Great game! I now demand that you all play in formal wear all the time. You could be the sharpest dressed channel on the web. Maybe extend the Grotty clothing line into suits and ties?
P. S. even in super casual games, please use the strats that are available, marines already have an uphill battle into the 9th Ed books 😂

In regards to paying for Abaddons WLTs – you only pay 1 CP for him, and unlock all three of them, as stated at the bottom of a Warcom article.
** Importantly, though you must now pay 1CP each for a Warlord Trait and a Relic, Warlords that gain multiple Warlord Traits – such as Mortarion – still only pay 1CP in total.
Edit: Nevermind, saw Chefs comment in the Emps. Children video that you are aware of it.

Wondering why they sent Horus to fight the emprah and not Abbadon? He’s clearly bitch slapping a primarch… Our beloved MW would disagree with this game! Apart from that, awesome game as usual! Fun to watch 🙂

Amazing game!!! I gotta say though, Abbadon and Guilliman are so far away one of each other….GW should at least try to compensate the main characters…Abbadon can kill a primarch in one turn and Abbadon just gets 3 wounds 😱😱😱so many attacks, powerful, re-rolls, desengaging, shooting and fighting again??? This is just crazzy…regardless, fun to watch and good work guys!

Legionaries not Legionaires. Legionaires fight in the French Foreign Legion. Legionaries describes the soldiers of Imperial Roman. Please not that Chaos Marines belong to the Legions – so they are Legionaries. Please get it right!

Beard’s suit appears to be Black Watch tartan. Not quite Black Legion but appropriate formal Chaotic Scotsman energy.

Abaddon looked all the various Primarchs and thought: “Laughable. Let me show them how it is done”
Poor Bobby, let’s hope in Codex 2.0. Magnus and Mortarion will have to wait another edition probably.

I`m happy for my fellow Chaos Marine players. The new codex seems fun and not broken. Love the chonky scenery and the pew pew effects.

On a sidenote: How about a tour of the studio? I want to see the Servoskull station, the painting room etc.

Beard’s having so much fun. It’s Iron Warriors and Black Legion for the foreseeable future. Chef, when are we seeing that Alpha Legion army?

I really really hate to be that gal because linguistic prescriptivism is cringe, but the plural of legionnaire is [legion-air-ee-s]. [legion-airs] is a pulmonary disease caused bu inhalation of aerosolised water containing the legionella bacteria. Thoroughly enjoyed the batrep and I’m so excited for chaos week!

I missed the movement panel you guys used to do after the movement phase, just for keeping track of where everything is.
I REALLY like the shooting/psychic top down overlay for both the graphics and for getting a birds eye view of the entire battlefield.
Also, I can’t support your choices with the GT pack stuff more. Half CP but house ruling the Warlord trait cost is a decision Grandfather Nurgle would approve of.

Knew Abadon would slap Guilliman. He is so under welming now. Even a human sister of battle can one shot him. :/

Ya’ll do such phenomenal work – what a game! It’s also awesome to see how Katie and James improve as players, editing videos, etc., and progress “in career.” The new painting tutorials are just another great addition to have Fletcher engage on the channel. TT really is top-notch/tier for the community. Thanks!

not a big fan of the GT pack CP rules -> not a fan of it getting taken over into non-league games. It just makes lists more boring since situational traits and relics become deadweight & any FW unit with a CP tax that’s not OP gets damned to rot on the shelf. If someone does not want to spend any CP pregame, that’s fine but I heavily dislike that the option has been taken from players (especially since some codices are balanced around using CP for traits/relics/multiple detachments to get stuff like specialist mobs.

I love all the presenters we have on this show but there’s something about Bard’s genuine enthusiasm, win or lose that is just fantastic.

Also Mr. Beard Sir! A quite belated congrats on the baby!

I’ll also add to the chorus, in that the new attack animations are really sharp. I know it must be time consuming, so wanted to say I do appreciate it.

I’ve been wondering, does it help the channel more to watch the “Free-View” videos on the youtube channel or here on the site? I’m happy to watch it on either, but if one is better for y’all one way or the other, I’d be glad to watch it that way.

Love the visuals of what unit is shooting what enemy unit, I’m often painting and not always looking at my screen all the time so this helps bring back understandng =)
Abbadon is bad bad man, also hype for the Oblits

Its good to see that the Chaos marines finally get the new codex. However it also shows how much the Imperial Regent needs a rule update.

Abaddon can reroll his own hits and wounds.l as he’s a Black Legion Character.

James! No stratagems, no CP rerolls, why are you trying so hard to lose? Bobby G could have fought on death, Tigerius could have used Transhuman just as a lot of intercessors and blade guards. Losing the game while having 7 CPs left is kinda stupid, especially considering you regenerate them 5+. Not using stratagems got too far. A great battle report, great to see CSMs updated to be a real menace, the only thing is probably Abby is a bit too strong, especially for armies without psychic support. (it would be nice to see how T’au can deal with… Read more »
