    Awesome stuff. I was wondering when this one would come out

    • Reecius January 14, 2015 7:06 pm #

      Yeah, still room for improvement, but, this is easily the best video we’ve done!

      • dr.insanotron January 14, 2015 7:31 pm #

        Are they interested in doing more?

        • Reecius January 14, 2015 7:32 pm #

          Unfortunately Rev3 went out of business, but, the editor, Max (guy in the video with us) wants to do more, and we’re investing in some pro level equipment to make more like this.

            Awesome news about the equipment! Looking forward to seeing the results of that!

            That is so awesome. I really loved this video too… Your bat-reps are so entertaining and what you choose to focus on with both commentary/camera time is what really sets your bat-reps apart from the others. New equipment is really gonna take it to the next level… so excited.

          • Reecius January 15, 2015 1:13 pm

            Yeah, the new equipment will make a huge difference! We’re very excited for it.

    Awesome game! I really enjoyed it! I too think “old” Reece had it in the bag, hehe

    • Reecius January 14, 2015 7:07 pm #

      Haha, I get so much crap for being the oldest and I’m not even that old =P

      But yeah, we totally had that game in the bag!

        Start rocking a walking cane (you don’t need to pretend to use it when you walk), and whip the back of their legs with it, if they call you old. Then if they threaten you, say “you wouldn’t hit an old man, would you?”.

        They can continue to call you old, as long as they continue to take the beatings without retaliation? Once they retaliate, they have to give it a rest. 😛

    Reece haven’t you learned to turn the camera off during the sieze roll lol,

    Plus the black shirt looks way better then our grey one

    • Reecius January 15, 2015 1:03 pm #

      Yeah, the Black Shirts really are better, and haha, no, haven’t learned my lesson on the seize yet!

    This is super high quality. I’m sure it took forever to edit and such, so I don’t expect this all the time, but…wow.

    • fluger January 14, 2015 8:24 pm #

      Also, lol at the shit talking about you Reece!

      • Reecius January 15, 2015 1:04 pm #

        Yeah, i get it from these hooligans all the time! Haha, but we are striving to make this the standard of quality for our videos going forward.

    Great video. Really dug the professional quality. Keep it up.


  6. Blightstar January 15, 2015 5:30 am #

    Haha Frankie looks so awkward in the preview pic like he hasnt got a clue what do with his hands hahaha 😀

    • Reecius January 15, 2015 1:11 pm #

      Haha, we all felt a little stiff on camera but loosened up as we went!

    This was a cool report! I like the classic reports too…
    ..and good job sneaking in a penis joke.

    I thought maybe the bright lights might curtail the madness a bit.. good to see it still slipped through.

    I miss Steel Panther playing in the background though..

    • Reecius January 15, 2015 1:12 pm #

      Haha, we do have to bring back a good old Steel Panther bat rep!

  8. Thomas January 15, 2015 7:23 am #

    I really liked this report. Good fun with some live action. A tad long though.

    The amries was a bit too large for Max, I think, you could see how he struggled to keep up. 1000 pts would have been better for learning the game.

    • Reecius January 15, 2015 1:12 pm #

      Yeah, smaller would have been better and we would have finished the game, too! haha

      • Thomas January 15, 2015 10:49 pm #

        Yeah, playing the game until the end is quite important, especially when it comes to the tactical aspect of the game. Scoring and denying.

  9. Rob January 15, 2015 1:56 pm #

    I miss the bus during a critical turn

  10. Alex January 15, 2015 5:37 pm #

    Any chance pics of the armies are online anywhere?

  11. Asmeralda January 15, 2015 9:15 pm #

    Great bat rep. The quality was very good and you guys did a good job explaining phases to Max. Reece do not feel bad about your age. This month marks my 25th year playing Warhammer 40k since 1st edition. There are many old war horses out there like me that will make you feel young. Game on!

    Awesome – I love these longer format battle reports but I’ve never seen people who can play the game competitively make them. They usually are more hobby oriented.

    One thing I really like about Skari’s battle reports is he shows the movement phase in more detail (time lapse). I think that really helps you understand what is going on and the strategy even if not every dice roll makes the cut.

    If anyone was wondering if the Imperial Fist army is for sale, IT TOTALLY IS. If you are interested email me painting@frontlinegaming.org
