Today Pablo and his special guest go over the tactical merit of the Traitor’s Hate book. Does the Chaos Space Marines faction have the tools now to compete on the top tables?
Hello everyone! I am back once again for another tactical Saturday. If you don’t know yet Chapter Tactics is a 40k podcast which focuses on promoting better tactical play and situational awareness across all formats of the game. Today we are highlighting the Good, Bad, and Ugly in the new Traitor’s Hate chaos space marines supplement. We are also going to help all you imperialist hating traitors get the most out of this supplement and give you a shot at being top tier armies.
- I was unable to find a copy of James’ list floating around though I’m sure he can post it in the comments. Here is the list he won the Broadside Bash with.
- What are some of the Good, Bad, and Ugly things you guys see in the new book?
- Where do Chaos Space Marines stand at the competitive level in the ITC? NOVA? Your FLGS?
