Hopefully this thread will act as an index for all other essential areas of the tactics forum. Its main aim is to organise the various tactics with references so that developing and improving the tactics at ones disposal becomes easier.

If people could suggest other tactica to include and reference it that would be appreciated, I've done as much as I'm going to do tonight!

A while ago I did a tactica for Shadow Warriors http://www.ulthuan.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=33177, If you wanted to add that I'd be thrilled.

Ok this has to be one of the most vital and awesome posts out there on this forum. Please double sticky it and add 5 stars.

For people like me who play like every 6 months, or even regulars, you get a snap shot of the competitive builds at the moment. So much better then trawling through countless of posts most of which have little value add.

Thanks Andrew_UK.

When I created this I intended it to be an living document, that means one which is constantly being updated. I've been away for a while but having come back I notice that enemy of the month has started up again (long overdue as that was immensely useful when facing an army you hadn't come accross in a while!) and I notice that there are now more army blogs than ever before. These are excellent and ought to be shared and listed here but they seem to be spread over tactics, army lists and battle report pages. Could people please pm me or write in this thread if you have anything to add to this index; tactics articles, tactica on lores, tactica on units or army blogs.

Thanks!

Updated to include the new enemy of the month (well over due it's return and thanks to Pash it's back). There are loads of good development blogs around on this forum, more than I've ever known anywhere, but I haven't been able to keep up with them all quick enough. Post your development blog/recommend someone elses article and where you would like it to be filed in the index ect. I seem to vaguely remember a player on here who had a very unusual list that did amazingly well for him which had nearly entirely core apart from a BotWD BSB and a BoH archmage... and another player had something like 4 characters with both the seafarer bow and the reaver bow all being used... anyone remember who did these?

Andrew, like I mentioned here:
viewtopic.php?f=66&t=35586

I have a lot of information posted on my blog about High Elves but I could never get any of it transferred here. The mods are all inactive, and has been for the last past year. I'm just trying to help the Ulthuan community with articles written for 8th. Everything in the current Library is old and outdated and I just want to see it updated.

Go ahead and dig through this. You'll find a lot of info there.

I will be making a strategy guide for each Enemy of the Month released too. That should keep the army specific tactics fresh and updated.

Hi Andrew!

I was honored by the fact you included my topic about army building but I believe it no longer belongs to the Cavalry Hammer cathegory. :) If you still consider it worthy it is probably good idea to add Multiple Small (Swordmasters :)) Units approach.

Cheers!

Are you seriously asking someone called Swordmaster of Hoeth why he has more swordmasters than white lions? Really?

Hi Andrew. I think this topic belongs in your overview as well: Magic Item Guide

Not sure which category it belongs in, otherwise I would have simply added it. Have a think on it :)

I tried to keep on top of this a while a go but ended up taking a long while away from the game... I made this so that people who only play occasionally can still get a quick refresher on what the standard builds are and how to approach different armies even if they haven't played for a while. People pretty much like me I guess :lol:

I took the time away from the game for a multitude of reasons, part of it being that I really do hate 8th edition (in case you didn't know by now lol) but that doesn't stop me wanting occasional games here and there, as and when.

I have just updated the above to include John Rainbows magic item guide and if people could send through any other tacticas which they believe merit a place on this index I will endeavour to put them up over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks!

I noticed a write up on Lore of Metal missing from the Tactics: Lore Selection and Use section and as I have been using it a lot thought I would write up a summary of ideas and uses.
