It’s a bug hunt as Beard brings out some new units for the Deathwatch, but will Bone and the Hive Mind adapt quick enough to deal with these new foes?!

couple minutes in, I find the constant scorecard pretty distracting. Makes my eyes constantly move to the side of the screen to see if something changed. Just my 2 cents.

Really enjoyed that, thanks very much chaps! Good to see the ‘nids make an appearance. I quite like the idea of them as a third army, but we’ll see what the new codex looks like, whenever the hell that happens. It’ll be a valuable piece of research, testing the age-old question “how much expensively-shaped plastic can I fill our house with, before my wife finally snaps and bludgeons me to death?”.

Right at the end making that wound rolls for hive guard Vs contempor Bone looked like his hands were shaking with excitement! Quite the nail biter! Well played guys!!

Regarding the score card. I prefer it popping in and out. Although it wouldn’t stop me watching the videos either way.

Dont like the scorecard, it doesnt add anything. I preferred it when it pops up when it changes

Really enjoyed this. Recently fell out with 40k to some extent, but this gives me hope that there can be good, exciting, fun games.

I like the score card at the side – I think 9th edition is less immersive in the story of what’s going on (aside from Crusade games), so the score card helps keep me engaged with what’s at stake.

Great game guys! I don’t feel like the permanent scoreboard is necessary, but it didn’t really bother me either. Maybe consider making it a bit smaller if it is going to be permanent, because it does take up a lot of space right now 🙂 Keep up the good work you bosses!

Great battle report beard and bone, i always love to see the Tyranids.

I like the permanent scorecards and i watch on my phone.

@Beard i don’t understand why you have two lieutenants or any. Surely mission tactics with tome of the ecctoclades (sp) is enough​.

@Bone you should squeeze in a lictor for secondaries. Like chef said recently about master artisan being an autotake lictors are so good for deploy scramblers or engage.

Either way with the scorecard banner is fine for me, I’ve gotten used to it but I don’t need it on screen all of the time. Also, I love the new dice trays but I think the rule to reroll dice which land on the board instead of the tray is unnecessary. If the point is to make the dice rolls easier and faster, and you’re having to reroll flat dice that land near the dice tray, is it really an improvement than when you were just rolling on the board?

Hey Beard, is there any chance of seeing a Librarian brought to the Deathwatch? Premorphic Resonance and Fortified With Contempt are FANTASTIC powers for an Indomitor killteam.

Was one of the best Battlereps ever! Really loving this! I would like to see that heavy intercessors soon. Great Job for all of you.

Just a quick thought, would it be worth getting some stock shots of all your different units that chef could then edit in to any video rather than having to remember to do it all before each battle? Figure it’d save you all time in the long run and prevent missing shots in the army lists. Not a gripe or anything, just a thought. 😀 keep up the good work peeps. Oh and sorry to hear bones going, seriously considered applying for the job but it’d be a bell of a commute from North Wales lol

I dont mind the score card being o all the time. However. I watch your videos most of the time while I’m at the boozer via my phone. It does sort of make the screen a fair bit smaller in that regard.

Fantastic games guys. You both had times when I thought you’d clinched the win. I like the score display. It’s not overly obtrusive and it’s good to be able to see the score.

Great batrep as always, Bone and Beard being their usual boss selves!
As far as the counter, I know it’s a trial, but not a fan. It draws on peripheral vision and takes away space to see your gorgeous boards and models, and handsome faces!

Dang what a back and forth battle. Enjoyed this one a lot. In regards to the trial of the score I prefer without it always on but after about half way I didn’t notice it as much. But I watch on a TV most of the time. I’m sure with some tweaks or a see through mini score card in the bottom corner you could please both crowds maybe. Good stuff anyways boys!

Great game! Your Redemptor are so cool, I watch mine (also black) and they look so plain in comparison… I’ll have to work on them again. Also, every single time you play Tyranids I feel the urge to watch Alien+Aliens again. You are ruining my saturday evening!
Regarding the “always there” points counter I don’t dislike it, but I watch all your shows on my desktop and my screen is quite big… maybe the guys watching on tablets or phones can give you a more valuable feedback.
Thank you for the game!

I’m not fussed about the score board to be honest. My question would be how much time it saves just having it constantly there rather than popping in and out?

Regarding the score board: better stay with the current mode of letting it pop out when relevant. I like the fullscreen view on the battlefield more + its coming up often enough.

Beard and Bone – why did the Tyrannofex survive on Turn 2? Beard rolled 15 damage – triple 3 and a 6.

Queue the down votes….constructive criticism can we go back to the scorecard appearing when things change rather than being on screen permanently it really does distract and take up way too much of the screen especially on mobile…understand if you cant or its more popular to keep just though I would ask.
