About the workshop


After a sell out class at the LGT 2022 and the LVO 2023 the Vanguard Tactics Workshop is coming back to the LGT in 2024. 


This in-person workshop will be a mixture of theory and practical lessons with Stephen Box and the Vanguard Tactics coaches.


The purpose of this workshop is to help you feel confident enough to play against any opponent, on any mission, and against any army.  


Stephen Box and the VT Team will help give you clarity on how to develop a game plan, so that you play a more consistent game of 40K.  They’ll help ensure that you finish every game and understand what questions you should be asking your opponent at the table before every game. 


We all want to feel as if we gave our best in every game of 40K, not only playing with sportsmanship and fair play, but also giving every opponent an excellent game, taking the conclusion right to the wire. 


This workshop will help you maximize your experience at the LGT and beyond.  The intent is for you to leave our workshop with skills you can implement throughout every game of 40k. 


If you are feeling a little overwhelmed and would like to relax, our lessons and coaching staff will help give you a sense of calm confidence, so you can better enjoy every game at LGT.

Vanguard Tactics teaches 40k players to become great decision-makers, develop their skills to think critically while remaining composed and confident in their ability. In addition, they aim to promote lifelong participation in the game.
