FTN Episode 362 – Blood Angels, Oh How I Love Thee

FTN small squareThis episode is basically a love note to the Blood Angels.  The Codex Supplement is going to make a huge impact on this edition.  Towards the end of 8th the Blood Angels got really good.  This is a continuation of that and if this is your army, you are going to be happy.

Hey all,

In this episode we talk all Blood Angels all the time.  Stephen Box from Vanguard Tactics joins us early in the show to run down his initial thoughts on this great supplement.

We can all breath a sigh of relief knowing that the Sanguinary Guard are simply amazing still.  They do everything you want them to do and their point values don’t break the bank.  They suffer a bit from not being Primaris Marines but that is there the downside stops.

You can make a case for basically everything in the Elite slot making it a very crowded option.  This is a good thing as it is great for collecting lots of different units and giving you a host of different things you can rotate through on the table keeping your experience fresh.

The Troops slot benefits a TON from the new Assault Intercessors and if you’re a long time BA player and you haven’t picked these up yet, you’re gonna want them.

You’re going to hear a lot of people making comparisons to what is ‘best’ in this book and take heart – different opinions can both be right.  Mephiston is good.  The Librarian Dreadnought is good.  Death Company are good.  Inceptors are good..  The list goes on and on.  In the early days of this book do yourself a favor and just have fun with it.  I know I will.

For anyone who has read this far down we’ve recorded the first video with myself and Oscar Lars where we review a listener submitted model. It should be produced and ready to go mid November. Please keep checking back and if you have a model you’d like us to review for how it would stack up vs the Battle Ready standard and the Artists Standard, hit us up in a private message with a pic. This is coming soon- I promise!

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. We are now on Pandora!! If you’re looking for another place to listen or you’ve shifted to that platform you can find us there.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
