This might be way out there, but what if you ran the Tallarn as a Genestealer Cult? That way you could still use all your regular dudes, tanks are a-ok, have the option to sneak in a few converted characters, some awesome outflanking rules which would be quite fluffy for the Jackals, and best of all… The rough riders could be actual Jackals! (hell, the ogryn are abborants too, while we’re at it) Might be way too ‘counts as’ for the channel, but would work strangely well. Also I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as much as I did during… Read more »

Loved the batrep but makes me so sad to see how squishy Tyranids are without a Maleceptor, does TTT have one? and if not I’d love to donate one to the channel when things go back to normal just to see one be used in that awesome colour scheme.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was “Larry the Lictor” sneaking up behind these pesky Heavy Weapons Teams, charging them, beheading two of them and tagging the other squads so they cannot shoot the next round?

The jammiest thing about Lawrence is that he rolls stupidly high when he needs too (and even when he doesn’t) AND then has the temerity to roll LOW when he needs too as well (and even when he doesn’t).

A game developer once said, “the best games are ones that stay fun even when you lose.” When the games get lopsided you guys manage to get angry without pouting. I love it!

Honestly Bone, who doesn’t like your lost writing? That boggles my kind. There has been one MAYBE two lopsided games and one of those games a Brass Scorpion messed everything up how are people going to blame you for that? Keep doin you my dude ✊✊

3 minutes in, I really feel that it’s not fair that bone insists on writing the lists. The public gaslighting on Lawrence really is quite astounding to watch. Spider, I’m here if you need to talk.

Bone, I totally understand as Black Adder once said… Sometimes I believe that my path is strewn with cow pats from the devil’s own satanic herd.

I am with you…. as I used to say when I was a kid…. it’s not fair…not fair…not fair…. I am going out to the garden and eat some worms. Why I said this has been lost in the annals of time.

But good news … Covid-19 shelter in place is lifted in the UK today…..Hooray!

Long-time watcher, first-time poster. You guys are the best, and I absolutely love this channel. You’ve made this lockdown situation far more tolerable, and I love your videos. In a self-interest mode though, are Chaos Daemons on the horizon for your projects? I know you have Nurgle and Khorne units, but I don’t even see them very often. And of course if you added Slaanesh and Tzeentch, that’d be pretty sweet too…Thanks for all that you do!

Did you touch up the Tyranid force? The paintjobs look sharper or is it just the new camera setup?

Thank you very much for your hard work anyway!

Aw, Bone! I feel so sorry for you, man, playing against Ranald Lawrence and his blessed dice. But these battle reports are never better than they are when you’re having an absolutely terrible time. In a more enlightened age, of course, Lawrence would have long since been burnt at the stake by a mob of angry peasants for that kind of witchy dice-rolling. Excellent work as always chaps! Thanks very much for keeping it all going. As several kindly folk have said below, I’m sure no-one’s fussed if the schedule slips a bit so you fellas can have a rest.… Read more »

Brilliant show as always! Just a couple of things to think about for next Nid time: Exocrine: -There is a strat for moving and shooting as having been stationary, extremely useful. -The exocrine’s weapon beast rule does not ignore heavy weapon negative modifier when moving, that would be the tyrannofex’s bio tank rule. -They get plus one to hit when stationary, so it would hit on threes for the most time. -The new symbiostorm (extra hits on fives) spell is amazing when combined with the exocrine -Voracious ammo is nice, but I’d say Dermic symbiosis (5++ and count wounds twice… Read more »

Lockdown could quite possibly have taken the standard battle report banter to the next level. The new edits with close ups etc are gold. If anyone fast forwards to the actual batrep out of choice they have no soul.

Poor bone. I see Spiders constant beating of the dice odds are starting to take their toll. Keep strong buddy ?
Don’t forget Exocrines get +1 to hit if they don’t move. You’d have got a few more hits in a couple of turns there.
Good fun report though. Enjoyed watching on a sunny Sunday afternoon. ?

Jeeeezzzz Bone Let Lawrence write the lists again! Stop hogging all the list writing goodness in your vegetable patch. My conspiracy theory is that you’re the big bad of the channel, a puppet master if you will and you secretly have a hold over poor old Lawrence. You’ve taken over the lists, you roll around in his lovely flower beds, you moved into his house what will you take next Bone what will you take next !!!!!!.

P.S The B in B, Bone stands for Baddy…. Obvs.

I’ve been in the “don’t let Lawrence write the lists ever again” camp since you started doing it Bone. That’s been because I genuinely think you writing both lists has resulted in an increase in quality of the channel. You have a great flair in creating interesting, balanced armies that result in a close and entertaining game. I don’t miss the days of the, “this is really quite a fluffy list” intro followed by an inexorable two turn tabling!

I know this might not be kosher but has Bone ever demanded that he uses Lawrence’s red dice for a game? Lol.

Bone, don’t forget your Exocrines if they don’t move get +1 to hit so they’d hit on 3s normally. You only missed 2 shots on that Hellhound 🙂

And against the Bullgryns, even with the Nightshroud power, would hit on 4s.

I AM ONE WITH THE PLANTS, I AM TURNIP!!! It sounds way more bad ass when you yell and channel that rage toward the spider.
So orks are fungus and tyranids are turnips, Bone has spoken, change my mind.

Hey team 🙂 Haven’t been posting as much as usual lately, but still enjoying and watching all the batreps! You guys are doing phenomenal, but dont break your backs over this. Take it from someone who knows, working very long weeks over time can take It’s toll, and you might have to pay the price a lot later then you think. So do take care to reduce the work hours to more sustainble levels 🙂 I for one and looking forward to subbing to you guys for many more years to come.
