    Once that Covenant fleet releases, you can guarantee there will be at least one L3 commission request headed your way.

    That Necron List pays a tax of 20 warriors and extra overlord for no benefit. Pull that out, add more wraiths. 3 Wraiths are killable, 5-6, not so much so. I’ve noticed a huge difference in the effectiveness of 3 Wraiths vs 6.

    With the Decurion Detachment, those beasts can get a 4+++ RP roll. 3++/4+++ T5 W2… sick.

    Genuinely curious why the warriors and overlord are considered to be a tax by so many players with a 4+ Sv followed by a 4+ RP roll rerolling 1’s and guns that can hurt anything within 24”. Sit in cover on different levels next to an objective and see how much firepower it takes to shift them. Overlord without scythe or res orb is probably a waste . Is it a Tournament thing ? Not disagreeing as not a regular Tournament player just curious

    It’s a sad day when Frankie gets the pronounciation of Barrie right and Reece is way off base.

    I don’t understand the point of the second reclamation legion in that list. There is room in the first legion for the 2 warriors and immortal squad of the second legion, you would only loose out on 1 min squad tomb blades, which you could split up to beef the other 3 squads and the overlord with no upgrades who adds nothing to the list. By just removing the “tax” overlord he could add 2 more wraiths. Or use the points from the extra tomb blade squad and overlord to field an additional night scythe to help with the lack of fire power problem.

        You said you never play video games several times on the podcast and in person. After ever quest you said you dont.
        Now you are telling me you do?

          I just rarely ever play them. Like, once or twice a year. I used to love them.

    The ship design in halo is pretty good, but is there really a huge range of ships available to support a game in an ongoing way? I’m just interested, as it will be up against firestorm armada, starwars armada, and dropfleet commander zone 😛 Going to be a great year for space combat junkies.

    It’s a pity that firestorm never appealed to me.

    Well poop, i thought i had some of this stuff figured out. Wouldn’t all those Canoptic Harvests each be a detachment and so by current standard for ITC not playable?
