That was a lot of fun to watch!

Btw. really nice to see those firstborns out for a walk. With the AoC inplay i think they’re seriously powered up a fair bit – in special if you look on their prize tags and how much points to pay for them.
Well maybe not that interesting against other AoC armies but vs. non-AoC its definitly a cool option … and hey… its damn nice to see them on the tabletop!
Same for the old Liberian.

Another brilliant narrative report, folks. The rapport is excellent, the banter and storytelling is excellent and it’s lovely to see you make on the fly decisions about narrative events within the story.

This is how I love to see 40K played.

What a great game! I can already hear the sound of the storm raven crushing through waves of gargoyles in the atmosphere…and with light of the first day Bobby G walks on the battlefield to protect the world against the true “father” of the hive mind….smells like narrative onslaught baaabbyyyyyy…or a new 4player narrative match up…🦾😎

The Ultras can stop the Tyranids with a boarding action against the incoming Hive Ship. Cassius can lead a strike of Tyrannic War Veterans (and maybe his old DW Kill Team if you find the models and turn Fletcher loose).

Thanks, really fun watch, laughed a lot. I do enjoy these narrative games, reminds me of the games my friends and I played when we were younger.

I really like these narrative games with an overarching storyline. Probably the best content you’re making. I in fact wish you would do them more often! Also, minor point of feedback. The storylines are a bit hard to follow with the irregular release schedule (at least it feels like that) and the going back and forth between different storylines. That’s part of what I like (you see more armies rather than just a fixed few in a full on campaign), but perhaps it’s just not enough releases to really tie things together. Perhaps something you can take into account for… Read more »

Is there any way we can another crusade series? I love seeing the crusade rules being used and maybe using one of the crusade books as well. That would be super cool.
