What an awesome game and what a fantastic list Chef brought: no Ahriman, no Preds. This bodes well …

Grats to Beard on a win. Hopefully there will be more sisters next time 😉

Fantastic game! I can tell when Beard is out to win a game when he throws out that many assassins against a 1k son army. Yowza! Chef, your acumen and commentary were peerless. You made this a much closer game than it should have been. Beard, congrats on a win!

That was an absolutely great game: one of the best in a while, which I see really saying something! Great to see more of the Chef now he’s full time, and, Chef, your camera work is already good, and much better with every game. Cheers guys!

Chef, you’re a natural. Honestly, the flow and atmosphere of this bat rep is really crisp and positive. The new, fluffier dynamic is fantastic, especially breaking the mold of Lawrence > Bone > Beard, which seems to play out more often than not (but I always root for the underdog 😉 Keep up the good work O Best of All Warhammer Channels m(_ _)m

The running commentary from both of you is top notch, especially from Chef. Camera work is coming along very well too, if a little fast with the swopping panning.

That was a cracking game, wasn’t sure what way it would go until it had ended.
Your filming skills have definitely improved Chef, can’t wait to see how you are doing in a couple of weeks!

Excellent battle report lads! Great camera work Chef, the only constructive criticism I have is maybe pan a bit slower when transition from the board to viewing Beard, I don’t know if it is the new cameras but people are usually blurred out and it makes the video look like it’s NSFW hahahaha! On a side note, can we get t-shirts with your lads quotes on them? “Consistency is key!” “It’s very interesting!” “Now I don’t want to alarm you!” 🙂

Doesn’t 6s perils means the power doesn’t go off? Or is just that if the psyker dies?

Chef, I love the way you film the battlefield, zooms, multiple angles, getting the camera around the table to keep interesting, all good stuff! Maybe try to move the camera a little more slowly and smoothly? Take your time! Hope this helps.

Great game both! Chef, I loved the camera shot you did with the vindicare assassin looking down the street from the cathedral – the slow zoom out was awesome and really added to the feel of the game!

Thanks for the great game. Last game was 3 PBC and this game 3 Exorcists, hard work for the 1ksons. Looking forward to more Chef and Beard specials. Chef new dice worked a treat but double sixes will be good next game with SM.

Doing well with the camera work so far Chef, good to see!

Minor point, per the FAQ, with Gaze of Fate you have to reroll BOTH dice if you’re using it on a psychic test or charge roll or any situaton where you need to roll multiple dice at a time.

Beard you cheaty cheaty cheat pants! ^_^ Celestine can do a lot of things but deep strike is not one of them!

Unless ive missed something she doesn’t have Skystrike like the Seraphim do. Which is dumb but there you go… 🙁

Without yet watching the vid: 3 Vindicare Assassins and a Culexus?! Well Chef’s gonna get served! So far Chef, my only real criticism of your filming is that I think you move the camera about too fast. I think this is what tends to cause the image to blur due to autofocus? This was especially noticeable about the 1 hour 48-51 minute mark and the blur out when you were talking to Lady Beard. As to the game itself, it turned out sorta how I expected although it was a bit closer, probably on account of Beard’s inability to roll… Read more »

Excellent batrep, my dudes. Tons of fun to watch. Chef, you’re getting good at the camerawork there, looks like you’re a natural.

Chef if you could zoom out a little bit when filming. I was getting a bit of motion sickness with, the quick movements of you going form dice to beard to model to dice.

Spider Vision, Bone Cam, Beardoscope, Stig Tape, Chefveillance, Sangabox? just some ideas – I couldn’t think of anything else to go with Chef!

That was the best game I’ve seen in ages. Gratz to Mr Beard ^_^
Chef, love it that you’re moving the camera around, makes it waaay more entertaining than for example staying focused on the “dice area” not to mention that you narrate and share your thoughts behind your moves. The camera got a bit blurry at times (weirdly I only noticed it after you mentioned that you hadn’t had much practice filming) which was the only downside I noticed =)

Beard lil tip for next time against a v psychic army, take the brazier of eternal flame! Then you can actually deny effectively with your units!

Chef, Gaze of Fate says to reroll a “Single dice roll” during the turn not “a single dice” (which is what Command Reroll says). Therefore it seems you have to pick up ALL the dice if there are more than one (like in your first turn Psychic test). From the FAQ on rerolls…. “Some rules allow you to re-roll a dice roll, which means you get to roll some or all of the dice again. If a rule allows you to re-roll a result that was made by adding several dice together (e.g. 2D6, 3D6, etc.) then, unless otherwise stated,… Read more »

(Slow Clap as Hell freezes over in the background).

Someone from TTT FINALLY used Gaze of Fate and Chaos Familiar…..on the same model no less.

And a Terminator Sorcerer? At long last.

Bravo.

What’s next, a Seer’s Bane Exalted? Rubric Phalanx? We can hope.

Great vid. Thanks so much. Great to see some new tricks and, as always a great show.

Have to admit, I love me a Beard and Bone batrep, I think I’ve just found a challenger, the Beard and Chef batrep. Loved it, and great to have the Chef fully in the team, love it. You guys are smashing it, big style!!

Young Beard. The Pastry Chef. No BBone in sight. Not even hiding under the table? What am I to think? It took some adjustment – about 3 seconds or so – but I managed to have a great time watching this wonderful report!

Great stuff, good laughs, some decent tactics, and some evil dice.

Only a minor quibble: Chef maybe move the camera a bit slower, at times it was a little blurry – but loved all your explanations as to why you were doing different game decisions.

You two absolutely nailed this battle report. Beard and Chef, hats off! You’ve set a new standard and it’s very good!

The care and patience over the commentary of each phase was noticeably brilliant and thoroughly enjoyable to follow. Units had a purpose and Chef dude, you wouldn’t know you’ve ‘just’ started filming. I think coming in fresh has benefitted you and you’ve definitely landed on your own style which is adding to the channel!

Knocked it out of the park, honestly dead impressed.

Keep bossing it!

I found this a really great batrep! More often then not I feel that the games turn out to be onesided, but this time it was very swingey, and I found it really entertaining. Beard’s rotten dice rolls were compensated by Chef’s suicide Smite (think this will be a new fad? we’ll see in future games).
I loved how you two explained your reasoning and some of the tagging moves. Props to you both, keep up your good work!
