“we made this gentleman agreement that Magnus and the avatar should meget in glorious Combat.”

*Doesn’t shoot at Magnus*

Chef: my turn now?

*Destroys avatar with psychic powers*
*Destroys avatar again in CC*

Chef: sorry.
*Edited for language.

Really nice painted armies on both sides of the table + the Craftworlds paint scheme flavoured in SO good into the terrain and to the TS army. Really liked that.

Bit of a shame that it went that horrible for the CW but hey… those things happen from time to time. Wish all the the luck for the next match and always nice to see you on the screen, Matt!

Great and brutal game guys, what a slaughter. The Thousand Sons look so much fun to play with. I really like that cabal dice system. If only I painted 10 times faster than I do and had more time to play I’d surely get myself an army! Now I’ll just have to do with watching Chef be the infernal master ;).

Not sure I would have taken the Gentleman’s agreement not to shoot Magnus off the board… he is just too dangerous to be allowed to roam free even for one turn. An interesting game despite that.

Chef’s eye looks painful I thought. Now I have conjunctivitis or something – will never doubt the power of Chef again (transmitting eye problems through the internet is niche and more nurgly than I would have expected from Chef, but powerful nonetheless)

The armies in this match are so beautiful, but this match continues to reinforce my opinion that Death Hex and Null Zone need to be removed from the game or get Eldritch Stormed and become a once per game use at WC 12.

Chef, would just like to get your opinion – given that warped regeneration status can only be healed once per turn (nothing to say by the stratagem,) would that not mean you couldn’t of use the strat as you had used temporal manipulation on him prior that turn?
Not by this point it would of made a huge difference

My word that avatar is outstanding I’d been toying with starting an eldar/harlequins army after watching pretty much every bat rep with the two it’s decided, great game

Welcome back to Matt! Regarding the disccussion at the end of the game, I personally don’t think the Aeldari were nerfed too much at least in the competitive scene: they are still one of the strongest faction, even though maybe they shifted thier focus to different units. The comment about the Necrons is fair, they were buffed too much and their secondaries are really too easy to score, and also the Bloody Rose sisters need to be reined in cause they too have easy secondaries and some units that are excessively pushed. That said it’s since the Drukhari codex that… Read more »
