Beautiful armies, excellent paint job, but this batrep feel like one way play. Tau need every turn to be perfect, just to stay on the table, and kill two dreads or 10 marines with whole army. Spider can leave sanguinary guard in deep strike and still win the game. But at least someone tries to continue Bone legacy and one day purple toga will rise again!

Fletcher, sir, I call your bluff. You can’t be that good a painter AND that nice of an opponent. You are not real.

Oh boy! T’au vs. Flesh Tearers. This might be interesting!
The armies are beautiful, the players are fun…
Sees The Scouring as the mission
Well at least it looked pretty.
The T’au have a horrible time with that mission, being the only army in the game without objective flipping ability, really. Good game and well played, but it’s a shame that The Scouring shows its ugly face once again.

Always a joy to see my Flesh Tearers cousins on the field of battle!

Seal clubbing season started early this year? O,o

Brave cow-fish-people.

Still nice to see two armies painted like that on one battlefield.

Absolutely brilliant game. Loved it. Gutted there was no funny bloopers at the end! But did make me laugh reading, ‘text is now editable, double click to edit, uncheck before rendering’. I did try and double click it, but all I did was pause and start the video again ^.^

Can I humbly ask what technique Fletcher used to accomplish that sweet colour fade on the reds? It cannot be glazing can it😱? Did he use artist ink? Thank you! Edt. Did he brighten up brown to red or darken red to brown?

The next time someone asks me why I play Warhammer I’m going to show them this Battle Report and be like “See all these cool sound effects I can imagine my models having?” Thank you for this amazing bat rep lol <3

Poor Tau, their time will come (maybe in one month). Love the targetting symbols on the overhead view, helps me understand a game I’m mostly listening to while I paint. Thanks for the batrep

Wisdom of the Ancients is in the command phase every time you keep activating in the shooting phase your total being like that’s just not right

Nice to see the Spider again and against Fletcher, the best – and slowest – painter in the world!

Great editing Chef and camera work Beard – always had a great feeling of being part of the battle, got to see clearly the key dice rolls and the camera work / overhead targeting symbols made it really easy and fun to follow. Top work.

Wow I love the painting on both armies! Well done Fletcher! It is really good to see you on the channel!
Also really nice to see Spider again. Feels like it has been forever.

Oof I had a bad feeling as soon as I saw the swathes of LOS blocking and dense terrain. Poor Tau are just in a horrific state and it’s unconscionable that gw knowingly left them like this for so long.

Can anyone tell me why grenades get the additional pip of AP in the Devastator Doctrine when it’s virtually impossible to be in range of a 6″ throw? Surely they should be activated in the assault doctrine when you’re up close and personal with xenos scum?

Really nice game, it’s always great when Lawrence is on the screen! The Tearers were quite brutal in melee, but frankly they need quite a lot of help at the moment. Maybe this is an unpopular notion, but I am firmly convinced that all the marines were left way behind by creep of the following codices (only by piling dreadnaughts they can manage) and irritatingly already need a good revamp… but Blood Angels and Flesh Tearers are definitely between the chapters that need some serious buffs the most.

Did anyone count how many times Lawrence said “Know what I mean?”

Great game and two beautifully painted armies! 😍

Just a mild kit bash on those puppies dude. It was indeed a Furioso and a Venerable kit 🙂

Fletcher-“Hey I finished that librarian dreadnaught. Want me to bring it over?”

Lawrence-“Yes. And bring your Tau, the Flesh Tearers are hungry”

Should be a fun match, friends!
