Actually chances are Fabius has cloned himself again, so that cuts every queue in half whenever it happens!

I was a bit confused by the Biker charge. As soon as Bone got the low charge so couldn’t make the heavy guns i don’t understand why he went into the possessed. The character incorrectly being used aside. Wouldn’t it have been better to just going for the CC marines giving the spider a morale issue on two units and losing a lot less bikes?

As a long time fan of the Dark Angels looking forward to seeing more of them in the board! A pure deathwing might not have the CP but it makes up for that by being pure awesome!

Well done! Excellent battle report. Dumping the core in the Chaos psychic phase was the best!

I love the new format! The top down view updates, the little animations and sound effects it just all adds to the already excellent formula you guys got worked out! I love how you guys play WYSIWYG (most of the time) and how you try to change up and keep the games/armies fresh. Still hoping we see Tyranids (Hive Fleet Gorgon) VS Space Wolves (Ragnar, Wulfen and Noughts) for turn 3 fun!

ah guys! I took the opportunity over lock down to subscribe to Tabletop Tactics and get back into the hobby after a 12 year gap! (currently building up and painting new Vior’la Tau list). Absolutely loving the shows – massive inspiration to get back into the hobby so thank you. Have to say – I always secretly back Bone. We need B-Bone merchandise. I can already see the “That’s the most condescending thing you have ever said to me” meme t-shirts.

How Spider won this I have no idea… Made me laugh pretty hard when half his remaining army got sucked into the warp though.

This game was really really good….again bone is killing it with the lists! I’m really enjoying his lists and the banter back and forth has been great! Been so good to see Lawrence back so much…..the smart cookie reference I swear I nearly wet myself laughing and Bones response was classic

Great to see the DA – great work as always. Rules question though: would the CSM have been able to pile in and advance if the black knights were all dead?

I always root for Bone (nothing against Lawrence but he does have the worst luck and i cant help but support the underdog), but there is something hilarious about having the obvious upper hand and then it slipping through your fingers turn after turn! Another great game guys and really appreciate the work you’re putting in, its making my lock down far easier to deal with and i appreciate that!

I just want to say, and I think everyone thinks the same here. How much of an amazing job you guys are doing. Every bat rep is met with the same bubbly, funny light harted ness as ever.
Personally you are making this lock down manageable.
Great work to you guys and the hole team. I hope your all staying safe.
Keep up the amazing work guys.

Keep on geeking.

Money is an issue for everyone in this age of lockdown but I would be happy to double my yearly subscription fee if it would stop Laurence from shreiking WOOOOHOOOOO and OOOOOOHHHHHHH and THAT’S 16 SAVES MR BONE, 16 SAVES at such a high pitch that the windows in my house have become cracked. 😁

why not either rotate sanga in or just do a couple of kill team bat reps? or you could do an AoS game, always find them quicker to play.

Dear Mr. Bone, allow me to dispense some moustache-related wisdom. 1. Don’t trim the middle of your tash, even when it starts growing over your lip and drives you *insane*. Leaving it to grow out will increased fullness and resplendence in the finished article. 2. Get yourself some good wax for the initial stages (I heartily recommend Captain Fawcett’s Gentleman’s Stiffener) to get the hair up and away from your lip. Also, get used to drinking tea with care (or through a straw) because melting is a reality now. 3. When the hair from the middle reaches about 1-2cm past… Read more »

Hey guys, wasn’t sure where to ask this, but is there any way to watch the live stream you did of the announcement for 9th? I live on the west coast in the US, so getting up a 545am for my toy army mans wasn’t gonna happen…

Spider and BBone. No one should work sixty hour weeks!!!! None the less your hard work means a lot to those of us who watch the vids. Once lockdown is over please take some time off!!! Go to the beach or something, buy yourselves something nice. Much love.

Leave it to Barba-tosser to bend the rules in his favor…. 😉

Entertaining game, as always. As an Emperor’s Children player, I was rooting for my comrades-in-arms, the Dark Angels, to take down the Black Lesion. Those wishy-washy, can’t-decide-on-a-god-to-follow wannabes…. Ah, well.

Looking forward to the next one!

My brothers and I were gathered around the vox attentively listening to this Imperial broadcast. We were really nervous when we learned our brothers were being led by General B-Bone. Even after Spider’s love of the warp destroyed much of the heretic forces, our forces faltered and failed to press home the advantage. The Lion is Furious. If I had to identify one specific tactical error… It would have to be the charge of the bikers into everything! Did the lesson from the “Charge of the Light Brigade” M1.9 mean nothing? Following this, my Deathwing and Greenwing brothers have been… Read more »

So you guys now have Highlight Reports, but how about a show that is just the intro? Between 1.5 to 2 hours in length? You still have army lists and act as though a game is going to happen – but it doesn’t. You could have lots of Grotty Says tips and maybe have a format where Chef has to just sit in the middle of a Bone and Beard intro? I would watch those religiously.

Great game guys, shame that it was probably decided by Barbatos using the warp to get into combat that he wasn’t supposed to be in (as you called out with the slide on the side). Also no blame from me as I cant count how many times my local group has messed up the charge, pile-in, consolidation rules in general. Fun stuff though as always and keep up the great content.

AHAHAHAHA see what happens when you put your faith in the dark gods Lawrence! The creed of the Apostle is what will carry you into the anvil of war and forge you into a true servant of the dark gods! Wonderful game and the B-Bones banter made it even better! A true blood bath!

Spider wanting to guarantee casting powers with a Master of Possession?! You have to recognize the power of the great word! Word bearer strat ensures psychic success! Would love to see the faithful get run sometime with all the possessed you now have.

Bone, thanks for all the content you guys have been pumping out. So many armies to remember how to use. Good to see the Dark Angels in the rotation. You may like to consider making your Black Knights part of a Vigilus Attack Squadron detachment. That way you can play the Swift Strike stratagem: Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase after an ATTACK SQUADRON unit from your army has fought. That unit can immediately make a move (and Advance) as if it were the Movement Phase. If there are any enemy units within 1″ it can Fall Back instead.… Read more »
