Back of the Napkin
Does anyone else draw shit like this? Maybe I'm just crazy. Lemme quick splain. Probably the most fun part of 40k for me is building armies, so I do this a lot when I'm bored: draw out with little circles and simple rectangle tanks to see what a particular army construction might look like in abstract. I think I've done it since I first started playing. I know plenty of my college notes are decorated in the margins with little guard, space wolves, and tyranid formations.
It's more about understanding the general appearance of the ranks than creating some kind of battle plan. I assume this is because it doesn't really help in the chaos of an actual game - the deployment phase takes two to tango. But who knows? It might help me in some strange way to better organize the various elements of my armies. Or maybe its just another doodle to let me zone out.
Drop me a comment if you do something similarly tragic and maybe I'll skip the sanitorium.
