FTN Episode 431 – The Meta Is Wide Open

FTN small square

Matched Play is still playing catch up with the Balance Data Slate and during this downtime we’re getting speculative. Are Tyranids really public enemy number one this weekend?  The back half of the show is a hobby segment where we give tips about how to up your hobby game with no skill.

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.

We’re just scratching the surface of what Armor of Contempt is doing out there in the wide world of Warhammer.  So few players had all the 1kSons they needed ready to go but I absolutely believe we’ll see them taking the top spots by storm soon.  Can the same be said for Death Guard?

I think folks are sort of biding their time to see what Tyranids might do now that their codex is live and Knights on the horizon.  Either way, this is a great time to be participating in the competitive side of the hobby.  So many things are on the table…. Did you see what I did there?

Tyranids will absolutely be a dominating force this weekend and I must say, I hope the players enjoy it.  This faction has had some life breathed into it the last few months with Crusher but that should not cast a shadow of the warp over the fact that there are tons of long term faction fans who have been chomping at the bit to get their favorite minis on the table.

The back of the show is all about how to up your hobby game for any skill level.

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.
