update 17-Feb-2012:-

I have added a new "Polls" sub-forum which will contain some of the more common questions that new starters have about which army to collect. The polls will run forever so all the new members can also go there and vote and votes can also be changed as new army books, miniatures etc get released.

The Polls sub-forum can be found under "Announcements, rules & intros" on the board index or by clicking this link.





Volunteers list posted here for everyone's convenience...

as at 13-Feb-2012:-

Beastmen: Sigmar
Bretonian: Jetsam, Dalara, Warrior-preist, Sarpedon
Daemons: Jetsam, Lord Bob
Dark Elves: Grim Squeaker(?), Dalara
Dwarfs: Whitewolf14, MrSeb
Empire: Telepfenion, MrSeb, Lord Bob, Sarpedon
High Elves: Fingolfin (?), Whitewolf14, MrSeb
Lizardmen: ValledaFighta, Sarpedon
Ogres: Grim Squeaker
Orcs and Goblins: Lord Bob
Skaven: Shaved Dwarf
Tomb Kings: teclis
Vampire Counts: Jetsam, Lord Bob, teclis
Warriors of Chaos: Whitewolf14, Warrior-preist, Lord Bob
Wood Elves: Sigmar/Drummyralf



The MASTER TACTICIAN project

I would like to make the forum more beginner friendly. I'm hoping that if we help the people new to Warhammer Fantasy Battle then they will, in time, prove to become excellent forum contributors themselves (and maybe teach us a thing or two !)

What I'd like to do is put a "sticky" (or permanent) post at the top of each Warhammer Army forum giving a summary of that army, it's strengths, weaknesses, most valuable units, basic tactics (deployment, army selection, magic use, equipment choice, special characters), worst enemies, best foes and that kind of thing.

I'm looking for volunteers for each army. This can be a collaborative project so more than one person can work on each army together and share ideas before coming up with the best army summary.

I think this is a really important endeavour for our forum's future because when people can see we know what we're talking about and can give honest, unbiased (!?) opinions to help them get the most out of their new hobby they will really appreciate our efforts and become valued forum members themselves.

Because this feels so important and a real contribution to the Warhammer world I'm offering a LOT of reputation for people who take part (maybe 15+ for each Army - to be decided) which can be shared between the contributors.

I would like to reserve the right to edit your contributions to make sure they are all consistent and look similar to each other so new Warhammer players can easily compare one with another. I will post a standard "template" for each army once I'm confident we have enough interest to get this project off the ground.

Please post below if you are interested in playing a part and which army you feel you have the necessary experience and knowledge to comment on.

I think this is a great idea Sigmar. I'd be happy to contribute to Vampire Counts, Bretonnia or Daemons -- they are my main armies and I've been playing them for years.

I think I could work out something for the Empire, even thought way too few games under my belt with 8th edition for my liking.

So, what kind of feedback we are excatly looking for? In any particular styles? Sample armies and manouvers like in old armybooks?

I've been playing on and (largely) off since 1988, I can offer insight from my time at the table, Dwarfs are my main army, I could give them a go.

Although I also play Empire and High Elves.

Thanks very much for the response so far guys.

Telepfenion, I'll come up with a template format so all of the Army Tacticas will look the same. It will need to be fairly basic because this is for Warhammer beginners - I do like the idea of adding a simple easy-to-play army list (maybe 1,000 pts). I'll post here again once we have some more feedback and I'm confident we will be able to cover all (or most) of the armies.

I'm in. I could help with the Empire, Orcs and Goblins, VC, Demons, chaos. I also, have extensive experience for making fun and balanced games for stores as well. I was in charge of all the Game-workshop tournaments at my store, and I was a judge for many Hard boys tournaments for both 40k and fantasy. I also had to plan the complete years worth of 40k and Fantasy Tournaments, we alternated monthy!
