Just a quick one, hit rolls modifiers are still capped at +/-1, so a hammerhead can only hit on 3’s, no matter how many buffs it has! Love your stuff guys, but with such a big gun that one really sticks out.

This battle had me laughing so much. Such a fun game with so many epic moments!

Loving the bigger battles and smart move to restrict the points on the table at a time. But you really need a larger table for your bigger games to give them the justice they deserve. Love it though

I love all your batreps, but this one was something special. Hilarious, crazy and I love the production of the videos. I was tired after watching and laughing through this whole video.

Oh also. Can we take a moment to appreciate that green knight paint job?! BY THE EMPEROR is that one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in a while!

I’m loving this style of battle report. Please do more of these semi narratives. 🖤

Also apologies for the weird live stream message yesterday. The nerve block went to my head a bit 😂

Nice report, liking the large scale battles. BTW post the reveal stream, fixed the AdMech

Okay so it’s not Taros, but in this instance I can make an exception.

Beard “ the bane blade cannon doesn’t hit on threes does it? No it doesn’t “ proceeds to pick up threes as hits immediately after…

another super funny custom mission battrep.
Really love your creativity.

Also that game had the best Beard rolls I ever saw since following them starting 8th edition xD

Poor Sultan lol. A great game, massively entertaining! Always love these cool narrative giant games. Hoping for giant point games like this for AOS!

That was an absolutely hilarious game! Easily one of the best you’ve had in ages.

In general, I’m loving the bigger battle reports! The 3K games are huge and tons of fun! You’re making me want to play an Onslaught game with friends sometime soon!

Always here to see the tau. Was a fun game and nice to see kauyon actually work. Stormsurge was a nice surpise but WOW that was a perfect example of how utterly worthless Riptides are. You would have been better of ditching them for some commanders and a couple of crisis teams or some broadsides Bard. Aside from that was fun enough. Not convinced the battlesuits have enough punch to their weapons honestly to deal with tanks and considering thats the main go to this edition thats not encouraging.

Loved it! Narrative games make for a fantastic watch.

I don’t think the stormsurge should have done so much damage in turn 3, you’re +1 bs for the guided target and -1 bs for unguided targets with the split fire. Other than that this is the most fun game I think I’ve ever seen!!

Since this is on YouTube as well was this supposed to be a “free” Saturday batrep but it just got delayed? Or are there no more Saturday batreps?

Have you dropped making AOS BR altogether? :-). Love your chemistry, but miss the AOS angle.

Absolute mayhem! Seemed like every turn was trying to outdo the previous one in sheer carnage. Although it really is sad that tank-tossing was removed from Knights. That was the only thing that could have made this better.

I literally just said on the live feed how great your BatReps have been recently! This game exactly encapsulates what I was referring to: an epic spectacle, engaging narrative flavour, and above all, a huge amount of fun!

Awesome stuff. 🙏🏼
