Tonight’s Live Stream: Space Wolves vs. Crimson Fists!

We’ve got a great battle planned for tonight: Frankie’s “Thunderdome” Space Wolves vs. Pablo’s “Sternspam” Crimson Fists! Watch the game on our Twitch Channel!

It was going to be Reecius’ TAC Eldar list but, Reecius caught the crud and is on the IR list, sick with a mega sore throat. Pablo was nice enough to jump in to cover for him.

    Bad luck Pablo!
    Was awesome to see the two battles though.

    For anyone stuck on mobile, the latest version of twitch allows you to access stored videos. So no need to wait for youtube any longer!

    Hey Frankie, I think the WG Battle Leaders have to pay premium for their Storm Shields (25 instead of 15 points), so their overall cost should be 175 points not 165.

    During the stream, you mentioned that leadership and psychic defense were your two biggest concerns with the list. Have you tried swapping the 4 WGBLs for 2 rune priests with runic armor and force axes on bikes along with 2 wolf lords with powerfist/storm shield?

    With this change, you get LD 10 and deny on a 5+ along with some possibly useful psychic buffs. You lose out on 4 base powerfist attacks per WGBL but gain 1 back per wolf lord (so net loss of 6 str 10 fists) and exchange it for 6 str 5 AP2 force attacks (at higher WS). Assuming you get force off, you are almost as killy as the STR 10 on any non-vehicle model.

    Just a thought. Keep up the great work on the stream!

      Err make that deny on a 4+ (adamantium will and being a psyker)

        How do you get that Adamantium Will?

          The runic weapons of space wolf rune priests give them adamantium will (it’s called “Ward” on the weapon).

    Rules query: when you look out sir, is the cover save for the guys getting in the way the same as the cover save for the character being saved?

    It looked like you were not playing it that way, has it changed since 7th?

    Don’t think Pedro could have charged on the last round of the first game since he had been forced out of the rhino previously…

    Love Pablo’s optimism!!!

    Fun games guys!

    Also I didn’t think you could ally with the same faction eg. Crimson Fist / Crimson Fist?

      Per the book, no, but we allow it in the ITC as not every army has multiple detachments available to it, yet.
