Art of War: Ep. 3.1 Nova Champion Richard Siegler Talks Tau Strategy


Part 1: Strategy Nick Nanavati and John DeMaris talk about list choices and overall Tau strategy with Richard Siegler. Richard Promptly went out and Won the Nova Open right after recording this. He gives lots of great insights into Tau and it’s worth your time to hear this discussion which provides great insight into playing with or against them.

    A link to the paetron page would be nice too 🙂

    Overall this was an amazing bit of insight. Almost makes me want to play tau – but definitely makes me want to play against Richard.

    Congrats too on your Nova Win – love the bit where you say you unfortunately won’t be able to go this year, then you win it (yes I know this was recorded before the event)

    This is a great series so far. I’ve found it quite informative about thinking about the different factions and how they play.
    My only critique is that the audio quality on the guests can be quite poor, but I’m sure this will get better in time.
