BEEEEEESSSSS!!! BEES GNAWING AT YOUR SOUL!
Love seeing you guys play 🙂

Please roll a dice after shooting with flash gitz… 6+ and they just go again, and again, and again… A perfectly balanced, silly orky ability. In kill team I have turned 4 shots into 20 with it!
That said, you did a lot better than I did in my first game of 9th with the orks… Absolute pasting at the hands of the Tau.
Roll on what ever you are excited about in the future! Cannot wait!

This dynamic is always so wonderful, regardless of the game outcome. It’s just great to see two chaps who are obviously great friends and who have a flair for the dramatic playing a game together. Almost makes me nostalgic for the months where it was just the two of you (but of course I love the rest of the gang too much to ever want to go back). Keep up the good work!

I love Bone and I love the Orks!

As a rules note though, stratagems cannot be used on embarked units (like the flashgitz). So Bone can save the disappointment of wasting CP next time! I’m still watching the first turn so maybe this was caught already.

Not sure if anyone has pointed this out already – Bone said that if the Deffkilla Wartrike hadn’t died he was going to fight again, however the stratagem for Ork Characters to fight again is specifically for when they have just died.
Perhaps he was actually referring to some other unit fighting again?

Why no rolling VP scores? Too depressing for Bone? Poor Bone. I got steamrolled like this by a demon bomb list. They were on every objective on turn with flesh hounds. I scored like 5 VPS the whole game and my opponent was max points.

Great batreps guys. 😀
Just one thing on the Ramshackle rule, it doesnt reduce the damage BY 1, it reduces it TO 1. 😉 So the trukk could have survived if you would have rolled a 6 on the last 4 dmg he took. 😀
Hugs and kisses Björn.

Good game guys and great to see the knights of titan and the spider out again. Despite the bad/good luck for each respective player, this game was definitely a highlight on how important board control is, grots are just too damm squishy to be worth it now. I think your best bet might be 10 man boys units in trukks, the whole package went up a mere 11 points and gives you a nice blob of wounds to just sit on objectives.

Another 6 weeks of not seeing a mate or family this will help heaps! Haven’t even been able to play a game of 9th haha…

The Orks are well painted, but I don’t understand the green colour choice for the vehicles. Green on green.. I think a different colour would have been a better choice.

Hey Bone,
sure the “Follow me Ladz!”-WT enhances the Deffkilla Wartrikes “SPEEDWAGH!” aura to 9″? It only says “WAGH!” ability if I am right. He would simply get a 3″ “WAGH!” ability on top of his 6″ “SPEEDWAGH!” ability.

Great batrep, as a new GK and 40K player, I’m always super eager to see them in action.

Have you guys ever considered creating a Tabletop Tactics soundboard app so that all of us fans who play games can have the sounds of TT TV at our own games? I’d love to hear things like…:

Spider: “That’s four wounds there!”

Bone: “My bag of beeeeeeees!”

Beard: “Seven! *SEVEN!* THAT’S THE BLESSED NUMBER!”

And other such noises and statements that appear in every single batrep/tactica/narrative etc etc

I’m sure the guys here also could add to the long list of quotes!

I can’t wait to see the next battle report when Bone just smashes through the studio door from the garden with his bumblebee pals and a pouch full of yellow jackets dresses up as a sunflower. That would be epic!

Fantastic production value as always, best there is! As an ork player you really can make vehicle lists work, I promise! Go deathskulls and minimum squad sizes for the sweet sweet re-rolls. Stand out units with deathskulls are:
Megatrakk Scrapjets, Shokkjump Dragstas, Deff Dreads (deep strike), and squads of 3 bikers with power klaws in each.

Bone vs. Spider is always my favorite clash!
I’m curious what the plans are for the Tactica series with 9th edition? Unless I am mistaken the missions are much the same so it would only be an alteration in the list building and play style potentially? Either way, looking forward to seeing where you take that!
Keep safe guys!

I really enjoyed this batrep. Nice to see the Spider rolling some dice again. I also really liked Bone trying something new with a Speedfreekz list.

Cheers for the quality content guys!

Ahh I missed the old spider v bone matchup. Regardless of the outcome I know this matchup will 100% of the time be an absolutely pleasure to watch. Nothing like this classic interaction:
Bone: “Go on. Make your saves now.”
Spider: *rolls triple 6*
Spider (sheepishly): “…Bone…..Oh no.”

Owch, Orks took a real pasting there. Unlucky Mr Bone, still like your list!
A quick question, where can i find the rules changes to GK Smite? There is no change in the GK FAQ or the FAQ for RotD…. I’m just wondering were you can find this?

Does Duty’s Eternal half damage…. i thought it was just -1 damage after an FAQ… maybe flash gits are 2 damage or something.

Why is Spider considered to be the villain of the channel? I am still waiting for a call from my university friends if I want to play 40k for a living. XD
On top of that he is such a pro that it worked out perfectly.

Guys I love your bat reps, the banter, the quality of the productions and all. You do a stellar job and I hope you continue for a long time! But.. Bone vs. Spider. What’s the overall score? Have Bone ever won? Personally I don’t like going into a match knowing which side is gonna win >95% (99.9%?) of the time. It’s like Formula 1, which I also love watching. Who will win today? Probably Mercedes.. Gets a bit boring after a while. This battle was already skewed by the factions and then even further by the players controlling them. And… Read more »

I’ve been playing mono orks since the start of 8th. Besides bikes that are absolute trash (341pts for 12 lol), flash gitz that have a solid datasheet imo, but got a Huge point hike for nothing (24pts to 32pts, really GW) the Flyers & shock attack gun (RIP) I feel orks are not as bad off as peeps seems to think. Played 5 games of 9th so far (semi-competitive) against different armies each time, won 4 of them (only lose was against grey knights haha). Holding the mid field for at least 2 turns seems to way to go for… Read more »

As much fun as all the other games are, it is always good to see a slightly harder edged game with Lawrence. I do feel sorry for Bone a little having to take on Lawrence with Orks though. I think if he was using one of ‘his’ factions that have done well coming into 9th like DG or SW it could have been a lot closer.

Ah, something truly comforting and familiar about a good old Bone v Spider bat rep.
The constant Spider giggles at Bone’s misfortune……
B-Bone’s slow descent into madness………
The constant bickering………
The inevitable outcome………

On a less gameplay related note: What does everyone think about Grey Knights and Primaris? Should the GK remain as the last bastion for the old school marines? Or should they start bringing in Primaris recruits one day?
Primaris proportions and GK detailing would look amazing, but Terminators are central to the Grey Knights and Gravis doesn’t quite have the same feel. I’m not sure either way, so maybe somebody can sway me.

Orks orks orks!!! Dont give up on them please, its such a beautiful army. Lots of laughs and good show, nice to see the Spider is alive and well 🙂
Love any combo on this channel but the Bbone Spider mixture is still pound for pound the most hilarity to be had!

Not half an hour in and Bone is already cursing Spider off camera – shame on you Benjamin!
You don’t allow Spider to even appear on the channel for weeks, I’m sure you’re still not letting him write his own lists, and Ben is in every damn report now.
STOP BEING SO SELFISH BENJAMIN AND LET SPIDER HAVE FUN!
Lawrence, thanks for everything I’ve learned from watching your expert meta-defining tactics! Don’t listen to them – we love you!

Isn’t fury of the proven +1 to hit for a model in a unit not the whole unit.

I have noticed melee armies are much stronger in this edition, time will tell if it is over done one way or the other. I have noticed that you say the points are stop gaps and not final, which is good, but may i ask if using power may be a more balanced option at this time? I am using power right now to build a few lists to teach the kids how to play 9th.
And Lawrence – you are not a villain, you are a dice wizard.

Marines of all stripes are just off the charts at the moment. If you want to film interesting and balanced games featuring marine factions you need to run them against the best most optimized lists that other factions can bring. Orks do still have some competitive 9th edition builds that can at least put up a fight against Marines. But warbikers are just terrible, at almost 300 points a unit under these new silly points values you just can’t bring them. The Ork buggies are by and large worse than a single space marine aggressor in terms of output and… Read more »

Is it just me or is the whole teasing about “something will happen” driving you also away from the hobby? The return of the primarchs has reawakened my interest in Warhammer 40k a couple of years ago. I’ve started in 2nd Edition and came back sometime in 8th Edition. Some guys and even the owner of my FLGS advised me to wait for 9th Edition because a lot of stuff is suppoed to change. Now 9th Edition has arrived and TTT preaches in almost every video that everything is only transitional (points, rules, etc.) and will change once again but… Read more »

Hi guys, more specifically Grey Knight experts. I was just wondering if you could deepstrike a character with the 3″ range stratagem (dynamic Insertion), use inner fire power with the range extender (Powerful Adept) then use gate of infinity to take it back to safety? It seems to me that you can use gate on a unit that has moved already so why not one that had deep striked already.

I’m feeling ranty, today… I’m really thankful for the job you do and the effort you put in filming enjoyable games, ’cause I have to say that with all those unbalanced points it’s difficult to really have “feel good” evening playing with my friends, there’s too much saltiness and reproach against GW. We all know that it’s just a question of being patients, we trust you on that, but every time I try to play it boggles me they would release points so badly done. Mind you, it’s not cause I lose… I’m on a six game victory streak, but… Read more »

Orks have a lot of potential but lack consistency. The GK just murdered them. There is a moment in turn one for the Orks I thought ‘they have board control, knights have castled up, Orks are gonna pin them with bikes and shoot them with gorkanought and flashgitz. Use the gretchin as smite screen. Imagine my surprise at how they dealt with that. Unlucky bone. Stick with the Orks. They are the most fun faction. They need you.

Just a general question re: 9th, near the end where the Bikers charged that immortal Interceptor unit engaged with the Ork vehicle. After Bone fluffed his rolls, Lawrence declared they would all attack these bikers. (@1:42:36 markish) Could they actually do that? I thought to attack they have to be within 1/2″ an inch of a model or 1/2″ an inch of a model who is within half an inch, but it was my thought that the rear most Grey Knight couldn’t move in any case because he was in contact with the Ork vehicle? Or am I making rules… Read more »

Duty eternal was FAQ’ed to only reduce damage by 1. Was it only FAQ’ed in the SM codex, and it still halves damage for some factions like GKs?

A bit of a mixed bag for me, game was so short and brutal. Anyway, some rules stuff I noticed, and a question about 9th ed rules. Grot gunners on scrapjets get +1 to hit with twin bigshootas etc. Kustoms boosta blastas have grendades they can throw at 6″. Flashgits do shoot again on 6+ after shooting (this has been commented on in previous batreps) Wartrike Wrong strength on twin boomsticks with trike, Str 5 vs T4 inceptors should not wound on 6s even with -1 to wound. Wartrike has a Snagga claw you can shoot, which was forgotten. And… Read more »
