Hi guys, just wondering what you guys do, or the best way to do this is?

I see people on battle reports of youtube have the tactical objective cards, I can see those are available from GW as a pack of cards you can buy.

But I am guessing these wont include the codex specific ones?

GW lists in the army sepcific datacards - "36 Tactical Objectives, including the 6 specific Objectives from Codex: Tyranids."

So, it includes the codex specific ones, but also others, what are these?

If I want all the cards I need to play, do I need to buy the generic 40k objective cards, and then each armies datacards also on top?

the codex specific cards are Stratagems - Tactical objectives and specific Psyker powers or C'tan powers.

the generic 36 pack of objective cards is as you mentioned not the special codex ones, but you can play them and replace 11,12,13,14,15,16 with the ones from your codex, the rest are identical and found in the BRB for if you want to roll dice instead.

To play at all, get the cards, or roll D66 and look in the rulebook.
The generic cards are nicer than D66, and make those games much easier to keep track of.
Codex-packs have more than just the objectives cards. They have the IG orders, psyker powers, chapter tactics, etc. They are very useful.

If you buy an army’s cards you don’t also need the base pack, in answer to your question, OP.

Each army set contains the objective deck with cards 11-16 replaced with faction-specific cards instead of the generic ones.

Just keep in mind a lot of them are going to be outdated due to errata to the stratagems and in the T'au's case errata to the actual card itself because GW can't even copy and paste from the codex correctly.

They are completely optional. You would be better off making your own. Some nice cardstock is only a couple of quid and almost any stationary store will have cheap A4 lamination services.

You don't need the cards but they are nice to have if you play a specific army a lot.

One of the advantages is that the new Chapter Approved 2018 missions allow you to "tune" your deck of cards to remove up to 6 that you don't like.

Works really well to get rid of things that don't suit your army or your opponent's army. Like... Blood and Guts - kill a unit in the fight phase. Yeah my guard army have literally never done that so OUT YOU GO
