I got far too much enjoyment out of 1:27:28 and watched it wayyy too many times. Top notch fellas, hugely entertaining!

Oh man this is so much more fun !!! I utterly hate having to pick secondary objectives so this is win win win all day.
It actually helps books that aren’t very competitive atm because it had that random aspect.
Love it

This one was so much fun to watch! You’ve completely sold me on Tempest of War, it sounds like it makes setup quicker and feels so much more competitive – I’ve already ordered my set. The only thing I worry about is I play Thousand Sons, and I know you mentioned unbalanced armies might suffer under these rules, I wonder if I’m likely to struggle?

Amazing game, pleasure to watch. I also wrongly assumed from the description on the warcom article that tempest was open war. So happy that I was mistaken.

That was an absolute delight to watch! Changing those secondaries around and having to be so adaptable is exactly the 40K I’m looking for.

And your folks looked like you were having so much fun, which is what it’s all about!

But seriously, Beard.
What was wrong with your dice? Have you robbed the luck of the Iri… Spider?
I literally never saw you rolling that hot. Awesome.

I’m just going to echo what others have said, this was fun to watch and I feel a step in the right direction for 9th edition, for me. I’m looking to giving this a go once I get those cards!

So happy to see a fun and random game of 40k! This should be the gold standard in set releases moving forward too, the cards are so handy and much easier than flipping through multiple rulebooks.

Absolutely THRILLED to have this back! After a rough few months of being uninspired with my Iron Warriors/CSM due to the state of codex/game, the wombo-combo of the 2 wound announcement and Tempest of War has reinvigorated me to continue the Long War! Cannot wait to see more of this content from you guys. Iron Within! Iron Without!

As always it was great to watch you enjoy yourselves so much!
Personally I am still on the fence about Tempest cause I didn’t like the randomness of Maelstrom since I prefer a more “studied” approach to the game (even now that I am so disillusioned with competitive and disgusted by how bad GW is at balancing), but also cause I still don’t know if anyone in my gaming group would be interested in trying it. I will watch your games and your review with great interest, and maybe I will come to it a bit later.

Completely echo what you say at the end of the report. For me, 9th has become very clinical and optimised even below the competitive level, you take the same few secondaries and need to build your lists with the same few units taken three times to, generally speaking, stand a fighting chance of scoring well, which has become very formulaic and dull as the edition has come on. Even speaking as someone not enthralled by Maelstrom in 8th, I genuinely believe this is the sort of thing the game needs in order to promote diverse army selections, more styles of… Read more »

Great battle report. Great show. I think Tempest is even better than Maelstrom or Schemes.
Thanks for playing Ultramarines with Uriel Ventris. Love them so much.

I’m very impressed with the Tempest of War rules. Though I do enjoy the mission packs, they are a pain to implement in pick-up games, so this will be a welcome alternative at my local game store. And this served as a great ambassador to the new cards. A tight game to the very end!
On a completely different tangent, I have to say this was the first time I really took a look at the Ultramarines models. The paint job on Tigerius is MAGNIFICENT! Same for the new Apothecary model. Well done!

I do love maelstrom of war battle reps and I think it’s the best type of game since Ive gotten back into the game. Allways a great time had when Beard and Chef play Maelstrom!

Sorry to detract from the video but just was wondering if you guys have any thoughts on potentially getting into the new Horus heresy? I think you guys would make some absolutely amazing narrative games with them!

It’s interesting watching two early codexes going at each other. Both armies have tons left by the end of the third turn compared to a more recent codex where the board is down to scraps by then.

Can’t help but feel it makes for more interesting games.

The tempest cards meaning you can’t build your army to farm the same secondaries feels like an improvement especially in casual games.

Maelstrom was always my favourite way to play as it levelled out the playing field a bit. Hopefully this does the same and if it does a nice even balance between this and competitive would work well. Shows everyone how flexible this game can be if you play it the way you love (yes even with your own house rules.)
