FTN Episode 342 – Dan Abnett Interview!! I repeat – Dan Abnett is on this Show!

FTN small square

Dan Abnett joins us this week for a wonderful chat.  We are incredibly honored to have him on and you don’t want to miss this.  Later in the show Adam, Red and Paul talk about assault in 9th Edition Warhammer 40k.  This is a jam packed DOUBLE sized episode.

Hey all,

We kick the show off with the legendary Dan Abnett. It was such a joy to have him on and we hope you enjoy it too.  We talk about his current and past works and dive deep into some of the things he enjoys.

We get to hear just a tad about what it’s like being in the Hours Heresy writer’s room and his interaction with the other authors as they share characters to create this amazing series that has captivated us for decades.

Like I mentioned above this is a giant double sized episode.  The last half of the show we talk about Assault in 9th.  Counter Assaults has been afforded whole new set of luxuries that will make the ABC General (always be charging) have to be even more careful that they were before

This edition seems to be shaping up to benefit ‘multi purpose’ units.  Quality unit will either need to be aggressively pointed or be able to tangle in both the shooting and assault phases.  We’ll have another episode coming shortly behind this one talking about army list creation and the new points.

We work in a few comments about a couple of the new stand out Stratagems from War of the Spider and Engine War.  Admech and Custodes are definitely factions to watch,

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.
