Chef reminds me so much of my cousin! Such a tactical player with all the knowledge. Uses every fine detail to his advantage. The pen is mightier than the sword as they say! Great game as usual

Ps.. I would love the paint recipe for the necrons. That matt metal effect on the armour looks so good 👌

Did Chef forget the obsec dynasty makes his Immortals count as 2 models for obsec in turn 4?

Great game I’ll super enjoy it seeing competitive dude of it and love the way your going to run it I’ll feel it going to be much better and glad we going on the journey with you guys with you list I’ll can’t wait for more of them 🙂 super enjoyable and can’t believe the spider put it out the bag in the last turn of the game as I’ll also though the necrons had it in the bag but I’ll agreed with chef point defo moving back hurt more in that game trust the silent king and he give… Read more »

What a cracking new format and I’m not even a big fan on competitive 40k! The little commentary breaks intra-turn are top shelf rather than start/end of turn summaries. Must make editing a chore though chopping between tabletop footage and commentary. Great work team TT (TTT lolz)

Bit late to this, but that was absolutely superb chaps, huge well done to you both. I just shows how important it is to play the mission. A salutary reminder that 40k isn’t really about killing things, it’s about scoring points – in whatever sneaky, janky, guttersnipe, cunning, clever way you possibly can. Weirdly, I always find it psychologically easier to do when I feel like the underdog? It’s very tempting when one has the firepower / combat punch to fall into the trap of just using it and trying to smash everything, and forgetting to wring everything you can… Read more »

Fantastic Game. Honestly thought Chef was going to take the win, but the sheer bloodthirsty nature of the Flesh Tearers proved too much!

Why are you paying for honoured by the arc angelic UK as flesh tearers? P44 of BA supplement says “relics of the angels cannot be given to a character model from a successor chapter (OTHER THAN FLESHTEARERS) unless you use the honoured by the art angelicum stratagem” emphasis mine.

Awesome game, loved the short tactic updates and allowing each other for a few corrections when needed. I use centurions a lot especially in a flyer just love how they just delete units of the battlefield.

Incredible match, well played on both ends and really could’ve gone either way. The new league format is better than ever and what a great match to prove it’s worth. Terrific cutaways that didnt take away momentum and the match flew by. Didnt feel drawn out at all, while still keeping the fun you lot bring to tabletop play. Well done!

Chef I’d find a way to ditch the immortals and scarabs for more destroyers IMO. I just feel like scarabs and immortals don’t really pull their weight.

Amazing and well played Lawrence. Chef take Code Combat against aggressive armies. Will always get you more points there and also killing Seth would have gained you a CP. I still have faith in the Necrons taking the league title!!! Amazing work as ever team!

May not be a fan of the current Matched Play landscape and setup, but a superb watch as always and really enjoying the reintroduction of the player feedback after each turn which can be learned from regardless of game style. Shame the Necrons couldn’t get the win but long way to go yet.

Glad to see matched play back. I wonder if you find it more fun with the Nephelim changes Chef.
Also Lawrence your decission of not going for oath in the particular game payed off. Congrats! Loved the batrep.

Chef, any chance you might try a c’tan? Every list runs the silent king, obviously because he’s so damn good and necrons need the help. But I don’t think I’ve seen anyone run a c’tan since the book came out and I’m really curious about how they’d do.

I think Chef had the better workout plan, was clearly unlucky at some key moments otherwise the game was his, top level playing.
But man, you got to love how Spider adapts and reacts to situations even if he seems to be loosing control or made mistakes. It is so top level! You leave a tiny bit of space and be takes it all.
Conclusion: i love this game and the format is so promising. Can’t wait for next!! Can you tell us the match-up as an avant bouche? 🙂

Great game, really entertaining and nice to see two competitive and fluffy armies going toe-to-toe. The ending did leave a bit of a sour taste though – that final bit of jank just smacks of poorly-written game mechanics to me. To be clear, I have absolutely no problem with what Spider did, taking advantage of opportunities presented to you is what winning competitive games is all about. However, the fact that this edgiest of edge cases can be used to swing a game seems to me to be huge oversight in terms of game balance and must have felt like… Read more »
