Still thinking about it?

 

How to know if you’re ready to take your gameplay to the next level at The Vanguard Tactics Academy?

  1. You've just entered the world of Warhammer 40K you have some knowledge of how to play, maybe you've completed our basic training course, and you want to make sure you've got all the knowledge before you start playing on tabletop.
  2. You've been playing Warhammer 40K for awhile now and you are not seeing any improvements in your gameplay.
  3. You are ready to take the hobby more seriously and put in the money and hard work it takes to master 40K.
  4. You are already putting your time and effort into learning more about Warhammer 40K.
  5. You are worried about attending a tournament and not knowing what your army can do or that your list isn't right.
  6. You are excited to improve your game play and surprise your opponent on the tabletop.
  7. You are ready to connect with likeminded people who want the same things as you.

I can’t wait for you to join The Vanguard Tactics Academy

Over the last two years, I have dedicated my time teaching and coaching Warhammer 40K players the tactics and strategies that I used to become one of the top 100 players in the world.

The VT Academy was designed with players just like you in mind. Players that want to be confident in building their army list and facing their opponents, making strategic decisions and preparing for the next tournament.

No matter your starting point, the Vanguard Tactics Academy will take your tabletop gameplay to the top level. Leave behind the frustrations of losing and get more enjoyment from playing.
