Gaming Tip: Armour Penetration

In order to get enemy units off the table, strategically one of the things you can do is to employ weapons that have high Armour Penetration which would make it harder for your opponent to make saves against wounds.

Gaming Tip: Unit Selection

One of the fun things about the hobby is adding units to your army; for those who aren’t really into the the minutiea of the game then go ahead and add whatever looks good to your collection but as I am learning; if you want to be able to win some games then you’ll haveContinue reading “Gaming Tip: Unit Selection”

Gaming Tip: Invulnerable Saves

As I get more Warhammer 40K under my belt, I realise one of the more useful abilities for a melee-based army is to have an ability or equipment that confers Invulnerable saves is crucial.

I think… One thing to note aboutContinue reading “Knowing Your Opponent”

In order to secure Victory Points players are rewarded for accomplishing 2 sets of objectives: The Primary Objective of the Mission being played Mission Secondary Objectives or Faction Secondary Objectives You get more Victory PointsContinue reading “Playing to the Objectives”

Pre-Game Preparation

As I gain more experience gaming I realise that familiarity with the faction you’re playing with is key and that’s why I’ve been spending a lot more time playing Warhammer 40K games with my Novokh army. Prior to my last match-up against Edward, I spent quite a bit of time going through my Necron CodexContinue reading “Pre-Game Preparation”
