      No they do not, but there is a good chance we will be making something like that, very soon!

    Looks like you were treating puppet master as a malediction? Its a focused witchfire so you have to assault what you cast puppet master on. Great batrep though as always.

      I was just about to say the same thing, it is a great power but has its limitations

      Yes I did, my mistake! Sorry for the confusion.

        Yeah, I don’t think you remembered to roll-to-hit with it either.. As you would have needed 2 6’s.. Not likely.

        You’d also have to hit the Storm Raven with a snapshot for the power to work unless the shooter has skyfire.

          Very true, playing it as a malediction was WAY better than it should have been, haha.

    Can we please go back to the rock and roll guitar riff intro? I grew to associate that sound with epic battle!

      Also, I may be alone here, but I like the reports better without the sit-downs. They just add extra time to the report for you to repeat what you said while standing up.

        The large majority of folks say they like but some folks think they’re redundant. I think it depends on how experienced you are as a player on a personal level as you already know why players are doing what they do, less experienced players benefit a lot from the extra explanation.

    Great report Reece I thought RawDogger played pretty well except for putting his scout squad in the face of an entire Tyranid army but those mistakes will be quickly learned from. Good to see your Nids on the table again!

    Great report, but I’m giving the win to Jason. He would’ve won if you’d played your psychic powers correctly.

      Fair enough, that did have a big impact. However, I also totally forgot to drop in the Doom! hahah, so that would have been a big swing, too.

        I just really want Jason to get a win against you! He needs the confidence boost.. Hahaha. Yeah.. Doom is kind of ok against MEQ..

    I think he might have been better off sticking a unit in the storm raven, with out Reece’s shenanigans, the storm raven would have been able to whisk a unit off to an objective.

      Yeah, that scout unit would’ve fit nicely in there.

      He should have killed Swarmlord, too, his dice just shit on him.
