Preliminary Update Notes (Date TBA)

We’ve been working hard trying to optimise, update and add new products to the Warhammer 40,000: Tactical Objectives App.  It’s been a time consuming process but we’re now finalising the iOS and Android builds in preparation for the Google Play and Apple App Store.

Thank you so much for your patience and support, it’s truly appreciated!

There is no confirmed date just yet but the features that you can expect to see are as followed:

New Faction Decks

That’s right, we’re now up to speed on the latest Tactical Objectives decks.  We have added the following to the app.

  • Tau Empire
  • Farsight Enclaves
  • Cadia
  • Raven Guard
  • Chaos Daemons

New Features

You asked and we have listened!  We took on board all your feedback about the app and have implemented some highly sought after features:

  • Users can now manually draw a card without changing turns
  • Victory Points can be manually added and subtracted from the total score
  • In App Purchases are now downloaded to your mobile device, saving you a LOT of space!

Fixed Bugs

  • Fixed intermittent scoring issues in Space Marines deck

Known Bugs

  • Sometimes the mission won’t display the correct amount of cards on Turn 1.  We still don’t know what causes this.  If this happens to you, a simple restart of the apps play session should fix it

WH40k: Tactical Objectives App FAQ

Warhammer 40,000: Tactical Objectives App

 Here is a compilation of frequently asked questions by the community!

Q: How much is the app?

The core app is £4.99 which includes the regular deck and missions. As a bonus we have thrown in the Cities of Death tactical objectives AND included the missions from the Shield of Baal: Leviathan book.


Q: How much are the faction decks?

Each faction deck is £2.99. By purchasing the core app and the faction deck of your choice, you essentially get 3 decks for the price of one physical deck. BARGAIN!


Q: What platform is the app for?

Currently iOS and Android devices.

iPhone 4 – iOS 7.x and above

Android – Ice Cream Sandwich


Q: When are new decks added to the app?

New decks are added around two weeks after their physical counterparts have gone on sale. There maybe delays depending on complexity of the cards needing to be added. Also we are a very  small team at the moment.


Q: Will you be reducing the app size

Yes it is one of our top priorities. We will be reducing the app size by uploading unpurchased decks to an FTP site.


Q: Will there be a feature to get rid of unwanted cards and then manually replacing that card for houserules?

Yes, this will be added in a future update.


Q: What plans does Derp Studios have for the app?

We have many plans for the app. The core purpose remains the same, which is to provide players with copies of Tactical Objective cards, however we are looking towards making this the ultimate
companion for the WH40k tabletop game. We also want to add in a few features to make tournament players lives easier as well such as:

• Tournament session timers (tournament matches last about 2 hours each roughly)

• Card history (review what cards you scored and discarded)

• Faction based missions from the Altar of War book (included in the faction decks at no extra
cost…when we get around to it)

• Mysterious Objectives tracker. Because no matter how much you play 40k, people always have their nose in the rulebook trying to remember what each one is. This feature will generate, store and be re-viewable throughout the game session.


Q: Will there be a card history? A way to review cards you have achieved and discarded?

Yes, in a future update this will occur.


Q: Do you know what other objective cards are being released?

We don’t usually know until about a week or so before the decks launch. Or we find out in White
Dwarf like everyone else!


Q: Will the Psychic Power cards be included in the app?

Not at this moment in time.


Q: Will the app support two players?

The app will only support one player.
