Chapter Tactics #4: Beating Battle Company

pablos logo

Today Pablo and his Guest go over the strengths and weaknesses of Battle Companies.

Hello everyone! I am back with another Tactical Saturday! This video was meant to be the third in the series however I felt like talking about Traitor’s Hate right after its release would be more relevant and entertaining. As always Chapter Tactics is a 40k podcast which focuses on promoting better tactical play and situational awareness across all formats of the game. For today’s episode Pablo and Brandon Grant go over Battle Companies and all their various forms.

Check out the Tactics Corner for more great 40k tactics!

    This pod cast is really great. Good insights and I love all the segments so far. You always seem very well prepared and the quiz is a particular highlight.

      Not that other podcasts aren’t well prepared! That was the wrong word. Language is hard.
