Understanding how your Warhammer 40k Army works and how to improve your list writing

In this episode I interview newly appointed VT coach Logan Heath about how he has developed his Salamander Space Marine Army over the past 12 months.

Through trial and error, experience, adjustments and constant refinement Logan has developed a well thought out and balanced Salamanders army that is not only competitive but also very thematic. 

We cover how to develop a list that will work for your playstyle whilst covering some of the hottest Salamander combinations.

If you want to learn more about going through the same process and developing your army then this episode will be perfect for you.
