I have enjoyed these. I have been playing for about 24ish years. And these are things already doing but definitely like them brought to verbal form. This reminded me of when I realized the Stalker was a better platform than the hunter most of the time. Well done mates!

I reviewed my first army list I’ve been playing (monodex Deathwatch) with SACRED and it’s about 95% infantry distribution. Back to the drawing board! 😀

I’ve been having a hard time playing the game with the list and was about to the point of giving up on the hobby as I keep getting tabled Turn 1 nearly. Glad I found this series and have been watching it several times since subscribing and starting all of my lists over and applying this to the new list in works for me (Thousand Sons).

Late joiner to the party, but just wanted to say this is a great series.
Well done, and thanks!

If its still under consideration (I know its been said a million times on this thread a couple months ago), would absolutely love a SACRED template! As much as a default Battlescribe has become, I do miss good ol fashioned pen and paper so an excuse to go back to it with a sheet that could be printed out so that one could organize everything logistically AND work otu tactical kinks in the same place would be invaluable. Also just great work, I know it gets said a lot anyways but really, since subscribing I have kissed the youtube rabbit… Read more »

Interesting wrap-up! I’ve applied a similar logic path drawn from my experience with military systems acquisition that also considers unit interface conditions as they relate to cost/kill ratio. I love the way you’ve broken it down in a simple path. As the saying goes: You don’t understand it until you can explain it.

Excellent stuff, guys. I suppose adding M to the end of SACRED would ruin the cool name, but Bone’s point at the end really did stand out as crucial!

The template would be great. Already sat down and rewritten lists, swapping units out for more efficient ones.
Love the lessons keep up the great work.

Great series and very helpful! Applying it to my list helped point out where I could improve esp. with the duality/overlapping AIM categories.

Also +1 for the list template!

Great series, gentlemen! It would be really cool to see you build, live, a list for a given faction (or mix of) using these tactics to help people see why you’re choosing certain units, what roles they fill, and your rationalization of finding and picking them out of the codex!

Lawrence is it possible to adapt S.A.C.R.E.D. to an age of sigmar list building ?

Guys thanks for putting this together, really thought provoking. Got my first ever tournament next year and am working up a list taking on board you wisdom. Annnnd waiting for Chapter Approved and the new Calgar to drop and make my Ultramarines truly Ultra. ??

Thank you very much for taking the time to film and present S.A.C.R.E.D. to us. I would love to see a template. Great work guys!

As you said: Having something visual can be so helpful sometimes, so I would really like if you could create such template.
Anyway great and very informative series, looking forward to DRAGON. Keep the good work up!

Hive tyrants are a great example. High mobility with deep strike, fly and high movement. Rate of fire with 1 or 2 pairs of twin devourers, psychic with cast 2 deny 1, and combat with 1 pair of claws or talons. Active in every phase of the game.

Dear TTT Team,

I know this is weird to ask you guys, but I can’t find it. Are 25mm not allowed at LVO/ITC events? Do Orks have to be on 32s? The Boyz.

Thanks in advance, and for a useful Tactica vid!

I would love to see that template. loved this SACRED series and I’m now really looking forward to DRAGON. cheers guys!

Love Bones last comments. I have played so many games where players fire something such as a twin lascannon and you can see that there expectation is for 2 hits, 2 wounds and both will do 6 damage each on the D6 roll. Their natural mindset is to expect 12 wounds from 2 shots. It is odd but I see it so frequently and it means a player has no allowance for anything less than max wounds. In contrast to that I always play something like that with the expectation that 1 of those shots will both hit and wound… Read more »

Deffo +1 for the roster as a visual learner (and most people are to a certain point) whilst watching and listening to you guys explain S.A.C.R.E.D has been really helpful when I’m making lists, a visual aide would be the next step in fulfilling this. Thanks for the great series can’t wait for DRAGON.

Loved the series, guys. Hope to have my first tournament at the end of next month and will be applying SACRED to…well, probably limit the extent of my humiliation, to be honest!

To echo what one or two other commentators have said, maybe a short video per army with SACRED applied would be great: Chef with Necrons, Lady Beard, Stygies Stig etc…

Can’t wait for DRAGON now!
