So, do you want to win more of the tabletop wargames you play? Well I have packed these pages with as many tip and tricks that will help get an advantage on the gaming table!

What Secret Tactics Will You Find?

Over the years last 30+ years that have been playing wargames and studying wargame tactics I have accumulated a wealth of tactics. You will find these tactics in these pages.

Be prepared to dig around the site to find these gems. But when you have these gems be prepared to spring your new master strategies on your helpless opponents (manic laughing in the background)!

Table Top Wargames vs. Board Games

Table Top Wargames are different to board games because you have much more flexibility in the movements and strategy compared to board games. The other main difference is that table top wargames have pieces of scenery to play around. These scenery pieces could be make-shift, like a pile of books representing hills and buildings, up to very realistic set-ups much like you may see on a model train setup.

Tactics Vs. Strategy

There is a difference between tactics and strategy, and not many people know what it is.

Tactics deal with the abilities of different types of each troop and vehicle. When to use each type and the best configurations for particular situation.

Strategy deal with how to win games as a whole. How to use all your army together, for example the art of sacrificing a squad to win a battle.

This site covers both these aspects. The Army Lists will lead you each army squad by squad discussing the pros and cons of each. The General Strategy section leads you through the most common strategies pointing the way for you to create your own cunning plots and manoeuvres.
