OBSIDIAN DRAGON NAMED WARLORD!!!

Regarding More Dakka, I actually think that is exactly how the game works in this case simply because the wording of the stratagem is “use this stratagem before an ork unit shoots in your shooting phase”, well they shoot after they’ve rolled up strength and amount of shots with the shokk attack gun, same for lootas. At least that is how I would interpret it, but maybe that is wrong?

That was an awesome game. I love classic match ups like this, pity primaris dont have much in the way of heavy guns, though i feel the vigilus primaris would of been very beneficial here.
Been literally on the edge of my chair the whole game, more like this would be brilliant, close, nail biting and very entertaining.

The moment Beard cuts down his beard, the spider sources a new bearded guy to play. I see how this work 😀

Btw, you roll for strenght BEFORE shooting the Shokk attack gun, not amount of shots. Just a heads up 😀

Fun game guys, the obsidragons are soo cool looking.

AGGRESSORS

(1) ETB only come with the firestorm gauntlets – NOT the grenade launchers as well.
(2) both have upto 12 shots in normal play – so 2d6 fire = 6 boltstorm + 6 grenades
