FTN Episode 395 – How to Be True to Your Hobby Self

FTN small square

There is new stuff GALORE coming down from GW and we talk about it in the first half of the show.  The last half, towards the end, we talk about how to be true to your hobby self to prevent ‘hitting the wall’ or burnout.

Hey folks,

We’ve seen a ton of teasers from the Warhammer Community team over the last few days including things from the Horus Heresy line. With all the stuff going missing from the Forge World site I really didn’t expect to see this.

That game is so driven by the setting and fun to hear it is getting some much needed attention.  Believe, I am not complaining that its been a bit since it has since we have so much other stuff but I know the folks that play the game really eat that stuff up.

We fawn about the lore and some books for a bit to close out the first half of the podcast.  Do you have any favorite parts we’ve missed?

After the break we run down a few of the Ork teasers.  We are getting the impression from folks who have the book as part of the limited edition release that the book is good but may not have the power to stand up the Dark Eldar and Ad Mech.

I think that really remains to be seen as more Ork generals need to get this book in their hands and get their minds wrapped around the combos and strats!

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.
