Stig is such a gentleman, very polite and positive no matter what happens in the game, an Beard is just a human sized happy puppy! Great job guys, and a great game!

That was ABSOLUTELY superb. What a game. Really well done, Beard! that was a helluva comeback, and a lesson to us all. I played a game on Sunday and all looked lost after my poor Aeldari ate huge amounts of T’au fire, then fluffing their charges whilst losing more on overwatch. But came back to squeak a win by two points! Felt a bit sorry for my mate, tbh. Commiserations, Stig! And big thanks to you both.

Nice batrep. Didnt see that twist coming. Like the admech how they are played at the moment. Maybe bot strong but this will even out with the next codex coming.

Quick question. When my manipulus is performing the action to switch to the advanced holy order. Can he still buff one unit with the galvanic field as this is not an aura and does not stop performing actions to fail?

Amazing game well done Mr Beard, well fought victory. I honestly thought Admec had that game.

Thanks again and look forward too watching the next battle/league report.

I know there are cries of outrage at every new codex at the moment, DG and Drukhari were both accused of being OP.
But these Admech seem to be a bit disgusting… and I wondered if you guys thought they are broken or just in need of a small tinker?
It seems they have re rolls on everything at all times and are stupidly complicated…

Another great league game. They are becoming my favorite reports to watch and cannot wait for the coaching series with the spider.
Who is taking over the space wolves now? Would love to see the spider try to make a go of them in a league game.

Gotta say, the plethora of synergies in the AdMech book (and the doggo calvary) have me wanting to start a new army… my poor wallet. Also, fun game to watch, interesting to the end!

Good game, I can’t believe how strong those Skitarii blobs are! Not only are Ad-Mech one of the strongest shooting armies around the number of defensive buffs they can dish out every turn is frankly alarming!
Well played Mr Beard, I was worried for you in turn 2 but you managed to really turn it round!

Stig old pal! Great to see the ad mech out but did you forget the Mars reroll hit? I think you forgot the Mars reroll hit. 😅. Not that it’s needed. Ad mech are too good.

Thank you for the battle report!
It simultaniously sad for Mr. Stig loss and glad Mr. Beard finally break his loosing series in the League.
But then I thought: AdMech is like Orks. They never loose, just collect valuable battle date in any case, so it is win-win situation!

Now that the restrictions are getting a little more relaxed, it would be good to see the lists section return to pre covid status (if you are allowed).

I used to really enjoy the banter aspect of commenting on each others lists.

I love watching the Death Guard in action. Try out a Foul Blightspawn w/Revolting Stench-vats in the Ferryman company and abuse the strat that will extend that aura of never having counted as charging out to 12″ 😛

I watch you guys for the fun but also to learn as much as I can about the game so when I finally get my ork army finished I will have so idea how to play at least competently…I hope, so thanks for the updates throughout the games.

I dont know if you catch it later (im min 25)- but discusting force does AoE mortal wounds on 4+!
Also, poxwalkers can shrug mortal wounds from mutant strain AND spread the sickness:)
Good showing so far with a new army though beard! Let’s go!

Beard, I think all those brave outings with our poor underpowered Iron Warriors really paid off in this game, you looked very at home piloting the Death Guard and it must’ve felt nice having Chaos Marines that could take a bit of a battering

So glad to see Beard really show off his competitive play side! Still the same bubbly character but playing really well against the current top dog army of 40K. And of course Stig did an excellent job with the Ad Mech too, luckily he has a whole lot of proof on the channel that he was playing them before they were the in thing

Great match up, one I was waiting for! My AdMech have become headache inducing… I’m becoming too old to keep all those things in mind. Good job for navigating them so well, Stig! I have to admit that seeing all the broken things going on (especially with Lucius, but not just there) I don’t feel like playing them so they are sitting on my shelves waiting for the nerf just like I did with the Iron Hands at the end of 8th. Really cheers for Mr. Beard, you played well and did not give up… great game from you! I… Read more »

AdMech terrify me. I mean, Drukhari were silly but AdMech are just plain nuts, especially since GW saw fit to give Skitarii even more buffs in their stupid DLC book.

Looking forward to watching this later. It should be a good match up.

I am glad Drukhari are taking a back burner right now too, although they are devastating, getting to grips with a hoard of new rules and units for these armies, I think, is the best way before another match up.

Now I do wonder, will Katie be replacing B Bone and become the Queen of Plagues on top of the Norn Queen?
