Archon Skari joins us this week from the SkaredCast.  He talks about his journey inside the Blackstone Fortress.  We have a hobby segment this week then we talk about some secret Space Marine tech – Spoiler – C-beams are good.

Hey all,

Skari has been digging the Blackstone Fortress recently so we wanted to have him on to talk about it.  Are you playing this board game?  Fancy miniatures and a campaign style experience really make it attractive to me.

In the middle of the episode we emphasize the need write down your paint recipe for bases and models.  Coming back to a project you’ve had sitting on the shelf for years can be a real problem if you can’t remember the colors you chose.  Write down what steps you took and the colors you used.

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.

Past that we talk a little bit about how to make up for not remembering using oil washes.  Remember – care and cleaning of your brushes is a LOT different.  The materials involved in oil washes are decidedly more toxic that the acrylic paints you’re used to working with.

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.

Write down those paints you use!

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.
