"The Academy has helped me have more fun at the tabletop. I just wanted to share with everyone that on Saturday I had my most enjoyable game of 40K in all 20 years of it. The list clinics have built up my confidence in list-making, the mission-specific lessons helped me understand how to really plan for scoring, and Stephen's insistence on taking a minute off the start of every turn to have think helped me maintain awareness of myself and the game to a degree I never thought possible. And I even pulled off a feeding move from the advanced lessons! Thank you Vanguard Tactics."

"I have been signed up to the academy run by VT for nearly 6 months now and haven't regretted it at all. An engaged community, weekly lessons and regular interaction with Stephen and the team makes it a very worthwhile venture."
