FTN Episde 450 – Leagues of Votann Reveals! Are They Brutal?

FTN small square

What a banger we get to do for Episode 450..  The Leagues of Votann reveals are pretty exciting. Many are claiming these will instantly slot in as one of the most powerful armies in the game.   Is it all hype? Come check it out.

Hey folks,

Please consider grabbing an FTN T-shirt to help us celebrate the shows anniversary. The link can be found here. Proceeds will go to doing something nice for cast members of the show. The sticker is cool too and has been on my laptop for a year.

The Leagues are gonna be tough!  They have an amazing amount of new rules and weapon types the game has never seen.  Are they the best?  That’s such a hard question.  They are certainly going to bust out of the gate as heavy hitters.  The army has powerful shooting and durability without compromising anything in the close combat department.

The League’s powerful Judgement mechanic takes a little bit of the dice rolling out of the equation.  This smooths out variance by a TON!

Everything in the starter box is playable and good.  You will not regret picking it up.  You will use every single model on the table.  Not because there aren’t a ton of kits out for this faction yet.. it’s because everything has functional rules and abilities for the tabletop.

The Pioneers are a stand out choice.  For not a ton of points you get a massive amount of utility.

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. We are now on Pandora!! If you’re looking for another place to listen or you’ve shifted to that platform you can find us there.

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