"I joined the Vanguard Tactics Basic Training course back when it first launched. I'd done my best to learn as much as I could prior to joining basic training but knew there would be things I might have missed or not thought about as a beginner. Once I signed up I was happy to see how the basic training course broke everything into easy, digestible bite sizes. I can learn at my own pace and access the course via my mobile phone too which comes in extremely handy when I am traveling. Im happy to say after completing the course I continued my journey as a student on the VT academy and I now play for VT and am proud to have such an amazing group of like-minded people supporting me!"

"3 words I would describe Basic are FUN, ENGAGING, COMMUNITY. I would definitely recommend this course for those who wants to elevate their game. Be it for a casual match or those looking to challenge themselves in the tournament circuit. The week was packed full of great lessons but the best one I feel was Game Escalation when we got to put everything together. Also getting to talk and hangout with the VT coaches was an added bonus. Thank you VT.  I also discovered a few more friends in the class who shared my love of the game."

“To those wondering if this Basic Training course is for you, the answer is a resounding YES! I am virtually brand new to Warhammer. I bought my first models back in October of 2021, played my first game in November, then joined my LGS first league in January. I figured I could just learn as my 10 week league went on. I went 0-2 in my first two matches and felt like I just needed the game of 40k spelled out to me in simple but concise details. That’s when I found the VT Basic Training. I didn’t play my next game until I completed the entire course. What happened over the next 8 weeks was… unexpected. I went 8-0 and finished 8-2 in my 40 person league. I qualified for the Top 8 Store Championship, went 2-1 and finished in the Top 3 to then qualify for the Top 8 State League Championships and as the only Space Marine player (Salamanders)! I eventually finished 6th overall, but I just felt so lucky to even get that far!

I created the Vanguard Tactics Basic Training course for people who are interested in playing Warhammer 40K but don't know where to begin.

I know first-hand how confusing and overwhelming 40K can be at times but knowing what to focus on and the basics will make your journey a million times easier!

It is an exciting experience discovering Warhammer 40K for the first time; the multiple diverse exciting armies, the amazing range of terrain, and the immersive storylines, but then you get to the rules...

There are A LOT of rules!

There are; the basic game rules, the individual codexes for each faction, and not to mention the mission rules!

All these different rules can make it very difficult to navigate your way through the game and confuse you on where to begin.

This is the exact reason why I created this course, to remove any uncertainty and allow you to focus on the many exciting aspects of gameplay!

So if you want to learn how to play 40K, let my team and I teach you the right way!
