Really enjoyed watching it and glad to hear that Lawrence made a change on his director instructions. No “Action” but a “Cut” even if he wasnt allowed (or able) to speak.
Very impressive Mr. Lawrence and person who edited. 😉

Still was big fun to watch this. Guess both of you played well and the start of the Daemons was horrifical strong. A bit sad that Belakor died that fast.
But good job on that kill Chef!

P.S.: really liked to see the Warhipster again!
And some more actions and cuts of course in the end xD

What a cracker of a game. As Warhipster said – this is why you play to the end. That applies to us viewers too – watch to the end!

Hey Chef, have you thought about combining 2 of the 5 man scarab terminators into one unit of 10? That plus 1 to wound is super strong on a fully kitted out unit of scarabs.

Oh noez warhipster, you forgot that Fiends drop psyker casts by 1 if within 12″. A (surprising) number of those powers wouldn’t have gotten off.

A close game till the end. The TS have shooting, psychic and kind of melee too, and even w/o shooting, the deamons are just awesome. Love those games and I hope deamons will get some love when CSM codex is out.

Nice game and nice guest, once again!
I am looking forward to your take on the changes in points and missions brought by the Chapter Approved… reading the preview on Goonhammer left me quite a bit unsatisfied and in some cases frankly bewildered, and I am curious to hear your thoughts on this.
I am just happy that they confirmed the dataslate for february and that they seem to be committed on their promise to keep up with the adjustments.
