That is so awesome! They look amazing! Kudos to Siege Studios and Beard for this. I know you will enjoy this one for some time to come and I guess so will we 🙂

Kudos to everyone behind the scenes on making this moment so cool to watch! Thinking back I remember quite a few casual Emperor’s Children comments Spider’s made over the past few months. Would it be possible to thumb through the archives to catch close-ups of Spider’s cohost reactions of immediate panic that Spider might ruin this great surprise? 😀

Someone mentioned this on the youtube of this video, but I guess this makes Beard officially the Keeper of Secrets for the channel.

Oh man.. this is so so awesome! As an avid Emperor’s Children player as well, this is exciting to no end! So glad you guys have the army on the channel now and congrats to Lawrence for being able to return to the excess! Well done for the team and Siege Studios.. that army is absolutely gorgeous. Seeing Lawrence’s face light up over and over was a real treat. You guys are all such awesome people. Thanks for sharing this with us all, makes us feel like part of the group. <3

Lawrence entertaining the audience while Beard stepped out had strong Ian Malcolm vibes; “Now I’m here standing by myself, eh, talking to myself! Now that’s- *that’s* Chaos Theory”. What a gorgeous new force, I can’t wait to see how they perform with all the new Chaos goodies on their way in the next few months. Well done Beard and Siege on this amazing gift for our hard working (and hard playing) CEO.

Today I saw the value and deep connection of "real" friends. A year ago I witnessed the regret over the loss of Lawrance and his regret. Like many others, I also liked the #getlawrenceemperorschildrenback. We all wanted to do good for each other during the difficult Covid lockdown period. Now it finally happened!!! Honor this army and NEVER give it back ;)
Only the New Code is missing. But on December 23rd it will definitely be time... the year of chaos is approaching

Congratulations, Spider! I can’t wait to see this beautiful army on the channel. I’ve been building a big EC army since the start of the pandemic but I rarely see anyone else running them.

Thats an amazing EC army!
Now we just have to wait for what blessings the dark gods have for us with the CSM Codex.

For the last week I’ve been sorting the CSM bits and kits I’ve collected, built, and stashed over the years, thinking, “I really need to get on that EC army project.” I spent a good few hours just yesterday looking through youtube ect for more conversion, painting, and general inspiration. Today, I fire up my favourite 40k website, and low and behold, I find the Dark Prince Himself has been whispering into my ear. Now is the time to GET LOUD!! So excited for this! Far and away the number one addition I’ve hoped to see show up on the… Read more »

I think the thing that surprised me the most is that Spider managed to keep the video PG-13. That’s an awesome surprise!

This was a joy to watch, not just because the EC are my favourite chaos marine faction but because Lawrence seemed sooo genuinely over the moon. Great job to beard and siege studios (models looked out of this world amazing)!!!!
