Absolutely superb. Super high quality. I would say my preference is for the longer format, but you cannot knock the professional quality of that. 10/10. I do appreciate it takes 3 fellas however, and I bet 5 times longer to edit but it was a work of art. Well done.

Classic format is still my favorite but I’m really digging this format.

Really enjoyed this format and agree with other posters, a third person filming really helps. Gotta say you guys are the only warhammer content creators I know who are genuinely funny, keep up the good work.

Hey guys, really enjoyed this – the highlight reports are certainly my favourites. I did find the sudden switch from “Beard may have a chance” to “I concede” jarring though; it felt like we were right in the action and then the brakes suddenly slammed on, and the video ended 30s later. Totally appreciate that you don’t want to play out an unwinnable scenario, but it felt weird.

That battle report was absolutely amazing. I think it really makes a difference having a third person back filming – it frees the guys up to focus on their strategy, dice wrangling, and repartee. I do hope this is a sign of things to come and you’ve found a way to make this work for the bigger batreps too. The editing was absolutely top notch as well – really appreciated the cutting between the top-down shots (for clarity), the low angle shots (for atmosphere) and the Bone/Beard shots (for… eye candy?). Hats off to Lawrence too for the sheer number… Read more »

Great battle + nice to see that its again possible for you to have a 3rd guy around for doing the camera work! In the first moments i really was confused by the different viewing. What a crazy year.
I always enjoy to see the iron warriors on the battlefield – even if they’re unlucky. It was so close! But seeing Bone win is also good (specially after Beards 1st turn which was horrific).

Love three of you in the same room at the same time, but not the highlight report so much. Love the banter and because its so rapid fire we miss it.

When you can (COVID allowing) please do a two on two with all of you, with interludes between turns where you talk strategy. Beard and Bone vs Chef and Spider.

I don’t know what it is about these highlight reports but they make me miss playing even more than usual, maybe it’s seeing both players talking to each other. Damn this pandemic! 🙂

Beard just forgot his Psychic Phase un the Last turn? Or he just failed to cast any power and you skipped that?

By The Way, Dour Duty just do the oppose of what Beard said. IT reduces the AP by 1 to an IW unit for All the phase.

Anyway good and fast batrep. Keep it like that

I like it when there’s a third person ‘narrating’. Cool report!
Btw: two absolutely gorgeous armies. (the most beautiful one in my opinion are the Albion Raptors!)

Alright, that’s the format. The chosen one. The one to rule them all. 3-man format is hands down the best. I swear I could hear Spyder’s voice sometime. But I’m not sure if it was him, or one of the Chaos daemon that Beard has mentioned. Henry was it ? Jokes apart, I’d be curious to get your opinion on 1500 points game. With the way 40K units are currently pointed, cost wise, it sounds like a sweet spot. Reason being : Army size. Less models overall, thus less time taken with deployment. More room in your deployment zone to… Read more »

Great format. We have been in and out of lockdown so long now, I forgot how good the banter is when there are more people in the room. One day, dare I say, we may see a 2 v 2 game again.

I like this report format, although I do have a bit of a question, even if it is more a bit more behind the scenes. It seems like it would be a good way to role in some coaching too, because Lawrence and the players can more concentrate upon the actual game being played rather than camera angles, remembering to take overhead shots, etc. Is that something that occurs even if the camera doesn’t necessarily record it?

Bone’s tash is back? Maybe I’ve watched too many reports back to back. Could be a problem!

Love the shows, the highlight of White Dwarf for me used to be the battle reports and you guys have got it nailed. Thank you 🤟

I see IF Vs. IW and my brain runs to:
IF:”You smell of dirt and entitlement”
IW:”I am very bitter and you are the reason”
IF:”I don’t care”

Great work. Highlight Reports got realy bumpt up alot with your new kind of work. I also would enjoy some of these things in normal reports too, like an active movement phase. Granted, we see everything in the top down view and get a short description, but we somehow miss out some realy nice banter. Nice work guys, a realy enjoy your team growing, your skills growing and overall your quality growing!
Keep on going!

Why didn’t Beard just take a Spearhead Detachment? All he brings perfectly fits into one: 2 HQs, 3 Troops, 4 Heavy Support and 3 Transports. Am I missing something? Awesome battle report but that confused me a bit.

I would really like to see some 500 point games not because it would be quicker necessarily. I think it would open up some strategic conumdrums, it would also be really interesting what you guys would take in your lists in such games.

Hey guys, another great game. Loving the format – love all the formats, tactica, crusade ect. ect.
My only request is to see a list of 6 rhinos and 60 berserkers one day.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone at the channel. I love everything you guys are doing and I can’t say how much it means to me to see you guys enjoying yourselves. Even if its just for a couple hours a week I can forget that there’s anything wrong with the world when I’m watching the reports.

Was a fan of plasma inceptors in 8th and they got better in 9th – I’m nowhere near a competitive player or up on the meta but are they getting a run these days?
Also, love a highlight report. You see just how much of a pest a Bone is as he doesn’t have to hold a camera. Love it!

Brilliant match, as beautiful as you guys are, I much prefer the old style though where you had more focus on the models and the terrain rather than the players.

Having Lawrence’s voice just emanating from the camera as it switches view made him seem like a less ominous Shodan! Has he transcended to AI form, such is his 40k power?

I feel like we have a little “Blade of Power” situation going on.The word nappy comes with some negative racial connotations. Being frequently followed by the word dread makes it really easy to misunderstand what is being said, especially here in the US. I have had to explain it to more than a couple people aren’t regular watchers of the program.

Highlight reports are the best reports. Camera work and editing make it. It will be my eternal duty to ensure I watch and comment on every single one until this filming approach is explored for other formats.

You know what, the 3 person format is still the best. Hands down. The players can concentrate on that, and the witty(?) banter… really enjoy the more relaxed feel of the highlight reports.

Bone, I thank you for your service to all space marine players with your use of Eradicators.Thanks to you their reputation as “OP” or “to cheap” is long gone.

Amazing show guys, kept the tension to the end!
As a fists player i cannot recommend plasma on Redemptors enough, they are really good, I would also go as far as saying that heavy plasma hellblasters looks pretty great too.

Just wanted to comment that I liked this new format, seeing a bit more of the “behind the scenes” was enjoyable and having a one of you act as a cameraman (and maybe help catch some errors) is a boon for the guys that are playing.

Good game guys. The format is perfect now, love it with the third person on the camera!
Ond questions though. When is B-bone getting his Lamenters army? With his luck he should be chapter master of the Lamenters. With Beard being his second in command 😉

Great game, much better editing than the last highlight…you guys are doing great lately! But i honestly miss the point of view camera when the players were holding the camera themselves (no offence Lawrence, we still love you!)… i like seeing the opponent across the table, makes it feel like we’re playing them ourselves! Plus its nice to see the models more up close.
