It’s I vs IV in this clash of Power Armour, but will it be a Bard or Beard victory?

@Beard as a headsup they did sneak into the Imperial Armour Compendium FAQ on 21/9
“Page 120-141 โ€“ All Transport datasheets, Transport section Add: โ€˜Each Possessed model takes up the space of 2 models.โ€™”
Its easy to miss due to not putting it under the transports themselves and instead listing it earlier in the FAQ and making a blanket statement.

That was a great game. Tempest is so much fun as it kept the game interesting right up to the end like it usually does. Beard, also with IW they have that -1 damage for Infantry/deamonkin which really helps the possessed and if you used it instead of interrupt I think you would have had more left as you only killed like 2 with the interrupt. I love your guys content, it is the best on the web.

Great fun game, awesome to see the Spartan full of Possessed (they do take up two btw but with a 25 capacity hardly matters)! Do wonder if laser destroyers may be better than the quad. Less shots but far more reliable.

Great game. +10 points for bringing a spartan. +50 points for the Rocky Horror reference ๐Ÿ™‚ I picked up a Spartan for my Space Wolves recently, such a great model. Could really do with some actual ‘new’ landraider rules to bring it up to speed rules wise (as with most of Imperial Armour) but lovely to see you guys running one, (and it looks great in hazard stripes!)

40k is not 40k without gun and vehicle sound effects… I wonder if we would ever get a secondary points for that? ๐Ÿ˜‰

The sheer joy you both demonstrate during this game really highlights the hobby at its best. In any game, both players should aim to have fun whatever the outcome, which is easier said than done.

Commented on the YouTube side of it before finishing the bat rep, but is was sad to watch (as a DA player myself) seeing the stormshield rules being missed. Bard could have been much more effective and survivable. But I love the energy and attitude they both bring regardless of missed rules, it’s so fun to watch and feel a part of!

Always love the energy and enthusiasm, you kill me picking up 3โ€™s as wounds against Deathwing and forgetting the 1 armour save shields give. This must have happened 3-4 times throughout the course of the game. ๐Ÿ˜…

I’m a competitive player (not “that guy” instead a loving 21yo lad who makes pew pew during tournament matches) and watching these videos makes me a bit disappointed because I’m not able to play like Beard and Bard anymore. Although they keep forgetting a billion rules everytime, they have fun, scream and always make a mess which I truly love seeing anytime I can. The best in this direction was Mr. Bone, how many laughs… Never stop enjoying yourselves like this guys, you are fantastic!

That was a fun game! The Spartan had me thinking about one of the gripes I still have with how GW does things. All things considered I think they made huge steps forward in the last few months, both in balancing the game and finally speaking to the community, but when they change things that go across multiple codices they almost never take steps to make things equal and reasonable. To mention a few: Demon Princes for DG, TS and chaos marines have slightly different points and rules, vehicles have different stats and weapons between Loyalists and Chaos, and the… Read more ยป

Some say, if you listen closely on a quiet night, you can hear
Bard whispering “wounds on fours” softly on the wind.
