I’m sure it’s been pointed out already, but I was surprised when the graphic said ‘Blood Angels Summary’ at 1:40:42!
Great report though and a lot of fun! Congrats to Beard on joining full time!

Wouldn’t you just keep the raptor in reserve? I know it’s a lot for reserve but, wouldn’t it guarantee it’s impact?

Welcome back Beard! Do you guys think you will do a Good/Bad/Ugly for all the forgeworld updates? Be interesting to hear your thoughts, although i guess that would be a long episode with so many units.

I thought that not all of the Iron Warriors units get to do the ignore cover thing. Was this changed? Do Monsters and Vehicles get them now?

Very much looking forward to a tactica with the Space Wolves, I winced when that Fire Raptor died instantly. To think what those 400 points could have been spent on! Good to see the FW stuff, I think I may have to bring my Sicaran out of storage!

Enjoyable game, thanks guys!

Beard, how do you feel about all the FW dreads losing the Helbrute keyword (and thus our legion trait)?

BABAB!!! Beard and Bone are Bosses!!!
Great battle boys, and the space wolves look fantastic!
But like you said it wasn’t a very optimized list for te wolves, but Bjorn and murderfang, OOOOOh boy are dreadnoughts are back in a big way!
Sad that the gunship didn’t get to shoot once, would have been impressive 😀

Thanks Beard and Bone for another fun and attention grabbing batrep! Bone, have you ever considered (though I get it’d take awhile to get the models) a Space Wolves all Dreadnought list? I am working on one myself. So far I have Bjorn, a Chaplain Ven. Dread, a Redemptor, two Wulfen Dreads, three Ven. Dreads and Murderfang. All I need to finish my list is one more Wulfen Dread., another two Redemptors and a normal Dreadnought. It’ll be 1,993 points when done. Anyways, with dreads as good as they are in ninth please bring more. Thanks again guys!

Thanks Fletcher for binging Bone’s army back. It was a shame though that a 400 point model was in a list that is meant to show off the new supplement. More units could have been used to show off the supplement if the fire raptor wasn’t in the list.
But overall great job in getting the video out even though you got the supplement late and congrats to Beard for coming on full time.

As much as I love seeing your antics how did you guys decide this would be a good way to showcase Space Wolves? Took a 400pt flyer and then deploying your Thunderwolves out in the open against Beard’s list which was a complete counter to Space Wolves… The game was over in deployment.

I just recently resubbed after being away for a few months, and I have to say you guys really stepped up your cinematography. Those opening shots were beautiful!

I love Fletchers army hugely (so pretty.) It is a shame that fire-raptor didn’t get to do anything, 1) because it has lots of guns and 2) it is such a pain in the backside to build – so naughty Beard, Very naughty 😉

Fun video guys! That was a pretty brutal first round of shooting from the Iron Warriors. I would definitely like to see a Tactica for the new Space Wolves supplement, but overall I thought this match showed some key points that SW can be great at. Thanks guys!

I do have a question, is Saga of the Beast now obsolete? I haven’t heard anyone address that yet, and it is a relatively new book at that.

I don’t think you have any painted up but would be good to see what a couple of squads of assault intercessors and maybe some bladeguard in impulsors could do as space wolves

second fun fact for the day: a group of iron warrior dreadnaughts is called a beard or dreadnaughts.

fun fact for the day a group of ducks can be either a raft, a team, or a paddling of ducks. so we are in fact a paddling of lucky ducks.

Bone would of had that game if it weren’t for that silly flyer.
Have 2 x 5 squads of TWC instead. Throw some Eradicators in there as well.
Great game, love the Beard and Bone combo as always.

Important baddalion question. Instead of it being dual baddalions like in 8th, would you call this a baddalion duel?

Murderfang should have survived on one wound I think? As he’s a dreadnought I’m pretty sure he gets duty eternal as well
Great game either way!

Welcome full time Beard!
Sorry to hear about new codex delays. If only there was some kind of digital version we could all pay to download, and circumvent physical supply-chain issues…
I don’t mean to be so salty, but I’ve literally had an email back from GW saying they can’t comment on when (or if) digital versions of the core book and codexes will be made available. I got through the whole of 8th Ed without buying a physical book…

Please bring back more Tacticas going through list ideas. Interested to see some competitive Space Wolves lists.

If it’s any other combination of hosts, I usually only watch if I like the armies being played. But I watch any episode by Beard and Bone just for the entertainment value.

Props to Bone for fulfilling the saga of the Fire Raptor. Many laments of its lack of deeds will surely be sung.

Bone threw the game to welcome Beard to the team full time. GOOD SPORT BONE! Way to be the bigger man, Beard is so blood thirsty and ruthless… Somebody has to be the adult.

Wow that space wolves flyer thing is beautiful but pretty useless 80% of the time, like most expensive flyers. Given you can’t hide them I’m thinking maybe Aircraft should get a free tactical reserve rule to make them survivable if you don’t go first. Wouldn’t apply to flyers/hover vehicles though. Makes sense too as a strike fighter doesn’t start over a battlefield target. It’d coming roaring in from its airfield or from a patrol pattern it’s flying.

Congrats to Chaos Lord Beard!
And great game. I was very afraid after Beard’s first turn, but there were some epic moments after that.
On a sidenote, I want a Space Ducks Codex.
With a 450 points Fire Duck model.

Just at the start of the video but wanted to say congrats on joining full time beard. It’s awesome to see you join the team and see table top tactics do well with the pandemic going on. Looking forward to seeing more of you.

Also happy to see the space wolves back. Maybe just keep “forgetting” to return them again

Question for El Beardo: Why take the Chaos Lord with the Obliterators instead of a Master of Possession with Cursed Earth and Infernal Power with them? You still can take Daemonsmith and you can reroll hit AND wound rolls of 1.
Always a pleasure to watch those bat reps!
