Enjoyed the video – as always. My one gripe is trying the party bus against the currently most overpowered faction in the game.

Enjoyed the game, even if I dont really like the factions involved (although I like the nids lore/aesthetic, that psychic phase is just waaaaay too much) Katie and Bard made it a fun watch, so big love!

Just one thing though.. exocreen not exocryne..maybe? =P

(p.s the dark gods told me there must be more chaos knight action or the consequences may be dark and terrible)

Sir Bard it seems that you need some new Dice or to prepair a Ritual of Blessing to lift their Curse.

At 22 I thought James was mimicking the sorcerer in Monthy Python’s ‘Holy Grail’

Good enjoy game but You know GW gone wrong when nids are out doing a pskyer army in the psychic phase Jesus lol 😂 plus I’ll agreed with chef #NoCPrerolls they never work out and I’ve feel better in my games not doing it if I’m being honest 🙂 Nids do need a points increase to bring them in line with other codex but we have to wait till June for that 🙁 otherwise Jame and jinx it was fun game to watch can’t wait for next one 🙂

I really like Your all games , servoskull teaching other about their armies (that is really helpful not anoying) but one thing hurt me as hell… State of Tyranids . They are so broken… Psychic phase=very powerful , Shooting=really good , Melee=no problem ! They can do it aswell even saves they got so MANY inv saves for almost full army. They are much worse than Harlequins because clowns are pricy , soft but hit hard. Tyranid codex right now is like “Take everything that exist in book and make it SO powerful that nobody can’t stand against them”

Super happy to see Maurice in action, I just finished painting mine up and want to take him for a test drive.
To Chef – RE: exposed brains on nids being tough: my headcanon is that the brain is a swirling mass of focussed warp energy, far from being a weak spot of the unit it is actually the strongest and best-protected part. Librarians often don’t have helmets and use psychic hoods to amplify their abilities. They kinda need their cranium intact to, you know, keep on living. The hivemind created something that dispensed with that requirement.

Another fun game to watch, well done! I’m also so surprised to learn that Jinx is 4′ tall.

Exocrines are amazing, i was reluctant at first as well to field them. but having a 1CP strat to give them Transhuman, being able to pay for a permanent 4++ is amazing. coupled with the fact they have very good volume of fire with a strong statline weapon, added in the bonus of moving 3.9″ and being able to ignore ALL forms all cover means youre mostly hitting on 3’s. Just try not to fall into the trap of using “Observer Organism” for the exploding 6’s, ive felt its consistently kind of a waste. I love Tyranids, big Leviathan player… Read more »

Katie, I know this wasn’t a particularly optimised list but I’m curious as to your thoughts why you equipped the parasite with the dirge heart relic as it already removes obsec on a successful wound roll in combat with the tail or when you fly over models and use a 1cp strat. Makes it kinda redundant… not that it made a difference to anything in this game anyway. Congrats on the win but I think your opponents might want to consider beefing up their lists a bit when playing nids to try and make things a bit more even.

As was mentioned at the start I’d be happy to see command of the tyranids shared out to all the presenters, helps keep things fresh and interesting to see others take on lists and tactics with them

Frankly, I am more and more baffled and (in a way) intrigued by the disastrous chain of broken codices they released. In one respect, the game designers demonstrate considerable talent and imagination: I do not believe that the factions in WH40k have ever been so well characterised and defined in line with the lore, and this is great. From another point of view, however, they demonstrate shocking incompetence. They don’t seem to have the slightest understanding of what’s strong and what’s not in the game they themselves create, and in the last few months they’ve released at least 6 codices… Read more »

Well, how’s my day going…..watching another really cool batrep whilst having a little homebrewed chana masala – can’t get much better, really… 🙂

I can see Jinx turning into to Kerringan after that game saying ‘I am the Swarm’. I really did enjoy that game, seeing more balanced lists is more fun than watching 2 tooled up lists deleting each other in a turn or two. Swingy is best #Tempest #Fun!
