Lovely game as always gents! Love Creations of Bile. Can’t wait to get mine on table. regarding your terrain, are the ruins airbrushed? Look great as well!

Epic game. I’m quite certain that this sets you up for an awesome narrative game. Bile being Bile, he’s obviously taken Hector prisoner and somehow someone (maybe even the Eldar connection from previous campaigns) have found out where he is held and go to rescue him! Make it happen you wonderful, wonderful people!!

Beard you’re looking very good here, hair is on fleek 😉
Is there somewhere we can listen or purchase the TT soundtracks because they’re so good!
EDIT: great game lads. Next time we bring the Creations of Bile can we bring warptime. No questions ask, just bring it!

Spider, very curious what you think about using something like flamers on the Valkyrie riding units. Drop them close range and roast an opponent then dare them to charge if the flamers can survive long enough to do so. Also, would the Taurox Gatling Cannon on the Taurox’s be a choice for 1/2 of Taurox’s you take since infantry is of such importance at least so far in 9th?

That felt very story book to watch! Scions brutally alpha striking onto the map, Chaos marines and possessed not even blinking at their losses and smashing lines back into them. Bile hobbling up and cracking skulls with his pimp-cane, set on fire and destroying the lone fool. Missiles and air support cracking overhead. You two made it so fun to watch with your reactions as well, this battle would make a great movie scene *drools at thought*

Fun game! That was definitely not the most optimum list for Bile and I hope you can guys bring it up a notch next time. We have to see more Agents of Bile games. I have several armies including Emperor’s Children and Bile works good in either that army or running his own army. I truly wish they update Chaos with much needed help including Bile having a much better warlord trait because what he has now is practically worthless.

That one was totally awesome. That scion hero! Can just picture him leaping with his knife and getting torn out of the air by Bile for his courage. What a badass.

Watching Bile just imperiously tower over the lesser mortals was so cool. He’d be absolutely terrifying to face, even by 40k standards.

No sure paying 3CP for an Exhaulted Champion is really worth it. Rather have the CP. But a fun List Beard.

Sorry for all the comments but found another rules issue. Stupid as it is Tempestors (Slade) don’t have refractor fields.

So many 9e games are now showing so little about the meta game with all the changes that are inbound – 2W marines and weapon profile changes – that it’s hard to know where the game is going.
Question for the TTT team did you get to play test with the 2W marines or is this all new to you guys too? It seems a bit crazy to claim play testers balanced the game when so many data sheets are changing

Too bad you forgot the (already bad) warlord trait of Bile on the surviving Meltaguy.

You guys did remember alot of DTTFE’s tho (even on the helbrute who doesn’t get it)!

Really enjoyed the battlereport cheers both. I think both armies looked like a lot of fun to play.

I might have misinterpreted what was happening but it appeared as though the Officer of the Fleet was denying Beard some primary points even though Beard had more units within 3”. Are you able to guide me plz?

You may be living in the future, but currently +1 to hit for plasma gives you safe overcharging as rolls of 1 go to 2.
I look forward to it changing in the new codexs to unmodified rolls of 1.
You said you couldn’t re-roll wounds with the order “Elimination Protocol…” on non vehicles/monsters but you could have still issued “Bring it down” to re-roll 1s to wound

I havent watched the Battle Report yet…but I was thinking of making an alternative versions of my 8Emperor’s Children army list featuring Fabius Bile…or a Creations of Bile list (but I’ll need to make more units, like chaos marine troops and maybe a Deamon Prince/Fail Primarch project)..so interested to see how they perform… After watching Battle…wow…fun game…Im liking Fabius with his buffs and durability ..the Helm of Many eyes seems like a worth while relic too.. I think this style of army…all with the Mark of Slannesh and a Sorcerer instead of an Exalted champ, with Prescience and Delightful agonies… Read more »

Advanced counter measures is used before the battle, and lasts the whole game.

Good game and nice to see the creations out, but there were a lot of rules and tactical errors in this one, from ones that did nothing, like forgetting the psychic powers for the master of possession are auras rather than on one unit, to increasing the damage characteristic of the possessed at one point, so I think they killed at least one character they shouldn’t have. But oh well.

love it! What a great game! FYI: I just finished listening to an Art of War Down under podcast on frontline gaming and one of the top Aussie player talks you through his agents of bile list and how he thinks Fabius Bile is going to bring the heat in 9th edition. Worth a listen Beard.

That flyer shooting all and everything at Bile was just like the scene when Luke Skywalker faced the guns of Kylo Ren’s forces in one of the latest Star Wars movies…. So much firepower, and he just dusted it of.. 😀

Gripping game! Tight to the very end. Great to see the Creations of Bile in action for the first time. I’ve struggled to build my inaugural list with them as I don’t have the models necessary to optimize them, but this gave me some ideas on how I might proceed (and what I need to buy… lol). I do have a couple rules nits to call out, though. In Turn 1 Beard used his once-per-game allotment of Insane Bravery, so he would not be able to do it again for the large CSM unit on Turn 2. The other observation… Read more »

Makes me want to dust off my old 4th Ed Mech Guard army in the loft! Thank you for another great battle report, only minor thing being the stratagem use on the CSM, then again we all know Beard would roll a 1 anyway!

Mr. Lawrence in every game: “I will be destroyed”
Me and everyone else: “Yeah, I know how this will end”
Fantastic game, really fun and more balanced that I thought it would be. The Creations are interensting and everytime I see your Scions army I feel awfully tempted to start one too (…so, please, think of my economic wellbeing and don’t use it too much).
Thank you for helping me survive through this terribly hot saturday!

Beard, quick bit of tactical advice for you. At 46min you used the Dermal Chitination stratagem on your possessed to give them +1 toughness when they were targeted by the Scions, but as the Scions were shooting with strength 3 hot-shot lasguns at them it didn’t do anything (ie strength 3 wounds on 5+ regardless of whether they are shooting at toughness 4 or 5) and therefore was unfortunately a wasted CP. About three minutes later, however, Spider used the Point-Blank Efficacy stratagem to make his Scion’s hot-shot weaponry shoot at +1 strength against your Chaos Space Marines squad, which… Read more »

A great watch on Saturday morning. Love the fun you guys had playing this one. Those last few battle rounds were great.

Seeing the Militarum Tempestus play always makes me regret not researching my guard army more when I returned to the hobby. Got to love Cadia though!

i think the creation’s of bile have some legs tbh, but would of been cool to see you swap out a power for warp time on the master of possession because he’s mark of tzeetch, or include a sorc for warp time just for that double move, double advance all at +1 for crazy long threat range.
