Spider brings out a host of war engines lead by Abaddon, but with a mighty engine of their own will the Genome and Bone prevail?!

Really love all the stuff you guys do. Relatively new to 40k so sometimes the rules amd jargon etc go over my heid. Apologies if you have already but do you/will you do a video for people like myself. Keep up the good work. Cheers.

Fun game guys despite the maelstrom swing.

Obviously depends on time but how about a game where Lawrence writes both lists? Might be interesting!

Love you both as always, thanks for keeping us entertained.

Easy way to solve the list argument. One man writes the two lists the other man picks who plays which army. Done and dusted.

Hey TT team here is a cool thought came to my mind when you gave us that free Kharn cameo. Might require a bit of work but would be so nice: why don’t you set-up a special space in the website for best of moments extracted from the bat reps. Like the big ones.
The first Kharn Phase for exemple. Not to mention the recent one against the obsidian dragons.
Cheers

Great batrep as ever, thought the terrain setup was awesome and thematic. BBone there’s additional Militarum stratagems that allow you to use all frag grenades or improve to a 5+ to hit that could have helped against the discordant charging

This show just shows how stupid all the supplement releases are. Four books? Crazy. I know that GW wants to get as much money as possible but this is ridiculous. Either they must go digital and merge ALL books into one digital book which will contain everything from every supplement, practically sorted out. Or if using books, do not make such non senses with release so many books and changes in short period of time. I know people are craving for having changes as fast as possible but this is simply not possible to manage and even if I can… Read more »

Hey Lawrence I know it’s a friendly game with Bones and all, plus you probably don’t have all the models for Black Legion. But why keep bringing the Decimators :¨( they are so bad they always die first and they cost so much for what they bring to the table! Anyway, good game anyway. I’ve never seen a Triple Disco Lord build on the channel, could be we see a Flawless Host triple Disco Lord SupCom at some point, I know it’s tough with the Covid and all. Good job once again and thank you so much for your work!… Read more »

Bedallion to you Sir!
i would really like to see an B-Bone “Deathguard” Extravaganza . where he shows us his new list

Great game again guys. Bone, stop making me laugh when I’m trying to edge highlight marines. And if Lawrence wants to write lists then let him… but impose a rule of one on him. No more triple ravagers 🙂

Another good game, I agree with the comment below bone is a great list writer… However… I’m a new subscriber so watched over the last couple of months games… does Bone ever win?. Should I stop routing for him because I feel he gets beat a lot…. feel like I’m backing the wrong guy and maybe should just be clapping for him on a Thursday night as a front line punch bag doing his duty ?

This was such a fun game to watch. I’m usually rooting for the Imperium, but in this case it was awesome to see Abbadon get the win!

Spider, you may not want to hear this, but Bone is a great list writer. It is hard to give him credit, I know, but there have been some great games with his lists… so… you know… sorry.

Tough on those cards! But you should’ve charged the taurox into the lone csm in the last turn!

Hi guys! On Bones Turn one Lawrence got points for Defending an objective. Ambitious surge is only achievable in the same TURN that it was given if i read the rules right. What do you think?

Even though he was not in the bat rep, I do love the Khan Phase you guys have put together. Metal and sparks, the best! Just mentioning him (and getting the accompanying music) made me laugh! MORE KHAN!

There should be something in the Geneva Conventions about such terrifying turns for the Black Legion.

The “Bad Guy” on the channel, says he likes the Dark Angels.
Dark Angels – Fallen – Chaos, Chaos – Fallen – Dark Angels.
(I like the Dark Angels as well, and the Black Legion of course)

I have to say these recent batreps with Mr. Bone writing both lists have been really fun to watch!

But Lawrence clearly feels left out… What if we occasionally change it up a bit and get Lawrence to write two of his “fun” lists and play them against each other? Could be interesting! Or it could just be a tactica game I guess. Just a thought. =)

Perhaps consider a flat 2 for the D3 cards again…..smoothes the Maelstrom luck out a bit

Hey y’all, I have an off the wall suggestion for all of TTT but especially Bone, since it seems like he’s going for dice on the other side of the table more often than anyone else. As much time as you spend on camera and moving around the table, y’all must waste a lot of time spent going “where are my dice”, and nobody really wants a pocket full of dice, it’s awkward to get at them which is why most people don’t do that. Get some rock climbing chalk bags to hold your dice. Chalk bags have openings that… Read more »

Fun battle! My decimators never make it past T2, even with other vehicle threats because — as my friend says — “they just look scary”.

Once again the Spider’s luck wins out – those cards!?! Unlucky BBone? Not much you could have done against that!

Thanks lads. Great game, entertaining as always.

Enjoyed Bones haircut today too. ??

Haven’t even gotten into the lists, but what if the Spider made both the lists for once. Just one time.

So is that how you are going to teach Chef to say it too? By hiding it in proper handshake training?

worth noting the lord discordant gives himself a +1 to hit which affects his triggering of death to the false emperor, so with abaddon he is triggering on 4+ which is really savage. Some really brutal synergies can be triggered with lord discordants

Another absolute great game form you two, those new strats with the tempestus are a tad cheeky!
