Caught this at the start. Symbiostorm on an exocrine which hasn’t moved would explode on 5’s. The wording on the power doesn’t say unmodified 6’s and exocrines receive a +1 to hit for being stationary

Good battle but I’ll feel Chef pain with CP when you do stratagem that you don’t have CP for basically change the game but really want to see deathwatch do better they got so much going for them as there codex and there so cool plus I’ll hate nids so I want to see them get a good beating lol 😂

chef at 44:26. Would it make you feel any better if I told you that we take great pleasure in your misery?

You’ve got to use positive reinforcement techniques with Beard & Jynx everytime they get the CPs right give them some beer…a little bit of beer goes a long way

Fun game always love the nids and it is nice to see a bit of a mixup in hive fleets. Jinx you are bringing in some great banter and energy that plays off the rest of the cast well. I really enjoy the casting choice Lawrence.

Also that Neurothrope is pretty epic!

My original belief was that Jinx had devoured Bone’s biomass and incorporated his genetic traits with her own. It seemed reasonable. Then he proceeded to post on Instagram, so i wrote that theory off. But now, seeing her making a near flawless imitation of Bone shouting ”This is all very stressful!”… I’m not so sure.

Welcome to the minus CP club Katie 😁 The look of sadness on chef’s face when the allure of membership was too much is priceless.

It’s also nice to see the tradition of naming models in the Tyranid army continues, which for this match up is very relevant because of the hilarious ranty argument Mr Bone and spider had in lockdown before playing deathwatch and nids.

Awesome game! Also, please never stop doing the Chef cut always during mistakes and odd moments. They are comedy gold and make the world a brighter place.

Great bat rep and love the banter and interactions but please, if only for Chef’s sanity, and gameplay, get the command points right lol. That 2pt stratagem that there wasn’t points for killed the warlord, pretty significant event. Whether it changed the outcome or not is up in the air but hate to see a swing like that.

Loved the game and the editing! Small headsup for Katie: if you have 4 or more Zoanthropes you can manifest two powers, so psychic scream away!

Watching 40k’s true good guys eat some Space Marines makes working overtime more bearable! Nom nom for the Hivemind!

What a game. Simply fantastic! Very entertaining, great match up with Beard DW and Jinx Nids! The personalities really take this channel to the next level for me

Yes, tanky Swarmlords are the best Swarmlords. Great and fun video as always. 🙂 Although the bugs deserved to pay extra this game ^^, i think Katie did not need to pay the cp to reroll the perils. The Neurothrope has an aura to let friendly Zoes in 6 reroll 1s on psy tests, which should count also for the Neurothrope himself because he has the Keyword Zoanthrope.

Ah, yes… Beard rolling like Beard, negative count on the CPs, editing room cuts, Chef crying… The world is working as it should today too, I can face the week end with peace of mind!

I’m right there with you beard, I love the blackshields and always give then two weapons just for them to die before doing anything every game
What they should do is let you take a squad of blackshields!
