FTN Episode 423 – Codex Aeldari Review – Wow!

FTN small square

Codex Aeldari is up for pre order this week and it is SPICY.  There is so much packed into this book it is easily one of the largest Codexes we’ll see in this edition. We barely scratch the surface but cover a ton of good stuff and hopefully get you all lathered up in anticipation of the new rules.  I’m excited.

Hey folks,

Please consider grabbing an FTN T-shirt to help us celebrate the shows anniversary. The link can be found here. Proceeds will go to doing something nice for cast members of the show. The sticker is cool too and has been on my laptop for a year.

Holy smokes…  the Aeldari are going to make a huge splash in the meta.  Folks who have been worried about Custodes and Drukhari and Admech or any of the other boogey men out there need to add Codex Aeldari to the list.  It is powerful.

With that said it seems fairly balanced point wise.  Generals will really need to chose what they include in their force and might get bogged down in a list full of good things and not really have a good list.  There is so much depth and options in this book that is supported by the three factions represented and seemingly designed from the ground up to work together.

Each and every single one of the Craftworlds seems playable.  We call out Biel-Tan in this show because I play it and we go on to expound that it is everyone’s favorite anyway, probably right?  I mean.. that sounds right.

The hobby segment will be back 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.
