Man that was a tense game! Amazing playing by chef at the end; you did the XVth proud!
Why use obscuring terrain if you can smite thru first floor windows @Chef?
At the end of the game when Morty could herocial interven Magnus and may pile in upwards (to the mission point), killing Magnus and consolidat to the Tzangor but parallel to the Mission point … so beard could point in his turn and win the game ?
I’m wrong ?
I just want to see, AT LEAST, the 4 Daemon Primarchs of Chaos. so now all Geedubs needs to do is put out an Angron and Fulgrim daemon model and we’ll be perfect! then Lorgar and Perturabo can come out later.
Great game guys. Can anyone on here answer a couple thousand sons question’s for me? Off to the LGT soon and would rather be sure of my rules before going The stratagem unwavering phalanx reduces the damage characteristic by 1 for incoming attacks to the affected unit. My question is so a damage 2 weapon it becomes a damage 1 weapon and therefor do you get the benefits of all is dust? I question this as it is written that the damage of the attack is reduced not the wounds taken is reduced. Also stratagems aside if a weapon is… Read more »
A league match and it’s 2 hours long. Man am I excited!!!
Man, great game…and also…great app!
So many great moments. Fantastic game gentlemen. Hat’s off to the both of you. Thank you.
As a father of a 2 year old, I really appreciated the octonauts reference 🙂
Great game guys loving the league Reports please keep them up love seeing the competitive side of the game 🙂 Now we need some Grey Knight action Spider 😉
What an absolute NAIL biter.
Just as planned of course. >_>
Cracking game folks
Good ish gents
League game!!!!! Whuhuuuuuu
Wow! Nice game guys! Thanks!
Great game I really enjoyed that!
Very strange question here but would you be able to tell me the colours you used for the large red and blue(ish) ruins? I’ve recently bought the same ruins and really like the way these are painted.
Great game. I think DG still have the edge overall but I’d rather use T Sons any day of the week.
What a game chaps, very much enjoyed, thanks.
Such a happy and cheerful game!
Was this a friday game?
Much as I hate to see Chaos fighting Chaos when they should be fighting the Long War, I enjoyed this one immensely. Thanks lads!
Classic matchup! Too many books versus too many beans!
Been looking forward to this game since I saw it on facebook. Such a great game!
This was awesome guys! Always love these Primarch games. Thousand Sons look like a lot of fun, I’m looking forward to watching more of them.
Good game, guys! 👌🏻
Beard DG & Chef TS make for a fantastic game – really enjoyed it.
I hope you play some more Thousand sons games! They are a great army, I’ve been enjoying them quite a bit. It takes quite a few games to start to really get the hang of it, that’s for sure.
Yeeeah ! Great batrep, but the highlight was still Beard citing the Octonauts.
As for the best Primarch, I guess we will need to put Bobby G in the ring. It’s been a while since we have seen Bobby & Tiggy on the show.
Have a good one !
I loved the 1K sons list, I’ve been toying around with a 3 Cult list of Duplicity/Scheming/Change all patrols
The duplicity is for objective snagging and shenanigans, while I take advantage of the Warlord trait of Scheming to run a 10 man of SoT, and the cult of change seems to have good specialty things all around, and can really increase the survivability of your guys in combat by removing 1 attack characteristic from whoever they are fighting.
Hexfire sold out so stupidly quickly im not convinced they actually made the box. I was never able to add it to the cart within Australia when it came online.
One of the best – and close! – games in a long time 😀 Really enjoyd it 🙂
What a great game. I don’t think Magnus will be competitive at 450 points due to the fact that any kind of real AT in a list will melt him. They should have gave him the only 3++. If they drop him to like 400, maybe, but right now he just takes up to many points. Chef you should try the hellbrutes. With the 5++ they and -1D they are pretty surviviable (well if you manage to make a 5++ lol). I like them with LC and Scourge. Also you need to get the rubrics with flamers cause they are… Read more »
Great game. Good to see my dusty boys in good shape. What do you think about a battle-phsyker in Terminator Armour with the stave of abominus? If he is swelled by the warp he pumps out 12 S9 attacks, AP -1, damage 1, hitting on 2s. With a combi-melta he costs 120 points. Better than a kick in the teeth.
I’ve been playing Thousand Sons recently trying to wrap my head around the new book. So far my takeaway has been really positive! @Chef: I’m sure you’ve seen others talking about it online, but if you’re going to try a 10 man squad in Thousand Sons it should absolutely be a 10 man squad of Scarab Occult Terminators IMO. When paired with an Infernal Master for the +1 strength to ranged weapons pact and the “Wrath of the Wronged” stratagem, they re capable of INCREDIBLE damage. Wounding T8 on a 4+ with your 38 inferno combi bolter shots is just… Read more »
That was an absolute belter of a league game, really enjoyed watching it. Beard and Chef on fine form as usual presenting! Thousand Sons look really interesting now, Magnus as well seems like a bit of a beast and not too op which is always nice. Some great changes to the army though and nice to see them give Death Guard a close game despite Chefs best attempts to kill it with his rolling..
I don’t know if you have got one now but I have got the hexfire set however I don’t play thousand sons so I would a happy to donate the Infernal Master and the rest of sons if you would like them
this was great, what a ride! was brilliant to see these two armies face off. i also can’t help but enjoy me some Chef and Beard action. Also, Chef, those rolls Chef! what did you do to displease the dice god?
Nice to see the two Demon Primarchs! Seeing them on the field is as always impressive. I am a little conflicted about having other Primarchs in the game, I would like to have a bunch of them both as demon and as returning imperial ones, but the fine line between useless and too strong is always risky. I don’t know if TS are balanced or not, I don’t know nearly enogh about them so I’ll wait and see how they’ll perform in the next tournments. Still, I am not a fan of those MW deluges in the psychic phase (or… Read more »
Here we go! Who is the best?
Hearing Chef saying “Jaghatai” is somehow more confusing than Stig saying “three”
Wonderful magic show!😁. Who said that you can’t have fun in a competitive game?🤔 You two seemed to had more then plenty. Great video. Keep it up!
Awww man. You still should have played that last turn out so there was a fight with Morty and Magnus.
Don’t think there is anything in the rules this edition that requires thousand sons players to measure from the sorcerer in squads of Rubricae?
Just something in core rules about “units of psykers” and selecting “a” model.
If there is, grateful to understand!
oooh this is going to be good. For something I’d like to see, i know you aren’t a fan chef, but i’ve been enjoying a cheeky bit of hero hammer with having ahriman, an exalted sorcerer, exalted master, and 2 terminator sorcerer thralls Instead of magnus, i actually think a couple of rhinos and a big blob of cultists is nothing to be sniffed at either.
There are so many opportunities with this new book, they just aren’t quite where you would expect to look for them…
Beard: “I’ll use my last CP…”
Sidebar tracking CP: Beard is not in negative CP
Me: What is this madness???
If you’re after Hexfire, hit up Holmfirth Gaming Centre. They have a bunch!
Been looking forward to this one I have a feeling the mortal wound spam is going to be too much for nurgles Bois, but I will hope for a different outcome :p
Yessssss! MORTY VS MAGGY! I have been waiting for this for weeks. And I can’t wait to see what list you used for the new Thousand Sons. Thank uou very much guys.
Now that is a dramatic match up!
