Ultramarines Vs Nids: Livestream Preview.


Date: Thursday 16th February 2023

Time: 7:30pm

Location: Twisted Dice Youtube Channel.


Introduction


Preacher here with another livestream preview. Tonight we have one heck of a clash for you, a clash of the Titans!


Arks of Omen has been out for a few weeks, and Ultramarines are quickly becoming one of the best factions to play with. We brought in someone everyone can learn something from to play them, Introducing the UK Number 2 (literally) Adeptus Astartes player Sean Capewell! (UKTC rankings)


Sean not only is UK number 2 but he also has his own Pro-painting studio called Tibblesevilcat, he is so popular that he currently has a 10-month waiting list for his services! Go Sean!


To face Sean we asked someone who is equally special, so secretive he hides from the limelight, you will be lucky to even see his face! He can also play 40k pretty well as well, I give you Mickey!

Seans List sees him making the most of the famous Ultramarines redeploy stratagem... with him heavily leaning into Infiltrating Units... Sean's list is also very manoeuvrable with the Impuslors and suppressors.


Marines have come down in points and almost play like a glass-hammer army, they die quickly but hit very very hard... let's see if Mickey can weather the storm of firepower from the Ultramarines.

How times have changed, it was not that long ago that we saw Nids rocking the top tables but times have changed and they have been hammered on points! Gorgon seems to be the Hive Fleet establishing itself as the most effective in this new ark of omen world.


The question is, can the nids weather the storm that Sean will bring? If he can Mickey will be able to really punish Sean...


This is a game I am really looking forward to and could be close. See you tonight.
