FTN Episode 159 – Can Codex Chaos Space Marine Make a Better Gladius?!

September 1, 2016 ftnadmin 1 comment

FTN small squareEpisode 159 is here! Warhammer 40k podcast where we combine tactics and hobby talk all in the same place.

Hey Everyone,

We totally switch gears from the last few shows and turn our eyes on the Chaos Space Marine codex.  We have some rumors about what the supplement Traitor’s Hate is going to be but nothing concrete at the time of the recording.

In place of too much rumor talk we get in to a little wish listing around the middle of the show but during the course of this Andrew proposes that Chaos may be able to make a better Gladius with less wasted taxation units if you’re going with a rhino base build.   Eh?  What the heck?  There may actually be some potential here.   Personally I think the loyalist marines still have better base rules (that we talk about on the show) but who knows what Traitor’s Hate will hold?

Chris Morgan took a big step this week and bought his first airbrush.  We kick around some ideas about what the best air compressor for beginners is.  No matter what you hear on the show I still believe in going pretty cheap on your first one.  Hit up Harbor Freight, use a coupon, and use it till it breaks.

The Finishing Moves segment this week is about getting started with drilling out barrels on models.  I completely suck at this.  I did a model recently and posted it on twitter @warmaster_tpm and someone suggested I drill out the barrels.

I asked how?!  People were kind enough to share some ideas and we talk about them.  The other guys also kick in their experiences to make a pretty cool segment.  Please let us know what you’d like us to cover in this segment.  We’re going to try and do it every week.

Thank you and Enjoy!

Forge the Narrative is mostly a Warhammer 40k Podcast. Each episode is about an hour long. This ideally gives you something neat to listen to on your way to work, or on the way back home. Maybe you can even listen while you are painting or modeling!

Please follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook!

FTN mostly focuses on 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
