Best 30k video yet! Don't be afraid to mix 40k and 30k, the stigma is unwarranted

Normally I hate when people tone down lists intentionally (the munchkin in me always wants the best of the best) but here, this whole batrep was SO damn good, SO close I cant but admire the quality of the rep, really! Amazing job best rep in months

Loving these Hersey batreps guys. The day that Dark Angels/ World Eaters and hopefully Solar Auxallia make an appearance will be happy day for me indeed!

Mat Praetors have 4 base attacks not 5. So on the charge and with Digital Lasers, you have 6 attacks.

Remember when Forge World caused people to panic and flee in fear? Hard to believe we've gotten to the point where Forge World units are considered a NERF in comparison to what's in the codex.

I'm not to found about 30k but this was fun to watch. I really like that you are doing so much dual producers battles now.

Psych, they don't have fleet. Carry on.

Flayed ones have fleet, Steve! That could've helped when they were trudging over that terrain

First, I just want to express my excitement at seeing some quality 30k battle reports. I'm a huge fan of the heresy and I've enjoyed every 40k batrep so far. Second, I'm even more excited to see some 40k xenos fighting the legions! As there is precedence for it, and you came up with a quick and effective narrative, it made for a fun and characterful game. It was a bold and rewarding decision to do so in the second batch of heresy games! Keep it going! I would love to see Matt's tyranids vs a legion. As tyranids, I believe, are the most dangerous xenos in the 40k universe, it would be interesting to see them go up against the might of a legion!

Awesome batrep!
About the rule 'Fury of the Legion': I think you have to resolve first one shooting and then shoot again. It can be important because, after the first shooting, you can end up with less models on rapid fire range after removing the casualties (so, less shots on the second shooting).

As a fellow Salamanders player I loved this Batrep!! Thank you for your very in depth descriptions Matt in the army selection I really like to know how you think about building the army you are going to field!

Hey Matt,

As a noob in 40k I write out my list and then add on any special rules & names of things so when I go through my list with my opponent then know exactly what I have. From a quality perspective it might be great to do this so when explaining what you got it is slick and professional. Would help to remember all the rules too, a cheat sheet to have on the side somewhere to refresh everyones memory, just a thought man, keep up the good work.

Small rule error I noticed at 57:20. The sentinel was 9" away and Matt threw a krak grenade in overwatch, which would be out of range.

TonarinTau (Over a year ago): - delete
Matt your warden should have died back in the first combat with the monster creature. He was in base contact, you took a model from the back with out rolling the look out sir. This would have mean the monster creature would have been back at 4 wounds by the time the terminators got there. That plus the earlier comment about the amount of attacks you get on the Praetor might have meant Steve would have attacked the Terminators and not the bob from the pyroclast unit.
