  • Just a point of rule clarification, Russ' don't get to fire twice with Grinding Advance during Overwatch. Only in the shooting phase. I wish though!!

  • Though the IG rolling certainly didn't help here, it's obvious who would win before the game even started. Scions are not bad units, but like all guard units they need numbers to be effective. A few five man squads, even kitted out with meltas and plasmas, isn't going to cut it against monstrosities like the DG. I understand the IG player likely didn't have enough models to field more (as they are expensive real $) but trying to replace them with tanks just doesn't work, as a single Russ is worth 2.10 man and a 5 man squads of scions. Likewise, Valks are just too expensive for their effectiveness. Cool looking model, but all your infantry could already drop wherever, negating the purpose of a transport. And if you need to give orders, you can take three more Primes for the Valk and still have points leftover for another squad of scions.

  • Not saying DG are not as brutally good as all the other 9th edition books BUT the dice on that first volley from the crawlers were super spiking for you there. number of shots for the D3 mortar, hits & wounds and damage for the entropy cannons. Shows off perfectly what those beasts can do if lady luck is on your side. Great fun to watch (unless you are rooting for the poor guard, haha).

  • Fantastic game as always, great fun to watch and two gloriously painted armies - but is it me, or are Death Guard now just a bit overpowered? Either that, or GW really need to update IG (codex and newer models, please. Not everyone plays fecking marines!)

  • When compared to the plague burst crawler, Leman Russ are so overpriced. They are good if you are rolling above average but they usually end up being expensive target practice.

  • The 14th Legion is looking good. Your opponent is a great sport but I think that some things in his list are not very strong against the Death Guard. Also your rolling was on point! "Roll better than opponent" is the #1 game-winning strategy if you can pull it off.

  • 55:30 just wondering, does the new disgustingly resilient works against mortal wounds? As in should you have taken 2 wounds instead there?

IG are weak right now and DG look absolutely gruesome to play against now. A great report despite the shortness... Your terrain, story telling and enthusiasm is as infectious as pappa nurgle.

  • Playing Guard these days makes no fun. Their points and rules does not fit to what the Guard should be and I am not talking abpout high competive gaming. The half of the Firepower does not hit (BS 4+) except for the Tank Commanders and Scions. Our Tanks and Artillery has so bad hitting because of the lost of the templates. Our Tanks getting destroyed fast with al lthat crazy weaponry arround, T8 and 3+ Saves is nothing aggainst it. And we have not enough Units of the Table to make it work. And the there are so much things that reduce auccuracy and damage so you just bounce off the Enemy. And we also do not have any cool Unit rules compared to other armys, its boring. Oh and most of our models are arround 15-20 years old. I play Guard for 17 Years now and I hope so bad that they just give some love to our iconic Army.

  • Great battle! To be honest, the new Death Guard seem like an extremely tedious and obnoxious army to play against. There is a serious lack of strength 5+, damage 1 weapons out there. I think that GW's theory was that massed shooting from standard guardsmen or the like would be efficient against them, but looking for 5 ups and hoping your opponent fails some 3 ups is just asking for disappointment no matter how many dice you're throwing.

  • Probably not the right list to bring. The new DR rule is only a buff to very specific situations, so if you bring (IG example) Hellhounds of various flavors or a Leman Russ Punisher, you are going to mulch the bloaty boys. Losing their default FNP also means they are (as an army) more vulnerable to mortal wounds. Its so strange to see battle reports where people are fumbling DG games as if they are some new thing when all that really changed is their effectiveness at closer ranges (from medium in 8E to medium and close in 9E).

    Shaun DominyShaun DominyTháng trước
    • I think it was largely due to Sultans list not being great (no offense meant) and him playing it too carelessly by offering his tanks up early on with little pay off (again, no offense). The death guard list is a well rounded list that plays to the armies strengths whereas the imperial guard list was a bit of a fun odd ball fluffy list that wasnt very well equipped to deal with this opponent. That said the death guard codex is new and death guard are definitely in a better place than guard who have an older codex. The discrepancy between codexes was definitely a factor but there are several imperial guard builds that could definitely have been taken to make it a fair fight
