FTN Episode 297 – NOVA Predictions and Preview Reactions

FTN small square

The NOVA Open is an amazing convention run by some great friends of the show.  Jim Vesal joins Paul to give his predictions for the NOVA open singles and invitational tournament.  Some of the top players in the world will be gathered and it’s anyone’s game.  We then react to the Games Workshop previews and close out the show talking about ‘how’ to have an army list discussion

Hey hey,

After a brief introduction to the show Paul and Jim jump right into the mix predicting what will reign at the NOVA Open.  It will be interesting to see how close we become when it’s all said and done.  The mission format is a bit different than ITC missions the differences are subtle enough that people may bring a list they’ve been used to rather than something specifically for the format.

Those that are able to really thread the needle on the format differences may have a significant advantage.  The Win/Loss format is very unforgiving.

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.

Welcome to the Black Parade…   I’m talking about that new Shrike model, ha.  I love it.   We talk about that and the rest of the reveals from the Games Workshop preview.   Those in attendance were gifted a Cannones from the new line and it all looks AMAZING.

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.

We round out the show having a discussion about ‘how’ to discuss army lists with your friends.  Its a neat observation on how we interact with each other to help build the best army list possible but it’s also an exercise in how to collaborate with each other.

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.
