Great game as always and a blast to watch. I hope Chef gets a bonus for having to edit and provide corrections for the peanuts. He worked overtime on this one lol.

That ended up being quite a game. I sincerely hope that whatever changes end up happening for the T’au when they get their book make the markerlight system less of an albatross around the player’s neck. That’s over and above GW having a good hard look at the rules for, well, a whole raft of T’au units really.

Thoughts about Trooper Terrance being the Sly Marbo of the Raptors?

Maybe a conversion required

The more I see Tau play the more I get annoyed that every other army just has to have the ‘Core’ designation and be within a few inches of their command unit in order to get the bonuses that Tau have to roll multiple hits wasting shots. They should just get the same bonuses and have the markerlights do something else.

Hey Bone, are you leaving for good, or are you gonna be coming back a few times per year? I still can’t cope with a prospect of tragedy of such a scale

This game was a win for everybody who was involved (maybe excepted for the editor 🤗). I’ll really miss this Beard and Bone nonsense.

B Bone vs Beard. Today is a good day to banter – my cuppa is ready, my ploughman’s prepared and the kids locked in my dungeon. Time to relax. Thank you guys!

Is the Wyvern mispronunciation done for the comedic effect?
