Amazing game, really enjoyed the sheer hilarity of it. So as long as future games have 1 ridiculous psychic phase, Alan Titchmarsh and DEEEEMON SAVESSSS!!! we should be good forever more.

I thought Beard said that the Insidious Whispers perils were D6 instead of D3? Because Bard rolled a D3 for his first perils?

Malefic is just the same as “the model can make X additional attacks, but no more than X attacks with this weapon”, right? It’s weird that they came up with Malefic as a keyword, because a lot of models across many armies would have this keyword apply if they named it generically.

Now that we have “Daemon Saves” as different from “Invulnerable Saves”, I wonder how many models they’re going to give this “Incorporeal Warp Being” save to. The Incarne – Seems obvious. Yes. St. Celestian and Squad – probably not, when powered down on Cadia, she didn’t vanish, so it seems it’s an actual physical shell, not incarnated warp energy. Maybe the Gematria? I forget if the disappeared or were just powered down like Celestine. Daemon Engines – Definitely physical, so no. Legion of the Damned – Seems like they should, whether Warp Incarnations or Psychic Emanations of the Emperor. Avatar… Read more »

DAEMON SAVE!! This was such a great game to watch. Fletcher has done an outstanding job on Be’lakor. I’m very excited to get my Chaos Daemons codex after this.

That psychic phase was legendary. But more importantly the “true name” of the daemon. It brought a tear to my eye I laughed so hard. You need to find more true names 🤣🤣

That game was a riot! That is, at least for me, what 40k is about: Gather a friend, tell some awesome stories and laugh your bottoms of while pandemonium ensues!
Keep up that work! And thanks to Beard for editing what i assume where all his “dEmOn sAvEs!!111elf!”

Great batrep!
For this game you didn’t, but I wonder if you will play Malefic as written in the future, as in Malefic weapons ignoring Armour of Contempt? I am honestly not sure if it is intended to do that or not, so I’m curious what you think.

Is it a bad thing that when Daemonic Saves were previewed, the first thing I thought of was how much Mr. Beard would love yelling DAEMON SAVE!!! multiple times every game?

Well I was looking forward to deamon release a lot, so I am kind of confused to see the first preview game of the new codex to be against hard anti-deamon specialist list. The gk were bonkers here, all army hit and wound rerolls, mw boost, draigo, 2 knights, paladins and terminators against a what I imagine was a sort of a testing list for Beard. Although the energy and entertainment from both of these gentlemen were fantastic as usual, I am disappointed to see the previewed army being all but tabled by turn 4.

Great game gents. It’s good to see that Chaos Daemons aren’t completely over the top but seem to be quite balanced, although I guess that may be hard to gauge considering how ‘on fire’ Bard’s dice were. Good to see that Greater Daemons are in fact complete baddies, good on you for presumably giving that sort of feedback to the rules writers haha. Warp Storm seems interesting, it’s a shame that you didn’t really get to see them in all of it’s awesome glory though. Would be nice to see the other traits being used, but I can understand being… Read more »

The Daemonslayer thing does make sense to remove Daemon Saves, but there are other Daemons that have the usual invulnerable saves; those in say codex: Death Guard/TS, but also things like the Yncarne, the Avatar as well. So there are still benefits.
Of course, it’s just weird that by RAW it doesn’t actually really affect *Daemons* haha

The dice rolling was impeccable as well, as you would expect for beard and bard 🤣

TIL Belakors weaknesses are Grey Knights, and 12 mortal wounds in the psychic phase. Devil of a game guys, the energy of the vibes are infectious, Nurgle would be proud, loving it 🤘. Grey Knights seem to really punish Daemons which is fluffy but kind of reminds me of my EC csm vs The Great Enemy or Vengeance for Cadia…I’d like to say its a good pain but it may well not be. In all seriousness though, No Slaanesh!?! Thou hast offended mine reportedly ‘perverse’ sensibilities, and denied the thirsty one of her deserved attention. You have been informed. (As… Read more »

Man that was an amazing game, I was very excited for the new demons 😊, but the gray Knights banished them 😈

I love the new Belkor, I hope you use him again soon.

Really you made my day 😁

That was a fun game! I am looking forward to see how other factions less specialized in fighting demons will do against them, cause some things seems quite a bit pushed.

Really excited about Daemons Codex – I’ve got some Nurgle Daemons just collecting dust since 9th dropped and they may finally see the light of day. That said, I really should be focussing on my Scions.

Speaking of which, any chance of seeing some Scions in action soon? They’re not too painful post-HotE changes…

There seems to be a pattern forming almost every time it’s either a James or Katie bat rep either 1 list doesn’t make it in the description or there is no lists in the description?

But Fletcher definitely needs to tell us how he painted Bel’akor that’s an amazing job.

You have… Bel’akor????? Lawrence finally splashed out? Grats. As much as I love grey knights I’m so sorry its time for demons to shine. Hopefully
