Well Chef any chance the lists can be added to the description assuming you managed to get home at a reasonable time of course.

Just want to mention something I have been seeing for a long time now. But I think it could be good to train some of the tabletoptactics staff in some strategy, like when I watch a batrep I almost always know the outcome before the game has even started just by who is facing who unless there is a big skew in the list/armies power creep. Like in the current league report it is evident that spider is taking the least powerful army of the bunch to try and level the playing field a bit. My current ranking of tabletop… Read more »

Hi Chef, my wife just wanted to say she was glad your eyes are looking better! Hope you’re doing well! Lots of love from Australia :).

Have you consider illuminor szeras instead of the technomancer? 2 rez’s a turn without CP, some high AP and dmg shooting, and the buffs can be key with how many core units there are

League is killing it so far, looking forward to Nids and Tau entering the arena. Cheers.

When it gets to the point where the winner is known but you are playing for points, I’d like to see you guys play through it. Hearing the options, seeing why you do what you’re doing, I think would be useful to us. Especially since it seems like you play through it anyway.

Loving this new league format. Cant wait to see how it turns out. Chef, I feel you with the heavy destroyers. They look good on paper and fill a needed role in necrons but then I use them and they are just meh. Also, Scarabs for life.

Great game I’ll enjoy very much 🙂 Good win for the necrons and it hard to stop them scoring that primary and there secondary as they just be everywhere but to be fair bard dice hated him in that game lol 😂 everything he need just like not for you lol 😂 I’ll like bard list I’ll only have a suggestion defo put one Grand master in dreadknight back in just him as I’ll feel he is great unit plus get re-roll ones and a great threat on the board honestly 🙂

so i play against crons a lot, my buddy leans heavily into canoptek, he swears by 1-2 canoptek spyders. Especially with loads of scarabs. not sure if they’d be a help with where chefs at but throwing the idea out there. As usual awesome game guys, love your content!

The silver armoured son of titan vs the silver tide of the silent king… very nice indeed. I think the wraith with the whips should have said “knees are for the weak, my arms are spaghetti” 😀 keep up the good work!

Worth flagging for Bard that Gem of Inoktu only gives 2 on Dominus powers. Purifying Flame is Sanctic so wouldn’t get the bonus. Didn’t make a difference this game as you rolled a 6 for flame, but one to bear in mind if it frees up some points.

I like this list though. I think there’s still value in at least a GMDK. It adds decent ranged horde clear (despite now not being so good into tougher things) and is a beat stick and/or distraction carnifex dependent on how you use him.

We all make noises moving our models Chef. Pretty sure it is in the rules (Gorkamorka rules anyway)!

Great game! You need new dice Bard. Lol 😂
I’m anxious to see Chef face off against Tyranids. You guys rock and thank you for not doing live stuff! Sometimes it’s nice to hear super chats get answered in real time but mostly it’s just disruptive and annoying.
Keep that great content coming

If only Bard would have embraced the waaaggh …the orks fit him like a glove …not some grey umie gits… since there are no Orks in the league, i root for chef and the necron (painting some up at the moment)
Awesome Games as always.

The League is really the best, I especially love the analisys and explanations. Already can’t wait for the next match!
P.s. Speaking of League…. the Votann are awesome, I am so looking forward to collect them all!

I’m loving the League format you all are using! I’m curious though, what limitations are you using to make sure you can’t change your list to counter a specific opponent? Thanks for the awesome content!

Been very excited to see this match up! Also, Chef’s quote at the beginning might be from Sovereign, but I can’t help but hear the Shadow Broker’s theme whenever The Silent King shows up. Excited to see how the changes to both lists play! Edit: And that was indeed a fantastic game! Btw Chef, if you’re looking for other changes going forward, I’ve been hearing good things about Tomb Blades as well. With gauss blasters, shadowlooms, and shieldvanes, they’re fast and tough to shift, and they’re very competitively priced right now (31 points per model with full gear). Just another… Read more »

As ever the content is great. These armies are gorgeous to watch on the table (I wish I could afford mine to be painted,) and the banter is always second to none. I did notice at 59 minutes that James’ knights had 0vp and 24 cp. Saving them for what buddy? 🤣🤣
I love Chef’s ability to pull out rules for most things. He is the me from my dnd group and I really respect that ability.
I’m sorry Chef, but I am looking forward to codex votaan review by you lot
