Stalingrad: The Campaign

Army University Press in association with the Combined Arms Doctrine Directorate presents an overview of the German invasion of the Soviet Union in its documentary film, Stalingrad: The Campaign. Opening with Operation Case Blue in 1942, this documentary covers the German advance east and its eventual culmination. The film concludes with the Soviet counterattack, Operation Uranus, and the surrender of the German Sixth Army in February 1943. This film also highlights current U.S. Army doctrine as it relates to large scale combat operations, most notably in offensive operations, counterattacks, lines of communication, and sustainment of tempo.Visit our Website: https://www.armyupress.army.mil/

Showcase+Tactics: Blood Angels Deredeo Dreadnought

Just wanted to share one of my current FAVORITE UNITS. My Blood Angels Deredeo Dreadnought.Now you may be thinking "You play Blood Angels, why is this your favourite unit?" Well...1- Even an assault army needs some ranged weapons. And this guy is super reliable at that.2- I love dreadnoughts as much as I love assaultSome quick tactics talk with this guyDREADNOUGHT FORTSO I run mine equipped with the Atomantic Pavaise (I used a Magna Grapple I converted for my Contemptor back when they could still take one. This is because FW still has not released that upgrade). This gives a bubble of a 5+ invuln to units within 6".  So what do I do? I surround him with  TWIN AUTOCANNON MORTIS DREADNOUGHTS!

How does Crucible Guard Play?

My friend Seth asked me recently how Crucible Guard played, and my off the cuff responses were "gun synergy" and "Cryx with guns." It was text messaging and I hate writing on my phone (some of my worst tpyos happen there) , so I confirmed my off the cuff response with my other friend, Dan, who's played more Crucible Guard than Me."Seems like a good description," Dan said. And that was it.(To be fair, I did message him on December 24, and he did reply to me on December 25. Just because I don't celebrate the holiday doesn't mean that my friends don't...)So I turned these 30 second conversations into a blogpost based on 4 or 5 games and theory!So what I said was "gun synergy," and what I meant by that was you had a bunch of ranged attacks in the Crucible Guard that apply debuffs. The first notable one is the artillery. The Dragon's Breath Rocket has Arcing Fire, a 14" RNG, and an AOE that lowers the ARM of living and undead models.That last part again. "lowers ARM of living and undead models." Most warcasters an
