    Great game buddy. I enjoyed it

      BigPig I’m curious, why didn’t you pop Tactical Doctrine turn 1? That would have twin linked all your Tacticals in the shooting and assault and given the Ironclad re-rolls of 1s to hit in the assault phase.

        Cuz I was playing fast and comepletely forgot about doctrines all game. Brain fart, no excuse. Haven’t played since bao so just a hint of rust. I don’t think it would have mattered. Salamanders already benefit from a lot of shooting rerolls, but every bit in combat helps. As i recall the ironclad hit, no ones, and the tacs already reroll the meltas…… not that it mattered lol.

        No excuse though. Just sloppy play.

          I thought it missed one but I’m probably wrong. Well there were several times when you were shooting bolters that the re-rolls could have helped.

            Agreed. Every little bit helps. Total brain fade. Its the stress of being in thunderdome

        Forgot my ironclad launchers too

          I thought those just gave you assault grenades which wouldn’t have mattered since he didn’t assault.

            Gives defensive grenades too as I recall. Would need to double check it. Could have mattered such all his guys would have lost an attack

      Great game as always! You are an awesome opponent. I squeaked it out there in the end, got lucky!

      It’s a long running, very bad habit of mine. I try my best to hold it in, but when I am stressed during a tough game, it comes out. I know it’s annoying and I hate that I do it, but it comes out.

      The funny thing is, when I am in that state, I am actually the most engaged in the game and enjoying myself the most! lol

        I do it too. Competitve people get serious and focused. I have to work to make sure I don’t come across as an ass sometimes. For me it’s worst when I have a bad match up with very little chance of winning before even deploying.

    I didn’t get to see the end of the game. Did Reece ever remember the tankbustas rule where they give you a bonus vp for tagging a vehicle for first blood?

      I won the game by the skin of my nuts and no, I forgot about that bonus! Would have gone to maelstrom but I won that anyway, by a single point.

    Great game Reece! A couple of things I noticed was you forgot the maelstrom point for getting first blood with the tankbustas and I think you forgot the mob rule all game long. I think there were a couple of times it could’ve helped you when you lost combat.

      Mob Rule would have helped me a few times, although most of my units were under 10 Orks and did not have a Character, so it would have taken a 1 to stick, but, you are right, it could have mattered. Also, I did indeed forget about the bonus VP for the Tank Bustas.

    Hi just had a chance to watch this. Noticed that Vince mentioned a number of times that Vulkan twin-links melta. Unfortunately they changed it in the 7ed dex. He grants master-crafted instead which was quite the nerf imo (especially against flyers). Edition hangover I am sure. Still a cool battle.

      Gah nevermind. For somereason thought Master Craft was reroll 1s (doh!) instead of reroll 1 miss from the weapon. My bad!

    Vince, those “mole-drill-machines” you use as Drop Pods, where do you got your hands on those? They look good! 😀
