That’s easy 🙂

The names are obviously:

Johnny 5 and S.A.I.N.T 6-13 (depending on the chaos god he worships 😉

Beard and Bone should be on tv at least once a week for ever just chatting about Calzones, names, films Beard hasn’t seen like Aliens, The new Religion Beard created, the time beard used 4 HQ’s in a single Batalion, the Havocs that seem to die very Quickly all of the time, the time Beard said ‘Nigel Dead Tooth’ and the ‘His Dead’ His Dead’ Dance.

Acheron – the river of pain. Purgatorio – The salvation at the end when you walk through the circles of hell (Dantes Inferno) The twins grew up on a chaos infested planet and while acheron succumbed to the temptation of the dark gods, Purgatorio managed to run away. For the empire his past is unknown and he is always on the brink of heresy, is his true origin ever to be discovered. He became a Knight and his biggest fear, and thus his biggest enemy is Acheron himself, who alone in his past has the means of damnation over his… Read more »

Well obviously those to Knights shall be named…

Bonius and Beardus! Your avatars on the field (next to your wide assortment of Gordon Ramseyesc Plague Marines, Cherubs and whatnot)

So when you don’t want Lawrence to hear call them “Chip” and “Dale”, but when Lawrence’s prying eyes are near you can call them “Jekyll” and “Hyde”. 😉

Phobos and Demios (Fear and Terror) for the names, or if you are going for the Alice in Wondeland Theme then TweedleDee & TweedleDum

The first set of Red Queen rolling to hit against the Warglaive shouldn’t have been re-rolled as Armiger-class Knights aren’t Titanic and it wasn’t a character!

Question for beard, why do you think the warglaives are better than the helverins for imperium ? I’m planning to start a knights army (or detachment) and I’m really curious now!

Ozymandias vs Prometheus “I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed: And on the pedestal these words appear: ‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’ Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of… Read more »

Great game guys!
As for the names how about titles? Like Robert the Rock of Endymion and his wayward brother Alexander the Scourge of the seven salty sailors and the Lady in the sky

The Volcano Lance gets to re-roll wounds against Titanic units, Bone!!! Sometimes I think you should have been a dancer, you’re so graceful

Such fun, really enjoyed that and now I want a knight army.

The brothers are clearly of Irish descent and named Steven and Patrick.

Great game gents. Names I’m think Terrence the Tyrant and Kyle the Castellan. Feel like Kyle would absolutely be the imperium supporter and Terrence is a real crust punk.

Name suggestions:
When Lawrence is nearby: Imogen and evil twin brother Hector
When Lawrence is not nearby: Ted and Fred.

The Red Queen is a nasty piece of work! Great game, very fun to watch, Knight games are fast and brutal, I love them. Maybe take a whole bunch of Wardogs/Armigers next time?

Castor and Pollux. Pollux of course being the one that turned to the darker pacts since he was a bit of a rascal in his youth. Castor always being the stoic and dutiful one, never turned from the path of the Emperor.

Bebop and rocksteady! Also, not a fan of swirls dice, very difficult to see with the studio lighting. Great fight though chums!

Bone and Beard should always be as a duo!!
3 people is great, and especially for tactia and narrative, but for pure silliness at it’s best, just give B&B the camera and shove in the studio…….

I really love the Bone vs Bear Batreps, but Bone became such a good player, it´s sometimes hard to watch Beard having no chance to win.

Beard I thought you said the red queen could not be affected by strategms, that would of included rotate ion shields in turn 2 which would of seen her downed. Personally not a fan of turquoise dice, the colour is not my thing and they are hard to read.
Despite this you two are fun to watch and do make the games far more interesting.

I like both of Mortz’s suggestions Romulus and Remus were what came to my mind first. Also though Cain and Able

Watching Bone trying to regain his composure after Beard described the slippery seat of Slaanesh is instantly in my top ten TT moments 😀

Höðr is manipulated into killing his brother Baldur in Nordic mythology.

Romulus killed Remus, his twin brother and co-founder of Rome.

So either Hodor and Balder, Romulus or Remus

“Oblivion” for the Tyrant and “Unwavering Resolve” for the Castellan. Keep up the awesome content guys!

Great report B&B, the two of you always deliver a great game.

This one got me thinking about one of the things I really don’t like about 8th Edition – terrain rules. If you can draw LoS from a Knight’s ankle through a massive building to another Knight’s ankle… you can fire everything. Silly, is what it is!

It may be just me but those new dice used by Beard are not perfect to read within the lighting in a video.

What an end!
Great battle, but…
A few loosey goosey mistakes with both rules and wounds (not changing the wound dice imeadiately makes for mistakes later on) + Having another colour per side for the wound dice is more clear when fighting whith multi wound models vs each other)
And in all honsety I like seeing the dice rolls, and I just coulnd’t see what Beards dice roled all game… Gold on Teal in bright camera light is not ideal for a video report :s
Keep ’em coming guys 😉

How about Romulus and Remus for the names?

Great game, thank you! It felt so very different to a normal 40k game. Would love to see you do it again some time. Maybe with a different loadouts, or some FW Knights, or you could also try a 2500-3000pts game?
Also, Turquoise dice are beautifull, but really hard to see, I must admitt.

lol.. what a game… great to see a mono knight game… not as easy as it seams… as for the names, Beard and Bone? Tom and Harry? Jerry and Tom? Ben and Nuts?

Chaos knights can be both a dreadblade and part of a household. so red queen should also be an infernal knight

Loving it, especially as a Knight Player myself :-)!

BONE, you can reroll failed wound rolls with the Volcano Lance against TITANIC units… good for the red queen though that you forgot 😉

EDIT: Nevermind, you remembered… 🙂

Cane and Able?

“we’ll think of a sweet name for them later because Lawrence isn’t here”. I can already feel his disappointment and I love it. Great game as always.

Thanks for fun battle report, gentlmen!
I like new turtoise dice, but they are not very good for the video – to hard to see what you roll due to light. Maybe, black numbers and logo would look better, IMHO.

A proper Bone and Beard Batrep. The second Bone V Beard in 24 hours? I can barely be contained! Pure Joy. 🤘
