Beard you do realize the list published is not the same as the list you described. The list has 3, 10 man reivers with combat knives and heavy bolters, not 1 unit of 9 and 2 units of 10

As always, I love the Bone and Beard batreps! And it’s great seeing The Spider joining in whenever he can! I was absolutely rolling during the intro, you guys are hilarious. That being said, this game seems a bit rushed.. in just the first turn there were a number of errors… -Beard killed two units of grots (one died to grot shield, the other to morale) and the plane, so he should’ve gotten D3 for no prisoners. – Bone when rolling for the plane during the shooting phase rolled the wounds, and then said he should’ve gotten dakka dakka and… Read more »

Always nice to see a balanced game between two thematic armies. More of this 🙂

Another cracker lads, fair play. Do Do deffcoptas ignore the -1 for advancing and firing? If they don’t then I think that interceptor and the watch master would have survived lol. One of those games where it didn’t matter who won because we all won. Here’s to 2020! Can’t wait.

Hope you all had a good Christmas!
That was a great game, wasn’t sure who was going to get the win until right at the end there. The ork list looked like a lot of fun to play as well.

Great game guys, as usual. Merry Christmas guys.
Quick question, are you only having guests from other channels and such at the moment or can anyone come and have a game as long as they have a fully painted army and know the rules?

That watch master, in the end, should have had the benefit of cover so it it should have been 3+ as he was on the terrain feature and he is an infantry model. It would have been only fair as you treated those rockets as AP-3 for the whole game…

An epic last stand for the Deathwatch, but in the end the green flood went mental and took it home quite decently! Well done you three, it was a lot of fun to watch <3

Merry Christmas to all of you guys! Love the work you put in to the community and the reports we have the grace of viewing. Just one small note from this report, but Bone wouldn’t have scored Priority Orders, as the card mentions the Warlord has to be the only model holding an objective and I believe the Gretchin were still there too. Keep up the good work guys!

Seeing how you spelt his name makes me think Mr Bigtoof saw Njarl Stormcallers name written somewhere and thought “Nigel! Oi loiks dat name! Amma call meself dat now! Be good to yer mother!”

Merry Christmas!! xxxx

Happy Christmas you lot! Has been an amazing year watching you grow even further and putting out in to the world some even better content! Cannot wait to see what 2020 brings, and to catch up and hang out again more!… oh… and Cast of Players… Said it before, and I’m sure I’ll say it again… best thing on TV! (Just bought an Apple TV JUST so I can play the iMac over on the tv for this exact reason!)

Keep being awesome!

Merry Christmas everyone!! I want to say big thank you to the Tabletop Tactics crew, it’s been a fantastic couple of years, and it’s been a blast watching you. To Lawrence, a big thank you for all the work you put in behind the scenes. You’ve consistently proved why this the best channel for hobbyists. It’s also very interesting how little you alarm anyone with your mathematics. To Chef, I’m glad to see you more and more since the creation of the new Lodge. Seeing your mad scientist style rants and enthusiasm for 40K, is both hilarious and insightful. Your… Read more »

Beard – 2 things 1. To speed up you rolls with aggressor then the two weapons have the same profile so just roll the number of shots – and them them all… 2. This is the important one, aggressors dubble fire under overwatch – it is just turn and not game turn, so they will double their shots, that could have made a difference some of the times – more green points splashed all over 😉

If you lads ever did a narrative campaign with Njal and (Njaella Orksson) I would be unspeakably happy.
Just saying.

Merry Christmas to you all xx
