I’ve been working on a bunch of 40k tactics videos. Breaking down the different phases and discussing some of the tactics involved. It would be great if I could get some feedback on what you guys think.

If anyone has any ideas for topics to cover then let me know.  So far we are thinking of doing list design, screening, breaking screens , shooting phase.   Its been a lot of fun shooting these and actually get me thinking a lot more tactically about the game.

I have enjoyed the videos so far. Very good information.

 

For some topics maybe you could do something about target priority/choosing targets. Making sure you commit enough firepower to bring something down and not assuming average rolls to get the job done.

Yeh that is really important stuff. we are going to do that in the shooting phase video , little bit on math hammer - how many las cannons to take down rhino ( it’s a lot more than most people think ) Risk management and over killing targets etc . Target priority.

I'm probably rubbish for advice but ensuring synergy in a list  I think is really important. Characters are expensive and their bubbles are great but if they're being used on units that going to benefit from them maybe invest elsewhere. For example Lieutenants reroll 1s to wound is really useful, but is more useful with heavy weapons to guarantee wounds than bolter fire because even if you reroll it they may still need a 4/5 rather than a 2/3. Also I run Dark Angels, so I rarely sue masters unless  I'm going mobile because my gunline stands still a lot, so they reroll 1s anyway so can you invest the points on something else instead?

I little off topic but I’ve tried to do a current video on the new 40k meta post faq. I had a chat with one of the team England 40k players who have recently ran a tournament post faq. https://youtu.be/A5_8CJ7S77I

I’ve tried to make a battle report with my dark angels for a bit of fun. It’s actually really interesting trying to film these things .

Let me know what you think . Obviously trying to improve the quality of them.

I think going forward they need to be a bit shorter.

Enjoying the videos. On holiday with crap WiFi so I'll check out the battle report when I'm home.

There are lots of long battle reports out there. I think there is a gap in the market for more condensed battle reports with phase summaries. I think it was canhammer who did some really nice condensed ones in around 25 minutes.

Nice stuff! Can definitely use the extra tactical advice as I'm currently engaged in an escalation league. laugh.png

 

Keep it up!

I’ve been trying so new shorter tactics videos now. They seem to be much better received. I think the 5 min mark is about right .

Check them out below.

ive been having a bit of fun doing a video on flyer movement blocking as i think that is very common in tournaments at the moment especially with imperial knights around.   The fun bit is coming up with ways of countering it.  Let me know if i've missed anything.

Just subscribed! I was thinking about the flyer blocking just the other day before I saw your thread. 
You lost me on the heroic intervention, I thought that only happens in your opponents assault phase?  I still have to watch your Heroic intervention video.  I also have to look up what you mean by auto explode. Do you mean they are destroyed or that they explode. And if so exactly where would they be when they explode. I'm asking because I am currently fielding Buran Bombas that do explode on a 4+ and inflict 3 mortal wound, I am keen to get the most out of that so I am fielding 3 or 4 of them.
I had thought about using Flyers to block first turn assault armies, deploying them in the front of my deployment zone, probably not the best idea if the other player is a strong shooting army but maybe against another Ork player, could be good.  

I'll have a look through you channel, thanks for sharing.

the flyers are destroyed if they can't move their minimum distance. They would get a chance to explode i guess ( you would role ).  Would have to look at the rules to be sure on that one ( will say in the main rule book under the flyers section). Heroic intervention happens in your opponents turn only.  I was trying to explain you can perform a heroic intervention with the knight into the flyer to move round them ( Heroic intervention isnt a charge so you can pile in and consolidate with the knight but you are not allowed to attack)

hope that helps

I did reread the rules and even under my Burna Bomba entry it requires the unit to be reduced to zero wounds so I do not think it would get a chance to roll to explode. 
I find it completely odd that HI can be done against a flyer by a non flying model I would think that was a rules oversight I hope they clarify it in the next faq, they may not even know it's a thing people are doing.  I did watch you pile in video today, most helpful.

Ha, maybe they will tighten up the heroic intervention at some point. I like to show a counter to tactics, such as flyer move blocking , as well as show how to do them. Keeps it fair that way :-)

Glad you liked the pile in video, the assault phase is my favourite part of 40k for sure: https://youtu.be/_TM6BlHN_cc

So I've been going back to the tactics videos- The latest one is on charge phase tricks and tactics.  There are so many fun moves to set up the assault phase and move around the board.   https://youtu.be/7yXsZFlk6lY

 

STTAB - the Ravenwing will be returning very soon - hopefully against the Deathwatch is it all goes to play next week :-)
