Huge shoutout to the community and coaches at Art of War for everything they do. I discovered the War Room community during the pandemic and it became the place to learn about the game from some of the best to ever play it. The high-level battle reports and tactics videos hooked me and I knew I wanted even greater in-depth analysis so I contacted Nick and did his coaching sessions with much success.
At the time, I was playing in a TTS league tournament so being able to pick his brain about various matchups and how best to learn my army proved invaluable as I ended up winning the 150 person event. I then was able to lean on him for his wide array of connections in New York, where I live, to meet up with other like-minded Warhammer players. Some of my now-closest Warhammer friends are people Nick introduced me to, which never would have happened were it not for the community-driven nature of the Art of War.
I continue to be impressed by the competitive content the coaches put out – in fact, I “borrowed” Jack Harpster’s Custodes army list for the 2022 LVO and managed to reach 3rd Place, only losing to Richard Siegler himself. In my first ever game against Siegler, whose battle reports I had watched countless times, I found him to be as much a gentleman in person as he is when playing with the rest of the Art of War coaches in their stream room. Our game exemplified good sportsmanship and high-level decision-making, coming down to a final dice roll to determine the winner. I can’t recommend Art of War highly enough – their content and services are a must-have for any player looking to level up their Warhammer game.
