The Sky Serpent himself Paulie soars into the Studio, but can the Dark Kin overcome Spider and the Hammers of Titan?!

Send Paulie and the Realspace Raiders some love over on Instagram – @skyserpent40k and @realspaceraiders

When I saw the thumbnail I thought Oh so Lawrence is playing against his alter ego the spider, interesting 😛

My suggestion is release Sanga from the dungeon for maybe a week, film about 4 or 5 league games and then chain him up again, so he can finally get on the league table 😉

I’d love to see the Spider use Talos, as Artist of the flesh with heat lances and Talos ichor injectors. They’re so much fun and with some cronos and Harmonculus help, pretty much don’t die.
The Sky Serpent has such a beautiful army.

Watching this game was massive and actually made me consider some list changes for a big tournament coming up. I do wonder if you have considered a double patrol lawrence. I always seem to get a little annoyed with 1 battalion and like 2 grand master dread knights haha. Is there a chance i could share the list with you for some feedback?

I am so glad Spider is back playing. It has been so long since I have seen Spider field an army on the channel (I may have missed one). Expecially Drukhari, he is the reason I chose them as my first army in 40K!
Hopefully get to see Spider in some BatReps in the coming weeks

Wow what a game!!!
And that dark eldar army is beautiful ! To be honest I thought it was more or less over after that GK alpha strike but well played from the DE!
I just love these league reports.

The Spider projecting Red Dwarf’s Kryton with Smug Mode ON! 😄 Really interesting to watch how those points racked up. Very bloody game. Great to see. Thanks guys.

Hmm. At 1:38:15 you show the Dreadknight hitting the Raider twice… Editor’s cut maybe? Must’ve enjoyed watching it! xD
Excellent showcase of two very competitive factions though. Learned a lot here.

Was that an echo from the warp around 1h36m? Love Paulie#s army. That orange is just chefs-kiss and the parasol is an amazing addition to the raider. The first turn for the Gray Knight though. Utterly, disgustingly brutal, topped only by the Drukhari close combat in turn two. Lots of bloodshed, great game.

Geez Lawrence been watching your games for years and still your rolls continue to impress and horrify me. The demonic pact you must’ve made had to have been significant.

What an amazingly beautiful army you’ve got Paulie ! I absolutely love the orange. And the conversion on the Raider is A+. 👏🏻

Lawrence, it looks to me like K-Dog is in dire need of an upgrade model wise if you’re gonna use him regularly. Just sayin’ 😏🤙🏻📞

Great game but I’m not a fan of the format these days. Been giving it a go for a month or so over various batreps. While it’s great to see the presenters (Lawrence and Paulie in this case), having the camera on them all the time is, to me, turning this into a podcast. We only really see the table in quick overviews post movement phase from one side of the table only, so when someone says “my unit X is smiting your unit Y” I don’t see where they are, who exactly they are targeting, what’s on the table… Read more »

Paulie gave my Sisters a good hammering in the Cov GT last weekend. And I can report that they are even more gorgeous in the flesh

Those Drukhari are gorgeous, fantastic brush work and conversions. I love Grey Knights and watching Spider play them is always educational. I find the 2CP sink on psychic locust too hefty but Lawrence seems to use it every single turn he has CP to burn. It’s interesting…

Really good game – and my 2 favourite armies to boot! Typical Spider blowing the voidraven off turn 1 so we don’t get to see it doing anything!

Would be interested in hearing Spider talk about his Grey Knights tactics in a bit more detail at some point, some of the less obvious stuff – I really struggle with how many and which units to bring down via teleportarium for example

Another awesome BR and a league one !!
On the first round, I didn’t see the Drukhari coming back from all those psyk and shots. It was a tight one, one where great players should be ruthless if they do not want the victory to slip by.

Really enjoyed this and cool to see other Drukhari lists competing 😉

That was a bad ass game, those Drukhari are really really pretty. Dang Lawrence your evidently a nice chap but damn you are ruthless…awesome.

Nice looking armies! The orange scheme for the drukhari was really cool.
Thank you for the game, it was interesting… next week I’ll be at a 40 players tournment and I will use this to think how to play against the inevitable NDK/interceptors lists I will find there (probably the next things GW will have to look at). Let’s hope my Death Guard is resilient enough to grant me a fair chance!

Great game between two beautiful armies. As a longtime RSR podcast fan it was great to see Pauline piloting the Drukhari. Looking forward to Lawrence’s next guest appearance.
Also, I have a sneaking suspicion the NDK and Interceptor glory days may prove to be somewhat short lived if GW actually adheres to their quarterly balance schedule.

Was the Grand Master in Dread Armour allowed to cast loadstone in turn 2? I thought he fell back and wasn’t meant to be casting powers as a result, or did I get that wrong?

The Spiders style of using GK really helped me from the the start of when the psychic awakening came out to the new book. Absolute boss mate !

I wonder if this is with the new points changes? I have had to adjust my drukhari list but it still has kick ass firepower. Back to what it was before 9th. All kabalites.
Any this is going to be a game I watch with avid interest as I love both armies. Let the carnage begin
