FTN Episode 424 – What is the Best Aeldari Core Troop?

FTN small square

What is the best Troop in Codex Aeldari?  That will always depend on what else is in your army but this codex makes a compelling case for several at face value.  We run down the virtues of the choices in this slot.  We’re saving Harlequins for next week..

Hey all,

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.

People will be looking at this book for a LONG time trying to figure out the best way to come about this.  I think a lot of folks will shy away from the large blocks of troops in an effort to get more of the juicy elite choices into their list but am I wrong?

We take a look at the troops selections available to most Aeldari players.  This includes some new options in the form of Corsairs.  They have amazing models but is what you get enough to offset a more traditional choice is what we try to figure out in this episode.

We know it really depends on what else is in your army or your ‘intent’ with secondaries or how tricky you want to get.

The hobby segment is back! This time talking about custom bases.  If you want to see the results Paul always posts up on twitter and instagram.  Links below.

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.
