FTN Episode 433 – Are You Ready For The Next Event?

FTN small square

This show is largely about getting those 10 points for Battle Ready in Matched Play Games.  We hide it in several topics throughout the show.  Hopefully you enjoy the ramble and the special guest (Kicker) we have in the middle.

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.

This is a fun show where we cover a bunch of different topics but still keep a focus on tournaments and how to get ready for them.  We chat about all sorts of stuff like testing, painting and display boards.

We mention the Games Workshop US Open Series event coming up in San Diego too.  I really hope to see you there.  This is my first time in that part of the country and I’m really looking forward to it.  Mmmmm Tacos…

In the middle of the show Paul is joined by Kicker Kalozdi.  You can just feel like this dude loves his job and cares about putting on a good show for people.  If you aren’t familiar with what he does right now please check it out both on Signals from the Frontline and the FLG Events/Tournaments.

The last part of the show we talk about Display Boards.  This topic is heating up and is interesting.  Do we over value or under value them when determining ‘best painted’?  Do some events require them to consider your army Battle Ready?  Do some tournaments require them to give your army max paint points?  Should they?

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.
