FTN Episode 226 – Adeptus Custodes Part 2 – Tournaments and How to Beat Eldar

FTN small square

We cover a range of topics in this episode.  We revisit the Adeptus Custodes book and cover some of the Relics and Stratagems we didn’t before then we get to a difficult topic currently making the rounds about Tournaments.  Then we shift gears to cover the Eldar menace!

Hey all,

In the first part of the show we talk about Adeptus Custodes and just how easy it is to include a potent force of these guys in your current Imperium based army.  These dudes are rock solid and stack up pretty well against most armies.  They have a wide range of relics and strategems but there are a few clear winners.

The next part of the show we talk about ways to make high stakes tournaments a little more fair for everyone involved.  We try to separate Sportsmanship from procedural things that are in control of the TOs.  We try our best to not just ‘give solutions’ because everyone has to come to these answers on their own.  I just hope that we can help keep the conversation going in a positive way.

Then we get to Eldar..  These guys are strong..  Even more strong when you can combine all of the rules from the Eldar, Ynarri and Dark Eldar into one list without penalties.  Still, all hope isn’t lost and we break down three of the main power pieces in the Eldar force and how to counter them.  Of course we don’t go over every scenario but we hope you equip you with enough information to find elements in your own index or codex that will help you win more games.

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.

Paul goes on and on about Athonian Camonshade.  This product is right up there with Nuln Oil and Agrax Earthshade.  Its a versatile product that yields predictable results.  What more could you want?

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.
