FTN Episode 209 – Is Smite Too Strong?!

FTN small square

We pick up where we left off with the Astra Militarum coverage this week by discussing a couple of interesting Relics and going over the new psychic powers.  In the middle of the show we chat with Pat from the Table of Ultimate Gaming and in part 3 we discuss a couple of potential ‘fixes’ for Smite in Matched Play.

Hey guys,

I hope you caught my short video on Youtube where I talk about the new Hellhound variants.

In this episode we chat about two of the new and very powerful Relics in the IG dex.  Both of these have the potential to get inside your opponents head.  This is important because it won’t take much to put them on tilt while you’re raining rockets on them from range.  Speaking of range… we will have a show soon to talk about how assault can work, ha.

We talk about a few upcoming events in the last part of the year and go into more detail about the Friday Night Events happening at our even Warzone: Atlanta.

Before the hobby segment we talk about the point disassociation between the models casting Smite and how powerful Smite is.  While we don’t ‘solve’ the problem we do wish-list a bit about how we could consider fixing it.  The Smite talk starts around 1 hour and 10 mins in.

We spend some time with Pat from the Table of Ultimate Gaming and see how their KickStarter went and discuss how people can still take advantage of the campaign price breaks.

The Finishing Moves segment is sponsored by Frontline Gaming. Their new mats are now hot off the presses and getting ready to be shipped. Please check them out, even if you already have a game mat. Their new styles are very impressive. If you haven’t already get your tickets NOW for the mega Las Vegas Open.

We talk about Batch Painting this week.  Assembly line style specifically.  This technique can really shorten your time to table if you plan it out right.  We talk about a few things that work for us.

Anyways, my friend has just bought a couple of unranked league accounts, so we’re going to go check them out and see what all the hype is about.

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.
