FTN Episode 346 – Are Xenos Factions Poised to Dominate 9th?

FTN small square

This show contains 99% less Imperium than most leading Podcasts. We focus on the Xenos factions in this show. We skate right past the Tau threat and speak more about Drukari in the first part of the show and come back after the break to speak about Orks.  We round the show out speaking about Kitbashing and assembling Push Fit models. Let’s do it!


The Taunar Supremacy suit is making another big splash right out of the gate in this edition.  There are some murmurs behind the scenes that maybe this thing was mispointed.  It’s so hard to tell with FW units these days.  They are either super good or just kinda ‘eh’ competitive wise.  If you stick with hobbying for yourself you can never go wrong but if a unit is ‘too good to be true’ and you’re buying it just to win games then make sure and pump the breaks to be okay with whatever you are setting yourself up for.

Archon Skari joins us this episode to speak about what’s working for him with Drukari.  Unsurprisingly it is vehicle spam but it is kind of neat to know there is an alternative to Grotesques and the Cult of Flesh out there.

Thanks for indulging us with the Tyranid talk last week.  This week we tip our toe into Orks as well.  Each faction is very difficult to completely cover in a single episode so we’re trying to spread the love around a bit.  Hopefully you find something to think about in the discussion.

More deep dives are coming, in one form or another.  The hobby section this week is about Kitbashing and Push Fit models.  The push fits have a tendency to not give you the tightest seals when you’re gluing them together.  We’ve got one solution you can try.

I mention this in the first part of the show but soon we’re going to be flipping a switch to convert the feed to something a little more robust on our side.  You should see absolutely no difference on your side but if a week or so goes by and you don’t see a show… come looking for us here to re-sub.  Thanks for sticking with us!

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.
