Chapter Tactics #69: Summer Hype and Imperial Knights

Chapter Tactics is a 40k podcast which focuses on promoting better tactical play and situational awareness across all variations of the game. The guys talk about the upcoming Summer tournament schedule, and what to expect coming into 8th edition’s second year. Peteypab talks about what he likes from the new Knight Codex.

Show Notes:

  • Just a heads up, I was incorrect about the costs of the new Imperial Knights, which mean’s Val’s Gallant list is a real possibility.

      Thanks for the heads up! I realized it after. The number in my notes was wrong. Which of course, was the number I went for.

        I think the Gallant is going to be quite popular as he is both cheap and becomes a beast with some of the upgrades available.

      I mean, it’s got rednecks, hillbillies, yokels, and wahoos, that’s pretty South to me. Plus, it’s got a plunging economy, creepy backwoods towns where they haven’t discovered plumbing or electricity, religious crazies, tons of gun violence, and a school system so backward they think that it’s still 1948- all the hallmarks of a proud Southern state.

    Also, two more events that it is way-too-late to shout out to for the podcast, GCWA in MS on june 9-10, and the Dallas Open on june 16-17. Everyone forgets the southern GTs…

        I’ll keep that in mind, thank you! Love the pace at which tournaments are growing right now.

          I know, right?! So exciting, I think everyone can feel it becoming more and more of a thing, not long before we have a pro league and all that fun stuff I think. WHo knows, we may one day have stadiums full! Anything is possible =)

    With the upcoming Knights, what would be a good counter as a Space Marine + Deathwatch player. With priority on Infanterie. I have about 20 hellblaster in my curent list but think this would be not the apropriate firepower against Knights and such things as the only anti-tank.

    This is a little late, obviously…
    But is it even possible to take the 5 gallants anyways considering the Matched Play rules not allowing you to take more than 3 copies of the same data sheet?

    I really want to take 5 gallants, but I don’t think its possible. 🙁

      No, it isn’t. Val was being facetious there.
