Hey guys,
I’m a little confused around the Flesh Tearers attacks. Do all the bonuses they get stack with Shock Assault (Fury Within, Black Rage, Savage Echoes) as they are all worded the same?
So for example Death Company, on the charge, during assault doctrine will get +4 attacks?
I’m presuming thats wrong and if so, how do I know which ones cancel which out?

Great batrep guys. Love the Flesh Tearers! At the last GT I went too every BA army had 2 relic contemptors with twin volkite. Nearly every space Marine army had 2 as well or at least one. Pretty hard to beat for the points.

Interesting chat about charges. I always thought it should be your movement stat +D6 but hey…

Great game. Games between you two are always enjoyable to watch the swing go back and forth between you! 😀 MORE SOOOON!

When that unit at around 44:33 was shot by the Harlequin unit that causes a leadership compare or take D3 mortal wounds, could you not use the Leadership characteristic or your Chaplain if it was around?

Fixed charges would be fine…if shooting also had ranges reduced so you’re not shooting across the entire table for most of the armies in the game.
Otherwise getting anything into melee with a fixed short range charge isn’t happening.

Wrapping and trapping a transport to kill everyone inside? Yeah, there isn’t a rule in the game I loathe more.
Especially on open-topped, flying transport full of melee focused, acrobatic harlequins. It just doesn’t make sense to me.

Funny thing is I had to stop playing harlequins after this happened to me even in casual matches, I just got too salty to enjoy the game. Since then I’ve noticed I tend to avoid all transports in my lists just to not have that happen to me again 😂

Hammer of Wrath is EQUAL or greater to the enemies toughness. It absolutely murders harlies. As for ranged shooting, I have been having a lot of joy from 10 assault plasma hellblasters, usually but not always combat squaded in 5s. I am running Scars though so they can actually keep up with the jump pack captain. Someone else also suggested suppressors and they are genuinely good now – I am really enjoying running them as 3 squads of back field holders, the massive range on their guns is great.

What about replacing those inceptors with 3 units of suppressors ? If longer range shooting is what you need… not the best shooting, but not terrible and still blood angel infantry..

Blood angels / flesh tearers are just really bad… They’ve been sitting on 26-32% competitive win-rate which is the worst out of ANY codex … Even worse than GCS/AM/Tau ect… It’s a horrible 9th edition codex unfortunately.

Anyway, well played game – i feel chef should have won this by turn 3. It was a severe whiff in that turn.

Gotta love the league:)

You’re not wrong that BA’s major weakness is long ranged support. It’s difficult to come up with a definitive response looking at the current options. I am thinking about trying to include some pistol weapons to chip off a few wounds but it seems like you either go for the obvious options or try something more janky. One thing I am looking at is devastators and vetran squads. Both are core and offer different benefits. The veterans give you bodyguard on a chapter master that can give them a reroll on the hit roll. Devastators have the cherub and the… Read more »

Oh yeah, that’s the stuff! Loving the Flesh Tearers. So beautifully built and painted, looks amazing. I’m a Vylka Fenryka guy, but seeing as though they’ve completely disappeared into the warp, I’ll take whatever Astartes ripping and tearing I can get. Though I patiently await the return of the Rout in force to the channel. Keep it up, gents 🤙

Hi Lawrence obviously take what I say with a massive pinch of salt. But have you thought about switching the inceptors for some suppressors. If you dropped the inceptors and maybe some upgrades you could take three units which actually a decent amount of dakka. You could even keep one in reserve to drop down to get engage and do the data action. I think you could even spend 1cp to still be able to shoot with them too. Hi Chef i have an equally terrible take i think psycic ritual might have been a mistake as honestly that shadow… Read more »

In 5ed the charges were 6 inches, from the 6ed they became random, btw in 5 you couldn’t measure nothing, so if you declared a charge/shoot with a weapons and you were out of range you lost the charge/ shooting with that unit. Btw 5ed is so far the best editions I’ve ever play.
PS I’m 29 and play since 4ed.

Lawrence From a blood angels fire support point of view I really like redemptors and attack bikes both work well for anti Tank Plasma Inceptors are just too pricey to include especially 5 of them.

Spider you’re 100% right about the long range firepower. BA don’t trade efficiently with long range d3+ (or any long range) weapons compared to other SM chapters, and especially compared to other factions such as DE or Admech. No ba strats, secondaries, abilities, relics, or chapter tactics lend to it. What I’ve found is you’re either a poor man’s shooty space Marine army with a couple msu SG, or you’re a melee army that doesn’t have tools or units to trade efficiently on objectives. The book is codex Sang Guard, and they’re rapidly falling off in their ability to carry… Read more »

Oh man, Harlequins are just so inconsistent it is painful. Okay, you have a bucket of melta pistols, but no rerolls means that it either performs admirably or 15 meltas just kills 2-3 marines a turn. So to sum it up, 4++ army-wide invuln is just a coin flip, fusion pistol troupe has less than 50% chance to kill a marine, but theoretically can destroy a knight in a turn, nearly everything is a coinflip, just a Laughing God/Tzeentch intended.

Guys, what is this? Don’t you know that Competitve play is antithetical with friendship and enjoyment? For shame!
In other words, I really loved this game to bits. The humor and the levity you put in there while still playing as best as you could was awesome, and something I would like to strive for in every match I will play. Also, every time I see Lawrence Tearers I am in awe, they are stunning.
