Independent Characters’ Live Bat Rep Using Reecius’ Footdar List

Video streaming by Ustream

The Independent Characters have posted a cool Bat Rep using my Footdar list from Adepticon. The report’s a bit long, but you get to see the entire game develop as if you were playing it.

      Yeah, but them there’s the breaks. It is a super cool format though, I think it has a ton of potential.

      Yeah, we are definitely going to have to utilize this format ourselves. I think there is a ton that could be done with it.

    I know you guys have been super busy but what happened to all the batreps you guys had been doing!? I know it had a pretty solid following of viewers you should bring em back. Also trying some of these non edited ‘live batreps’ would be really good to see when its top tier players playing/play testing competitive lists. Hope to see something soon! GL

      Hey Ben,

      Yeah, we have fallen off with the bat reps, but we have started filming again now that Adepticon is behind us. We are editing them now and you should be seeing 1-2 Bat reps a week again like we used to have. We just got crazy busy with work and tournaments and such.

      We really want to try out that overhead cam system. I think there is a ton of potential there for some really, really informative bat reps to help people get better at the game.

    couple suggestions if I may if you do decide to try that style of filming (which i agree has great potential)

    The overhead shot is fantastic for a view of the field but results in a very dull video if left there for extended periods of time. Perhaps use an overhead shot at the beginging/end of turns and/or during movement?

    The side shot was neat as it let us see quite a few of the models ( which, apart from vehicles, dont show up too well with the overhead view ) but it only showed a single side of the table and as mentioned in the video itself another view from the opposite side would be great!

    Always love seeing the footdar in action,and I dig the BOLS posts
    Keep up the good work bro.


    Get some wraithguard allready! 😛

      Wraithguard are a HUGE point sink, if taken as troops, costing as much if not more than most deathstar units. I think the best tactic if you take them in footdar is have them be troops in reserve to hold a home base objective or have them contest several objectives last round using unit coherency by running them every round until theyre in range to wreck armor. Then again, this is coming from a 4th edition ex eldar player so take with a grain of salt.

        Wraithguard should be on the table, they are so hard to kill and they can do some work. I think reserving them is probably not the best use of them.

    This was really set up as a last minute kind of thing this time. I’ve been working on making the filming system a bit less intrusive, and so it doesn’t take over my entire gaming room. Now I have a good system in place. Next time we will add the third camera and hopefully have a director (someone controlling the system instead of the people playing trying to do it and play), and the results will be more like what we did at Adepticon.

    wraithguard are mobile cover, a threat bubble that cannot be ignored, a rock hard T6 fearless bodyguard for eldrad, and a huge fire sponge. These guys need to be out front supported by fortune and conceal.. not sitting in reserve like a squad of jetbikes waiting to sit on an objective >_<
