I agree with Marc griggs a little further down in the comments: one of the things that sets our gang here apart from other batrep channels is the banter before the game while going over lists. I know you guys feel some kind of pressure to make the reports more “professional” but these bits of banter are truly what make the channel stand out. You don’t want to lose the little touches in pursuit of a more polished product.

First of all: Not-so-selfie-Stig is great, use it from now on!

I actually like the army list preamble, please don’t do away with it in the long term once the studio is built. It’s one of the (various) things that sets you apart from the more generic battle report channels, and I always love cracking up at the jokes and banter that naturally pop up when you go through them – a big part of what helps viewers feel like they’re part of the TT group rather than just watching people roll dice!

Still a great video though chaps!

Stigsight, The Oculus Stig, or Stigoscope are the best names I could come up with! Great game lads, enjoyable right to the end!

Great battle report guys! I love how you are experimenting with new things. For me personally, I prefer longer list discussions where you explain your reasoning. But maybe this is more suited for the resurrected Tactica series! I would like to see references to the S.A.C.R.E.D. series.

Bone I feel like you really enjoy nids a lot more than the other armies when you play with them. Have you considered making this your new army ?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t misericordias work like chainswords?

It’s not 1 attack, it’s 1 additional unless you have a storm shield. So the first model that should get one is an allarus vexilla, as it gives him 5 attacks @ -2ap vs. 4 at none.

2nd little bit is I would have charged the swarmlord with the melta squad and the allarus vexilla. Even on a 12 in charge the vexilla would have had a decent chance at a kill if you got lucky and made it.

Stig right at the start you should have used “Avenge the Fallen” it would have given your jetbiker an extra 4 attacks!

My mate used it to give each of his allarus 9 attacks recently and it completely changed the game!

2 out of 3 games in the new locale contain confirmed Stig sightings? What a thing. Always enjoy me a battle report with Stig.

I hope you guys don’t mind a bit of feedback but a few of the games recently have had a bit of a damp ending. When you reach the end of turn 4 and say “you’re 6 points ahead so let’s end it there” it can be a bit anticlimactic. Some of my best 40k moments have been seeing what you can pull off before an inevitable defeat. I do understand you guys are insanely busy right now and in a very hot studio so might be keen to get games finished but hey just my thoughts. Keep up the… Read more »

First post after joining, so wanted to jump in. Agree with previous posts a time stamp would be good for your videos, but I have to say I like the new intro format for Freeview, and allows On Demand content to perhaps be more in depth. Makes those videos feel a bit more special, as opposed to just being more batreps.

Anything you guys do is golden though!

+1 for Stigoscope Also, a few notes for Bone regarding Tyranid stratagems: I thought he played that list very well (and the list itself was great!) but whenever a Genestealer or Broodlord kills a character, you should always use the Feeder Tendrils stratagem. Spend 1 CP to gain D3 CP. Also, after the Genestealers destroyed the unit of Custodes on the flying bike thingies in the first turn fight phase; if there’s no enemies within 3″ of the unit you can pay 1 CP for Overrun to move (and advance) as if it were the movement phase – potentially makes… Read more »

40 century Stig!😂

Just a reminder for Andonian Genom – to explode on 6-to-hot for Scions you must have ONLY Militarum Tempestus units in detachment (p. 132, “Militarum Tempestus” rule). Technically Stig should spend 1CP for Auxiliary Support Detachment to field that Psyker.

Hi guys loving the new intro format. Much prefer your intros remaining undisturbed by music breaks! I know you guys get complaints about long intros but i personally enjoy you going through units strengths, weaknesses and listening to your general musings. Presumably your upcoming tactic series will include more of this?

As always keep up the great work gents.

Stigo-Sight. Stigo-Sphere. Stigo-Gaze. Stigo-Stare. Stigo-Scan. And finally….

STIGASM.

Brutal game. Bone wasn’t playing around with that list.

I suggest Stig-oscope

New filming is awesome! Excited about the new studio. Cool to see a high end Imperium army, looks like they need some humble guardsmen!

@bbone just watched your Warcry video on WHTV. That is the perfect volume for the music… just do that every time! PS. Good work winning against Lawrence, I think that makes you the top AoS player at Tabletop Tactics!

Kudos on the changes to the intro, this one felt like a big step up! This was a fun watch, and certainly closer than it could have been, points aside. As a Nids player myself, I love to seee them do a good bashing, and while I don’t think the lists were total mismatches, I think matchups like this could be a good opportunity to take some different units for the Nids. I myself have taken to trying to avoid using Hive Guard and Genestealers wherever I can, and I’ve managed to put together a pretty fierce 2000 pt list… Read more »

I know they’re expensive, but I gotta say the Forgeworld Custodes units can be pretty brutal and can add a lot more flavor and flexibility to the studio Custodes lists, especially their Dreadnoughts. Hope that can be something y’all add into the lineup in the near future, give those golden boys a little more pop.

Now THAT was an absolute filth. A competitive Tyranid List vs what was a pretty mediocre Imperium soup. That was bound to be a whitewash from the beginning as Stig was at the harshest mathematical disadvantage. There was no way he could win with average rolls at least. I know that bikes are competitive but throwing them out in 1st turn was not the wisest decision… I won’t even start on Alarus Termies and Regular Squad, They are terrible for their points. And I know they can be good in games where they have something to hit with their pointy… Read more »

Stig, you betrayed the Omnissiah and the punishment was swift and harsh…
As always a very entertaining game, cheers to both of you!

At 29:40 you piled in with your genestealers. You are not allowed to do that unless at the end of your pile in move the unit ends up in coherency. You can’t leave one guy 6 inches behind and make pile in moves with the rest of the unit.

Getting a bit worried for Bone (and not because he’s won 2 games in a row, not against Beard…….)

I hope he’s getting enough hydration between takes, never seen an Aussie look so hot…………

Please someone check if Bone sold his soul for better dice roles! The last two games (vs stig and vs Sons of Medusa) have shown Bone saving nearly everything! I wager at least 75%+ save percentage. Rolling as hot as that temperature in the studio right now! Great job guys!

Sorry bea…. stig, but that first move with the bikes was a bad idea, and honestly so was taking first turn. Custodes are resilient enough to take most nid firepower and you are far better counter punching with the dawn eagles. (And i got your name correct today..) Really good to see the custodes though.

Just a few ideas for when Stig is working the camera;
Stig tele (television), Stig tube, & Stig stream.
Keep up the great content guys.
