Late ask here, but the dice bags you all use at your waists are brilliant. Are those the ones from the app shop, or do you use different ones?

What a great game! I loved the Emperors light! All i can think about now though is “The Empras light is coming” by Venga Boys

Great game! Very well played by Chef, not only for playing the Orks for the first time in many moons and doing it kunnin but brutal, but also for throughout the game reminding Dave of his army’s rules and suggesting good tactical moves. Top Class Hosting!

The green horde takes this one, but suffer not the unclean to live. Those two tank shots is what killed you. If that were more consistent, you would have taken a lot more out early on.

I might be wrong but I think the “gun” quote is from 1989 Batman when the joker shoots his own guy. The whole quote “Bob. Gun.” I hope this helps.

Absolutely epic game!!! Chef is making me want to start an Ork army now haha

Great game! Just a heads-up, the link to floorhammer on youtube doesn’t link anywhere. I’m not sure if you can change it or not but thought I’d let you know.

Are you thinking of the part in starship troopers when Rasczak asks for the rifle to shot the trooper in the air??

The original chaos gods numbered but 3, they were first named in the first warhammer role play book and see Khorne, Nurgle and Ma’lal. The other one chef mentioned was actually one of the 3 gods of law (not the nice guys you would think) I am old and as such vaguely remember such things.

Is the give my my gun quote you are talking about “Give me that ******** Shooter” from Snatch?

Great game Dave!
Would be awesome to see Chef take what he learnt here and have a run at competitive Orks in the League!!!

Very cool game, thats how this allways should be. Quite close and not one side dominating the other.
Orks suit you aswell Mr. Chef!

Nice game and nice guest! I would love to see how a competitive Black Templars list would do, they seem quite interesting and I think that Uphold is a really strong vow.
And yes, the Gladiator is as sad and worthless as almost all the other tanks for Marines and Sisters. I am relieved I hold out on buying it, it would have ended gatering dust on my shelf with the RepEx and the Impulsors.

The ‘hand me my gun’ thing is starship troopers when the sergeant guy shoots his own man.
