Yell away B Bone you beautiful bugger! Makes me belly laugh when you loose it! 🙂

A great game and allways fun to watch you bicker like an old couple. But I don’t think up-gunned applies to the gatling burst cannons. If im not mistaken they are renamed just that Gatling Burst Cannon, so in my mind they are no longer Burst Cannons. But never the less love your videos.

Never change Bone, you’re a gem breh. Also, where do I file my formal complaints? There is a definite lack of Roller Discos in this Batrep. <3

What a magnificent game! I adored it, very well played!

Curious thing, I didn’t know that Adeptus Mechanicum got a buff in Physic Awakening!! Isn’t that so??

Laugh riot of a battle report, sorry about the luck Bone I do the with two shots a piece the Broadsides with the cannons are worth it.

Also I can’t wait for these new AdMech units, it will give some much needed diversity to the army, there is no really bad units in the entire codex outside of Ruststalkers. One of the most well balanced codexes internally in my opinion.

Good game, we can defiantly see some of those new tricks coming into play and shining through. I’m sure you’ll get to show more of them off very soon in another game.

Bone, you could not use Focused Fire Stratagem for +1 to wound as it is T’au Sept specific stratagem. And that is why T’au sept is still very good even with all the specific combos you can do with custom septs…

I really hope we get to see Bone making big moves with a saucy Farsight Enclave list sometime soon!

Question (im already guessing the answer is no) Can you give the same Prototype Weapon System to different units? ie 2 Riptides taking the Amplified Ion Accelerator?

Great bat rep, gents. It’s so much fun to see these games play out so closely. Great to see you, Stig. I’m diggin’ the gunboat list, very cool. Bone, don’t ever change. My sleeping girlfriend be damned! Your real fans adamantly encourage the shenanigans. It’s a big part of what makes TTT the absolute best

Great batrep! But can I please request that you guys drop your restriction on normal battle reports that armies should all be from the same sept/hive fleet/klan etc.? You came up with the ‘no souping’ rule back in the day when the meta was knights + loyal 32, and that was fair enough, but in the marine meta every other army honestly needs all the help it can get – mostly because marines get massive benefits from being mono-chapter whilst every other army just gets drawbacks. Orks and genestealer cults are excellent examples of armies that are only really viable… Read more »

Bone, you are the best. You make me laugh out loud at least once during every batrep. People who don’t like you yelling and carrying on should maybe try another channel where they take 40k super seriously?

I really dont know why i cant be happy about the new things for my Tau :/ these buffs are so good but still i dont like the way current 8th is going.

Its going to be nice to see some slightly different build for t’au, but we are seeing the same issues arising over and over again – higher strength weapons, more AP, more reliable damage. It looks like first turn is going to remain incredibly decisive.

B-Bone, never apologize for being you and never change. If every battle report was taken super seriously, I wouldn’t be a lodge member. Keep up the great work as always lads!

Are you guys sure that you handled “Orders received” correct at 01:46:25?
I don’t get why Stig would draw another card. The additional objective is generated when Orders comes into play. And generating is just playing another card. From my understanding you can choose what to generate in Schemes of War.
Seems like Bone actually wanted to point that out but nobody listened to him.

Never apologise Bone, you did an amazing job, it was a tough match for Tau and Stig was rolling like an absolute madman. Tau should have had that, but the dice are a fickle mistress!
