Really loved this format with the third person behind the camera being a silent witness (apart from occasional belly laughs). It let Chef & Jinx shine. Great game. The Thousand Sons are really doing well after the changes with the cabal dice. Well played both

This was a great game. Perfect example as to why you don’t just give up if the first few turns don’t go well.

So after a long absence I have finally got time to sit down and watch battle reports again. Why is Lawrence so silent in this game? I quite enjoy the banter and engagement that the team has, so it kinda felt strange for the cameraman to not be participating as well.
In any case, great job Katie and Chef.

Pathogenic slime is done at the start of the shooting phase.
For interactions between offensive and defensive strats: typically offensive ones are used “when a unit is selected to shoot” and defensive ones when “the unit is selected as the target”. The defending player knows which strats are used because they have to be declared beforehand.
.
Malevolent Charge is used ‘when the power is manifested’, so before you know how many mortal wounds you do.
.
It was a fun scrap, didn’t think Chef would pull it back!

I’m hoping the Hive guard get nerfed into the floor. They’re bad for the game, similar to end of 8th Imperial fists.

Always happy to see xenos and/ or chaos. The banter between you two is funny.

What a great game !
I think Katie did really well – TS are strong atm and Tyranids are not!
Rolling was good too, but not many mistakes made! Great to see a good player evolve!

Re: the end of game wrap up, Katy why not consider a Malanthrope as a 2nd HQ for the -1 to hit bubble – more protection for your Hive Guard…? You could still have a Broodlord for some combat counter-punch as well as lots more Gaunts.

Bit of an odd question, what happened to the intros with the current standings and a picture of the player? You enjoyed those.

Loved the game – espicially the ending where Chef says “Don’t touch me” – you can see Jinx’s eyes goin “…. nahhh, I’m gonna touch him” 😀

Also, she’s truly a student of the Spider – those 6s to save on the Hive Guard! Passing 50% is a bit much Katy 😀

Good game guys. I was convinced by the end of turn two that this game was over. Chefs rolls were abysmal in the first half, and hive guard mince up Thousand Sons. 3 squads of hive guards might be a bit much, as the list seems to lack a frontline that can hold. But that may just be a problem with Tyranids in general.

Good game guys, lots of ups and downs. But please don’t say math, it’s maths. You’re not Americans. Please speak English 🙂

By the will of Magnus! That was a fun game to watch! Can I ask, why didn’t Laurence speak? I like it when everyone joins in.
