Hey Look Overlords! One of my Favorite AoS factions is on the Chanel...Oh playing beast claws that cant be too bad...oh wow I gues well get a better Idea of what they do next time haha

Seriously Josh Beastclaws are Dirty Can you try playing Gutbuster Ogres now that We see how amazing Beastclaws are over...and over..and over

I would love to see Gutbusters in AoS more. They play pretty blunt but I think they would be more "friendly"

As always love your reports!

Seemed like the guy was new to Overlords. Maybe try to match better? A good Overlord player should be able to compete with Beastclaw, but taking them here was just to much.

Also. MORE TERRAIN you can't just pass. Having to go around more stuff would make it harder to just charge in and the defending player could use it to avoid getting surrounded.

This was brutal... starting agains beast claw is kinda hard...


The admiral should have lived, the rules for disembarking from a destroyed boat is the same as 8th 40k so you can choose who dies that was inside.

both frigate and ironclad has the grudgesettler bombs (d3 mortal wound for unit 1'' from it).

so running away from the beast clawsis not an option then... great game still

Having had a look at the comments on YouTube for this video, I am shocked at Josh's responses there. You are making entertaining content, yes this is the free video, but baiting your viewers??

Besides which this Batrep wasn't even entertaining. I did go back and skim it, especially the 17:00 controversy. Yes that's valid and something you would do in a tournament, but really it just made Beastclaws even worse to watch in my opinion. An army that is already beyond ridiculous and boring to watch was made even more tedious to watch by playing for the win, not the entertainment value and fun. That belongs in tactica, not as one of the only 2 batreps we get for AoS a week.....

The majority of my comments on YouTube are answering viewer questions?

Unless you are referring to my response to a specific repeat viewer who does nothing but complain about me.

Now as far as the 17:00 fiasco I respect your opinion on not liking the rule, but it still is how the game is played and I would expect DavidWhite to use the same sort of tactics against me if given the chance

It's not so much about the rule as about the entertainment factor of the Batreps. That as I said is a valid tactic, just a terribly disappointing one to watch in something designed to entertain. If it were part of a "How to optimise play" series I could understand. Hence my reference to belonging in a tactica.

Yay I think. Overlords.... Aww nuts sodding Beastclaws..... Didn't watch, just skipped to the end.

Generals hand book 2 can't get here soon enough.... Slaughter fests aren't fun. I understand these guys are part of the game. BuT I have never seen them lose once when people no all there rules(quirk beat a young dude who never played them, and he forgot half their rules. It was still in at close) , and in fact I hardly ever see them loose a model. I just skip to the end to see if any models were lost for the beast claws. Usually not. Thanks for showing us the kharadron overlords though. Glad that josh had fun

Beastclaw should not be used against people who are clearly still learning the game or the army they are playing.

I think the thing I hate the most about beastclaws is the dirty snowball. A 2+ that does 6 mortal wounds?!

surrounding a vehicle before you kill it is a very standard move. complaining about it is strange.

always good to see David White, he's jolly

I understand that a lot of people are not too happy with this vid, and I myself do agree it wasn't particularly fun to watch since the Kharadron Overlords are my favourite AOS army and watching them get so utterly trounced like that is painful.

However, to be fair to Josh and DavidWhite neither player has any experience with the Kharadron Overlords. So Josh just played as any other AOS player when faced with only 6 models on the board. One tip to DavidWhite with regards to playing the Overlords is don't embark all your models when you deploy.

Another thing is that the Admiral can allow a skyvessel to run and shoot if he is embarked on it. Also, the Ironclad has it's own abilities that can help assist other skyvessels, such as "prove your worth" which adds 3" to the range of all missile weapons
 
EdwardH (6 months ago): - delete
There was a lot of synergy that DavidWhite missed just because he's still very new to the army.

Anyway, that's my two cents so I'm going to sign off now

Chozon1 (6 months ago): - delete
I came for the controversy, but stayed for the David White. He's just a cool guy, and I love the way his army looks. Those models are fantastic, and very well painted. I don't even play AOS, but I want one of the boats.

That said...Complaining about the 17:00 maneuver is a lot like complaining about buying all the properties on one side of the board in Monopoly. Is it nice? Not particularly. Is it the best strategy? Yes. Does that make you a jerk for doing it? No. It's just how the game is played. I would personally be offended, no matter how much it stings, if I played against an opponent who coddled me.

It's frankly an arrogant attitude. "I have you dead to rights, the rules are in my favor...but I'm going to go soft on you because I don't think you can handle it, or because I'm better than you, so I will graciously point out how much I own you."

That would sour a game for me far more than just getting the beans beaten out of me.

You know, a bunch of the AoS bat reps are a bit bland to me. Seems like a bunch of times it is just a rush to melee, then alternating CC hits from infantry for a chunk of the time.

The beastclaw raider bat reps though, I enjoy. I like to see what sort of challengers are tossed against them, and if they can win.

Hopefully AoS gets objective style games in the future. I know you guys have done a few scenario ones, and the ones that were not just "punch everyone in the face" were pretty sweet.

Honestly, was looking forward to watching some squa... I mean sky dwarves but that move (You know which one), while tactically smart isn't fun, for the players or the audience. In a tournament environment FINISH HIM, but charging to "not base contact" so you can completely surround him is pretty dickish in a casual/friendly environment which MWG typically gives off.

That being said, COME ON JOSH seriously? Trolling is all well and good but antagonizing the audience when they called you out on a pretty dickish move (in a casual environment) is petty in the extreme. You're better than that Josh, please hold yourself to a higher standard.
 
MWGJosh (6 months ago): - delete
DavidWhite got caught out of position and the unit paid the price. The environment is fun and casual but to not take an obvious move is a disservice to my opponent.

To be fair poking at Justin on Youtube is hardly antagonizing the audience. And if you look at his comment he actually defends my move and then calls me out for for producing boring content
 
Fraeyr (6 months ago): - delete
I understand, but that was just... rough. Very gamey. Look forward to playing you if and when I can come up.

So many rules missed.. didn't use flags from iron clad, didn't use the bombs when the frigate got charged turn 1, didn't use the iron sky squadron ability that gives frigate cannons plus 1 attack only in turn 1.

When a boat dies you also roll for all models and then choose which models die so the admiral didn't have to be removed...

Been waiting to see KO on here but like seems like warscrolls weren't really read properly



A very very wasted turn 1!

Drahcir1085 (6 months ago): - delete
josh, i think youre ogre utilizing thundertusks in your batreps, the amount of mortal wounds is simply ogrewhelming. that being said, ive seen kharadron ogrelords absolutely devastate them when they get to shoot so that turn one charge was quite lucky and well played

SemperSteel (6 months ago): - delete
Josh, don't worry, I love your Beastclaws. You and your ogres got me to buy my own.
