**NEW CODEX!!** Tyranids vs Astra Militarum | Warhammer 40k Battle Report

The first Codex of 10th Edition has arrived with a bang as we bring every single Tyranid from the TT Hive Fleet to face off against the Astra Militarum! 6000 points on the table, but will Bard be able to hold back the unending waves of Xenos, or will Jinx succeed in her mission to consume all of the biomass??

Amazing game as always, I love watching these. I just wanted to comment on the paint scheme for the tyranids. Fletcher has reeeeeeally outdone himself and they are jaw droppingly gorgeous. They look like what might have happened if the nids consumed the Flesh Tearers and evolved to incorporate their traits. They look so good.

Btw James…the Heavy Bolters on the Baneblade are twin-linked. Might have helped you a few times. 😀

I was right on IG about the onslaught… What a narrative again !! The new Nid range is awesome, one of the best looking army ever.
Amazing one for a first onslaught on the channel (as far as I remember). Cheers !

I always feel for James. He could hit on 2’s rerolling and still miss half. Reminds me of ‘Try again’ Bragg from the gaunts ghosts. Missing every shot haha.

New name suggested for the lackluster Baneblade – Careless Whisper.

Not much to add to the previous commenters, but it was a great game indeed. Looking forward to the next one vs the Flesh Tearers 👍

What an epic battle report! Always fun to see skewed missions with a strong narrative and this was no exception. So many epic moments – the Emissary-Baneblade showdown was worth it all in its own. (And yes – the Baneblsde must henceforth be known as Thunderchild – love a War of the World’s reference).

Absolutely love you guys and your infectious positivity. Can’t wait for the rest of Tark week!

Fantastic game and setup. Poor James rolling so many 1s (again) :P.
Also, incredible paint job on those Tyranid models. Add an additional leash to Fletcher so he does not run away 😀

This would have been truly epic on a bigger board, it all felt a bit crammed in, but was still great fun to watch regardless. James as always made this game for me, amazed at his constant positivity in the face of some horrendous luck, well played sir.

Really fun game, great to see something more narrative/different for a new codex game! The Guard were really up against it this time though, poor men. Rules question: what do you base the “everything happens at the same time” ruling on? As far as I see in the rules, shooting attacks are resolved one at a time. So you can kill the bodyguard unit and then have any remaining attacks be allocated to a Leader, without that leader benefiting from any “whilst it leads a unit” rules as the bodyguard unit is dead by then. Curious to see if I… Read more »

Team this is absolutely glorious! The narrative mission (as you said on the podcast) just adds that extra element of fun. Also the overhead camera shot of the entire movement phase is 👌🏻

Sorry, wish I could watch and the faction focused but until I get the codex it’s going to spoil it…dam

Amazing love to see some real and fantastic hobby action these over competitive days. Made my evening…please tell me this is a new kick off to a narrative story?!!
And that paint job…cant even find words its gorgeous.

Good fun! Nice game, suitably cinematic, tense! Jinx, you must be delighted with the lurvly new toys; James, glad you got to use Baney McBladeface!
I greatly appreciated seeing the full (sped-up) movement occur via the overhead cam, minus any dialogue. I hope this is a feature you utilize in all subsequent games (if you have been doing so in other videos, I’m sorry that it didn’t register until this one), it significantly enhances the flow of the game for me.

Yay for new Nids! Looking forward to get my big bugs, too.

Still I am happy that Jamie Hyneman made it out alive.

@TabletopTactics – Might be the wrong place but didn’t know where else to put it it.

With the return of cast of players have you considered doing a deathwatch campaign?
