Domino’s US refers to its version of the supreme as an Extraganzza (the spelling is intentional its a pun)
 
It has pepperoni, ham, beef, sausage, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, black olives and an extra portion of the standard pizza cheese. Its basically a deluxe plus a meatzza with black olives added

Just wanted to check the CP for the Ultramarines. For the three detachments, I made that 7CP for all of them.

Just wanted to know how you got to 12CP? I’m just starting out, so wanted to try and maximise the CP my list has access to.

Great battle report! These ones that come down to the wire like this are so gripping to watch! I have a fledgling Thousand Sons army and watching these reports for inspiration is a great amount of fun. Seeing Magnus take the field is always awesome, and I do hope that he does get a “x wounds taken per phase maximum” type rule so that he is not immediately deleted on the first turn. Slight note on Astral Blast; from the wording of the power it seems to me that the secondary effect of 1 mortal wound to units within 3″… Read more »

Cracking report chaps! What a fitting result for this Primarch showdown. Perhaps you could do a 2 vs 1 battle report with Magnus and Mortarian vs Guilliman?

Top view is sick! One suggestion—time-lapse for the movement phase, to show movement quickly along with giving some info on the decision-making process.

The Spider needs to run free, this channel is made up of all the personalities and how they mix and how you all play the game.

Some of the greatest games have been Spiders cheese verse BBones and BBones greatest and dare I say it sweetest wins have always been when he has triumphed over the spiders cheese.

Oh Bone! You added your points up wrong in turn 4, you got 5 points and actually won the game ?

The only thing Magnus did wrong was get over excited in warning the Emperor of Hirus’ betrayal.
As for Magnus Vs Girlyman (right at the start of this batrep guys,) if Magnus drops Girlyman he does not get back up as you change him to a spawn. But if the Primarch of the Ultramarines goes first, he should drop The Demon Prince of the Thousand sons!
Fingers crossed for Magnus.

Great game and what a Rocky 2 conclusion who cares who won in the end. What a glorious duel- a thing of legends, a modern day Achilles vs Hector. Hey, I know you guys have narrative reports and recall long ago a Tallarn narrative with Beard that had a continuing story line with experience that led to upgraded units. How about an extended narrative whatever you guys desire?

Very cool clash of titans! Also, the topdown-veiw was much better in this video as it lingered just long enough for me at least.

Really enjoying the laid back battle style. It’s been fun to see Bone design both armies that would have a good game against each other. See what you can do with Tyranids. Always a fan of the bugs especially against another melee horde!

Hi guys, love the reports and the addition of the top view!
One constructive criticism maybe? : Could you leave the army movement phase recap in the top view camera for a bit longer please? I find myself rewinding multiple times to see where which unit moved etc.
Like an extra second or two would do the trick imo!

Lovely content as always!

Completely agree with Bone about putting wound per phase limits on the Daemon Primarch’s. I’d also consider putting them on the Greater Daemons too, if they don’t just buff them to be roughly analogous to Imperial/Chaos Knights anyway. The flip side is that I do sort of feel like it’s a stop gap solution because shooting seems too powerful though; which because they have reduced the effectiveness of cover I believe is true, but I think that would require some serious reworking of the core rules though. Or they could just roll the cities of death cover rules (I think)… Read more »

Two things, totally unrelated… firstly, it just shows how key list building is in 40k: when you get a couple of games where Bone made both lists and the games are super tight and probably the most fun I’ve seen in batreps in years. Second, the idea of knowing a true name giving power over something is very, very old. It’s probably the foundation of the story in the Bible where Jesus asks the name of the demon before casting it out of the man, and the demon replies, “my name is Legion, for we are many.” I’m such a… Read more »

So you seem to keep running very similar Ultramarines lists, and there’s no newer Primaris goodies there (i.e. Phobos). Are you planning on expanding your Ultramarine army to include these, or is this investment going into the Obsidian Dragons?

I’d love to see an Ultramarines list with some forward pressure from Vanguard units and walkers, and some mobility from Impulsors, to see what they can do with it. Ultramarines in Tactical seems to favour a mobile, reactive play style, and I think the newer releases can work with that.

Thoughts?

The fight between Magnus and Big-G was epic, thats why I love this game so much. I will always prefere ”nomal” play over ITC competitive play for this reason. You just don’t have those awesome moments as often in those imo.

Ok… who here was thinking Lawrence was gonna be cheeky and unloading everything into Magnus during the first shooting phase! ? I have to say not only the above camera is awesome, but I like the victory points and command points at the end of each turn. Didn’t notice it before, so thinking it’s a new thing trying out? Keep up the great work guys!

Awesome fluffy game! Brother on brother, primarch on primarch, warlord on warlord. A bit of softening up but mostly letting the big cheeses duke it out. Fluffy lists that had competitive bits but not the majority by any means.

Fantastic batrep guys.

Epic showdown! Fantastic game as always. I’ve been running guilliman in a fun way recently. Guilliman Tiggy with veil of time and might of heroes Cassius with canticle and exhortation of rage Vitrix honor guard Primaris apothecary Primaris ancient with standard of macraage inviolate And a battalion So basically how it works is Cassius prays for canticle (+2 to charge) and puts exploding 6s on guilliman (exhortation) Tiggy casts veil and might on guilliman and the apothecary honor guard and ancient are in a repulsor tracking up behind him. When he hits combat and if everything is in place Guilliman… Read more »

Magnus did do wrong, like Icarus he flew too close to the sun and got his wings burned.
But far more interestingly than that, could Lawrence take him in a 1v1?

Fantastic batrep! In the past, if I saw a batrep listed between two armies I don’t have (not easy nowadays as I have 12), I would just skip it by. You guys are so entertaining, though, I can’t help but watch anyway. 😀

Thanks for the never-ending entertainment!

Bone, did you forget your gaze of fate re-roll in turn 4? You cast it but don’t recall it being used (could have saved the DP?). Great game though, very funny and entertaining as usual!

Bone, you are right! In Earthsea knowing the true name of something grants unlimited power over it! One of my favourite series ever. Now, you just have to mention Morgaine of “The Gate of Ivrel” (maybe the next time you field a Noctilith Crown) and I’ll swear unending love to you.

One of the most entertaining ones I have watched from you. Thanks!

Traditionally topped with pepperoni, sausage, bell peppers, onions, and olives, the supreme pizza combines some of the most popular pizza toppings into one delicious slice. … Some pizzerias also include mushrooms on their supreme pizza, while others include Canadian bacon for added meatiness.
