    • @nibble cookie one was used in the "charge" phase and the other was used in the "fight" phase. Technically two different phases.

    • @Play On Tabletop It was a really good game I just got a small question. The tau player commandpoint reroll a save on the battlesuit at 24:02 and then I cant workout how the tau player rerolls the damage at 25:36 the tau player already used the command point reroll that phase

  • I really like the converted chaos demons and defiler and other large models, but I strongly prefer the ordinary models and paint scheme for Alpha Legion and especially Thousand Sons (which are my favorite Chaos models with my favorite paint scheme, I love Rubric marines, and Alpha Legion is my second favorite, so I can’t say I’m a fan of what he did with those but oh well to each his own). I love what Nic did with his Vespid though, if I played Tau I’d want to do the same...

  • Hello I am new to this game. Why is it that when I go to search your models online I can not find them available for purchase on the warhammer website? Do certain ones have limited availability? An example in this episode would be the Daemon Prince, Plague Angel, and the Ahriman disc of tzeentch. These are the only two i can really identify accurately, but there were other larger models I could not find. I searched the whole list in youtube description on the games workshop website recommended by the 40k website. My assumption is either they are discontinued, or I am missing some abbreviation used by veteran players.
