The first thing you probably do at a tournament, after sighing dejectedly at the terrain you’ll have to play on once again, is take a look at the army list your opponent hands you- but how much do you actually know about what it says, and which parts of it are important?
This week, we take a look at how to understand what’s in an opponent’s list and what parts of it are going to be critical to the game; we might not be able to help you parse the Full Text Battlescribe Nightmare (no human can, it is a riddle in an enigma in a conundrum), but we can give you some pointers on what the likely candidates for your concern are as well as what kinds of questions you’ll want to ask yourself (and your opponent) about what is there. From there, you can build a battle plan and break down what their battle plan is, hopefully with the end goal of coming out of the match victorious.
Also, later this week we will have a special preview episode of our Patreon bonus segment, Crosstalk, where we chat lists, meta, and more general 40K strategy with a guest each week. If you’re interested, keep an eye on our Facebook page or Podbean for the inaugural event.
