    1. I like the soft porn intro music.
    2. Its cool that you brought Imperial Guard allies.
    3. Israel uses his tenuous grasp of the English language to trick people.

    I appreciate that you guys offer competitive batreps that are well explained/analyzed. That’s in short supply out there.

    It’s the difference between the experience of watching little league and major league.

      Thanks! That was a really nice thing to say, we appreciate it.

        Totally agree, MWG stuff is well edited etc but FLG is the place to see tactics.

        (P.S. especially as you’re now running a list very close to my own – I’ve been trying to explain about Dissy Ravagers for ages, I’ve had people laugh that magnetising the guns on mine was a waste of time as I should always go DL)

        Similar to fighting Tau where I tend to ignore the Riptide I reckon Israel needed to fight the instinct to throw everything at the big dog, I love it when my opponent throws his whole army at mine.

          Thanks! Yeah, we’re always trying to improve the quality of the videos but I am glad you appreciate the tactics as that is something that we have built up over a lot of practice.

          I through the Wraithknight up there as bait, I am glad Israel took it. He didn’t have a lot of choice though, really, as it would have smashed his Baordsides next turn. It is great for that, though.

    Thanks for the Bat reps, I learn so much, the most important is not to give up if you encounter your hard counter, and to play the game, not the army.
    Although, w/o barrage tau behind an ADL are brutal, have them GTG for a 2+ cover. But even then if they are taking aun’va they get right back up.

      The most important thing to learn from our bat reps is, “when in doubt blame the dice.”

    Thanks to learning from your eldar bat reps, I tabled my opponent in turn 4 today. A good start considering it was my first game ever.

      First game of 40K or with Eldar? That is pretty impressive either way!

      Thank you, sir! It took some learning, the first game against Tau felt like getting cold-clocked, but this time I think I figured out the right order of operations for taking out their key units. FIrst turn was critical, too. I need to come up with a sound strategy for going second as I got owned by Tau when they seized on me.
