Matt is 6'2" I think, so John must be about 6'4". Owen is 18'6".

Use my house rule.
If you decide to try and seize, then a roll of 6 is the same. A roll of 1 means you don't seize AND your units cannot run or assault in addition to all your units on the table counts as having moved, even if they remained stationary (only lasts for turn 1).
Another variant I've played is that a roll of 1 when trying to seize results in your units requiring to do a leadership test to perform any action during turn 1.

this is a moot point by now but the doom doesn't stop at 10 wounds unless that was faq. because rulebook pg.2 under modifiers says that only wounds and attacks can be raised above 10

With the new Tyranid Codex missing the Mycetic spore, you should use it in games as special terrain that uses it's shooting attack at the closest unit.

D strength weapons in a non apoc game is the biggest cheese since Matt Wards hissy fit about not being able to Rez the ultra marines primarch led to the creation of the Grey Knights. One mans view,make it your own

@43min 30Sec, again not that it really mattered, but the Termaguant that charged the bloodthirster should not have gained the Furious Charge as you don't benefit from the effects unless you are within range when it is used, it is not used until your Strength comes into play.

@40mins, Fleshbane USR only allows 2 to wound, it does not grant re-rolls, that is shred USR. Not a huge deal and didnt change much at all, but some food for thought.

Wow. This was a really great battle rep. Some very tense moments. And wow, I thought the dice gods hated me, 100 attacks and no wounds?

Good to see you back doing some batreps Matt, I love the enthusiasm and I enjoy seeing this slightly new style. =)

@panzerfart nice idea concerning the often frustrating 'sieze the intiative' rule.
Adding a penalty turns it into something more strategic rather then a potential luck based punishment for choosing to go first.

Thanks Panzerfart!

To find the other LOWs go to the forgeworld download page there is a list of them there

Where in the Escalation rules does it state that you can use other Lords of War than then once in the book? I read it several times and can't find it?!
crptnmcn (3 months ago): - delete
Around 27:28
Yes, the Bloodthirster does cause instant death on wounding rolls of 6 (Axe of Khorne).
petitbilly (3 months ago): - delete
Doesn't Kairos have lower stats than a regular Lord of change? It's refered to as a lord of change though, which would indeed be T6
damienxrt (3 months ago): - delete
the Lord of Change could not have been insta killed by the hierodule,I don't believe,unless his shots cause instant death, the LoC is T6
petitbilly (3 months ago): - delete
@manc3r
Wrong, super heavy walkers and garguantuans can't overwatch. One because the special rules say so, and the other because they are Slow and Purposeful

Does John ever not use the Landing pad?
manc3r (3 months ago): - delete
AH, you could have overwatched against the An'ggrath (i think) at the end. 12 str 10 shots could have made a difference.

Epic 100 attack fail Matt...

I think you did the stomps wrong against the hormagaunts.
You roll for each unit under the marker, not each model. A 6 would mean every model under that marker gets removed, lower means everyone under suffers a S6 hit etc ...

I think John is studying to become a plane pilot (hands in pockets)
