40k Tactica: Mastering Objective Marker Placement


Hi guys! Good 40K objective placement is a skill every player must master. Here’s how.

Dean from Blog for the Blood God  here with my latest tactics video.

Today we discuss objective marker placement and how close to mid ranged armies can use it to gain an advantage over gunlines!

Things like placing markers as bait to lure enemies closer and placing them as denial markers to control your opponents placement.

Here is the video, give it a watch and lets get a conversation going below 🙂

    That is actually a really nice tutorial, thanks!

    I’ll have to wait until I get home to watch the vid’. I was slightly perplexed that tutorial produced by a site called “Blog for the Blog God” wasn’t more of a text based.

      I was thinking the same thing (I believe the proper term for a video blog is vlog), except that I won’t be watching the video from home. I make it a point to never watch videos on this site that do not label themselves as such in the link or intro blurb that they show under the link.

      Throughout the entire video, what they were saying was also written off to the side. So it’s a v-blog or a b-vlog or maybe a balrog.

        Well, I got around to watching it and that was informative and entertaining and contained words, pictures and beer.

    this is a neat starter idea.

    everything counts.

    it’s the first lesson i learned after i started playing. every choice, every action, every option counts. every time you make a decision of your own free will, or can seize the flow of the game and make an opponent do something, it has an effect on the end of the game.

    Another way of doing it is space them all out evenly. Voila.

  • Pwnigiri

    This guide is stupid – you place objective markers BEFORE determining deployment halves, so how can you know which side will be your opponents?

  • Peter Bernier

    I liked this. Nice work!
