"The Vanguard Tactics 7 day challenge has not only introduced me to the world of Warhammer 40K but has also helped me on my 40K journey by breaking down the game into steps allowing me to focus on one step at a time. Stepping into 40K I was overwhelmed and confused but the 7 day challenge has helped me overcome all of those doubts I had."

- Emma, VTA Student 


"My favourite thing about the 7 day challenge is that its so easy to use and I picked up all the important information up so quickly. It really helped me break the game down into chunks that made 40K feel a lot less overwhelming! As a beginner it was perfect! It set me on the right path in the hobby!"

"The 7 day challenge made me think outside the box by breaking down the phases and focusing on the tactics in each phase, such as move blocking. I also like how simplified the information is making it very easy to follow along and not get bogged down by rules."

I created the Vanguard Tactics 7 day challenge for the 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 incredibly 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 in only 7 days let my team and I teach you!
