40k Game Changers Ep4: Nick Nanavati

It’s hard to think of any individual person, outside of rules writers and GW staff, who has influenced how we play the game of Warhammer 40k over the past few years more than Nick Nanavati.

Nick has played at the very top level since he was in his teens. He is always one of the first names mentioned when people are talking about ‘who to beat’ at tournaments, his lists are scrutinised online, and then copied all over the world.

He has also pioneered coaching 40k, is one of the very few people who makes his living in playing and teaching the game, has set up Art of War 40k with other top players, and has blazed his own trail.

In this episode he tells about the early days, how the tournament scene has changed, and also, hilariously, why his friends call him ‘the Tom Brady of 40k’.

Have a listen.

    You should do an episode with Keith Berry and the guys who run the league in San Diego. It’s the largest in the US and has built a template that other areas have copied. Pablo and chapter tactics did an episode with him a while back.
