Such a good battle! Back and forth all the way and actual hand to hand combat in 40K!!! Whoo hoo!

Stig you are such a good sport when the others are teasing you. Bone, I tip my hat to you sir for using a “old school” Marine Army.

Excellent stuff.

The forest moon of Bendor was amazing. It’s an odd one that angels and wolves didn’t pick up doctrines… GW will really have to give them some good toys come update time if they are to keep up it feels!

Great game, tight till the end with some awesome moments.

Stig do you have any Secutarii? The Hoplites charging out of a boat would be be awesome and something I want to try.

Fun game guys, it was pretty tense stuff. Mephiston always whiffs when I use him so good to see him destroy some stuff (after the almost invulnerable saves).

I always like seeing the admech, they’re an interesting army.

Great game, Death Company are beasts. Looking forward to the new Mephiston model. Nice to see Stig as well with the beautiful Ad Mech, the gun boats seem very versatile for the points

Epic game! So cinematic first turn from the Death Comp (and good to see them doing something before being cleaned off the board!) / Great new gunboats, nice to see impacting new units as well and indeed tensed until the end

Stig you may need to retire those dice mate. You should check out tabletoptactics.tv for a new set, they have some pretty dope merch. Great game dudes, we all need more bone energy, my dude gets hyped every game against stig and I love it.

Side note: Chef, digging the fresh cut, and thank you for hosting the game as always it is appreciated.

When I read “Blood Angels” I was excited because I got to see Sanga playing! But NO!! The nefarious Mr. Bone appears. Tell the truth, what have you done with him? Is he eating properly? Does he have enough sunlight? Sanga, if you read this, we support you!

Other than that, excellent game. Stig plays with his army in such a different way than mine, that I find it fascinating. One day we should pit his heretic Stygies against my Ryza (not less heretics, to be honest).

Well played.

Good Batrep, eventhough it really dragged on at the end, thank you guys.
It’s a shame Stig’s charge streak with the Drill ended, I actually found it quite hillarious how he always made those charges.

Very good Batrep, Have u considered getting 3 Crab-Tanks aswell Stig? Abit more expensive than the Las-Chickens but they dont suffer any penalties for moving and shooting either and more Tanky 😉

I could see a decent Moving Castle with 3 Crab Tanks, 3 Floaty-Tanks with 1-2 Dominus to get the reroll bubble going and the Maniplus HQ to give the extended range

Thanks for the report guys. Very well done, been a lot of great content lately.

I do have a piece of input for you though. Rolling in the landing pad kills my ears when I listen on headphones. It really ruins the sultry sounds of your wonderful voices.

After the first turn I though the match would become an onesided pummeling, but it was more open then I would have imagined. Though Stig, those rolls… you have to sacrifice one of those chicken to the Emperor or something like that. I know you like a more mobile army, but I am not sold on the priests. It might be cause were I live and play Forgeworld models are not allowed so no Termites for us, or that I’m still salty cause my Blightlords always botch the charge roll, but I think a unit that lives on a 9+… Read more »

I do enjoy the Chef, and I agree with him 90% of the time, but he’s wrong about space dwarfs. They’re great, he’s wrong.

(nb: I painted a squad and a half of classic squats during squat-tober, so I may not be an objective observer.)

Bone playing KO in AoS confirmed! Let me add it to my conspiracy board. You guys need to stop teasing AoS content and just release it, I’m so hyped.

Ad mech tanks are great addition to army Stig. Thanks for the bat rep.

I would genuinely love for them to bring squats into. It will be the 5th part of psychic awakening, psychic shortening.

Nice game gents. Can’t you only use Killshot against Vehicles and monsters though?

Hrimfar

As always – great batrep guys! Nice to see the bloody angels again! I hope we get some form of buff with the psychic awakening to set us up at least on par with white scars. Sure – DC can be brutal if they are in a possition like the turn 1 charge that Bones pulled off. Most of the times they just end up getting wrecked themselves turn 1 though…

Holy bloodclot, that one got really close there in the end, amazing game! Finally seeing the new Skorpius gunboats was quite refreshing, but also seeing the good ole Blood Angels as well. Well played, was quite fun to watch, keep it up lads <3

I love Stigs, but he needed to screen the hell out of his Tank and Laz Chicken fire base. Once a melee army gets in the backfield of Ad Mech, we tend to fold like a cheap suit. But any day Ad Mech are on the channel it is a good day. Take care all.

Thanks for the battle report.Have a question about re-rolls and the modifiers. If modifiers are applied after the re-rolls so if I have a unit which done something special on 6+ and, for example, +2 modifier, also able to re-roll fails and hitting on 4+. Can I re-roll 2 and 3 even if it will hit after the modifier to try to get some more 6+?

Someone says he can paint an 1750 points army in one night.
Someone says he can spell Belleros correctly.
All we know his name is … Stig

Stig-Mech! Skorpius! How exciting!

A testament to how fantastic the whole crew and all your videos are : every combination of player and host is my favourite. Essentially what I’m saying is whomever is playing or hosting – that’s my favourite combination!

Commenting after seeing Stig break away from combat with the Death Company. I know Bone said he wanted to save his CPs for other tricks but using Honor the Chapter to move another 6in to wrap the Manipulus would protect that expensive unit from being shot. A cheeky maneuver but gotta protect the thunder hammers so they can go after the tanks! Great batrep so far! Will enjoy watching the rest but scared for the boys in black.
