Great game and nice to see new Blood Angel list and old models on table 🙂
I know you guys are having a fun game but still those saves taken all-together on the storm shield in turn 1 hurt my eyes! Could have killed 2-3 more depending on the order…

Top work as usual. Have you considered calling the misericordia “The Emperor’s Shank” because that’s essentially what it is?

Is Killshot still an allowed strat? I’ve been told it was FAQ’d out of existence.

Stig, what are your thoughts on the dreadnought options for the Custodes?

I had to run a loyal 32 with my custodes, they cost as much as a single squad of customers and can sit on lots of objectives.

This makes me want an episode where bone and stig just say words.
Also i love seeing all the gold on the table, seems if something is painted gold it is straight up awesome. Can’t wait to see the new custodes dreadnoughts, have the sword and board one myself and i love it.

Didnt scroll down to see if anyone pointed this out yet, sry if this is a repeat… turn one Bone used Lamartes lit of hate for re-roll melee, should tried one of the ones he chose from the list. Death company re-rerolls melee all day with in 6″ of Lamartes ( easy to miss its built in to the re-roll charge)

Playing against that FNP banner Is disheartening. I play a lot against Blood Angels so I understand your pain Stig and to be honest I got frustrated on your behalf. I do believe though that the FNP Is per model, and not the unit, but seems like you did it right all game In regards to the 6 Inches.

Cheers for the battle, much closer than anticipated.

Hey Stig, GW has confirmed Sisters of Silence will be able to be tabled with Custodes in the upcoming psychic awakening release – this was mentioned in the model release of the two characters in the watchers of the throne book. Assuming you can run them as normal custodes troops that may be a good option instead of the loyal 32.

Hay stig tanks are 220 pts each for yours 240 for the heavy variants battle scribe points are still wrong since the last FAQ they went up again depending on time of filming.

Just a quick question guys, Ben said that the Gladius tank couldn’t fire over watch because it couldn’t see him, how did you get to throw a crack grenade at it, surely if the tank couldn’t see the captain then the captain couldn’t see the tank

You’ve lead me to an interesting rule conundrum Mr Bone, You stated when resolving your predators melee attacks against Stig’s lone jetbike that they do not have the Red Thirst, however this isn’t the case, BUT when rereading the rule from the Blood of Baal it states ‘When resolving an attack made with a melee weapon’, does the predator not count as using a melee weapon since there isn’t one on it’s stat sheet? If that is the case then does this then also mean that Intercessors (barring the sergeant) and other similar units also do not benefit from the… Read more »

@Stig try running only shield and sword for your guards. I haven’t used the spears in like 12 months. If your running a larger blob of guardians go 3 sword and 7 spears. instead of bikes go for 6 allarus and 6 aquillon or 8-10 wardens they’r more wounds/point. Aquill go with bolters or flamers. I don’t know what you have just a tip. Telemon is not worth buying right now, galadus dread is the best one and even that one is meh. Run 2 vexilus with axe, one with Magnifica and one with Imperius and homer in whatever you… Read more »

@Stig: what do you think of what GW said about putting Custodes and Sisters of Silence together in one of the next PA? They seems to offer a cheap infantry that also could be very good against the enemy psykers, could be a nice boost to the golden boys.

Great report, obnoxious rolling from bone. I was screaming at Stig with the bikes, why didn’t you use the strat for more attacks lol. Also you can interrupt for 1cp when within 3 of an objective.

Enjoyable game! I liked the back and forth. Could have gone either way.. was surprised that CG and the Guard didn’t counter charge some of the characters (Sanguinor and Lemartes) on turn 2. It could have forced the Sanguinary Guard to then have to make a hard choice on blood angels turn 3 between going after CG and guard vs the jetbikes.

No, Custodes should go back to changing the Emperor’s bed pan and pretending the Misericordia is a manly weapon. I mean, who are these guys? They have been sitting around for ages doing nothing and now they are out and about trying to do the Emperor’s work because Gman say’s so? Go back to working at the glorified nursery and leave the elite stuff to GK and DW and the conquering to the Loyalist chapters and brave men and women of the Imperial Guard. Edit: I’m kidding…Another Batrep which is going to be a cracker! Love watching you guys…
