Default Tactica Imperialis: What did you think?

Heya,

Well, I bought Tactica Imperialis on Tuesday, and I finished it today. I thought it was brilliant! It goes into real detail of how each crusade and regiment was formed, what tactics the Imperial Commanders used etc... Very inspiring if you collect Imperial Guard, but I don't collect Guard and I still bloody enjoyed it! If you love the Imperial Guard, I recommend you buy Tactica Imperialis.

Thoughts?

Never knew it existed, is it like a novel? is it from BL?

Do you mind telling what kind of tactics were used? I hope to god that it wasn't those god awful stereotypical human wave attacks.

No, each campaign had a wide variety of Tactics used, but I won't say anymore in-case I spoil it for others.

Do they have the Infantryman's Primer? (The one about reciting prayers before throwing a grenade, but after pulling the pin, or doing this huge ritual then hitting the on button, etc.)

I think the uplifting primer is out of print, but I could be wrong.

It'd be a shame though.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?
