FTN Episode 288 – The Last Episode About Guard Lists

FTN small square

Its time for the rubber to hit the road and the Astra Militarum list Paul has been talking about will get its first test out in the wild.  We’re getting ready for the ATC, and a few tournaments in the Armageddon Series.  I hope you see you out there.  In this show we also review Warhammer Adventures and Contrast Paints.

Hey hey

For the Iron Man tournament coming up – 5 games in one day with social drinking – I’ve decided to go with a low mental tax list.  What I mean by that is that the stratagems are fairly streamlined. There are one or two things you do consistently every round so you aren’t having to ‘figure it out’ every turn.

We’ll see if it works out.  I think the list has enough tricks and a storm of lead to be competitive.  With a little luck I’ll make it to the podium.

Contrast Paints.  Are they magic?   Magic is real and the applications of these paints is real too.  While I am not having the ‘right out the pot success’ that a lot of others are seeming to have I have already worked them into my normal paint routine.  Just yesterday I was able to use Black Templar to one coat a Chimera’s tank tracks.  Like, seriously one brush stroke.  Guilliman Flesh is amazing.

We take a moment to review Warhammer Adventures now that I’ve finished the first book.  It’s good.  the 40k novel was an easy read and engaged my youngest son.  I highly recommend it if you were on the fence.

The hobby segment is basically about the application of the Contrast Paints.  There are tons of reviews out there.  The best one I’ve come across is Epic Duck Studios on youtube.  Please check them out.

The Wrong Way Kids will be putting on their first official public event later this year the Armageddon Series: Coastal Assault. Tickets are up for sale right now. Please join us. You will have a good time. It will be a full ITC format event and an excellent opportunity to get ITC overall and faction points.

Discount Games Inc. offers Games Workshop products at 15% off the suggested retail at their website here. You can send an email to the owner Jay. These guys run a podcast too! Check them out. I believe they currently have few of the GW Holiday Bundles still available too!

We proudly represent Firmer Terra as well. I had a great time speaking with one of the founders and I thought their offering would be PERFECT for a lot of gamers out there. Right now they are offering impressive shipping promotions to buyers in the US. Please check them out.

The hobby segment is about cleaning your resin.. It may not feel like you need to but you almost always do. You can save yourself a lot of time and heartache if do this extra step on the front end.

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.
