Episode 301 and we’re talking about Space Marine Troop options.  We cover the ones we really haven’t spoken too much about in the past and that’s a shame…  For my persona list I think I’ve settled on the Incursors but please give it a listen and tell us where we go wrong.  It’s nice having way more than two options to talk about though…

Hey all,

I sort of gave it away in the intro paragraph but there is a lot of variety in the space marine troop section now.  ‘Why’ you’re taking what you’re taking is a much better question to ask now.  You’re not just trying to fill up a battalion or two, you can get some real value out of your troop slots now.

It’s not just a tax or a chumps that will sit in one place on the table.  We hint around this but you get to actually play with your figures again and they can be an active part of your strategy and not just derpy troop pawns.

Please please please check out the new Forge The Narrative objective markers. These things look awesome. Ordering a set is a good way to support one of our sponsors AND the show. Find them here.

In the show I discount the use of Stormhawks.  Since recording I’ve come full circle on that for Iron Hands so expect a little bit of a reversal on that next week.

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.

We’re delighted to continue to represent Discount Games Inc as sponsor of our show. They are helping bring FTN to you. Please check them out and support the organizations that support us. 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.

No real Hobby Section this week but we do want to hear about how you’re getting on with army list building.  The meta is ripe for change right now and it’s only getting better.

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.
