FTN Episode 391 – MSU vs Horde – What is a better in 9th?

FTN small square

It looks like we may see a shift in this edition that allows for larger units of base troops.   We discuss the virtues or min squads vs max squads and everything in between.  We try to figure out if the game is pushing us in one direction or the other.

Hey folks,

Are big units the best?  We jump right into a discussion we about what the best unit size is and how that may influence your play style and secondary choices.   With the way Sisters and Ad Mech have gotten larger troop unit sizes we also speculate a little bit on what might happen with the Guard.

I think we come down on the side of larger units there is a big case to be made for transports and how their use may influence the squads you ultimately take.

After the break we talk about the real world concerns and implications surrounding team tournaments.

Most of us on the show have a lot of experience with these type of events.  We speak about the obstacles that you may not ‘think’ you have to worry about but can greatly contribute to your overall success during these weekends.

Team Tournament contenders need to get good at logistics, HR, project management and a list of other task but even though there are weighty words why is this so fun?  Ha!

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.
