Really enjoyed the game as ever guys! The only comment I would say is it’s probably best to define what’s cocked and what’s not in regards to dice before you kick off 🙂

Bone played it really well protecting the DP, I still think entropy cannons are a lot better on the PBC and would really let bones DG open up the armor a lot easier. I find between smites, bolt guns, etc you have enough anti chaff.

That was an epic game and it was so amazing to see the Sons of Medusa 😀
Hope Mr Jones would like to return at some point in the future ^_^

Bone, you did a masterful job there! Masterful! Your avatar is also properly life like. 😉

Joe, good to see classic Marines and Predators! As a bonus, your painting is sublime! What a gorgeous army! Top notch!

This version of the new format worked really well guy.
Great game too and Joe Jones did great on camera as well.
The B-Bone marine needs to be used as a Lord in future 😁

Oh man i enjoyed this battlereport so much, the Sons of Medusa so incredible beautiful painted and such a fluffy force. Would be cool to see such an oldschool astartes force in the studio 😉
and btw what happened to your old eldar lawrence, with the wraithknight.?

Great batrep, can’t wait to see more guests on the channel.

What fantastic batrep! The guest played well and was engaging if a bit shy with all the usual Bone and Spider shenanigans going on. His army is wonderfully painted. I know I am not alone in wanting to see more of his models especially the Alpha Legion we’ve been teased. Did you guys travel to an Ad Mech forge world to film this one? It looks like you guys were placed in a kiln for a few hours by the end of it.

Absolutely loved the game and hope we see more regular guests on the channel.

To receive and implement feedback as efficiently and effectively as you gents have is nothing short of impressive. Continue to experiment and push your format to new frontiers, I’m excited to see what’s to come.

Great to see Space Marines give a good account of themselves, great and relatively close game!

What a fantastic quote on the death of your avatar Bone. The abyss is a wretched and terrible place… that place may be the newly christened sweat box haha.

Oh my god, fuck yes. If this dude brings Alpha Legion in, he is instantly my new favorite. I NEED some AL in my life TT, I NEED it. I have an illness and the only cure is more AL.

Don’t let me die!

BONE!!!! You were an absolute beast with your rolling this game! I have never seen so many Disgustingly Resilient saves, you were a madman! Such a pleasure to watch! Bone you are Mortarion REBORN! Jones and Bone what a phenomenal game to watch! I’ve never seen a Space Marine castle perform and yikes it seems amazing!

This episode should come with a warning, Too hot for TV, that day was ridiculously hot. I think the way to get Joe to paint more is threaten him with more sweaty Bone time if he doesn’t get that Alpha army done lol. Fantastic Batrep too, a roller-coaster!

Nice one again gents. Enjoying the fully ‘hosted’ batrep with Lawrence doing the cam and commentary and interacting with the players. The 2 person batreps would be easier to make happen I guess but think the dynamic with the dedicated cam/host is great. Bring on the new studio!

The death guard just weather so much damage, it’s when they get a couple of bad rolls you see how much damage they would be taking as any other army. Love those pbc’s sitting there just weathering pretty much the whole armies firepower

That was an epic battle.

Really missed the music from the previous batrep. it added a lot to the army overview 🙁

Amazing battlereport! Love the banter! Poor bone-marine… 😂

A suggestion for mr. jones to expand his stunning army to 2000 pts army would be to add a 4th predator with the same loadout and a devestator squad with at least one heavy bolter and an armorium cherub.
It would increase the chance of having killshot for more than one turn and the 2D3 mortal wounds combo from the devestators using hellfire shell + Cherub + Signum is always usefull! For a minimum of 80 pts I always take a devestator squad with that loadout! 👌

Great game and awesome to see your guests getting in on the famous tabletop tactics banter! Fantastic way to get different armies and units on the channel played differently. New format is great as well. Keep up the awesome work!

Finally, Congrats on the warcry review. GW should definitely get you guys involved more often. I bet that call was bittersweet! Gw calling you to make a video but you are in the busiest period in the channel’s history. “Put down the screwdriver we have a video to make!”

Great game, epic marine army. A lot of effort with the painting and it shows. Loved the new intro showing where the points are and the full list. Please keep it going!

A followup on my quick comment I made after only watching the intro; WONDERFUL game! Seeing an army that functions in a different way from what Lawrence and Bone tend to build in action was excellent, and the nature of the dice roles and Maelstrom missions made everything all the more exciting. Superb looking terrain that makes me really want to try my hand at grabbing a few GW kits and some foam and having at it… I feel like this video in particular should be put on freeview just to let people know what kind of content they miss… Read more »

That striking green of the marines is just amazing. Simply the most amazingly painted SM army I have seen so far. Amazing Weathering! Go for the third flyer!

Having a guest over is really nice. I’d like to have this way more often!

10/10 would watch.

Bravo! Bone you look so disgustingly awesome with your Gordon Ramsey marine!

Great to see guys, big improvement from the first “new format” you’re such bosses for listening to the feedback. The new terrain looks sick as well! Is that something that you’ve been building on your own or have you had it commissioned?

I loved everything about that game!
The three people in the room batreps are the best!
Bone put on his tactical head and really showed what he can do!
And jammy joe was great!

Man that was an emotional roller coaster. I couldn’t tell who would win. At first I thought the SoM had it in the bag, then Death Guard, then SoM. Joe had a really awesome army. Chapter Master Techmarine with 6 TOUGHNESS! But that’s Maelstrom for ya. Great game, hope to see Joe again.

My buddy accidently turned on his cellphone in the other room, so I couldn’t read the army-list-text

Is it possible to make it a bit brighter?

Jokes aside, I love your new setup!

WHAT a game. The army presentation was much better than last time, too, I still think you can get better, but the game. Wow. The game!! What a performance from both players.

Well done 😁

That was an amazing game, some great rolls on both sides and two lovely painted armies..
Having a 3rd member there as a dedicated cameraman really helps with the flow as well though I understand that it can be a bit of extra work.

I was a bit weary of guests somehow, but this was one of the best reports you guys have done. Having spider commentate and bring familiarity and that chemistry we love was a great way to have space for someone who is more camera shy. The SOM army was beutiful and something fresh.
Cant wait to see more guys especially the tacticas

Really great game thank you; one of the best in a while (which is saying something!). Really enjoyed the tweaked intro/outro and list format too: thanks for listening to the feedback on the last game so promptly.

One of the best games in a while. I do like the games where you have a seperate cameraman.

Great game – We want more of those awesome guests with beautiful original and fluffy armies.
Note: Oooh the hate on those disgustingly resistant save

Really great game, my goodness it looked awful conditions in there, I salute your fortitude! Just one point…couple of times units made a consolidation/pile in move that wasn’t allowed, predator after the PBC was destroyed, and necrosius also would not have been able to pile in/consolidate after Typhus killed the lieutenant, clearly these had no impact on the game but that may not always be the case.

Spider please can we have Tactica Custodes when you start it back up 🙏

wow, so spoilled, a three man BR with a guest and an amazing painted SM

sugestions for the new format:
during the intro why not use the middle camera for general banta and the side cameras for the list descriptions.
an overhead photo showing the movement phase each player turn.
a permanent banner with the cp and vp tallies.

The Plague Marine also has a striking resemblance to Gordon Ramsey.
