July 6, 2013

The observant among you will have noticed that there is a list of tactica “coming soon” on the right hand side of the blog.  Well, we’ve decided that the time has come to “fill in the blanks.”  But we’re hoping to do things a little differently.

We want the tactica to be more than a simple unit review.  Most of you can get that from reading the codex. What we want to do is produce a guide on how to use the unit, not a simple regurgitation of its stats and rules. So with that in mind we have agreed that, before an author writes a tactica, they need to have had experience of using the unit in most of it’s guises, over a few games, and be able to offer some sort of tactical insight into its use, not just a review if its stats and rules. We will try and keep theory hammer to a minimum!

We also want this to be a community effort.  So, the format we’re going to adopt is that the author will post his (or her!) tactica on the main blog for comment and “peer review," and then use those comments to revise the article before posting it in the tactica sections.

So guys, it's up to you to chip in and make these tactica good.

I'll start us off with a tactica on XV-8 Commanders....  but first I'll try to get through Clan Wars 2013.  Three games down, and 2 to go ... won 2, lost one so far.  Loss was against Newdar wave serpent spam .... nasty!
