The tiles says most of it. I currently have 1 full game of 300 pts under my belt. In that game, no Fireteams where used. I have been getting much of my knowledge through the power of the internet, forums, youtube, blogs ect.. I do not yet have the experience to know really understand the value of certain things in this game in a practically. One of them being defensive tactical units and battlefield positioning. I know this is probably a wide topic spanning many situations but I think it would be a great topic to learn about. I would like to make this thread about the following. What makes a weapon defensive What makes a weapon an ARO choice? How is this weapon used on the battlefield? What makes a troop profile better at defending? What makes a troop profile an ARO piece? How is this troop used on the battlefield? What is a defensive fireteam and why is that so? How is this fireteam applied on the battlefield? How to defend against hackers? Some of the common things I read/hear about are snipers and missile launchers. Another think that gets thrown around is "defensive link". I'm not really sure what that is. As far as a defensive battlefield setup goes. I learned that is usually, you want to deploy your models in total cover if you are going second. And obviously you want limit the LoF to a troop poking it's head out to cover a lane. Thanks for your input.
