Very interesting report + nice match but i think the very best of the report is that you’re back to 3 guys at the table.
So much better when one can fully concentrate on the camera work!

Beard seemed pretty shell-shocked by the Ad Mech re-roll onslaught! This is what happens when you don’t bring Heidegger…

Those Arc rifles are great vehicle busters, don’t forget they are Dmg 3 against them too! For the amount of rules in that admech codex, you did a great job stig staying on top of it though. Well played gents.

Welcome back, Stig! Great to see you back at the table. I really enjoyed the chaos of this match. Two new books, three dudes fumbling through rules, Beard’s abysmal rolls😢, and the subsequent frustration and sass from Chef in post production🤣. Love you guys. Never change.

Ahhhhhhhhhh… absolutely loved that. So many great points. Welcome back Stig! Masterful editing by Mr Chef. Beard’s reroll high dudgeon. Very emotional with Spider coming in to film, and the handshake at the end. A smashing game as well, but it shows how much this channel is about much more than just the game. I’m really late finishing this and commenting so I’m not sure if any of you TT lads will see this, but thank you. I mean it. The quality of the output during all this terrible bullshit really has been incredible, from the Spider and Bone prison… Read more »

Great to see the Stig back on the Channel! Awesome game as well, debuting two new codices! I’m really looking forward to browse through the Sisters codex myself. There’s some things I’ve seen so far that I’ll miss (Deadly Descent and Advance+Charge), but other things look really nice now. Some of the nerfs/changes seem rather weird, but overall I’m excited about the new book. Got a game planned myself against Ad Mech on Sunday, let’s see if I can be more fortunate than mister Beard was! Also, the editing was totally on point again.

Great board guys, it worked well to make more of a tactical game. Nice to see the spider. Poor chef, love the cut to him shaking his head, hey it’s new codexes you guys are doing great.

So many re rolls and little buffs on both sides, I do hope orks get some serious love as this Mechanicum army are like death skulls but much better.

Are Immolators not 10W? They are in the old book as they are a rhino chassis? At 90.50 one takes 2 damage from and arc rifle and Beard says down to 9 wounds?
Or is there a -1 damage feature in play I missed?

Well done! Very happy to see Stig come back from the exile imposed by Nurgle. I have been waiting for an Admech game for a while now! I feel like they are a decent codex with a couple of good combos, most units looking usable, and fairly well internally balanced at first blush. Some folks have been whining online about them being needlessly complicated, but I rather enjoy the different aspects of Skitarii and Cult Mechanicus woven together. If there ever was a faction that would have eclectic and somewhat convoluted rules, Admech is certainly one of the most likely… Read more »

Watching this battle in multiple sittings, so I might’ve missed something. But man, these two codices do kind of show how important it is to have acces to rerolls. Originally with the new core rules of 9th it seemed endless rerolls were over, but actually that is not the case. Sure, HQ’s have a bit of a harder time of it, but for some armies it seems very easy to get acces to rerolls for many units, for example, because almost everything is core anyway, or because they have crazy dogma’s and/or other special rules. Also, D3+3 is really powerful.… Read more »

@Stig. Arc rifles are dmg 3 against vehicles aswell as wounding on 4+. 😁
Love your list. Beware the mighty chickens! 😄

I absolutely love how passive aggressive Chefs editing is, I find myself waiting for the popups or showing his reactions at the desk!
One thing I will say however it the mic rustling is making it very hard to watch at times, I know there is nothing that can be done via editing, but thought I would share my thoughts <3

Beard, I personally haven’t had a chance to look at the new Sister’s codex. How do the Sepheram/Zepheram squads appear to be lining up?

Chef channeling his ‘Graham Norton at the Eurovision rule fail commentary’ with hilarious dryness. Those Mech rerolls are pure madness though. Great report.

Now I understand why Chef chose his villainous ways. If this was inflicted upon me I would also take glee in crushing the spirits of my opponents on the table top. Crush them Chef! It is what’s best in life. 😉

1:38:35 You see Mr. Beard, the game wants you to finally learn not to put your characters (specially the warlords) alone onto the transport. Have you forgotten how miserably your Iron Hands chainlord died few years ago? 😂😒

Wow! What a slobber knocker. Celestine is a beast if beard could’ve rolled better. She’s going to be a busy saint as she appears all across every Sisters Army as an auto include!

Stig :Your opponent literally gets no interaction with those flaming flapper boys (as Winters SEO says) are you going to make thing bigger unit and auto include too?

Golly what a game, well done to both players!!! Both new codices look amazing!
Also, Mr. Chef, your editing is soo funny, keep up the awesome work!

Anyone else notice that armies with new models get lower power across the board, except for the new models so that the new models are the best thing in the codex(necrons, sisters). But armies without new model kits get massive power buffs across the board (ad mech, dark eldar.)
Kind of like the goal isn’t balance but to use imbalance to sell the kits they want to sell the most.

Great game guys! Also its nice to see the 3 man batreps return. Having the extra person gives it a bit more personality. As well as makes it much easier to film/play for the players. As always keep up the good work!

Great battle! I think both of the new books are great, especially the Ad-Mech.
While I really like that Ebon Chalice MW on flamer stratagem, I would be interested to see a list run with the new Argent Shroud rules too!

So happy to have the Stig back! And what a great game, but in regards to the Spider’s sudden appearance (which is great, can’t wait for more three man bat reps) – can it be considered a dramatic wrestling entrance if he doesn’t crush a can of Chaos Black spray on his forehead first? 😛

Love the match, but im curious because i thought Kataphrons kept their Obsec for being Troops but they cant do actions because they are bikes. That would mean at the that the Sisters wouldnt keep that Objective unless they had more models?

Chef, do you make them watch these videos back afterwards and do play by plays on how much they mess up? Like some tired old football coach?
Also, I must say, I love the fourth wall breaks. They are masterful.
