I was at the edge of my seat the whole game. Awesome!

Really like the format. Glad you aren’t playing music in the oral introduction of the army lists, but would like to see longer sequences of the models/units during presentation and there you can really pump up the volume!

This was a fun game proving that draws can also be just as much fun as wins and losses.

Really like the new bases Stig! Though I did really like the old snow ones. Just wondering why did you change them?

That was a great batrep. Really funny and enjoyable, just what I’ve come to expect from this channel. Thanks guys.

I have only watched until minute 40, but just one little thing to mention. The Chickens charged the Knight so they attack first, now the knight also have this rule so they would both hit first, but it is Stigs round so he gets to decide which one will fight first. In this case it would be the chickens .

@bone @beard, you are gonna need to name the reroll a 1 to a 1.

Just starting to watch, and in the list preamble, the “john” part has been cracking me up. Please don’t keep shortening the list section, seeing the TT team’s personality come through in this part is all part of the fun of this channel!

Wait shouldn’t beard be on 14? The turn 4 he got all 3 objectives, one being worth 2.

I love watching you guys. 1. for the banter its hilarious. 2. Because you play fairly. I was recently watching miniwargaming (Steve, Gaming with the Mountain) and I saw on camera him count multiple wounds/hits that were misses or non wounds. This accounted for almost 36+ wounds he should not have gotten. Maybe he was in a rush and wasnt paying attention.

Video killed Deredeo star! Love that song!!

Fantastic game! Really enjoyable from start to finish. Nice to see the AdMech putting in a strong showing at the new studio, but I’m also loving Beard’s new upgraded Iron Warriors force. Keep it coming ๐Ÿ™‚

Absolutely amazing, and glad to see you guys getting a handle on your new presentation style! Shocking outcome for that game, although I would have loved to see the cards left in the players’ hands at the end of the game if there were any.

Guys one of the best matches I’ve seen in a while. I love these kind of batreps where it’s so evenly matched. The back and forth fireing across the battlefield was awesome. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I also love Bone as the game runner, it switches it up a bit and the 3 of you are hilarious together. ๐Ÿ˜€

Guys, really nice batrep! But i need to say, that Beard did a bit cheating ๐Ÿ™‚ That knight even with always strike first relic could’t strike before chickens.
In the rule of that relic you can see, that if another unit has same ability or charged, the fight phase goes in normal order, so Stig needed to pick 1st unit to fight first.

“If thereare enemy units that have charged, or that have a similar ability, then alternate choosing units to fight with, starting with the player whose turn is taking place. ”

Good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

Rewatched the exchange at about 22:36 about 10 times and I still can’t stop laughing.

Oddest video outrol, so far. I’m concerned ‘the box’ is slowly turning its occupants insane. Maybe it should be renamed the chamber of madness? Or maybe that sounds more Harry Potter than Grimdark.

I kind of miss the old intros, discussing the lists in more depth, but I’m a stickler, the new intros are still great!

I am very pleased about how at the start you said it would be a draw because you both had 2000pts on the nose… And it was! Such a great game!

Can I just say I think beards target priority is really bad a knight hitting on 5+s and two AGCs targeting a T8 termite drill and then heavy bolters at it too it’s much better to just shoot butchers at it and the wardog. So many wasted shots. That could have been into the much more squishy electro priests. He then could have stomped the termite… Just my two cents. Beard only using the knights at half ability.

Very good game. I though it would be a landslide but was corrected in due course. Really close and even. Excellent bat rep.

I don’t know if I missed any while painting but did the non infernally powered arm on Beard’s knights out perform the powered up one every time? The warp is fickle!!!

Beard: (Re-rolls a one into a one)
Stig: Shall I make two saves now? ( makes them)
Beard: (arms up in protest to the cosmos)
Universe: All is as intended
Bone: (down o2 levels from laughing so hard)

Bone: I just wanted to say that you do a fantastic job as game runner and naturally BoneCam operator. Curated games are a really great format to watch and StigBeard batrep is a nice change of pace.

Good to see the lists in the description. Little thing but so convenient. My biggest complaint so far is that Bone didn’t leave Beard hanging long enough in the intro. Thanks for taking on feedback about the intros – now all we need is the classic 25 minute Spider & Bone ramble where we veer wildly between Spider explaining how he could have made the his list more hardcore but didn’t because he wanted it to be fluffy (obviously he curb-stomps Bone into a blubbering mess by the end of turn 2 anyway), Bone explaining the cool new name he’s… Read more ยป

Don’t mean to be a pedant, but the ‘Quicksilver Throne of Slaneesh’ doesn’t allow beard to fight first if he’s charged ๐Ÿ™ if the unit’s charged, the players alternate fighting with the player whose turn it is fighting first.

Really a nice game! Love the shape the format is taking, and love how you wrote the lists for easy consultation!
Beard’s Chaos soup seems really nice, and the terminator lord looks awesome.
Keep up the good work!
