Master-crafted 40K: Introduction by Kenton Kilgore
Kenton KilgoreWinning is good. Winning on a consistent basis is even better.

If you don't believe the two previous statements, then this series of articles is not for you. Because the aim of these articles is to teach people how to win battles: not by cheating, not by being "cheesy" (whatever that's supposed to mean), not by acting like a jerk. But just by knowing good, solid strategy and tactics. 

What you'll find here isn't tedious detail covering every possible opponent or circumstance--that would take forever to read and you wouldn't remember a tenth of it in a game. No, this series offers easy-to-retain nuggets of knowledge and wisdom that will immediately, perhaps dramatically, improve your play. 

Is it wrong to "play to win?"
Occasionally, you'll hear someone say that "playing to win" is wrong. Certainly, it can be wrong--if winning is the only thing that matters to you. If you "play to win" by breaking rules. If you "play to win" by being rude. If by winning, you lose friends.

But "playing to win" is not inherently bad, in my humble opinion. Warhammer 40,000 is, by its nature, a competitive game: at the end, there's a winner and a loser. "Playing to win" forces you to grow as a player, to improve your skills, to become better at the game. And if you have regular opponents, it forces them to get better too, if they hope to have any chance of beating you!

Meet the masters
Each article in this series deals with a certain element that you must address if you want to improve your play. The authors are friends (and opponents) of mine from The Millenium Gate forum. Each has a reputation for being a cunning general with an impressive battle record to back up their words. So sharpen your pencils and get ready to take notes, kids: school is in session.
