BBone, turn 1 – SALAMANDER REROLLS

Yes! I think the Obsidian Dragons heard about the foul Imperial/Xenos alliance on CM-9 and in a Universe of compromise, some men don’t. They put and end the Xenos. How will they deal with their brothers?

Great entertaining game. What changes would it take to make the wraithknight viable? Strat for +1 invulnerable? better weapon profiles?

What a cracking game! That Ynnari getting back up on a 4+ and then regenerating wounds seems a bit much!

Keep up the good work

oh man, im seeing marines hit banshees on 3’s but shouldn’t they it be on 4’s with the minus 1 to hit with war shout from the exarch? i know its hard to keep up with all the special Aeldari rules

Also love the Wraithknight… soooo pretty!

I hope once all this social distancing is over we can see some guests bring some true coloured chapters to the channel and not some grey proxies. Would love to see some Green Salamander, Black Raven Guard & Iron hands grace the screen.

Great batrep as usual. Loving the ‘new’ Eldar. Just wondering whether you guys can easily release the freeview vids using the on demand platform as well? Recently I have been getting pop-up ads when I watch your content on youtube. I guess it means that your vids are becoming pretty gosh darn popular, which can only be a good thing.

*Spider writings his diary* Dear diary It is now day 463 of the lockdown, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep my sanity. I’m starting to hear voices. One of them is saying “wooooow” sounding a bit like Owen Wilson. It is not ghost, as Mr. Wilson is not dead. Or is he? I’ve lost track with the outside world. Sometimes, at night, I swear I hear the sound of dice being thrown around in the Studio, and a voice saying “I am a peanut, everytiiime, statistics doesn’t apply to you, do they?” Oddly enough, I miss Bone *Bone enters… Read more »

Great to see the Eldar out again. Imagine the ynnari traits and relics on wraithseers ^^. I run yvraine with 2x wraithseers pretty much as standard now. Lord of rebirth on one and lost shroud on the other with d canon. Great fun and mean units. One thing to mention RE rules: spirit seer aura does not work like normal aura… The spirit seer has to be within 6″ of the target enemy according to the codex. Also the extra attack strat only works if you have one of each cwe, DE and harleys detatchement. Meaning the only source for… Read more »

a 5 man squad of banshees couldnt even kill 1 primaris, and then they hit back and wipe the squad. even with bad rolling thats still ridiculous. the fact that a basic primaris with no buffs has more attacks than a banshee is hilariously stupid. GW really dropped the ball with aeldari PA as a whole, especially with harlequins not even getting a real book and ynnari actually just getting nothing.

1:24:34 the yncarne gets back up with Back from the Brink- sadly, this is just for infantry/biker characters, so she can’t reset unfortunately 🙈

Nonetheless, supreme work as always guys, I love how you sound like an old married couple ❤️

if Yvraine can get in any transport can she cast psychic powers from the back of a venom?

also why does everyone think she is rubbish? she can cast two with a built +1 and hits like an autarch in combat?

I’m really enjoying this batrep, it’s lovely to see some of the old Ulthuan Ghost models dusted down and deployed on the tabletop.

I am still not sold on the Repulsor, think its far too expensive and too much of a target. Giving it a 5+ is a bit too much though, maybe reducing damage by 1? I would also like to see its movement increased to 14 as its too slow for its points

Unfortunately, Ynnari cannot use the new Exarch powers.

The only “new rule” Ynnari players got in Psychic Awakening was “you cannot use any of the new rules in this book for any reason, thank you for your 30 quid”, lol.

Also, the +1 attack strat requires you to have a Ynnari army that includes Drukhari and Harlequins as well as Craftworlds.

Very Beautiful armies. The Ghosts look incredible.

Bone, did you have 2 cp, when the Yncairne deployed? Because.. Auspex Scan. It was actually a pretty bad move setting her up, as the closest target to the aggressors.

Excellent content as always gents. Seeing Wraith Knights (and Stormsurges) makes me sad because they were so good, and now they’re so, so bad. I look at the amazing stuff Imperial Knights get and the xenos codex superheavies often just seem like an error left over from index days. I often look at my Obelisk with sadness (not a euphemism, honest). A shame GW have had 3 years, Vigilus, 3 Chapter Approved, and Psychic Awakening books in which to fix these pointless but beautiful models, but haven’t addressed them at all. Not to criticise them too hard – they’ve cranked… Read more »

Great batrep as always, good to see the Ynarri out again. One question about them though, I always see them played as Craftworlds (or ‘Quins) and I’m sure I’ve heard you comment on the Drukhari Ynarri combo before, do they really not work well as the dark kin?

Loving the updated Ghosts. Another fantastic looking TT army.

Will you guys be doing any army showcase episodes in the future. Would be great to see each of your armies in their full glory.

Nice to see the Wraith Knight and some Banshees grace the tabletop.
It does just make me sad how some units in the game are still virtually unplayable, wish they would address that, all codexes have some units that could use tweaks.

Thanks for churning out these batreps, one of the few things keeping me sane right now

Great report, thanks a lot, this was the best one in a while. It’s been quite static movement wise lately in your reports, the armies move a bit for a turn and then stand still mostly and shoot… I guess this one was quite a bit that way too… You met up in the middle and duked it out. But still very promising with a Ynnari army! I’ve been playing them a lot lately. And use some of the units you had too. I added two units of Howling Banshees just becaue GW never can get them right. They seemed… Read more »

Thank you both for putting these on even during the COVID crisis, YOU are both actual mega bosses. Yessss, Salamanders!! Love seeing Flamestorm Aggressors, they are so much fun rolling buckets of dice. Great game, mostly because I love watching Flamestorm Aggressors. I have my own Salamander successor called the Ebonheart Conclave, maybe they will meet the Obsidian Dragons on the battlefield! http://imgur.com/gallery/0PyuNfz Also Bone I know you play a lot of armies so take this as a friendly tip 😊 :take a look at Crucible of Battle (+1 to wound for any Salamanders unit) it is one of the… Read more »

As always – great batrep! I must say that I’m getting a bit tired of the space marines – the more I play them and see them played, it always feel like they have like 125% more on the board power wise than any other army. There were at least as many primaris models as there were eldar models on the table – and they are better at everything. I feel like GW must do something about this soon…

I guess it doesn’t help that the main 2 guys I’m playing have tournament class primaris space marine armies.

Ah damn, the Ynnari are my favourite army lore wise because of the sheer potential they have to alter the very nature of the narrative of 40k… That said they just dont do anything on the table. Whilst this game looked close there were a substantial number of rules mistakes which altered the game the main two were: Back from the brink, it can only be used by infantry and biker characters. This means that the aggressors would have killed the Autarch outright and forced Lawrence to deal with them. Exarch powers, unfortunately they cannot be used by Ynnari (on… Read more »

Damn you, Bone, now I have to watch Ghostbusters again…. Great game, really funny! I see that the crazyness in Bone’s eyes is reaching Joker’s level… will Lawrence survive? As I commented in the past, I’m always in pain when I see (or play) the Repulsors: I love them, but as Bone said for the points they costs they should have 5++. As they stand they are too easy to blow up and that is a huge part of a marine army. I’m also exasperated with GW cause they don’t release the Suppressors, that might act as a support antitank… Read more »
