    Nice bat rep but its kind of dark on this map :/

    Nice short rep! 🙂

    Some (hopefully useful) feedback, as I see this one was quite innovative: the “UI” (in lack of a better word) looks great! With the little name tags, small “player cam” at the bottom right while talking through the lists, and the round turn-counter. Small things, but they really make the video look nice and professional.

    The background music was cool as well, but a bit too loud while the players spoke (specially at the beginning).

    I’m curious as to whether the riptide that died was from the wing or if it was the lone one.

    • Dakkath April 21, 2016 1:32 pm #

      Actually, now that I think about it, I’m curious why you didn’t just make that riptide part of the wing by making one of the riptide units a squad of 2.

      • AbusePuppy April 21, 2016 1:39 pm #

        It’s definitely an option, but especially in a list with so few units to start with I would be hesitant to lose yet another one. Being on its own means that the pair of them are less of a target for “heavy” shooting (such as Grav Cents, etc) and can maneuver individually, which makes the army more flexible overall.

    This was really awesome! I loved the culexus staring down the stormsurge shot.

    • Karaghul April 21, 2016 2:32 pm #

      Yeah, that shot was lovely!

      Yeah, that was all Mariana! She’s getting better at these for sure.

        +1, sound and video quality over the last year has continually improved.

          It’s been a challenge but we’re getting better. Thanks for the feedback!

    Really great batrep, loved the armies and the style (and the time!) of this one — more please!

    Great batrep and nice production quality!

    Sidenote: It would be nice with a small post game discussion after these short videos. Perhaps something like if any of them would have done things differently or maybe missed opportunities. Perhaps the marines should have played more cagey/defensive since a turn 1 alpha was not possible. Did the riptides go for 3++ early game?

      Thanks for the feedback and I agree, a short recap at the end would be great.

    If you are running a riptide in a CAD, why not use a Yvara?

      Good point, DooDoo, I’d take that, too.

    Always a fan of the short forms!

    Really liked this format
    Especially the fast play of the movement phase

    Moar!!
