Video Battle Report: Tomb Kings vs Skaven

Here's a first for Strictly Average, a Video Battle Report for Warhammer Fantasy.  This game pits my Tomb Kings against Sam-I-Am and his Skaven.

We're still fairly new to Warhammer at the local game store, so forgive the unpainted miniatures and any mistakes we may have made.

Let me know what you think.

Nice battle report.

It's amazing how much more subdued the batrep is when you film on a weekday! I liked it. Good job splicing in the photos. It made it to where we didn't even need you commentary. (That's not a suggestion!)

I also liked a preview of what I might see in tomorrow's tournament.

Brent said...

Thank you!

(For those who may not know, that's the MM(esno)'s version of high praise. For example, I only show him a miniature I've painted if I'm prepared for the letdown - he's harsh, he is! The upside though: when he tells you something is good that's gospel.)

I love seeing Fantasy content popping up everywhere. It makes me happy I want to see how everyone else is fairing and what is winning people games so I can get better. (That's the problem with getting massacres nonstop... Your not learning anything if you don't fail)

Anyway are you sure that wasn't sarcasm on MM(esno)'s part? Seems like Sarcasm to me...

Master Manipulator (every store needs one) said...

It was really just a little less juvenile way of saying....First!

Jennifer said...

Lol, love it! I see why you have such a thing for MM(esno) Brent. I always wondered why you were always fawning over him.

Dethtron said...

ughhh your voice :)

oh and seriously "goesser" was my word verification.

Goesser Dunkel ist eine von meinen Lieblingsbieren. Oesterreich- Fick Ja!

Brent said...

Jenn... You know you just accused me of having a thing for the Master Manipulator (every store needs one).

That's wrong on so many levels.

Just because homo-erotic humor and ass-grabbing are encouraged art forms in the flgs doesn't mean anything.


Jennifer said...


I figured the High voice had to come from somewhere.

And hey, I said nothing about Ass grabbing, don't project your fantasies on me. =D

Brent said...


What high voice?


Master Manipulator (every store needs one) said...

You know there is at least a slight man crush there...come on...you know it.

It's ok. I understand.

Dethtron- MGD 64, because I have to watch my slim girlish figure. Das Stiefel!

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
