I get as hyped as Bone seeing the World Eaters out to play 😀 their super heavies are so unique and cool as well. What do you guys think between the Scorpion and the Kytan?

Two great armies 🙂 always love the banter between you two! BTW do you guys plan on playing with dark angels again anytime soon? last game with them was APRIL 29, 2018. Hoping to see them on the board again soon 😀

I’m glad y’all played it out. Sometimes the most fun is seeing how well you can do when you know you have no chance to win.

poor bbone! he sounded like a broken man at some point. Some brutal rolls were made!

I’m sure you were in range with the twin hellmaw blasters at a couple of places in that battle bone but either way the dice gods were defo against you. Brill bat rep as always still best in this genre out there guys.

Always love to see the World Eaters brought out. Even as lopsided as those dice rolls were, it’s always great to see Bone get excited for Kharn, and his theme tune is epic. My personal quest is to do reasonably well with a *pure* World Eaters army in ITC this year, and it has surprisingly started fairly well (considering I’m brand new to ITC as well, really). One of the reasons I ended up playing them when I got back into 8th was seeing one of your BatReps early on, and realizing they were the army for me – rip… Read more »

Very sad to see the Terry hate from Bone. It was like Mum n Dad are fighting again!

Exceptional Battle Report again guys. AS i’m stuck in quarantine in Italy, you folks at TT are making it much more bearable.

Keep up the good work.

Also where was Kevin this game?

Bone remember those helflamers on the scorpion, don’t know if you forgot them or if they were never in range.

No Christams bonus for Chef if he doesnt tow the Baddalion line?

Hey guys great report. The reason they called it a Greater Brass Scorpion is because many years ago not long after they released the defiler they released rules for converting a brass scorpion which comprised of 2 defilers.

What the hell is a ”tou-bet-telly-unz“ even supposed to be, Chef!?

hey Bone. one idea for you. Ive been doing the following list except with the lord of skulls. I have been running the list with a Chaos Demons supreme command detachment. Take those three demon princes in a chaos demon detachment then make one the warlord so you can give one the crimson crown. All Khorne Demon units within 6″ get extra attacks on 6+ to wound. nothing I have read specifies this is only in the fight phase therefore for every 6+ would roll on the brass scorpion ( or Lord of skulls) your getting more shots. also now… Read more »

Awesome game guys I love seeing models that don’t get a lot of board time like the scorpion.

Not every model needs to be competitive the Brass Scorpion is aesthetically great and its rules are insane…. People need to pay more for nice things and exorbinate prices for completely ridiculous and unnecessary things. 550 pts, sure why not…. You’d be loving it if you got first turn and your opponent brought knights…

Can we get a game or two where bone gets +1 to hit or wound handicap. I feel so badly for him sometimes.

You guys continue to make me laugh so hard every single game, Bones luck always continues to astound me. Another amazing game guys, thank you for the content you produce!

Hey guys,

Great game as always. Minor point of feedback: as someone with bloody awful eyesight, I find it very difficult to see the results on the blue dice, with the colour contrast and the way the studio lights are reflected on the white pips. Just so you are aware.

The irony of sargaroth dieing right away in every bat rep to being promoted to daemon prince and continuing the trend. It seems like tzanch is messing with khorne through him

Ben, Why are you getting Death to the False Emperor against Tyranids?

I take it that’s a mistake?

Giving the Dark Apostle Illusory supplication for the 5++ bubble Is pretty neat. If you don’t go first, you can start him on the board and give the Rhinos an Invuln, and If you do go first just chuck him in the Rhino as normal or advance him behind them. Also helps out a lot on the Zerkers when you face weapons with high armor penetration. The 5++ Is against both melee and shooting. Just a thought for future breps.

All In all a great battle, a bit skewed on the dice, but hey ho that Is 40k!

Chef, you are such a bully…. and all of that just cause Bone calls it a “baddallion”?
As always a fun butrep, I loved the metal BGM for Kharn!

Great battle report. On the brass scorpion; i’ve used it a few times lately and I don’t feel it is worth it’s points. It can be exceptionally swingy as it doesn’t have great defensive abilities. I’ve had it survive a full battle once, against dark angels but most of the time (even with a -1 to hit from the Apostle) it’s been effectively taken out turn one by something smaller (tau commander for example). I think it’s close, very very close to where it should be (i’m not advocating a dramatic change), but it should either be similarly priced to… Read more »

Might want to remember that you can re-roll failed hit rolls for world eaters units within 1″ of kharn… This includes shooting. This also includes the brass scorpion… Might make a difference, for example when shooting a 500 pots model. etc… 😉

Bone, don’t forget, that you can put daemonforge on the Brass Scoirpion IIRC.
