Hi, I'm in need to advice of how to go about helping someone else not just learn the game, but also learn how to use their army.
Both me and my dad have been collecting warhammer since 5th edition, however we have very rarely played many games. This summer I have been running a mini campaign with my Dad of his Empire vs my Orcs and Goblins, we're both still learning 8th and it just seemed like a fun way to learn the rules. However the problem is 8th is very much in favor of big blocks of infantry and I have run my Orcs and Goblins accordingly, my Dad on the other hand prefers to field lots of small units with no magical support at all, so far he has been tabled every game. Here's what we ran in the last game.
Night Goblin Boss with Shrieking Blade, light armour and shield
Orc Boss BSB
Night Goblin Shaman level 2
5 Wolf Riders with short bows and musician
29 Night Goblins with spears and shields, standard, muscian, netters 3 fantatics
24 Orc Boyz with addition hand weapons, muscian, standard
15 Squigs with 5 handlers
Rock Lobba with bully
Total - 999
Captain with warhorse
10 Halberdiers with full command
10 Crossbows with full command
20 Spearmen with full command
10 Archers with full command
10 Handgunners with full command
10 Swordsmen with full command
5 Pistoliers with muscian and outrider
Total - 998
Ideally I would not want to resort to either deliberating weakening my army or writing up army lists for him to play with every game, however I don't want to discourage him from playing by beating him constantly because of his bad list. How do I go about helping him improve his game?
thanks in advance
