So, I started this initiative called the Bromad Academy. It's intended to encourage players to try new tools on the table and spend time afterwards thinking about it, specifically to improve and broaden their play.  You can read the full Mission Statement if you'd like.  In any case, after talking with folks at Best of the PNW, I decided to start posting the missions here.

It's really important to note that this initiative is NOT Nomads-only! If you play another faction, please consider writing in, and you will get an equal chance at winning the free blister that I raffle off at the end of the month.  I didn't want to talk about something I didn't have experience in, and it's good to limit the context of discussion at the start, so that's why it's Nomad themed.

All you have to do to participate is just play a game following that month's mission parameters, and write in to report@bromadacademy.com with your thoughts on how the game went. Pictures, battle reports, etc. are all optional (but encouraged). Really what we're looking for is a discussion of what happened, for context, and then they why and the how of the decision making in the moment as well as what you learned afterwards.

In any case, here's this month's mission, which is basically play with TAGs:

Sorry for the late posting, but you've got two weeks left in the month to participate, then it'll be on to the next mission!  Thanks for reading.

A little late thanks to the flight home from Adepticon, but here's the final report from March's Bromad Academy Mission to use (and abuse) TAGs. Actually seeing some Lizards on the table, doing spec-fire shenanigans!
 


Thanks to everyone who wrote in, and as if to reiterate that Bromad Academy is open to _all_ players, random.org chose @Zelaponeepus (a non-Nomad respondent), as this month's blister winner!

April Showers bring May Flowers. You'll be watering those flowers with the blood of your enemies, because this month's Bromad Academy is all about close combat! Remember, _all_ factions are eligible to enter--lookin' at you, JSA players.
 


Just write in to report@bromadacademy.com. Battle reports not required, but there's a template for you in the linked article if you want. Pictures preferred!

A bit of a random treat! We've been discussing a how to improve our play speed locally, and apparently the folks over in Poland have been thinking about it too, because they reached out to me to collaborate on an article about play speed!

Here it is, courtesy of Bromad Propaganda and Bromad Academy:

April's half over, so here's the mid-month update with some tactica on using Nomad close combat units. Definitely translatable to other factions, though:
 


We've got two battle reports already, and we're trying to encourage discussion, so if you've got any questions or comments on the battle reports below, fire away!

Looking forward to hearing from folks. Send mail to report@bromadacademy.com! All factions welcome!

Happy June! We'll be taking a look at 3-man cores in this month's Bromad Academy mission. Don't fill out your core to the full 5-man maximum and increase the flexibility of your list building and your positioning on the table. All factions are welcome, please write in to report@bromadacademy.com for a chance to win a blister of your choice!

Happy July! We're now a full year of Bromad Academy missions in. Thank you to all of our respondents thus far. I hope we see more folks contributing from outside of the Nomad Nation as we continue to do these missions!
 


This month is all about TO camouflage. Use it in a game and write in with your thoughts, tips, and strategies to report@bromadacademy.com for a chance to win a blister of your choice! All factions welcome!

November's mission: Deploy, play the first turn, take notes, and do it all again!

Pair up with a newer player (or a pro if you're new) to help each other work through tough deployment decisions and see how they play out on the table! As always, write in to report@bromadacademy.com for a chance to win blisters and patches!

December has rolled around, and it's time to balance work, family, and the holiday rush! Why not balance your combat groups as well!?

Play a 13-15 order list, split the combat groups evenly (7-6, 7-7, 8-7), and write in to report@bromadacademy.com for a chance to win a blister or a Bromad Academy patch!
