Is Chef pure enough to lead the Sisters to glory in his first outing with them, or will Chaos give Beard the strength to take the Black Legion to victory?!

Great battle report guys.

The best bit was the double exploding immolators​. Perhaps tzeentch ( definitely chef’s god of choice with all the trickery and planning) punishing him for playing the sisters.

Really enjoyed the extended post game chat. I appreciate that you don’t always have time but it was really interesting. On occasion it does feel a bit like “That’s the end of the game guys, so long and thanks for all the shoes”

Question: Retributor Superior can take a weapon from the ranged weapon list instead of a boltgun. As the Arden Blade is listed there can the superior take it? second it does say there is a limit to one so can I have multiple? There has to be a restriction somewhere I guess.

Why no Over Watch? I know you have to spend a command point to use them, but there were a couple of instances I thought were crucial to the game, such as the seraphim dropping down around the Havoc marines. It could have made a difference.

Beard, just when you were getting traction they snaffle your ladies (which is not as nice as it sounds). Can’t wait to unleash my ladies. What are your thoughts on running the same army as different orders? Does playing wysiwyg include order uniforms?
You have to laugh at the chain reaction explode…. really funny. Thought Beard was going to wet himself.

You had a chance here to tell the tale of young Abdomen and the passionate ladies… Yet you did not. Disappointing ?

My favorite part was the extensive use of terrain, which is now rightfully in the role of a 3rd player, static but interactive.

Awesome game guys! As a Sisters player, I have some recommendations.

Always put inferno pistols on Serephim. It makes them a legit threat to anything on the board and totally worth the points.

Save your Miracle Dice for your last roll in a series of rolls. Only use MD when it will make a difference. Save 2 MD to guarantee a charge.

For stratagems, one lets you increase a die roll by giving up MD. For 2 CP you can bring a character back.

Cheers.

Excellent game guys, plenty of passion 🙂 and explosions. You did seem to forget the havocs attacking back at the sepharim, the first time they charged, which may have made a difference at the time, if not in the games final result.

I had to pause the video to compose myself after Beard rolled a double one right as he declared he was over charging. Pure gold!

Loved the game and the multi-explosions-madness. I’d love too see it in one of my games (…if possible it should happen to the other player, but I have a bad premonition…). @Chef: I think you handled the sisters quite well, and I always appreciate the effort you put in being precise with the rules. It’s true that Bloody Rose in viable as a stand alone, but I will stick with Valorous Heart with an outrider of flying murderous Roses cause I simply love the resilience of the infantry that way: my girls are though as nails, and they’ll laugh with… Read more »

Couple of things I want to suggest and hope for in the future. I like the recap Chef did here but would it be possible to do like a legit sit-down recap with both players that looks at their POV on what went well and didn’t go well, turning points, thought processes etc. that occurred. It was mostly just Chef and I kind of want to hears Beard’s thoughts. I think Beard missed a bunch of Hateful Assault procs during the game but without counting out attack totals it is hard to know. When is Stig coming back with the… Read more »

Your combined ability to throw dice off the board is very impressive spider has trained you well.

Is it just me or is the shiny new camera not really beneficial for the overall viewing pleasure. The camera constantly tries to focus on different objects in the foreground and background. Fast pans make the picture very blurry. Maybe it’s just the manner of handling? Either that or I’ll need some new optobionics.

Great Batrep! The only thing that would have made it better would have been nigel bigtoof commanded by the one and only BBone. The most favourite of the the TT cast as voted by the internet.*
*no such vote occurred, but i assume it would vote for bbone if it had occured.

Fantastic game! fwiw I’ve run Ephrael a lot and she is a beast. My most recent game against necrons she chewed through a 20 warrior blob by herself over the course of 2 turns they kept reanimating and then failing morale so narratively speaking she scared them away.
Chef, very good tactics with the sisters but just terrible rolling and a poor choice of secondaries unfortunately. Both the final melta on the Leviathan and the exorcist shot at Abbadon had me at the edge of my seat.
