I really can’t wait for Tyranids codex so they lose their double shoot and other 8th edition jank.

WITH THAT SAID:

Very fun game with you two. Very nice to see a Tyranid list without 12 hiveguard and see Katie come into her own!

Ha! 1:20.23 – GO GREY KNIGHTS! Fun game. It always seems to spiral off into comedic madness when Beard and Jinx aree in charge. Super entertaining. The stranglethorn cannon is particularly exciting, it’s a larger version of the Barbed Strangler straight from the 2nd Ed. Codex- The barbed strangler is the actual projectile, the name being transferred to the weapon itself. The seed begins within a seed pod the size of a man’s fist and is fired from a simple muscled tube. If the pod pierces armour it activates and grows, thanks to the warmth of the body it just… Read more »

This was a good game, really felt like the losing decision was misplaying those carnifexes. That was a lot of points that did nothing and could have been used to screen.
Minor Note: at 33 min Beard says he wounds the exocrine twice with the eradicator while one of those rolls was a 3 with how close this one was and how close that exocrine was to surviving it could have been significant.
Good game to all and a very fun watch!!!

Crusher stampede without any FW is a bit hard though as you pointed out:)

What a great report love it when the game, swings each round. This here is pure entertainment! Emotional rollercoaster ride! It’s this type of content that keeps me subscribed. Great to see a win for the great bearded one just a shame it was with loyalist and not the warped powers of chaos.

It says Crusher Stampede, but isn’t this just Katie’s regular list with a few fexes? I don’t think for a competitive minded league game that this is at all a Crusher Stampede list.

The feeling when your rolls are very bad AND their rolls are very good. Oof.
Edit: What a turn around!

It’s replaced the old tactica series at the very least.

As Einstein teached us, everything is relative! so Katie isn’t small at all, she is in fact quite tall.
It’s just that Mr. Beard is a towering giant.

Hi guys
It does say ‘Gray Knights Victory Astra Militarum Concede’ and ‘Prodcutions’ in the credits.
Doesn’t take anything away from, your excellent battle report.

Still number one, 40K channel.

Cheers
