Jinx, in 30 seconds you revealed yourself to be both a Jurassic Park and a Star Wars nerd! <3 <3 <3

You guys are fun to watch but the games are hard to enjoy. New codexes are broken, point and click, way OP Stupid stupid rules. many other commenters have already pointed out the nonsense in this codex. I know Jinx is excited since its her fav army but seriously, as content creators, it has to be hard to read these new rules with a straight face and think this crap is good for the game.

This is nothing aginst you guys at all! The current state of the codexes and with how complicated that the main missions are now, I’m starting to really loose intrest in the gaming side of 40k. I’m starting to play AoS more just due to the fact that it is easier to play. I would also love a good Chef rant 🙂

Im trying not to be Whiny. But … After “my entire army has transhuman, my psykers has 4++ save and get +5 to cast” i just skipped till the end. Looking at the vp i didnt miss anything. 😟

Great game you guys! It was fun to see the new codex, but its way to strong. The rule that gives all units within synaptic link an inv save (and other things each turn) affect way to many units. And whats with the permanent transhuman of leviathan. The codex creep is a real problem in my opinion. If you play an army with an older codex you have to write quite powerful lists just to keep it balanced in casual games. Its sadly making me loose interest in the gaming side of the hobby. I want to se a Chef… Read more »

James, make sure you check the riptide ion guns profile. Standard damage is 3 and overcharged is 4 so no reason to risk mortals if you’re only firing at 3 wound models.

Ähm, James, did you ever used your farsight trait? I mean, you were pretty often in 12″ of enemy units? Whoops, jap you did. Nervermind. 👀

Nice game! Some more top view shots here and there would have been nice. With only spiders close up filming of the table it was sometimes hard to follow what was going on.

Excellent match, love seeing the new codex and how it paired up to another really powerful book. GG both of you.

A fun game to watch! You guys make all the bad stuff seem far less bad with your great energy!

That said, it is sad to see the Codex-creep keep going strong. Recent releases make the Drukhari and Grey Knights not seem so bad anymore.

Hoping for better balanced rules in the future and as always, looking forward to more content from you great folks at TTT!

Can someone explain to me why you need to roll things 1 at a time to use a re-roll since everything is meant to happen at once? I am sure this is correct but not how I have been playing it.

Interesting game to watch. Thank you for that.
I am still not quite sure what to think of Tyranids. For some reason I just can´t relate to them.

First I lobed the game and you guys make it 100% more enjoyable with that energy 2 ned heads playing against each other, I don’t know if you flipped a coin for it or the Bard was afraid of Jinx will eat him whole 😉. I just want to say what I think everyone wants to see. I didn’t crunch the numbers yet, but hear me out (I am not a ned player): TYRANIDS 3 tervigons 120 termagants 2 tyrannofexs 6 hive guard Tau Sa’cea sept Cold star 3×10 Strike teams 6 crisis Battlesuits all flamers 3 Piranha Stormsurge Just… Read more »

With chaos continuing to be painful to play, and not in a good pain sort of way, I have branched out in to Tyranids, so its nice to see the codex in a game on here (as opposed to just TTS where they thoroughly stomped my EC/Knights list).
Love it! and love the enthusiasm (especially Katies!) Hope the new chaos books will make me as excited when they finally, eventually, arrive!

I just don’t understand why they decided to nerf the Irconclot Furnance of The Poxmongers relic … When they’re handing out 4+ invulnerable saves out so readily.

or

why Thousand Sons don’t have something similar to the Zoanthropes ? I mean the mortal wound output is insane.

Endless swarm strat you have to place resurrected models on the board within engagement range of enemy unit (if the unit is already in engagement range) which those gaunts were with the devil fish

Katie when the big bugs explode they only effect enemy models, no more friendly fire from them

Great game and great to see the new nids in action!

I dont understand how Tau couldnt catch up though? Tyranids cap on 45 primary 8 RND 5 engage 6 BiD = 64…

Tau had 3 rounds to score primary and even scored at the end of turn 5??

Erm you can’t bounce psychic scream off synapse units, it’s still just closest enemy within 18” and hasn’t changed if my leaked copy of the codex is still correct. And neuroparasite is within 12” link range OR 18” of caster. From your explanation before you first cast it you said it was 18” from any synapse in link range and it didn’t seem the fire warriors were in range for it to go off. Bit of a shocker for a 1st psychic phase

Every time it shoots, The tyrannofex with rupture canon reminds me of the artillery bug from Starship Trooper.

Happy for Tyranid players, but the Codex seems again to be beyond broken. I guess that is what you need against Harlequins.

Like a once famous sith lord said – ‘I’m looking forward to this’. I am glad Jinx has the Tyranids for this and i was hoping for them to munch through Harlequins, but that can wait a couple of days :D. I will be watching all the videos for this over today – but as I am saving up for squats i wont be able to get an army for them right now 🙁 Thanks guys your da best.
