Hey guys, Can you link where you got the crashed cruiser? I thought I found the people that make it and may have given them money already and would feel so much better about it if was the same people you got yours from. Also love you guys. I really appreciate the amount and level of content you put out. It is difficult to find someone to play one game a month here so I again really appreciate the two of you playing back to back games for us.

The first Twilight movie came out in 2008, Bone. You were in your mid-twenties – hardly a young teen. (Edit: didn’t see the Grotty comment :/)
Thanks for the good work, and please make Myconoid, ie. a plant, character for the next Cast of Players iteration.

Speaking of good horror films, have you seen Underwater?!? Spider – I think you especially would enjoy it! Awesome Lovecraftian-horror movie 😈

While Bone did try to make it balanced, it was not. T’au commanders are still insane and CSM are just a rubbish parody of their Imperial counterpart.

Just imagine Event Horizon is indeed set in 40k setting…What if they took a trip to the warp without Gellar fields… Considering time is non-linear in the warp they got pretty lucky to not encounter some CSM who would have taken an extreme interest in pre-emperor Terra…

Congratulations Bone you had a really good game there. I am glad you are playing the mobile Tau. Your marker light support seemed really good.Those marker drones were really able to stick around for a long time until they decided to get in front of the commanders. Love the Tau lists you are making! The only interesting note was that Lawrence was, very cleverly, able to move slightly out of the path of the bombers. I wonder if there was a way to set up the danger bombing zones in such a way as to punish Lawrence for moving out… Read more »

Really enjoy these reports and it’s so nice seeing T’au back on the table. A question for Mr Bone(if he can answer) – with the changes to CP and detachments, can I take an all battlesuit/vehicle (well, and drones) army now without completely shafting myself? I’ve wanted to run a list around a Stormsurge for ages and need an excuse to buy the model (and the aftermarket 3d printed arms).

Ooh you guys are just killing me with those little chats…..There’s literally (is that spelled corrrectly? Looks so wrong…) no better way for me to start the day then sitting in front of my computer, having a little breakfast, big mug of coffee and watch your bat reps….Perfection, I say!! Very very cool bat rep aswell, but really I didn’t expect anything else 😉
Edit: I really do miss the rest of the team, though! Hopefully that crap is over the very next day!! 🙁

I am at the sequence where barbatos charges the crisis bomb, question:
don’t you have the reroll 1 to wound/to hit due to being farsight?

Me and my brother got caught out in the twilight trap, we wondered why there were so many teenage girls in the cinema. Genuinely thought it would be like Blade

Just wanted to point out that when Bone resolves his overwatch with his commanders he forgot about the farsight sept’s new ability. The chargers are within 12″ so he effectively had one markerlight on them.

Great bat rep dudes!

Tinfoil hat on* Are you guys playing with the 9th edition battlefield size already? Eyeballing it with some of the overhead shots based off of the width of one of the admec terrain pieces, it looks as if the board is only 5 feet wide. Also the crashed ship looks bigger than normal when on the board.

Bone, when your crisis suits were overwatching, in Lawrence’s turn 2, they still had the experimental weapon that means sixes become 2 hits. I’m pretty sure that still applies in overwatch which means those terminators would have had twice as many hits on them. Also, farsight enclaves re-roll ones to wound against enemies within 6. You forgot that a bunch of times against the disco lord and other units that were within 6 of your crisis suits.

If you want to see Bone look brooding, just roll a handful of FNPs where if you pass 3 of them, your alpha unit will survive with 1 wound.

I went and watched the first one myself as well on a date. Not a good film for many reasons. Also it came out in 2008 just as a heads up. Also Lost Boys was amazing. Was the first movie I got to watch alone in the theater, though my father had to buy the ticket for me as I wasn’t old enough. Event Horizon was fantastic. It is first contact with the warp by humanity..love it. Chronicle was one that I also really enjoyed, and while not super successful, is a really solid film. It was the big breakout… Read more »

My buddies and I just introduced our friend to Event Horizon the other night, always a classic. The screenwriter, Philip Eisner, has actually acknowledged that the 40K universe was a big inspiration for the plot of Event Horizon!
Great game by the way, I always enjoy seeing Bone get to use his Tau especially in non-castle lists. Thanks for churning out the entertainment!

Great game! Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your hard work and perseverance during these emotionally turbulent times. As a person who has lost a couple loved ones over these past months due to this damm virus, seeing genuine friendship between everyone helps bring some enjoyment back into life. Really quite therapeutic. Your consistency for achieving higher quality content is quite staggering tbh and the long hours of investment shines through your beautifully produced product. Having you cool peanuts in the community, is in my opinion, a part of what makes 40k so special. Apologies… Read more »

Come for the 40K, stay for the discussion of great films. Event Horizon is a classic, agree that it could easily be describing the warp. Chronicle is great too, Dane Dehaan also went on to be in a few other hollywood films, he was Harry Osborne in the Amazing Spiderman films and he was in the recent adaptation of Valerian (which wasn’t great, but he was pretty good in)
