    seriously though, these are good tips you guys post up… II don’t get to play as often as I’d like to develop some of these on my own so its nice to benefit from someone else’s dirty work!

      Happy to help! These, I hope, show that tactics overcome lists or any of the other stuff you hear people talk about. The better player usually wins and these are ways to play around a list mismatch or crummy mission.

    Loved the little comments in the video this time hahah definitely added to your story telling ability Reecius. I agree with TrueKnight, its awesome to see these tactics shown and actually explained because just this last weekend I got in a rules debate because I used this tactic to assault a 20 man blob of Imperial Guard that was twin linked. I could see my opponent going Muuuahaha! (Because of his devious planning of knowing I would charge him and presciencing his unit) I shall kill at least 3 in over watch!, but only got 1 because of my positioning. Of course he got really pissed and I had to rules lawyer and go, No it says right here in the rule book you follow the NORMAL rules for Line of Sight, Range, etc.

      Yeah, people don’t know how to play the rules correctly more often than not and it, unfortunately, can cause issues. But a mature player will realize that they are the one to blame for ignorance of the rules, not you.

    So could you not also try and get only one of the unit your charging in LoS to your gribblies so only one of their models gets to fire OW?

    Imagine that tactic when charging from a landraider, you get out mostly on the side…
    Also a good tactic for rhinos (if you did’nt get out this turn). Oh no that right, transport vehicule are total crapp this edition…;)
