    Really liked this BR. The level of shit-talking to start was pretty good (whatever a moon worm is),and it ended in a really solid, close game. The best kind of report for sure!

    Fun to watch. Y’all keep getting better.

      Between Geoff being naturally funny and Mariana’s editing skillz, I agree, the videos have gotten much better.

      • iNcontroL February 20, 2018 7:28 pm #

        you forgot to mention your natural good looks and charms sir 🙂

    Awesome video. I love the little snarky animation making fun of the dialog. Great job. I am intrigued with Custodus, but might consider replacing the bike unit with 9 more Custodus foot. It seems that 4 Assassins and 3 shield captains on bike are enough of a forward assault threat that those 9 extra Custodus Guard would make it across the table to act as sweepers.

      Glad you enjoyed it!

      I agree that the Custodes troopers should hard charge up the table, too. However, I slowed one unit down with the T-Fire cannon for most of the game which was super useful, keeping them out of play.

    Good batrep, however I miss the long format and side cameras. I despise the overhead view… can’t follow and I like to see the mini’s

    • Reecius
      Reecius February 21, 2018 3:44 pm #

      We get in full length games when we can, it just takes a lot more staff to make them happen.

  5. Don Tomaso February 20, 2018 10:49 pm #

    Custodes are so incredibly fun to use that it feels like I´m trying out this game for the first time again every time I use them.

    This time geedub really managed to make a helluva fun codex and when reading in depth all the strategems, unts and relics one sees that a lot of thought and effort went into this codex.

    More of this in the future I say!

    • Reecius
      Reecius February 21, 2018 3:45 pm #

      Glad you like it! And yeah, we will try to keep pumping out the video bat reps, just been busy, busy lately.

    I just wanted to say that I enjoyed this BR, even though I miss aspects like ‘The Salt Cam.’

    Reece, I already have an Orks army (awaiting Codex), a Catachan Militarum army allied with Blood Angels, & was eyeing a Dreadnought-focused Sons of Medusa army, but a Scout-heavy Raptors army seems like a good combo of meta & fluff, especially with like an urban camo scheme. It’s a shame though that there are no broadly effective sniper units to use (Tac Marines can take snipers in 30K, right??)

    By the by; do you typicallu spend a CP on your Jump Captain to get him The Shield Eternal???

    • Reecius
      Reecius February 21, 2018 3:56 pm #

      Glad you liked it and yes, I typically spend the CP to get the Shield Eternal.

    This battle report format is excellent.Love the players talking about the armies and turn summaries with the occasional pans across the table.
    Quick, concise, funny.

    Really fun watch, these just keep getting better.

    Only problem is that now I want to do a Custodes/Guard army (might have to go Vostroyans, not the best company rules but can’t say no to more gold).

    • Kingpin February 21, 2018 8:22 am #

      Vostroyans next to Custodes would look awesome.

  9. Zool February 21, 2018 9:40 am #

    Could we see some primaris in future games ?

    The intercessors are 18 points now compared to 13 for tactical. Gain 1+ wound, 1+ atack and stock bolters which are also the best have rapid fire 1 range 30″ and -1 AP.
    And for 1 point a 5 man unit can have 30″ grenade launcher. Thats hell of a upgrade for +5 points per unit.

    • Zool February 21, 2018 9:40 am #

      I mean model not unit.

    • Doty February 21, 2018 11:02 pm #

      are the aux. ‘nade launcher bits included in the full build sets? I didn’t see any modeled among the start set ETB Intercessors, unless I’m selectively blind . . .

      • Zool February 22, 2018 8:39 am #

        They almost look like the normal bolt rifle just have a short grenade launcher mounted under the main barrel and have also spare grenades.
        The 2 sprues have 5 stand alone bolt weapons in 2 hands, 1 auxiliary grenade launcher version bolt rifle in 2 hands, and also have 2 bolt rifle in one hand and one bolt rifle hanging on rifle sling.
        U could miss the grenade launcher with 9 combinations.

          Reecius February 22, 2018 11:07 am #

          Once we get the Primaris Project back on track, that will happen for sure.

  10. JP February 21, 2018 1:56 pm #

    Awesome report guys! Thia format is quite enjoyable and the editing brings up a lot of the humorous banter you usually hear around a 40k table.

    Really happy to see Raptors kicking butts in 8th. I can’t play as much as I would to nowadays, so it’s nice to see my Chapter of choice doing well, clawing their way out of defeat at the last minute.
    Good job Reece!

    • Reecius
      Reecius February 21, 2018 2:15 pm #

      Yeah, the Raptors are one of the best ways to play Space Marines, IMO, if not the best.

      Glad you enjoyed it!

      • JP February 22, 2018 8:01 am #

        Out of curiosity, how would you adapt the list in a tournament that does not allow FW? Stick to Raven Guard and use SftS instead of Lias’ ambush ability?

        • Reecius
          Reecius February 22, 2018 11:07 am #

          Ah, it is a LOT less effective that way, honestly. It would take a lot of changes to make it work without Lias.

  11. Lthurston February 21, 2018 8:24 pm #

    Primaris Psyker is 46 points after chapter approved. 38 + 8
    Also you can’t give relics to the Custodes unless your army is led by a Custodes Warlord and if you do that you can’t have a militarum warlord re rolling all those command points? I hope I am wrong I am working on some Custodes to run with my Guard.

    • iNcontroL February 23, 2018 8:56 am #

      correct on the psycher incorrect on the relics.. you can pay for them. However I took 3 when you can only take 2 additional ones.

  12. Zool February 22, 2018 11:40 am #

    The poor guards cant do anything against 2 armor save and -1 hit from raven guard chapter tactics. They were quite useless.
    The chapter tactics was the -1 hit raven guard ? Its not written in the list and i didnt catch it in the video either.

    • Reecius
      Reecius February 22, 2018 1:24 pm #

      Yeah, the Raptors have Raven Guard CTs for the -1 to hit outside of 12″.

  13. Zool February 22, 2018 12:25 pm #

    How hilarious would be the same raptor castle against noise marines. They have the same rule as the chapter banner just 100 percent and no dice rolls. And noise weapons are immune to cover.
    Endless chain of shooting phase :). U kill models, they kill models.

    • Reecius
      Reecius February 22, 2018 1:23 pm #

      I have had almost that exact scenario play out, before, lol. When two Marine players have banners and you just take turns killing one another, it is comedy gold, lol.

  14. Don Tomaso February 22, 2018 9:24 pm #

    Anyone tried out the magnifica vexilla added to a raven guard gunline army for a -2 to hit?

    Would this even be allowed? I havent read up on the latests faqs.

    • abusepuppy February 22, 2018 10:05 pm #

      The Magnifica only affects Custodes units.

  15. Don Tomaso February 22, 2018 10:14 pm #

    I missed that one, thanks.

    I suspected this would be to good, good that it doesnt affect RG.

  16. Konrad Bartkiewicz February 23, 2018 2:19 am #

    Great game lads. Hopefully you and I have a similar game at the London invitational Reece 😉

    • Reecius
      Reecius February 23, 2018 8:46 am #

      Are we playing at the invitational, Konrad?

      • Konrad Bartkiewicz February 24, 2018 12:56 pm #

        I’ll get Zack to rig it lol
