Welcome to the Warhammer 40K Tactica Articles Forum
What the Tactica Forum Is
First off, this is the place to go for in-depth, codex specific tactica articles. If you have a question such as "How do I equip X unit?" then please post it in the Tactics forum where your fellow Heretics will be glad to give you advice on that specific topic.
This forum is for guides on how to use the given army, unit, etc rather than just a generic "You should focus on shooting with Tau."
Submitting Tactica Threads
While writing a Tactica, try to keep in mind your target audience. Avoid abbreviations and acronyms to make each article more reader-friendly.
The Tactica forum is a bit different than every other subforum on Heresy-Online. Once you create a thread, it is not automatically posted to the sub-forum, it must be approved by the forum Moderator before it appears. I will be regularly checking each subforum to ensure that I stay on top of the articles.
However, there is currently a sizeable backlog of submitted Tactica Articles. I will be concentrating on getting these proofread and edited to ensure that the Tactica is updated and uploaded. If changes need to be made in terms of grammar/structure/spelling, I will edit the threads accordingly prior to approving them. For those that need to be edited for content, I will approve with a warning post to edit the thread. If the thread is not updated in a satisfactory manner within ONE WEEK, it will be sent to the recycle bin.
I'm not trying to be a dick with your tactica threads, however the way to make this a truly successful corner of the forum is to keep it with the most accurate and best information available.
Over the coming weeks, I'll be going over, cataloging, and editing EVERY existing tactica article. An Index thread for each sub-forum will be built to ensure that a listing exists for all up-to-date articles. Threads that are no longer relevant due to outdated Codecies will not be included in the Indecies and will be left to die. If you have a Tactica Article that is currently out of date and is not included in the Index and you edit it post-facto, then feel free to send me a PM to add it in accordingly.
If you are trying to request an in-depth article from your fellow Heretics, we do allow you to make tactica requests. Please format the title as the following:
However, keep these requests in the main Tactica Articles forum, not in the army specific forums, as the threads will not be approved.
When/if a responsive thread is created for a request, I will post a link to that response in the request thread and then close that thread.
6th Edition is Looming...
With 6th Edition fast approaching, we as a community need to ensure that our tactica articles are up to date and current to facilitate the transition to the new rule set. The key to making these forums successful is you!
