At the risk of having another J nickname, I vote for calling James “The Jester”.

If “Oh James” was a drinking game, I would have passed out long before this game ended. πŸ˜€

Love seeing the highlights of the move phase with the explanations. Good to see the scions out for a slapping. Getting a win with those rolls though – oof. That turn one opener was a demonstration of why deployment matters for sure πŸ™‚

Good game – nice to see the Guard mashing some Bugs for a change! To be honest, I didn’t really enjoy seeing the movement phase, as I felt it really slowed the report down – I much prefer just having a summary of the movement.

This was a very fun game. I love the chemistry between all 3 presenters! It is also great to see an 8th ed army vs 8th ed army πŸ™‚

Fresh back from a tournament where I lost to guard in the last round, that spectacular perils about 35mins in was a very cathartic moment for me (sorry James) – honestly Katie vs James with Chef on the camera is a glorious combo!

Thanks God for your Dice Tray, all you have to do is zoom in and fade it in and out as necessary. Viva la resistance!

well, really nice BatRep….but one thing I wonder for quite some time now: Where did Jinx loose her way of rolling the dice??

I love how avuncular Chef become when he is with James and Katie… an grumpy old uncle with his nephews! frankly he reminds me of myself.
Nice game, and as always a lovely mood in there. A great way to end this week!

We didn’t settle on a nickname yet for James, I thought πŸ€” it was “the duce” from the last game?

I am referring to the game Chef and James played.

It’s For Your Own Good: If this model is slain as a result of Perils of the Warp whilst within 6″ of a friendly COMMISSAR, they are executed before anything untoward can happen – the power they were attempting still fails, but units within 6″ of them do not suffer D3 mortal wounds as normal.
This is only for a Primaris Psyker James had a Astropath am i missing somthing else
