Doesn’t the Baneblade have 4 lascannons?..or am I just a confused old man that remember things wrong?

You guys a great! I played 40k back 4th and 5th edition and loved it. I haven’t played it in years but you guys certainly made me want to play it again. I was wondering if you guys could do a painting tutorial of the Demon Prince model you used in this battle, because it’s stunning and i would love to paint that model, with that style. Shout out to Fletcher!

I felt for you Bard in that first turn. That shooting dice rolling was painful to watch! 😂

Please paint up Lord Solar so Bard can run a decent set of orders.. he’s the only source of decent orders for tanks this edition

I love watching everyone play on tabletop tactics, but I do have to say beard and bard have some of the best on screen chemistry, you guys are great.
Keep up the amazing work.

two things…
First: I want the soundbite of beard saying “Eat my las!” (it’s around the 10 minute mark)… New notification sound for the app maybe? 😀
Second: The cheeky laugh track on “Abba-Dabba-Don’t worry about it” made me laugh pretty hard.

It’s all about the Cow-tipping, awesome batrep.
The fun Beard was having was so powerful is could be felt out of my screen.
And that Daemon Prince is AMAZING!!!!!
Any chance Fletcher could share some of the wizardry he used for that glow emanating from his face holes

Mentioned this before but overwatch doesn’t trigger born soldiers Bard. You have to remain stationary which is a choice that can only be made in your turn.(look at remain stationary in the movement section). Great to see both Guard and new chaos on the table though!
Edit: Also the LRBT can reroll 1s or all hits with all the weapons, not just the cannon.

Looking forward to this one. Hopefully will get to watch it here in a bit.

Quick question…I know those basilisks have been around a long time. Where did y’all source the sandbags? I like the look of those.

What a great game, although all I can really see as a criticism (and it’s not really one of those) is that Havocs are tougher than the regular Marine, and well, are T5. Unless those Rough Riders of Tallarn(!) have some super horsies that are S5, I find it unlikely that they are wounding Havocs, in melee, on 4’s. lol Great to see the new Dex in action, but it’s also great to see the Guard able to trade so effectively with this new dex too, so it’s good to see that GW haven’t gone too crazy I think with… Read more »

Looking forward to this! Me and my mate played a very similar game on Wednesday with all tanks Vs all Terminators (and Abaddon).. it ended up being a bit one sided in the guard’s favour so maybe we should adapt it to this.

New csm looks fantastic. 7/8 detachments are competatively viable and all of the detachments are really fluffy
