FTN Episode 417 – Genestealer Cult First Impressions – Are You Ready To Join?

FTN small square

We’re joined by special guest Dustin Henshaw on this episode knowing that he is a Genestealer Cult enthusiast.  He’s got a handle of the ins and outs of this book and an absolute pleasure to listen to.  We hope you enjoy the discussion.

Hi all,

Genestealer Cults are back.  They have a LOT of tricks up their sleeve and we run down the highlights.  The Cult has powerful new rules and some of their old favorite characters have gotten a ton of new rules, gimmicks and tricks.

Games Workshop was nice enough to give us a promotional copy for our review.

Like we’ve seen in all the books there are cool combos and passages from each of the sections in the book that you can layer on to make a unique force.

This book puts the Genestealer back in the Genestealer Cults.  We bet you’ll see a lot more of them in people’s armies than you have in previous editions.  Also.. I hope you saved your Rock Grinders and Goliaths.  These models have always looked cool but now they have some rules to match.

Let us know if you’re considering this army and if there is anything you’d like us to unpack from the Custodes and GCS dex’s.  We’re taking deeper dives next week!

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.
