LOL Welcome brother! It's good to see our ranks swell, surely it will benefit our discussions and tactics as a new codex looms on the horizon. We have alot of knowledge and opinions here, so jump right in to reading some threads and posting advice/asking questions.

If you feel the need to say more, perhaps you could tell us if you have an army, what it's like/consists of, and your 40k experience?

Thanks for the warm welcome brothers

currently my 40k armies are gd old SM (who hasnt got or had them) and my faithful Grey Knights

my GKs I've had almost a year consisting of

8terminators
1 with psycannon
1 with incinerator

20 Grey knights
4justicars
3incinerators
1psycannon

2 dreadnoughts, one with all weapons, the other from Black Reach

and 1 inquisitor with plasma pistol

so far I've played around 100 games ish, quite low as i only recently began playing again and its pretty plain that i suck so bad with em that I've only ever one about 5 of those games. and there only against my m8 with orks at that.

i know... its baaaad..... lol
im still struggling with some of ours rules and the actual idea of having a batte plan in ur head from the word go, i just sort of advance and die lol. today i managed to forget completely the rule of shrouding after the many many shots fired upon my army.

Remembering the rules takes a good 20 games in so without a long break in between games, don't worry, you'll get the GK feel back.

GK are generally considered in the very lowest tier of Warhammer 40k, with only necrons in the same range. You definitely need a plan to win against good players with a good list! I like keeping track of battle reports to help me with this. Not only do i have a cool story to tell and for people to comment on, but I also can see exactly where I went wrong, and see what would help next time.

Perhaps a good idea for you would be to write down a plan during/after deployment, and then before each movement phase remember to do your "Planning" phase and look at what you wrote down and see if your doing this, so you get used to following a strategy instead of doing gut reactions each turn with no overarching plan.

While i didn't literally write it down, i did this mentally in my last game against footslogging Orks. Point for point, these orks could outshoot AND out assualt me, and i knew i'd resort to my standard anti assualt strategy of retreating into a ball and slowly loose troops till they all hit me at once. Instead I picked the strategy "Pretend to be in the middle, then overload one side", and each turn i would move my units to spread out in the middle while sneaking more to one side. Because the 1-2 middle squads were spread out, they looked more numerous than the multiple squads on one side, and i'd always throw a few more shots to the one side. A turn before the WAAAAGH was coming, i started beating feet hard in the direction i had choose, already weakened by my bolter fire. I overwhelmed the one side of his army with my entire force, and was then able to turn around and face the other half without facing an entire ork army at once. It really helped!
