Matt Root

I’ve been a competitive player ever since the start of 5ed.  I’ve played in over one hundred local tournaments and dozens of national and international 40k tournaments. I’ve had success with every army in just about every format – ATC, ETC, ITC, NOVA, team tournaments, and even leagues! I was even lucky enough to be ranked as the #1 ITC player in in the world in 2017.


If you’re a player who likes to hit hard and hit fast, I’m your guy. I specialize in aggressive armies such as Imperial and Chaos soup, Orks, Tyranids/GSC, and Dark Eldar. The virtue of these lists is that they are strong in any meta, are fun to play, and are often underestimated in their virtures – tactically speaking, aggressive armies are some of the most rewarding armies to play. They are easy to learn, but hard to master – my role is to help you bridge that gap. 


I’m a firm believer that success in 40k relies on strategy well before you hit the table. Any coach can provide you with a list and the strategy of how to play it, but I don’t limit my coaching at that. My clients not only learn tactical acumen, but also skills such as the effective analysis of an opponent’s list, how to adjust for different tournament formats, and how to keep your list strong in a constantly adjusting meta. At the end of the day, my goal is provide you with the tools to be successful not only now, but also for the rest of your time as a competitor in Warhammer 40k!
