Loved this game so much. Shows how great boarding action is!
Would love to see some Harlequin Shenanigans going off on such a small scale!
Bard you need to come down a little, take a deep breath and antianxiety meds
Really enjoy the Boarding Action Battle reports how about Fletchers new Space Wolves vs Thousand sons?!
I’d suggest custodes against daemons just like in the webway ! (Emperor of mankind book)
Epic battle, such a fun game guys, keep up the great work
Can we get maybe CW Vs She who firsts 👀😏
Did Fletcher paint the Fists? We need a Fist Yellow Tutorial.
AoO: Farsight has rules and missions for 2 vs 2 and 3 and 4 player All vs All. Aeldari, Drukhari, IG, and Tau in an All vs. All would be amazing. With all his free time, I hereby decree Beard should create an Ark of Omen Narrative Boarding Patrol Campaign with as many multiplayer games as you guys can fit in. Aeldari (or Tyranids) – Jinx Drukhari, or Orks – Ah, Ah, Ah! IG – Castellan Bard Tau – Faceman Fletcher Chaos Cultists Army or Squats – Beard Ad Mech – Stig Necrons (or GSC) – Chef Leave the Elites… Read more »
Im really interested in seeing how Tau can perform in a board patrol game as it nearly always ends up in combat with little area to manoeuvre around. With farsight, i guess he can carry the mele to a certain extent. I’ve tried to make a few lists without using kroot as I don’t have any just about 3k points of tau. I’d love to see what you guys come up with for an effective Tau boarder patrol game. Im guessing fletcher will use some kroot, a long side farsight, and some crisis. For Tau, you can’t take the onogar… Read more »
black templars vs orks! reincarnate Helbrecht’s boarding actions please.
Would love to see some of the new Aeldari rules in action, I think from the Farsight book? Get Chef to run some harlequins on a mission to stop some ork warboss or brutish monkeigh!
Crimson Fists vs Orks would be a good one
Not sure how the copying works but at the end there, I’m pretty sure Beard could have gotten 90 points:
Identify – 30
1 Unit with copy – 30
2 Units with copy – 30
So if Beard would have gotten those by end of 5th battle round, he could have won and Bard would have been on 80 points as the data would have been found on 5th battle round.
Awesome video, would very much like to see thousand sons Vs space wolves once you have your wolves done:)
Wow. Beard in action, Bard in action in a Boarding Action. Heaven.
Beard, would you do me the honour of explaining the mark of nurgle in laymen’s terms. My buddy has read the rule differently to myself and we need a respected (chaotic…) mediator!!
Excellent game, you two playing is the pinnacle of entertainment!
Drukhari vs Guard or Tau. be interesting to see a slaveing raid in action
Great fun bat rep to watch. Love how Beard just went in for the slaughter and spaced on the mission XD. Matchup i would like to see is Farsight Enclaves vs Orks…….no reason in particular.
Tau vs Orks … close combat butchers vs long range … erm ….. meh.
Eldars vs necrons!
Great and fun battlereport! I love the boarding action battlereports and you seem to have a lot of fun aswell.
Suggestions for future match ups:
Deathwatch Vs Xenos (Orks, tyranids etc)
“Is My Plasma Pistol In Range?!…NO!” XD
Thousand sons v. Space wolves!
That was a ton of fun. Bard and Beard always have fantastic boarding action games.
For grudge matches, could we get Custodes vs. Black Legion, for a shout out to the Watchers of the Throne books? I’d love to see some Allarus Terminators and Witchseekers doing battle aboard a hulk
Space wolves vs 1k sons
is the video not embedded for anyone else?
I really hope you play some 4 player games and asymmetrical matches in the new Farsight book!!!
Blood angels versus leviathan would be great. These games are awesome guys
Flame head the Swedish chef. None of his followers actually understand what he says. 👨🍳
Great game! Fitting for the Iron Warriors to do the killing in their rage against the Fists, but the Imperial Fists hold on with sacrifice and duty! Vashtorr Mission rules did feel a bit anticlimatic, would have liked to see it go that one extra turn and see if the Fists could hold of the coming onslaught, the premise is super cool though with it being hidden, just wish the attacker got a bit more chance to score in a late round, even if it would require more of a climb/luck. Narratively it worked out great though! Absolutely love the… Read more »
Beard and the bard having fun being mortal enemies is guaranteed to be a good time! Really fun battle guys great work!
I love boarding action
Suggestions – As a followe of Grandfather nurgle, here are some death guard rivalry suggestions.
DG Vs Grey Knights (The revenge for Mortarion’s Heart)
DG Vs Ultramarines (Spite of the Plague Wars)
DG Vs Thousand Sons (Rivalry of the Gods)
Loved the game, god I can’t wait to play boarding action myself.
Not sure if its something on my end but I can’t get the link to work.
Brilliant report as always. And your camera work with the extra shot scenes were just perfect 🙂
Boarding action armies are just too tempting to not get some little projects on the side and seeing these reports is really inspiring.
I hope we are going to see a 13th company appearing out of the warp to take on some Thousand ‘I did nothing wrong’ Sons or just plain daemons.
Great game, I love boarding action! For a rivals boarding action game, you could do the classic Space Hulk matchup. Blood Angels Terminators vs. Tyranid Genestealers?
Bard proving that “Imperial Fist” can be a verb ^_^
Blimey! A brilliant Bard/Beard bording batrep? Behold the bloke with the blazing bonse that beggars belief as Bard’s banana bedecked boys blast Beard’s blasphemous battlers! We’re blessed with bountiful bloodshed before brunch!
