So I thought I would kick this off to replace my old Lion's Blade thread that so many of you contributed to and made the topic much more successful.
As all aspects of a Dark Angels army are now considered competitive I thought we would focus primarily on Tactica that you can use in any of your games and then specialised Tactica for tournaments. I will be hitting Tournaments heavy for the rest of this year cause you know, 8th got me very excited, but also gonna be trying to keep up to date with all the stuff that comes out of the woodwork.
I want get your input as soon as possible primarily for unit combos but also things you have found about playing the game in general.
I want to go over a lot of basics but also dive into some advanced stuff also.
Cheers guys looking forward to your input!
Disclaimer: As long as this disclaimer is here, this thread is still under construction. Thank you for your patience.
The aim of this topic is to discuss Tactica for Dark Angels play in a competitive setting. Obviously you can then adjust these if you are playing a more casual or narrative game but the focus will mainly be Matched Play games using Points Values.
We will be covering all the units to give you a general idea on how they perform or how to use them but therer will also be a dedicated section for unit combinations with the way characters now work. List building is now more important than ever so it's best to build a list around a core focus and then add in supporting elements.
We will also be discussing Tournament play as they usually run custom missions. Tournaments will usually see a 2000pts limit as this is the new 1850pts from 8th edition. The most popular Tournament formats are currently:
Independent Tournament Circuit (ITC)
We will be covering the following topics:
Chapter 1: The Basics
Chapter 2: Advanced Strategy and Missions
Chapter 3: Unit Overview
Chapter 4: Unit Combinations
Chapter 5: Stratagems and Relics
Chapter 6: Current Tournament Builds
Chapter 7: Useful Links
